I first discovered Lucy’s blog Bake. Play. Smile when I was searching for Thermomix recipes on Pinterest. Lucy likes to bake and she posts delicious recipes that are both Thermomix and non-Thermomix. I baked her Malteser Bunny Chocolate Cupcakes for Eater. They turned out super cute and everybody loved them. I took a photo and published it on my Instagram account and tagged Lucy in the post. From then on, Lucy and I became social media friends and I started to stalked the poor girl on all of her social media networks lol.
I was lucky to meet Lucy in person at the ProBlogger Event this year along with a few other Thermomix Bloggers and we had a lovely chat about food, foursquare and baby prams. Then I asked her a few questions about her Thermomix.
Here is the interview:
When did you first get your Thermomix?
My hubby surprised me with a Thermomix for Christmas a couple of years ago. I’d been to a few demos and had fallen in love with them, but the cost just seemed huge. So, I was very lucky to get such a great Chrissy present!
You have a very generous hubby there!
Yep my hubby is amazing. We met when we were teenagers and he’s just the best guy.
How often do you use your Thermomix?
Hmm that’s a tricky one. Anything that is sweet! Probably my Creamy Lemon Crumble Bars – I really love them!!
What question do you get asked the most on your blog?
Whether or not I run cooking classes!! And no, at the moment, I don’t…. I just don’t have time! My focus is on Bake Play Smile and of course, the Thermomix dedicated website I co-own called ‘ThermoBliss’. I’m working on lots of different cooking eBooks at the moment and have also started mentoring other bloggers. So as much as I wish I had time for cooking classes (because it would be SO much fun… it’s just impossible at the moment).
What is your best advice for someone who just purchased a new Thermomix?
Have fun!! Just relax and enjoy it. Don’t look at whether a love the look of, and then figure out how you can use the Thermie to make it.
