Air Frying in a Halogen Oven

Here on my blog, I receive a reasonable number of hits on a regular basis, regarding a few specific search engine terms that include ‘halogen oven’.

One of these involves air-frying – or, more specifically; the optional air-frying attachment that can be purchased for most 12lt ovens.

With this in mind, I recorded a video several weeks ago and, on Monday evening, I go around to completing the editing process and uploading my brief introduction to the use of an air-frying attachment in my halogen oven.

I do hope this video is of use to others and, if that is the case, I will look to record further footage on the use of the halogen oven.

Thanks for reading and for watching.

Improved Chocolate Chip Cookies

It was sometime last week that I attempted a slight variation on the chocolate chip cookies I’d made previously, which were so soft you had too tear them apart as they would not snap like biscuits.

That’s not necessarily a bad thing but I still wanted to try and alternative approach that might give a more ‘expected’ result.

Cookies in the Halogen Oven

You’ll get to read about this in another post shortly but, this past Sunday, I successfully led my first walk of the year, with previous walk-leading experiences having come all the way back in July.

For this occasion, I decided that I would continue my tradition of baking something… I considered brownies, which I’d attempted on another walk last year. Shortbread seemed the easiest option – but again, it would be too familiar with July’s walk. Then, as I began to think of biscuits, I settled upon the idea of cookies.

Baking Brownies

Sometimes, a very good recipe can emerge from right under your nose…

I’ve spent a lot of hours in the past, searching for the ideal recipe to suit one of many occasions. You see, this recipe for baking brownies was found on the side of a bag of Lidl’s dark brown sugar!

A Priddy Wet Walk

Sunday 26th July 2015

In spite of the rain that continued to fall throughout most of yesterday, I managed to attend and lead my third walk of the year.

This means that, as far as the walk-leading rewards scheme goes, I’m guaranteed a £10 voucher, just in time for Christmas!

Carrot Cake Muffins

As I discovered a few months ago, I really like carrot cake. I forget the occasion as to why I made these (other than the fact that I was feeling greedy) but I was able to share them around with a few people and there was nothing bad to say.

You can find the recipe in Sarah Flower’s Halogen Oven book on baking.

When Biscuits Go Bad

As far as baking goes, I’ve always seen biscuits as perhaps the simplest of options available. Cakes can sink and sag but, being relatively flat, there isn’t a lot that can go wrong with a biscuit, is there?

This was my first attempt from a Flora recipe for Easy Cinnamon and Raisin Cookies.
