Teacher’s gifts done ✅ Gluten free Gingerbread Cookies from ‘Good Food Gluten Free’ and a little something luxurious for some self care. Some of the gingerbread guys have broken limbs.. should’ve added candy canes to make it look intentional 😂 🤕 👨⚕️ 🚑 🎅 🎄
Between work, more work and picking up the small child from school, I was stoked to have found an entire batch of @skinnymixer’s Butter Chicken in the freezer. It was Paleo until I made rice to go with it 🤔 #offthewagon
S’mores Cupcakes. 30 of them! We have a busy weekend ahead and I needed to get the baking done today. Easy as! The last time I made these, they were devoured so quickly and so this time, I made extras to keep in the freezer. We’ll see how the marshmallow frosting thaws out over the weekend 😋My piping skills are seriously shocking!
So today I took the small child some banana bread as an after school snack from @theleanbeancafe in Osborne Park. I was hoping she’d share it with me and after a lot of pleading and playing nice, I managed to get one single mouse bite 😳 she’s her mother’s daughter, that’s for sure. When it’s that good, we *may* be convinced to share. The minute we got home, we baked or own loaf. This is the Banana Bread recipe from The Basic Cookbook, with our addition of dates, blueberries and cinnamon. This will last ages in the freezer for lunchbox or anytime snacks. Yum!
Last night’s dessert. Very similar to the Middle Eastern recipe I grew up with. I added rose water and it was superb. The recipe can be found in the ‘Postcards from Greece’ book in Cookidoo. It has made its way into my ‘desserts’ playlist on my Cook Key 👌🏼
Rather than boiling these vines leaves before stuffing and rolling them, I poured hot water into the Thermoserver and let them soften for 30 minutes or so, while I cleaned and stuffed the zucchini’s. So many uses for this one awesome dish. How do you use your Thermoserver?
The small child has a school disco tomorrow evening and of course, I’d never turn down an opportunity to make food to share. ‘Healthy Chocolate Mousse’ from @louisekeats book Sweet Nourish and ‘Eat Your Veggie Gardens’ from Thermomix’s Hip Hip... Hooray! Nut free, super easy and perfect for children’s events
I took my Paleo Peach and Pear Crumble and changed it up with mango, as I don’t have pears at he moment. Served with a dollop of coconut yoghurt and a little sprinkle of cinnamon. Very tasty! It’ll be nice served chilled later on after dinner. My recipe can be found in the Thermomix Recipe Community https://www.recipecommunity.com.au/baking-sweet-recipes/paleo-peach-pear-crumble/gbfdful3-42dae-802153-cfcd2-niul6k0n
I get perfect rice, every time, in both the Thermomix TM31 and the TM5. 300-350g rice in the simmering basket, 1L water in the bowl, 12 minutes, Varoma and speed 4 (mc on). I then let the rice sit in a Thermoserver for a few minutes while I gather the troops for dinner and it ends up light and fluffy every time.
Lunch box friendly and they taste like coconut rough! This is @wholefoodsimply’s ‘no blend nut-free bliss balls’ and I can already see that I’ll be making quadruple batches of it at a time. I adapted the recipe and it literally took three steps. Add, blend (despite the name ‘no blend’) and roll. Is it bad that I’ve eaten 5 before dinner? Nope. It’s nothing but healthy ingredients and well, as they say, yolo!🤷🏻♀️
Basic Berry Muffins from @louisekeats ‘Sweet Nourish’. I love this recipe. It’s healthy, plus, I can use up some of the 2kg of mulberries we picked off of the neighbour’s tree that hangs over our fence. As the small child would say - ‘yumbo!’
I haven’t been sharing a lot of of the food I’ve made lately, as I’ve had about 478282929 things on the go all at once. I would love to give a shout out to these guys though, over at @baked180 in Girrawheen. It’s a tiny, yet lovely little cupcake and coffee shop and I love that their menu changes with the seasons! I will miss the hibiscus cupcakes until next winter though 🌸🌺🌸
