« on: January 12, 2018, 05:58:32 am »
Happy New Year everyone. I have not been here of late but when I have a query and want unbiased honest answers I come here. I am thinking of buying Enjo especially for the kitchen and bathroom. Is it worth the money and which Enjo products do you recommend?

Chit Chat / Is there any way of finding this Forum's most popular recipes?
« on: September 11, 2016, 09:13:16 am »
As I am making the caramelised onion, mushroom and feta tartlets for the umpteenth time, I was wondering if there is any way of accessing the most popular recipes on this Forum.

Any takers?

Hi there

A long time ago someone placed a recipe for leg of lamb with balsamic vinegar and sun dried tomatoes. I have cooked it many times since it was so quick and easy and yet so tasty. Now for the life of me, I cannot find the recipe.

Can anyone help?

News about Thermomix / Release of Thermomix in USA
« on: August 16, 2015, 02:21:16 am »
Hi all, Don't know if it has been mentioned before (since I have not been on much recently) but there is an article in House Beautiful about a "blender" being released in the USA. The most interesting point is that it costs $1200 in the USA.  Even with the difference in exchange rates that it nearly half of what we have to pay.

Chit Chat / Gluten free brands
« on: August 15, 2014, 10:27:03 am »
My DH has recently found he may have to go gluten and diary free to see what is causing his various ailments. My experience with different brands of gluten free pasta is singularly negative. The pasta sticks together and is just claggy.

Any good brand recommendations for gluten free products such as pasta?

Questions? Technical Issues? The Survival Guide / leakage from the bowl
« on: August 14, 2014, 04:02:14 am »
Has anyone else had this problem?

There looks to be some leakage from the bowl to the base. At first, I thought it was rust but it is not rust.

I keep wiping it and it keeps reappearing!

Chit Chat / A vote of the moderators
« on: July 24, 2014, 07:43:44 am »
I just want to formally acknowledge the tremendous work that the moderators are currently putting in to insert various forum members comments/tweaks under the actual recipe. It makes life so easy! For example, I wanted to make lemon meringue pie that BZB had recently made. It was great to go the recipe and read all the variations immediately below the recipe instead of trawling through xxxx pages.

A big thank you!

Has this happened to someone else? For the last 4-5 days when I try to log in to the forum, it treats me as a guest (but only after asking me if I want to use the forum through tapatalk). I have deleted the shortcut and reloaded but no luck. Any ideas on how to fix this please?

Tips and Tricks / Stephanie Alexander's polenta and feta bites
« on: February 22, 2014, 07:13:51 am »
Would love to make the following recipe for my book club this week, but I don't want to be stirring the polenta (after owning a TMX it seems such a waste of time!). Can someone convert the boiling and stirring for the TMX please?


1 tbsp olive oil (for greasing)
100g feta, crumbled or grated
50g parmesan, grated
1 cup milk
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups water
3/4 cup polenta
2 eggs, separated
3 tbsp chopped parsley
freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 220C. Brush each hole of 2 mini-muffin tins with olive oil. Mix the cheeses and set aside about 3 tablespoons for scattering on top of muffins.

Place milk, salt and water in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce heat. Slowly pour in the polenta, whisking all the time. Whisk constantly until the mixture thickens (you may want to swap the whisk for a wooden spoon as it gets thicker). Cook for 5 minutes, stirring all the while, then scoop the mixture into a large mixing bowl. Add the yolks, cheese and parsley, and stir to combine. Taste and add pepper.

Whisk egg whites to firm peaks and fold into the mixture.

Fill each muffin tin and scatter over the reserved cheese. Bake for 15 minutes. Cool in tins for a few minutes then turn out. Serve at once or refrigerate and reheat in the tins for 5 minutes.

Makes 20-24

Chit Chat / Air Fryer temperature and times - general guidelines 1st List
« on: February 15, 2014, 03:09:10 am »
Air fryer times and temperatures (general guidelines only).  See list 2 here.

Foil on bottom.  200* for 8 mins. Roll over halfway to get even colour.

Salmon steak
10 mins on 140 and about 2 mins at 170 to get the golden exterior.

Chicken patties
180 degrees 10 minutes on one side, then flip them over for another 3 minutes for browning the patties.
Cookie1. I made Bron's nuggets and gave them 10 minutes @190. I put the EVOO with the breadcrumbs and didnt do flour, egg and crumbs. The crumbs stayed on well.

Steak (rump)
180 for 10 for rare; 15 mins for medium and 20 mins for well done

Baking sheet. Spray gyoza and then 200 for 20 mins turn after 10

Winter roast vegetables
200 for 20 mins - turn after 10

Thai fish cakes
Preheat the Airfryer to 180 degrees C.
Place 9 fish cakes into the basket and slide the basket into the Airfryer. Set the timer for 7 minutes and fry the fish cakes until the timer rings and they are golden brown.

Frozen Calamari rings
From Costco pre heated for 3 mins at 200o and then cooked for 6 minutes. Perfect!

Frozen shoe string french fries
Cooked frozen shoe string french fries in AF. Pre heat @200 for 3 mins and then cook for 10 mins @200 - shaken  half way. I sprayed with olive oil at beginning and half way point. Yum.

The above times are all from Courton. Please correct or add to it as you see fit.

From Wonder - Frozen arincini balls (approx 2.5cm diameter)
Spray lightly with olive oil, in tray on baking paper for 5 mins 200 then remove paper and cook further 5 mins at 200.
This gives them a brown outside and hot all the way through. This is with no pre heating of the machine.

Wonder Pork Belly
The pork belly turned out perfect and no mess.
I used Teninas recipe from the Christmas Ebook. I cooked as per Teninas recipe up to placing into the oven before work this morning then after work rubbed in some additional salt mix, oil and vinegar before putting in the airfryer at 160 for 30 mins then an additional 30 mins at 180. DH wasn't home so I left in the airfryer for about 15 mins then cooked a further 5 mins at 180 when we were ready to eat. All the skin was perfectly crunchy and the meat moist and full of flavour.

Wonder Apple Pastries
Sliced apple, sprinkle with brown sugar and encase in puff pastry.
From start to finish, 15 minutes.
Cook in a preheated 200o air fryer for 6 minutes.

Wonder Potato Wedges
Par cooked 5 large potatoes cut into 6 wedges for 10 minutes in the microwave, drained and patted dry then put in a container with oil, salt and lemon slices and left in the fridge for the day.
Into the airfryer for 15 mins 200 degrees and stirred twice as the drawer was quite full and I wanted them all to brown.

Wonder Homemade chips
I've been peeling and cutting into chips then soaking in water for about half an hour and rinsing until water is clear. Once soaked I then microwaved for about 10 minutes until partially cooked, emptied water and then dried on a tea towel before placing in the fridge for the day. When cooking I sprayed with oil and cooked at 200o for I think 10 mins or until crisp turning a few times to ensure they were all nicely browned. This method suits me because I can make them to the airfrying stage before work and then leave in the fridge drying out during the day. The type of potato does have a big impact on the final product.

Judy Sweet Chicken Drumsticks
Sweet chicken drumsticks 180o not preheated, for 30 minutes turning halfway then increased heat to 200o for 10 minutes.
Placed a casserole dish into the a/f, added the 6 skinned drumsticks and the following liquid.
125g pineapple juice
50g brown sugar
40g light soy sauce
Thickened the juice later with 1 tsp cornflour but would add it at the beginning to save time. They are delicious.

Judy Roasted Cauliflower florets
Mix together 1 tsp garlic powder, S & P and 1 tablespoon olive oil and pour over a good handful of small florets.  Cooked 15 minutes in preheated 180o in the metal baking dish.  Stirred 3 times during that time.

Judy Toasted sandwich
Buttered home-made bread on the outside, cheese and tomato on the inside and toasted directly on the wire basket 180o for 6 minutes.  Probably not necessary to turn but I did so at the 4 minute mark to make sure it was toasting evenly which it was. Lightly toasted but crisp and crunchy and so tasty.  Bought bread may cook faster so check as you go.

Judy Carrot & Zucchini Stuffed Mushrooms

Judy Potato casserole - 2 serves but can be increased depending on the size of your dish.
Grease a dish which will fit into the a/f basket. Par-cook 2 medium sized potatoes (300g total weight).  I cooked for 2.5 minutes in a 1200w microwave but you could par-boil them.  Cut into 1cm thick slices, slice 4 small spring onions.  Layer the potatoes and the onions in the prepared dish.  Mix 1 tsp garlic paste with 1 cup cream and pour over the potatoes.  Cover with alfoil and cook in a preheated 180o a/f for 15 minutes.  Remove alfoil, sprinkle a couple of tablespoons or more of tasty cheese on top and cook 5 minutes 200o.  If serving straightaway, rest the dish for 10 minutes to allow the potatoes to soak up any excess cream.  Reheats well.

Judy Astarra's filled sausages - if just assembled, 200o(not preheated) for 10 minutes on baking paper.  Longer if made ahead and been refrigerated.

Judy potato skins & carrots
Microwaved a 280g potato for 5 minutes and a 130g carrot for 3 mins (1200 watt microwave).  Allowed to cool then cut the potato into 4 wedges and the carrot into 1 x 5 cm batons.  Removed all but 1 cm of flesh from the potato and coated the skins both sides in a mix of 3 tsp olive oil, pinch cayenne, 1/8 tsp paprika, 1/8th tsp salt and 3 tsp grated parmesan. Added the carrot and tossed it into the remaining coating.  Cooked the potato skins in a preheated 200o a/f for 15 minutes adding the carrot after the first 5 minutes.  I turned them once.

Judy Nutella Banana Pastries Makes 2 which when cut in half serves 4.
1 sheet puff pastry cut into 4 pieces.  Leaving a 1cm border, spread 2 pieces with Nutella and top with sliced banana.  Moisten the edges with egg wash and place another square on top.  Fork the edges to seal and using a pastry brush, egg wash the top.  Preheat air fryer to 200o then spray the wire basket with canola oil and place 1 square at a time into the basket.  Cook for 8 minutes, remove to a wire rack whilst cooking the second one.  Cut into triangles and serve with whipped cream.

Judy Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Dijon & Garlic

Jamberie Roast Chicken
What I did: I used a 1.4kg chicken (washed, dried and then rubbed a mix of lemon zest, 2 cloves of garlic, 2 tsp dried oregano, 2 tsp chilli flakes, 2 tsp dried coriander and 2 tbsp lemon infused olive oil all over the bird) and cooked it for 30minutes (including warm up) with a few cut up potatoes around the bird. At 30 minutes, the juices were running clear and I'm sure it would be fine, but I gave it an extra 10 minutes just to be sure it was cooked properly. Yum. If I use my airfryer for nothing else, it will be for roast chicken.

Jamberie Roasting tomatoes
I used the airfryer to 'roast' 2kg of tomatoes for MJ's passata. I stirred them through some rosemary infused EVOO before dumping the whole lot in the AF for 15 mins at 180oC. It was handy as the tomatoes didn't cook/steep in their juice as it drained through underneath. After 15 mins I just tipped the tomatoes into the TMX and poured in the juice that had collected in the bottom too.

Chookie Coles Frozen Crumbed Fish Fillets   6 in packet.  200o/13 mins,  turned 1/2 way.
Chookie Lamb cutlets from butcher shop,  flattened and light crumb. 180o/ 8 mins/turned and cooked a further 5 mins/200o.
( I sprayed both sides with Rice Bran oil prior to baking) very good.

Chookie Garlic bread  3-1/2 slices.  200o/4 mins.  Crunchy both sides.

Chookie Roasting Raw Peanuts with skins
1 cup raw peanuts mixed & baked in a small stainless steel container with 1 tsp rice bran oil, baked from cold for 8 mins 200oC.  Stirred halfway through.

Chookie Nay Nay's scones
1/2 quantity of the mix, cut with MC. Placed in round SS baking tin. Pre heat to 200o, cook for 10 mins, flip and cook a further 2 mins.
I reheated small Date scones,  5 mins @ 200o.  1/2 nay nay recipe.  

Chookie Light sponge cakes
These are based on 'Quicker than a packet cake mix', 1/2 recipe.  I mixed in bowl with fork.
Preheat A/F to 160o, spray 3 coffee cups with canola oil and divide mixture between them.
Bake in preheated A/F at 160o for 10 minutes.
Cover cakes, ( I used pie tins not foil as it will not remain on cakes) then bake a further 5 minutes at 160o.
Note - I initially made 2 but 3 cups will fit and give a better size cake.
Could use any of the suggested flavorings from the Quicker than a packet cake link.
Further option - Into 3 well sprayed coffee cups place 1 dessertspoon of frozen mixed berries and 1 tablespoon of berry jam.
Pour sponge mix on top, bake as directed. Tip out on to serving plates and serve with cream, custard or ice cream.
I reheated the 3 in microwave for 30 seconds.

Chookie Astarra's Golden Chicken Nuggets
Made 2 versions & 19 patties from the mixture.
Cooked them in a stainless steel dish.  
1st version - no oil, cooked 8 minutes on 180o, turned then cooked 7 minutes 180o.
2nd version - coated with panko crumbs and sprayed with rice-bran oil.  Cooked 15 minutes 180o, turned then cooked 8 minutes 180o.

Chookie Tomato Charlotte
Made a small one in the AF.  Slices of onion , garlic, and tomato, topped with bread crumbs.  Baked for 20 mins/ 180o, covered with foil, then 10 mins/ 200o to brown top.  Good.

Chit Chat / What are your favourite food blogs?
« on: October 11, 2013, 06:05:52 am »
Hi, just wondering what are your favourite food blogs? We quite often mention the TMX ones but there is hardly any mention of general food blogs. For example, Not quite Nigella.

What are some of your favourites?

Chit Chat / How to stop a new woollen blanket from shedding so much!!!
« on: August 29, 2013, 12:26:56 am »
I bought a queens size woollen blanket which is shedding so much wool, it is unbelievable. I bought a Dyson Animal vacuum cleaner just for this, but I really need to limit the shedding. Googling has not yielded practical answers for a large blanket. Has anyone solved this problem or at least limited the shedding?

Hi, I hope I get a few answers to this since I really should have asked this advice a lot earlier ( a 24 hour bug laid me in bed most of yesterday). My 18 year old DD and her two  girlfriends are going to Melb early Tues. What would you recommend for them to see and do? Where are good shopping outlets selling inexpensive items ( they are Uni students!)? I presume Bridge Road is no longer as good as it was. Where should they go for some fun times?
