    My favourite is the buttermilk bread rolls from “For Food’s Sake”, so soft and beautiful. I’m also keen to make the brownies and have found the Crio Bru. Hmmm…that could be my Friday night sorted.

    I love Tenina’s Scented Shortbread biscuits. These are incredibly easy to make and very versatile. I use this recipe for a lot of different types of biscuits.
    I haven’t downloaded the e-book yet as I’ve just about used up my limit this month!

    Lisa 11 October 2012 at 11:16 pm (PERMALINK)

    Definitely the flavoured-sugar shortbreads from “For Food’s Sake”. They take literally 90 seconds to mix up…and then you have to entertain yourself for what seems like a lifetime as they bake for 30 minutes. However, well worth the wait, and they are my stand-by “holey moley, friends are coming over” baking.

    Lisa and Megan… I think you two talking about the same biscuits… pg 121 of For Food’s Sake? Yowzah, I’m sold! Gotta try me some of that sugary shortbread for the upcoming cookie season. (maybe I’ll mix up a batch of chili sugar!) I love recipes like this that are wide open for personal creative tweaking.

    I don’t have the privilege of having Tenina’s book (snif, not available in Ireland/UK and shippings from Australia are just too steep for me) but I have peeked at a few of her videos and the latest one with the homemade chocolates has to be my fav’.

    Karine 12 October 2012 at 9:59 am (PERMALINK)

    What a wonderful idea, an ebook with recipes for the Thermomix, no shipping, instant fun!. I’ve got my thermomix only since a couple of months, but I use it everyday…. wish I had known it years ago!
    While the rest of the family would love sweet dishes, I’m the one who likes savoury the most. But choosing one tenina recipe would be impossible for me…….umami paste, moc rice, advocaat, lebanese toum, they are all so good!

    ThermomixBlogger Helene 12 October 2012 at 11:01 am (PERMALINK)

    Thanks Karine – I think you’ll find that you use Thermomix more and more each day as time goes on. I also think Umami paste might be my fave Tenina recipe.. or at least for sure the one I’ve done the most often ;-) I think some of the other ‘favourites’ you mentioned might be my recipes though… Here’s that Mock Rice, and the mock Advocaat, and the Toum!

    ThermomixBlogger Helene 12 October 2012 at 8:09 pm (PERMALINK)

    Dear New Comer — Well, about that diet…. I suggest you go crazy making all the yummiest things you find all over this blog and in Tenina’s recipe books. The secret is to SHARE the goodiness. Make and distribute before taking a bite! That way, if you send it out to others, you will eat less. I have struggled with this too and I can say, sharing is more fun than dieting ;-)

    It’s hard to pick a favourite as there are so many I really like but for today, I’ll pick “Chicken Salad with Vietnamese Dressing” from Dinner Spinner.

    Robert McGovern 14 October 2012 at 4:06 pm (PERMALINK)

    (First I’m not entering, I already have the ebook)

    My fav Tenina recipe, and I think in part it’s because it was my first introduction to her, is her Chocolate Ice-Cream http://tenina.com/2008/06/all-scream-for-icecream/ it’s scrummy and I say that as someone who isn’t that fussed on having desert. (More a savory person, starters at a Chinese or Indian are deadly for me)

    Author
  51. avatar
    ThermomixBlogger Helene 14 October 2012 at 4:59 pm (PERMALINK)

    Right on Robert and Juanita! That chocolate ice cream is one I’ve not tried yet, because I’m in the same camp as Robert when it comes to savoury vs sweet. But then again, chocolate has had it’s way with me in the past, so there’s definitely room for more chocolate in my world. Thanks for your input.

    I do love a good dessert but trying to watch the waistline at the moment. I must say that I tried Tenina’s Slow Cooked Beef Chilli and it was a huge hit all round. I even had my kids eating it (red kidney beens and all). This is one to add to the favourites list.
    Thanks Tenina.
