Peanut Butter Cup Holiday Cookies

What do you do when you can’t sleep?  There are two schools of thought.   The first: toss and turn it out. Stay in bed, take several deep breaths, and try to take your mind from the things that make it a hamster wheel. Don’t. I repeat, do not pick up your phone to check the time or compare yourself to impossible people on Instagram. Just… you know…...

Chocolate Peppermint Black and Marble Cookies

Are you ready for it?  We’ve entered the downhill slalom towards the holidays and the new year.   Despite the year we’ve endured, heck… maybe because of the year we’ve endured, I’m tipping full-body into this holiday season.  My mom is sweet enough to craft these ornaments for my Christmas tree (that I’m picking up a few days late this year). I have...

Thankful For You!

Hello dear friends and Happy Sunday!  You’ll allow me a little break from our Let It Be Sunday post this holiday Sunday. I’ve taken a bit of time off this week to spend time with a small handful of loved ones in Texas.  Our next Let It Be Sunday is #300 so I need to give it it’s proper attention when my work wheels are back running at full speed. ...

Cordellia Ann’s Potato Dinner Rolls

Friends, I have a last minute holiday offering for you. Oh just the most pillowy-soft, tender sweet baby angel, carb-on-carb dinner rolls. I don’t know what your Thanksgiving looks like this year, certainly different than we anticipated earlier this January.   I hope that you’re finding ways to be safe and enjoy a sweet meal with a few people you...

Let It Be Sunday, 299!

Hi friends!  Happy Sunday.  You floored me. I read every single one of your comments on the blog this week and it was deeply humbling. You all were so generous. I’m really so thankful we’re all here together every Sunday. If you’ve never commented, thank you for peeking out to wave ‘heeey!’. I love it. Please feel comfortable going back to your quiet...

Lemon Meringue Pie with Citrus Spiced Sugar Cookie Crust

We’re opening the windows wide and letting the love right in the kitchen today!  We’re making another of my family’s favorite pies, brought to us by my favorite fellow baker Erin Jeanne McDowell.  It’s been too many years since I’ve made a Lemon Meringue Pie and high time this classic recipe has a space on Joy the Baker.  Lemon Meringue Pie was my...

What We’re Baking This Season

If you’re anything like me, you’ve got four grocery lists working. I’ve got the list for brunch with my boyfriend this weekend. I’ve got this prep list for Thanksgiving week, and the list of things I’ll need to buy fresh a few days before Thanksgiving.  It’s wild, and I’m not even planning a major Thanksgiving.   It’s just that – we’re really cookin’...

Let It Be Sunday, 298!

Hi friends!  Me here. Joy. Joy Wilson. Joy the Baker.  That I greet us as friends each and every Sunday is no accident. That’s sincerely how I feel. If you’re here, if you’ve decided to come here beyond where google has landed you in search of a chocolate chip cookie recipe, I consider us friends. What I’ve seen the last few weeks in the comment section...

Peanut Butter Gingersnap Chews

It’s that time of year where I find myself wearing short skirts with long sleeve sweaters, a chunky scarf with my cut off shorts. It’s silly really, but there’s that delicious bite of autumn in the wind.  There’s a hint of a chill in the air down here in New Orleans, but enough of a sunny day to feel a little flirty.  That alone is enough to have me...

Dad’s Perfect Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Refined Sugar-Free Sweet Potato Pie

Hi friends! Let me remind you why you’re here. You’re here for the PIE PIE PIE PIE PIE!! (Yes, I’m yelling and flailing my arms in the air – it’s festive). You know when I bust out the Oprah style volumes to yell PIE I’m screaming about one pie in particular: good ol’, perfect in every way, Dad’s Sweet Potato Pie. It’s the reason for the season, y’all....
