Your quiche just turned into a mornay CP - it looks very tasty.  

I can see this thread taking off.  Cookie, you should put that cake disaster on here  :D

I can't remember, could have been from the cheese even. Anyway served the slop up and you just had to close your eyes cos it tasted fine  :D Holiday was fantastic, really relaxed and enjoyed the warmer weather and have lots of laidback memories to keep me going.

I've nearly done that but not quite. Thanks for the chuckle. Have a look at the photo of my cake here (http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=3779.0).
It's one of my 'best' failures.

What a mess Fundj - I should have taken a pic of my biggest hiccup with thermie!!  In my cooking frenzy last week before leaving for Sydney, I was blitzing some choc - no problem and a perfect result, added the next lot of ingredients and set to speed 6 with an awful sound, (http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys/smiley-think004.gif) (http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys.php) -  no problem will begin time and speed again with an even sicker  sound - on inspection some gremlin had obviously been in the bowl as the blade was sitting sideways (http://www.smileyvault.com/albums/CBSA/smileyvault-cute-big-smiley-animated-035.gif) (http://www.smileyvault.com/) !!!!!!!!!!  I had no idea that the hole at the base where the blade sits in the machine was so deep - ended up with a cotton bud cleaning blitzed choc form everywhere not tho mention the gooey mixture!!!!!! I had not attached the base to the machine - it was still sitting on the sink :)  :)  :)

I was to flustered to take a photo, when in a hurry grabbed the TM bowl from the dish drainer put it in the TM poured milk in to see it coming out the bottom of my TM, :o DH had washed up and pulled thermi apart. Even the scales worked 1 llitre of milk all over the bench, thanks to this forum I found the answer before my consultant rang me back. t]That was in the early days for owning thermi.

Post by: dede on December 11, 2011, 11:41:13 am
I don't have the photo but the other day I made some fruit buns which I accidentally over cooked. My DH got one out for his morning tea the next day and looked at it with a funny look then tapped it on the bench as they were as hard as rocks. He then put it back in the container and looked around to make sure know one saw him ( as he wouldn't want to offend me lol)
 I laughed when He told me as I put them aside to feed to the chooks. I had to break them up so the cooks could eat them. I don't think they would of ever been able to peck through the hard crust without my help.
Title: Re: Ops........................................... photos
Post by: andiesenji on December 11, 2011, 05:32:54 pm
Dede,

For future reference, when you have any bread product with that problem,  heat your oven to  200° C.,  run cold water all over the outside of the bread or rolls (buns)  and put them straight into the oven directly on the rack for 5 to 7 minutes for rolls.  Whole loaves of hard-crusted baguettes, etc., will take 12 to 15 minutes.

Try it.  I'm sure you will be surprised.  This is an old baker's trick for refreshing  day-old bread  for folks who show up early in the morning for the half-price stuff from the day prior.   

Title: Re: Ops........................................... photos
Post by: dede on December 11, 2011, 11:59:05 pm
Thanks for that info,, I will definitely try that trick next time.
Title: Re: Ops........................................... photos
Post by: DizzyGirl on December 12, 2011, 03:43:37 am
I have made many boo boos, too many to mention  ;D

I must say that this little read has made me feel more comfortable with my cooking skills.

The husband swapping, now thats an interesting idea. Some days I feel llike putting an ad in the local paper: "Husband - Free To Good (or bad) Home" But then who would clean windows  ;)

That's an interesting tin Uni, a pipe loaf tin without the ridges.  I think perhaps you had too much dough in there and some wanted to get out  ;D I love those loaves, your tin is far bigger than mine.
Title: Re: Ops........................................... photos
Post by: fundj&e on December 14, 2011, 11:16:52 pm
i think mine is a pudding tin JD,i think it was achookwoman who said that. i used 800g of dough, if and when i try it agian i will use 700g what do you think.
Title: Re: Ops........................................... photos
Post by: judydawn on December 14, 2011, 11:19:27 pm
Chookie would be the one to advise how much dough Uni but not too much managed to get out so I daresay 100g would be enough to reduce it.
Title: Re: Ops........................................... photos
Post by: cookie1 on December 15, 2011, 04:51:34 am
DH loves it when my pipe loaves 'explode' or tins with lids leak out. He enjoys the crunchy pieces that are created.
Fundj I think it looks pretty good.

DH was trying to liven up a cauliflower puree with some blue cheese (the type with a dark ash rind). Of course, blue/black and white make a mysterious grey.
One of those 'close your eyes and eat it' moments. It tasted great but looked like wet concrete  :o

fundj, can I recommend you go to your doctor and get a blood test for your thyroid, iron levels, and a few more other things etc
I have procratinated for so long and have just "treated"myself to doing this and have been called back for an appointment on Tuesday to discuss the results. Next thing after that is a mammogram - what a treat!

Another thing to think of is "menopause"....think my body is umming and aaring about this and throwing a few things out of whack than normal.

This one's to make you feel better Fundj.  Only a blind man would be happy to see it.  I'm going to call it Pavlova Crumble.  Serve crumbled over your favorite filling. :o

I made a Pav yesterday as well, but I think I added the sugar too quick and the mixture was a bit thin, so I end up lining a cake tin and placed the pav in that. It still turned out really yummy, topped with some cream and fresh raspberrys from the garden.

Made the ultimate chocolate cake today   ;D

Decided on muffin size as they are just about right for DGS.
I think these have to be the ugliest cakes I have ever made.  The batter stuck to the pan and everywhere.
But they got the thumbs up from DH and DGS so I will try again.

not to bad rosie. they tasted great thats all that counts. did you over fill them ?
I'm not sure what went wrong.  The batter was very runny.  I only 1/2 filled the cases but they rose to over double size and had huge holes in them.  :o :o I tried to get pics of them out of the tin but it didn't show as they cakes were so dark and chocolatey.
I am wondering if it was because I used organic cacao powder instead of the usual cocoa powder?
Everything I read said cocoa and cacao were interchangeable and I prefer the organic cacao
Title: Re: Ops........................................... photos
Post by: judydawn on December 22, 2011, 11:04:19 pm
I made the recipe in mini muffin pans Rosie and mine rose too high too although there were no holes in them. Lovely cake, just need to control it somehow when making muffins I think. I tend to overfill anything small, I think I 3/4 filled my pans so 1/2 full may have worked for me.

to make matters worse I made a big batch of the delicious fudge recipes from the forum and packaged some up to give as treats for christmas lunch guests, completely forgetting that DS is allergic to some nuts ....   Luckily replaced with the cookies and cream fudge before I could poison him tomorrow.

tried to make the Pavlova from In the Mix. Well the egg whites fluffed up nicely and just about came through the MC hole! After about 7 mins I noticed in the recipe that the sugar had to be added after about 5 mins. Started adding the sugar but because it was so close to the MC hole nothing was happening to it so I opened up the lid and stuck a spoon down the mix and it just when *PHOOF!* and deflated like a balloon. Not to be deterred I kept adding the sugar bit by bit until the time was up but I wasn't adding it quick enough like the recipe said, and when I took the lid off and had a look it was just a liquidy slosh. Hhmn....not sure what happened but I got my handbeaters out and another carton of eggs and made a Pav the normal way.

to make matters worse I made a big batch of the delicious fudge recipes from the forum and packaged some up to give as treats for christmas lunch guests, completely forgetting that DS is allergic to some nuts ....   Luckily replaced with the cookies and cream fudge before I could poison him tomorrow.

Didn't even have a wine as an excuse for this one!
taking about poison did i tell you guys that my DH nearly killed me! The day i hade my teeth done  he was incharge of the meds
He  gave me double the amount of antibiotics and pain killers, 12 .30 that night oh boy was i in pain and feeling sick, he did call the poison hot line all they said was it will all be over in 6 hours and it was

LOL... It did taste good.  I had never used the Swiss roll pan before, and there's obviously a trick to the rolling!  I think the mistake was leaving it covered overnight...which the recipe said you could do....but I'm convinced it was too long.
I need "cake roll" tutoring please  :)
Also my first time using kirsch, and that added a lovely flavour.

There are videos on U-tube maddy but the 3 that I watched just fill and roll whereas in the past when I have made them, I have baked the cake on a tray liner or baking paper, unended it straight onto a fresh piece of baking paper which has been sprinkled with castor sugar then rolled the cake, leaving the paper in place.  After the cake cools, gently unroll it and spread with your filling then roll it back up, this time just using the paper to help you roll the cake.

Since TC moved in I have been baking a lot of Isi's bread, It is soo good and always a success.
And I'm using fresh yeast that I have been keeping in the cheese compartment of the fridge.
Went to get it today and none!?!?!?  I was sure I had a bit left.
Well,  that's odd..  So I asked DH if he knew anything.
Just a blank look,  then an embarrassed look.. :o
'Was that that bit of cheese that looked bad and smelt terrible'?  he asks..  I threw it out.

This is DD's disastrous birthday cake. This is a double mixture and as you can see it didn't rise at all. The texture was like a mudcake when it should have been light. DD hates cream so the white is mascarpone. When I spread the mascarpone it picked up the sticky crumb from the cake and didn't look at all nice. I served it with berry coulis and the taste was lovely. I've been thinking of what I must have done wrong and the only thing I can think of is that I used plain flour instead of SR.

Post by: dede on January 22, 2012, 10:44:38 am
Yes I know the feeling Hally, this has happened to us on several occasions, you know when you first sit down to a yummy meal and you grind a little salt ontop when whosh the whole container of salt ends up on your plate.
In the end I got sick of this happening with the twist around type of grinders so I brought a new set that you squeeze the handles together to grind the salt or pepper. Much better and no problem with accidentally unscrewing the lid.

Oh that's just great thanks Judy. Well if they break I will go back to the good old shake salt and pepper (although I prefer the grinders). I have also got the battery operated ones but found they kept getting blocked so don't use them either.

Having a couple of friends in for morning tea today so decided to make some of nay-nay's scones.  I thought they seemed a bit heavy when I was pressing them out but in the oven they went and boy what a disaster.

I had used plain flour instead of SR flour. :-))

They were terrible so threw them out on the lawn for the birds and they took quite a while to eat them.

Had a second go and this time they were perfect, so nice and light and fluffy.  I will be using this recipe again but will pay more attention next time.

A tip for anyone about to have a blonde moment like I just did...don't remove the MC and look down the hole when you're blitzing curry paste at high speed!

Lol. Not a good idea then Katie.

And talking about blonde moments, my DS (5) said to me yesterday "Mum when I get older will I be dumb?" no I said why do you say that?
He said "because I'm blonde"

Lol I laughed for ages after that.

dede it only cooked around the sides,  the milddle was still very runny after 1 1/2 in the oven, the cooked part is very nice

hools thanks for that tip will try it next time

most recipes on the net for this cake dont use the baking powder, do you hools ?

Yes, Uni, I use 1 tbls homemade baking powder( bicarb and cream of tartar). It's just the sugar I cut down by 100g. It's amazing how much mess it makes isn't it? Mine looked like yours too!!

Made nay-nay's scones for morning tea today.  Didn't have any cream so used some vanilla yoghurt instead.  Popped them in the oven and then got so busy doing something else I forgot about them.  :-)) Very dark and rather heavy.  I should have taken a photo of them out on the back lawn with all the birds having a feast.  Oh well won't try that again.

Guess who made a new recipe for Walnut and Apple Twist and waited and waited and waited for it to rise? I'd forgotten to put the yeast in. :-\ I put the yeast in and rekneaded it and reshaped it etc. Now I'm hoping it will rise. I need for it for supper tonight at our meeting. Otherwise it will be a very quick cake. What a dope. It shows you shouldn't do too many things at once.

Not too bad. DH and I could see bits of yeast in it but the visitors ate almost the lot and left the other food so it can't have been too bad. I have a photo to post.

I've actually run away from my kitchen and pantry. I was putting stuff away from shopping in the pantry and would you believe knocked another bottle of port over. It is under everything. I've mopped it all up with all the glass fragments etc and decided to run away to here. :-\ I have to wipe all my flour bins etc that live on the floor as they were sitting in it. I'm either never buying any  more bottles of port or finding somewhere else to keep the booze. It wasn't expensive. At least it wasn't the vodka.
Oh well have sounded off so I had better go and put everything away again.

Thank you. After I'd had a rant and went back it wasn't so hard. Would you believe DH arrived home from car club about 20 minutes after I'd finished? He asked what I had dropped this time. Gotta love him. :-*

Here's the bread. The taste is lovely but I think it should have risen more. Better luck next time.

My sister is pregnant again which is wonderful, she is a consultant and is suffering from what she calls baby brain. The other day she had to make some choc chip apricot cookies to take to a meeting. She placed them in the oven and started cleaning up only to realize that she forgot to add the apricots lol.
 So she had to then make another batch.

I'm not pregnant and I still have these problems at times.

Ooopps, decided to make 4 hamburger rolls for dinner. Had normal rolls, then the other 4,  mmmmm put a baking tray on them with baking paper to keep them clean.  They vary in rise, from 1 cm to wow nearly 3!!!! Might be able to slice the largest 1 in half!!

So how does anyone make hamburger rolls????

Love to know

Here's (http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=6802.0) Chookie's method Hally.
Title: Re: Ops........................................... photos
Post by: andiesenji on March 03, 2012, 01:02:33 am
The way hamburger buns were kept to a low rise in my mom's bakery (and the way I learned in baking school) was pretty simple.

After the rolls are formed and allowed the final rise, just before going into the oven they are again deflated, either with the flat palm or with a "punch" which is just a metal plate on a handle - exactly like a batticarne like the one shown here (http://www.amazon.com/HIC-Stainless-Steel-Meat-Pounder/dp/B000J0XH4W/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1330736470&sr=8-7)  just before the pan goes into the oven.
The rolls won't rise as much.
If any seeds were included, they were applied prior to the final rise.

P.S. I forgot to mention the "punch" was greased to keep it from sticking to the dough...

Oh dear my DD ( 8 ) accidentally spilt a full bowl of port wine jelly (unset) all through the fridge and on the floor. Poor little thing cried and cried because it was in and on everything.
The whole fridge had to be emptied and cleaned out and the floor mopped several times.
This morning I found more traces of jelly on the fridge seal and underneath the door shelves.
And the floor is still a bit sticky.

But DD 8 and DD 12 done a terrific job cleaning it up considering. The only thing I did was tell DD 8 that it was an accident and I'm not going to growl. (but she still cried)

I think she might be a bit more careful next time :)

Yeh me too cookie. But we all need to learn from our mistakes. When we do things like this we have to clean it up no matter how big the job is.
I couldn't help her much either but DD 12 pitched in and helped.

Post by: cookie1 on March 12, 2012, 04:59:43 am
I agree. I was thinking of how much fun (not) I had cleaning up the bottle of port I spilled the other day.  :D :D

When I wanted to cook as a kid Mum always made it clear that it was then my responsibility to do the cleaning up after. I did the same with DD and it worked. Even if it is spilled jelly.

Made pizza dough from the EDC book yesterday.  Cooked half and put the other half in the fridge intending to put in in the freezer after cleaning up.  Forgot about it and found it this morning.  It had risen up and burst out through the cling wrap so had to make another pizza today.  It is finally in the freezer and will do for a quick lunch for the grand children when they come.

I put the second batch into a normal size muffin pan and they still rose up a lot. Think if I do them again I'll put less egg in the mix. Still, very light and fluffy and should reheat well for the hordes tomorrow ( was expecting 12, but might be more 😳).

Couldn't face posting a photo of the mini meat pies...  A few had a fight with the pan and stuck despite oiling the pans. Never mind, everyone serves mini pies in cupcake papers these days don't they?  ( no one will see the mangled bottoms).

On a brighter note, my eclairs were the best I've ever made 😊.

Pleased to read that you did have something turn out the way you expected, Bonsai!!

Today I made a spelt loaf and played with the recipe a bit. It was very light and rose above the tin. As I went to put it in the oven I had to put it back down on the bench to move an oven rack and the top deflated!

But, worse, I took it out of the tin too early and put it back in the oven to crisp and it sunk through the oven racks.

It's true you can fix almost everything with icing.  First pic = the cake I made before I discovered the rack in my oven was not put in level.  The second pic = the same cake after I iced it!  (Incidentally, the cake was for afternoon tea for my son and a group of teenagers who had just been hiking through the Alpine National park for 11 days . . . somehow I don't think they cared about what the cake looked like!)

"Mummy, there's dough in the playroom," says a confused DS7 at 10pm
"What do you mean, 'dough'?" asks a stunned mummy, as guests look to DS7 with a quizzical look.
"You know! Dough like for making bread or something," he replies.
"Oops," says DH sheepishly. "I guess I forgot to make the Naan to go with dinner..."

So it happened at our place last night. So we have some naan dough that's been sitting in the fridge all night. We now have the oven preheating and are going to see if the dough can be rescued...

At least the Cashew Chicken Curry and the Date and Butterscotch Pudding went down well - no sure we could have fit in the Naan anyway.

I managed to curdle the creamy vanilla frosting.

At what point did you add the curd E.S.?......I add runny jam after the butter/sugar  has been whipped.....if you did the same, I'm not sure why that happened  :-\

Madly,

I followed your method, but I was trying to do too many things at once. The fault was with the cook, not the recipe. I didn't scrape down the bowl after I added the cooked milk mixture. I refrigerated it for the 15 minutes, and when I took it out of the fridge, I noticed that it hadn't incorporated properly, and that the butter mixture was stuck down the sides of the bowl. When I tried to mix it in again, it curdled.

I was not happy with the cake itself. I fell in love with the idea of a lemon layer cake with raspberry filling, and I tried to convert a white cake recipe, but it just didn't rise like it should have. I am still getting used to my Thermo Chef, and I should have chosen a different cake recipe. The raspberry curd worked well, and the icing still tasted nice. I am just dissatisfied as I have been waiting for an opportunity to use my new Wilton 1M nozzle and the icing curdled, ruining the look of the cake.

 I will just have to try again.

I think use by dates are for wimps! Seriously, I did a spring (make that autumn) cleanout of my panty recently as I was sick of the avalanche I was getting everytime I opened the cupboard doors- well, primarily, my DH was  complaining - not that he goes into the pantry that often. I found packets of jelly crystals, old spices, packet mixes ( I know, shameful, but all from well and truly before I had my TM). What's even worse is that a lot of this stuff accompanied us when we moved out for our renovation and then moved back 18 months later so I haves some things circa 2003.  Nothing looked like a science experiment gone wrong though!

Dede I don't know if it's just me, but I used to have that problem with homemade pasta often.  I prefered to freeze it, which is okay to do with lasagne sheets cos you can wrap them up, or ravioli because you can spread them out on a tray and then put them in a bag when frozen,  but not tricky with fettuccine.  We just eat it all up!

One very oversize white loaf of bread. It is almost 20cm high. It must have been a good day for bread.DH said that he thinks it will be hollow.

(http://img.tapatalk.com/76d290dd-1dcd-205e.jpg)(http://img.tapatalk.com/76d290dd-1de3-5717.jpg)I made Rara's pancakes, and one of the eggs was a double yolker!
I was using my pancake dispenser, and the handle got stuck. I tried to fix it, but in my befuddled state(it was morning ) I turned it on it's side, the lid fell off and a lot of batter ended up in the pan. I ended up with one rather large pancake the size of a dinner plate!

DH cut it up last night while I was in the shower, but he left my bread for lunch today out of the freezer. The slices are sitting on a normal bread and butter plate. I think one slice of this bread is equal to two of normal bread.

It looks good Cookie. Bit hard to fit a lunch box though.

True. DH has just gone to car club and he made himself two rounds of sandwiches with it instead of his normal one. I was surprised that it didn't have a big hole in the middle or under the top.

Thicken it with flour, and make into pies.
Or add cooked rice to it, and use as a sauce.

Hally it will still taste ok.
Title: Re: Ops........................................... photos
Post by: Halex on August 14, 2012, 06:42:04 am
Yes its basically cream, meat, the pasta I cooked separately. Might thicken & use as mini pies, boy its going to make a lot. Another day, still have more cooking to do.

Dede, .i thought of soup & add stock but if it looks odd ds wont eat. I have a load of chicken stock. It is just going to make a heap of pies, the good thing with pies they hide so much :D

I thought of a layer of potatoes & this etc, like a potato bake, what do you guys think?

H
Title: Re: Ops........................................... photos
Post by: fundj&e on August 14, 2012, 06:55:54 am
H you could try 1 egg and some breadcrumb and fry 1st if it fall apart add more crumb and if u think it will work add more veggies to the mix. And i would strain it 1st  :-))

I would do the potato bake type dish with some cheese on top and also some mini pies to put in the freezer and that way you have 2 different dishes. At least the pasta wasn't in it Hally  ;)
Title: Re: Ops........................................... photos

Another option would be to brown some cubes of chicken and stir through with some cooked pasta and transform into a pasta bake.

I probably should have done that. I normally use one of those knives you get from the supermarket, I think they're made by Wiltshire, and they have they're own little sharpeners that they live in. That goes straight through it. But it was dirty, so I just grabbed a knife from the draw.

I put in the TMX basket what I thought were some frozen cubes of potato that I'd thrown in the freezer a month or so ago to make a potato salad. They were cooking away with an egg for about 5 minutes when I thought I'd check them.

Strange...they were soft and gooey. I took the jug over to the sink and took the basket out. It was the weirdest thing! Soft and mushy, just like cheese.........oh sh$^!  IT IS CHEESE! I'd frozen some mozzarella that I'd cut into cubes to make it easier to grate in the TMX.

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-OzKB_lzn1eY/UEL2Mkz24YI/AAAAAAAAAos/ImbPUOXpIgc/s576/Mozzarella%2520mess.jpg)

After spending forever cleaning up the gooey disgusting mess of cooked mozzarella, I started again, this time with the frozen potato cubes, or so I thought. Checked again after it had been boiling away for a while. Strange...must still be some cheese in there. Took the bowl over to the sink and pulled out the basket. AHHHH! MORE BL&*^Y CHEESE!! I didn't think I had two lots of cheese in the freezer.

(https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-zHQ26XrOo9M/UEL2N63DdtI/AAAAAAAAAok/Wn1GDCMg1Ao/s800/Mozzarella%2520mess%2520No%25202.jpg)

This time it had cooked for longer and was glued on the bowl, blade and basket. It's soaking in cold water in the laundry. God knows where in the hell those frozen potato cubes are.

Went to put on the timer, whats that in those two bowls there,  Oops  forgot to put in the cornflour and sugar!! :o  Start again. Don't forget the cornflour and sugar this time. cooked for the 9 min as recipe says.  Gee its getting thick,  oh well done everything right!!!  first 4 cooked ok but by the time I got to the last 2 pies, the custard was cool and THICK. I was just putting thick egg custard into the shell cases, maybe as I had only done 1/2 recipe should 1/2 the cooking in TMX :-\.    START AGAIN,  This time only cooked the custard for 4 min, temp only reached 60 but they cooked beautifully in the pie maker. ;D

Yes thats right 3 lots of custard, first lot went down the drain, second lot go used, but not with great successs, and third lot was great.  ;D    Also when making these, they really need to be eaten within 24 hrs as the beautiful crisp pastry starts to go soft after that, but still very nice.
Title: Oops......Thermomix Mistakes
Post by: ~Vanessa~ on September 11, 2012, 03:58:38 am
Well last night, we decided to have salad with tea.

DP who is not at all convinced that the TM is worthwhile, mentioned about trying the TM to make some coleslaw. Well in my excitedness that he was willing to give the TM a chance, I forgot the EDC had a step by step recipe for coleslaw. I used the the Turbo button......result was from too chunky on the first check to resembling KFC colesaw on the second, but the taste was not the best for coleslaw, i think there was a little bit too much pureed veggies to, so in went a bit more hand cut cabbage and hand cut apple to try to "chunk it up" a bit.

LESSON TO BE LEARNT: Only use the Turbo button if you want four or pureed,
Chopped = 4


What other mistakes have people made and what is the lessons you took from it??

Hi Vanessa
I used to ALWAYS forget to reset the heat button after stopping to "have a look" i think when you are new you tend to want to peek into the machine to see how it is going.

I have made both errors, half cooked chicken (whole chicken ) and coleslaw mush. Both errors in the 1st month (plus some more) but pretty fool proof now :-) It is just a new way of doing everything. My husband has forgotten the early disasters I'm sure.

If you chop the carrot to consistent sizes and put it in the bowl FIRST then everything on top you will have success ;)

I think I have an oops coming up. I decided to be a smarty pants and makes this lovely fruit loaf I saw on Taste. It hadn't risen after 4 hours so I dissolved some more yeast and kneaded it in. It is still looking awful, although has risen a bit.

Uh oh, I was cooking some spicy nuts and now I have burnt spicey nuts. I think it is time to stop before I ruin anything else.

Title: Re: Ops........................................... photos
Post by: Yvette on September 21, 2012, 12:12:18 am
Thanks Yvette. I have put a copy of this into salads.

Cookie here is the recipe this was given to me by the lovely consultant Lynette MacDonald hope it is ok that I posted this:

Marion Jordan's Famous Curry Coleslaw

1 small head of cabbage cut into large chunks
60g chopped shallots (green onions)
120g raisins
225g frozen peas
120g peanuts
30g chopped parsley
240g mayonnaise
5g-15g hot curry powder



Place parsley in TM bowl and chop on speed 10 for 4 seconds. Add all other ingredients to TM bowl and chop on speed 4 for 3 seconds. You will probably have to chop again on speed 4 for another second or two until you have the desired consistency.

NOTE: you may chop your ingredients on speed 5 for 3 seconds but you could end up with mush, so I err on the side of caution and use speed 4.

My MIL is ok just lazy, always asks to help when it is done, I had christmas last year at my place with about 20 odd people, came to her tea and coffee time and she proceeded to make her and FIL coffee and not ask anyone else. I was disgusted. My mother offered and made the rest. Plus she did several other things which I wont get into since then I have been a lot less friendlier  :D :D :D

That would suit me Robyn my mum lives 5 to 6 hours away she would always come down if we needed an overnight or longer. My kids are spread apart 6 to 7 years so we didn't always need sitters we took them or did things that didn't need one.

I hope I'm a good MIL? I don't drop in unannounced, if we are nearby I always ring first to say is it OK if we drop in?
I never give advice unless I'm asked and try to hold my tongue when I have an opinion .... ALTHOUGH
When my DD stomped back home after their first argument, I did tell her it wouldn't be the last and to go home and sort it out with your husband.

I get along very well with with SIL parents too so that helps, we socialise a lot together so often the kids don't have to decide which lot of parents to see.

Sorry Amy don't know any young men in W.A. Being at Taffe, through your music and the gym you'll meet someone nice

I had my arms full of bags of shopping and a huge bag balancing on my back, i bent down forwards to put the toilet paper down next to the toilet door to save me a special trip back, and the carton of orange juice fell out of the bag rolled over my head and the lid  broke open and juice was just glug glug glugging out as I stood and watched in shock. All over my nice clean floors, down the cracks of the skirting, and also under my bedroom door. My DD thought I had hurt myself by the sounds of my shrieking, so I calmed down a little as I could have done worse than spilling juice over the floor  :D

Never quite understood how this could happen . . until it happened!! The other day was very tired and not thinking straight at all . . but wanted to make some bread.  . . somehow managed to mix and knead the dough without having the base on the jug.  Only discovered this when the jug wouldn't stand properly when I put it on the bench  relieved to find when I took the dough out of the jug, got the blades to where they should be, that the base just clicked in as it normally would. :D

Gosh ES they wouldn't have been cheap. There is a lovely blueberry farm down near Albany called Edengate. We spent ages chatting to the owners a couple of years back.
Where are you planning to spend tonight?

Good one Uni - that's a bit like the trick they play by putting gladwrap over the toilet pan LOL

It also reminds me of my DD when she was very young, she cracked an egg into an egg separator which was sitting on the sink then watched the white of the egg slide down into the bowl and down the drain.

Title: Re: Ops........................................... photos
Post by: Delightful Den on October 01, 2012, 06:36:10 am
I don't have Uni's excuse for being absent minded today.  I started making sour dough and after weighing th starter in to the bowl I pushed the scale button to zero it before adding the flour.  As I am adding the flour and looking at the read out I'm wondering why the number isn't moving off 1.

I had pushed the timer button not the scale button. Then I had to make a guess at the amount of flour zero the scale and try to get the right amount of flour.  I must have gotten close but a bit over. I t was looking good until about half ay through the kneading Thermy started to struggle. I added an extra 20-30 ml water and it seems to be the right consistency.

I guess a few hours will tell.

It seems to be ok.  :)  It has nearly doubles and I think it is a bit drier than the last dough which is what I wanted.  :) I should be able to bake them in another hour or so and will let you know how they come out.
Title: Re: Ops........................................... photos
Post by: Delightful Den on October 02, 2012, 01:35:49 pm
Well I got away with my previous mistake with the sour dough but I don't think I can salvage my yoghurt. I wasn't paying attention and added the starter then proceeded to heat the milk to 80 degrees. I am going to try and save the milk and have a go tomorrow when I get more pot set yoghurt to use as starter.

CP - would using baking paper help? or perhaps on a rack so the warm air is circulating underneath rather than the lemons sitting on a hot metal surface?  -  Just a thought . . . .
Title: Re: Ops........................................... photos
Post by: Emme on October 03, 2012, 05:55:38 am
CP, Don't know whether this will help or notl
 In an old CWA cookbook it has a section on fruit drying.  According to it oven temp. 45deg. C to 65 deg C. I dried the oranges in the dehydrator at 55deg.

Post by: CreamPuff63 on October 03, 2012, 07:43:30 am
The first time I tried I cut up 8 lemons and put 2 trays in overnight on 50 - but didn't do the single layer. This time i upped the temp to 125, 2 hours, and did the single layer. I need to find that happy medium.

Did you line your bread tin Katie?  Was that the problem, it stuck?  It seems to be one of those weekends, glad I haven't done much this weekend.

DD, they are the flattest cream puffs I've seen since I made my first batch pre-TMX many years ago  ;D  Better luck next time, looking forward to see a successful photograph.
Title: Re: Ops........................................... photos
Post by: Katiej on October 07, 2012, 10:01:29 am
Yes it stuck to the tin Judy  :(

No I didn't line the bread tin - I was distracted whilst making the bread by several things including an argument with DH (we never argue  ???).  I completely forgot what I was doing and didn't line the tin.  I thought I sprayed the tin with canola oil, but it was actually olive oil.  A complete stuff-up and the bread was stuck fast.  When it did come out, it was in 3 pieces.

We had some with dinner.  My DH said it's probably a blessing it didn't work out - it tastes awful and at least we don't have to eat it!  Don't you just love them sometimes  :-))

Poor Katie, it sounds as if you were destined to have an argument this weekend - if not during the bread making then most definitely after it with DH's comment.  I'll have to have a talk to that lad  ;)

DD if I was on a diet (but I'm not) that plate of cream puffs would certainly make me want to go off it.  Bet you were pleased you tried again and had success.

It's got 3 tablespoons cornflour in the recipe so I have slapped it in fridge with glad wrap over the top, and hopefully it will thicken or set a bit so I can drop them into the frying pan and shallow fry that way. Just makes me cross when a recipe is not tested prior.

DD you do have a lovely neighbour. We are similarly blessed. Our lovely neighbour does our lawn when we travel and we do his when he is over seas. He is so nice he often does the verge part when we are home. Then DH has to rush out and do the edges. Our verges run together and look lovely thanks to him.

Poor hubby. It can be rescued-see Judy's link. Also use vinegar, not lemon juice when making mayonnaise.. Vinegar is a consistent acidity level whereas lemon juice varies.

Really got to pop it straight in the oven once the dough starts to peep out of that hole, cos it just goes berserk in no time after that. Tip: never rest it up against a glass window.

I pop mine into the oven when I can see the dough coming towards the hole, I never leave it until it is all the way there.  I would have fought DD for the crunch bits Cookie ;D  It looks great, I must use my tin again soon.  Love having different breads.

What a waste of pinenuts DD.  I always toast my nuts in a heavy based pan on the stove top, stirring frequently as it is easier to keep an eye on them.  You never go onto the forum whilst you are doing this job but you have now learnt that lesson  ;D
Title: Re: Ops........................................... photos
Post by: Delightful Den on November 17, 2012, 03:19:33 pm
I should have already learned this lesson JD. I did it last weekend with walnuts I was toasting to make Umami paste.

I think I have definitely learned it this time.

Like Judy, only use pan and stand there watching...they turn so quickly!

P.S. Den......have you ever actually burnt popccorn before?
My DD did, in the microwave....they were smoking  :o
House smelt for days, and had to turf the microwave  :-))

Perhaps Chookie.  I have never posted in this thread (well, not that I remember anyway) but making Chookie's quiche today was almost a disaster.  Luckily it was an almost full 600 mls of cream or I may not have managed to get a cupful for the recipe.  If I had poured the cream in first it wouldn't have happened but hindsight is always too late  :-))  I had cleaned quite a bit up before thinking to take a photo.

Oh dear, you poor thing Judy.  Well I made two batches of fudge yesterday and one has gone in the bin!  The first batch was cookies and cream and I couldn't work out why it was so stiff.  I forgot to put the butter in :.  It tastes really nice, so I am going to blitz it up and use as sprinkles over icecream, cheescake etc.  The 2nd batch I used dark chocolate and peppermint essence, but I added the essence at the end instead of at the beginning and it seemed to set outside the fudge.  Looked yucky, even though it did taste ok.

I was cooking lentils last night and in another pot some orange rind in sugar syrup. DH was playing Rod Stewart singing "Let it Snow" as a joke and I was so distracted that I put salt in with the oranges instead of the lentils. Luckily not much so final outcome not affected.

No offense to those who love Rod Stewart singing christmas songs  ;D

I've never made Paris Brest before. First time was Teninas recipe from Just Desserts, and the next time was mine. The 2nd go I made the circle smaller and it just puffed out filled in what was meant to be a space in the middle. After it flopped I was over it cos its pretty warm here. Made a couple of batches of Johnro's cheesecakes (cherry ripe and honeycomb) cos we are travelling 1.5 hours away tomorrow for lunch, some berry coulis and caramel sauce. Will give it a go another day when its not so hot. Sort of know what I have to do next time, but disappointing that it didn't rise. (what you see in the photo is Teninas when I had finished all the cooking part I realised it wasn't going to rise in the cooling down period)  :'( :'( :'( hope no one else is taking cheesecake.

they look nothing like the picture I took the recipe from.
I think my decorating skills need a bit of work.     ;)
They taste too eggy for me and otherwise very boring flavour.
Might be okay with custard like a sponge pudding.

TY Amy.
I thought they look a bit like Oods from Doctor Who.
 Hugh has eaten several and Che has been munching them down today and seems to really like them. :-))
He has requested "Angry Birds" next time.  Heaven knows what the result would be.  But at least alien faces would be appropriate.

They took longer to cook than the recipe said  About 20 minutes. (I mixed and cooked in the TC)
And I only had extra large eggs (I buy free range for the Frog Mouth and the extra lge are usually the cheapest) so I think the mix was a bit too wet.
Plus I tried to cook both the small cake (in the base of the steamer) and the patty cakes in the top.
The cake rose until it touched the tray and the patty cakes tried to push the lid off.
Perhaps just one at a time.   LOL.    :-))  But it was late at night and I wanted to make them before bed.

For the past couple of days I have been browsing the net to see what other things can be done with sourdough starter.  I had pancakes in the freezer, had just made a batch of bagels which were pretty successful, had previously tried the waffles and they were great, had  success with the English muffins and had made bread and rolls with mixed success.  There are quite a few recipes out there so I printed out a few and this morning I made the dough for a pizza base.  It looked like quite a bit of dough for 1 base (intended for the freezer) so I decided to do half as cracker snacks and make 1 small pizza base, precook it and freeze it.  I will eat the crackers but they are not as nice as normal crackers but I cooked the base too long so that's no good for anything.

This afternoon I decided to make a cake.  It took 6 hours to double in size so it was 8pm before it went into the oven during which time I was trying to attend to DH at the same time so I forgot to put the crumble topping on it.  Not to worry, I had some philly cream cheese icing in the freezer and that will do.  Oh yuk, this was terrible.  At first I thought I overcooked it (it is not a high cake) but when I tasted it, it was crisp on the outside and soft enough on the inside but didn't taste anything like a cake.

The starter is back in the fridge and I think my experimenting days might be over although I wouldn't mind giving the pizza bases another go.  Sorry Chookie, I have failed you miserably but when I think about it, if these recipes were any good, you would have already done them and posted them on the forum as you have with the said mentioned pancakes, waffles & English muffins. ;D
The recipes I did today were from this site http://www.mothering.com/community/t/252347/things-to-do-with-sourdough-starter
They were the coffee cake and the pizza crust & crackers.

Judy,  good on you for giving it a go.  Unfortunately not all recipes out there are good.   I am delighted to hear of your success in making other things with your starter.   Yesterday I made a Dan Lepard recipe that was not a success.  Pigs in blankets.  Too much blanket and not enough piggie.

BIG oops!!!!!  Had this little leCrueset pan sitting on the bench waiting to be put away.... Knocked it off the bench and onto the  floor ... Landed on the handle! :(. Refuse to throw it out and will work on ways to make it still useful....was just ladling out some bolognaise from another pan when it happened. DS came in all concerned"Was that what I think it was?"  Saw the bolognaise was ok and said, "oh, that's ok then!!"  Lol

I was surprised too, Marie . This is the second pan to go like this.  The first was several months ago and one I'd had since the 70s..... Really can't believe it's happened again....:(. Can't believe there's any way cast iron could break like that given it only fell about 3 feet onto a wooden floor...

My DH made Fig Bars (http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=4355) today and mistook cardamom pods in the cupboard for the pepitas. The flavour is good but the one piece I have had so far had three full pods in, so the experience of eating them wasn't great. He is really disappointed as he did twice the amount and used all the fresh figs we were given. One cranky DH.
, lots of not so edible fig bars.

DW was icing a fruit cake for Easter.  I was given the task of mixing some green food colouring into the left over plastic icing for a cutout she was putting on the top of the cake. Well evidently I used too much.  :-))

I just poured a little on the left over icing and started to knead it in.  She happened to look over and see food colouring oozing out of the icings and took it off me. She poured off what she could and then blotted it with a paper towel.

I was going for grass colour not pastel.  ;D

Aaargh!!! Have people coming for pizzas tonight...all very casual. Thought I'd make EmaraldSue's Fudgy Chocolate cake for dessert. (The one with chickpeas - had to try it.) As I poured the batter into the tin, I thought to self that it isn't exactly runny and there's not alot of batter - should have been alerted then! I put it into the oven and, as I was cleaning up, I found the 4 eggs that should have gone in it - so much for getting out all ingredients beforehand - I completely overlooked them! I scraped the batter back into the jug and added the eggs, relined the tin and popped it into the oven, hoping it would be OK. Stage left comes darling son who decided he'd make a quick late lunch. Twenty minutes later I find the oven has been turned off....Aaaaghh! I'm still hoping it's not a total disaster!

Good idea :)

I make mayo without the butterfly. I failed filling the edc recipe, but made one from here where you put the whole egg in from the fridge with the temp on and it works like magic. There are threads here about rescuing mayo too :)

This is what happens to gnocchi when you over process the potato trying to incorporate roast pumpkin. I rescued it by dropping teaspoonfuls into boiling water - not quite gnocchi but edible. DH mixed the unused remainder with more flour and yeast for a surprisingly successful focaccia style potato bread.(http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/04/28/y6e5y2yg.jpg)

The other night when I was making soup I realised I hadn't added the diced carrot when I should have. So I thought I'd cook some in the microwave and add to the soup at the end. Blow me down the dish got really hot, exploded and caught fire. Very scary. Fortunately there was 5 secs left on the clock and as soon as the microwave stopped the fire went out. Whoa the house was full of a very toxic smelling smoke afterwards  :-\  needless to say we didn't worry about not having carrots in the soup after that.

microwave still works, but its in a utility cupboard so as soon as you open the doors you can smell the smoke (and its 4 days later). Not pyrex but glass - part of a set of different size small bowls that nest inside each other - so I thought it would be ok and set the timer for 5 mins. I was sitting at the kitchen bench with DD1 watching ("Mum! don't touch it!!!) and helping to count down the clock quickly. one of those moments when you needed a man around but don't want to admit it  :-))

PS. Don't worry it wasn't as bad as it probably sounds...

I invited my mother for afternoon tea for her birthday, and wanted to make her a sponge cake as that is what her mother had always made her on her birthday. However, I stupidly decided to bake it after my morning walk and before the school/ work run as sponges are always best eaten on the day they are made. I was doing fine until the flours needed to be folded into the egg mixture, and thermie did not cope well. The air deflated, and all the flour pooled around the blades. I then cooked it for too long as I was trying to do too many things at once. The result was two very flat discs. I was going to turn them into a trifle, or turf them into the bin, but Mum told me to give one a try. I covered it in lemon curd and cream, stuck a candle in it and we all sang Happy Birthday.  As expected, it was dry, but DS said that it was just like a big biscuit, and really yummy! Kids?

I think this is kind of the place for this.....

Made a sour dough loaf today .. Kind of ;D. It seemed to refuse to rise even after several hours in a quite warm spot... Put it in oven anyway... But oven is persnickety today and I doubt it was really hot enough.... And maybe baking tin too big? But it doesn't taste too bad at all.. Nice and crusty. Also forgot the egg wash :(

Remember that plump, milky triple cream brie I made, at a cheese class in May?
Here tis

(http://i618.photobucket.com/albums/tt266/nachothecat/a93c9496d5af181b3e300a2827ace029.jpg)


Guess who forgot to turn it every 2 days for 6 weeks  :-))....actually I only turned it twice  :P

(http://i618.photobucket.com/albums/tt266/nachothecat/d5e00493e4a2288d5215f49982fb56fa.jpg?t=1371704845)

.....and it had formed a lovely skin in the beginning too!

Wish you all could smell it!  (http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys/smiley-sick009.gif) (http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys.php)  I would confidently say that "Our Gert" wouldn't even eat this one!  ;D

Will throw it in the paddock tonight, and hopefully a fox eats it, and keels over and dies  :)

Post by: maddy on June 20, 2013, 08:00:43 am
Yup! 
It was suggested to store in cupboard whilst it matures.....out of sight, out of mind/

I'm too forgetful for brie I'm afraid, so I'll stick to making a cheeses that require much less maintenance  ;)

I agree maddy, out of sight out of mind - it wouldn't work for me either unless I almost tripped up on it each day.  So, on the floor of the pantry it would have to go for me.  If you ever try again, I hope it works out for you - it certainly started off looking great.

Dont know if this fits this thread but its the opposite to the happy thread....i have just done my first set of blades. Tried to whizz up some dried apricot jam, from the fridge. Now they just spin and make a horrible noise.   I do use my machine a lot and have had it 2 years with 2 bowl sets. Feel dissapointed in myself, you think they will handle anything.

I'm not so convinced of the overloading theory, rather that the shaft gets worn with regular general use. I'm now onto my 4th set of blades  >:( and I definitely do not overload cos I am very aware of this.

Post by: Bedlam on June 27, 2013, 02:31:11 pm
I agree CP with your sentiments. Dissapointing for such an expensive piece of equipment. My top piece with the blade rotates so I think if dad has some stainless steel rods he may be able to secure the blade onto the middle shaft.  Give it a bit more life.

Still looks pretty good, Judy.Yesterday, I made some fudgy wudgies very early in the morning to take to school for a lass who was leaving the staff for greener pastures.  Was running . . well, not late . . but close to it and couldn't wait for them to cool.  They were still soft when I had to resort to almost tipping them into the carrier.  My thought was, well, that's the end of that - but by the time I got to school they were cool and the ones that didn't break up on their collision with the carrier were great (I'm still picking on the bits that were left . . ;D ;D)

No photo, but you can picture this.....   DH unplugs fridge/freezer in garage so he can vacuum car. Forgets to plug fridge back in again, and I discover this 5 days later 😳.    He was mortified!     Did mention later that he thought the meat he'd used in a meal 2 days ago seemed a bit warm !!

Luckily we mostly use it for longer term storage of forgiving things like sourdough starter, preserved lemons, spices and pickles. The contents of the freezer had to go, couldn't risk it. Glad the meat I had to throw out wasn't too expensive (we often have a whole duck in there but luckily not this week), still I hate waste so DH kept his head low for the rest of the day 😡

We had to throw the whole lot out including the freezer and repainted the laundry to get rid of the smell. Only did it once in my lifetime!

Today I tried to make hamburger rolls, using the method others have successfully used weighting them down with a tray so they rise outwards and not upwards.

They certainly rose outwards! I have 8 plate sized 1cm high "frisbees"!
I obviously weighted them down to much.
Maybe I'll turn them into breadcrumbs.

Luckily I made 2 loaves of bread today which have tuned out ok.

Last week I was trying to be organised and make a bacon and egg pie to be reheated the following night.
I made cream cheese pastry as usual, but instead of using a Pyrex dish, I used a loose-bottomed flan dish.
When I was blind baking the pastry  I noticed that it had shrunk a lot more on one side than the other, so thought I would patch it up and continue cooking. As I was lifting it down from the (convection) microwave, I put my hand underneath the dish to support it and of course the bottom lifted up and cut through the pastry. I patched it up as much as I could and put it back to continue baking.
It looked ok as I left it to cool, and after I had added the dry filling, I poured in the egg and milk mixture......what a mess! It just leaked out of the bottom of the pan all over the bench top.
I was still in fixer mode, though and had the bright idea of wrapping the dish tightly in foil and trying again with another batch of egg and milk. No joy there, it just puddled into the foil.
Fixer mode rapidly switched to CBB mode, and the whole lot went into the bin!
Lucky it was a make ahead meal, and we still had plans for that night's dinner: beef stroganoff from the EDC, which was delicious.  :)

I was boiling potatoes the other day with pork belly in the oven. Hadn't put the potatoes in tmx yet when the safety switch flicked. DH turned it back and it flicked straight away. I quickly turned off the tmx and it reset properly. Aaaargh what was wrong with my machine???? Then I saw water running down the back and onto the bench... All over the bench...  I'd put the blades in the bowl but not put the base on so it poured out through the hole.  30 minutes later I discovered that the oven fan was just cooling and switched off. I hadn't realized I needed to manually reset the oven after the power failed.

Amazingly by the time we finished dinner (which was a but late as a result) it was working again phew!

I baked the Donna Hay Orange and Yogurt Cake but didn't grease the bundt enough. Rescued it enough fortunately as it was destined for a friend the next day.

The day before I managed to boil the steamer dry and smoked my veggies. That will teach me not to bother with the stove top. Hate scrubbing burnt pots but grateful that I was able to remove the evidence.

I think that was when tmx was busy making sophisticated banana cake with the wrong baking soda. Another flop.

Emotional baking was not quite so emotional yesterday. Phew!

Decided to have some vegetable soup from the freezer so I took the container out to thaw.  I was not feeling 100% so DH said he would heat the soup up for me.  I did not take any notice when he said this soup is awfully thick, I just told him to put a little extra water in it and it would be fine.  I can honestly say that Savoury mince soup will never be on the menu again.   :-)) :-)) :o

Title: Re: Oops........................................... photos
Post by: goldfish on September 29, 2013, 01:33:27 am
Marie - hope you're feeling much better . . .

Now for my note to self!!  Always check the (small) compost bucket before sending the contents into the worm farm or  burying them in the garden. . . . .

I have two bowls and some months ago I "misplaced" the second set of blades.  I searched and searched, checked the worm farm I don't know how many times, convinced that that's where they were.  Almost turned the house upside down looking for them as I couldn't understand where the blades could have disappeared to.  Philosophically, I eventually thought - stop looking -  they will turn up eventually, perhaps hiding in a bowl, dish or saucepan at the back of the cupboard (but I had already searched there . . . . . . :-)) )

DD was in Germany a couple of months ago, so asked her to pick up some blades from the Vorwerk store in Germany.

FF to last week and DS headed up to the part of the garden where we often bury vegetable peelings,etc trying to improve the soil there. Picked a random spot, started digging, and then yelled, "Hey, Mum!  Remember those blades you've been looking for . . .?!"  About a foot down - there were the missing blades ???  They'd been buried up there for months!!! :-))  (Heaven only knows how they found their way into the bucket - only to be covered and hidden by more peelings. It's a small bucket - a 2 Kg Jalna yogurt container that is kept up on a shelf so we don't normally look into the bucket as we contribute more to it- and it doesn't take long for it to fill up and then be emptied in the worm farm, compost bin or  the garden . . .

They were caked with wonderfully rich black soil. (well done, earthworms!!! ;D)  If they'd been a cheap and nasty item they probably would have ended up in the bin - but I hosed them off, gave them a good scrub and sterilised them as best I could using several turns in boiling water and steam - and they're as good as new!! No rust, no marks - a testament to top quality stainless steel and top quality workmanship!  Well done, Vorwerk!!! ;D ;D
Title: Re: Oops........................................... photos

And top marks to DS for digging in that exact spot GF - like finding a needle in a haystack, well done - a great story. Somewhere in my back yard is one of my s/s tablespoon measuring spoons but I've given up on finding it.

Another feather in your cap Mandi - what a Jack of all trades you are and please do post more photos as it all comes back together.  How long do you expect the renovation to take?

Post by: dede on September 29, 2013, 09:51:11 am
I need to dismantle a bit more before I can start putting it back together unfortunately. I have to have some timber repair done on the frame as there are parts that have been water damaged and rotted over the years (1977 Coronet pop-top caravan)
I'm giving myself a year to complete as it's a complete renovation and I can only work on it when I'm not busy with other commitments.
Poor DH just shakes his head when he comes home and sees a little less of the caravan attached :)

Honey, oatmeal bread  ???

I forgot to put the sugar in and realised when it was rising so I threw it back in and kneaded in the sugar.
Hopefully it will still taste ok.

I feel for you.....I put in a loaf and after about 10mins I could smell something burning. I checked the oven, and I had chosen the wrong oven setting - grill instead of fan forced.
We have both had a bad bread day:((http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/10/04/de9uqaze.jpg)

Uh oh, I have some rising.

My oops is that I wasted half of our cauliflower/broccoli au gratin and it was so nice too. I put it in the microwave last night to reheat and promptly forgot all about it. This morning I was thinking that I didn't have any of it last night.....and then I remembered :'( :'( :-*. It was a fairly warm night here so it went into the bin. I am cross with myself as it was so nice.

well I think I'm probably going to have a loaf of disaster when it comes out of the oven. I made some bread and the mix was very sticky. after lots of nurturing and proving I picked up the two sides of Glad Bake so I could put it in the hot casserole dish and it just fell and so I just picked up what I could before it went everywhere and threw it in the dish. probably will stick to the sides of the dish and not rise. what a waste of time - DD has been hanging around for me to make this bread so we can take the dog for a walk. I hope this is not an indication of what my cooking is going to be like this year  :-))

Post by: CreamPuff63 on January 01, 2014, 08:08:47 am
This just goes to show how bread is so forgiving. The topside looks perfect, and about 1/3 of the underside I had to carefully pull out the Glad Bake that had got mixed up in the dough when I threw it in the dish. That bit is abit like pull apart bread, but hey it rose after being completely flattened and manhandled so I'm pretty happy. Now for that walk...but I've got a sneaking suspicion that DD is now having a nap  :-))

No Uni's quick rolls made into loaves.
Only I use vit c powder, not bread improver, and 22g fresh yeast  it is this thread
http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=12530.0

Been using for two weeks now. Takes longer than the hour but very good bread. However the first flour I used was better.
Interesting how the different flours affect the recipes.

Gert I won't ever use bread improver, it is full of nasties, however I do now add a scant half teaspoon of vit c powder, which speeds it up a bit.

I guess not Gert.
I went out this morning to buy more yeast, and it took longer than expected... So although I'd put the bowl in a cool place it happened again. Lovely big 2lb loaf though.
Found a bakery ten miles away and it was much cheaper than by post, plus I was going to run out, as the postage people only send out mon to Thursday.

No photo but think i havemade too much sour dough of late.

Not sure it will be perfect but threw it back in with yeast and kneaded 2 more minutes.

I was creaming some butter, peanut butter and brown sugar for biscuits and DH called me away. I don't always put the timer on and so it just kept going. When I came back the butter had turned into cream and the brown sugar had started to caramelise on the bottom of the bowl. I think it went for about 4 minutes. It tastes nice, so I am saving it and going to try and turn it into something.
Does anyone have any ideas please?

Gee I am on here again. I put some vegie soup in the HMP to cook. First I blitzed the veggies and then added water and stock concentrate. I checked it after about 5 minutes and there was red liquid all over the bench and everywhere. I had added a Beetroot to the soup. However I had not tightened the bolt under the bowl after blitzing the vegetables and the liquid was seeping out and going everywhere.
Message to self:  always re tighten the bolt under the bowl after blitzing vegetables.
We're back in action now.

The cake came out of the tin but left about an inch in the bottom.  ;D ;D we have eaten the bit in the bottom, it is very nice. The cake then broke in half. I will ice it and cut the pieces to put on the plate, not put the entire cake out. Hopefully DH doesn't say "oh, is the the cake that broke in half?"   ;D ;D ;D


Gert it is the baking paper liner I didn't put into my cake tin to stop the cake sticking.

Sorry everyone, I was trying to split a comment from one thread to another and I've accidentally moved the whole of What's for Dinner tonight  :'( :'( :'(  Getting it back where it belongs is not going to be an easy task but I'll work on it.  Managed to get that part done now to split all the posts welcoming Mem to the forum.
Yay, success at last.  Phew, note to self - do not tackle these jobs first thing in the morning  :D

As part of the mushroom challenge, I made a portobello mushroom and cheddar crumble for dinner.  DH said that it was nice, but next time could I make it vegetarian. I looked at him quizzically as I'd served it with roast lamb, and then he showed me this:

Let me state at the outset that I'm not a morning person.
The kids liked Isi's Portuguese rolls so much that I thought I'd make them again, so I decided to start the loaf before breakfast. I picked the jug up off the dish drainer and put it on the scales, and measured in the flour. The problem arose when I lifted the jug and went to put it onto the base............
(http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/07/18/byhaha5e.jpg)

The blades were still sitting in the dish drainer and not in the bottom of the jug!
Flour went everywhere, but at least I hadn't added the wet ingredients......

My oops moment was yesterday making chilli jam/chutney; actually more of an ouch moment.
What I didn’t expect to happen was the reaction on my hands. I cut the chilli open and scraped the seeds out with my fingers and continued cooking. Sometime later I must have touched my mouth and then it became very hot and burning and even ice blocks couldn’t stop the pain. This went on for some hours and then my hands also started burning and to top it all off I forgot and touched my eye (this was after I had washed my hands many times); this chilli is very powerful and I had used the larger ones which are not supposed to be as hot. However, I liked the end product so will buy some thin gloves for next time and I also saved the seeds to plant. All is well now.

I am dangerous around chilli. I have no respect. Always doing that stuff. Once I had to walk around half the day with a class of milk up to my lips. Couldn't talk. Well that wasn't such a bad thing but I could not do anything because I had to soak my lips in milk . It never stops me though.

Put a dish of potatoes and duck fat in the oven underneath the lamb roast. Heard a bang after a minute and looked in to the oven to find a shattered dish and potatoes all over the floor of the oven!  Not a moment to take a photo, and I think I might have said "golly" or a word like that!  Not sure what happened, used the dish often in oven, was hot before I put it in. Big cleanup once oven is cold. Had to do another dish of potatoes but luckily nothing else affected. Sigh......

Well, at least I tried and now I know it doesn't work  ;D

Thought I'd be smart and make 3 baguettes from the wholemeal bread recipe we've all been doing this week.  Maybe I should have sprayed the form first but at least I can turn them into breadcrumbs. They didn't leak through the holes as I expected them to but they didn't rise much either.  I'll make up my mind when they cool down, I might still be able to eat them.

The first oops of 1915.(oops again! 2015)  ;D ;D ;D

I made a new recipe for a banana cake yesterday. Boy was this stupid when I have Chookie's Rum and Raisin Banana Cake and Tenina's, both of which are beautiful. Anyway the cake was a flop with a capital F.
The taste is only so so and I don't like the texture much either. I even managed to get the perfect soggy bananas before DH ate them.
I have decided it has to become a trifle. Does anyone else have any thoughts on what to do with a large banana nana anna cake that isn't the best please?

Probably a bit late to reply. You can crumble up the cake and bake on a lined tray at 120c until dry and use as you would biscuits in a cheesecake base. I did it recently with chocolate cake. Great use of leftovers, especially cake creation offcuts.

Another oops here today. I made a SD loaf late yesterday and popped it into the fridge overnight. This morning I took it out to let it rise some more. We have been out most of the day, but I thought it would be fine as SD rises slowly. It sort of overflowed. DH carefully cut off all the over flow bits with scissors and baked it. He thought it was great.

Today I made some impossible quiches (using a recipe from The Mother Hubbard's Cupboard blog - with modifications). I decided to make 6 individual ones, instead of a large quiche. I was worried about them sticking in the pan (even though I did grease it) so I placed some paper strips in the pan to make in easier to remove the quiches.

I obviously wasn't thinking about it being a fairly liquid mix and its ran under the paper and now I have my paper strips stuck in the middle of the quiches. Duh!

Guess I'm going to have to remove the paper and the crust along with it. Perhaps I'll just call them frittata's.

Just checked and it's actually impossible pie, sorry.
http://www.themotherhubbardscupboard.com/chicken-and-corn-impossible-pie/

I just used the recipe for the quiche mixture really - as I made 3 with roast pumpkin & feta and 3 with already cooked chicken & corn.

It wasn't as bad as I thought, I pulled the paper from the bottom and it managed to come out without taking to much of the crust. Some bits are hanging off the sides, but I reckon I can blame that on using GF flour! I've made these as part of lunch we are having tomorrow with the in-laws (MIL is gluten free).

It is a nice blog Karen. Today I've also made her custard tea cake (also GF for lunch tomorrow). It looks good, but if it doesn't taste nice I'm blaming the GF flour again!

Karen the tin is USA Pan brand and I bought it from that OO online place ages ago (along with a couple of breads tins the same brand).

No photo of my finger plus bandaid, but a reminder to me that my new blades are a lot sharper than my 4 year old originals. I'd gotten used to being able to pull dough out from around the blades - not any more!     Luckily just a nick

I've come very close too Bonsai.
I thought I had a oops moment on Saturday.  I had an oven full of pulled pork (Karens recipe).  We celebrated my sons engagement with 115 guests at the inlaws home.  Anyway opened the cover after 6 hours to find a blackened mess, even the sauce was black on top! II rolled my meat  over and covered it up and tried to compose myself before "pulling".  It actually tasted really, really good.  Not burnt but caramelised.  Thank god!
Wish I had taken a photo, honestly it looked awful.

My only saving grace with the pork was visitors in the house.  It was my quietest panic attack ever!  It took me a while to get the courage to look at it and start pulling.

We should put a warning on the recipe so we don't lose any members when they see the finished pork.

I hate it when my iMac changes my words when I am not looking.

No photo, but was making a lamb soup in the PC and after quite a bit of cooking had to reduce the pressure and add some lentils. On opening the lid I discovered the above extractor fan light protector had fallen in and had been cooking at high temperature nicely. Was all in one piece so I just fished it out and kept the secret to myself. Haven't cleaned it thoroughly in about 5 years apart from wipe overs every so often (oops)

Under all that kitchen roll is my sour dough stater. What a mess!!! I had just put 400g into the TM to make Chookie's recipe Sour Dough Loaf Activated in the fridge Overnight (http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=9383.msg137273#msg137273).I then added extra flour and filtered water to feed the remaining sour dough starter and whist stirring it I tapped the side of the jar with a spoon.Pop went the side of the glass. :o It went everywhere!! Freeking out I grappled the nearest container to save as much stater as possible that was left in the jar.I then strained it into a new jar.Its still alive and now safely in the fridge with the SD loaf ;)

Damn, blast and several other expletives. I needed to cook this morning so I made some Cherry and Strawberry Jam that tastes devine. Next on the list was a chocolate cake. I decided to try a recipe on Tenina's blog. Error number 1, I left the cocoa out so it's a vanilla cake. Error number 2, I greased the tin and put the mix in....and left the gasket for the base out.





My mind is sort of on other things. ( a funeral I have to attend next week....so young and devastating).
I think I will stick to ironing and housework for the rest of today.  ;D ;D
I will post a photo when I lever it out of the tin. DH suggested mushy laming tons. Kind boy he is.

I agree with no more cooking today Cookie, it's hard coming to terms with unexpected losses.

I did have a chuckle at your terminology though, calling a tin liner a gasket LOL - your connection to car enthusiasts is evident.

A trifle might be nice for dessert if your cake doesn't come out cleanly.

I wanted to make some lasagna sheets with the pasta maker. I grabbed the extruder and put it on. Put all the ingredients in and off it went. When the pasta began to come out I realised I had grabbed the fettuccine extruder. Guess who had a vegetable lasagna for dinner using fettuccine?  It still tasted lovely.

Boy am I silly!!!!!  I have doped myself up with hay fever medication as the easterly winds are really playing havoc with my eyes and nose. However that really isn't an excuse- I'm just using it as one.
I had made some tomato passata and had quite a few tomatoes left. Thermofun had a recipe for tomato paste so  I decided to try it. All went well and the paste tasted  lovely, I removed it and put it in a jug, then added a squirt of detergent to the jug to clean it. Wrong jug!  anyone want to try tomato paste that has been squirted with detergent. It has been cooking for 40 minutes and was getting  lovely and thick too.
That's what happens when you don't think!

Was this the recipe  (http://thermofun.com/thermofun-tomato-paste-recipe/)you used, Cookie (it doesn't say anything about adding detergent, so I am not sure if it is the right one - maybe you have started an innovative new trend there!).  My stupidity aside, is this the recipe you used?  It would be good to have a good tomate paste recipe.

Yes it  is Marina. I went back and bought some more cheap tomatoes and I'm going to try again tomorrow. I did need to cook it on Varoma for a while to thicken the paste. I made Passata from The Passionate Pantry too. (no detergent) I wasn't impressed with the colour as it seemed a bit orange, but the taste is lovely. I'm trying to do the  link but the computer doesn't like me.

Cookie, I am pleased to see that you can buy cheap tomatoes. The ones in Ballarat are still about $6 a kilo. We are getting just enough from the garden for eating. I have been able to get a few quick sale ones that I have been using in the Plum, A pile and Tomato  Sauce.

Most are around that price here too Chookie, these were quite soft, but perfect for what I wanted.

Can’t understand why they are so expensive.
Title: Re: Oops........................................... photos
Post by: cookie1 on February 07, 2018, 11:27:59 am
Me either Chookie. This little Italian shop had boxes of very red tomatoes cheaply today for making tomato paste. I picked up almost a kilo of lovely tomatoes for $2 there. I will certainly be going back.

We haven't had a good oops for a while, so here's mine - minus a photo. 

I was half way through cooking my favourite orange and almond cake today and took it out of the oven to pop some paper on the top as it was getting a bit too 'golden' on top and the whole cake tin slipped out of my hands!  The mixture went everywhere.  I was about to bin it when DH said, no, stir in some chia to bind it and put it back into the oven and see what happens.  So l salvaged what I could and put it back into the oven.  I am just about to take it out and it actually looks OK ... I will reserve judgement on how it tastes until a little later on.

I’m sure it will taste delicious. I love the crunch of chia in things.
Title: Re: Oops........................................... photos
Post by: judydawn on July 28, 2019, 12:08:03 am
I hope it works for you Marina, DH’s idea sounds feasible.
Title: Re: Oops........................................... photos
Post by: Cuilidh on July 28, 2019, 05:21:28 am
It actually turned out really well.  I would never have thought of using chia ... but there was no crunch, Cookie, there must have been quite a bit of moisture left in the mixture so the chia absorbed it all.

Well done to both of you. A new recipe created.

I thought I would make some biscuits this morning. I chose some Orange and Currant ones from Cookidoo.

However I misread the recipe or it wasn’t clear or something silly. I added a peeled, whole orange when it should have been the zest only. So instead of biscuits I made a sort of flattish cake thing, with crisp edges!  DH and DD tell me it tastes quite nice.

It looks good though cookie, did you serve it with custard or cream or did they eat it as is?
Title: Re: Oops........................................... photos
Post by: cookie1 on September 16, 2019, 08:35:43 am
They ate it as is Judy. Like a cake. 😀😀😀😀

An ineresting adaptation of a recipe, Cookie, but it looks really good.

Cookie, you have created a new dish.  Congratulations.

For an oops cooking moment Cookie it turned out well. Like Chookie said you created a new dish.

Here I am again! This time I followed the recipe exactly. It had 2 eggs and the whites of 2 eggs, so I thought they would be light cupcake type things.  However there was only a 1/4 cup flour and I think it should have been more. Or maybe it was me.
The dark things are sultanas. The mix wasn’t strong enough to hold them and they all fell to the bottom. A beautiful flavour of orange juice and zest but flops.

That's a shame, but at least they tasted good.

Ha ha cookie, fancy such a great cake maker having a disaster.  They’d be nice served with custard wouldn’t they?
Title: Re: Oops........................................... photos
Post by: achookwoman on March 08, 2020, 11:20:16 am
Wonder why the recipe had so little flour, must have been a typo.

Post by: cookie1 on May 08, 2020, 07:49:57 am
Oops again. I thought I would be smart and put the Olive and Parmesan bread into a casserole dish. The dish was far too small and the loaf didn’t cook right through. When I tried to turn it out I ended up with 2 bits. I put them back in the oven to finish cooking. For my photo in ‘what’s for dinner’ I plonked them back together.

Looks good to me, Cookie.  I am sure it goes without saying that it tasted good.

It satisfied everyone, crusty for DH and softer for DD and I.

The bread looks rustic and yummy Cookie. I love olive bread - I have made Dani Valents recipe in the past.
Title: Re: Oops........................................... photos

I might find that and give it a try. The olives and Parmesan in it were lovely.

Uni's bread rolls in under an hour.
Made these using Lauke multi grain bread mix. They turned out flat but tasted alright. After rereading Chookies bread tips and hints, I think I know where I went wrong. The last rise was to be 10 minutes but I got distracted and it was about half an hour. The rolls were huge. As soon as I put the wash on top they began sinking. They couldn't hold their shape, the structure wasn't right. Yeast & water to flour ratio? I'm sure someone will tell me if this is the case.
Title: Re: Oops........................................... photos
Post by: achookwoman on June 08, 2020, 10:49:11 pm
Michele, I think over proving was the problem.  Would need to look at recipe for ratio, but others have used this recipe with success.
Title: Re: Oops........................................... photos
Post by: mcmich on June 08, 2020, 11:09:21 pm
Thanks Chookie. I have made these rolls before with success but just using white bread flour not multigrain. Will try again. I'm really enjoying making bread.
Title: Re: Oops........................................... photos
Post by: achookwoman on June 09, 2020, 12:17:55 am
Michele, multigrain can take a little more water.

My third attempt at jam drops. Will give it another go but I'm  jam dropped out for now.
Title: Re: Oops........................................... photos
Post by: cookie1 on June 17, 2020, 09:39:32 am
They look fine to me Mich. I always make the hole in mine with the end of a wooden spoon dipped in flour, and I make it quite deep.
Title: Re: Oops........................................... photos
Post by: mcmich on June 19, 2020, 08:25:00 am
Maybe that is the trick. I make my holes with a spurtle (Scottish porridge stirrer). I mighten be making them deep enough. Onwards and upwards.
Title: Re: Oops........................................... photos

Michele, your Jam Drops look fine to me.  I used come Quince paste squares in some. My jam ones were very messy but tasted fine.

Taste is the important thing.

Whilst appearance helps aesthetically and it is rewarding to see a beautiful end product, it doesn't make any difference at all as soon as it gets bitten and chewed up so, as Cookie says, taste is the important thing.

We had a quiche tonight with a filling of roasted tomatoes and feta. I knew I had some short pastry in the freezer. I found it and used it for the quiche. As I was serving it, I nibbled on a bit of the pastry crust. I had used sweet, short pastry. Oh yuk. It just didn’t go. I was so cross with myself. It’s funny but tasted horrible.
Title: Re: Oops........................................... photos
Post by: judydawn on February 15, 2021, 11:55:39 am
I did that many years ago cookie, not a good match.  I hope you at least ate the quiche part of the dish.
Title: Re: Oops........................................... photos
Post by: cookie1 on February 16, 2021, 04:57:58 am
Yes Judy. No one else we touch it. So I have quiche filling for lunch for a couple of days.

Cookie, how disappointing. All not lost.   This is one reason why I love my chooks.  They don’t discriminate.

Post by: cookie1 on February 21, 2021, 02:00:16 am
I needed chooks eventually Chookie. I threw half of it out, and I hate waste.
