This post is the third in a short series I’ll be doing this month on the blog called “A Baker’s Dozen.” Each week, I’ll share a post with 13 (get it?) tips, tricks and/or tools to help you become a better baker (though I think you’re pretty great already). Today’s post: My top 13 tips for organizing baking supplies. Enjoy!
I am back from a week’s vacation to Jamaica and Haiti and all I can say is COOOOOLLLLLDDD. Like, 80 degrees colder than where I was just 48 hours ago. Like, takes-one’s-breath-away cold. Like, one of the windows in our house shattered because it was. so. cold., and a wall in another room has ice crystals forming on it (I’m serious). Sometimes I wonder why I live in Minnesota and not on that beautiful island beach on which I was sipping slushy drinks just mere days ago. WHY.
Alas, crazy as it may be, this is home and so here I am, waist-high in blankets and neck-high in a scarf wearing fleece-lined leggings and wool socks, writing to you from the tundra about my top 13 tips for organizing baking supplies (in small spaces!). My kitchen may be tiny, but I’ve learned over the years how to make the most of my few available cabinets, one of which is dedicated entirely to my baking supplies. Lately, another cabinet seems to be completely dedicated to my husband’s and daughter’s love of crackers and chips, but that’s another post entirely.14
