Cooking is a huge part of my life. I have a constant fridge inventory running in the back of my mind. What foods do I have in stock, and more importantly, what will these kids actually eat? With three kids ages eight, six and two, I never know what is going to be a hot commodity in the Zucker household. One week the kids devour every blueberry in the house, the next week blueberries are DISGUSTING, MOM. Meanwhile, I, of course, stocked up on blueberries so now I have pints of blue orbs turning white in my fridge.
After watching mountains of fruit get consigned to the trash, I started thinking. You know, I do love dessert.

And I love baking.
So why not combine the two to make delicious treats for the whole family?
The problem is, where do I store all these goodies? We can barely fit food for five people into the fridge of our apartment in Hoboken, NJ, let alone mountains of baked goods.
After hearing friends rave about using mini fridges to store kid drinks and yogurt, I started googling options. I found a fridge on sale at BJ’s Wholesale Club in Jersey City when I was shopping for Thanksgiving dinner.
Now the entire family can enjoy homemade treats in seconds.
I also picked up a treat for Dad on an early Black Friday sale – a Samsung 55″ 4K Ultra HD 240Hz LED HDTV
It feels like we have a movie theater in our home.
My kids know that not everyone is lucky enough to have a warm home with good food to eat. This Thanksgiving, we helped hungry families have a healthy and delicious meal.
