  • I am a huge fan of Alice Zaslavsky. You may have already seen her Cheesy Quinoa Bites and excellent chat on feeding kids on my site! I'm now also enjoying diving into her magnificent book, In Praise of Veg. This recipe is from there. Alice doesn't write Thermomix methods but she certainly knows her away around a TM and heartily agreed with me when I pointed out that this beetroot and cauliflower soup is made so much easier when the Thermomix is used to help with prep!
  • Fun to make, enchanting to serve and lovely to eat, this brioche-style bread is an all-round win. Making the interlocking heart shapes can be a little challenging but who said the path of true love should run smooth?
  • This magical lemony tahini saucy magnificence is brilliant with roast veg salads but it’s also incredible over grilled meats, dolloped into pides or sandwiches, or over other salads.
  • During lockdown, when I was shopping for my parents, they always put kohlrabi on their shopping list. This tart, earthy yet slightly sweet member of the cabbage family isn’t a vegetable I often bought, but I started getting one for them and one for me, gaining a new appreciation for it along the way.
  • Making my mornings manageable and keeping their tummies sated and brains concentrated throughout the day.
  • Not too sweet, and with wholesome almonds, this moist cake makes the most of seasonal plums. There are two plummy elements: a simple plum syrup (stirred through the batter and drizzled on top), plus the plum-studded cake itself.
  • I was thrilled to learn that this cocktail of mine (the original version without finger lime) has been shortlisted for the Thermomix Recipe Hall of Fame! Have you made it? The zesty cooler has been one of the smash hits from my Entertaining cookbook, where it stars in the Mexican chapter.
  • Eggnog is a classic Christmas drink made with a custard base. Naturally, chocolate queen Kirsten Tibballs’ recipe has a chocolate element to make it even more delicious. Kirsten uses white chocolate to flavour and thicken the base, plus milk chocolate to line the rim of the glass. I love eggnog with hazelnutty Frangelico but you don’t have to add the booze at all. See the Tips for brunch ideas with leftover eggnog.
  • Kirsten Tibballs' spectacular and delicious Christmas shortbread stack is filled with cinnamon ganache and decorated with nuts and dried fruit - Yule love it! I'm also sharing Kirsten's tips for a fabulous Christmas.
