Ramadan Chronicles: Chocolatey Chocolate Muffins

DAY 21. wha- how? It’s that fourth dimension again. Being all predictable and surprising at the same time. (Kind of like Pakistan…) Anyway. We just ate the best home-made muffins ever. (Discovered here on Sally’s Baking Addiction.) Muffins are not my area of expertise so I didn’t mess with the recipe at all. Smart move AFizzle,…

Ramadan Chronicles: Quiche

Hello it’s quiche again. Been a while, hasn’t it? So I’m all done and back in Malaysia with the smallest Fizzle (That is to say, AFizzle); and the Fizzle parents. It’s about 10°K hotter than I am used to and people were bugging me about blogging inactivity (Me? Never). So I thought I might as…

Ramadan Chronicles: Banana Date Cake with Coconut Cream Cheese Frosting

First, let me just say: The Maathaaland* has DEFIED EXPECTATIONS and sent the Group B from Cricket Champions trophy tournament into mayhem by beating India. We are all properly gobsmacked at this turn of events. I heard even MamaFizzle was properly enthused. In the animal world, this would be like: Anyway, back to food. There…

Ramadan Chronicles: Cookie Butter

Is that a cookie? YES. Well, it used to be. You see, I needed cookies, so I made cookies, and then I ate cookies. But…there were too many cookies. *gasps* Too many cookies? You jest! Alas, tis the truth. It seems being the lone cookie consumer in a fasting household is a greater responsibility than…

Ramadan Chronicles: Banana Bread-Cake

WHO WANTS TO PLAY SOME SNAIL CRICKET! Look what Google Doodles did. I got bowled at 16. 😞 It’s ok, my baking is far better than my batting. And I made bread. Well, cake. But if it’s breakfast we’ll still call it bread. It did require some consultation: I even wrote down proportions this time:…

Ramadan Chronicles: Chocolate Peanut Butter

I don’t like peanuts. In fact I really don’t like peanuts, and I never have. But out of nowhere I suddenly keep discovering new peanut-y things that I really really like. The world is getting too confusing. I thought for sure that this meant I’d like peanut butter but nope. Still don’t get it. But…

Ramadan Chronicles: Cookie Bars

RAMADAN MUBARAK you little potatoes.* Look at us four fizzles, dispersed even in Ramadan. Tragic. It’s ok, I’m mentally in Southampton right now, which is close enough to you two UK bananas. Speaking of cricket, who’s excited for the champions trophy? I am I am. But that’s not for a week so for now I’m…

A Strawberry Birthday

On birthdays our only rule is Food, and our only food rule is Yummy Food. As SFizzle continues to grow in years and of course, Wisdom, I feel it my personal obligation to help her grow in size. Last year I set the bar problematically high. ^ This cake remains my biggest achievement in life….

Pan Pizzas

EVERYTHING IS OK NOW. Firstly, The Sage has made much progress re-integrating into the Fizzle household. A few simple jedi-mind tricks and she is now less frequently plagued by Bafflement. She now accepts her identity as Fromage Soeur, enthusiastically particpates in family excursions, and Papa Fizzle has even started registering some of what she says….

Smoked Salmon Mushroom Pasta @ The FizzleHQ

I am quite alarmed and aggrieved. I have discovered that in my absence from the Fizzle HQ, it has descended into chaos and pandemonium. A veritable amalgamation of disturbing happenings, unwise behavior and sinister patterns. I have discovered that now, AFizzle cleans the bathroom with enthusiasm. I am Truly Baffled. I will attempt to rectify…

Lemon Meringue Pie

SFizzle’s visit to Headquarters has begun. She has returned from Down Under fully equipped to prove MamaFizzle’s theory foolproof; marriage truly does transform one through a newfound wealth of wisdom. It is true, SFizzle is SFizzle no longer, she is The Sage. I admit this was wholly unexpected for me, there I was, thinking I would…

Behold: Smoothie

Do not underestimate THE POWER of the Smoothie. Me making smoothie: Smoothie context: Date syrup, coconut milk, nut butter, yogurt, frozen mixed berries, banana and of course, H2O Also optional, chia seeds, milk, and probably other (edible) things and fruits I haven’t thought of…YET STEP 1:   STEP 2:   STEP 3:   Bonus GIF:  …
