Ramblings Thoughts, Video Review, Review, Seasoning, Spice, Kitchen, No msg, Nature's Seasons, Mortons
So, I spend a bunch of time in the kitchen, whether it is in my own or at work and with this in mind, I am always experimenting with spices to make the flavor of a meal that much better.  Needless to say, this has lead me to have over 20 spices at my house.  However, I tend to be busy most of the time and don't have time to play around with the spices as much as I would like to when I am cooking for myself so finding a great all purpose seasoning that can be my go-to has been my mission for awhile now.

Thanks to my friend Katie Yoxall, who first introduced it to me, I have found an all purpose seasoning, Morton Nature's Seasons.  Click the video below to check out my thoughts on this seasoning.  Before you leaving leave me a comment on your thoughts.  Have you tried this seasoning?  Do you have a favorite seasoning or spice that you would like to share?

Organization & Space Saving Tip: Bathroom Storage

I don't know about y'all but I hate going into my bathroom and seeing a bunch of shampoo, conditioner, body wash and other bottles on the floor next to the tub or on the tub because there is not enough room to put it all on any shelves that are in the shower.  Or if you are like me, you have more than one or two people using the shower and each person has their own set of bottles.

Well, the solution to that is to buy shower caddies....ones that can hang on your shower head or the ones that have suction cups that are suppose to hold up but don't.  So, what do you do???

Buy another shower curtain rod (a tension one) and put it up inside your shower on the back wall and use curtain rings (preferably the metal ones) to hold up all that different caddies and even all the different shower loafs.

It is a great way to use the dead space in your shower and maintain some organization without spending an arm and a leg.
