#BrunchWeek: Braided Ham and Cheddar Bread

Braided Ham and Cheddar Bread for #BrunchWeek | Sarcastic Cooking

Here we are, day three of brunch week. Is it just me or is this week dragging? Well, at least we can all plan our Mother’s Day brunches while gawking at good recipes from all these brunching bloggers. PS You won’t believe how many times I forget the l in blogger. Thank God for spell check.

Ham. Let’s talk about it. When I was younger, in my mind, the best holiday meat was always the turkey. Now, as I get older, I realize that turkey gets really dry and, no offense to all the turkey lovers, it can be kind of lacking in the flavor dept. I totally feel this way about chicken breast sometimes too. I know how to dress up a fowl, but still nothing beats a good ol’ juicy ham. [Read more…]

Are you sick of getting asked, “What’s for dinner?” Are you sick of asking yourself that question? Did you maybe not realize that, once you became a mom, your life would revolve around food? Well, if you answered yes to any of those questions, then do I have something for you! The automatic-chef-in-a-box-2000!

No. Not really it is just me and my big brain trying to help you answer that question. [Read more…]

You guys! My best friend is getting married tomorrow! Also, this will hopefully be the last bridesmaid dress I have to wear for… ever! It is a momentous day. My best friend’s wedding will be downtown Chicago tomorrow afternoon. I promise not to blow up Instagram with wedding pics. Well, maybe some of my makeup. This is my first time getting it professionally done.

I trust my BFF’s taste though. She is my classay friend. Sigh, I just can’t believe it. My best friend’s wedding!!! Aaaahhhh! Not in the Dermott Mulroney way. But oh man did I love that movie. Julia Roberts in her prime. I still have a crush on Dermott in that movie. [Read more…]

My current sitch at 8:00p.m. Monday night: Listening to the lullabye version of Phil Collins’ You’ll Be In My Heart through the walls as Mike tries to put Andy to bed. Weezer is next to me. In one hand, I am holding his binky full of peanut butter for him, because he is a brat and refuses to hold it with his paws, and trying to type with my other hand at the same time. My wine is on the coffee table which just seems way too far to reach for because if I move out from under this heated blanket, I might freeze. Baseball is still on the TV because Mike didn’t turn it off and like I said, I don’t want to move out of fear of freezing. [Read more…]

Homemade Pumpernickel Bread


So, it is time once again for me to most likely overshare one of my many neuroses with you all. Today, I want to tell you how I talk to my animals. More specifically, how I never really call them by their actual names.

Before I go into this, I want to say one little thing. I am not really posting a Thanksgiving related recipe this week. I figure you guys already have your menu planned out. I could be wrong though. In case you are still struggling for one last dish, check out my new favorite board on Pinterest full of side dish ideas.

Ok, back to my weirdness. [Read more…]
