Confession: Most of my best ideas come straight from someone else.
Here’s one from my friend Shaunda, who does not follow her own advice.
(There’s a reason–In her kitchen, the drawers are bigger than she is. And they number exactly three. So she cheerfully hauls them around by the scruff of the neck, and passes her suggestions on to me. When I grow up, I hope to be like her.)
Meet my spice drawer, which I love. Everything stays organized and easy to reach. Voilà!
Today was a baking day, a vanilla and cinnamon day, a rich Texas sheet cake day.
And I have a new spice to add to my collection, as soon as it’s mellowed—fresh basil, now drying in a twine-hung bunch, grown by my friend Renee.
What’s your favorite kitchen organization trick?
