Laurie Cataldo

Hey, it's Laurie...check me out weekdays from 10-3p, doing everything I can to make your workday better! In the studio you'll usually find me reading news articles of all kinds, while singing along to whatever song is playing. Outside the studio, I love good food, Penn State (class of '07!), The Real Housewives franchises (guilty pleasure), and brilliant sunsets. I'm also dying to be on a game show -- I'd rock Wheel of Fortune. I'm a local girl; I'm currently living in Red Bank, but grew up in Marlboro. Something on your mind? Let me know about it anytime at 732-988-POINT or!

Meal Ideas If There’s a Power Outage in NJ This Weekend

That means power outages are possible, so in the interest of being prepared for anything, I've thought of a few meal options. They can be whipped up with pantry items you might even already have!
