They may be a mouthful to say, but these Oreo Funfetti Marshmallow Cookies are the perfect combination of rich, crunchy biscuits, soft, chewy marshmallows, colourful funfetti and my famous cookie dough. Perfect for Halloween or just because you want cookies!

Before I talk about these awesome Oreo Funfetti Marshmallow Cookies, I have to talk skin.

Am I the only one who still has skin like a teenager even though I’m an adult?

It’s sooooooooooo annoying! :(

I do everything I can to calm it down, I have a strict cleansing regime every single day and I must say it’s definitely been better since I changed to Origins, but I dream of having clear skin!

It doesn’t help that the weather is changing, my skin is ultra sensitive to changeable weather! In Summer it seems to get oily, in Winter I get dry spots which are just really sore and scabby :(

I drink loads of water, have a diet which is low in fat, exercise every day, take antibiotics for it, do masks and exfoliate, don’t wear make-up often to let it breathe… – this does keep it pretty OK, but this morning I got up, looked in the mirror and just thought UGH. I’ve got massive red spots on my chin and around my nose again!

Does anyone have any other remedies they’ve found work? I guess I can’t complain too much as I was pretty much “pizza face” at school and it doesn’t look like that anymore, but it still gets to me!

Anyway, let’s talk amazing, rich, chocolatey cookies. Continue reading


First of all, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your kind words re my living with chronic pain post. I am completely overwhelmed and have cried at many of your comments because I really feel like I’m not alone and I do have support.

Sharing my story has definitely helped me feel more positive, it feels like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders and even though I have no relief as yet, I’m feeling mentally stronger and able to continue fighting, so thank you all!! :)

Life Beyond the Kitchen {9} | Annie's Noms

This weekend just gone, I went to South Wales to stay in a Yurt with my friends, so it’s high time for another Life Beyond the Kitchen post!

Can we talk about how crazy it is to not have any access to the internet for 4 DAYS.

I was working like mad on Thursday scheduling all sorts of things so that I could go away for the weekend. It was mad. I feel like my blog is my baby and to be away from it for 4 days was just weird.

(Yea I missed the dog and my OH too.)

I mean, it’s great that you can schedule things, but trying to make sure I remembered everything was hard enough. Then I thought about all the emails I’d come back to. Hundreds. Utter madness.

God help me if I decide to go away for more than a week! :O Continue reading

It’s time for my Secret Recipe Club reveal!

This month I was assigned Michele’s blog Flavor Mosaic and boy was I spoilt for choice!!

Of course, before I searched through all of Michele’s recipe, I headed on over to her About Me page.

I learnt that she’s a food lover who often creates recipes based on what is in the cupboards, which is great because I have so much stuff in this house and no idea what to do with it!! In fact, the final recipe I chose used up some of these cupboard ingredients which was a bonus! But anyway, I tend to cook like that too, it’s great to experiment with different ingredients and sometimes you create the most amazing dishes when you’re least expecting it!! Continue reading

Candy Overload Magic Bars | Annie's Noms - An Oreo base is topped with condensed milk, shredded coconut and a myriad of candy creating a soft gooey, chocolatey magic bar!

Holy yum. These bars are something special!

I’ve seen so many Magic Bar recipes and I’ve been wondering what all the fuss was about. Then I saw they had nuts and I was like “Argghhh crap”.

Then I decided that I’m not one to follow rules, so made my own version sans nuts.

And now I understand what all the fuss is about. :)

Although, I have come to the conclusion that they are very ugly. Continue reading


Something very different that I’m sharing with you today. It’s very personal and I’m kind of scared to put it out there, but I’ve been feeling overwhelmed recently and I had the biggest urge to write down how I’m feeling and what I’m coping with. Living with chronic pain is NOT fun, I spend half my life in hospitals, clinics and Doctor’s surgeries, but it’s also something you can’t always see. I’m hoping this post will help you understand a little bit more about me and why sometimes I can be a little MIA.

But you don't look like you're in pain... | Annie's Noms

You don’t see that every time I get up it’s like curtains closing over my eyes because I’m so dizzy.

You don’t see that I have sharp pain bolting through my legs every time I move.

You don’t see that I have arthritis in my knees and my back is in constant spasm and can’t bend more than a few inches.

You don’t see that it hurts to breathe because my back hurts so much.

You have no idea that every single day of my life, I’m on a concoction of medication that would send most people into either a hysterical mess or a zombie.

Just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it ceases to exist. Continue reading
