Air Fryer Fish

What to cook when you don’t feel like cooking. It happens to us all. Maybe it’s the mess that holds you back. Or the time that you don’t have. Sometimes there is nothing that sounds good, but you still need to eat. It could go on for a night or two, or in my case, […]

Roasted Squash Rings with Pear, Dried Cherries and Feta
