The Organized Life, September Paint Bucket

September already?

Football Season! There will be a lot of finger food on this month’s list!

This is a list of recipes I am going to use for cooking inspirations this month, a little thinking ahead and organizing makes menu and meal planning so much quicker for me~ and helps inspire me to create new dishes~

Instead of making The Best Ever Vanilla Cupcakes from the Cafe le Sucre Farine [which I am definitely still going to make] I made Vanilla Scones with Cranberries, Apricots and Pecans for the Secret Recipe Club

I would have to say my favorite recipe this month was Breakfast on a Stick, it was as much fun to make as it was to eat!

I hope you’ll try some of these recipes and be inspired to put your own twist on them~


I will be sharing with the fabulous parties and blogs on my side bar and
