DIY Drumstick Ice Cream Cones

DIY Drumstick Ice Cream Cones | Sarcastic Cooking

Ah, summer! Can you feel it? It is close. Pretty soon schools will be out of session and the creepy bells of the ice cream truck will echo along the streets of the neighborhood. Yeah, I said creepy. There is something eerie and haunting about that chimey song.

Growing up, we lived on a dead end street. There were two other houses with kids roughly me and my brothers’ age on the block. We didn’t get a lot of action from the neighborhood ice cream trucks. Womp, womp. Fear not though, our house was never lacking of Flintstone Push-Pops or Fudgesicles. [Read more…]

Chewy Cocoa Nib, Walnut, Oatmeal Cookies

Whenever I bake cookies at home, I always sing the song, “It’s Cookie Time” from Troop Beverly Hills. It is one of my favorite movies of all time. It is right up there with Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter is Dead and High Fidelity. Yeah, I know, I like good and varied movies.

The first time I saw Troop Beverly Hills I was at a sleepover birthday party. We literally all stood up on top of our sleeping bags and did the Freddy along with Shelley Long. Then we went back to snuggling with our plush Troll babies with the little poof of hair and Puffalumps. BTW we were all maybe 12 years old. [Read more…]

Hard Apple Cider Custard Pie

Isn’t it funny how your goals and aspirations change through the years? Sometimes I like to compare my little kid hopes and dreams to my grown up Debbie Downer hopes and dreams. It is quite the examination of contradictions.

I don’t know why I am oversharing this little tidbit into my little kid psyche, but here we go. When I was little I used to sing all the time. I used to write songs on little notepads and sing them to my mom. A capella. Now, on one hand, yes that is super cute. On the other hand, I now know I do not have a great singing voice. I never have, never will. And don’t be all like, “Oh no Stef, I’m sure that’s not true.” Just to try and humor me. Trust me, I am fine with it. I still sing regardless, so don’t worry. [Read more…]

I have been trying my best to not overwhelm you with cookie and sweets recipes this month. I think I have been doing pretty well. Although, I do have two more sweets recipes up my sleeve before Christmas juuuust in case you are in need of more things to add to your holiday baking list (or your waistline). [Read more…]

Fresh Mint and Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies

It’s no secret I run a food blog and take care of Andy for a living. In order to have both of these jobs working cohesively, I have to do a bit of juggling. This means cooking while Andy is napping, corralled in the highchair, or under the care and supervision of another person.

The day when I was feeling a bit brave and Andy was feeling a bit clingy was when I decided to try and prep, bake, and photograph these cookies. I knew it would be crazy and probably take twice as long to bake, but I went for it anyway. With the holidays around the corner, I wanted to get as many recipes done in advance so I could actually spend time away from the kitchen when Mike is off from work and we have a bit of family time.
