How do I meal plan?

  What is meal planning? What is meal planning you ask let alone how on earth do I actually do it? Meal planning is planning your meals, commonly dinner, for a set period of time whether it be a week, fortnight or month. It allows you to be prepared to avoid the "Whats for dinner tonight?" scenario. You know the one - you are sitting at your desk at work or perhaps with the kiddies watching Peppa Pig for the [...]

My Ultimate Thermomix Lunchbox Guide

By | 2017-06-12T11:20:44+00:00 May 19th, 2015|Categories: Featured, Lunchbox|0 Comments

  Note: This Guide replaces my Ultimate Lunchbox Resource that was previously on the blog.   Lunchboxes are something I get quite excited about. I don’t know why but it is something I get a kick out of. Crazy I know. I can appreciate that lunchbox ideas are often hard. We end up repeating the same thing day in and day out, not that children mind all that much I’ve found. It’s always good to add some variety though. I’ve [...]

From fridge to freezer: 200 freezer friendly recipes!

By | 2017-06-12T11:20:49+00:00 May 11th, 2015|Categories: Featured, Hints|0 Comments

Some of my freezing tips for cooked foods: Cool foods before you freeze them. Placing hot food straight into a freezer only brings the core temperature of the freezer down and also encourages ice build up on the food as its cools and freezes. Wrap and store the food item well before [...]

Lunchboxes are something I get quite excited about. I don’t know why but it is something I get a kick out of. Crazy I know. Maybe I’ll change my mind when I have two kiddies in full time school in February 2015.   I can appreciate that lunchbox ideas are often hard. We end up repeating the same thing day in and day out, not that children mind all that much I’ve found. It’s always good to add some variety [...]

Soft bread in the Thermomix is possible!

By | 2017-06-12T11:23:46+00:00 January 4th, 2014|Categories: Bread, Featured, Hints|41 Comments

  Bread was the most frustrating thing to make in the Thermomix. It would always be dense, doughy and too heavy.

After a lot of experimenting I have found a few tricks to ensure the end result is soft and fluffy. These tips can also come in handy if experimenting with other types or doughs where the final products [...]
