Hi, I’m Stef, a self-taught baker and culinary arts & food science student. I grew up in south Jersey and spent my teenage angst in my parents’ kitchen learning to cook and bake one mess at a time. After college, I moved to Philadelphia to attend graduate school for interior architecture and instead, fell in love with the cuisine.

My other half, Joe, has a serious sweet tooth. He came up with the name treatbelly to describe his growing belly from treat consumption. We live in south Jersey with our two cat loafs, Mal and FC.
