Baked Artichoke Dip


This artichoke dip from the new Festive Flavours cookbook and recipe chip is so amazing!

It is so easy to make with just a handful of ingredients. All you need is parmesan cheese, garlic, mayonnaise and marinated artichoke hearts. So if you haven’t made your own mayonnaise yet then this is the perfect time to.

After mixing all the ingredients in your Thermomix you just pour it into a baking dish and bake for 30 mins at 180 degrees. It’s that easy and it is definitely a people pleaser!

This simple recipe is that good it even features on the $50 Festive Flavour 3 Course Dinner for Six menu.

Chicken broth with angel hair pasta


 I felt like I was coming down with something this weekend and when I woke up this morning I knew I was sick. I have a throat infection so while I still have my appetite I also have a sore throat which limits my food choices.

So I thought I would finally try the Traditional Chicken Broth with Angel Hair Pasta from the Cooking for Me and You cookbook. Nothing soothes like a warm nourishing bowl of soup and this recipe was just what the doctor ordered :)

Any small cuts of chicken on the bone can be used in this recipe and any leftover broth can be used in risotto recipes in place of stock paste and water.

Pumpkin soup

IMG_4963Pumpkin soup is one of those of those healthy and satisfying meals that is great all year round but even better on these cold winter nights! It’s even easier to make when you use the Basic Cookbook recipe chip for guided cooking.

When I make pumpkin soup I love to use a combination of half pumpkin and half sweet potato to add more flavour but pumpkin soup is also a great opportunity to sneak some hidden veggies into those fussy eaters :)

What’s your favourite pumpkin soup?
