I sat at the computer this evening to check my emails... and read the BEST email I have ever received from a friend!  (Client first, now friend!)

I reprint it here word for word... except the names....  Enjoy!!  I know I did, I'm still smiling and had replied that I have never been so happy to get the blame for something in my life!!

Washing powder - Grandma used grated soap... but its all mysterious now isn't it?  All "special" ingredients and little blue flecks that are SURE to clean your clothes properly... right?


I mean.... what is IN your detergent?  Wikipedia has a list of chemicals a couple of pages long - cleaners, foamers, ANTI foamers, bleaches, enzymes, softeners, perfume, and a LOT of science experiement type of chemical names.

Thermomix... a good investment?

Posted by Bee & John on August 7, 2012 at 5:10 AM Comments comments (3)

 So.... how much do you have to use your thermomix to make it worthwhile?

  

This post was prompted by someone telling me recently, that I cheated in buying wonton wrappers already made. It made me think, in fact, I actually felt guilty after that comment, but should I have? Just because you have a Thermomix, do you have to make EVERYTHING you can, to make your investment worthwhile?


I often get the following statement at my demonstrations, "Im n...

Liquid in bread... why are there different amounts?

Posted by Bee & John on March 19, 2012 at 5:55 AM Comments comments (0)

I had a very interesting question from a client yesterday...

If the recipe for spelt rolls, basic bread, foccacia and pizza dough have the same amount of flour.... why is the liquid (water/milk) required so vastly different.  Ranging from 280g to 400g.  (These are recipes from the Everyday cookbook)


The answer - when you put logic to it - is that they are very different breads.  You need liquid in bread, that's a given, but the amount of liquid required ...

Long, mexican pizza

I was at a Thermomix function a couple of months ago, and a person brought this to share (amazing what gets brought to share when THERMOMIX owners get together!)


What a great idea.  She basically, made a long pizza base - then covered the middle with some taco flavoured mince (cooked in the thermomix... of course) do NOT buy the additive laden packets, get a dry mix recipe from your favourite recipe place - there are heaps online.

Josh's Sponge Cake

Posted by Bee & John on August 18, 2011 at 5:05 PM Comments comments (2)

Josh is 9 years old and his parents have had their Thermomix for about 6 weeks now.  Josh tells me that he has made lots of things. 


In his words..... "You just follow the recipe, it takes no skill!" 


His mum, Sally, tells me that she was a bit nervous when he was first trying out things but saw that he could easily handle the Thermomix and wasn't going to get hurt so she now just lets him go for it.


She sent me a photo of h...
