Air Fryer Captain Crunch French Toast (Omni/Omni Plus/Vortex)

I have to admit....I hate French Toast. The idea of soggy bread freaks me out. I want to like it. My family likes it and I make it often just for them. That said, there are exactly 2 times in my life when I tried French Toast and loved it. The first was at the… Continue reading Air Fryer Captain Crunch French Toast (Omni/Omni Plus/Vortex)

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. The slight char on the broccoli and the crispy caramelized garlic… Continue reading Instant Vortex Plus/Omni Air Fryer Garlic Parmesan Broccoli

Vortex Plus Crispy Chicken Tenders

One thing the Vortex Plus isn't great at is battered foods, like chicken tenders. When using a wet batter, like with fried chicken, not having it suspended in oil like when frying, makes it difficult. Air fryers can also cause foods to become dry unlike with frying in oil. However, I found that if you… Continue reading Vortex Plus Crispy Chicken Tenders

Vortex Plus Goya Croquettas

One of my favorite quick lunches or late night snack is a crispy, crunchy Croquetta. Obviously making them from scratch is always going to be preferable (unless you have a Cuban abuela, and then the best thing is for her to make them for you), but the Goya brand Croquettas are pretty perfect. Honestly, after… Continue reading Vortex Plus Goya Croquettas
