Avocado Smoothie

It’s as good as milkshake, and it’s hardly even a recipe. In true Fizzle style this should be avocados, condensed milk and milk/water, all blended, but because I’m insanely lazy and sugar is more accessible since it’s not in a can, I went with that instead of the condensed milk. Milk quantity depends on your…

Mini Oreo Cheesecake

THREE test matches on a Sunday. Ok so South Africa may have lost, and Pakistan are flailing a bit, and we’ve got 2 injured brownies in the England team, but everything is fine. Except when I took a study break (meaning a break from cricket in order to study) and I missed 3 wickets. Everything…

Nutella-ish Pudding

Ah Nutella. It wasn’t so long ago that I resolved a lengthy conflict with an old friend, and shared my tale of heartbreak and happy endings. Nutella has since rejoined me in my quest to rule the galaxy like: Now today I wasn’t actually thinking of Nutella. I just wanted food. These days I’m generally…

Chuti Chocolate Cheesecake

Note: Chuti = Small (in the Motherland) There’s nothing quite like a Midnight snack at 10pm in preparation for a Midnight movie at 11pm, don’t you think? Due to it being Midnight and all, best if the snack is teensy and easily preppable. And so with a spoonful of melted dark chocolate, a spoonful of…

1 Minute Cookie Pancake

It looks like minimal effort snacks have become a lifestyle for me because children are EXHAUSTING. I couldn’t even stay awake for New Zealand’s win over India. I tried, I really did. All I had to do was wait 3 more wickets…but I suppose if I had then I’d have had to face the daily…

Potato Mice

Here we have a mouse.  Not any kind of mouse,  a jacket potato mouse inspired by a recipe in an Annabel Karmel cookbook. We roasted some potatoes after generously painting the potato with olive oil-there were some very enthusiastic painters. We could have used our hands I guess, but we have a pink food brush…

Tuna salad

Following the advice of SFizzle,  here is a salad that can really have anything and tuna in it. The one we made had tuna,  lots of sweetcorn (very popular around here), tomatoes,  cucumber, lettuce,  olive oil, apple cider vinegar, salt,  pepper and smoked paprika. For more adventurous palates,  I add very finely chopped onions,  lentils,…

This Oat Craze

I feel directly responsible for causing the creation of an oat pide. I think the oatiness has gone out of hand. I apologise for starting it all. In order to contribute though,  here is our go-to oat breakfast. The recipe is flexible,  depending on one’s mood  and availability of ingredients. I find that I am…

Peas

While you bake lovely things to feed the Fizzles,  I bake bread and cook peas. Barley bread instructions coming up soon after Ramadan inshaaAllah. This is all Izzlet#2 wanted for dinner. And water with a straw. I think you can imagine my face right now. The other Izzlet and I made fish pie. It came…
