Questions? Technical Issues? The Survival Guide / Re: My bowl

I asked Grace last week and steel wool is fine to use in the bowl :)
Now they tell us ??? ??? ??? We've all been so careful not to use anything scratchy on our bowls and all along we could have been using steel wool?  I use the non-scratch scouring pad and find that does the job.

Recipe Requests / Re: Poached eggs

There is a recipe in the Full Steam Ahead for eggs en cocotte (if JD can reproduce it - please)

Have done - it is in the Breakfast section

« on: August 03, 2009, 02:01:29 am »
50g gruyere cheese
40g butter
200g spinach, fresh
pinch salt, plus some extra
700g water
4 eggs, at room temperature
pepper, to taste
100g bread, toasted, cut into fingers

Place gruyere cheese into mixing bowl, chop 4 sec/speed 5, transfer into a bowl and set aside.
Place 30g butter, spinach and salt into mixing bowl, cook 10 mins/reverse/speed 1 with inclined measuring cup.  Remove and set aside.
Place water into mixing bowl, heat 6 min/100oc/speed 1.  While cooking, divide spinach into 4 small buttered aluminium moulds and sprinkle gruyere cheese on top.  Break open eggs, place one into each mould and season with salt and pepper to taste.  Place moulds into varoma receptacle.
Place varoma into position, steam 8min/varoma/speed1.
Serve eggs with bread fingers.
Variation - instead of spinach divide half of cheese into 4 buttered moulds.  Break open eggs & place one into each mould and season with a pinch of herb salt.  Place diced ham onto eggs around the egg yolk, sprinkle remaining cheese onto it and place into varoma receptacle.

From Full Steam Ahead cookbook.   I see no reason why you couldn't use ceramic pots instead of aluminium.

Hi & welcome back Bron.  Congratulations on your weight loss Bron - willpower and TMX (a good combination) ;) ;) Are you going to post that diet strawberry cheesecake for the rest of us?

Hi Sue, just do it as per instructions - time has been allowed for it to reach cooking temperature.

Ohhhh I just noticed - I've hit HERO status  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D 
That's pretty exciting!!! My heart skipped a beat, pulse raced, sweaty palms.....

(Or I need a life outside of TMX????) Nah!
I knew you'd do that whilst I was away for the weekendILB - glad you have joined us :D :D I think it is the passion for the TMX that earns us the stars but the TMX itself is the real star.

How did your cooking class go last night Kathryn?  Good luck with your new career in selling and demonstrating the TMX ;) ;)

Welcome eccles - you have done well with your first meal. Boy, you got rid of your other appliances pretty fast.  I gave my rice cooker to DIL but haven't given anything else away yet after 9 months. The breadmaker can go as soon as I find someone to give it to - I could never make a decent loaf in it anyway but I got it for $10 at a fete and it looked as though it had never been used (still does!!). Guess I will hang onto the food processor and mixmaster and other stuff just in case I have to send my TMX back for repairs one of these days - it sure works harder than any other applicance I've ever had.

Glad you're feeling better Judy. Have a lovely weekend.
Now I need to get my act into gear and post some recipes. I think I'll head off and bake some cookies and if they work out post the recipe. DH ate all the cookies we had while we were in Melbourne. I nearly froze over there and returned home last night to 3 or 4 degrees. We're just as bad!!!!  :-\ :-\ :-\
Thanks Cookie1 and I hope you and DD had a great time in Melbourne - told you it would be cold over there :D :D :D -  you have to go north if you want warmth at this time of the year or rug up and wear scarves, hats and coats like they do in Melbourne.

Nice call CP63.  I've recovered enough to spend our planned weekend in town for our anniversary this Fri & Sat night and when I return home on Sunday I will be looking to see how many new recipes have been posted  ;) ;) ;) Hope everyone rallies around and answers your call - good luck with your efforts everyone.

I read somewhere that the Strawberry Tart was disappointing - anyone tweaked that?  Is there a list of recipes from this calendar?

I voted early on in this poll but have just realised I didn't add a comment so here goes.  I read a recipe right through then write down the whole recipe to how I think it should be converted for the TMX. I can't seem to look at any recipes these days without my little mind doing conversions. When I start the cooking, I just follow my 'new recipe', re-adjusting and recording any changes to my times as I go. I then re-write the recipe which has become very messy at this stage and if it tastes good, come into my computer and let you all know about it  ;) ;) ;)
