Hi, I am new to TM. Actually hoping to get it this week! I have planned my menu out of festive flavours. Any tips for do ahead or timing what dish to cook when? Or is it the same for regular cooking?

Thanx. Ruth.


Sounds yummo!

I have only had my Thermie for a month so still finding my feet however for Christmas we will be having the following out of the Thermie:

- Herb and Pistachio dip

- Beetroot, Parmesan and Cashew dip

- Fruit and Nut Chocolate Fudge

- Red and Green Shortbread

and no doubt some strawberry daiquiri type drinks!

Oh think I might make some cupcakes too!

Everything else will be non thermie.

Have a lovely Christmas! Cooking 7
