Apple Caramel Pavlova

Today is Mama Fizzle day. Mama Fizzle has a strange obsession with pavlova. Because she likes meringue but also I think it’s because she likes the ballerina story. Anyway, I tried. My proportions were really not worth remembering so I will spare you those details. The rest is great you should try it. Part 1:…

Cookie Dough Balls

It’s somebody’s birthday today. But she’s super old now so we won’t talk about it. Also, who doesn’t love cookie dough? Don’t answer that. So I made tons of cookies last week but mostly because I wanted to snack on cookie dough during the production process so this week I did the smart thing and…

White Chocolate Chip Brownies

Brownie Post #10. So I made this last week, following the miserable series of South Africa in England. The only consolation was that the one English brownie on the side got lots of extra medals. Still. England…you know? Happy baking was called for. Standard brownies didn’t seem dramatic enough, and also we had some white…

(Hershey’s) Chocolate Pie

HELLO I have a problem. It’s a Burger King problem, because fast food = bad but Burger King lures me in with Pi. Hershey’s Sundae Pie. It’s like a dream but sadder because you know it’s going to end. So this Hershey’s Pie has caused many a conundrum for me, and of course the best…

Ramadan Chronicles: Brownies Again

DAY TWENTY NINE Tis the final day of Ramadan and so It Is Time. To get cookin. Actually I didn’t do much at all. Brownies were requested of me (to accompany us to tomorrow’s Eid gathering) and so Brownies have materialised. This was a funny looking recipe that I went all out for and used…

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: 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….
