Buttermilk Lemon Syrup Cake (Thermomix Method Included)

Buttermilk Lemon Syrup Cake (Thermomix Method Included)

I have been experimenting with traditional buttermilk lately because I make so much butter. Butter makes everything taste better and it is a great way to save money (especially when the cream is past its used by date and on special) and I am always doing some sort of...

Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Icing (Thermomix Method Included)

Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Icing (Thermomix Method Included)

  Carrot cake with cream cheese icing is a bit of a classic. I'm not sure what to say except I know the person who makes the best carrot cake every time. She shared her secret with me and now I am going to share it with you. Are you ready??? Always bake it in an...

Liz’s Rocky Road

Liz’s Rocky Road

Here is another recipe that polarises people. How do you like your Rocky Road? Here in Australia, Darrell Lee is a firm favourite, but I don't like nuts in my Rocky Road. I'm not particularly a fan of marshmallows either, unless they are char grilled over an open...

Jam Drops and living with 5 girls (Thermomix Method Included)

Jam Drops and living with 5 girls (Thermomix Method Included)

I can't believe it has taken me this long to post Jam Drops. These became one of my favourite biscuits when I lived with Jody, Lisa, Heather and Katherine in the Ballyshannon house in Sydney (yes 5 girls in a house)! I have eluded to Ballyshannon in a few post, but...

Kaz’s Passionfruit slice (Thermomix Method Included)

Kaz’s Passionfruit slice (Thermomix Method Included)

I know that this might not seem like a very Christmasy recipe, BUT passionfruit are in season at the moment and this is the only time I get to eat this slice. Kaz is a friend of mine from High School... Yes we have known each other that long and are still friends!...

Cheese Biscuits (Thermomix Method Included)

Cheese Biscuits (Thermomix Method Included)

Cheese Biscuits... what can I say about Cheese Biscuits??? DON'T MAKE THEM! Before you know it they are all gone... One batch makes about 80 small biscuits and you think it is a lot, but it's not! I make about 4 - 6 batches every Christmas and they just seem to...

Nola’s Chocolate Chip Short Bread (Thermomix Method Included)

Nola’s Chocolate Chip Short Bread (Thermomix Method Included)

Nola is a friend of my mum's, they have worked together for a very long time. I won't tell you how long because that would be rude and give you an indication of how old they are and a woman should never tell her age... (well that is what my pop use to say) Anyway, you...

Boiled Fruit Cake (Thermomix Method Included)

Boiled Fruit Cake (Thermomix Method Included)

I have a confession, I HATE PEEL and I HATE GLACE' CHERRIES. I know it is terrible... actually I don't mind peel, just not in a fruit cake and the ones you buy seem to have lots of peel and not lots of fruit! This is another very old recipe that came from nana's...

Rum Balls (Thermomix Method Included)

Rum Balls (Thermomix Method Included)

Another staple in the Lewis/Peachey/Connolly household. This is one of the very first memories I have of cooking with my nana... she would make a batch or two of these and then we would get to roll them. It was so much fun, they were off sizes and different shapes (my...

Lemon Meringue Cupcakes (Thermomix Method Included)

Lemon Meringue Cupcakes (Thermomix Method Included)

You thought this post was about Lemon Meringue Cupcakes... WRONG this is a post about me and how competitive I am... If it is something that matters, like work or deadlines or paying bills, or serious world stuff, I'm not competitive at all. I don't care what people...

Black Forest Cup Cakes (Thermomix Method Included)

Black Forest Cup Cakes (Thermomix Method Included)

  I have been making Black Forest Cake since I can remember... there is a pattern here, so many of these recipes I have been making for so long! I even made my own 18th and 21st birthday cakes and you guessed it, Black Forest Cake. I think every one likes this...

White Chocolate Caramel/Fudge (Thermomix Method Included)

White Chocolate Caramel/Fudge (Thermomix Method Included)

This fudge recipe is based on the Bundaberg easy fudge recipe... sometimes found on the back on the packet of brown sugar. Jono introduced it to me one day. You see when I was doing casual teaching at a school on the Northern beaches of Sydney, I would sit and have...

Ginger Kisses (Thermomix Method Included)

Ginger Kisses (Thermomix Method Included)

Ginger kisses are one of my favourite biscuits to buy... I use to put them in the freezer, so they were nice and hard and eat them as slowly as I could... they were just so tasty. The other day I was at my local IGA and there they were. I had not seen them in ages or...

No Bake Hedgehog Slice (Thermomix Method Included)

Banana Bread (Thermomix Method Included)

Banana Bread (Thermomix Method Included)

I have to start with a disclaimer... I don't eat bananas, I'm allergic to them, they make me throw up, I can't stand the smell of them, even looking at one makes me feel a little queasy. So why banana bread you say? Two words "MY DAD" Dad has featured a bit over the...

Melting Moments with Passionfruit Cream (Thermomix Method Included)

Melting Moments with Passionfruit Cream (Thermomix Method Included)

I LOVE melting moments!!!! I love the butteriness of them, how when you bite into them, they literally do melt in your mouth! Well, they are supposed to! I have found that every time I purchase one of these delicious morsels that they are hard and don’t really melt at...

White Chocolate and Caramel Brownies (Thermomix Method Included)

White Chocolate and Caramel Brownies (Thermomix Method Included)

Paleo Sweet Potato Muffins (Thermomix Method Included)

Paleo Sweet Potato Muffins (Thermomix Method Included)

September is sugar free month - not for me obviously, that would just be silly, but for a lot of people I know. They are doing refined sugar free for the whole month, so I wanted to be supportive and make something that they could eat. So I have made these Paleo Sweet...

Lamingtons (Thermomix Method Included)

Lamingtons (Thermomix Method Included)

My Dad has been asking me to make lamingtons for a couple of months and this morning he said, can't you just make some for me and put them on that bloggy thing you do? LOL. I was like really? Bless his heart... but lamingtons... I don't think so. Can't I just go and...

Raspberry and White Chocolate Muffins (Thermomix Method Included)

Raspberry and White Chocolate Muffins (Thermomix Method Included)

Muffins... well really I feel the same way about muffins as I do about cup cakes... I'm not a fan! I would rather have something a little bit different for my "calorific buck" so if I'm going to eat something that I shouldn't, I wouldn't necessarily pick a muffin. At...
