As far as dinners in the thermomix go I don't really follow their recipes, I just find something that is similar and use the time and speed as my guide for cooking the same meals I used to make before the Thermomix. It works well and saves me a bunch of time!!
Pesca we are a family of 5 and we are big eaters, especially DH and I but I find I can cook an adequate amount of food for all of us for one night in the thermomix. I make my soups on the stove too because I like soups tolast for two dinners and what it makes in the thermomix gives us one night.
