Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich | Sarcastic Cooking

Women be crazy! That’s what I would say if I were going to approach this blog post like a stand-up comedian, be it a not so good stand-up comedian. But yeah, women be crazy! And when I say women, I am clearly speaking of myself here.

Why am I so crazy? Well, it all went down over the weekend. I had been looking forward to this little thing called the heirloom tomato festival happening at the Chicago Botanic Gardens. I added it to our Google calendar (much to Mike’s chagrin). I had been seeing a lot of pictures of these beautiful, ripe, and multicolored tomatoes all over my social media feed and I was getting sooo amped up! Yes, I know that in itself sounds crazy already but lay off me I am a food blogger/lover/hungry pregnant lady. [Read more…]

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

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…]

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…]

#BrunchWeek: Fresh Mint and Orange Blossom Fruit Salad

Fresh Mint and Orange Blossom Fruit Salad #BrunchWeek | Sarcastic Cooking I remember planning dinner parties and brunches in my twenties. It all centered around booze and fancy apps. I would look in this book I have called The Wine Bible and try and pair wines with tapas. For a small group of 10 friends I debearded and cooked mussels, roasted potatoes, made garlic bread, and created a whole meat and cheese platter. That was for just one dinner. Why did I go through all that? Plus ol’ party planner McGee didn’t count on the fact that everybody would only get 1-2 mussels. Dummy. [Read more…]

Huevos Rancheros

Huevos Rancheros | Sarcastic Cooking

Hey, guys, can’t take much time to type you some big long ramble today. You see, now that it is nice outside, my son has decided he would like to take up permanent residence outdoors. This plan of his keeps him very happy but leaves me with little time for cooking, cleaning, or blogging.

I am sorry about this inconvenience. [Read more…]
