(paleo) Lemon curd

I have always said “when life gives you lemons……..make something you love to eat”. 🙂

There are many things that I love to make with lemons and one of my absolute favourites is lemon curd. My pre-healthy life saw me make this recipe which (at the time) I absolutely loved. For me it is […]

(paleo) Easy profiteroles

Developing recipes can often be a challenging experience, especially when you are trying to create things that are free of grains, gluten, dairy, refined sugar and on occasion eggs and nuts. With a list like that even I think – what else is there? However, there is so much we can do with a […]

(LCHF) Meringue stack

I have been trying to make any sort of Paleoish meringue/pavlova for a few weeks now. I think I have used at least three dozen egg whites (and made LOTS of mayonnaise with the yolks) and I finally think I’ve cracked it.

Although these aren’t as thick as […]

(paleo/LCHF) Spiced lamb burgers

Lamb has always been one of my favourite sources of protein. In fact it was the first meat I ate when I broke out of my 15 years of vegetarianism!

For as long as I can remember it ahs almost been traditional to have some form of lamb as part of Australia day celebrations. […]

(paleo/LCHF) Cauliflower buns/rolls

I’ve never been a big bread eater. I remember as a child the only thing I really liked was plain white bread with vegemite and grated cheese and even that was only when I was quite young. As I grew older and my palate developed it wasn’t something I gravitated […]

(paleo) Pavlova wreath

PHOTO TO COME

I have wanted to make a paleo “pavlova” wreath since I started this way of life many years ago. I think I can adapt many things to “become paleo” however I may have met my match……for now. Not that this recipe is a failure, it just isn’t as […]

(paleo) Carrot cake and cashew cream frosting

One of the things I love to do most in life is to bake. When I was (much) younger I used to sit on the bench and help my Mum cream together butter and sugar for the beginning of a cake – by hand of course – mixing it in […]

(paleo) Breakfast bar

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 […]

(paleo) Pancakes

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.

I […]

(too easy) Carrot cake

Sharing recipes of any kind is a very special thing. Some of them involve family traditions and secret ingredients; many are not even written down and only learnt through teaching the next generation. This is something that I have always loved about cooking and one of the things that drives […]

(paleo) Healthy chocolate cake

I know the title of this recipe is almost an oxymoron, but it’s true. I designed this recipe because G & I have been (attempting) a Paleo diet of late. The concept is really interesting and (I think) we are starting to see some results. I’ll elaborate a little more […]

3 ingredients cupcakes

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 […]

Red velvet cake (colour free)

Inspiration to create a new recipe can come from many and varied places. Tasting something that someone else has made, pictures of food, someone else’s recipe or even a Birthday card.

I had a Birthday recently and was fortunate enough to receive many warm wishes in the form […]

Beetroot chocolate ice-cream

If someone had of told me a few years ago that I would be a Thermomix consultant I would have laughed until I fell off my chair. At the time, I was never going to own a kitchen appliance that cost $2000 “because there was no way any appliance could […]

Passionfruit curd

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 […]

Leek and bacon tart

I remember my first few weeks of owning a Thermomix. Like many people, I was unsure about how it really worked or what I had to do. My feelings were a mixture of fear and excitement all rolled into one. I was so pleased to have this amazing machine on […]

Fig and brown butter tart

I love showing people the amazing features of the Thermomix. Watching their faces light up when we create icing sugar from raw sugar in just 9 second and 2 litres of fresh fruit sorbet in 2 minutes with no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. The smallest, smartest kitchen machine as […]

Potato salad with seeded mustard mayonnaise

I was flicking through my recipes recently and noticed that everything I have posted in the past few months has been something sweet, a slice, cake or dessert. And as much as I LOVE all of these things I thought it was time for something a little different.

Blueberry, lemon, yoghurt cake

In a recent post I mentioned my effort to cook with ingredients that were in season.

I think a big part of what drives me to do so is shopping for fresh fruit and vegetables at local markets. When the new season produce is on the shelf I […]

Banana bread

I never thought I’d own a Thermomix, let alone actually be doing in-home demonstrations and loving being an Independent Consultant for the product.

Why? You might ask. Sometimes I tell my story about how I started in this business during my demos. Briefly, I owned every kitchen appliance known to […]
