5 Questions With…Joy the Baker

There are a lot of really awesome folks out there who appreciate food and music as much as we do. So, we thought we’d ask them 5 questions about our two favorite things and see what they came back with. First up, one of our favorite food bloggers: Joy the Baker. Joy has a great sense of humor, and bakes up some of the tastiest (and most creative!) treats out there. She recently launched a new podcast called Homefries with Tracy of shutterbean (among a few other cool folks). Thanks for stopping by, Joy!

Name: Joy the Baker
Location: Los Angeles, California


  1. The single tastiest thing I’ve eaten this month is… wait.. the month is brand new! Last week I had the most delicious doughnut of my life at Huckleberry Bakery in Los Angeles. It was covered in chocolate. It was everything I every wanted out of life… well, besides a loving husband, curly haired children, and coffee that never gets cold.

  3. My favorite food discovery of 2011 has been the onigiri shop down the street from my house. Japanese rice balls stuffed with meats and pickled things? Shut it. So good.

  5. My favorite musical discovery of 2011 is James Blake. Is that totally uncool? I’m not good at music questions. Don’t judge me. [no, Joy, we’re big fans!]

  7. It’s a beautiful day in my neighborhood. I am riding my bike on the beach! …booyakah.

  9. The best sweet and salty combination is Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Pancakes with crumbled bacon and maple syrup. Holy smokes.

    Love this feature! Joy’s personality pops out of every word she writes.

  • Super fun series! Joy is a joy. I dig James Blake as well.

    Glad I poped by – I’m into what ya’ll are putting down!

  • Tracy Shutterbean

    Joy tried to get me into James Blake. I just couldn’t do it!! Still love her to pieces…

  • That’s exactly what I thought – you know it’s Joy without even seeing her name!

  • Thanks, Michelle!

  • Lol- we recently saw him in concert and as much as I love listening to him on the record player, I felt like an old lady when the bass came on and my legs started shaking. It’s great for a mellow night, thought.

  • Katherine Martin

    Sometimes after I listen to Homefries… I feel myself thinking in the way that Joy & Tracy talk. Kinda like after you watch Gilmore Girls and you start talking & thinking REALLY fast.

  • I know exactly what you are talking about!

  • What a fun feature! That doughnut sounds divine, but I do agree that it would be especially nice to have coffee that never gets cold.

  • Wow, some best question are this which every one want to ask the baker. But my question is that the all bakery products are hygienic? This article is very interesting for me.
