I have to be completely honest and admit that I have a bit of a thing about getting new kitchen gadgets and hardly ever using them. The space at the top of my kitchen cupboards is overtaken by sandwich toasters, mixers and blenders and there’s not really much room left for anything else. When we first got the air fryer I really didn’t think we would use it that much. I had been a very big lover of my deep fat fryer but I knew we had to make a change and this was it.
One of Erin’s favourite foods when she was about 1 was parsnips. If we would go out for a carvery or a roast dinner these would be her food of choice. Sadly, she’s been going through a fussy stage lately and won’t each much at all so I thought cooking up some air fryer parsnips might do the trick. The great thing about air fryer parsnips is that you can do them a few different ways. If you follow the recipe below you can either serve them with a roast dinner or you can have

One of the best bits about a roast dinner for me is the roast potatoes. I know some people tend to choose mashed potatoes instead but I’m quite happy cook both normally because I love them both.

We also have quite a small cooker and when you add in meat or sausages etc. and Yorkshire puddings, it doesn’t leave
Brussel spouts, whether you like them or not, are a traditional part of Christmas dinner. I, personally, am not a fan myself but my husband John LOVES them. The problem with Christmas dinner is that there is so much to do, only a certain number of hobs available on the cooker and not enough time to really do everything you want. I want to spend Christmas Day with my family, watching Erin opening her presents and having fun so I decided to experiment a bit and see what I could cook in my air fryer.
