The Organized Life, May Paint Bucket


Happy May!

May is packed full of fun occasions,

May Day, Cinco de Mayo, Derby Day,

Mother’s Day and Memorial Day!



This month instead of choosing a flavor to feature

I am going to feature a type of recipe

The flavor/theme of the month is Muffin Tin!

Lots of tasty muffin sized bites for all the May occasions

grab and go, snacks, everyday or party food

This bucket list has a medley of flavors perfect for all the May holidays
