Hi, I’m Jen! I’m so excited you decided to stop by.
I’m the blogger here behind Baked by an Introvert. I was born and raised in North Carolina, but I’m currently residing in Pensacola, FL with my husband, two cats, and two dogs.
I’ve always had a love for baking and cooking. There are fond memories of me helping my godmother whip up her famous watergate salad and signature potato salad.
As a teenager, I became responsible for preparing the family dinner because my mother was working second shift. This is when I discovered my passion for experimenting with food.
It wasn’t long after that when my grandma gave me my first cookbook on baking. I fell in love and wanted to make everything in it.
Even though I never bake from this book anymore, it remains a part of my collection. It sits on my bookshelf with its broken binding and tattered and stained pages as a reminder of where this passion came from.
Here on my site you will find a variety of baked goods, desserts, and savory options. I enjoy working with my hands to create edible masterpieces. It’s amazing how you can turn simple ingredients into something that brings joy to the people around you.
I get inspiration for my recipes from all over and I really enjoy putting my own spin on classic recipes that we’ve all come to know and love. When it comes to flavor options, the possibilities are endless.
Be sure to take a few minutes to browse around the site and check out the recipe index. Don’t forget to stop by Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter to say hello as well. I look forward to getting to know you.

A shy man no doubt dreads the notice of strangers, but can hardly be said to be afraid of them. He may be as bold as a hero in battle, and yet have no self-confidence about trifles in the presence of strangers.” –Charles Darwin
