(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.

Thermomix tips and tricks

I recently wrote about how special it is to share recipes. Sharing tips and tricks that help us all get the most out of our Thermomix is also a wonderful thing to do. I asked you all to tell me what your best Thermomix tip was via my FB page. Thanks to everyone […]

(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 […]

(paleo/raw) Trio of smoothies

The start of a new year seems to be the time that many of us make resolutions to change something in our life for the better. While I’m not one to do so because I feel like I am setting myself up to fail, it is a time that I reflect on […]

St Nicholas Speculaas

Christmas is a time for giving. A time for helping those less fortunate than ourselves, for showing our appreciation by passing on gifts of thanks. It is also a time that many of us use to spend with our families and loved ones because we realise how important they really […]

(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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Pizza pockets

Making dough using the Thermomix is one of the simplest and most enjoyable things to do. This is mainly because the effort is minimal in comparison to the delicious results.

You can let your imagination run wild to create any flavour, shape and texture that you like. In […]

Berry crumble slice

 

Several times I have mentioned that the inspiration to create a new recipe can come from many and varied places. Although this recipe was developed more out of necessity than inspiration.

Most places I’ve lived I have been fortunate enough to have two fridge/freezers or at the […]

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 […]

Saving money with thermomix

One of the reasons that many people don’t consider buying a Thermomix is due to the cost. And while many of us don’t have the $1939 to outlay upfront there are different payment options available for different circumstances. We explain these during our in-home demonstrations or on an individual basis. One of the […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]
