Deep Dish Four Cheese Pizza

Brand: Chicago Town Cost: £1  Found at: Lidl The kitchen in our home is like an old-timey saloon: there is not enough room for both Emil and I. Part of this is the physical lay-out. The floor plan was designed for a single person living alone, and so squeezing both of us into the space... Continue Reading →

Eccles Cakes

Brand: Lancashire Eccles Cakes Ltd.  Cost: £1.80 Found at: Tesco As an American living in the UK, I keep running into place names that sound made-up. Newcastle upon Tyne, Blackpool, Ipswich, and Swansea all seem like they’ve been lifted wholesale from the novels of CS Lewis or JRR Tolkien. Asking people about their hometowns, I...

Scottish Raspberry Lollies

Brand: Morrison’s Cost: £2 Found at: Morrison’s I bought these because they were all natural but then was displeased when they were extremely pulpy. Honestly, that’s on me. I really should have known better. Nevertheless, it seems like these popsicles are more natural then they really need to be. As far as I can tell,... Continue Reading →

Mini Dessert with Dark Chocolate

Brand: Deluxe Cost: 85p Found at: Lidl This is a fairly standard little cup of chocolate mousse. It’s rich and creamy and has a little bit of chocolate crumble at the bottom – honestly, what more could you ask for? But what sets this apart from all the other pudding cups in the dessert isle...

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. This is easily one of the sweetest things I have ever eaten in my life – sweeter than marshmallows and sugar cubes and Japanese tea sweets made of pressed sugar. Hands down, no question,...

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 →

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 →

Millionaire’s Tart

Brand: Lidl Deluxe Cost: ~£2 Found at: Lidl   “Sophie Wessex is ‘exactly what the royal family needs’ because she ‘just gets on with it’ and doesn’t take on projects that are ‘very glamourous,’ according to a royal expert.” said the notification from the Daily Mail that popped up on the “news” app of my...

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. It might be sweeping vistas and wide-open prairie lands that are so inaccessible from my dorm room. It might be the visibility of an enemy dressed in a black cowboy... Continue Reading →
