Air Fryer TikTok Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

You don't have to heat up the oven for a quick and easy breakfast. Try making these Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls in the air fryer.  You will not be disappointed. Air Fryer Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls I use my air fryer nearly every day in the summer months.  I am finding there is not much that I can't cook, bake, or grill in my air fryer.  I have been seeing the TikTok sensation for canned cinnamon rolls on every social media platform lately.  So I wanted to give them a try in my air fryer using sweetened pumpkin puree.  The viral TikTok cinnamon roll hack uses heavy cream, brown sugar, and cinnamon.   In this recipe, I combined the viral cinnamon roll hack ingredients with sweetened pumpkin puree to the heavy cream and adding pumpkin pie spice to the brown sugar. They are truly delicious, with pumpkin pie filling and cozy pumpkin pie spice in every bite, then topped with a brown butter icing; oh my gracious, did I say delicious?

Southern Sweet Iced Tea Made in A French Press

Southern Iced Sweet Tea Made in a French Press a quick and easy way to make tea using tea bags or loose tea since it strains automatically after steeping.  A French press is not just for coffee; it is so adaptable even for Southern sweet tea. I love sweet tea, and the stronger, the better.  When I think of a French press, I think of making strong coffee, but one day I thought, why not tea. I have used my French press to make my tea for the last couple of years.  I pour the boiling water over the tea bags, let them steep for 4 or 5 minutes, and pour in my tea pitcher with a cup of sugar.   This summer, though, I have been adding the sugar to the French press, pouring the hot water over it, giving it a couple of stirs, adding the tea bags, and then pushing the plunger down just below the water to steep, oh my so good.

Milk Butter Bath Mexican Street Corn

Milk Butter Bath Mexican Street Corn is a brilliant way to prepare corn on the cob.  If the name itself doesn't convince you, the clever method of crafting the recipe will.  Milk, Butter, Mexican flavors, Sweet Corn, who can resist? There are plenty of ways to cook corn on the cob, but not one of them will hold a memory the way these Milk Butter Bath Mexican Street Corn will. The popular Mexican street corn has become a favorite around my house, especially with the grandchildren.  I was introduced to it by four of my grandsons who worked for a vendor at our county fair the last several years.    My late husband loved corn on the cob simmered in a milk and butter bath.  Boiling your corn in milk brings out the sweetness of the corn. Around the first of July, most of the corn is ready to pick here in Texas.   When I was a young girl, my mother, sisters, and I would go to a nearby corn field and pick somewhere around 250 ears of corn.  We would haul it to our house, sit under a shade

Crisp Blistered Okra Recipe

Crisp Blistered Okra Recipe is a simple and fast okra dish that is crunchy, flavorful, and not at all slimy.  Some like it better than fried. There is nothing like fresh okra in the summertime.  I love okra any way you can cook it, but blistered okra could become my favorite way to eat it. This okra is super easy to make and takes very little prep work.  What keeps the okra crisp and does not release its juices which can be gummy, is to not add any water (liquid) when cooking the okra.   Another tip is to heat the avocado oil, firing hot but not burning, and then add the okra.  This renders the crisp outside to the okra and a tender inside.  This is also how I cook mushrooms, which makes a great compliment to the okra.   Once the okra is cooked, stop stirring it.  Continuing to stir the okra will change the texture of the okra, which is why it is best to cook the okra just before serving. The seasoning is straightforward, salt and pepper with a pinch of red pepper flakes.  Montreal ste
