If you have been reading this blog for more than five minutes you know I don’t really cook.
When they were handing out the cooking gene, they skipped me and gave me extra decorating genes to make up for it.
I might not be about cooking, but I am a whole lot about entertaining. We have people drop by all the time for coffee and house tours and drop cloth drape advice and general conversation. And sometimes all that conversation can make a person hungry. So lately I’ve been on the quest for simple, easy, ideas on how to entertain at a moments notice. I asked for easy recipes and you shared them and I took notes.
Along the way?
I discovered something amazing.
It’s so easy to make the simplest dishes look fancy.
All you need is a little spice.
Spices like parsley and cinnamon and garlic salt and oregano and Italian spices are my new best friends.
Especially when I’ve found the perfect way to organize them.
It’s portable and the wood is beautiful and it looks so farmhouse there are 18 individual glass bottles with satin metal lids. Whenever or wherever you are cooking or baking it just comes along with you.
There are spices in the jars now and I printed out these labels and attached them to the jars and now my spices are organized.
And the best part?
Now? We are all ready for company.
When I’m not using it—it just sits on the counter like this.
Waiting for the party to arrive.
The spices look so farmhouse and so organized all at the same time.
We’re so all about our cute organized self that we made a vegetable dip at a moment’s notice.
Literally five minutes.
The spices were there and calling my name and I pulled a few ingredients out of the fridge and made this for company.
1/4 cup of butter (softened)
3/4 cup of sour cream
1/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese
1 1/2 teaspoons of Italian spices
Just mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.
Then serve with fresh vegetables.
My kitchen and I.
Organized and ready to go.
Add in a little spice and we are a party waiting to happen. 🙂
