Lemon and Coconut Bliss Balls - Lose Baby Weight
Here is a fun healthy eating snack idea that is packed with heart healthy coconut and the goodness of almonds.

Paprika Chicken with Creamy Paprika Sauce (an easy all-in-one Thermomix dinner) - Quirky Cooking
Last night I got home late after a busy day and didn’t have dinner organised, so it was ‘Thermomix to the rescue’ once again! I had a quick think, and this is what I came up with. Nothing fancy, just an easy and tasty dinner with basic ingredients, that took all of 25 minutes […]
Dairy Free Raw Chocolate - Quirky Cooking

Slow Poached Eggs and Hollandaise on the Thermomix – is it cheating?
A few weeks ago our washing machine broke. After 5 years the old fella decided to call it a day. My husband and I went shopping for a new one on a Sunday and were informed that someone would call on Monday to let us know when the delivery could be arranged. Monday came and…
Bek's Creamy Beef Curry
Who doesn't love a good tender beef curry? This came about one night when I fancied that old school curry flavour, threw some ingredients into the TMX and whamo! A beautiful, tender beef curry! All three of my kids loved this too and you can adjust the heat by the number of chillies you add to suit
