10 Minute Meal. Thermomix Okonomiyaki

by Dani

I had plans for a glorious meal tonight. Pork Siew Yuk, rice, vegetable stir fry. I’ve spent most of today salivating at the thought. Unfortunately, the pork did not defrost in time. In fact, I cannot recall the last time I saw a piece of meat defrost quite so slowly. As I type it is […]

Varoma. Chinese Chicken & Eggplant.

by Dani

I had a spectacularly long day at uni today, followed by picking up the kids from the various people I had begged favours from. So by the time we got home, it was much later than it should have been. I had dinner on the table precisely 20 minutes after I walked in the door. […]

Varoma. Steamed barramundi with soy/garlic/ginger sauce and julienne salad.

by Dani

Lil Miss had her sixth birthday party today. A lovely little affair at our favourite park. Lunch time parties tend to make me somewhat recalcitrant about cooking dinner. Entirely due to constant nibbling. Fortunately for the hungry men of the household, I was all set with a meal so light, delicious and quick to prepare […]

Man food. Beer and cheese nacho sauce

by Dani

This recipe for a happy man is very appliance versatile. The whole shebang can be done on the stovetop. It could be made between stove top and slow cooker, stove top and oven, in the thermomix, or in a combination of thermomix and slow cooker. No matter how you make it, it’s the perfect blend […]

Sticky rice lunch bites

by Dani

Delicious little morsels, perfect for finger food or piling into lunch boxes. Very bento friendly. Just in case you were wondering, the recent lack of photos is a gesture of disgust at the hideous lighting in my hideous house. Photography will resume when the house has been demolished. Which will happen soon should the universe […]

Steamed curry cakes

by Dani

These are an old favourite at the Kitchen Playground and frankly I’m surprised I haven’t blogged them before. They work equally well with chicken, pork or turkey mince. Steamed Curry Cakes 500g chicken, pork or turkey mince 250ml coconut cream 1/3 cup red, green or yellow curry paste* 1 egg 1/4 cup fish sauce 2 […]

Thermomix. Pear Slice

by Dani

This afternoon, I discovered a glut of pears needing to be used in the fruit bowl. I also needed an after school, pre-swimming snack for tomorrow. That is how this pear slice was born. It would be easy enough to make without the thermomix, just soften the butter first for easy reaming with the sugar […]

Chicken, Yoghurt & Burghul Soup with Lemon, Chilli & Coriander

by Dani

School holidays are upon us and I am taking great delight in being home long enough to play in the kitchen. There simply isn’t enough time for that during term anymore. Part of the fun is my annual cookbook and recipe cull. As I am hoping that a move will be on the cards within […]
