T is for my kitchen assistant …and a Tiffany box

A to Z challenge, thermomix

OK so there is no T there but those who know my baking blog know my Thermomix is a daily part of kitchen life. I am not a consultant for Thermomix ( I have tried but that’s another story!!) so this is not a sales hype. You can’t buy one yet in the US though Vorwerk are apparently working on it…..

If this is only one serious contender for T then what makes it such a great machine?

It weighs, grind, blends, mixes, whisks, kneads, steams, sautés….

It makes everything from bread to ice cream…sponges to beef curry….orange marmalade to creme patisserie

If you want to make your own non wheat flour, that’s easy. Or make icing sugar from granulated that’s done in a couple of seconds. Or pulverising spices like cardomen and cinnamon.

If you believe in ‘from scratch’ and worry about additives them the Thermomix is your little helper.

There is no machine which comes close in versatility. The vitamix is an impressive blender, soup maker but it is really a durable blender.

The TM5 which was released around September last year has a recipe book in the form of a chip. Just look up the recipe, follow the instructions on the touch screen and hey presto the ‘can’t cook won’t cook’ have no excuse but to make a perfect dish.

In response to Blogging from A to Z April Challenge

I couldn’t let the letter T go without linking to one of my first post on a very special cake. It wasn’t so difficult (apart from nailing the Tiffany colour) but everyone who was at the friend’s party still remembers it. The carrot cake recipe included there really is the ultimate in carrot cakes! You can find the recipe in the original post here Tiffany box birthday cake

Thank you so much you stopping by…

Have a great day and spread sone sweetness.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla http://vannillarock.wordpress.com If you have come as a baker my blog is http://vannillarock.com i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)
