Definitely 10 second coconut bread and sprinkle the top with frozen raspberries or strawberries.
My family loves this dish - http://skinnymixers....ages-thermomix/
A risotto. Use the basic one and add whatever you want when is says to add mushrooms. Our fav is pumpkin, spinach and bacon. Add the bacon with the onion, the pumpkin cubes when the mushrooms should go in and mix the spinach through when its done.

The Sticky Date Pudding.
I don't care if you think you don't like Sticky Date Pudding. You will like this one!

Quirky Jo's Creamy Brown Rice Soup is easy, healthy and yummy. I don't like the stock concentrates so use home made chicken stock instead of water.
Choc Ripple Cookies this is so easy and the kids like to use it to make the logs - you know, sandwhiched with cream.
I think how easy fresh, home made custard was to make is what sold DH on the TMX. I would make chocolate versions and store in those individual Tupperware containers for the kids' lunch boxes. I'd add some fruit and once chilled is very similar to YoGo.
Scones are dead easy. I would whip the cream first and transfer that to a bowl in the fridge. Then make the scone mix without cleaning the bowl, just reduce the milk quantity by a smidge.
Eggs benedict with slow cooked eggs (60C for 40 mins) and then whip up a hollandaise sauce. Yum.
If you have enough time, marshmallows are a big hit here. The favourite flavours are chocolate and passion fruit. Nothing more decadent on a cold day than a rich hot chocolate with home made chocolate marshmallows.
If you're a tuna fan, I have made my own confit tuna by cooking trimmed pieces of fresh tuna on a low heat in olive oil. It is perfect for a Niçoise salad and stores well in the fridge covered in the oil.
If you can't eat too much in one weekend, any of the cookie doughs you can make and freeze in logs, wrap in Gladbake and then foil. When you want some, just slice off a few rounds and bake fresh.
Lemon curd is so easy and there's little risk of it curdling or going lumpy. Just give it a little blitz and all is smooth.
I don't use my TMX all the time but it is a useful tool in my kitchen.

Leave the honey out of the butter chicken!!!
I'm about to make skinnymixers bacon and veg soup (it's like minestrone) http://skinnymixers....vegetable-soup/
And this is a good plain risotto http://www.forumther...hp?topic=7648.0 it's adapted from jamie oliver. I usually fry up bacon, mushrooms, asparagus, whatever and put in individual bowls for people to serve themselves.
Oh and skinnymixers rustic shepherds pie with cauliflower mash (the link to the mash is on the shepherds pie page)

The Skinnymixers pork belly with caramelised apple sauce is divine!
Love making custards too, such as Quirky's coconut caramel custard. There are so many good custard recipes out there though if that's your thing (choc mint, mmm).

I think the butter chicken is probably not a beginner meal given its eleventy billion ingredients. I spent so much money when I first got mine on herbs, spices and condiments. All worth it of course.
Recipe community is the thermomix database. Search for a favourite meal and see if anything comes up.
That is one easiest risottos I've ever made.
