Hello All!

I just wanted to take a quick moment (as my bimby bread dough rises!) to introduce myself to all you thermomix forum users.

I brought my bimby home with me to northern Alberta (Fort McMurray to be exact) shortly after Christmas, and let me tell you we have been busy! I was always intrigued by the thermomix since I saw it perched on my Mom's counter when I came home for a visit in 2009. After years of snacking on delicious TMX made goodies and the odd pushing of buttons myself - I just had to have one! My Mom lives on the west coast of Canada and may be known to some of you as the blogger behind superkitchenmachine.com

This forum looks like a great place for a newbie to spend some time and I look forward to sharing delicious recipes and inspiration with all of you. I feel a warm welcome to the thermomix world already :-)

Running back to the kitchen now!

Thanks so much for the hellos and the support!  And thank you for the link goldfish I will check that out...

Yes, as you would expect Mom is on speed dial! She has had some good phone calls from me, standing in front of the TMX over the past few days :-)

Well blow me down and call me mulch I never knew Helene had a lovely daughter. Welcome to the forum Natalia. At least in Fort McMurray you won't have the  roach problem we have in the tropics. I don't think they like the freezing weather that much. Also you can make easy sorbets using the snow  on your doorstep!

I hope your mother has sent you home with scrubbies and spatulas as well as  some great recipes.

Good luck and welcome to the forum. I can't believe you are already stuck into the bread making. You will be very popular in the neighbourhood.

Well my head is spinning! Yes, I have a daughter and yes is is LOVELY in SO many ways!  Kiss Kiss Kiss But sadly she is a very adult daughter who lives thousands of miles kilometers away Cry But the happy thing is that after three years of hearing me talk about nothing but TMX on every visit home, this year she finally decided she wanted one! WOOHOO!!!  Shocked Shocked I don't want to be a pushy mom, so am letting her go at her own speed... as long as she joins the forum, I am happy.  Grin Kiss Wink

Hi Gertbythesea!

Thanks for the hello! Yes its true what Helene says - I'm her babe, but all grown up and a little to far away for weekend visits :-(

No roaches here although we do have these little critters we lovingly call "tar sand Beetles"and I bet they are almost as nasty!

I love the idea of snow sorbet! Maybe once I practice my skills I can make a recipe ;-) there would be plenty to go around here I'd say we a pushing 3 feet of the white stuff....

In regards to the scrubbies and spatulas I didn't want to brag but I'd like to think, hope and pray I have a lift time supply! With the recent bread making that brush saves the day for cleaning....

See you 'round Gert

Hi Natalie, welcome to the forum.  How lovely for us all to meet Helene's lovely daughter - my DD has a TMX too but is too busy to join the forum and probably wouldn't want everyone to know I was her Mother either  Roll Eyes  Well, that may not be entirely true as she was the one who introduced me to the machine and just loves how it has given me such an interest here and how I have made so many new friends as well.

You will have to come up with some great recipes and send them to Helene for inclusion on her blog - only the very best recipes get posted there though so you will have to come up with something very special  Wink

Have fun with your TMX and enjoy our forum as well.

A very warm welcome Natalie. It is lovely to have you with us. Your Mum is such a wonder woman, but then you would already know that. I can't imagine snow as you describe it being in Perth, Western Australia. Looking forward to hearing lots more from you and I hope the bread turned out well. Smiley

Hello and welcome Natalia, lovely to have you here! Your mother is an awesome woman, and I'm sure you would have inherited some of that awesomeness too Grin
You're very enthusiastic, jumping into the bread making! We've had thermie for years and I've probably only made five loaves! Can't wait to hear what else you cook Smiley

Thanks everyone for the hellos!

Like you say Judy you don't just get a thermomix when you open the box it opens the door to new friendships also!

Cookie I can only dream of the weather in Perth, anything above zero degrees sounds lovely right now! Heck I'd do a happy dance for plus 1 ;-)

Cornishcream, thanks for the warm welcome form the UK - trying hard to follow in my Mamas footsteps!

Kimmyh like you I love the homemade bread! And finally I'm realizing how awesome the accessories are. I must admit I didn't fully understand the greatness of that little brush, scrubby or spatula until I tested them all out with the bimby and yah, I must say my Mom is onto something with those tools - they sure do the trick!

Amy I think it's time I expand my horizons - I've probably already made 5 loafs and little else (not sayin' its a bad thing! Haha) I'm thinking is forum will help me get a lot more inspiration :-)

Creampuff - I'm hanging on tight and so far loving the ride!

Thanks so much for the warm welcome, I'm feeling the love from the TMX community and it's so great....now, what to make today?
