4 Wire & Metal Organizers for the Rustic Kitchen
I love the vintage, homey look of wire and antiqued metals. I’m not talking about foodservice-style chrome wire shelving (though that’s great for a utilitarian look, and I have a little unit in my dining room that’s currently holding an impressive array of pans and appliances). Today, I’m talking about the farmhouse-y , oxidized metal wall grids, egg baskets, shelves and racks that instantly give a lived-in feel to any kitchen.

Freezer Organization: Toss an Ice Tray or Two
Week #1 assignment in the Kitchen Cure is to clean out your fridge and pantry.

Old refrigerators (or, as in our case, brand new ones that don’t back up to a water source) don’t have automatic ice makers, so ice trays it is.

Would You Use a Glass Vase to Hold Kitchen Tools?

“Honey can you hand me the bottle of window cleaner? It’s right behind the bottle of stainless steel stuff but in front of the wood polish and next to the doggy carpet spray.” Sound familiar?

10 Practical Ideas for Better Spice Storage
Cumin, coriander, cardamom. Sichuan pepper. Cinnamon sticks, cinnamon powder. Nutmeg, allspice, black pepper and ginger. Fermented black beans, red pepper flakes. These are just a few of the spices in my cupboard — all well-loved and frequently used. Storage for my heaps of spices has been a chronic challenge in my little kitchen; they’ve been squirreled away in bags, stuffed into tiny jars, spilling loose grains to drift into mounds on the floor of the cupboard.

One Big Kitchen Tool We Have… But Never Use
Which common kitchen utensil do you think it is? We actually have two (maybe three) of this space-hogging tool, and as we thought about de-cluttering this week, we realized we never, ever use it. We bet you have at least one in your utensil holder, too…There are even two of them in the picture above.It’s a ladle. And we’re pretty sure almost all of you have one. Ladles are a mainstay in any utensil set, and they seem like such a no-brainer. You make soup? You need a ladle.

10 Reasons a Snow Day Is the Best Thing That Can Happen to Your Kitchen
Depending on where you live, a snow day is a quite common or decidedly uncommon occurrence.

Regardless, when a snow day is finally called, it’s kind of great. Staying inside is basically mandatory, all routines get upended, and while you may have to work from home, you’re still likely to end up with a bit of time on your hands.
