Deliciously All-American

I have always had a soft spot for the grand U S of A; beautiful beaches, superb shopping and the warmest hospitality that I’ve ever experienced… however, it’s the memories of the delectable food and pleasing portions that will always make me grin.

A Sweet Start to the Day

I have to say that nowhere does breakfast quite like our American counterparts. Podgy pancakes jam-packed with delights, flavoursome cereals to satisfy the sweet tooth and quirky dishes like breakfast burritos ensure you’re ready for the day ahead. When I was a child, I loved the sugary sweetness of Lucky Charms and Pop Tarts. Today I think these classic treats make wonderful presents; nostalgic gifts that are perfect for the young at heart.

 

Tasty Sandwich Fillers

As much as I love a classic cheese and pickle sarnie, sometimes it’s nice to have something a little different. Fluff is a delicious marshmallow spread that I could happily eat with a spoon – although one to avoid if you’re perfecting that bikini body! Desire an iconic American snack? Try spreading Smuckers’ signature blend of peanut butter and jelly in the centre of a wholemeal bread bun for a little lunchtime fun.     

 

Finishing Touches

If you’ve cooked or baked something scrumptious, complete your creation with a couple of American favourites. Betty Crocker will ensure that you’re cakes are the chicest, while a splash of A1 sauce with make any steak spectacular.

Kate O'Brien

Hi I'm Kate, in a previous life I was Womenswear Editor but these days you are more likely to find me pouring over a planning calendar than the latest copy of Elle in my role as Online Content Producer. A Northern tourist in London, some of my favourite things in life include red wine, chutney (accompanied by cheese), sequins, grey cashmere and Matt Damon. I am known in the HoF office for owning far too many coats for one person, laughing too loud, and drinking full fat Coke only when hungover. My life's ambition is a simple one; to own a Puggle.
