Hooray for Zan’s Thermomix Meals

Apologies to other Thermomix bloggers
Sincere apologies to all the best Thermomix blogs and bloggers not mentioned here. Most have been in existence longer than Zan’s Thermomix Meals, and I do endeavor to review all these as time permits. But, today I feel it is important that Zan’s blog is seen and appreciated. I’ve been watching its development since the blog’s inception a few months ago, and as each day rolls into the next, I am more and more impressed with Zan’s unwavering dedication. Like Quirky Jo, Brazen, (and others!) Zan is a hard-working mother and dedicated Thermomix cook. There is much inspiration for family meals to be found in her daily reports. I hope we enjoy reading her blog for years to come.

About this Thermomix blog
Blogger Zan is a busy mother of three in Sydney. We know she’s busy because she also runs another blog and online store for her hand-dyed, hand-knitted craft items. Certainly that alone is enough to keep a mother busy as can be, but no. Despite these other priorities (or maybe because of them…) Zan has recently undertaken to blogging a personal online diary of Thermomix meals made at home.

If you think this sounds like an easy task, please reconsider and line up behind me to bow down before this woman. Maintaining a daily blog that provides its readers with consistent, reliable reports is no small feat.  I know, because I tried it and gave up. The Bimby Kitchen Diary lasted about six months before I became exhausted by daily updates. You see, people who cook with Thermomix tend to use it a LOT. This makes for a LOT of diary updating. How does Zan do it? I have no idea except to imagine that she has a Bimby kitchen gnome of some kind who takes photos and hops around the keyboard while Zan enjoys meals with her family…

    Just seen this, thanks so much for the review!
    Before I got my TMX the one question I couldn’t answer was how much do people use it on a daily basis and over the long term. I loved reading the blogs with great recipes but really wanted to see and understand how it was used in a daily home environment, hence Thermomix Meals was born.
    Have had a couple of wavering moments, and when that happens the entries are a bit dull and point like but will try to keep this up.
    I also find it a useful resource when looking for recipes or tweaks that I have made.
