Welcome to my little sweet corner. If you are a passionate baker with a very strong sweet tooth and you spend your days baking, thinking about baking, and talking about baking then you are at the right place and I am thrilled to have you
Let’s start with you can call me Dee. My birth name is Dikla, an Israeli name that challenges many. I’m behind “One Sarcastic Baker”.
I was born and raised in Israel and followed my heart and moved to the stats after meeting my husband back in 2008. Moving was a big change, I had to say goodbye to my family and friends but it was also when I picked up a spatula and an oven mitten and started to bake!
I speak three languages, Hebrew, English, and Sarcasm. (However, my parents can swear I also speak a lot of nonsense).
I have few obsessions and no desire to get over any:
THIS is the reason I get up in the morning and why I’m so tired at night. My husband my two “little me”. I will save the details about how these 3 inspired me for later. For now, I can say that our life is one “Full House” episode, where to talk about everything while shedding a tear and announcing “I love you”. Yep, I’m living the American dream!
Can’t help it. I LOVE this band! The main reason I started this blog is to pass time until their next tour. If you’re a Pearl Jam fan, you’re probably reading this for the same reason. I will most likely quote and/or mention the band once or twice…so be ready? But I like a variety of music, I also listen to Eddie Vedder, RNDM, Mad Season, and Temple of the Dog…
Understand, It’s a force of nature. I breathe there for I bake. I love every aspect of it: envisioning and planning, research and experimenting. I love the sound of the mixer and the smell of melted Chocolate. Counting my spatulas, the triumph feeling when my pie crust is tender and flaky. Most of all I love the hug I get from my daughter because I smell like cupcakes. This is just to start with.
For some reason, I thought that going to business school would be ” a practical” choice, hence no budget for a formal banking education. This is why I had to be resourceful and with the help of some Baking masters like King Arthur Flour, Rose Levy Beranbaum, hours and hours of reading about baking science, and some amazing bloggers like Baking Bites, and Sprinkle Bakes I managed to learn a thing or two. I even got a job at a retail bakery where I work for a few years.
This blog is a personal journal of my Long Road both as a baker who dreams of owning a bakery and as a mom who wants to have it all.
