Peta has recently released a mini-cookbook called Ready. Steady. Lunch! which has sold out not once, but twice! You can currently get an eBook version, or preorder a hard copy, from her online store.

Here are some cool tips from this podcast… 

  • Love fresh muffins? Freeze the muffin batter in muffin cases and once frozen transfer to a ziplock bag. Cook in the oven when you want a fresh muffin!
  • Making pikelets? If you are low on time you can cook them in the oven instead of on a pan! So much quicker!
  • Listen up to Episode 34 of the podcast for Thermomix Lunch Box Ideas.
