    thanks for the start of your blog

  • Hi,
    Discovered your blog and am looking forward to trying some of your wonderful recipes! I will definitely purchase your book! :) Have a beautiful day. Love your story about your Dad waking you up to help bake pies with him. xoxo Kim

  • Can we just call it cocktail-time? Loved that. So perfect.

  • Hi Joy-
    I’m Robert with 34 Degrees Crispbread–you used photos of our crackers in your excellent November 8th posting “The Perfect Cheese Plate”. Thank you so much for the exposure; the photos were beautiful! I’m glad that you like our product, and I was also pleased to see that some of your followers also recognized us.
    Please check out our website and our Facebook page to learn more about our company. We are passionate foodies devoted to enhancing the tasting experience, especially where cheese is concerned!
    Let me know if you’d like us to send you some more samples to play with. We’ve got some cool new items planned for 2012 as well.

  • Joy… you are a joy! Your site is so easy to read and to navigate, and your recipes are divine. Thank you !!!


  • Hi Joy,
    I’m based in Dublin, Ireland and your website has been putting a smile on my face for quite a while now. I’ve just set up my own baking blog (it went live yesterday). Would love if you had a look, as I am trying to spread the word. The blog is really about old fashioned simple, tasty homemade baking that everyone loves.
    Keep up the good work,

  • Joy- I know we just met…but I think I love you.
    Thank you for your clever, charming and incredibly smart site. I am having a lot of fun indulging in your recipes.

    We are going to have a lot of fun together. I am sure of it.

  • Loved making your roasted tomato and farro recipe. The onions and balsamic were divine. I devoured it for dinner last night and can’t wait to make it again for friends and family. Thanks!

  • Dear Joy, first of all congrats on your lovely blog and many thanks for sharing with us your work! After visiting your blog periodically, I decided I would subscribe to receive it in my mail box. Yesterday I followed all the regular procedure and this morning, instead of a post I received an e-mail I thinks looks a bit like phishing. Here’s what came up in the mail, that has your name and mail address as the sender.

    Is this really yours or is someone trying to hack us via your blog?
    Thanks, Tziranda.

  • I’m so happy I ran out of brown sugar today! Had that not been the case I never would have stumbled across your blog. I love it and you are hilarious!! I can’t wait to make something….I am going to start with Lemon Raspberry Breakfast Rolls. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

  • Joy- I have been a follower for some time and I continue to enjoy all of your posts, great recipes and photos of what we all LOVE… FOOD! :) I am hosting a fundraiser in Sept. and I thought I would ask you for some tips on finger foods that can be prepared ahead of time… and…….. if you would be interested in supporting the event with an autographed book/recipe or something, I know it would be a HIT!!! (of course we are open to any fun ideas!!) You are awesome. Thanks for being an inspiration!

  • I am new to your site, which I have found via Pioneer Woman and How Sweet Eats. You recipes sound amazing and I cannot wait to try some out! I am looking for a recipe to make fruit fillings for cakes, like strawberry and raspberry. Would you have any recipes like that, that you would be willing to share?

  • I just discovered your blog and kudos to you. I love the way you write. I really enjoy your blog and pictures and for sure the recipes are to die for.
    I do want to ask is it possible to post more recipes using oil and not butter?

  • I would love to follow your blog, but your subscribe via RSS link isn’t working. If you could look into this, I will DEFINITELY subscribe!

  • I love your writing, photography, and, most of all, recipes! I hope to start my own baking blog – do you have any tips?
