MASON JARS: I use large mason jars to store so much in from salsas, dressings and hot fudge sauce to crafts, markers and pens. These are great to have on hand for many kitchen uses.
POTS: I am a total snob after having an assortment of pots in our cupboard over the years. After getting some Calphalon pots on sale at my local grocer, I won’t try anything else. They are affordable and durable – a win, win in our home.
