Airfryer sweet potato fries – tasty and low calorie!

I’m a real fan of cooking food from scratch. Firstly, it is usually cheaper. Secondly, it is usually healthier too. These are a winning combination for me and often what motivates me to get off my backside and make something tasty for dinner. While getting a takeaway is a nice treat I don’t always want to feed my family unhealthy food and this is where my airfryer sweet potato fries come in. They are a nice compromise between fried chips and being healthier. My airfryer sweet potato fries take just a few minutes to prepare and they are pretty tasty too.

Tear and share bread – Panasonic SD2501

Bread is life. In our house at least. Any meal where I serve bread alongside it is always going to go down well with my husband. That effect is ramped up more when it is tear and share bread. Who doesn’t enjoy food that you can tear apart with your hands?! I’ve had a *Panasonic SD2501 breadmaker for a few years now. It is super versatile and makes much more than just bread. Cakes and jam for example. I love that I can be lazy and use it to mix up a dough while I take care of housework or online work. This tear & share bread is one such item that I make regularly. It keeps for a few days after it has been baked, at least, and freezes really well also. Scroll down near the end to see a printable recipe card for my tear and share bread.
