Admittedly, I am a bit of an organizational freak. Like many chefs and cooks, I love/need a clean kitchen before I dig into a new recipe or pull out a tried and true dish that I can make with my eyes closed. Even if you have only a tiny kitchen, if it is well stocked and organized you can make anything with ease as long as the right ingredients are at hand!
I'm starting this spring cleaning frenzy with the panty. I love these ingredients labels that popped up on Pinterest from The Creativity Exchange. Jo from Zuer Designs created these labels. I ordered the clear sticker sheets and I will be printing these beautiful hand-lettered labels to keep all of my baking basics labeled and lovely.
I'm also seem to have an abundance of glassware, specifically jars from Italy and France.
I have a substantial collection of Bonne Maman preserves jars and I use them for organizing everything from small utensils and cupcake papers to spices and cinnamon sticks. They are sweet looking with the red gingham lids and handy to use.
Whatever containers you have to use, I think clear is best and sprucing them up with these labels will do just the trick. I look forward to a clean, neat and organized pantry this spring!
Welcome to my first post! It's short 'n sweet and I will definitely be back for more. "If I knew you were coming I'd have baked a cake" was a song that my mom taught me as a young girl. She sang songs all the time, and I'm sure she sang this one while actually baking a cake. I think about it every time I pop a sheet cake, a tin of cupcakes or the like into the oven.
Here's a well known version of the song - Enjoy!
