I just finalized this simple recipe for" fried plantains" using an air fryer. Total time less than 15 minutes start to finish. Enjoy and share.
Air fryer plantains.
2 ripe plantains
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup avocado oil
If not ripe place in brown paper or paper bag until ripe.
Peel and slice ripe plantains at an angle 1/4 inch thick.
Mix equal amounts coconut oil and avocado oil ( 1/4 cup each) in a bowl.
Add plantain slices to the bowl of oils and cover on both sides.
Add slices in single layer in air fryer. Cook at 370 degrees for 7 min.
Flip ( optional) and cook another 3 min. Enjoy.
Refrigerate and reheat next day if needed.
Here is super easy peach cobbler recipe. With peaches in season it is a perfect time to make this simple dish. I tried a variety of vegan “butter” products for peach cobbler. I recently found the Plant Butter (olive oil) by Country Crock for baking. I found them easily in my local Food Lion and Harris Teeter stores.
I want to offer a special thank you to all my taste testers: Aunt Ann, my church family and my work mates for your honest feedback and for scraping every last morsel from my dish to make cleaning easier.
4 cups sliced peaches FRESH or FROZEN
¾ cups sugar or peaches (cane, organic, or coconut sugar work well)
2 cups Coconut Milk- canned full fat * See notes below
2 cups unbleached flour (King Arthur’s or Bob’s Red Mill)
¾ cups sugar for crust
~1/4 TSP EXTRA FINE GROUND Himalayan pink salt
3 TSP Aluminum-free Baking powder
1 and ½ sticks Country Crock Plant Based sticks- Olive Oil
10x13 inch glass dish
*I use Sprouts canned unsweetened coconut milk. Pour “milk” in dish then add water to can and mix. This gives the perfect consistency for baking

September is national pain awareness month. In this month I found a "miracle" like product that helped my SEVERE ankle and knee tendonitis and plantar fasciitis. Life-Flo Magnesium lotion is a Godsend. It has a light vanilla (essential oil) scent and simple natural ingredients. I have multiple chemical sensitivity and have no negative reactions from its use; only blessed pain relief. It has changed my life and now I am walking without pain and without the need for NSAIDS or other pain relievers. It is made with magnesium chloride which has better skin absorption than magnesium sulfate (aka Epsom salts). I found the best price on amazon.com. You may also try your local natural/health foods market.
You will not regret this purchase. If you know anyone with chronic joint pain, tendonitis or painful legs at night, this makes a great gift of love anytime. I believe God led me to try this product and now I am sharing this information with everyone I meet. Those of you you who know me personally know I am willing to try things if the science is good, and it is for this product.

I have recently stumbled upon some great deals on meatless, vegan and tasty real foods. Enjoy and share.
1. Delicious Dairy-Free, soy-free vegan ice cream is here with Halo Top .Flavors of the vegan and non-dairy ice cream include Peanut Butter Cup, Chocolate, Oatmeal Cookie, Sea Salt Caramel, Caramel Macchiato, Cinnamon Roll, Birthday Cake and Chocolate Covered Banana. The dairy free is soooooooo amazing tasting, the ingredients are easily recognized, high protein and low calorie (bit of sugar and stevia) and contain no artificial colors. Don’t worry if you are a taster for stevia and hate it as I do. I cannot detect the taste in the dairy-free vegan flavors I have tried. My favorite thus far is the Sea Salted Caramel and Cinnamon Roll. I am working my way through the delicious flavors.
