We have seen Air Fryers all over the internet and have contemplated for weeks if we needed to jump on the air frying trend. We couldn’t decide how often we would really use it to make the investment, but after a couple of our friends got one and have all raved about it, we made the purchase just in time for the Fourth of July weekend!

And we have NOT STOPPED frying everything ALL WEEK!!!

We did an inaugural batch of buffalo cauliflower flowed up by some sweet potato fries on the 4th, and we’ve been trying some listener recommendations this week!

I’ve officially cleared off space where one of our coffee machines lived on the counter for a permanent home for our air fryer so I’m confident its here to stay!

This is the one I purchased:

and this is the smaller one Haley purchased:

Here are a couple of the recipes that we have loved this week!

I think Abbey’s going to give Air Fryer Smores a go this weekend!

Two years ago, Abbey begged the family to take a trip to Chicago to go see Hamilton, and ever since then we have been total Hamil-Fans!! If you’ve not ever listened to the soundtrack, it’s a MUST!

So now we’re throwing a Hamilton watch party for the movie release on Disney+!

We ordered some cute decorations from Amazon and the girls have been putting together a Hamilton inspired menu. The details to our Hamilton watch party are below!


We made a quick e-vite on Canva!

Prep Time: 10-15 minutes

Cook Time: Varies by oven but 20-30 minutes

Serves 6-8


1 packet of Fajita or Taco Seasoning

3 bell peppers sliced

1 onion thinly sliced

1 zucchini thinly sliced (optional)

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken tenders, sliced chicken breast or sliced steak

Juice of 1 lime, plus lime wedges, for serving

8 fajita-size flour tortillas, (preferably warm)

Serving suggestions: cheese, guacamole, hot sauce, salsa and sour cream.


Step 1

Preheat the broiler to high. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.

Put the peppers and onions on the prepared baking sheet, drizzle with 1 tablespoon of the oil and season with half of the seasoning packet mixture and a pinch of salt if desired.

Broil until softened and starting to char, about 10-15 minutes but varies by oven.

Step 2

Meanwhile, if you’re using chicken breast or steak, cut the meat into 1/4-inch-thick slices.

Step 3

After the peppers are softened and starting to char, place the meat on top of the peppers and onions, sprinkle the remaining seasoning onto the meat. and toss. Return the baking sheet to the broiler until the meat is cooked through. Total cook time is about 30 minutes depending on your oven.

Step 4

Sprinkle cilantro over veggies and meat and drizzle with generous squeezes of fresh lime juice.
