Real Food Recipes

Here you will eventually find a stack of real food (tried and true!) recipes.  They’ll  be easy to follow with step by step photos.  It will make real food preparation a realistc goal in your kitchen!!

I will admit, that I am a HUGE Thermomix fan (if you don’t know what it is, see this link ).  I  use it MANY times a day so many of the recipes I share are designed for the thermomix, HOWEVER, they can be easily adapted.

My Thermomix helps make real food preparation a breeze!   It mills grains and spices (so I don’t need a milling machine), it whips and mixes (so I can make butter and pavlova and cakes and I don’t need a food processor), it chops and grates (so it saves me time! think coleslaw and pizza toppings/cheese in seconds!!), it stirs and cooks my Thai Chicken Curry and our porridge and rissottos (so I can bath the children and dinner does not need attention or burn!), it kneads my bread dough (which I bake every other day), it helps me make sorbet and icecreams with real ingredients… and it saves us so much on our grocery bill each week.  I do rave about it, but it’s true!!

Here is a few of the recipes on my blog already…

… A few people want the Water Kefir Recipe that I use … I was given a copy of this recipe from a friend of a friend, who’s friend !! writes a blog at the ‘Health Kitchen’ ( ) … so thank you friend, my children LOVE their probiotic ‘ginger beer’… everybody loves it… I did read somewhere that water kefir grains WERE the original ginger beer plant … it makes sense, and if my husband and kids and friends all drink it and love it and it tastes like ginger beer AND it’s healthy, then I don’t mind what it is or where it came from!  Here is the recipe.. and YES, I now do the egg shell – Abbey calls it the ‘secret ingredient’!!! (it takes just a few seconds in my Thermomix to grind up the dried egg shell!)

  1. With havin so much content do you ever run into any prmeobls of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any ways to help reduce content from being ripped off? I’d really appreciate it.

    1. I don’t think you can control it really. I always ensure that I report the source / have a link to the source when I am quoting someone’s information or blog content. If we all do our bit and give credit to the people who we get ideas/recipes/information from the web would be a better place!
