Another newbie here from WA
« on: January 30, 2011, 08:50:11 am »
I have been lurking here for a few weeks, thought it time to come out of hiding and introduce myself.
My wonder DH surprised me with a TM for christmas. I saw them years ago and just couldnt justify one, a month or so before xmas I was at a friend of a friends house and she had one, and just happened to have some info so I  left it  lying around, and thats all it took. Whish I had it when the kids were still at home.
I have been having fun making lots of recipes and cant wait till I can stand of a long time to make more a (knee replacement just before xmas).
I tied making one of my old recipes chocolate slice in Thermie, but it was very crumbly, first time it has failed, do I need a adjust ingriedents in TM.
We call TM thermie, the lovely lady that sold DH TM came around when I was able to move around a bit and showed me how to use the TM, thats when all the fun started, DH is very impressed with it and has been cooking too. A few weeks ago we had a demo, everyone that was there loved the TM.
Sorry this has gone on a bit. If you get this far thanks for reading.
I child-proofed my house, but they still get in!

Hi jeninwa, welcome to the forum.  Glad you finally joined us so that you can tell us about your experiences with your thermie. How easy is it for you to get things you want if it only takes leaving a brochure hanging around.  Nice to hear DH is joining in the fun and I wish you a speedy recovery with your knee.

I've visited Tassie heaps and love the place. Hence the love of leatherwood. I think my first visit was in 1972.
I'm SOR here in Perth.

Welcome BG - lucky you for being the recipient of such a fantastic gift. You'll be able to let Thermie do some cooking and stirring now while you sit down and rest those hips. We hope you find this forum helpful and inspiring. We also look forward to trying out any converted recipes once you settle in  :) Here are some helpful hints when first starting out.
