Organizational Tips Rice Storage in the Kitchen Pantry
Hi everyone, it's Alejandra. And in this tutorial, I just want to give you guys a quick tip for storing your rice in the pantry. So this is where I have all my dry goods inside the pantry. If you want to see my full pantry tour I did a while ago, you can watch the tutorial. I will put a link to it at the bottom of the tutorial. But yeah, this is my dry goods. So my tip for this tutorial is if you have a lot of rice like I do here, let me just shift.
All the containers and then I will show you exactly what this looks like. So if you have a lot of rice, I have like five or six varieties, white rice, there is basmati rice, jasmine rice, wild rice, that's red quinoa, and then brown rice. So what you don't want to do is I mean you can do this but I feel like I don't want to do this because it takes up a lot of space, is have all these little containers for each single rice like it's going to take up so much space. You have to go out and buy more.
Containers. So what I did here was I put all of my different varieties of rice into a Ziploc bag just like this and then I cut the outside of the original bag out and I taped it to the front of the Ziploc bag so I know exactly what is what. So brown rice is right there, red quinoa right there, and so forth. So now, all of the rice is inside one airtight container just like that. It's sorted by category, it's easy to access, and it saves room because everything.
HowTo Make a Kitchen Centerpiece from your Container Garden with Carmen Johnston
Hi, I'm Carmen Johnston and we are gonna show you how to make a small centerpiece for your kitchen table from this container garden. Don't be afraid to snip from your container garden, it allows all the energy to go toward the new growth. The three plants, we are gonna clip from are Snapdragon, Rosemary and Heuchera. All which are perfect to make a Fall centerpiece. First, we're gonna snip some Snapdragon, you wanna make sure when your cutting that you get a nice long stem, that way it reaches the water. We're gonna cut three.
Pieces one for each glass. music We're simply going to place this directly in the center. Just like this. And we're gonna continue to do the same thing for the other two glasses. music Next, we are gonna cut a total of five Heuchera leaves for each glass. Again, remember to make sure to look for a nice long stem to cut on so the bottom of the stem can reach the water. music You're simply going to add the five leaves along the sides just like this. music.
Another really cool thing that you can do with the Heuchera is just don't show the green side, remember to show the undercarriage of it. It's a beautiful purple fall color. The last plant we are going to clip from our container garden for our arrangement is Rosemary. This is so fragrant and it will last for a really long time and it really fun to cook with too. music Try to cut a piece that is nice and long and wiry because it adds a flair off to the side.
Colorful Kitchen Accessories The Garden Home Challenge With P. Allen Smith
Hey, why not decorate your kitchen with candy It tastes good too. You watched us design and build this house in 150 days, but the work is far from over. We're about to jump into my favorite part of the process of bringing all this together. Join me for an exclusive look right here on eHow Home. You know, my whole thinking behind this house and particularly this kitchen was to introduce this idea of farmhouse chic. You know, where you have elements of a farm, but you also have some really cool, new, fresh ideas going on like bold color.
You know, there's ways you can accessorize a kitchen that make it really more than a place where come and get a sandwich or you eat or you wash dishes. I mean, it ought to have some style, right And you can do that by adding just a few little decorative touches in the way of accessories. Like, for instance, this really gorgeous cookware in lots of different colors. Hey, let the color pop. One of the reasons we did all white in here with that really dark brown floor and these butcher block cabinet tops was that we have a neutral.
Background to hang color throughout the room. Of course, I use a lot of white dishes as well. Which reminds me, you know, it doesn't have to be a dish that you use everyday. Take, for instance, over here, I've got a beautiful, old, vintage soup terrine that I found. Hey, I might use it two or three times a year, but it looks great sitting up on the open shelves. You know, using open shelves like this is a great way to create visual interest. And, hey, speaking of vintage, I'm jazzing things up with some old things like this scale.
In the corner or even this classic old mold in the shape of a lamb. Hey, it's perfect, particularly when it's juxtaposed with some really cool dishes like these with polka dots. Look at the colors in these, look at them really closely. I wanna show you what I've done over here with some apothecary jars. So all you have to do to bump up the color is, well, coordinate it with a dish you might happen to have. I'm taking the polka dots in this example and matching them with candy in these apothecary jars. Hey, jelly beans,.
Orange slices, blue MM's, and licorice they all work with this. Hey, another thing you can think about is adding some house plants in the kitchen. House plants don't have to be relegated to other rooms. A kitchen's a great place because there's a lot of water in the kitchen, it raises the humidity, they love it. And why stop there Why not think about your kitchen towels, coordinate them with the room Do something colorful and something that boosts the charm factor. I just love these chickens. So, are you seeing how things.
New Kitchen Moving Storage Tips New Kitchen Pantry Container Storage
My name is Abby Jones and I am talking about the process of moving into a new apartment or a new space and setting up that space in an efficient way. Right now I'm talking about the kitchen area and specifically the pantry, and different things you might be putting in your pantry and how to organize them. So I am in my pantry which is a little bit of an odd space here and something that I'm keeping in my pantry is, are my dry goods. I have my dry goods in these glass containers that you can get at organizational stores, craft.
Stores, estate sales, garage sales. These are really easy and cheap to find, and a good way to keep your dry goods fresh and not, keep them away from humidity. So I have those here on the top shelf because they're easy to get to, everything fits in this space right here. I already used up all of my cabinet space in the center of my kitchen with dishes so I didn't, and herbs and spices, so I didn't have any space out there for these things. And I don't have very much counter space either. Although other places I've lived, I have put.
These things out on the counter for the aesthetic value of those. So that's another thing that you could do if you found jars that you liked how they looked. Another reason why I chose to put them in here is my pantry, the air doesn't actually circulate very well in here, because I don't have central air and heat and so I thought that these things would be a good thing to keep in the pantry as opposed to herbs and spices which are temperature sensitive, more so than things like popcorn.
Kitchen Container Labeling
Keep a permanent marker and paper tape on hand in the kitchen. This helps you name and date leftovers and opened jars. You can also use your permanent marker to write directly on top of aluminum foil. Or you can use your paper tape by labeling on top of a jar or on top of any storage container. Also, if you don't have the date available on some of your condiments, then go ahead and label straight on top of those as well. Also, remember that most leftovers can be stored for up to 3 to 4 days after you've packed them up.
Gardening Tips Flowers How to SmallContainer Garden Kitchen Herbs
Hi this is Yolanda Vanveen and in this segment we're going to talk about how to small container garden using kitchen herbs. Now there's all different types of herbs in the world, and so when I decide what types of herbs to put in my small kitchen herb garden, I always look through my drawers and find out, and my cabinets, what types of herbs do I use in my house. And then I decide from there. And remember that you have to give your herb some light, so you've gotta select a room that's got enough light. So if you have a.
Kitchen that only has one window, you might count on artificial light because they really want more than one window of light. And I found that they do best in the morning sun. Sometimes if it's in a hot afternoon sun location, they get kind of fried when the sun comes through. So, think about those prospects or those aspects when you're designing your garden. This herb garden's been outside, it has been on my deck, and we just trim that back, the plants, as we need 'em and now it's starting to freeze at night, so I want to try to get.
Them to live through the winter. So I brought 'em inside and they might go through a little bit of shock and I might lose a little bit of 'em, but so far they're looking good. And this is spearmint. I love to use it with tea, or ice water. It's a great plant and then there's different types of thyme which are great with any kind of meat or lamb. And then oregano is wonderful with any kind of pizza sauce or spaghetti sauce, and then there's other types of rosemary and tarragon, I love tarragon too. It's a great, great addition.
To any type of beef. So a kitchen garden or a small herb garden is really easy to create and you don't really need to have property or need to even have a patio. As long as you have a sunny window, you can find the herbs that you enjoy and just put 'em on a windowsill. You can just put one container on a plate, and the windowsill as well. Water 'em well, but let 'em dry out in between 'cause you don't want to let 'em sit in water. And trim.
Food Storage Container Lids Together, or Separate Clutter Tutorial Tip
Hey, it's Lorie Marrero and today's Clutter Tutorial Tip is about the surprisingly controversial food storage containers. The controversy is about whether to POP store your containers and your lids separately or together. And I really believe it's a little bit of both. I think that nesting is the most efficient way in general to store something POP, like these are nested together, and then I like to keep the lids separate over here in a little simple shoebox that I can flip through and find the right lid. But sometimes if I have.
A really large container that has a large lid, I'll just store it right underneath so that it stays out of the way. So when you go to POP organize your food storage containers, the first thing you want to do is match up each container with its own lid. And then you'll end up with what we call orphans. Some lids without containers, some containers without lids. You want to batch all those orphans up together into a plastic bag or a box, put POP a date on it, and store it on a lower shelf somewhere and keep it for.
Just a couple of weeks to make sure you get everything out of rotation from your refrigerator or your dishwasher and make sure that you really don't need those. Then after that, you can donate the orphans POP or recycle them.And by the way, the major manufacturers of food storage containers have made it a little easier for us with a little code number or letter on the bottom of the lids and the containers that you can match up and confirm that you've got the right one.So where do you stand on this controversy Go attack your.
The Zen of Kitchen Sinks Day 129 The Garden Home Challenge With P. Allen Smith
They say an ecofriendly house can't be built in 150 days for $150,000, and I say it can. I'm Allen Smith, join me as I push the limits with time, budget and creativity with the Garden Home Challenge, exclusively on eHow Home. You know, I have to say, this is one of the most compelling corners of the house, because the light comes through here, and it's so wonderful. And I don't know about you, but when I wash dishes, I love to look out a window. So here in the kitchen, we wanted to make sure we had a window that faced good.
Light and this has southern light. And you can stand here and you wash your hands you have to pretend here that we have water, because we don't yet. Washing your hands, letting the water run over your hands you see this beautiful view, and it just puts you in trancelike state. Okay, let's get past all the Zen talk and talk about what's going on here with this kitchen, because I'm so excited to finally have this stainless steel sink installed. You can see, we have brushed stainless steel basin. We have a highly.
Polished chrome faucet. Now, these metal surfaces reflect the other metal in the room. So the brushed stainless steel, you see over here with the appliances. Ha, we got the microwave in lookin' good. And the highly polished chrome surface, you can see with some of our hardware on the cabinets that's going in. And then, of course, our ceiling, which I'm very proud of. Which is just barn tin we did it for like a 150 bucks. You try to put in a ceiling in kitchen for 150 bucks and see what you come up with. I just love it.
Now, let's look at the configuration of this particular faucet What I like about this is that it comes up and arcs. If you need to pull down, you can with this. But what I like is having all this space in here, so if you got big roasting pans or something like that, you can soak them in this large basin. And you have enough space, here to here, where you can maneuver things in and out, which I think is really important. You see, the function of a kitchen, I think, plays a critical role in the design. For instance,.
We're going from cold to wet. Cold, meaning, here's our refridgerator. To wet dishwasher, sink. Over to heat, over here, with our range and our microwave. The other thing you need to keep in mind if you're gonna buy sink is that it needs to be durable. I mean, for instance, you can't just put a porcelain sink in there because of all the banging around I mean, think about a castiron skillet if you're trying to wash it in there. So you need a castiron sink that's enameled white or a different color that would be a choice.
Kitchen Island Solution The Garden Home Challenge With P. Allen Smith
You've seen our butcher block countertops for the kitchen, but wait till you see the latest addition. You watched us design and build this house in 150 days, but the work is far from over. We're about to jump into my favorite part of the process of bringing all this together. Join me for an exclusive look right here on eHow Home. You know, there's just something about having unique pieces of furniture or objects in your house that, I don't know, they just add a certain look and feel they're great conversation pieces.
Take, for instance, this It's a butcher block, perfect for the kitchen. I love this thing. It's got a vintage look. Found it in an antique shop in Memphis. It's one of those warehouse antique mall kinda places. And I was prowling around and looked at the back wall and there it was just rolled up on its side. I thought, that's a butcher block. And it had three legs that went with it, and they were there. So I bought it. I just couldn't leave it there. So I wanted to use it as a center island in this kitchen. The kitchen is really not that.
Large I didn't have enough room for an island. But I thought, what about make it mobile By making it moveable, it actually solved a problem for me. If you look down here, you can see that, well, the butcher block originally was only 30 inches high. So I had Tony make this triangular shaped platform for this to sit on. So the tripod, or the three legs, would be positioned here, here and here, all equidistant from one another. And then to raise it up just a little more, I put it on casters. Well, this makes it very.
Convenient because now I can move it around the room anywhere I want. And you can lock these casters down and it can be a stationary piece in this space. By raising the butcher block up like this, I was able to get this surface level close to the same level as the counter tops in the kitchen, so it makes another workspace in this area. You know, what's wonderful about this is that it's 42 inches in diameter that was a big tree. This thing probably goes back to the 1890s, and it has a really nice patina on the side where it was white.
Favorite Kitchen Organizing Products Clutter Tutorial Tip
Hi, I'm Lorie Marrero and I'm coming to you today from the floor at The Container Store. I'm in the kitchen department to show you today's POP Clutter Tutorial Tip, which is my favorite kitchen products that you can't find really anywhere else. I have the first one to show you this looks like a normal doubledecker turntable, but what's unusual about it is that the top level actually splits and you can have POP tall things here, shorter things here, and really maximize that vertical space in your cabinet. So love.
Turntables. And you can get here one of the largest turntables I have ever seen POP, and it's fantastic for those deep, dark corner cabinets where you can't reach things in the back very easily and you don't have already a builtin lazy susan, you just plop this right in, you can put this under your sink as well, any other deep dark cabinet area, and you can even use this for indoor plants or something like that too so, very useful and unusual. POPThese are vertical sorters. Now, these come in all different.
Shapes and sizes. I have a wood one and a metal one here to show you, but they are taller, shorter, wider, all kinds of variations. And they're great for anything you need to store vertically like cookie sheets or trays or even in an office environment, maybe you have envelopes that you want to separate out. So, these are a great solution, too. Next we have the Magnetic Knife Holder. Now, it says knife holder, but you actually can use this in a lot of different places. So you mount it on the wall and then you can use it in the.
POP workbench area in the garage for tools. You can also use it in a craft room for craft supplies, metal cutting tools, and scissors and things like that. But it's a very utilitarian thing. You just put it up there and slap whatever metal thing you want onto it and it will hold it very tight. POPAnd lastly we have the Lid Maid. Now, I've never seen this anywhere else. I love putting these into kitchen cabinets to hold the lids to pots and pans. And you may have seen this in my other Clutter Tutorial Tip about organizing pots and pans. POP.
It slides in and out of your cabinet and holds all the pot lids up vertically, just like we were talking about, and, you know, it's really great because of the sliding in and out feature, you can reach things easily and installs very quickly as well. So, I hope you like these product selections today. And if you want some more great tips you can go to our free tips page at clutterdietfreetips. See you next time, and may you always be happy and grateful for having more than enough.
