I am Joy 🙂  I am currently located in the wonderful city of Toronto, Canada. If you’d ask me to describe myself in one line I guess “daytime (biomedical) animator, 24/7 baking and food lover” would be pretty accurate.

Baking and food lover is pretty self-explanatory. I love baking (hence the blog). I also love nibbling around Toronto or which ever city I end up in. If you are interested in what I’ve been noming please follow my Instagram –@cozyoven!

You might be wondering what the heck is a biomedical animator?! We are professional artists with advanced education in life sciences and visual communication. It’s a pretty cool job, not gonna lie. I along with some pretty awesome teammates create educational surgical videos, which is enhanced with 3D animation, to help surgeons learn how to do surgery! I won’t get into the gory details but I get to go into the OR and film live surgeries! If you are curious about this unique profession you can check out some of my work here.

Now back to baking….


How I fell in love with the oven..

I fell in love with baking in my last high school year. The first thing I ever baked was blueberry oatmeal bar as a Christmas treat for friends. For my first time baking, it turned out surprisingly alright. But I mean my baking bar was set pretty low back then ;).  After that, I began looking up more recipes and learning techniques via internet, books, and food network (my fav!). I look forward to holidays even more because it gave me an excuse to bake. But later I learned there is always a reason to bake. I enjoy every step of baking:  the measuring, the mixing, the whisking, the kneading, the waiting, the tasting. What I love the most is sharing them with families and friends. Oh and of course I love food photo shoots.

I am, of course, no professional. However, I am continuously learning and challenging myself. My goal is to create something unique, sweet, joyful, cute, and yummy with my oven to share with my loved ones 🙂
