30+ Back to School Recipes

Summer’s coming to halt pretty quickly, which means switching from relaxation and slow days to get-things-done and fast paced schedules. This time of year is usually not fun if you don’t know how to make things easy. Kids getting frustrated about going to bed earlier, being responsible for their school supplies, and waking up earlier. While it’s not that much easier on me either, with helping teach the younger children, doing my own schoolwork, blogging, shopping, and cooking.

I will be even busier if I get this bakery job I’m trying to get. So it’s not an option to make things like Cheeze Blintz, Baked French Toast, or Pancakes. Oh gosh. Not the pancakes. They take FOREVER to make enough for my family and the meal is done being devoured in minutes!  Oh, no. When it comes to this time of year I need recipes that are relatively fast and easy to make. So I have come up with a list of 30+ recipes to solve those back to school problems.

Beef Stroganoff

Normally my mother is the one to make the beef stroganoff. But last yesterday she was at the hospital all day with my great grandfather a.k.a. “Bumpa”  (love that guy) so I was left to make it by myself. I don’t know why but I was always scared to make it. Kinda like my weird fear of serving lasagna…don’t judge.

Refried beans and I…..we go way back. From quick dinners in my recital days, to the broken hearts of middle school (oh lawdy), refried beans have always been my comfort food of choice.

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!
