I love our spice drawer which I created after seeing a different post. Each jar lies flat on a tray and I have 4 trays on 2 levels in the drawer. They are in alphabetical order with a list in each tray. It's not perfect yet but it is a huge improvement over how we previously stored them in a second shelf cabinet where I had to practically empty the shelf to get what I wanted.

I also like this spice drawer that has the spices standing upright with their names visible: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/463167142900759330/

A great suggestion no matter how long ago it was posted! This was the perfect easy accompaniment to our family dinner of curried tofu and brown rice. Today we'll enjoy the leftovers. It's now bookmarked on my pinterest board.
Thanks for the recipe.

Just cleaned an oil burned pot (from burnt popcorn) using this method modified by advice from previous commenters. I first boiled water with vinegar and let stand - this works for cleaning hard water stains from our teapot. Then I emptied the pot and sprinkled 1 tbsp. baking soda over the stains and scrubbed lightly. Perfectly clean and shiny pot once again.
