10 Totally Awesome Hangover Recipes

I’ve been known to overindulge from time to time. If you follow me on Instagram, you know we went on an epic pub crawl on Saturday. It was outrageously fun, but Sunday was pretty much a waste. When I’m hungover, I want something greasy and carby, and perhaps a bit over the top. Geoff’s go to hang over food is a Sausage McMuffin and some Funyuns. Just in case you have the wherewithal to cook actual food the next day, may I suggest these totally awesome recipes to help you make it through the hard times.

Cholesterol Sandwich

There’s nothing like waking up to a Cholesterol Sandwich. Crispy bacon, drippy fried egg, gooey cheese on mayo-covered toast. It heals anything.

I could eat a bucketful of Bacon Carbonara. It’s basically breakfast pasta. It’s completely awesome.

Lemon Linguine from Awesome on 20

In case you’re a veggie only kinda kid, there’s Lemon Linguine. It’s a carb lover’s dream.

Full English Breakfast3

All my husband ever really wants from life is a Full English Breakfast, especially on a Sunday morning.

  Sloppy Joe Casserole from Awesome on 20

Sloppy Joe Casserole is pure comfort. I’m not above just eating a whole tube of crescent rolls, but at least this poses as a legitimate dinner.

Any sausage rolls you can get your hands on should make you feel better, but if they’re Fancy Pants Sausage Rolls with Ham and Cheddar, all the better for you.

Mini Ham and Cheese Sandwiches from Awesome on 20

Mini Ham and Cheese Sandwiches are small so you can eat six of them. I think that’s how it works.

If someone suggests stopping off for food on the way home from a night out, pancakes are always my pick. Sugar and carbs. That’s all that matters. Making your own Buttermilk Pancakes also does the trick.

Frito Chili Cheese Wrap from Awesome on 20

Fast food always sounds awesome when I’m hung over. Fast food made at home means I don’t have to put on pants. That’s why you should make your own Frito Chili Cheese Wrap.

Cheddar Habanero Corn Bread

I’ve been so extremely lazy these days. A complete and total lack of motivation. I want to do exactly nothing. I think I need to hibernate. A week in bed with books, Netflix, and somebody bringing me food seems like the only good plan. Why does life keep happening? Can’t we ever just take a break? What I wouldn’t give for a little bit of Snowpocalypse right about now. But no, the sun is shining and it’s a beautiful day. People expect you to go outside and interact with other humans. It’s disgusting.

Cheddar Habenero Corn Bread | How to be Awesome on $20 a Day

If I was lucky enough to be trapped in my house, I’d want bottomless chili and this cheesy, spicy Cheddar Habanero Corn Bread. They’re the perfect match. The corn bread is dense with an awesome, slightly crunchy texture, and supremely spicy from the six ounces of shredded habanero cheddar cheese I folded into it. If you can’t find habanero cheddar at your store, regular pepper jack will suffice.

When you’re completely wiped out by winter doldrums, chili and corn bread is just the thing. It’s warm and comforting but also sets your mouth on fire. Hopefully you made it to the store in time to buy plenty of milk or beer before you got snowed in. Man, I wish I was snowed in. I can’t get over it.

Practically Perfect Chocolate Cake

Practically Perfect Chocolate Cake | How to be Awesome on $20 a Day

Geoff and I have been trying out intermittent fasting. You never realize how much you think about food until you can’t have any. I get to eat 500 calories a day. I only do it twice a week. It’s not like I’m starving. It’s fine. But it is weird to realize how many times I’m tempted to eat just while driving to work. Then I come home and look at my Bloglovin’ feed, and I might as well be in Hell. It just makes the day after fast day so much better.

Practically Perfect Chocolate Cake | How to be Awesome on $20 a Day

Last week I finally got around to reading all those Valentine’s Day posts, and I realized that if I didn’t make myself a chocolate cake, I might die. And when you need chocolate cake, there’s really only one recipe that counts. In my opinion, it’s better than any restaurant or bakery chocolate cake. It’s better than box mix or even a fancy butter cake. When Hershey’s called it “perfect,” they weren’t lying. Bonus points for being ridiculously easy to make.

This cake is moist and so light I can hardly believe it. It’s exactly the right amount of chocolaty and perfectly sweet. The frosting is amazing. It’s creamy and smooth and deep. When you start to make it, you’ll worry that you don’t have enough, but once you whip it up at the end, it expands perfectly. I used all the frosting and felt like it was just right.

I had no reason to make a chocolate cake other than the fact that I just really wanted one. I’m trying to be better at that. Giving myself what I want if it’s within reason. A little bit of deprivation can make a reward seem so much sweeter.

For the cake
  1. 2 cups sugar
  2. 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  3. 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  4. 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  5. 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  6. 1 teaspoon salt
  7. 2 eggs
  8. 1 cup milk
  9. 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  10. 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  11. 1 cup boiling water
For the frosting
  1. 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  2. 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  3. 3 cups powdered sugar
  4. 1/3 cup heavy cream
  5. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the cake
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 and grease two 9-inch round cake pans.
  2. Combine all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add the eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla and mix on medium for two minutes. Scrape the bowl and add the boiling water with the mixer on low. You batter will be very thin. It's cool.
  3. Pour your batter evenly into your two waiting pans and bake for 30 minutes. Whatever you do, don't overbake this cake. It will still be good, but it reaches peak awesomeness when there's plenty of moisture left.
  4. Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn them out on a wire rack to cool completely.
For the frosting
  1. Add your butter and cocoa powder to a large mixing bowl and beat until combined. It'll look chunky. Slowly mix in the powdered sugar. It's going to be super thick, but don't freak out. Next beat in the cream and vanilla, then turn the mixer up to medium high and beat for about two minutes. Your frosting will expand and become smooth.
  2. To assemble the cake, place your first layer on its final destination and spread about a third of the frosting on top of the first layer. Place the second layer on top and frost the sides of the cake first, covering completely. Add the rest of the frosting to the top of the cake and spread evenly.
  3. Slice, eat, and just try to live inside the perfection.
