Cookbook Giveaway: Joy the Baker Cookbook

By: Kirsten Vala

Get ready to make an instant best friend: Joy the Baker, aka Joy Wilson, is a chatty, sassy pancake-lover, blogger and self-taught baker who’s sure to charm you with her girl talk and sweet recipe combo. Visit her blog for a fun coffee-break read (be prepared to crave cake afterward) and check out her new cookbook, Joy the Baker Cookbook: 100 Simple and Comforting Recipes.

Joy’s lighthearted, unpretentious approach to baking shines through in her cookbook. It’s hard not to love chapter titles like: “pancakes pancakes pancakes, and other lesser breakfast items”; “i need a hug or a brownie. maybe both.”; and “i think i just ate chocolate for dinner.” Her treats are perfect for sharing with family and friends and, of course, for spring holiday celebrations like Easter and Mother’s Day.
