Tangy Pasta Salad

I don't know about you but I need a meat break. I'm taking this opportunity in between Christmas and New Years Eve to come up for air. If you're wondering where I've been swimming, it's in a sea of the most amazing Christmas food: chocolate oranges, pigs, cows and turkey's galore, topped with all the trimmings. Even brussels sprouts. Especially bacon.

Salted Caramel and Chocolate Cupcakes


I love cupcakes and I love a bit of icing, but I can't be dealing with those cupcakes where half of the whole thing is icing. Too much. So, if you are an icing lover, you may look at my delicate little flowers and spit in their tiny pretty faces with disgust, yelling "I can see the actual cupcake sponge! What is this madness? This is not allowed! MORE ICING! I IMPLORE YOU!" In which case, please be my guest, pile it on. I, however, shall maintain my tiny flower faces and will love them unconditionally. And drizzle them with salted caramel.

Parmesan Shortbread & Bacon Jam


'Tis the season to eat bacon jam. Actually there isn't a season when you shouldn't eat bacon jam. It should be eaten in every season and that's one of the many reasons why we love it so. The term 'jam' here should be taken with a large pinch of salt. Think part chutney, part relish, part jam.

Wintry Chicken Soup


So it's that time of year when everyone is the picture of health and public transport is a minefield of sneezes. Along with all the usual anti-illness tactics (such as warmth and medication) we have chicken soup.

Quinoa salad with balsamic glazed carrots and halloumi


Having been gorging a little on totally delicious and bum enhancing (not in the good way) food at a wonderfully elaborate thanksgiving dinner this week, I figured it was time to have a wander down the healthy path and say hello to some superfoods. Obviously i'm going to sneak a little cheese into my handbag (actually a hemp backpack would probably be more apt for this journey).

The Ultimate Sourdough Toastie



There are too many words I want to put in the title of this one. Cheesy. Crispy. Toastie. Sourdough. Bacon. Crispy cheesy grilled toasted sandwich with avocado, bacon, mozzarella and SO MUCH DELICIOUSNESS. I have a feeling people might be intimidated.

New York Cheesecake

A cheesecake was requested for a birthday. With limited time and presents prioritising, the cheesecake was pushed aside. Not forgotten, merely simmering under the surface waiting for the opportune moment. And when that moment arrived, my gosh was it cheesy.

Extra Cheesy Bacon Lasagna

I feel I have been letting you all down somewhat on the cheese front. Yes there has been cheese cropping up, poking its head politely round the door to with a meek 'hello'; but I want in-your-face, obnoxious, heart and soul of the party cheese. And bacon, obviously.

Crispy Garlic Pita Chips


If you're really struggling for a Halloween costume, these could temporarily double as fangs. Really tasty fangs that most likely aren't very comfortable (I'm a witch so I've not tested the fang costume).

Bacon, Asparagus & Mozzarella Tart



I can't bring myself to say Flan. Even though this is, technically, a flan. It doesn't sound British enough and tart is just better. More fun.

Savoury Veggie & Feta Strudel


Sometimes even the best vegetables alone just don’t cut it. You need a flakey, crispy, buttery pastry to just cradle your vegetables, lovingly. Not in an ‘I’m going to clog your arteries’ kind of way but in more of an ‘I’m going to make this vegetable eating experience a really blooming good one’ kind of way.

Herby Courgette and Halloumi Pasta



I know I know, another healthy(ish) recipe. I'll make up for it by helping you clog your arteries soon enough.

Date with a Bacon Scone


So firstly I want to thank all those who said 'Rosie what the hell are you doing? Why haven't you posted on your blog? Idiot'. Thank you for your kind and inspiring words.

Marshmallows and Crispy Cakes





I had a craving: For marshmallows. Pretty straightforward.

I had a reason: It has been scientifically proven that if you give your company marshmallows shortly before leaving, your colleagues are 76% more likely to buy you a drink at your leaving party.

The King of Omelettes



Again, I realise I've started off with a major statement. Although having referred to my Scotch Egg as 'Perfect' and my Bacony Beans as 'Brad Pitt', I think by now you might understand how I feel about food. Food wins.

Bacony Beans


BACON! It finally features. OK so it's a side dish and the bacon takes more of a supporting role but you know, it's still bacon. I figured it was about time.

Nigella's Nutella Cheesecake


Ok, so as expected and like most of Nigella’s recipes, this is totally indulgent, unbelievably delicious and so far from healthy that it makes you fat just looking at it. Amazing.
