Creamy Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup

Creamy Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup | Sarcastic Cooking

Hey!!! Welcome to fall or as I like to call it, that awkward transition between seasons where it is cold one day and then hot one day. I got my welcome to fall with a nice boogery cold sweeping through my household. Yep that is right. Snot. Everywhere. Sorry. I know it is a food blog.

The other day I was so excited it was fall that I jammed my fat foot into my boots (which are a little snug post pregnancy) with some leggings and my favorite fall jacket and headed out with Andy for some errands. It was a brisk 50 degrees in the morning. By the time I had gotten home it was almost eighty and my fall outfit seemed like it was trying to kill me by keeping in all the body heat I was producing from moving bags into the house from the car.

Crock Pot Pork Carnitas

Well, it is that time of year again. Summer, well not really. In my house it is the time of year I love and my husband loathes—cherry tomato season! Every single year, we get into at least one real argument about cherry tomatoes. I am totally serious.

This time of year, I start stocking up on these bite-size treasures. I add them to pastas, salads, sandwiches, tacos, and even snack on them alone. I just love that burst of fresh, seasonal tomato flavor. And that very taste explosion, is what Mike hates. [Read more…]

Slow-Cooked Italian White Beans with Parmesan Polenta

Hey! Hey, you guys! It’s me! (waving frantically from across the interwebs). I am back!

Well, my poor little laptop is back from its retreat out in Texas. Sad to say, I lost a lot of pictures and recipes, so things around here are going to change until I get my computer, which is basically a blank slate right now, back to the way it used to be. I am going to be posting new great recipes, as per usual, but only four times a week now as opposed to the old five times a week. Now, that we got that little bit of business out of the way, let’s get back to why you really visit this site, the food!

Whilst my computer was gone, I took comfort in stress cleaning and my new ultimate (guilt-free I might add) comfort food, beans. I know that doesn’t sound like much at first. But, have you ever made a batch of beans from the dried state all the way through to the delicately cooked stage? It is a process and definitely takes your mind off a lot of other things. PS, by process, I by no means mean hard.

Lazy Turkey Cabbage Rolls

Back when I first started this site, I shared with you my prized recipe for my Grandfather’s Cabbage Rolls. I taught you some valuable Polish words like Dziadzia (jah-jah), which means grandpa, and Gołąbki (ga-whump-ki), which is the traditional Polish cabbage roll.

Speaking about my Dziadzia is always bittersweet. It has been about five years since he passed away, and I still miss him. I know my entire family still misses him too. He is always in my heart and on my mind though, especially with one of my favorite holidays, Easter, approaching.

Over Christmas, I succumbed to the impulse purchase of a small rosemary bush. He would probably be sad that after all the time I spent around him, watching him garden while growing up, I barely kept that plant alive for a week or two at most.  But I can make a mean batch of pickles, which he would be proud of.

Greek Green Beans

After yesterday’s totally not healthy recipe, I decided to share with you one of my in-law’s favorite recipes that is totally healthy and sooooo easy. Wait a second; actually, the recipe yesterday wasn’t that bad. It was a salad made with Greek yogurt on top of a hot dog. The only not healthy stuff was the bacon and prrrrrrobably the hot dog. So, maybe unhealthy wasn’t the right word, maybe balanced is more appropriate.

Anyway, my in-laws are totally obsessed with Greek food. Let it be noted that they are not Greek; they are just big fans of the cuisine. I don’t blame them. Greek food is big on flavor and low on fat. The first time I really ate authentic Greek food was with Mike’s sisters and their husbands. We went down to Greek town for my sister-in-law’s 30th birthday.
