Raw treats

In my humble opinion, society today feels like a world of convenience.  I know this is rather a serious statement for the start my post with but I really feel this dictates many of our daily choices.  We all want things faster, easier and with less effort on our own behalf.  I’m very [...]

Easter time is one of those joyous occasions when many of us catch up with family and friends.  Good food, company and a beverage or two.

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.

I am extremely blessed [...]

As those who own a Thermomix know, there are many advantages in doing so.  One of the things that I never actually considered when I was purchasing the machine was just how much money I could save on the very basic things that many of us buy pre-packaged.  Items such as stock, [...]

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 [...]
