Chit Chat / forum marathon
« on: February 22, 2009, 11:37:45 am »
As a newcomer to this forum site I've set myself the task of reading everything on it and now after a total of over 15 hours, I have finally finished.  I have downloaded recipes, tried some and posted my opinions on them but I am disappointed that more people don't do this AFTER they have tried the recipe. All the recipes have plenty of hits but very few comments. It would be so helpful to know that others have given recipes their tick of approval or even thumbs down.  It would save us having disasters and from what I have read, we all seem to have them.  Whether the recipes are the Thermomix ones or conversions by clever cooks, let us in on which ones are a success and which ones are not.  It would save us so much time and money to know this. As Thermomix grows in Australia, let's band together and help each other be the best cooks we can.   Let us know your favourite recipes, how you tweaked them if they needed it.  It is obvious we all have different ideas of what is good or bad - you only have to read about the mashed potato to learn that.  I happen to love it but others do their own thing with it to end up with a taste they prefer.  Come on thermomixers, let us unite!

Today I posted my first recipe and made some comments on a few that I have tried from this site.  I must say, because they are tried and true, I am more impressed with them than those in theThermomix recipe books I have.  So many recipes are disappointing and need tweaking which is a waste of time and money as far as I am concerned. What we need are more recipes from normal, everyday cooks who are smart enough to convert their favourite recipes (I have trouble doing that unfortunately) or can come up with new ideas.

I have had mine for about 6 months now.  My daughter went to a party and kept saying 'Mum would love this machine" so she had a party and 3 were sold on the night. I find it great for cakes and desserts (although we don't eat a lot of high calorie foods) but am disappointed with main meals. Still, I wouldn't give it back for the world as it is such a clever little machine which just needs tastier recipes to try in it.

There are only the 2 of us in this house so I find I only need to cook 3 or 4 times a week and eat leftovers or go out for meals the rest of the time.  My husband has MS so he doesn't eat a lot at the best of times and most of the desserts I have to eat on my own which is not good for the waistline. Mum doesn't mind me taking bits and pieces around to her to try.

I love this site and spent hours on it before actually committing fingers to keyboard and joining you all.  Looking forward to finding many interesting recipes in the future, thanks everyone.  Regards Judy

Recipe Requests / Asian vermicelli salad dressing
« on: February 21, 2009, 09:03:15 am »
I was given the recipe for this asian salad and the detail for the vegies and noodles was quite clear.  However, for the dressing I was told the following ingredients but not the quantities.  Chilli sauce, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, S & P.  Can anyone out there give me an idea of quantities please.

Jams and Chutneys / easy beetroot spread
« on: February 21, 2009, 06:42:41 am »
This is an excellent addition to meat sandwiches, especially corned beef ones. It will keep for many months in the fridge if you want to double the recipe.

825 g tin sliced beetroot
3 tablespoons cornflour

Mix the cornflour with a little juice from the beetroot and set aside.
Place the rest of the contents of the can into the TM bowl and chop on speed 5 for 5 seconds.
Insert the butterfly attachment.
Add the cornflour mixture and cook 100oC for 4 minutes on speed 1.
Cool and place in sterilised jars in the fridge.
