Homemade almond milk made at a fraction of the cost of the store bought variety. We use a lot of almond milk at home particularly in breakfast smoothies. While I normally purchase almond milk from the supermarket I decided to give it a go myself at home. It works and tastes great!

If you have never tried Hasselback potatoes you’re missing out! I first tasted them when I was a kid and immediately wanted more. Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside and kind of funky looking with their fanned out slices, they are definitely a cool looking vegetable.

kale, brussels sprout and bacon salad

kale, brussels sprout and bacon salad

We think Brussels sprouts cop a bit of an unfair reputation. On their own yes, we agree they’re not the tastiest food out there but serve them with some tasty sides and they come to life. Topped with a hazelnut, cider vinegar and maple syrup dressing this bacon salad is great for a quick and healthy meal.

With a barbecue loving husband who likes to fire up his Weber Smokey Mountain most weekends its my job to come up with salads to compliment the low and slow cooked meats. While I do enjoy my not so traditional cauliflower ‘potato’ salad sometimes you just want the real thing which calls for roasting some potatoes and including some bacon.

avocado mayonnaise

avocado mayonnaise

One of the selling points of buying a Thermomix is the ability to make delicious home made mayonnaise. While we normally use Kewpie (Japanese) mayonnaise for use in small doses if we need a lot of it for potato salad or a dipping sauce there is really no better option than fresh home made.

Brisket. The holy grail of barbecue. If you over cook it becomes dry, under cook it and it will be tough and chewy. But get it just right and it is out of this world!
