Brisbane Adventures: Part 2

It has been one week since the Brother and I have returned from a true Fizzle holiday. A couple tourist-y things (literally 2). Much kitchen-ing. Even more eating. A lot of chilling. Many naps. Some anime... Here is a list of our kitchen achievements with SFizzle (the few that we remembered to take pictures of):... Continue Reading →

Brisbane Adventures: Part 1

We are in the midst of our latest 3-Fizzle reunion. The Brother and I have journeyed Down Under (in the middle of term-time!) in an uncharacteristically spontaneous fashion. Basically one month ago I said hey why don’t we just leave for a while. And then he said yeah ok. And then we bought tickets to... Continue Reading →

Sleepy Babies

My babies. Aren’t they beeaauutiful? They like to nap together…though these are all kind of old pictures (but only relative to their baby lives). They are now 1 year and 4 months old. And the pictures are from when they were just 7/8 months old. I have a scarily precise virtual filing system for them.... Continue Reading →

Return of the Fizzles

519 days later and WE’RE BACK. Fizzles, we had resigned ourselves to witnessing the slow end of our food sharings as we have become four busy busy Fizzles. But no siree. We are too cool to be too busy. So we’re returning with food AND everything else that we like. (A fairly straightforward way of... Continue Reading →

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:... Continue Reading →

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... Continue Reading →

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... Continue Reading →

(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... Continue Reading →

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... Continue Reading →

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,... Continue Reading →
