Cooking for Two is Easier Than Ever with Your Air Fryer
The air fryer has taken the world by storm! No doubt that by reading this, you either have one or are considering purchasing one. While some may feel the air fryer’s size isn’t large enough to do serious cooking for a family, we found that its size is perfect if you’re cooking for yourself or for two! Whether you’re single, newlyweds, or empty nesters, cooking for two (or one) doesn’t mean you have to eat the same thing for days on end.
If you’ve never used an air fryer before, you’re in for a real treat. This countertop appliance is essentially a miniature convection oven, and it's incredibly efficient for cooking quickly and cooking small batches! While it’s famous for making healthier versions of fried foods, the air fryer can also bake and roast. In Cooking for Two with Your Air Fryer, we explore more of what’s possible in the air fryer. With chapters focused on cuisines like Italian, Asian, American Classics, Sandwiches, Meatless Mains, Mexican, and Seafood. There’s plenty of dinner inspiration waiting for you, and helpful tips throughout the book will make sure extra ingredients get used up, so there’s no food waste here! And if you’re wondering about dessert, we’ve got that covered too!
Drew Maresco and the food team at Best Recipes Media Group have compiled a wide variety of perfectly portioned recipes. Enjoy weeknight American Classics like Chicken Tender Salad, Roast Beef, and Country Fried Pork. Mouth-watering sandwiches like Bang Bang Shrimp Po’Boys, Beef Kebabs, and Pork Poblano Burgers. Go south of the border with recipes like Fajitas, Taquitos, and Chile Rellenos. You won’t need a wok for recipes like Chicken Teriyaki, Chili Pork Meatball Ramen, and Shrimp Lo Mein. Enjoy a fancy Italian dinner with Meatball Soup, Sausage with Tomato Cream Sauce, and Calzones. Don’t think you can’t make some impressive sides and appetizers, too. Onion Blossom Petals, Roasted Broccoli, and Baked Ricotta Dip come together with hardly any effort—and that’s not even everything! Oh, and we didn’t forget about dessert either!
Cooking for Two with Your Air Fryer is about to change the way you cook forever!
Dallyn Maresco is the editor and food stylist for website, magazine, and cookbooks by Best Recipes Media Group, LLC. For Dallyn, learning how to cook came at a young age. It began by making lunches on the weekends and finding new snacks to whip up after school. Her love of baking stemmed from time with grandma and the feeling of home and joy that came with it. Cooking and baking became some of the things she enjoyed best, an escape from reality, a time to learn new things, and experiment with flavors she hadn’t tried yet. Her belief is that food is what brings everyone together – whether for the holidays or just family dinners, a time to sit with the ones you love, enjoy good food, and to tell stories of life and love – which is why cooking means so much to her.
Her skill in writing is what initially brought her to the food team at Best Recipes, but it was her love of food and art that is quickly what made her an integral part of the operations and becoming our food stylist. She says writing and testing recipes is fun but her favorite part is actually the art behind it; styling the food and preparing the dishes for photography and publication is her favorite part of the process. She has a hand in every recipe before it’s seen by our community, and we are glad to have her here to make our food look as delicious as it tastes.
