The holidays are a dim, distant memory of the past for me now. It's very quiet in my house now, with both boys at school and the only upside is that I am getting a lot done! I've finally been able to get back into the kitchen and try out some new recipes. I've also been spending a lot of time learning about soaking and sprouting grains, lacto-fermentation and cultured dairy products. I'll share this with you, as the recipes evolve.
Later this month we'll see the return of Cook-A-Long with Brooke-A-Long
. The purpose of cook-a-long is always just to present you with a recipe you might not have tried before. It is there to encourage you to give it a go and increase your Thermomix repertoire. To begin with, I'm actually going to focus on some of the staples that I know a lot of people still buy - butter, jams, sauces etc.
As always, if you have any questions about recipes or your Thermomix, don't hesitate to give me a call or shoot off an email.

If you know someone who would like to see the Thermomix in action, or if you'd like to come along just to catch up, I'm hosting a Basic Home Demo
, 2nd March 2012
. A Home Demo is ideal for people who are just a bit curious about what the Thermomix does to come along to and find out just what our magic machine does.
I'm also hosting a Varoma Home Demo

. If you'd like to learn more about the steaming side of the Thermomix, come along and sample Berry Fruit Dream, Capsicum & Sundried Tomato Dip, Warm Chicken & Cous Cous Salad and Lemon Citrus Puddings.
If you'd like to come along to either demonstration, just contact me
to reserve a spot.
Looking for Part-Time Work?
As most of you know, I recently finished up in my part-time administrative position. I found that trying to balance that job, family life and my Thermomix work was far too much of a juggle. As more and more people purchase Thermomixes, word about them is spreading like wildfire and it's keeping consultants run off their feet. The reality for me was that Thermomix made more sense, both financially and for our lifestyle, than the other work did. I am able to schedule my Thermomix committments into times that suit my family and am working doing something I truly am enjoying. Every time I get feedback about how much the Thermomix has improved someone's life, I am so grateful that I played a part in that change.
As our distributor, Graze Mazur, said recently in Business Review Australia
, "All it is, is having the right product, the right approach, and the genuine customer care". Each month Thermomix runs Information Sessions which detail the ins and outs of starting a consultancy business, with absolutely no obligation or pressure to commit.
If you'd like to know more about how the Thermomix business works, or you know of someone who would be interested, please let me know
