Pulled Pork – Slow Cooker

Pulled Pork – Slow Cooker

Pulled Pork is a thing and it has been for a while now so I thought  I had better put together a recipe. I'm a late bloomer with some things, but apart from bacon, I'm not really into pork. However, pulled pork is everywhere and when I tried a BBQ pulled pork and...

Mexican Soup – A Taco in a Bowl ( Thermomix Recipe Included)

Mexican Soup – A Taco in a Bowl ( Thermomix Recipe Included)

A Mexican taco in a bowl you say! Nothing better than your favourite Mexican meal turned into a soup and for the Thermomix as well. This recipe came about because I was developing my soup recipe eBooks and realised that beef isn't really something we put in soup very...

Tuna Bake (Thermomix Method Included)

Tuna Bake (Thermomix Method Included)

Well I'm back and thought I would really go old school. I have lost count of how many times this meal has saved me from starvation (I could still live a long time on my fat stores) when I was a UNI, when I was on a budget, when I had no food in the house except pasta...

Curry Chicken (Thermomix Method Included)

Curry Chicken (Thermomix Method Included)

Lasagna (Thermomix Method Included)

Lasagna (Thermomix Method Included)

This recipe is part 3 of the 3 part recipes that I always make at the same time. Click HERE for the Eggplant Parmigiana Recipe Click HERE for Moussaka Recipe So this is just a basic lasagna. I find that if you make this, then cook it the next day it always tastes...

Moussaka (Thermomix Method Included)

Moussaka (Thermomix Method Included)

This recipe is part 2 of the 3 part recipe series that I make at the same time. This would probably have to be my favourite layer type dishes as it has the yummy eggplant, but also the meat sauce and white sauce, but it doesn't have all the pasta, so after I have...

Eggplant Parmigiana (Thermomix Method Included)

Eggplant Parmigiana (Thermomix Method Included)

Eggplant Parmigiana is one of my favourite vegetarian dishes. I once served it at a dinner party which included guys and they loved it and didn't even know they weren't eating meat (I just called it Parmigiana, leaving off the eggplant) I remember reading somewhere...

Chicken and Corn Soup (Thermomix Method Only)

Chicken and Corn Soup (Thermomix Method Only)

Slow Cooker Pea and Ham Soup (Thermomix Method Included)

Slow Cooker Pea and Ham Soup (Thermomix Method Included)

  I think I have been eating pea and ham soup since I was... well forever. The bone from the Christmas ham goes in the freezer and then come out when the weather get cooler and pea and ham soup is made... You still need to get a ham hock to add some flavour and...

Pumpkin, Sage and Feta Cannelloni (Thermomix Method Included)

Pumpkin, Sage and Feta Cannelloni (Thermomix Method Included)

I love Cannelloni, it is one of my favourite pastas, but I hate stuffing them... it is such a messy, painful job and I really can't be bothered to pipe it in, so this is my solution! Roll up Cannelloni. All you do is get fresh lasagna sheets (or make them yourself)...

Chicken Carbonara (Thermomix Method Included)

Chicken Carbonara (Thermomix Method Included)

In Italy, Carbonara is traditionally served without cream, just bacon, egg, pasta and parmesan. This is because even though lovely creamy sauces are delicious, Italians are all about highlighting the pasta. I was fortunate enough to visit Italy for 3 weeks (too long...

Chicken and Vegetable Lasagna (Thermomix Method Included)

Chicken and Vegetable Lasagna (Thermomix Method Included)

This recipe was born out of an accident. I was racing around one day and grabbed some mince out of the freezer to defrost for dinner, as some friends were coming over and I wanted to make a lasagna. When I got home... I had defrosted Chicken mince instead. So, I just...
