the Organized Life, the February Paint Bucket

The “Paint Bucket” is my bucket list of recipes that I want to try.  I compile this list near the 1st of every month, browsing my Pinterest boards, looking at virtual recipe boxes I have on allrecipes.com, the Food network, and Ziplist.  I also keep a master file of categorized recipes on my computer, that I have gotten from blogs, magazines, etc.  I spend some time thinking about what’s on the upcoming monthly calendar and then I put together a bucket list of recipes to try or to go to for inspiration.  It’s NOT a to do list, just an IDEA INSPIRATION page.

Here’s what I made from the January Paint Bucket

SEASONAL SIPPER, Janurary’s Seasonal Sipper,  CARAMEL BUTTERSCOTCH SMOOTHIE, will warm you up!

Hash Brown Cheddar Crisps turned into HASH BROWN MUFFINS, 4 WAYS!
