The Organized Life, Recipe Tabs Update

I recently did a quick calculation of my recipes and found that I have posted around 1000!

The general recipe index, alphabetically by category, had become so long it was no longer user friendly

I have reorganized it and divided it into sections, you can see all the new tabs in the header above

Most categories have a direct link to a Pinterest board photo gallery for visual reference also

Recipes   This tab is the master list of all recipes, in alphabetical order by title, in each category


Recipes/Appetizers & Pizzas   This tab will take you to a list of all appetizers, pizzas, flatbread, condiments.  It is divided into sections such as finger foods, dips, bites etc.



Recipes/Breakfast, Brunch and Breads  The recipes under this tab are divided into sections of Sweet bread, Savory bread, Breakfast Casseroles, Sweet rolls, Danishes and Pastries and Miscellaneous



Recipes/Desserts  This tab is divided into sections, Cookies & Bars,  Bites Dumplings & Pastries, Cake, Cupcakes, Cheesecake, Ice Cream & Parfaits, Pies Tarts and Galettes and Miscellaneous



Recipes/Entrees is divided into many sections, including, Chicken, Meats, Seafood, Casseroles, Pasta, Slow cooker and Vegetarian



Recipes/Gifts features recipes called “gifts from the kitchen,” food items, baskets and wrapping ideas



Recipes/Salad, Soup & Sides  is divided into Salads, Soups, Pasta, Potatoes, Rice & Risotto, Stuffing & Grits




Recipes/Vegetables & Savory Pies has an alphabetical list of vegetable recipes as well as a section for Savory Quiche & Pies



Note: you can also search for recipes by entering key words or ingredients in the search box below the calendar in the right side bar

I have also updated the Party Panache and Tablescapes Pages, with parties and ideas divided into holidays, seasons, themes etc.


I hope this will help make it easier to browse and to find what you’re looking for!

  1. Way to go, Jenna. I know you feel very accomplished getting all those recipes organized. It looks great.

  2. That had to take LOADS of time. But really terrific. I periodically go through updating pages spurts and find it makes me a little crazy but time to do it again. So, you will be my motivating force! If Janna can do it with 1000 recipes, I can do it with far fewer things in a category!

    By the way, have to tell you how much I love your food painting at the top here. I’ve been trying to practice drawing more food lately for a family cookbook project and sometimes its a little harder than it looks! So, double inspiration today!

    • Thank you Jeanie it did take a while, but it kept me distracted as we were watching and worrying about all the hurricanes lately. I got tired of scrolling through the index looking for stuff myself! I love to paint and draw food, and remember it doesn’t have to be realistic~ a family cookbook with your artwork will be fabulous and cherished by all I am sure!

    Thank-you! That must have taken forever to do!!! LOL All of my recipes are listed chronologically on my recipes page….no semblance of order at all!!!

  4. Wow, Jenna, have you considered publishing a cookbook? Great recipes with beautiful photography and your gorgeous artwork, I’d buy one!

  5. Leslie Anne Tarabella says:

    It makes me feel good to see other people organized, because heaven knows I need inspiration! I love all your categories and look forward to being able to just click- and find. I’ve searched your site before by topic, but this will be much better! Thanks!

  6. I usually come to your blog with a full tummy, but I always leave salivating. You have the best recipes, Jenna. That was a HUGE job and well done, Jenna. Have a great week!

  7. Cynthia Raines says:

    What a great accomplishment! Thanks! I like it!

  8. Jenna, posting 1000 recipes is an amazing feat and now to go back and reorganize is also amazing. Organization is so hard for me, so I am so impressed. I agree with Carole – publish a cookbook!

  9. Jodi says:

    wow – great job organizing them. I’m sure I need to do the same, but…. LOL! not nearly as organized as you 🙂

  10. I’m tired just thinking about all the work you did! I am so impressed. Sigh, I can’t get through my inbox each day.

  11. I don’t know how you do it….But I think you are responsible for my weight gain!!

  12. thefrenchhutch says:

    Great organization for your recipes and art. Love the look and love the ease at finding what I need in a jiffy. Thanks Jenna, I know this took you awhile……….

  13. Sandra Garth says:

    Congrats on getting everything in order. For the longest, I’ve said this is what I need to do but I’ve been avoiding it like the plague. Fingers crossed that I get motivated and get it started.
