The Organized Life, September Paint Bucket


Hello September!

Here is my recipe inspiration list for September, a bucket list of things to try this month

I always choose many more recipes than I can possibly make, and often times they transition into something else entirely, but it’s handy to have a select group to pick from at my finger tips

You can see photos and recipes of the recipes below as well as the recipes from the August Paint Bucket on my Paint Bucket Pinterest Board here

The flavor of the month for September is Apple  🍏   🍎   🍏



Apple Bacon Cheddar Sliders from Will Cook for Smiles

Artichoke Bread from Closet Cooking

Baked Brie with Fig and Walnuts from the Mediterranean Dish


Cranberry Broccoli Almond Salad from My Recipes

Thai Peanut & Broccoli Stuffed Spaghetti Squash from Connoisseurus Veg

Pomegranate Pear Pistachio Salad from Carlsbad Cravings

Main Dish

Crunchy Almond Baked Chicken from Pack Momma

Grilled Lemongrass Beef Skewers from Café Sucre Farine

Frito Garden Pie from Miz Helen’s Country Kitchen

Chicken Cordon Bleu Lasagna from Chef in Training


Peach Puff Pastry Tartlettes from the Creative Life in Between

🍎   🍏   🍎

 Here’s what happened with the August Paint Bucket

My spiralizer got a workout in August making these tantalizing dishes:

Everything Bagel Spiralized Potato Chips from Inspiralized are oh so easy to make

Everything Potato Chips


Summer Squash and Bacon Galette from Food Network turned into a spiralized Summer Squash Galette with Tempura Onion Topping


Healthy Spiralized Baked Onion Rings from Inspiralized turned into Spiralized Onion and Pineapple Salsa, and this incredible cheeseburger



Cheddar Rosemary Spiralized Potato Pancakes from Inspiralized turned into Spiralized Onion & Potato Pie



We also enjoyed

Mac & Blue Cheese with a Pear Walnut Crusting from Don’t Go Bacon My Heart turned into Bleu Cheesy Mac w Pear Walnut Croutons




Summer Angel Hair Alfredo with Corn & Zucchini




Pineapple Crème Brûlée from HGTV turned into Coconut Pineapple Faux Créme Brûlèe



Tiramisu Bundt Cake with Kahula Marscapone Icing from Baking Bites turned into Tiramisu Bundt Cake with Kahlua Caramel


Be sure to check out my Fabulous Autumn Salads in case you missed it, it had the most views at Miz Helen’s Full Plate Thursday last week



My favorite thing about August was learning that the spiralizer can cut very thin slices like a mandolin

Also, if you don’t have a spiralizer, vegetable noodles are starting to pop up in the produce sections of grocery stores for added convenience, so keep your eyes open

Happy September!

  2. Love your Mackenzie bowl painting filled with flowers. I just did a card border yesterday with the black, Maybe it will be red, not white with it — haven’t decided! I think you Tote people are influencing me!

    Still have that Mac and cheese at the top of my list!

  3. Come try my Apple Donuts or Carmel Apple Coffee Cake. It is Apple Festival weekend in my small rural town, so apples are on my mind too.
