Meatless Monday: Creamy Vegan Roasted Tomato Sauce

I am sure if you are anything like me, you look at people’s Instagram pictures or Facebook posts and want to virtually vomit when you read about how their kids sleep through the night and sleep late waking them up with quiet kisses or when you see pictures of kids in totally unstained hipster chic clothes. Is that reality? That certainly is not my reality.

Yesterday, while Andy was crying because I wouldn’t let him have my coffee cup, I was thinking that a picture of that is what people should be posting on social media. It would be a sign of comradery, like we are all in this craziness together. It would be a way of saying, “Don’t worry, my kid just spilled roasted red pepper soup all over that cute and clean sweatshirt too!” [Read more…]

This week has been a true stand-off. It has been filled with tears and maybe a little wine therapy for the adults clearly. I know I probably should have done this earlier but the baby snuggles, they put a spell on me! I know they won’t last forever so I may have enjoyed cuddling and rocking my sweet demon child to sleep every night. For those of you non parental types, if you couldn’t tell, I am talking about good old crying it out.

I always find myself questioning every little thing I do as a parent. Like, is the amount of heartache and tears flowing from my kids’ eyes really worth it? You’re telling me that if I rock Andy to sleep every night, he will still want that when he is 12? I highly doubt it. Alas, we are still sticking with breaking him of his dependency upon us for sleeping comfort. That might sound bad, but yep, we are slowly trying to break my child’s spirit. [Read more…]

Meatless Monday: Blistered Tomato and Ricotta Spaghetti

Blistered Tomato and Ricotta Spaghetti \\ Sarcastic Cooking

Hold the phone! When did this happen? One second I am living in Chiberia and kept indoors by a polar vortex and then the next second the trees are green and it is 85. WTF, Mother Nature?!? I could have used a little more easing into this season. Don’t you agree?

Not that I am complaining. Well, I guess I am kind of complaining…but if you know me well enough, you know I am pretty much Walter Matthau in Grumpy Old Men inside the body of a 30 year old woman, so you are probably used to it by now. [Read more…]
