Cara Eisenpress and Phoebe Lapine are the bloggers behind Big Girls, Small Kitchen and Small Kitchen College. Their first cookbook, In the Small Kitchen is in stores now. It makes a great Christmas gift for all your foodie friends!
Despite its delicious, thirst-quenching bubbles and cool, appealing mouthfeel, seltzer can be dangerous. Really.
When Cara was a kid, her family kept the cartons of seltzer in the basement. She and her three sisters were terrified to go downstairs to refresh the kitchen’s supplies: there were ghosts in the basement! Or at least that’s what they believed.
In our first, small apartments, the danger came less from the basement storage (there was none), and more from the cost to our wallets—and to the environment. Each time we could convince ourselves to cart home a few bottles of seltzer, we regretted it. First, it was…

Hi all! I hope you are having a fantastic Friday! Last week, we asked you for some Halloween costume inspiration–but with a twist–your costumes had to be both homemade and eco-friendly. If you know Ms. Fizz, you know I love saving green and being green, just like SodaStream! I have to say, all of the entries were incredible. Check out the awesome costumes 1st Place Winner Freida Franchina decked out her boys in!
While the season of ghosts and ghouls may be behind us, there is still plenty more to look forward to! As the holiday season rolls around, it’s time to start thinking about gifts for your nearest and dearest. If SodaStream soda makers, flavor syrups, ice sticks, carbonators or cozies are on your list there are now even more places to find them!
You can now find SodaStream…

Today may not be Friday the 13th but it’s still pretty spooky! Today marks the beginning of Halloween weekend and I can’t wait to partake in some ghoulish fun! Don’t have a costume yet? Not to fret, Ms. Fizz—or should I say Morticia Fizz—is here to help!
DIY costumes are a great way to put the green in Halloween! By gathering up items you have sitting around your house, you can make a wide array of wildly creative costumes, while also saving money that would otherwise be spent on store-bought costumes. DIY costumes are also an incredible way to get your kids crafting. They will love the chance to be the creepy co-creator of their freakish frocks!
Here’s my list of 3 items you likely have sitting around your house and ways you canrepurpose them for trick-or-treat preparedness!

Guess what fizzers? October 22 is “Make a Difference Day!” This is the day when millions of Americans rally together to make a difference in the world. What better time to celebrate the amazing things that you and SodaStream have accomplished!
Last Spring, SodaStream launched the “One to One” campaign where $1 from every purchase was donated to The Water Project, to bring clean water to underserved communities in Africa. What’s truly amazing is that $1 can provide a person with clean water for an entire year! Needless to say your help went a long way! In addition, on World Water Day, SodaStream pledged to donate $0.25 for every Facebook ‘like.’ Through that campaign, you and SodaStream raised $1000. Awesome work guys!
All of this work has made a profound difference in people’s lives! SodaStream and The Water Project recently built 3 wells in…

Hello My forever fizzers! I Hope you had a fabulous week, I sure did! Wednesday I had the chance to attend The Luxury Review in New York City. The Luxury Review is an exclusive press event which showcases the ultimate in luxury goods from cars, to jewelry, to jets and gadgets! As you might imagine, I was thrilled to be there. I often caught myself daydreaming of sipping a pink fizz while riding in a brand-new Lamborghini!
What made the event even better was that a portion of the sales benefit The American Red Cross! Amidst an expo of diamonds and expensive wines, you might wonder what I was doing there (how rude!). All kidding aside, we were there as part of the eco luxury exhibit, demonstrating the ultimate in environmentally-friendly luxury items and boy did they love us! That night, thanks to my…
