Summer Wedge Salad with Charred Corn and Blue-Cheese Avocado Dressing | Sarcastic Cooking

Summer is all about adventures. My five year old niece told me a few weeks ago, “It’s summer, Aunt Stefanie. You should come over any day because, like, every day we are going on so many adventures.” This mentality works out perfectly in our house because I have two antsy pants’ who cannot sit still. I am clearly talking about Mike and Andy. Weezer is my soul mate because we could sit on the couch all day…clearly it is not him!

Every morning Mike asks me, “So what are we doing today?” And every morning I roll my eyes and try to rack my brain for something to do. [Read more…]

Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup

Oh, dorm life. It had its ups and downs. Um, downs for sure were sharing living quarters with somebody who had a serious boyfriend. Weekend nights when said boyfriend came to visit, uh-uh, if you know what I mean. On the upside, all of your meals are within walking distance and all the money you ever needed for food was on a little plastic card that didn’t come out of your pocket!!!!

College life was simpler. [Read more…]

Every day you guys come here and read my little tidbits about myself and my little life. I feel like you hear about me, my brothers, my Mom, Weezer, and Andy all the time but you don’t really hear too much about the man behind the blog, Mike.

Well, scratch that, you do hear about him occasionally. The stories about him are usually about his hatred for tomatoes or about something weird/infuriating that he did. [Read more…]

Oh, you guys, it has been a rough few poopy days over here. Without going into too much gross detail, I will say that Andy was battling some sort of little stomach bug oooorrr maybe I just fed the kid too many grapes. The jury is still out on the cause. He seemed in good spirits through all of it, so I guess that was the silver lining. After those days, I just want to curl up and sleep.

Mike and I have a sort of deal. Mike gets home from work and then kind of takes over the sleep routine and if Andy wakes up in the middle of the night, Mike is the one to shuffle into his room and sleepily get Andy to calm down and fall back asleep. [Read more…]

Sweet Corn and Jalapeno Enchiladas

Sweet Corn and Jalapeno Enchiladas | Sarcastic Cooking

Enchiladas! Say it with me now, “Ennn-cheeee-laaahhh-daaaahhhhs!”

One thing I learned while struggling to learn how to be a new parent was that enchiladas are an easy weeknight meal for people who would rather be sleeping than slaving away in the kitchen.

My friend Stephanie from Girl versus Dough just was initiated into the weirdness and magicalness that is parenthood. While she is enjoying every sleepy snuggle with baby Avery, I am guest posting over on her site.

I am sharing one of my favorite enchilada recipes, sweet corn and jalapeno! These are totally doable on a busy weeknight and would also be a quick showstopper if you have guests over for dinner.

So, hop on over to Girl versus Dough and check out the recipe and my “sage” words of advice for new moms.
