I love to cook. It's a fun, creative activity that can be enjoyed every single day.
Meals are about sharing. I think we'd all benefit by slowing down a bit, and focusing more on the nightly family dinner. Life is too short, and the many lasting benefits of regular all-family meals are well-documented.
I started BigOven because I love cooking, and think we can make it much simpler and more fun. BigOven is all about solving the 'What should we make tonight?' problem for you.
Now that I've got most of my own favorite recipes online and on my smartphone, cooking for a family of five is much easier.
Software veteran and home cook Steve Murch founded BigOven, and leads the passionate team behind it.
I love to eat, so I decided to learn how to cook. I took cooking classes in France, Italy, Thailand and California Wine Country and started experimenting in my own kitchen with new recipes. I dreamed about a better way to manage and share my growing recipe collection, and was thrilled to discover BigOven.
I now rely on BigOven for my family's weekly menu planning and grocery shopping. My recipes are all on my phone, so I save time by deciding what's for dinner at soccer games and ballet lessons. My family eats better and saves money by cooking at home with fresh local ingredients.
I love being part of the BigOven team, making it easier for others to cook at home too.

I love to eat great food, and really enjoy when my wife and daughter cook together. Having grown up in Europe, and traveled/worked in Asia, the Middle East and Africa I have some eclectic tastes and am often trying new culinary experiences, the more unusual the better. I value variety, and I love when my daughter experiments by "inventing" new dishes (which we add to her growing BigOven collection.)
Living at altitude in the mountains of Colorado we schedule our trips to the grocery store, and try to plan ahead. Since we are a mobile device household the BigOven applications are just right to help us save on unexpected trips, and manage our fridge & pantry.
I enjoy working on the mobile applications since they help people experience new recipes, save money, and get more out of eating. I strive to have them fullfill the very personalized commitment of "take your recipes anywhere".
Hey BigOven cooks! I’m a fellow culinary enthusiast who is lucky enough to look at recipes all day long – and get paid for it!
Cooking and food have always been central to my life. After being spoiled by my mom’s awesome cooking for many years, I learned to create delicious dishes of my own so I wouldn’t starve while at university. My specialties are shakshuka (an egg and tomato dish), roasted vegetables (I’m currently on a Brussels sprouts and sweet potato kick) and simple tofu dishes. I love to cook dinner with my friends and we use grocery list to make the shopping easier for everyone. When I’m not curating content for BigOven, I’m probably overindulging in free samples at Seattle’s Pike Place Market or sitting outside with a good book.

I love Italian food, especially a good deep dish pizza!
I'm "The Breakfast Guy" at my house, multi-tasking like a short order chef. My specialty is a scrambled egg creation of salmon, spinach, mushrooms, peppers and cheese. I actually like grocery shopping, seeing each visit as a type of "time trial" to see how quickly and efficiently I can get through the store. The BigOven grocery list has certainly made that a lot easier!

I have always enjoyed experimenting in the kitchen. It’s fun to taste the finished product and make something new and exciting for family and friends.
Figuring out what to make for dinner should be a positive experience. BigOven is a wonderful place to store my own recipes as well as discover new recipes… every day I come across recipes that I want to make!
My favorite dish is mac & cheese with sharp cheddar, gruyere, nutmeg and lumachelle pasta. Twice-baked apple blue cheese potatoes are definitely a close runner-up.
Everyone eats, so everyone should cook too, or at least give it a try!

Let's be honest: I don't cook. Unless it involves a grill, it's a challenge for me. But, just as you don't have to paint to appreciate fine art, I'm living proof that you don't have to cook to enjoy BigOven. Whether it's a new way to prepare Filet Mignon for New Year's Eve or the tasty Barbecue Roasted Salmon recipe for a summer dinner on the deck, I am always more than willing to track down the perfect BigOven recipe for someone else to prepare. I'll gladly do the dishes.
I am thankful to be a part of the BigOven team. We continually work to bring the best experience to our users and that's a challenge I enjoy.
