We love sharing things that interest us and excite us. It's a huge reason why we run this blog - because the world is just too full of amazing bloggers, crafters, designers, artists - you name it - to not tell everyone about. And this is one blog that we love. Foodies, pay attention. Joy the Baker is a refreshing, heartfelt, honest blog about Joy and about her passion - cooking and baking. But let's hear it from her:
I’m Joy. I’m a baker. Had you guessed as much? I’m currently hurtling into my thirties, trying to show the world, and my kitchen, what’s what. I’m a self taught/ family taught/ taste buds taught baker. I grew up in the kitchen in between my father, who makes a mean Sweet Potato Pie, and my mother, who makes a really weird purple hot dog casserole… don’t ask. Between my kitchen loving parents, the clinking cake pans, and the flying flour, it became clear that baking is in my blood.
So if you're in the market for a great recipe, Joy's your girl. Her recipe index is divided into several categories - booze, bread, breakfast, cakes, chocolates, cookies, cupcakes, dinner, drinks, fruit gluten-free, holiday, pie, savoury, snacks and vegan. Tell us you won't find an amazing recipe with all these categories?!
