For the past few years, I’ve looked at pictures of cookies, cakes, breads and special desserts, and closed the magazine discouraged.
It’s not that I don’t like baking. I do.
But every time I tried to bake something, it was a lot of trouble My kitchen cabinet was a mess, with all my spices and herbs mixed together. Bottles filled with things that I knew were out of date. And I was never sure if I had the basics, so I would buy more.
This year I decided to attack the problem so I could enjoy some baking projects. In this post, I’ll share my mini weekend project. It only cost me $12 for a stepped-up shelf organizer.
1) I took everything out of the cabinet and sorted it by type of product.
2) I washed the cabinets.
3) I set aside things that were expired.
4) I combined duplicate products when I could.
5) I replaced items in the cabinet by type.
To celebrate my clean cabinet, I’m going to share some great dessert recipes, and introduce you to some of my favorite food sites in the coming weeks. To start, I want to tell you about Christy Jordan from The Southern Plate.
Last year she shared an amazing recipe on her site for Sweet Potato Creme Brulee. I managed to make it (motivated by the deliciousness of the photo) and it was worth the effort and calories.
Hope this post inspires you to do some kitchen reorganizing of your own!
