What's so odd about Valerie Bertinelli's fridge?

In a recent interview with Food Network, Valerie dished out some fun secrets, from her favorite dishes to her culinary role models to her must-have kitchen items to her personal cooking rituals. When she was asked about the strangest thing in her fridge, Valerie admitted that she is a condiment hoarder. "I have one whole shelf that is just condiments," she says. "I think I probably have 15 different kinds of mustards and a couple different kinds of mayos."

Tons of refrigerator owners can likely relate to this ritual. With so many different brands and varieties on the market, collecting condiments is an inexpensive, economical, and delicious hobby. If you're in the mood for spicy ketchup, have at it! Craving sweet and zesty honey mustard? Reach into the fridge. Prefer some good old-fashioned mayonnaise on your turkey sandwich? You're covered!

As they say, you can never have too much of a good thing, right? Hopefully Valerie is able to use all of these delicious condiments before they expire!
