You guys hear that? That whirring noise? It is a familiar noise for this time of year. It signals a change in the seasons. Yep, that lulling humming whir is coming from my seasonal BFF, my humidifier. Ah, now with that going on full steam, I can smell the crisp fall air approaching and smell the pumpkin spiced-everything floating in the air. [Read more…]
Well, in the matter of a week, we are in the midst of fall, people, that is until October hits and we end up back in the 80’s for a week. Isn’t that how it always is though? Since we are better friends here, I will quit with the small talk about the weather.
A change in seasons always makes me want to do heavy duty cleaning and rearranging. Mike is a huge fan of this quality about me. He is the one who does all the heavy lifting all around here so you better believe he looooves this quality about me. Over the weekend we completely rearranged our living room and front room area. In addition to the rearrange we did some light baby proofing since somebody is all about crawling and pulling himself up to standing on things. [Read more…]
That might be up there in contention for the longest recipe title I have ever posted. Excuse me for wanting to be thorough! Anyway, the wonderful people over at Better Homes and Gardens asked me to take one of their old recipes from the archives and give it the ol’ Sarcastic Cooking spin. [Read more…]
Hey my lovely readers! I have a treat for you! Every Friday for the months of December and January, I will be featuring guest posts from some of my amazing food blog friends. You really didn’t think I would leave you hangry and lonely with no new recipes while I am busy preparing for baby and then figuring this whole motherhood thing out, did you?
Kicking things off for the month of December is my friend Julia from A Cedar Spoon. She is actually expecting a baby boy too! This will be her second little guy! She knows a lot about juggling baby and blog and has been a great sounding board through this pregnancy of mine.
Her blog is filled with quick, easy, and healthy weeknight meals and treats. If you haven’t checked her site out yet, I highly recommend it! [Read more…]
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.
