Joy the Baker

From My Kitchen To Yours!

October 4, 2013

 in your kitchen

I spend a lot of time alone in my kitchen creaming butter and doing the dishes.  I spend a fair amount of time at my desk writing recipes and reading your comments.  There is even more time spent standing over my counter trying to take pictures of coffee cake while I cat tries to paw at the frosting.  There are a lot of little pieces that have to come together to make the wheels turn in this little space.

The very best thing about the wheels turning on this little Joy the Baker train (if you will…) is YOU!  Seriously.  Thanks to Instagram, and your clever @joythebaker tags, I get to see what has travelled from my kitchen counter to yours!  It’s incredible!  You, my friends, are out there killin’ it!  You’re making magic happen in your kitchens and I couldn’t be happier!

These Brown Butter Baked Doughnuts are so dang photogenic and delicious, it’s almost obnoxious.  You nailed it jenny_mitchell!

You know how to get down with the Bourbon Banana Bread from my cookbook.  I so appreciate that you have it in your kitchen and you pull it out to make bread!!  Nicole, you know you’re incredible, and sashlajefa… amazing!

Mashed Potato Waffles with Cheddar and Chives. I mean… this might be one of my favorite recipes ever.  I applaud your taste and your chive sprinkling skills, kprood!

Tomato Cobbler with Blue Cheese Biscuits and these Baked Eggs from my Mother’s Day collaboration with Honestly Yum.  Totally dreamy!  kelseycolette and hilaryamyers!  BOOM!  Doin’ it! Also.. can I borrow your round casserole dish?  K. Thanks.
