Hi I’m Maria Alison! Welcome to Ten at the Table, a blog where you’ll find time-saving recipes, tips on saving money, tips on gardening like a boss, and whatever else pops into my hilarious psychotic mind.


A little bit about me….

I wear a bun (my family like to tease me and call it a hair pod, or a Mon chi chi bun) everyday of my life, except when I go to church, I wear my pajamas all day, I frolicked in the front yard when I got my first cast iron dutch oven (in my pajamas), I watch way too many episodes of Cake Boss, I burn beans all the time, I love reading spy novels, I call the internet the “interwebs”, I prune tomatoes like a mad woman, I’m not afraid to get my hands dirty (or jump in a dumpster), I have a severe obsession with Pinterest and YouTube, I never make my bed….ever, I love to eat chocolate (freezer is well stocked), I don’t follow a recipe when I make bread because I’ve made so many loaves I know how much of everything I need for which type of bread and the process to go along with it, I’m allergic to peaches, watermelon, kiwi, and a lot of other fruit and that makes me sad…, I have lots of food and supplies stockpiled so my family can survive anything we face, I dream of hunting alligators and living even farther south than I already do here in South Cackalacky, I have 2 beautiful sisters, five epic brothers, and two fabulous parents that let me use their kitchen whenever I want πŸ™‚ , I have a honey obsession, I’m horrible at speaking Spanish, and I can’t function without coffee. Like. At all.

I think that pretty much sums me up. Well there is more….but you’ll have to stick around to see the rest of me!

2 Thoughts on “About

  1. Found your site through Food Bloggers Central FB group. I’m telling my daughter to get out of the kitchen and stop by your site for a visit. She does most of the cooking for my own site. It’s time she steps out and gets her own site going. Yours is inspirational. πŸ™‚

  2. Hi Maria, I have thoroughly enjoyed your site. I love your pimento cheese recipe too. πŸ™‚
    I’m obsessed with Pinterest just like you, oh, I love it. Sounds like you are a wonderful Christian gal and you sure know how to enjoy life. Keep up the good work. πŸ™‚ You’re a great inspiration. Take care.
