When Recipe This Started

I remember the date like it was yesterday. 15th November 2015.

It was 10 days before Sofia’s 1st birthday, and we were launching our new food blog. That food blog was Recipe This and it has become a business that we look forward to getting out of bed to work on. We wanted a place that we could talk about our love for the air fryer and other kitchen gadgets and how much easier these recipes are compared to getting out your pots and pans at dinner time.

Whilst Recipe This has expanded to feature a lot of different kitchen gadgets it started out with just 4:

And then slowly more and more kitchen gadgets have been added as I have been asked by readers to feature more and more.

Though if I was to name my favourite 4 now after all these years it would most certainly be:

But what they all have in common is how much easier cooking with kitchen gadgets is, how economical it is compared to the oven and how many different budget friendly meals you can make.

About Recipe This

Well, as you may know, Recipe This is run by me Samantha and my chef hubby Dominic or Sam & Dom for short. We love cooking with kitchen gadgets and couldn’t imagine doing anything else and love what we do and how many amazing people we get the chance to chat to from all walks of life around the world.

Recipe This first started from our home in Southern Portugal where we lived for more than 13 years and we relocated back to the UK and back in Yorkshire in the summer of 2021.

We also run Recipe This with our kids. Kyle is our oldest and does a lot of the video editing for our You Tube channel and then we have our younger kids that love to help us in recipes and have great fun eating all the food. Though they are most impressed when we have a cake recipe to do!

You can of course read more about us here.

Sam’s Top 10 Kitchen Gadget Recipes

I often get asked by my readers, what my top kitchen gadget recipes are and which ones I turn to time and time again and that I would recommend to new readers.

Well, this is a really hard decision because I have more than 1000 recipes and to take it down to 10 is some doing.

But I did it and here are my top 10 kitchen gadget recipes for all time that I cook time and time again.

Air Fryer Frittata – If you are part of our weekly newsletter you will know I make this every Sunday for the week ahead and then reheat it in the microwave for quick breakfast for me and Dominic.

Air Fryer Baby Potatoes – OMG these are my hero. You can literally toss some prepped baby potatoes in some seasoning and oil and they become the best potatoes you have ever eaten.

Instant Pot Frozen Broccoli – I have lost count of the amount of times we have this for lunch when the kids are at school. We will pair it with some air fryer frozen salmon and it’s the best lunch ever and so quick too.

Instant Pot Brown Rice – I love cooking brown rice in the instant pot. It’s the easiest of all of them for the instant pot and then its perfect for a quick side dish for dinner.

Ninja Foodi Spag Bol – This is truly genius the way you can lay the spaghetti over the Bolognese meat and then pressure cook. It then just needs a stir, and you have the easiest spaghetti Bolognese ever.

Ninja Foodi Roast Potatoes – This is brilliant because the Ninja doubles up as both a pressure cooker and an air fryer. You can quickly partly cook the potatoes, then season and oil and the roasties are the best.

Slow Cooker Doner Kebabs – I love a doner kebab and it tastes much better when you make your own in the slow cooker. Then just grab some pita bread and you are ready to go!

Soup Maker Tomato Sauce – This is one of those recipes I made all the time before getting a soup maker and now its 90% quicker to make and freezes perfectly.

Pie Maker Quiche – I love to take my little pie maker with me on holiday as it doesn’t take up much room and makes delicious simple quiches. You can also use it for little pies from your leftovers too.

Thermomix Playdough – Not the classic recipes you are used to seeing on a food blog, but its so easy and great for some fun with the kids. We often divide it into different coloured balls and have loads of fun.

Dom’s Top 10 Kitchen Gadget Recipes

I also asked the lovely hubby what he would choose out of 1000 recipes on Recipe This and this was his go to list.

Air Fryer Whole Chicken – This has to be the reason to buy an air fryer. If you just do one thing then make it be this. The chicken is so juicy and the skin is so crispy yet the cook time is half that of an oven and no preheat.

Air Fryer Chicken Thighs & Potatoes – This tastes amazing. Delicious crispy skin on chicken thighs with potatoes and loads of honey and great flavours. We fight over who gets the last potato.

Air Fryer Ham – This is made using the rotisserie of the air fryer oven and made with some gammon and is delicious. Our favourite out of all the meats we have cooked on the rotisserie.

Instant Pot Caramel – This has to be the best ever hack of the instant pot. Load in cans of sweetened condensed milk and they turn into caramel in 40 mins. Much quicker than the 4 hours in the pan.

Instant Pot Rice Pudding – Tastes so good its hard to have just one bowl of it.

Instant Pot Sloppy Joes – These sloppy joes sandwiches are amazing and perfect for those lazy weeknights when you can’t be bothered to cook and need a comfort food fix.

Bread Machine Bread – This is truly amazing and comes out perfect every time. Pretty special for a dump and start recipe. You can also use the same ingredients into a dough and then use it for bread rolls.

Slow Cooker Mince & Dumplings – This old fashioned recipe is perfect for the slow cooker and its best when you make too much and you have loads of leftovers.

Soup Maker Cheese Sauce – Given the chance I am sure Dominic would have this everyday forever. It also freezes very well and is perfect for pouring over your pasta dishes.

Ice Cream Maker Vanilla Ice Cream – This is the go to recipe that we were given by Italians and is true Italian style ice cream and can be the base for many ice cream recipes using an ice cream maker.

I also asked the kids for their top picks, and they chose:
