Spice Jar Project

If there's one place I find myself quite often this season, it's in the kitchen - I just love to cook. I love puttering around, creating something delicious to share. An important part of cooking, is seasoning and when it comes to spices, fresh is best. But fresh isn't always the easiest choice. So having good, fresh, dried spices on hand is key to well-seasoned dishes.
Since I'll be using them so much more than usual in the coming weeks, I wanted to make sure that my spices are all fresh. Since I was going through everything anyway, I figured I would tackle a little spice rack makeover that I've wanted to do for a while now. Previously, my spices were in tiny jars, tucked in alphabetical order in a little drawer by my stove. It was starting to annoy me because nothing ever stayed in alphabetical order and the jars were so small, I was constantly refilling then and always had numerous opened packets of spices in my cupboards. It was inefficient.
So, my solution. A simple little spice rack tucked beside my stove. I picked the 6 spices I use most often (not including the fresh ones I have growing in my kitchen) and filled larger jars that I already had on hand. I had bought this little chipped white carrier at a sale one time and never really had a use for it until now! The jars fit perfectly. I added some labels with twine and voila! - my new spice rack.

  1. Another trait of a reproduction hublot replica is if it has a transparent case back again permitting the movement to become observed. Rolex Mens never created such a view, an exception becoming some designs in the tag heuer replica uk which are exceptionally rare plus the new Cellini Price designs. You can by no means see an authentic rolex replica sale with the engraved corporation brand, style or Rolex Mens identify on the outside from the caseback. Exceptions to this are a few in the lady's models that have rolex replica sale around the situation backs, as well as the Sea-Dweller models which say in black around the back replica watches sale together with two Rolex Mens logos. Other than that, genuine Rolex Mens watches possess an easy rolex replica sale free of engravings.
