Raspberry Tarts

Brand: Morton’s Rolls Cost: £2 Found At: Morrison’s Even as an American, my pancreas has never had to work so hard.

Smoked Bacon and Cheese Pies

Brand: Morrison’s Cost: £1.30 Found at: Morrison’s Salt, fat, and pastry. At various points in my young, female life, I’ve cut one or all of these things out of my life. Out of curiosity, boredom, self-righteousness, or good old-fashioned body dysmorphia, I have tried just about every elimination diet out there. I’ve been vegan, I’ve... Continue Reading →

Egg and Cress Sandwich

Brand: Tesco Cost: £1 Found at: Tesco   There has been nothing more wonderful during this time of quarantine than eating a sandwich that I did not make. I know that I am being ungrateful – I love to cook and I love that I now have time to cook. Like so many others, I’ve... Continue Reading →

Heinz Beanz

Brand: Heinz Cost: 85p Found at: Sainsbury’s   I don’t know what it is, but during this lockdown, all I want to watch are Westerns.

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 got a fancy German name, gold-colored packaging, and a jaunty parallelogram shape, but I know a classic, hometown snack when I taste one. It reminds me... Continue Reading →

Digestive Thins Dark Chocolate

Brand: McVittie’s Cost: 99p Found at: Lidl   There are days when I need love. There are days when I need fulfillment. And then there are days when I need to eat a box of chocolate digestives in bed. Let’s just call it “self-care” and say no more about it.   Clearly, these thin chocolate... Continue Reading →
