Hi there I’m Dee,
Welcome to my little sweet corner. If you are a passionate baker with an extremely 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 here.
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, followed my heart, and moved to the state after meeting my husband in 2008. Moving was a significant 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! I started this blog mainly so I can pass the time until their next tour. If you’re a Pearl Jam fan, you’re probably reading this for the same reason. I will 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: 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 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, and 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 worked for a few years.
This blog is a personal journal of my Long Road as a baker who dreams of owning a bakery and as a mom who wants to have it all.
