    My pickiest eater is my youngest. Been picky from the day she was born. Yes, she would stop breastfeeding give you a "What??" look if you had eaten anything strange recently. She drowns all her food in ranch dressing. So we gave up trying to please her and make the food the way we like as...

    I usually buy large containers of all of these (because the price per ounce was cheaper) and break them down into smaller containers. I store the large containers in my basement on shelves where I keep my stockpile. The vinegars hot sauce & oils get downsized via funnels into old clean soy sauce...

    I have a lazy susan style spice rack that holds 16 spice jars. I also have lots of excess packs of spices and half-opened bags, which are all tied up into an old grocery store shopping bag. I need a better way of storing these extra bags of spices. But how? Thanks in advance. :)

    I love grinding my own spices. I've thought about buying an electric grinder to use exclusively for spices but prefer using my mortar and pestle. I always smile thinking of some mad scientist or witch as I'm grinding away,lol. Kids have this evil bat like creature finger puppet that they put on...

    Rosemary is one I just can't deal with. I've done the roasted potatoes with rosemary and it's overrated. :P Several ways. I know there is a love/hate out there for Cilantro but I find the stuff absolutely yummy. Oh and Basil rocks my socks. I need to cut back on salt big time too. I don't...

    I have a lot and right now they are in a cute basket on the counter next to the stove. It's really not ideal but I have no cabinet space for them. I've seen some people put them in drawers and it's easy and organized just to pull them out, but it's that space thing with my kitchen. So how do...
  13. Discount Stores
    I always try to remember to grab all my spices there, .50 for a container vs. the $3+ at the grocery store- went the other day, saw they are now .88! Still a bargain, but when I did the math of what percentage increase that was....well, I guess nothing is inflation proof!
  14. Calculations and Alternatives
    We all know that most of the time, a spice is offered in loose quantities in the bulk section of the supermarket and there's a prepackaged alternative sold in another area of the same store. Things like salt, pepper, flour, sugar, etc are these types of items. If it's used to flavor a food, it's...

    I while redoing kitchen I have ended up with a space next to the gas range. I am deciding what to do with the pull out shelf going into that space 8 inches wide ( inside) spices have been mentioned but would that shorten their life ?? It does not feel hot when baking
  18. Creative Cooking
    I bought a huge stack of spices(I think they are called dry, as they are dried out and come in containers). Most of these spices taste like dirt. The parsley smells nothing like the fresh one. The dill and the coriander have the same disgusting smell. I don't know about the other spices because...
