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…

(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: 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: 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…

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…
