Cranberry Citrus Cream Scones

Cranberry Citrus Cream Scones | Ten at the Table | http://tenatthetable.com

I don’t know if you guys already know this about me, but I can be a super lazy chick. My clothing normally consists of pajama pants, a tank top, and a dirty hoodie. All to be topped off with an extremely messy bun. So, I love food that allows me to be in and out of the kitchen quickly so I can tend to my other duties.

It’s a weird combination, but I am super lazy and super busy at the same time. These scones are very easy to make and not very time consuming, which makes them perfect for me! Read More →

Perfect Breakfast Burritos {Freezer-Friendly}

We all know how Monday goes… Just had a great weekend, woke up to a major “to-do” list, and you can’t even get the kids out of bed. Once they’re up, you gotta make sure each one is wearing clean matching clothes and has all of the papers they need signed. Sometimes they can’t find their backpacks, or their other shoe. And sometimes you have a massive migraine and you’ve got about 12 minutes to be out the door.

Oh, but you also have to get food into their bellies before you can think about finding your keys.

Mornings like these, I like to break out the breakfast burritos from the freezer. All I have to do is warm them in the microwave, and serve! Super easy, super quick, and it makes the whole morning seem less stressful.

The burritos themselves are very delicious, and filling. Imagine a bowl of amazing scrambled eggs with peppers, onions, and sausage. Now imagine its wrapped in a tortilla for convenient consuming. Yes. That’s exactly what your Monday needs! Is it not?

They are also loaded with protein to keep everyone fully charged for the day ahead.

Cheesy Jalapeno Poppers

Words of the wise.

Wear gloves.

Aaaaaand don’t touch your eyes.

Please just trust me on this.

The first time I made this…hehe…was a nightmare. I didn’t know how to handle hot peppers so I just went for it like it was a bell pepper. Big mistake. My finger tips burned for days. I washed my hands. With soap. The burn remained. Also, if I licked my fingers, I could still taste the spiciness of the jalapeno on them. Guys, it hurt. Please wear gloves.

If my fingertips couldn’t handle it…how do you think my eyes would have felt?

I am not looking forward to figuring out.

Nope.

Easy Homemade Pizza {Freezer-Friendly}

Ever since I can remember my family has had homemade pizza for dinner on Friday nights. So in that time we have gone through countless recipes.

But most of the recipes we’ve tried haven’t turned out and I was tired of pizza night being a total failure. I like good pizza and I like making good pizza, but when what I make tastes off, it’s a little discouraging. I knew good pizza was a possibility but I couldn’t figure out what I was doing wrong.

My friend (after hearing me rant about my epic failure) offered to give me her favorite recipe that has always worked for her. I eagerly accepted and tried it the following Friday….

SUCCESS!!!!

Never had I tasted something so lovely! Ever!

Homemade Freezer Biscuits

Since switching from eating already prepared food and snacks bought from the store, to cooking from scratch, we have discovered many amazing recipes. The children have also began to expect amazing home-cooked meals every time. Which is good! Right? They should crave real food and not a box of pop-tarts. But I don’t always have time to prepare a meal from scratch. Those are the times I rely on freezer cooking to save the day.
