Roasted Potatoes

I hope your New Year started amazingly beautiful and continues to be that way throughout the year. Usually, I do a recap of the most popular posts, but I changed it. Instead, I am sharing roasted potatoes. Is there any better way to start the year?

I love potatoes. You can prepare them in so many ways and I don’t think there is one dish that I will not like. You already know that if I could dive into the bowl of mashed potatoes I certainly would, I am seriously not joking at all.

I serve these, usually with some leftover protein; either pork chops, chicken, ribs or in this case Xmas leftover Turkey. Boy… was this delicious! It totally makes a complete meal, with a salad on the side, bit of sauteed peas and freshly baked bread… Could the meal get any better? I don’t think so…

If you love potatoes as much as I do then you got to make them asap. These are very flavorful, easy and delicious.

  3. Grease the baking pan and place potatoes in the single layer. Drizzle a bit of oil all over the potatoes.

Classic Beer Battered Fried Fish

Classic Beer Battered Fried Fish is easy, simple, and satisfies all the craving for fish and chips.

Classic Beer Battered Fried Fish


You could defiantly make thicker French fries or steak fries, which reminds me the most of the British chips. My kids are mad about these air-fryer potatoes. These potatoes look as they should, rusting and homemade. You cannot even compare homemade to store-bought french fries.


Anyways, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to make this fantastic classic dish, just a bit of patience, a few tools, great ingredients, and tasty fish.


My family loves and enjoyed fish recipes, so I was surprised to see leftovers, but I was so happy to have several pieces.


My youngest one and I had a fantastic brunch the next day. We make tasty sandwiches, which was extremely satisfying.

Classic Beer Battered Fried Fish

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

An easy and simple recipe for Fish & Chips.


  • 6-8 thick cod fillets
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 2 egg whites, whipped
  • 1.5 cups plain flour
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder (for the color)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 170ml dark beer (6oz)
  • Sea Salt to taste
  • Vegetable oil for deep fryer
  • Lemon wedges and tartar sauce


  1. Prep fish first. If the fillets are long and seem larger then slice into smaller fillets. Lay the fish fillets on a couple of kitchen towel sheets and pat dry very well. Season fish fillets with sea salt. Just a good pinch for each fillet.
  2. Add cornstarch to the plate and dip each filet on both sites into cornstarch, shake off any excess. Set aside.
  3. At this point turn the oil to heat. It should be at the oil temperature is still 350 degrees.
  4. Mix 2 egg whites with your electric mixer until you see peaks; set aside.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, a good pinch of salt, turmeric. Mix it well to combine dry ingredients.
  6. Add beer to the flour mixture and continue mixing until you have a thick, smooth batter.
  7. Fold egg whites into the batter. Beaten egg whites give this batter its leavening strength as well as its structural quality. It forms fluffy, tender pouches around the fish.
  8. Carefully, drop each fillet into the hot oil. Fry for approximately 10 minutes, or until the batter is crisp and golden, turning the fillets from time to time with a large slotted spoon.
  9. Once cooked, remove the fillets from the hot oil and drain on kitchen paper.
  10. Transfer fish to a large baking pan, then place it into 350 degrees preheated oven. This will finish the fish and keep the beer batter crispy. This is also how you will reheat your fish. 350F for 10 to 15 minutes.
  11. Once ready, sprinkle fish of sea salt and serve with lemon slices and tartar sauce.

For the Chips:

2 pounds of potatoes

1 quart/1 liter vegetable oil (or use air fryer)



  1. Cut the potatoes a bit thicker. they should look more like steak fries.
  2. Place the chips into a colander and rinse under cold running water.
  3. Pat dry potato slices and add to the air fryer basket.
  4. Cook at the pre-setting or like me at 375F for 17-20 minutes depending on potatoes, as well as air-fryer.

*You can fry them your skillet, in batches with 1/2 cup of oil, or deep fryer with 30+ oz of oil or like me, you could use your air-fryer. Note that it is not the same as deep frying but it does the job if you wish to avoid fried potatoes.


Your Questions:

Can I air fryer for the last step instead of my oven?

YES! You can certainly use your air fryer.

I don't use beer, what else I could use as a substitute?

You may use nonalcoholic beer or seltzer water.

Air Fryer Whole Chicken

Air Fryer Whole Chicken

Air Fryer Whole Chicken is so easy, and everyone in my house loves it. My favorite kitchen toy is an air fryer by far. As soon as we got it I was in love with it.

Air Fryer Whole Chicken

A year later we got another one. It is bigger with more settings such as baking, toasting and broiling together along with the initial air fryer function.

Now, this is not an air fryer review of any kind, but I really like this one in regards to how many functions it has.

However, I wouldn’t get this one again just because it is a bit too loud compared to my old one.

I’ve been wanting to make a whole chicken for a while now and since this air fryer is big enough, the chicken, that is around 4 pounds, fits easily.

So after marinating the chicken overnight in the fridge I finally had a chance to make it.


Air Fryer Whole Chicken

It took me around an hour and a half, turning two times around to get that crispy skin. It was worth it.

To be honest, I thought that it will be done much faster but at the same time, I didn’t want to risk cooking it at high temperatures.

It was low and slow, in a way, although for the first 30 minutes I air-fried it at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, then a for an hour it was cooked at 375 degrees.

This all depends on how big your chicken is. Make sure that the internal temperature is at least 165 degrees.

You must poke your meat thermometer at the thickest part of the chicken so it can read the most accurate temperature.

Yield: Makes 1 Chicken, Serves 4 to 6

Air Fryer Whole Chicken

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
Additional Time to Marinade: 12 hours
Total Time: 13 hours 35 minutes

Air Fryer Whole Chicken is so easy, and everyone loves it. My favorite kitchen toy is an air fryer by far. As soon as we got it I was in love with it.


  • 1 chicken, 3 lb to 5 lb (1.3kg to 2.2kg)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon pepper
  • 2-3 tablespoons butter


  1. Place the whole chicken in the large pot or a bowl (You can also use an extra-large ziplock bag to marinate). Remove the chicken giblets. Rinse the chicken inside and out. Remove any excess fat and leftover pin feathers and pat the outside dry.
  2. On the side mix olive oil, lemon juice, herbs, salt, and pepper then rub all over the chicken. under the skin, inside and all around. Close it or cover it and place it in the fridge for 10 to 12 hours, or overnight.
  3. You can roast this in the oven for 45 to 50 minutes at 375°F, but today we gonna use air-fryer.
  4. Take the chicken out of the marinade and add butter under the skin and rub if possible all around the chicken.
  5. Air fry for 30 minutes at 350°F with back down and breast up, then turn it around and cook for 30 minutes with the breast down so the back could get a nice golden color as well at 375°F.
  6. After that turn, it again allows it to air-fry for an additional 30 minutes also at 375°F. If your chicken is bigger like 5 pounds it might take up to 40 additional minutes.

The cooking time depends a) on your air fryer and b) on the size of the chicken. Always use a meat thermometer to detriment if the chicken is cooked through. The safe internal temperature for cooked chicken is 165° Fahrenheit (75° Celsius). When you're cooking a whole bird, it should be inserted into the thickest part of the thigh but not touching bone.
