Cleaning the Thermomix can make your kitchen smell good
There are various ways to clean your Thermomix, but one of the best ones include orange or lemon zest, then the juice. After that you can clean your Thermomix. You will realize that this will act as a deodorant for the entire house.
Upside down cakes
Storing cakes is a bit difficult. You probably noticed how hard it is to get them out of the container. However, this problem can be solved in a simple way. All you have to do is start storing your cakes upside down. This way, the lid will act like a tray and it will be very easy for you to get out your cake in an intact shape.
There are certain recipes that you enjoy and you make on a daily basis, therefore, you already know what ingredients you need. In this situation you can easily prepare ahead. Buy the ingredients that you need and place them in containers so that you will be able to use them right away when you need them.
The best thermomix recipes can be planned ahead and it is very simple to prepare the ingredients for them, whether we are talking about a smoothie, pizza, or even pasta. When the time comes, you just place them in the Thermomix.
Softening the butter
For certain recipes you might need soft butter, but it is hard to obtain that without melting it. One way to soften your butter is by boiling some water and then pouring it into a glass. Wait a couple of minutes until the glass is heated, then pour the water out and place the glass on top of the butter. You will have soft butter in no time.
If you are about to throw out some vegetables, you should think again. It is a better idea to create some paste with them and then freeze it for later. You never know when that might come in handy for a recipe.
It is always a good idea to create a plan for the entire week. Decide which meals you will eat that week and then create a shopping list. This way, you won’t end up buying more things that you need from the supermarket and it is a great way to make sure that the food you buy will be used.
