Thai Green Curry (Thermomix Method Included)

Thai Green Curry (Thermomix Method Included)

This is my "Curry in a Hurry" as it only takes 15 minutes (if you're using Prawns). I usually have rice or coconut rice in a portion in the freezer, so this is a quick easy meal to whip up when I want something tasty, healthy and quick. If you need to make rice put it...

Spring Rolls (Thermomix Method Included)

Spring Rolls (Thermomix Method Included)

I have made spring rolls on and off for a few years. I always just thrown some mince and left over veggies in a pan, what till it cools and then make them up, pop them into the freezer for another day when I really need them. So when someone emailed me and asked me to...

Parmesan and Pistachio Crusted Lamb

Parmesan and Pistachio Crusted Lamb

  I know that lamb cutlets really aren't a budget item, I actually saw them for $44kg the other day, but if you can managed to get them cheap like I did, then they are a great meal, and this is a lovely way to enjoy them. You may or may not have read my Christmas...

Buttermilk Roasted Chicken with Buttermilk Gravy

Buttermilk Roasted Chicken with Buttermilk Gravy

  This is a delicious way to roast chicken pieces. I love the way it is so full of flavour. If you own a Thermomix it is also a great way to use that buttermilk that is left when you make your butter, or you can buy it in a carton from the supermarket. ATTENTION...

Jody’s Family Chow Mein (Thermomix Method Included)

Jody’s Family Chow Mein (Thermomix Method Included)

  The reason this is called Jody's family Chow Mein is because Jody made this for me when we lived together (she has since married and I'm sure she makes it all the time for her hubby) It really is just savoury mince with curry in it... you know its is like...

Chicken and Mango Thai Curry (Thermomix Method Included)

Chicken and Mango Thai Curry (Thermomix Method Included)

I am always looking for great recipes to convert into Thermomix versions, as sometimes, I just want some more inspiration from other bloggers and other recipes. I came across this wonderful recipe on one of my favourite blogs,  Not Quiet Nigella (NQN for short) so if...

Shepherd’s Pie (Thermomix Method Included)

Shepherd’s Pie (Thermomix Method Included)

This is a Shepherd's Pie recipe, made from lamb... if you make it with beef it is called a Cottage Pie. Most people are unaware of this fact and make Cottage Pie and call is Shepherd's Pie (little bit of a pet hate, can't you tell?) I have to say that every time I...

Lamb’s Fry and Bacon

Lamb’s Fry and Bacon

  Liver polarises people, you either love it or hate it, there really is no middle ground... The thing is, lots of people hate liver but eat pate' so I'm not sure how that works, because the flavour of the pate comes from the liver??? Anyway, this use to be a...

Bunny Chow (Thermomix Method Included)

Bunny Chow (Thermomix Method Included)

"Bunny Chow" 🙂 no actually bunny was harmed in the making of this curry! Bunny Chow is a basic curry that was born in South Africa... Everyone has their own version, this is mine! I like Chicken, but you can easily use beef, pork or lamb. Even beans and tofu if you...

Apricot Chicken (Thermomix Method Included)

Apricot Chicken (Thermomix Method Included)

Since I have been kicking it "Old School" lately... who am I kidding, I am always putting up Old Fashioned recipes! Apricot chicken use to be the once a week meal that mum made when she was late home from work or something she could make in the morning before work,...

Slow Cooker Meat Pies (Thermomix Method Included)

Slow Cooker Meat Pies (Thermomix Method Included)

Pies, I mean really, what is more iconically Australian than a meat pie and sauce. Unfortunately every time I feel like a meat pie and then buy one, I am always disappointed. 🙁 Even the fancy (expensive) gourmet pies leave me feeling lacklustre and wishing I had used...

Chinese Cooked Chicken (Thermomix Method Included)

Chinese Cooked Chicken (Thermomix Method Included)

This has to be the easiest way to cook chicken as you set and forget. The dressing is in two parts and it sounds a bit bizarre, but it tastes fantastic. The chicken is also cooked in a strange way, but you will have to trust me it actually cooks and tastes wonderful....

Chicken and Corn Impossible Pie (Thermomix Method Included)

Chicken and Corn Impossible Pie (Thermomix Method Included)

Love, love, love Impossible Pies... So quick and easy and really, you can put anything in them, you are only limited by your imagination and the size of your pie dish 🙂 This recipe is for an 8 cup pie dish, but you can halve it if you only have a 4 cup dish...

Lamb Kofta with Easy Couscous (Thermomix Method Included)

Lamb Kofta with Easy Couscous (Thermomix Method Included)

I first started making Lamb Kofta only a couple of years ago when I was living with a family for a year. It became one of those go to recipes when ever lamb mince was on special. Honestly, they are just really fancy lamb rissoles, but because they are shaped...

Spanakopita Triangles (Thermomix Method Included)

Spanakopita Triangles (Thermomix Method Included)

  I love Spring, it is my second favourite season (Autumn is my fav). I particularly like to eat lamb in Spring, it is often cheaper and I love a good lamb chop on the BBQ. However lamb can be very expensive and what use to be the go to Australian meal, most...

Let Them Eat Quiche! (Thermomix Method Included)

Let Them Eat Quiche! (Thermomix Method Included)

Quiche is not a dirty word. It is a fantastic way to feed a lot of people for not a lot of money, especially if you make your own pastry. Yes you can buy the pre packaged kind, but it is so easy to make your own. Just give it a go! It tastes much better and is a lot...

Garlic and Chilli Mussels (Thermomix Method Included)

Garlic and Chilli Mussels (Thermomix Method Included)

I first tried this delicious dish in Parramatta, Sydney at an Italian restaurant called "The Sicilian"  It was unexpectedly fabulous, with enough heat to still enjoy the flavour. It came with two very large pieces of sourdough bread and some extra chillies on the...

Moroccan Fish Stew (Thermomix Method Included)

Moroccan Fish Stew (Thermomix Method Included)

This recipe serves 4 – 6 people (just for you Janet) So to start with, when you think of a stew you think long cooking and sometimes stoggy food. This recipe does not take long, is anything but stodgy, it is tasty, fresh and easy to make. It seems like there are a lot...
