15 Quesadilla Recipes You Have to Try!

Back to school is right around the corner and my kitchen is full of veggies from the garden still. On hot late summer nights like this, one of the family favorite go-to dinners are quesadillas. They are quick, delicious, and don’t heat up the kitchen. Quesadillas are also easy to customize for each family member. If one doesn’t like onion and the next doesn’t want peppers changes are a snap. I love serving them with sour cream and homemade Pico de Gallo. These are 15 quesadilla recipes you have to try!

These quesadillas are also great for those busy school night. We are always rushing around with sports getting back in full swing and music practices. Quesadillas are great for pre-prepping and making for each person when they actually have time to eat. They are also great for school lunches if your child has access to a microwave to reheat it.

Homemade Nachos

 

 

 

These homemade nachos just might become your new best friend but be sure to share them with the ones you love! These homemade nachos just might become your new best friend but be sure to share them with the ones you love! It was one of those hot summer days when you consider moving to Canada. I know it gets hot in Canada as my northern friends tell me but this is a level of hot that can only be achieved in the deep south. I mean cook an egg on the sidewalk hot. I thought I was going to melt away anytime I had to go outside. Forget getting the mail, it can sit in the mailbox all day until the sun goes down. And trying to accomplish anything with your hair is just an exercise in futility.

Making dinner in the summer can be a dilemma. I try to serve as many salads over the course of the summer that I can get away with before the crew starts to mutiny.  But I  don’t want to heat up the house by using the oven or cooking over the stove for a long time. Read More →

Spicy Tuna Rangoon

It was my little sister’s birthday and we were having a full on Chinese food night with stir fry, egg rolls, shrimp fried rice, dumplings, and crab rangoon on the menu. As always, when there is a wide variety of cooked dishes to be made at the same time, the kitchen quickly got very hot, and I got very frustrated.

I could only wrangle one little helper into the kitchen that night, and I had him making the egg rolls. While he was working I made the fried rice, and stir fry. Then I noticed the wonton wrappers sitting on the counter….

Oh…right.

The rangoons.

The part everybody was looking forward to the most.

It’s a good thing it doesn’t take that long, I thought. I started getting out the ingredients and I went to the fridge to grab the crab last….

Oh.

Oh no.

No crab……

I frantically looked through the kitchen for anything I could use to substitute from the crab. For a while I was seriously thinking about using Spam. Luckily I noticed a few cans of Bumble Bee® Prime Fillet® Albacore Tuna with Jalapeños & Olive Oil. My helper was about halfway done with frying the egg rolls, so I grabbed the tuna and started working.

Balsamic Mushroom Pasta

Balsamic Mushroom Salad|Ten at the Table

Every year on Mother’s Day, I have the worst gift. It all started back in second grade…..DUN DUN DUN! I glued jolly ranchers to construction paper in the shape of a heart.Which she couldn’t eat because it was so covered in glue… So it just sat there… taped to the wall… collecting dust. Until eventually……..I stole all of the jolly ranchers. One by one.

Meanwhile, my sister (the kind with the neat handwriting that colors in the lines) gave her a stack of handmade coupons promising hour long foot massages. Really sis?!?!?! You gotta out do me by that much???

Then in third grade, I painted a terracotta pot for her to plant flowers in. It was a mess! I am not the most artistic girl around and crafts aren’t really my thing. I don’t remember her face when I handed it to her because I made sure not to look.

Ah yes. Then there was fourth grade. My class made knee pots for the mothers and mine was the most misshapen disaster that was ever placed on this earth. Seriously. Think of the ugliest possible clay pot made by a fourth grader you’ve ever seen. No, really. Take a minute to think about this.

It was 10 times worse than that.
