October is Tailgating Snack Month 2019
Welcome to October is Tailgating Snack Month! This is the 6th annual! Wow, I can’t believe I’ve been doing Tailgating Snacks Month for 6 years now!
We start the month off with a bang, and a review of The Easy Air Fryer Cookbook by Kathy Moore and Roxanne Wyss, plus a giveaway for the cookbook and a recipe from the book for Air Fryer Vegetable Egg Rolls.
The Easy Air Fryer Cookbook: Healthy, Everyday Recipes for People with Diabetes, a review
I’m really impressed by the number of recipes I want to try from this small but mighty book. And the American Diabetes Association publishes this book, so you know the recipes are all healthy and yummy!
The book is packed with 80 delicious recipes for the Air Fryer, and it helps readers make “fried” favorites healthier.
The book will be available wherever books are sold at the end of October – just in time for holiday gift giving! You can pre-order yours on Amazon before it’s available and lock in the great price.
This mouthwatering collection of recipes provides dozens of delicious fried food favorites made diabetes-friendly with the air fryer.
From weeknight meals for the whole family to snacks on the go and even desserts, there’s something in here for everybody. Best of all, each recipe follows the ADA’s dietary and nutritional guidelines. And a diabetes-friendly diet isn’t a special diet; it’s a smarter diet!
Best of all, every recipe has been customized to meet the nutritional guidelines established by the American Diabetes Association making them all diabetes-friendly!
I look forward to trying all kinds of recipes. Some of the ones that caught my eye were Crispy Cauliflower Street Tacos, “Fried” Onion Rings, Tuna Melts, and Buffalo Cauliflower Bites.
There are great family friendly recipes like Diner-Style Pork Chops, Pecan Baked Apples, and Crisp Parmesan Broccoli Florets.

The Air Fryer
By now I think you guys know I love my Air Fryer! I use it all the time. It’s like a really fast mini oven for me.
Want to see more of my Air Fryer recipes? Take a look below for a listing of them.
The Easy Air Fryer Cookbook celebrates one of the coolest kitchen inventions in recent memory: the air fryer!
The air fryer has revolutionized home-cooked fried foods.
By using up to 75% less fat than traditional frying methods, they’ve made foods once strictly off-limits to use accessible and enjoyable for the whole family. And with this cookbook arriving on bookshelves just in time for the holidays, it’s going to be a very happy, healthy, and mouthwateringly good season for all!
These easy to make egg rolls are super tasty and very impressive.
They’re crunchy on the outside and filled with tender cooked veggies in a light Asian flavor sauce.
These Spicy Vegetable Egg Rolls would be really easy to change up too.
Want a little more protein? Toss in some chopped tofu. Or try some shredded chicken.
If you don’t follow a diabetes diet you could add in some toasted sesame oil or sesame seeds. Add a bit of sweet and sour sauce to the mix for a little kick.
I want to try added some cooked glass noodles to them as well.
Don’t like spicy? Feel free to cut the red pepper flakes in half, or leave them out entirely.
The filling made 6 egg rolls for me, but I figure that’s just more yumminess! And I cooked my egg rolls in two batches so they didn’t sit too closely together and the air could still circulate.
How to roll an egg roll
The egg roll wrappers will dry out if left uncovered, so be sure to cover them with a damp clean cloth as you work with them.
And a really nice thing about making these egg rolls in the air fryer, is if you do happen to rip the wrapper, the filling won’t all spill out when the egg roll cooks. Since it’s sitting in the air fryer, the filling is still contained.
