Two Bite Tuesday ~ Making it pretty and handy

I am all about easy and about finding ways that are attractive to store ingredients out in the open. This is going to be a quick post cause I've got a list a mile long today, but I wanted to share these sweet ideas with you.

1st Bite ~ I found this test tube spice rack over at Target...on sale...and I thought it would be fun to re-purpose it and use it for my decorator sugars and confetti. Cute huh?

Sugars for all seasons
I love that I can put all the Valentine decorations in the front row making it an instant holiday decoration as well as practical and handy to get to when I make those mini cupcakes later on.

2nd Bite ~ I've been using this ginger jar and these adorable Japanese style bowls for my breakfast bar for awhile now and I thought I would share them today. The bowls contain sliced almonds, granola, and dried cranberries right now. Sometimes I'll feel like walnuts or other dried fruits and I switch it out. I don't have to take up space in the pantry and this makes a nice little display on the kitchen island.

Breakfast ~ It does a body good! :-)
Hope you all are enjoying this crisp winter day. Enjoy a warm bowl of steel cut oats and bake some yummy cupcakes. It's that kind of day! ::-) ~Blessings, Janet

  5. Well, I'm already following, but I have to say look at you! You're mighty handy to have around the house I'd say! Very cool indeed. We're smack in the middle of a thunder & lightening snowstorm. Can you believe it? I've never heard of thunder & lightening when it's snowing. Unbelievable! Stay warm. I think I'll bake something tomorrow too just to warm up the house.
