Instant Vortex Plus/Omni Air Fryer Garlic Parmesan Broccoli

I came upon this recipe years ago when I was trying to get more veggies into my family's diet. I had never thought about roasting vegetables like broccoli until I had it once at a restaurant and was shocked at how great it was.

Air Fryer Cuban Rum Cake

In our house, we cannot have a family gathering or a holiday dinner without my husband's family Cuban Rum Cake front and center on the dessert table. It's so delicious that we have even made small ones and gave them out as presents. We think the original recipe was produced by Bacardi itself to promote… Continue reading Air Fryer Cuban Rum Cake
