You can’t find more comfort food that the recipes in The “I Love My Air Fryer” 5-Ingredient Recipe Book. Many are variations on what my midwestern grandma taught me to cook when I was young.
While the calories may have slightly gone down, due to the air fryer, most of the recipes are not diet food by anyone’s definition. Plus, the use of convenience foods, like store-bought BBQ sauce, to lower the ingredient count means the sodium here is sky high. However, I commend the author and publisher for publishing nutritional information for each recipe.
There are only a few negatives to this cookbook. First, there are no allergen warnings or substitutions for common allergens. Second, there are few photos too (though that may be less of an issue since most foods will be familiar, at least to American readers). I don’t need to see a photo of BBQ ribs, meatloaf, or hot dogs.
I was gifted an air fryer over three years ago for Christmas. It is still sitting in its box, unopened. I think the quick and easy (not to mention inexpensive) recipes included here might just get me to crack it open. 4 stars for The “I Love My Air Fryer” 5-Ingredient Recipe Book.
Thanks to Adams Media and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
