deep frying

So I just received holiday gift from my mom: a mini deep fryer!

As frightening as this is to my health, I definitely intend to try tempura recipes, experiment with donuts, falafel, and the beer-battered tofu and onion rings here: http://www.livejournal.com/community/vegancooking/473020.html ~~which look awesome~~

Any other ideas?

Also, to imitate deep fried tofu at chinese and thai restaurants, I have come across a recipe using silken tofu (as seen here: http://recipes.offline.org.uk/index.php?action=getrecipe&id=15) Anyone have any experience frying tofu as so?
What type of oil should I generally use for deep frying?

Advice is very much appreciated. Thanks!
