Chit Chat / Exploring the TM5
« on: August 24, 2016, 02:24:39 am »
Hi All,

   My TM5 came last night, I unpack it and put everything in the dishwasher expect the bowl and knife I wash them by hand.

Day one, started out with grinding my coffee beans for french press coffee, that went well, then I tried one of the auto receipts boil white rice, it wasn't bad, but I thought it was a little under cook plus some of the rice stuck to the bottom of the pot, I was surprise that the knife does not spin the complete cooking time.

After dinner I tried the magic bean chocolate cake, the cake went over very well, I had one of my grand daughters plus couple neighbors and my DW as guinea pigs, I was really surprise how good it was, I am not a bean person. Plus my DD (in law) said I should have not told her. I guess adding sugar butter and eggs can make anything good.

PS: I had a opps with the cake I tried to remove it from the pan while it was still hot. Big no no. :-))

Well thatís all for tonight  more TM5 in the US south to come.


Tips and Tricks / What is a dessertspoon
« on: August 19, 2016, 01:32:29 am »
Can someone please answer this for me. When a recipe calls for 1 dessertspoon is that the same as 1 tablespoon (15ml) ? In the USA we use teaspoon and tablespoon.

Teaspoon, tsp 5ml
Tablespoon Tbsp 15ml

Thank you for your help

I love cooking and I cook of my wife and myself daily and cook for big group also, I have 6 kids all grown up now and 10 grand-kids so far. I have been looking at the Thermomix for couple of years and just found out that they are now being sold in the USA. 8) I have a lot to learn and am looking forward in trying some dishes for other parts of the world.

Anyway thanks for letting me join this great group.
