Air Frying is the Gen-Z of Cooking

What is taking over America’s hearts and the definition of easy cooking? An air fryer. It’s quick, simple, and has little clean up. What’s not to love? Although it doesn’t require a huge list of cookware, there are many different recipes you can try out in your air fryer. You can cook an appetizer, main course, and even a dessert. Air Fryer Fanatics has one of the most impressive food blogs for air frying that I’ve seen. One of my favorites is the Air Fryer Buffalo Cauliflower. Tastes like hot wings but is slightly healthier…I think? Head on over to check out some of their innovative meals for you to try out!
