Popcorn chicken is a fun, snackable way to get your protein fix (30 grams per serving!). Originally developed in Taiwan in the 70s and then introduced in the US at Kentucky Fried Chicken in the 90s, popcorn chicken is small bites of crunchy chicken you can eat like popcorn. It’s traditionally deep fried and delicious but obviously, not the healthiest option on the menu. Making this from scratch is easy and another healthy way to enjoy air fryer chicken breast. More of my favorite air fryer fried chicken recipes are these air fryer chicken nuggets, air fryer chicken tenders, and air fryer chicken sandwiches.

There’s a farm on Long Island where you can go berry picking, and they make the BEST homemade blueberry ice cream. Since making my chocolate frozen yogurt in my Ninja Creami, I started playing around with other flavors and was dying to try it using fresh blueberries. It turned out even better than I imagined! I also tested it in a standard ice cream maker, and it worked well. Some other frozen desserts that I love are Frozen Banana Pop, Vanilla Bean Frozen Yogurt, and Frozen Fruit Pops.

We LOVE empanadas in my house (Who doesn’t?!). I grew up on them and always have leftover picadillo in my fridge or freezer because I make it at least twice a month (here are my skilletslow cooker, and instant pot versions). These healthy air fryer empanadas are one of my favorite ways to use up the leftovers. Made with frozen store-bought empanada dough, they only take minutes to cook. They’re also excellent to pack in your kids’ lunchboxes – Madison loves taking them for school lunch.

Sloppy Joes recipe is for the meat only, we love to serve it on potato rolls but I have also served it over baked potatoes, baked sweet potatoes and roasted spaghetti squash. I used lean ground sirloin and minced up some carrot, mushroom, bell pepper and onion for flavor and bulk. I mince them in the food processor so no one notices the veggies. For a slightly different on a Sloppy Joe you may also like this Sloppy Joe Baked Sweet Potato which is also gluten free or Crock Pot Italian Sloppy Joes.

My daughter loves those mini frozen bagel pizzas, so I wanted to make an easy Pepperoni Pizza Bite recipe from scratch. I figured making bagels and then topping them with pizza ingredients would take too long, so I streamlined them and made them in muffin tins instead. These mini pizza bites would be great for an afternoon snack or even a party appetizer. If your kids like these pizza bites, you should also try my Pizza Sausage Rolls and Stuffed Bagel Balls.
