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.

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.
