How To Save Your Recipes?

Those of you familiar with my blog know that when it comes to figuring out ways to save time and maximize productivity, I live for it.

You can save these recipes to Pinterest, book-mark-em, or even just collect them in an excel spreadsheet if you’re super organized like that.

Or you can use Trello to save your recipes.

What the fuck is Trello?

Trello is like a digital bulletin board with post-it notes.

It’s a way of organizing ideas, project management, or to-do lists for teams or individuals. I use Trello for everything for this blog, for keeping tabs on Christmas gift ideas for my kids

With the aid of easy Chrome extensions and a few other hacks I figured out, I can quickly create a week of meal ideas, a shopping list (with all the ingredients I usually buy along with all the stuff I need for these new Chicken sheet pan recipes) in about 10 minutes.

With the aid of Instacart, my shopping is done in about 30 minutes for the week and I can get back to whatever it is we’re doing this day in a pandemic.

Combined with the red onions and crispy chicken, this is an awesome flavor-alternative when you’re sick of figuring out what to make for dinner.
