Happy Sunday to you! My head is spinning with springtime New Orleans vibes so please excuse the brevity. I hope this finds you happy and well and wearing shorts despite the lack of tan. We’re all in this together and we’ll make it to summer tan on way or another.
Here are a few of the links that resonated with me this week, please:
• If you’re into true crime and the podcast My Favorite Murder you might also be into the most incredible book I’ll Be Gone In The Dark in which case you’re maybe never going to sleep again which leaves you plenty of time to read about how (in epic news!) The Golden State Killer was arrested this week!!! (Sacramento Bee)
Stay sexy – Don’t get murdered.
• A book I bought this week: We Need To Talk : how to have conversations that matter. (Amazon)
• If you grew up with The Cosby Show, you know the dissonance felt with Bill Cosby’s guilty verdict this week is large: Cliff Huxtable / Bill Cosby (New York Times)
• New York in 1978. There’s some strong summer-living inspiration in there. Let’s hold close. (New York Times)
• From Food52: Looking Back at 10 of Our Favorite Food Bloggers First Posts. I’m lucky enough to be included with a few other blogger dinosaurs.
• This week at The Bakehouse we welcomed Andrea Slonecker (cookbook author, food stylist, and generally awesome lady!) for a pretzel baking class. Andrea showed us how to make all sorts of pretzel shapes, how to work with lye, and how to eat hot pretzels with an insane amount of cold butter. We also made pretzel pockets using this: Jessica’s Crawfish Pie. They were BONKERS! (Amazon / Food52)
• We’re adding a few classes to the Autumn schedule at The Bakehouse: check out the upcoming classes. More added soon! (Eventbrite)
• I love the sweet paper flower crown from The House That Lars Built!
• I am: In Search of the Ultimate Mint Julep. (Punch)
Have a lovely Sunday! More soon!
hey Joy ! just to say, i’m tryin’ to see every “recette” you make…you have to come in Paris, if we talking about “bakery” stuff !
continue your work, i enjoy.
(ps : sorry for my english, i’m french..)
If anyone can recommend the ultimate virgin mint julep, I’d love to hear it. I had a heavenly one once in Louisiana and I’ve never quite been able to recreate it. That may be because it’s rarely as broiling in London as it was that day, but I’ve tried for a couple of years now and I can’t quite nail it. And I don’t drink so the full version is out for me.
Hello Joy! I just found you thanks to “My Rouses Everyday” publication! Hope to meet you soon, I live in Ocean Springs, MS and would love to attend a “Drake the Cake” workshop in the future. Have a great week!
So glad you’re going to keep doing Bakehouse classes. My dear friend has gotten into baking in the last 2 years, with some help from you, Joy! (We saw your SF Ferry Building presentation last year) Her birthday is November 4, so if you feel like scheduling a class that weekend I’d love to fly us out to take it!
Ugh. Every time I read about the bakehouse it makes me want to plan a whole New Orleans vay-cay around a class. DREAMS!
Same here. :)
I watched the press conference and was so frustrated when they brushed away Michelle’s book. I haven’t finished it yet, and now I picture his mugshot with each description!! Also, I have made your Thai Red Curry carrot soup approximately 36798542 times. LOVE!
Love your Sunday posts!
So interesting New York 1978!

Oh wow. I haven’t clicked through but I am 100% certain it was “Mise en Place” with the typo and everything! It has been a joy to read along and my arteries and mood swings are so glad you’ve branched our from only baking because, really, we grown and we clean out our cars and we don’t need to eat refined carbs with every every single meal.
