Hi, everyone! I know it’s been a little while, and I have recipes piling up that I want to post here, but time has not been on my side lately. It does seem to be that way during this time of the year, doesn’t it?
If you bake on a regular basis — gluten free or not — then you know how quickly ingredients can fill up your cabinets and pantry. And if you bake gluten and sugar free, then you might find yourself in my situation, with over a dozen different types of flour plus several sweeteners stuffing your shelves.
Things got so confusing and unkempt looking in my cupboards that I found myself not wanting to bake as much because I knew that I’d have to sort through ziploc bags full of who knows what in order to find what I needed. Not fun!
On a recent Sunday afternoon, I finally had it with the mess, and I went out and purchased snap top containers for my ingredients. I made ingredient labels to go on the containers, and my cupboards are now full of ultra organized and labeled flours and sweeteners. For the first few days after I organized, I couldn’t stop opening the cabinet and smiling because everything was so much easier to find. I plan on keeping it this way!
The free printable ingredient labels (445 Kb PDF) include 27 different flour and sweetener labels in a rainbow of colors. For those who may not be interested in the colors that I chose, and for those of you who don’t use these types of ingredients, I’m also providing a sheet of printable blank labels (529 Kb PDF) that you can use as ingredient labels, gift tags or labels, food labels, and more. I made the blank labels a deep red for a Christmas-y feel, but if you have a graphic editing program like Illustrator or Photoshop, then you can easily change the colors to whatever you’d like. The font I used is Luna, which can be found for free at DaFont.
