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:  …

Bolognese

An Ode to Bolognese by SFizzle “O Bolognese You are like a better version of noodles (interruption by me: I used penne…) …You are not noodles But you are covered in red goo Delicious red goo” Yep she’s my true muse. Bolognese makes me happy. I recently discovered it works really well with baked potatoes…

Kaju Fudge…or Blondies?

CRICKET WITHDRAWALS It’s not as if there’s no cricket, there’s plenty of cricket but tis not for my viewing because we don’t have a cricket channel anymore. Amla just got a fifty and I missed it. This is why we make yummy food. To distract us from not being able to see Amla batting. So,…

Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon. Swiiirrlyyy Cinnamon. Now I’m a big cinnamon fan but recipes for cinnamon rolls have always looked intimidatingly time-consuming for me, until I found this on All Recipes. The claim was 90 minutes and I’m sure I took longer but the point is that it could have taken me 90 minutes. Very exciting stuff. For…

Apple Cheesecake Cobbler

I’ve come to the understanding that any dessert with cream cheese in it warrants adding ‘cheesecake’ to its name. So there. This is one of those idea-recipes that should never be followed exactly and should instead inspire superior imitations. Does everyone know what cobbler is? Because I didn’t. I knew it had something to do…

Flourless Brownies

Hello hello hello, tis time for a new brownie post, amiright? But first, life update: Malaysia is full of food and so this is us at the new Fizzle HQ all the time. It’s not a problem yet but I expect it will be soon. So as a preemptive measure, I have found my way…

Sweet Potato with Chicken

I wanted a self-explanatory title, okay? The Sweet Potatoes living in the fridge were many. And there was only so much Sweet Potato soup one can put in one’s belly before one’s belly becomes a sweet potato. And that would just mess with one’s digestive system. So Mr. Kizzle requested sweet potato with chicken. So…
