Born in Neptune, NJ on January 21st, Teresa grew up with a passion for cooking, entertaining, reading, and writing at an early age. Her love for these things continued as an adult and after buying her home in 2008 most of her free time is dedicated to spending time with friends and family, entertaining, gardening, or working on household projects.
