Cooking class recipes from November 26 Class

It was great to meet everyone last night at the second Cookingjust4Me + You class. Again a full house.

Thank you to all those who came and  for your wonderful feedback. The buzz on the night was folks were keen to try my recipes for themselves. Number one was the Steamed Chicken with the green sauce and closely followed by the Spring Slaw.

The recipes are available here:Early Spring class recipes V6

I’ll be posting the stories behind the spring recipe collection over the coming weeks, with more pictures.

In the mean time I’d love to hear what  your favourite recipe in the collection is!

Happy cooking!

Update on Early Spring recipes

Just as I was thinking I had it all under control after the busyness of running my first cooking class and posting the recipes collection I remembered a little tweet I wanted to make to one of the recipes.

So I’m made the tweet to Savoury crumble topping recipes reducing  the 5 g dried porcini mushrooms to a few pieces of porcini mushrooms. I’ve change the document, which can be downloaded from here.

Early Spring class recipes V6 (it’s a large PDF file 17.8MB )

I’ve also put this new file on the earlier post.

Over to you for feedback now.

Early Spring recipes

What a night!  The first Cookingjust4Me+ you cooking class has happened.

And here are the recipes I shared with those who joined me at Prospect this evening.

Early Spring class recipes V6  (it a big file as I’ve added some pictures)

I’ll write more about the class and the stories behind this collection of recipes over the coming weeks for those who could not join me tonight.

For those at the class you know some of the stories and have tasted all the recipes.

What was your favourite?

Which ones will you make first?

The vote from the team of kitchen angels, who help me make the class possible, was green sauce in the savoury category and the coffee brûlée in the sweets. Happy to say the bread  also top a big thumbs up.

Please try these recipes in your kitchen and send me your stories and comments.

Oh, I mentioned at the class I’m dyslexic. Happy to correct any of my ooops with spelling, but just tell me gently.

Happy cooking!

October 22 cooking class is now full – bookings open for November 26

Thank you! There has been a very strong response to my announcement of the first Cookingjust4Me+You Cooking class. The October class is now fully booked!

I’m quite overwhelmed by the response as I still haven’t invited everyone I planned to and the class is full. It appears I’m not alone in seeking ideas and tips on how to prepare healthy and fast meals just for me. I must say it’s really heartwarming to know I’m not the only one fighting the why bother voice.

I can’t wait to meet everyone on Tuesday.

I’ll be running the same class again on November 26. Same details as October, except the date of course. If you missed out on October, I’d love to meet you in November.

For those not in Adelaide or can’t make a class I’ll be posting the recipes from the evening on the blog after the class. It will be my early spring collection of recipes.

I’d love your feedback, especially about my crumble pie. Sorry couldn’t resist a teaser about what I’ll be cooking on Tuesday evening.

Happy cooking!

Cooking classes 4Me + You

Cooking Classes 22 Oct and 26 Nov - Book now!

Exciting news!

I’m organising my first Cookingjust4Me cooking classes that will be showcasing recipes for those who cook for just themselves or maybe for two.

At the classes, on October 22 and November 26 at the Prospect Community Centre from 7.00-9.00 pm (booking details follow), I’ll be showing how to make a week’s worth of fast, healthy breakfasts, appetising dinners and some quick and interesting lunches.

Plus I’ve planned some delicious desserts, just for one. I’ll also  introduce you to a few of my ‘Flavour Friends’; tasty mixes or ingredients that add instant panache to everyday meals, in a healthy way.

As spring has sprung in South Australia, I’ll be featuring new season ingredients as the hero of many of my dishes.  The menu for the classes includes some wonderful vegetarian and gluten free dishes.

Most of the dishes are new recipes that I’ve been working on for the last few months but I will be making a few favourites from recipes already on my site.

My Thermomix will be working hard during the class as all recipes use this amazing kitchen appliance, that has changed my life for the better.

I’ve been long time preparing for these cooking class

What a twelve months it has been for me!

Since I did my short talk to my Thermomix group on the challenges and rewards of cooking just for me about this time last year, I started this blog, have written a little cookbook of Thermomix recipes for those who cook for one and two, have spent many hours (days) researching and testing recipes, become a volunteer in a CSIRO diet and lifestyle study, travelled to the Arctic Circle to see the Northern Lights and now I’m running my own special cooking classes.

What I’ve not done over the last few months is post on my blog. However stand by as I’ve lots of great ideas, tips and recipes to share with you in the next few months.

Meanwhile here are the details of my cooking classes.
