(healthy) Ice cream

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 future […]

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 […]

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 look”.  Halfway […]

Trio of healthy dips with homemade crackers

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 […]

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.

One of the […]

Chocolate cake (raw/vegan/paleo)

Recently I’ve been varying our diet a little (much to G’s dismay) by trying to get a few more veggies and leafy greens into each meal.  That includes breakfast and dessert.  And although my banana, chocolate breakfast shake, including a huge handful of spinach (I know it sounds bad), seemed ridiculous […]

Green power soup

With the season starting to move towards winter G and I have both suffered with a slight sore throat and minor head cold.  So I’ve been thinking about how I can give our immune system a little boost.

Recently I’ve been reading about the health benefits of Kale.  It appears that […]

“Green eggs & ham” risotto

When some of my friends first  found out that I had purchased a Thermomix, they couldn’t quite believe it.  They felt that I was such a “cook” that I would love the process of cooking and not want to “cheat”.  I must say, I don’t feel that using the Thermomix is cheating.  Many […]

Sweet potato and coconut steamed pudding

I’m constantly amazed at how my Thermomix makes the most difficult cooking creations so easy.  A few weeks ago I decided to adapt a recipe for a steamed sweet potato  puddings.  They were delicious and so much easier with the Thermomix.

One of the other things that little miracle machine has done […]

Baklava spread

I may have mentioned before that making desserts is one of my favourite things to do in the kitchen and looking at my last few Newsletters I seem to do a lot of it :).  Clients often ask me if I actually eat the food I create because they think I […]
