  • This sounds lovely,

    This sounds lovely, escpecially for a beginner like me..however....small things have been left out. What speed setting for the Thermomix? What temp is the oven to be on to cook with?...OK OK only small things, but for a beginner ALL things need to be stated. It defeats the point of having a 'user friendly, easy to follow' site if...well..its not tmrc_emoticons.~ Please please remember this when posting recipes and you will have a HUGE following of all level cooks. Thank you tmrc_emoticons.)
