Air fryer recipes are so popular year round, but we love using the air fryer in Summer. If you need a break from grilling (or haave a rainy day!) it’s a fabulous way to whip up healthy eats, fast, without heating up the kitchen. Here’s a fun summer menu—made from top to bottom using the appliance of the moment!
If you’ve been following for a little bit, you’ve probably realized that I really like a good theme, especially when celebrating holidays. I came across these Peep Rice Krispies Treats on instagram and couldn’t wait to make them with my kids. They’re super easy and fun to decorate with some pastel sprinkles. I was a little too impatient when it came to letting them cool and harden which is why mine aren’t perfect looking, but it didn’t affect the taste at all. I hope you have as much fun making these as we did!
