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….

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…

Chocolate Biscuit Pudding 2.0

As another edition in swiftly-producable-desserts for the busy alooheads out there, here is the lazy solo version of our Sri Lankan pride (Or find the authentic version all the way over here, as described by SFizzle). One thing to understand about Sri Lankan recipes is that they favour a specific kind of crumbly substance; it…

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…

Homemade Snickers

There’s no day like a lazy day. And there’s a right way to spend a lazy day. It involves test cricket and a kitchen. Preferably within close proximity to each other. If the actual grounds are overseas, a TV will do. It’s worth noting that cricket is a good occasion to make something annoyingly time…

Hazelnut Cream

I’m phlegmy. Just putting that out there. So everyone knows. Chill, that’s not why the food is green. Though that would be funny. So speaking of phlegm, here is how to be productive while being sick: Sleep. Also, watch a movie. Or several. Both these acts will accelerate the recovery process, and thus minimize negative…

Avocado Kiwi Ice Cream

(The Avocado Chronicles: Part 3 of 3. See Strawberry Avocado Mousse and Egg Avocado Sandwiches (ft. Tuna Avocado Sandwiches) for more Avocado discoveries.) Who. Doesn’t. Love. Ice Cream. AFizzle, this may be for you. Dairy free Ice Cream! (if you can bring yourself to try an avocado recipe without chocolate) ShFizzle and Izzlet1, this is…

Strawberry Avocado Mousse

(The Avocado Chronicles: Part 2 of 3. See Egg Avocado Sandwiches (ft. Tuna Avocado Sandwiches) and Avocado Kiwi Ice Cream for more Avocado goodness) Ok, so this needs some explanation. I love strawberries. I love strawberries. So much. Anyway, my love for sweetened strawberries cannot be described in mere words. And the sorrow I feel…

(Sri Lankan) Chocolate Biscuit Pudding

Warning: This post has been Sri Lankan-ified. See Glossary below for translations. Do not approach this dessert if you are hungry  Bada Guini. Upon the first bite of this very easy, no-bake, unconventional traditional food, I remembered why I loved this as a kid. Upon the fifth bite, I remembered why i stopped making it….

Chocolate Almond-Butter Balls

WHO’S EXCITED? Tis the eve of Eid, Mama Fizzle is walking around saying Takbir, there’s very audible neighbourhood karaoke going on outside coz it’s the Mid-Autumn Festival in a few days, we’re all fasting and hungry and the kitchen is bustling with Eid preparations. Sounds like a party to me. So, time to Eid-ify our…

Avocado Chocolate Mousse

I hear Canada is full of mousse. Sounds like a cool place. I like moose very much but I also can’t really eat much cream. Moose don’t eat cream either. However this isn’t a problem for moose, but I on the other hand needed to find cream alternatives. While I’ve been obstructed by certain prejudices…
