Joy the Baker Cookbook: 100 Simple and Comforting Recipesby Joy Wilson
Synopses & Reviews
Joy the Baker Cookbook includes everything from “Man Bait” Apple Crisp to Single Lady Pancakes to Peanut Butter Birthday Cake. Joy's philosophy is that everyone loves dessert; most people are just looking for an excuse to eat cake for breakfast.
“When I first heard the name ‘Joy the Baker,’ I immediately felt happy and warm. I couldn't help it. And in the years I've gotten to know Joy the Person—and her beautiful, warm, comforting style of food—I can say without hesitation that she absolutely lives up to her name.” —Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman
“Joy bakes with her complete heart and soul, writes from the gut, and makes us feel that we too can make magic in the kitchen.” —Sara Kate Gillingham-Ryan, cookbook author and creator of TheKitchn
“The best thing would be to have Joy the Baker actually bake all these things with you in your kitchen. The next best thing is reading her book, written with the exact same charming, hilarious in-person style that makes you feel like she's right there with you, sharing the recipes that come from her heart and soul.” —Sarah Gim, TasteSpotting
“Joy is who made me want to bake. Stumbling on her blog was one of the luckiest and most inspirational things that has happened to me. She's an insanely talented writer and an even better baker.” —Emma Stone, actress
"Caterer and blogger-turned-author, Wilson of joythebaker.com, takes her easygoing, fun tone to book pages where she shares 100 inspiring and unconventional recipes. Chapter titles, including 'I need a hug or a brownie. Maybe both,' 'Oh happy day!' and 'I think I just ate chocolate for dinner,' set readers up for this collection that pushes culinary and dietary boundaries with dishes like coffee bacon (ground coffee with chili powder, brown sugar and molasses piled on bacon slices and baked) and bacon black pepper waffles (black pepper — rubbed bacon baked inside buttermilk waffles). The author's goal to 'turn favorite desserts into acceptable breakfast dining' is evident in her carrot pancakes. The healthy avocado does get a starring roll in dishes including avocado pound cake and vegan chocolate avocado cupcakes, and additional vegan options — such as vegan pumpkin pecan bread — have their place. Wilson's free spirit and celebration of the single life comes through in one-serving dishes such as the Single Girl Melty Chocolate Cake, and Single Lady Pancakes. Helpful prelim information on everything from how to soften butter in a hurry to determining the size of eggs removes any intimidation factor new bakers may feel in this refreshing and inspiring collection."
