Favorite Purchase

I’m in love with my Ninja Foodi Digital Air Fryer! I bought it in November, and have probably used it every day since. It does everything and does it faster than either traditional frying or toasting or broiling or baking or whatever I’m doing with it. I’m constantly discovering new recipes to try and different ways to use them.


Christine has her B.A. in American Studies with a minor in Film and Media from George Mason University and her M.A. in Media Studies from The New School. She has also taken courses at NYU in magazine editing and has been certified by the School of American Thanatology as a Death Companioning Initiate.
