The Organized Life, The September Paint Bucket


Although it will still feel like summer in Alabama until mid October or so,

my thoughts for September are all about fall flavors and traditional Autumn food

When I started seeing maple recipes popping up on Pinterest,

my mouth started watering

I quickly decided Maple would be the flavor of the month!

There are a lot of football watching food recipes on the list

College football officially kicks off this weekend!




You can see photos and links to the recipes below

in the September section of

 Monthly Pinterest board here

Here’s what I made from the August Paint Bucket

The flavor/theme for August was Retro Redone


Pizzas have come a long way over the years, and here is my version, Retro Redone, of a traditional cheese pizza

This was inspired by Roasted Tomato Basil Pizza from Mantitlement and Heirloom Tomato Tart with Everything Spice from Half Baked Harvest

Fresh Tomato & Basil Flatbread



Not Just for Thanksgiving Stuffing, based on my mother’s stuffing,

Sausage & Corn Stuffing Casserole





Not the Same Quiche Lorraine is certainly different with the addition of peaches and plums

Summer Peach Quiche Lorraine



Turkey Tetrazzini is a classic dish and I have made several versions, the latest being Asparagus, Corn & Spinach Tetrazzini



Tetrazzinis are a great way to elevate leftovers into a meal worthy of a dinner party! You might also want to try my Chicken Tetrazzini, Ham Tetrazzini, Italian Tetrazzini, Loaded Tetrazzini



Peanut Butter Pretzel Pie from Lil’ Luna was the inspiration for OMG This Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie and was featured on Tasty Tuesday, hosted by Blogghetti





Raspberry & Cream Danish from Kitty’s Kozy Kitchen was the inspiration for Better Than A Bakery Jammin’ Cream Cheese Danish

These are dangerously easy to make and were featured on Wonderful Wednesday hosted by Oh My Heartsie Girl



I also made Crunchy Manchego & Fig Cheese Straws from Food Network

My version, Sweet and Savory Fig Canapes are delightful bites of cheese, fig spread and pastry



Also if you need an idea for an easy Labor Day Spread

    You are so organized Jenna! I need to put my recipes in a file by the seasons. September will be a yummy fun month for you.

    • I have found that if I have a master list for the month, I get so much more done and try new and different things, looking forward to trying some of these! Thank you Deb!

  3. I love maple. So I’m glad this is your new flavor. Will any fig jam do for the pastry bites? I don’t know that I’ve ever seen the ones you showed in that post.
