3 Nov

2 ingredient Muesli bars

Simple tasty and delicious. This batch made 16 bars in total and completely fine to freeze so great for making in advance for the kids lunch boxes


3 cups Muesli ( I didn’t have any at the time so combined a total of 3 cups of rolled oats, sultanas , dried apricots, unsalted peanuts, and coconut all roughly chopped sp 4 for 5 seconds in the Bellini)

1 can (395g) condensed milk

Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Line a lamington tin with baking paper.

Combine muesli and condensed milk in jug, speed 3 for 10 seconds

Press into the prepared tin and bake for 25 minutes or until the top has just begun to turn golden.

Remove from oven and let sit for about 10 minutes. Cut into bars and allow to cool completely. I have now frozen these for the kids in individual snap lock bags in the deep freezer, I simply pull out in the morning and by morning tea time they are ready for the kids to eat


Pizza pockets

30 Jun

I have been meaning to try these pizza pockets for a while now, and very glad I did. Although I will make a few adjustments next time. bread roll recipe click the bread roll recipe to get how I did the bread component to the pizza pockets.
Once bread is done I made the filling for the pizza pockets. You could use whatever your taste desires but we kept it simple and used ham & pineapple.
I chopped up 200 grams of deli ham, then chopped up sliced tin pineapple. Once done I placed it all in my Pyrex bowl, and simply added roughly half a jar of Legos pasta sauce. Again use whatever your sauce preference is.


Once the mixture is done break off balls of dough and roll it out into a small circle. This is the part I would adjust for next time , they were far too big and all but one ended up cracking and mix ended up rising to the outside of pockets.
Put about a tablespoon full of filling mix into the centre of rolled out dough, grate a little tasty cheese on top and roll into a ball.


Place on lined baking tray and cook in oven for roughly half an hour. Enjoy!!

Playdough bellini style

24 May

I have always struggled to make the cooked play dough variety, last attempt was roughly 2 years ago and it took me a good week to scrub my pot clean after it and the texture was awful. So here is my tried and tested version converted for the bellini. A few notes I made the pink dough first according to recipe and then doubled ingredients for the blue dough. A common question is what can I use in replacement for cream of tartar? I have heard that you can substitute it for lemon juice, if the recipe calls for 1 teaspoon of cream of tartar you would use 3 teaspoons of lemon juice.

Play dough (Bellini/Thermomix recipe – from the Bellini Addicts cookbook)

250g water
100g salt
1tbs cream of tartar
280g flour
15ml oil
Food colouring

Put the water, salt, food colouring and cream of tartar into the bowl. Heat for 5 minutes at 60 degrees, speed 3. Add flour and mix for 40 seconds or until mixture is combined and thick. Add oil and knead for 1 minute. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
