Kitchen Tip Tuesdays

I keep my spices in a deep drawer. This means that the labels are hidden and I only see the top of the jars. I used to spend a lot of time rifling through trying to find the "right" spice. Then I discovered a great short cut! With a sharpie, I wrote the name, or an abbreviation, on the top of each jar. Now I can see exactly where each spice is. No more guessing, and it saves a lot of time and frustration!

  1. This is a great tip! Thanks!

  2. I do this too, since my husband sous-chef would never find them otherwise!

  3. I have a pantry door ( a closet for clothes near the front door)turned into a pantry with shelves..I took a over the door shoe rack & all my spices go in that for quick use :O) including the cans of sprays/ packets of Taco/ Enchilada or gravy mix :O)
