Pork and eggplant curry

Hellllllloooooo!!!!!  It is so long since I have posted on my website, looked at a new recipe or even spoken to you all that I feel like I almost need to reintroduce myself.

For those who are new to my blog, my sincere welcome, I hope you find it interesting.  For those who are [...]

Paleo Breakfast Bars

In January 2010, I said “Hello” to the blogging   community and started my Food 4 Thought website.  My goal was to put my passion for cooking into pages to share with others and hopefully along the way, inspire people to cook.

How things have changed!   I still love to cook [...]

(paleo) Lemon cheesecake

Food journeys, diets, eating plans, lifestyle choices.  These all evolve, grow and change, at times somewhat dramatically throughout our lives.

Food has been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember. My “journey” began as a youngster in the kitchen with my Mum.  I remember helping to make sausage rolls for [...]

Paleo Ginger Cookies

These days I hear more and more about people with food allergies or sensitivities and I’ve discovered that I’m one of those people.

Learning more about how my body reacts to certain foods has prompted me to ask questions like what am I doing that is contributing to this and how can I change [...]

Mother’s Day is the one day of the year where most of us stop, even if only briefly, to recognise the AMAZING job that Mothers do in this world.  I’m sure the word “job” should actually be in flashing lights because it is a 24/7, all consuming lifetime commitment.

It never ceases to amaze me how popular the Thermomix has become.  It seems to be the “BBQ conversation” for both men and women.  Many more husbands are buying the Thermomix as a Christmas gift and lots more Mums want them before Christmas to help with the festive food.  Mmmmm Christmas cocktails   In [...]

Chocolate hazelnut spread (aka nutella)

The last few weeks have been a little nutty (pun intended!), in more ways than one.  I am very grateful to say that the world of Thermomix has been crazy busy thanks to many of you wanting this amazing tool in your own kitchen.  Unfortunately that has meant less time for recipe [...]

Thermomix.  Two years ago I would never have believed how big an impact this one kitchen appliance could have on my life.

After vowing that I would never buy one because “no kitchen appliance could be worth that money” I went to a friend’s demonstration with an open mind to “have a look”.  Halfway [...]

Trio of dips

I’m sure, like many other people, I find the beginning of a new year a time for reflection over the year(s) past.  I like to recap on lessons learnt, think about how I want the next year to be and sometimes even have a loose plan of action.

I used [...]
