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.
