Coming Soon From Me to You

Hey, Hi and Howdy Friends!

There are all sorts of things going on behind the computer screen here at Joy the Baker Headquarters.  (Joy the Baker Headquarters in my crazy-messy desk, my tiny kitchen, and the crazy-messy trunk of my car.)  I wanted to give you a little preview and share some pretty pictures with you.

Also, I’m headed to the east coast this November and December and I would love love love to see you!


I want to tell you about my apple picking extravaganza with Lani.  I also made an apple cake and I ate too much.

Typical Thursday.

I want to tell you about the afternoon I spent making a tremendously delicious mess in the kitchen with a blogging hero-legend…


Emily from Cupcakes and Cashmere!  We drank Bloody Marys and ate too many cinnamon rolls and it was everything ever.


I’m working on videos too!  They’re mostly video tutorials about how to point during sunset.  Not really… we’ve already got the sunset pointing down as evidenced my this screen-capture gem.

When I say ‘I’m working on videos’, I really mean me and a whole team of people who make things look pretty and sound good.  It takes a village.

gluten-free strawberry ginger pie!

I’m heading to the east coast again and I would LOVE to hang out with you.

Vermont:  I’m teaching a pie baking class and signing books at King Arthur Flour on November 10th!

Boston:  Snow time in New England!  I’ll be signing book at Eat Boutique Holiday Market on December 9th.  I’m SO excited.  I hope we can hang out and do all the things that people do in Boston.  Does this have anything to do with parking cars in Harvard yards?  I’m a west coast girl… I don’t know.

I’ll be back east again soon.  I really want to come see you in Washington DC and North Carolina.  I hope you’ll have me!

Happy Friday my friends!

  1. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE come visit us (me) in Charlotte, NC!!!! We (I) just LOVE your posts and look forward to reading them. They’re like a little gift. Thank you for making us (me) smile….. :^)

  2. Boston! Yes! Oh, there are things to do, Joy. You just let me know, I’ll plan your trip top to bottom–or in the very least your Area Four pizza + MIT + Flour Bakery sticky buns section of the trip. :)

  3. I lived in NC for a couple years. I hope you get to see it. So different than SoCal but we loved our time there.

    And I love that PIE. It’s beautiful!

    And these images…all of them are stunning and fresh and modern and love the filter on some of them. I am diggin’ this post!

  4. I just stumbled on to you tonight. Hello! I already love you. I’m going to make your biscuit cinnamon buns for my sister this weekend.

  5. This was a very pleasant post. Full of pleasantness.

    (one of my favourite words but I dont get to use it very often and am happy to be using it here!)

    Also, I know this isn’t the homefries site but I have been listening to yours and Tracy Shutterbean’s podcast from the very beginning and I still find myself laughing and smile all the way home from work while stuck in LA traffic. Then I look around really fast to make sure no one is looking at me. Because really, I must look pretty silly sitting in my car giggling to myself.

    Thank you for making the drive so bearable!
