Sentouchi Lemon Pie

Brand: Furuta Seika Found at: Bokkusu My friend Mackenzie is a picky eater. This would usually be a problem for me.

Dark Chocolate Chip Oat Biscuits

Brand: Nairn’s Cost: 99p Found at: Lidl   These are absolutely lovely! They are crunchy and grainy and hardy, but the dark chocolate makes them more like a chocolate chip cookie than multigrain crackers. I feel like the fanciest horse in the stable and I love it.   The only downside is that I recently... Continue Reading →

Feines Kleingeback Hazelnut Slice

Brand: Alpen Fest Cost: £1.50 Found at: Lidl   If Nutella on toast dressed up to go to a cocktail party, this is what it would look like.

It’s the kind of coffee you... Continue Reading →

Jaffa Cakes

I have always wished birthdays had themes the way anniversaries do. I’m thinking about this because I have recently had a birthday, and as much as I treasure the thoughtful gifts of others, I also want to do something to celebrate my anniversary with myself. It is my longest relationship, after all, and I feel... Continue Reading →

Lemon Scottish Shortbread Rounds

Brand: Morrison’s Cost: £1.60 Found at: Morrison’s   After three weeks, IKEA finally delivered my teapot. It was one of those objects that I thought I could live without but after a week I caved, realizing that I am indeed the kind of basic bitch that needed a teapot. I never have been very good...
