Carob Muesli Bars

I know this isn’t the most healthy alternative of muesli bars, but it’s great for a special treat or even cut into little squares for a party. My kids have grown up not eating commercial muesli bars since they are not failsafe, and in the past when I have tried to make something like them or made […]

Maple Steamed Puddings in the Varoma

Chicken Enchilada’s

A failsafe recipe for my non-thermomix owners. Yes, I actually did this the traditional way!  This is the main meal I served for dinner to go with the Honeycomb Cheesecake. Even though we had guests, I broke all the rules and cooked 2 meals I had never made before and I had fun creating. So […]

Honeycomb Cheesecake

I am not a big cheesecake fan, but my dad is! So since they were coming over for dinner, I thought I would have a go at making my first cheesecake, especially when I had a bag of failsafe honeycomb that I thought would be lovely crushed through it, and it was! 250g biscuits (I […]

“Lemon” Tempura Chicken – Failsafe

This is my “claytons” lemon chicken, the lemon chicken you are having when you are not having lemon. I wanted to re-create the lovely thick rich Chinese style lemon sauce and make it failsafe.  This gluten free Thermomix tempura batter is just lovely and light, a perfect match for this sauce. I have been making […]
