THERMOMIX | Garlic Prawn Risotto: aaaaaa-mazing!! From the EDC book. TIP: add some extra herbs and spices to your taste as I found the book version a little bland but I do love explosions of taste on my tongue! #spendlifeliving www.facebook.com/howtoSpendLifeLiving
Easy Entertaining | Freckle letters: put a thin layer of sprinkles in a tray. Melt some chocolate and put in a piping bag. Pipe your letters backwards so that when they go hard in the fridge and you turn them over they will be the right way. TIP: it may help you to write your letters on a piece of paper with black marker and then turn over and copy. #spendlifeliving www.facebook.com/howtoSpendLifeLiving!!
Easy finger food. Caprese kebabs. Bocconcine, cherry tomato, basil leaf drizzled with balsamic glaze! Soooo good. Be sure to make many as people come back for them again and again. #spendlifeliving www.facebook.com/howtoSpendLifeLiving!!
THERMOMIX | Mint slice balls: this recipe is so easy and very adaptable to your favourite dessert biscuit ie timtams. I have also covered these in chocolate before and made them into "cake pops". TIP: original recipe says 125g cheese but I found this too cheesey. Also do smaller balls as they are quite rich!! Very morish!! Www.facebook.com/howtospendlifeliving
THERMOMIX | 2 large mangos plus 30ml cream made 6 Popsicles. 800g bananas plus 30ml cream made 7 Popsicles. Love that these are mainly fruit with no added sugar. The cream is to give it a slightly more ice cream texture once frozen. Made these for a family weekend away and will update with their reactions. Didn't have a funnel to fill the zip pop bags so I cut the corner from a larger ziplock bag and used it like a pipe bag. UPDATE: 4 children tried them and 3 loved them…
LIVING MY BUCKET LIST: Tamarind Springs Day Spa in Koh Samui is heaven on Earth! We spent 6hrs here for about $170AUD. I would pay about $800 for that experience at home. Rock pools, sauna caves, 2hr massage and lunch! #no filter #spendlifeliving www.facebook.com/howtoSpendLifeLiving!! Photos taken by Jasmine Phillips
LIVING MY BUCKET LIST: Full Moon Party | Thailand. I was probably a bit old to go to this party at 31yrs old but we had the chance while in Koh Samui so a friend and I went across for the night. It is portrayed in the media as being a dangerous place so we decided to stay sober and just enjoy the experience! We had a great time and I would definitely recommend it as long as you stay safe!! #spendlifeliving www.facebook.com/howtoSpendLifeLiving!! Photos taken by Jasmine Phillips
LIVING MY BUCKET LIST : Beach Republic | Koh Samui Thailand. This place is amazing. The food and cocktails were great and even though we were there on a quiet night the atmosphere was still amazing. Highly recommended. #spendlifeliving www.facebook.com/howtoSpendLifeLiving!! Photos taken by Jasmine Phillips

THERMOMIX | recipe courtesy of the recipecommunity.com.au. This tasted so beautiful and had many positive comments at the event I took it to. TIP: It almost filled a 1litre container so cut recipe in half or could possibly freeze dip? #spendlifeliving http://www.facebook.com/howtoSpendLifeLiving!!
