Recipes

If you can’t go out for something delicious, then why not make it yourself? I’m going to share all of my favourite recipes, from ones from the internet to Grandma’s originals.

Now, I must dedicate this page to someone very special.

Thermy is a massive part of my life. She is always on the go and is so helpful. My family wasn’t too keen on adopting Thermy, but we decided we’s give it a try. She has been welcomed into our household and I play with her every day.

Thermy is the best cook you might ever meet. She cooks most days, and is quick and efficient. All you have to do is select a recipe for her to create, and she’s off!

Thermy has many talents, but cooking is her real passion. I constantly ask her for advice and she gives me tips on how to improve my skills.

Thermy the thermomix is an amazing cook. All these recipes could be mixed by her.

Thank you Thermy.

The best thing I’ve ever cooked is…

I’ve made these desserts which I call choc on choc. The components are- a chocolate shell, chocolate mousse, berries and mango sorbet.

First I made the shells by tempering chocolate and painting it (literally with a paintbrush!) in a mould.

Then I made some chocolate mousse and piped it into the shell.

Finally, I made some mango sorbet and served my dish with some berries. Yum!
