From allspice to cayenne pepper, spices are essential to even the most basic kitchen. While I've accrued more and more spices over the years, I certainly haven't amassed more kitchen storage space. I've decided that I need a set of spice jars, or a spice rack, to organize everything methodically and efficiently. Let's set off to market for a range of spice jars that are as decorative as they are useful. Bookmark your finds in the Yum Market with the keyword tag Spice Jars. I'm excited to see your finds!
According to Tony Abou-Ganim, citrus fruit used to make cocktails should be kept at room temperature. However, a bunch of citrus fruit rolling around on the counter while I cook is not pretty. Thus, I've decided to invest in a fruit bowl to properly hold (and display) the citrus. Can you help me find the perfect bowl? Look for pretty, stylish bowls that are large enough to fit several limes, lemons, or oranges, but small enough to sit on the kitchen counter without taking up too much space. Bookmark the bowls in the Yum Market on TeamSugar with the keyword tag, Fruit Bowl. Happy Hunting!

You looked for colorful and fun dishtowels that can be used to dry everything from old pots to long-stemmed champagne glasses. You saved your dishtowel discoveries in the Yum Market on TeamSugar with the keyword tag, Dish Towels.
