Thought i would post this for anyone keen for AMAZING Pesto!!! Which of course tastes even better when its picked fresh that day from your own patch. I have used my Thermomix but a food processor will do the job just fine!! And im not too serious about the quantities.. use what you have, mix it up a bit..

We slather this all over fresh pasta frequently as it is abundant with an extra slug of EVOO, a pinch of good salt… and of course some fresh milled parmesan!! Now that just might be the perfect family dinner..

BASIL & SPINACH PESTO….

40 g fresh parmesan cubed

5 cloves garlic

150g pinenuts

200-250g basil leaves ( this is alot )

1/2 bunch english spinach

120g olive oil

put parmesan and garlic into Tm bowl grate 15 secs speed 8

add pine nuts grind 5 secs speed 7

put in basil & spinach and process on speed 6 until smooth using spatula to keep it moving. Once smooth turn to speed 4 and add olive oil into the mix in a slow stream through the lid until well combined.

TIPS… sometimes i use rocket or parsley to bulk it up if i havn’t got enough basil etc.. i have also used cashews and almonds instead of pinenuts. The almonds leave it a little chunkier!!

It will last about 3-4 weeks in an airtight container. If you want it to last longer you will need to add salt to the mix so it acts as a preservative xx

Enjoy

Knee Deep In Love..

Ok so im getting there!! 3 left in the top 5.  drum roll please…

KNEE DEEP WINES.

This little unassuming place has completely won the hearts of this Dunsborough tribe. Another magical combination that most will agree is hard to find.

Its one thing to get the wine right and another to come up with some stunning food… But you know you are onto something when you find a place that has it all going on and doing it soooooooo much better than anyone else!! These guys have got an act… And we just cant get enough.

Every time we wander in, we just feel so comfy and warm and happy.. and very rosy when we walk out!!!

pssst…. the reserve cab sav is to die for!! It just lays in your mouth like a warm wind and ruffles you up like your’e  on a first date.. and the food.. well….

enjoy these pics…

Thermo Lovin!!!!

Wow…. Where have i been??? Its been cold and wet and altogether uninspiring to be truthful.. But a new love has entered my life and it sees a new beginning!!

My new venture for 2011 (serious venture!!) is joining the amazing Thermomix team in Dunsborough. I am so thrilled that i think i have found the exact type of work i have been looking for.  2 days of training coming up and i’m away.

Of course ive been putting my new Thermo through its paces at home for over a month now and let me tell you there is only one reason im joining that company… cos its bloody AMAZING!!! I now have full control over what goes into all my food.. No more pre-prepared preservative filled rubbish for me!!!

So im sharing a few snaps of my morning at home with Harper (who is also lovin the new thermo)..

And amongst other things we also made our own butter this morning in around 2 mins…. JOY!!!!
