Taming Chaos in the Kitchen

The Well-Ordered Kitchen Planner could not come at a better time of year–’tis the season for spring cleaning. My kitchen and pantry could use a serious overhaul.

Our pantry is still the dumping ground for random ‘things’ without a ‘home.’ Half empty paint cans, two crock pots, and a million dollars. Ok, maybe not….

Pulling my hair out trying to decide what to eat for dinner is a common occurrence in our household. Almost daily trips to the grocery store result frequently in buying main staples that lay forgotten in my chaotic kitchen. Sending out a culinary S.O.S.!

To the Rescue

The Well Ordered Kitchen Planner

Caroline and Sean Allen’s kitchen, recipe, and meal planning tool will reign in the chaos brewing in your kitchen. Some of the features I love include:

  1. Cheerful, colorful printables. Laminate, hole punch, and store on a binder ring for convenient and easy access. These adorable printables (designed like a mason jar) include ingredient substitutions, metric conversions, measuring equivalents, half measurement conversions (handy for when you want to ‘half’ a recipe!). If you purchase the deluxe version, you can also print recipe cards, labels, and more.
  1. Monthly/Weekly Menu Planning Pages. Stating the obvious, but just in case you were wondering….
  1. Cooking with herbs shows you which herbs pair best with which types of food. Organized by food category, ranging from appetizers & salads to fish & shellfish.
  1. Grocery store list. Prompts for commonly purchased ingredients, plus blank space to customize your list. I also love the pantry and freezer inventory lists. How many times have you purchased food only to realize you already have a ton of it in your freezer??
  1. Recipes and a Recipe List. Delicious meal ideas and easy to follow recipes. Mexican lasagna is sure to be a hit in my house! Use the Recipe List to track recipes you’ve tested. Make notes on how well they were received (and how to tweak them)!
  1. Kitchen chore checklist. The perfect tool for assigning age-appropriate tasks to children (or share the love with your spouse!)
  1. Hospitality Planner. Take the stress out of hosting dinner guests. I wish I had this when we lived in the Washington, DC metro region and provided home hospitality for the State Department’s International Visitor Leadership Program!

[Note to Self: The Hospitality Planner is a great motivational tool to finish unpacking from our move from Maryland to Pennsylvania and start setting up a new Airbnb listing!]

So, what are you waiting for? Sign up today for your deluxe version of The Well-Ordered Kitchen Planner! It would make an excellent gift for Mother’s or Father’s Day, hint, hint! Or tame the chaos in your kitchen.
