Let’s have some Joy in our cooking

How many of you follow the food blog, Joy the Baker? Well, if you don’t you should. Here is her blog to see the many luscious recipes she has made.


I have been a follower of hers for a very long time. She has some mouthwatering recipes that will just knock your socks off. And the good thing is all of the recipes that I have tried worked. They have looked  just like the pictures that are on her blog.

Last year she posted that she was going to publish a cookbook. Boy, was I excited. I could hardly wait. But it seemed like it was just taking forever. But  the day finally came last week and her cookbook is now out for everyone to look at. A friend of mine bought a copy of it and I am so glad she is my friend. I got to take a peek at the recipes in it. There are some really really  good ones. And the one that I made first was the brownies that I used as the picture for this post.

Don’t they look good? I will tell you they were as good as they look. And easy too. The best part is that you don’t have to go out and buy a copy of the book. You just have to check it out here at the library. And be sure and check out the cooking neighborhood for all of your cookbook and recipe needs.

If you love to cook, you might want to check out the new cookbook club, Cooking by the Book. We will be talking and tasting the Pioneer Woman Cooks by Ree Drummond April 12 at 7:00 pm in the Anton Room.  I hope to see you there and happy cooking.
