lindt nutella slice

I have been making this delicious slice for a few years now after finding it on retromumma.wordpress.com. However as I went to give this blog credit for it I discovered they are no longer active. I can’t take credit for this but it must be shared!

homemade almond milk

homemade almond milk

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!

Gooey chocolate brownies that are gluten, dairy, nut and refined sugar free! I am so fond of these brownies that I think that they are on a par with my other favourite Thermomix chocolate brownies.

kangaroo salad with a sweet and spicy dressing

kangaroo salad with a sweet and spicy dressing

Kangaroo meat is extremely lean and as a result needs to be cooked quickly and is best served medium rare. Grill or pan fry the fillets, make the dressing in a food processor or Thermomix and feel free to mix things up with the salad ingredients.

Looking for a healthy chocolate treat to hit those sweet cravings? While this is refined sugar free it is packed with sweetness from dates and bananas. This is super easy to make in a Thermomix or a high powered blender. The goji berries give it a sweet crunchy texture and you can experiment with different types of nuts.

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.

tiramisu cake

tiramisu cake

Tiramisu is a decadent traditional Italian dessert that can be made with savoiardi (sponge finger) biscuits for an easy and delicious dessert. Some recipes call for raw egg to be used though I choose to leave it out. I do, however, include philadelphia cream cheese in the cake to maintain a think consistency.

banana carrot coconut muffins (gluten free)

Gluten free muffins with the option to be dairy free and refined sugar free. These are made with coconut flour, a flour with a unique taste that requires some experimentation when it comes to quantities.

Heston’s banana bacon cookies

Both Craig and I are huge fans of Heston and his scientific approach to cooking. We have his Heston at Home cookbook and have made these bacon & banana cookies before. This time I decided to convert them for the Thermomix. They are a great combination of sweet and savoury with a biscuit crunch.
