Joy the Baker Cookbook!

joy the baker cookbook!!!

Would now be an ok time for me to freak out a little bit?  ….because I’m totally freaking out right now.  I’ve been sitting in front of this keyboard for hours, and I can not, for the life of me, think of a non-spazzy way to introduce what I’m about to introduce.  So…

It’s the Joy the Baker Cookbook!!!
how many exclamation points can I get away with there?  I was hoping for thirty (million).

The Joy the Baker Cookbook is a heartfelt exploration of butter and sugar.  It’s 100 recipes that I made in my kitchen… so you could make them in your kitchen.  Things like Red Velvet Marble Cake, and Strawberry Cookie Dough Ice Cream.  There’s milkshakes, skillet cakes, and french fries.  A whole chapter dedicated to my love of pancakes?  Yes… clearly.  There’s butter, sugar, cream, love, and smiles.  All of these things should be shared in hearty measure, so I put them in a book and I’m offering it to you.

The Joy the Baker Cookbook is published by Hyperion and will be released on February 28, 2012.  It is now available for pre-order through Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
Would now be a good time to nudge you and tell you that this book that came from my heart and soul is under $13 through Amazon and Barnes and Noble?  I happen to think that’s bonkers amazing… I was sure that the content of my soul was worth bumble bees and heart shaped chocolate candies… what do I know?


Behind the scenes there’s lots of cake, and pudding, and bars, and more cake.



Behind the scenes there’s lots of coffee and memory cards.

Well… Here it is! Here’s the cover, with dessert goodness bursting in the pages behind it.  Here’s the permanent thing that’s going to go into the world with my thirty year old (lovingly airbrushed) face on it.  This is real life.   I’m biting my nails with nerves and jumping for joy.  I hope you’re excited.  I made this for you!  Get your Joy the Baker Cookbook pre-order on!

I love you!

  1. Congratulations! The book looks great. I’m a big fan of yours. I’ve been following your blog for a while now, and I even tried some of the recipes on my own (very yummy stuff, even though when I make it, it doesn’t look as pretty as yours). In addition, I love books very much (it’s something about the paper – the smell and the feeling on the fingers…). And now I have double Joy:) Your wonderful recipes in a printed pretty book! Isn’t that lovely:)

  2. Wow lady!!! THOSE EYES ARE FOR REAL???!!!
    (I mean, boys in L.A. must be blind or mentally disordered…)
    I think you should move, actually.
    Well done for your cute little book.
    I guess you must be staring at it and crying like it was your first baby.
    You should feel proud of yourself.

  3. I think the price is ridiculous and another sign how bad authors get paid for their hard work. Really nothing to be proud of.
    Anyways, congrats on your book, it looks lovely :)

  4. YES! I have been waiting for this for-e-ver! I am so excited and I feel that everyone I know may recieve one of these cookbooks for their birthday. Congrats on finishing! Here’s to butter and sugar and many blessings!

  5. Whee!!!! Congratulations! :) And seriously? Under $13 is amazing. What a great way to say Happy Valwntine’s Day next year. Well, a little extra wait, but it will be worth it.

  6. You look absolutely amazing… yesterday I was looking at my wich list on and at long last I could see the cover of your new book, I was so impressed. On it will be available in march, though, can’t wait to have it. It was on my wish list since a couple of months and I will be counting the days!

  7. Congratulations. Sounds like 100 amazing recipes. Is there a typo, shouldn’t it say dessert goddess instead of dessert goodness?:) Congratulations again, I am sure the book with fly.
