We are launching a new series featuring the Etta+Billie team’s favorite cooking gadgets. This week, we hear from Jasmine, our Marketing Assistant, as she showcases her preferred kitchen tool, the air fryer!
As a college student, the last thing I want to do is create more work for myself by cleaning copious amounts of dishes. Also, my time can be super limited for meals in between classes, so I’ve got to get creative with how quickly I can whip up something tasty. Enter the air fryer.
An air fryer is essentially a conventional oven in a bucket. It rapidly circulates hot air around the cooking chamber to create a fried effect on food, hence giving it the name air fryer. The beauty of the gadget is not only in its ability to transform food into fried perfection with little to no oil, but also its quick cooking times and easy clean up. Say goodbye to dealing with large pans of greasy oil after making your favorite fried foods!
The things you can make in this gadget are just about endless. Take a look at some of my favorite items to whip up with this handy appliance:
Air Fryer sweet potato fries: Crispy, delicious fries with half of the cooking time
Buffalo Cauliflower “wings”: Tastes just like buffalo wings, except it’s actually cauliflower!

I’m not sure about you, but I’ve never understood the statement “time is a social construct” more than I have in quarantine. Days seem to fly by while also taking forever all at the same time, and the pass of each month never ceases to take me by a great surprise. Keeping a routine and rhythm is the one thing that can gives me some sense of “normalcy” and control in my day.
November is quickly approaching, which means the upcoming election is closer than ever before. Even with shelter in place orders, there are still many ways to become involved in this year’s election and do your part.
It’s fire season, and there’s no doubt that this is one of our craziest years yet. More acreage has burned than ever before, and it seems as if our entire state is being affected in one way or another. We may seem powerless when it comes to protecting ourselves, loved ones, and essential workers from the detriment of the fires, but there are indeed ways to become involved in the fight.
