I’ve never been successful at making homemade mayonnaise until I got my thermomix, and it’s one thing I’ve missed eating given alot of shop brought mayo and aioli usually contains traces of dairy or corn am I’m not able to tolerate them.
I love my version of a traditional adobo recipe.
It’s so tasty and hearty. We mainly eat it in winter in the colder months, and it’s lovely to drink up the juice or to serve it with rice or mash vegetables so that it absorbs all of the goodness.
I find it incredibly fustrating that alot of the dairy free products on the market also contain corn products, or they have a ‘may contain dairy’ statement on them, so I still can’t tolerate them.
I can however get my hands on 2 different types of coconut based cheese which is not only gluten free and dairy free but also corn free with no may contain statements.
I’ve been making this extra citrus version for a while now, but really love to make my recipes quite a few times before I officially share and release them.
You will see from the different flavours of crinkle cookies that I love making them. Mainly because they taste amazing and because they are gluten, dairy and corn free. They are also quick and easy to make up if your having last minute guests, or people pop in. I call them my slap happy macarons.
I have been making this fruit loaf for many years. I created it as an alternative to gluten free bread to have for breakfast, lunch or just as a sweet snack/treat.
It’s easy to adapt to make it taste slightly different each time as it depends on what dried fruit I have in my pantry or what I can get at the supermarkets. I mainly use cranberries, but sometimes when I see a dried mixed berry blend called ‘anti-oxidant blend’ I put that in it. I usually don’t make a special trip to the supermarket, so if I’ve only got currants or sultanas I use them in place of the cranberries.
I got so excited when I discovered one of my gorgeous friends and business partners, Tuyen, has 2 small kumquat trees. You see, I hadn’t seen a kumquat tree for many years. Glenn’s grandmother used to have one in her backyard in Cronulla, but that was many years ago.
Brazilian Cheese Puffs were one of the first things the lovely Mel from ThermoHead showed me how to make. Head over to Facebook and give Mel a like and follow but if instagram is more your thing, you will find her at Thermoheadmel.
Once Mel left me to my own device, and I started to use my thermomix on my own, I found that I couldn’t recreate the recipe. They were either raw or would stick to the pan, so I started tweaking the recipe til I came up with my own version.

I shared a while ago now Peanut Butter Cookies, which my kids love however as they both go to nut free schools they can’t take them to school. So, as a substitute I started making them as a lunchbox treat with tahini instead of peanut butter.
They are super quick, easy, tasty and made with just 4 ingredients.

I don’t like buying commercially brought cordial for my kids, but I still treat them to cordial that I make, so it’s still loaded with sugar but it’s a controlled sugar and I know that it’s got nothing artificial added like colours or flavours.
A friend of mine shared this recipe with me quite a while ago, and like many of my recipes from the past year or so, it’s been sitting there waiting to be released to the wide world. She always goes that extra mile when we catch up or when Bella visits to ensure that we have delicious gluten free treats. It’s so delightful! Continue reading Peanut Butter Cookies
