Want In on a Few Fun Facts?

My birthday is really easy to remember (and fun to say!): 8/28/82. And yes, I think we should share age!

The only food I can truly say I don’t like is carrots, though I still will eat them if they’re in a dish.

I met my husband while living in Florida, even though we grew up 45 minutes from one another in New Jersey.

I’ve done a lot of interesting things on TV- including ziplining, broadcasting live from the very top of the George Washington Bridge, indoor sky-diving, horseback riding, paddle boarding, Irish dancing, selling out on QVC, and of course, LOTS of cooking and eating!

My kids are very close in age, and at the time my youngest was born, we had three kids 3 and under in the house!
