Air Fryer Wings + Bacon Brussel Sprouts

We love using the air fryer for "frying" up some of our favorite dishes. From chicken parmesan to veggie fries and most recently bagels and empanadas, the options are endless. So we decided to try out wings this time around. It was the perfect meal for some Sunday football enjoyment. We also roasted up some crispy brussel sprouts with bacon and a cranberry balsamic drizzle for a complete meal. Here's everything you'll need for this dish: 

Ingredients (for wings)
1 lb of chicken wings or drumsticks 
1 c of nonfat greek yogurt 
3 tbsp of paprika 
1 tbsp of oregano 
1 tsp salt 
1 tsp pepper 
Juice of 1/2 a lemon 
1 c of Kentucky Kernel seasoned flour 
1 c of hot wing sauce (Frank's or your favorite hot sauce)

Mix together yogurt and lemon juice with all seasonings and spoon into a ziplock bag. Add chicken and let marinate for at least 4 hours. In a flat plate evenly spread out your seasoned flour and dredge your wings in both sides. Make sure to preheat your air fryer to 400 for 24-25 minutes. Spray the inside of your airy fryer before adding the wings as well as the top of your chicken. Half way through cook time make sure to flip wings over. Once they are done, place in a bowl and toss with your favorite marinade or hot sauce. Serve with your favorite dressing and crudités. 

The perfect side to cool down our tastebuds were these crispy brussel sprouts. We topped our with crumbled bacon and drizzled the top with sweet cranberry balsamic. This side is perfect with anytime of dish or can serve as a meal in itself. Here's everything you will need: 

1 lb of brussel sprouts 
4 slices of Trader Joe's classic dry rubbed, all natural uncured bacon
1 tsp of salt 
1 tsp of pepper 
1 tbsp of garlic powder 
2 tbsp of cranberry balsamic (or any flavored balsamic you'd like to use) 

Cook your bacon in a pan on the stovetop. Once cooked, remove and let excess grease drain on a plate topped with paper towel. Using the bacon fat in the pan, add your brussel sprouts, salt, pepper and garlic powder and sauté for about 10 minutes until your brussel sprouts soften. Preheat your oven to 400 on roast and add your brussel sprouts to a non greased baking sheet. Roast for 20 minutes until they start to develop a crispy brown skin. Two minutes before they are done, drizzle with your balsamic and toss. Roast for an additional 2 minutes. Place on a serving dish and top with your crumbled bacon. 

We can't wait to try out more recipes in the airy fryer. We'd love to hear what you guys have cooked up in your's. Make sure to comment below and share your ideas!

Almond Poppy Seed + Lemon Loaf

Happy Spring? Yes,  the question mark is needed since we had snow on Long Island today and its April second! I'd say about six inches total, but we were happy to see the sun appear and melt some of it away. We started on some yard work this week and were getting the itch to start doing some planting, but luckily we held out for now. Snow days are always the best days to test out a new recipe and typically we like to try our hands at baking on these chilly days. We just received some of Kodiak Cake's new Almond Poppy Seed Power Cakes Flapjack + Waffle mix. We decided to use this delicious mix for some baking and the results turned out absolutely delicious. Here's everything you will need: 

Ingredients 3 cups of Kodiak Mix  1/2 cup of nonfat Greek yogurt 1 tsp vanilla extract  1 tsp of baking powder  3 eggs, beaten  4 tbsp of unsalted butter, softened  1/3 cup of brown sugar  3/4 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk  3 tbsp of lemon zest  1/8 cup of lemon juice

Slow Cooker Honey Parmesan Pork Roast

We made it to hump day! As I currently sip my coffee this morning, I have a batch of banana coconut chocolate chip energy bites (recipe to come) for a little after dinner or post gym snack baking in the oven. We had a pork loin in the fridge big enough to feed a small country so we decided to cut it and make three separate meals for the week. I typically roast my pork in the oven Cuban style and add some roasted potatoes, but I figured I could set it and forget it with this easy and DELICIOUS recipe below. I'm not embarrassed to admit that John and I pretty much polished off almost the entire pork loin. Here is everything you'll need to make slow cooker honey Parmesan pork roast: 

Ingredients 3 to 4 lbs of pork loin roast 2 tbsp dried oregano 2 tbsp dried basil 1/2 tsp black pepper 3/4 tsp salt 2 tbsp garlic, minced 1/2 c honey 2 tbsp olive oil 1/4 c soy sauce 2/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Directions Place pork loin in slow cooker. In a medium bowl, combine the dried oregano, dried basil…
