Jen is a recipe developer, food blogger and baking enthusiast. She started Baked by an Introvert as a way to share her love for baking. She bakes mostly from scratch, transforming classic recipes into something more creative.

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 near Nashville, Tennessee 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.

    Dear Jen,
    I was introduced to your site by a recipe you had posted on Facebook and it looks marvelous. I was very interested what types of foods are on your blog so I checked my favorite section – Cookies. Terribly impressive!!! (Old school expression) You blew my mind. I love them all but dont know where to start or what the second one will be or the third. There is no other site where I can scan the list and just want everything.
    So I want to thank you very much for creating and assembling such a vast treasure of goodness.

    I stumbled across your website by way of your Dulce de Leche Thumbprint Cookies recipe. I had to stop what I was doing and make these delicious cookies! Now that they are made, and almost gone, everyone loved them, I can sit down and look over your website. Needless to say I am hooked! I can hardly wait to try the dozens of more recipes I found that sound soooo yummy. Thank you for all you the time you have put into your website.
