Hi there, my name is Jen. Welcome to My Tiny Oven!
I am a lover of cooking and eating all kinds of food. I grew up in a home where both my parents cooked all the time. Both my Mom and Dad were fantastic cooks and we grew up eating a wide variety of home cooked meals. They were my inspiration for this blog and I have shared many of our Clarke family recipes here on the blog.
I only really started cooking and baking when I was in my early 30’s. Before that I lived off fish sticks and french fries. Once I finally figured out my way around the kitchen I couldn’t get enough. I watched a lot of Food Network and read a lot of Martha Stewart and now here I am, cooking and baking up a storm.
When I was 25 years old I moved from my hometown in Saskatchewan to Vancouver. I lived in a little apartment downtown for nearly 13 years. It was there I fell in love with all things culinary. My oven in that apartment was teeny tiny, hence the name of my blog! I couldn’t even fit a regular sized cookie sheet in that tiny oven, but I did end up making a ton of delicious food in that thing.
I just recently moved to Victoria with my in house taste tester. It is a lovely city and I have a much bigger oven now! I can’t wait to make a ton of new food memories in my new kitchen and then share them with you.
I like to cook simple quick food that tastes great. I hope you can find some inspiration here!
