Jen was born and raised in Baltimore, but has lived in Portland, Ore. for so long it feels like home (even if her heart still belongs to blue crabs). She loves the rain, buys too much chocolate, reads, writes, eats, and cooks voraciously, and will always stop to pet every stray cat she sees. After 10+ years in tech and customer support, she's overjoyed to finally be writing about food all day, just like she dreamed about doing when she was a kid.
