A Spicy Life


One of the really great things I appreciate in my kitchen is my spice drawer. When we first bought our home, I realized I had the blessing of many kitchen drawers so I immediately decided to dedicate one of them to store my spices.

I know this isn’t really a treasure the way we might normally think of that word, but its location in the island is right at the place I do most of the work in mixing and putting my recipes together. It is right next to the stove as well.

So, to me, this drawer has proven to be a real treasure because of its convenient location. I know it looks like a hodgepodge of stuff, but it’s pretty much alphabetically organized and I can find what I’m looking for very quickly. Here’s a little closeup:

Out of sight but within easy reach. Now that’s the kind of kitchen organization I like!
