Ultimate Triple Chocolate Chunk Cookie and a Fridge Makeover

Jump to recipe!


As you well know, if you have been around here, there is always some cooking and baking going on in our home! While I cook and bake, almost, everything from scratch, I’ll have to admit that sometimes our choices of ingredients are not always as healthy as they should be.

I have tried to get motivated to change some things, but had not gotten around to it. Then I got a little kick in the pants from I Can’t Believe It’s not Butter!®, when they sent me an awesome box full of goodies to makeover our fridge!

I will have to give the makeover credit to Doug, my husband, he actually does a better job with keeping the fridge clean and straight than I do. It seems like I am always in such a hurry, I just kind of stick things in quickly and don’t pay much attention to how long the food is in the fridge. I know…not so good. Doug took some pictures of his fridge makeover to share with you…

Now, while our fridge makeover is far from perfect, it is definitely an improvement! With the Holidays quickly approaching, every little change we can make will help. I saw these Ultimate Triple Chocolate Chunk Cookies on the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter website, and I just had to share. I think they would make a yummy addition to any Holiday get-together.

    I have a shallow box/tray which I repurposed from an old cooler, and I use it to store all my packages of shredded and sliced cheeses. They stand upright in the box, so I can flip through them to find the variety I need. I cheesily like to call it the “Cheese File.”

  2. The best fridge makeover I ever did—-The old one quit while we were gone for the weekend. I had to throw everything out and start all over again.

  3. not much of a ‘makeover’, but I like to keep the front of my fridge clean of everything (no magnets, pics, etc..). That way, when I walk into my kitchen, at least ONE thing looks clean!! HA

  4. I try to go through my fridge the day before I go for groceries. We can use up the leftovers for supper and start fresh for the next week. I am hoping to buy same size containers that work well for stacking leftovers to help it look neater – soon.

  5. my biggest tip is to label things when you store them in the freezer, that way you won’t forget what you have and have top open everything up

  6. I’m always pressed for time, so I try to look in the fridge daily while making the morning coffee. Leftovers get used more frequently, and I spend less time cooking and less time having to clean the fridge.

  7. I like to put things I have to use up on the top left hand shelf. That way I see them, and remember to use them up.

  8. I put items that keep longer on the bottom shelf of the fridge. That way i’m more likely to see the items that need to be used quicker sitting on the upper shelves.

  9. I go through and clean out our fridge once a week while I am making up my grocery list.

  10. I just go through about once a week and through out what needs to go.

  11. Suburban Prep says:

    We will put the fruit in the green bags so that the food will not spoil so easily.
    We also keep a few sticks of butter at the ready especially since it is baking season now.

  12. I love a clean fridge 🙂 I love plastic lazy susan’s in my fridge to keep the small items organized and then I don’t have to reach over them to get what is behind the other items.

  13. Melissamo1 says:

    My tip is to keep an “inventory” mindset everytime you put something away in the fridge. That way you remember what you have and plan to use it before it goes bad. It is so easy to throw something in the fridge without thinking about what is actually on those shelves.

  14. Buying lots of containers in all sizes from Ikea has helped us keep it more organized.

  15. Not so much a makeover but a way to know what I have and need to buy. I keep a list on the side of the fridge that has everything that I like to have on hand on it. This way if I use the last of it I can mark it off and add it to the grocery list.
