Joy the Baker

Thank You! Want a Cookie?

May 1, 2008

Please allow me to take a break from the usual photo and recipe post to tell you all how fabulous you are!

I only started Joy the Baker about 5 months ago.  In those short months, I have connected with fellow food lovers from around the world.  The response has been truly heart warming.  The praise, support and inspiration has really changed my life.

Thank you!  Thank you for visiting so loyally.  Thank you for reading, drooling and commenting.  Thank you for trying my recipes and telling me about your successes and oopsies.  Thank you for all of the laughs and inspiration that you have unknowingly provided me.

The only real way to say thank you is with cookies.  These Red Velvet Black and White Cookies have gone off the charts in their popularity on this site.  So, three lucky Joy the Baker readers will find these little beauties in their mail boxes- a thank you from me to you!  All you have to do is a leave a comment on this post, and I’ll pick at least three random names, ship them off, and you’ll enjoy cookies!  Go on, leave me a comment.  Tell me something good.

Thanks again for all of your support!  It means so much to me!

  • I just found your blog a few days ago and I already have a bunch of recipes on my list to try, including the ones you are mailing out! If I’m not lucky enough to get them in the mail, it will be just another great excuse to bake and blog for myself :-)

  • I love your blog! Thanks so much for sharing all your recipes, photos, and and talents. Those cookies look absolutely mouth-watering!

  • It’s really only been 5 months. Seems like you have been around the blog world longer than that.

  • Joy the baker rocks! Your photographs are stunning, recipes are fabulous and you are too cute in your podcasts. Now gimme my cookies! LOL

  • Who wouldn’t love to get these cookies in the mail! I am off to Italy for my 30th Wedding Anniversary and my 25-year-old daughter is taking care of her siblings while we are gone, so no one will be home to bake for them. So they could use a cookie care package in the mail. Thanks!

  • What a treat! Your blog has been such a great read. I have bookmarked so many of your goodies already – and of course this red velvet black and white cookie recipe is one of them!

    Hope you keep writing. :)

    Those cookies look really good. Send them to me…Please!

  • I confess, I’ve been one of your silent readers for a while. I’ve even printed out a few of your recipes to try out. The red velvet black and white cookies are one I’ve been planning to attempt.

    Keep on taking gorgeous pictures and beautiful food!

  • Your recipes always look AMAZING, but those red velvet black and white cookies were definitely the ones that I craved the most. I bookmarked that page RIGHT away with the intention of making them as soon as I got home from college!

    Keep up the beautiful blog.

    …and cookies…pleeeeeease?

  • i would so love to get these in the mail, but aussie customs would for sure capture them and eat them themselves! that can only mean one thing…i will have to make them sometime at home. you have a wonderful blog…you take amazing photos, and you always make things that i’d love to try (esp the brekkie stuff)!

  • Seriously? Because I’ve been craving those cookies ever since you posted them. They look delicious! (Please, let this be my lucky day.)

  • What fun! I’ve really enjoyed seeing all the pictures of your tasty treats and writing down the ones that I’m going to try one day.
