Joy Wilson


Joy Wilson is the voice behind the popular blog Joy the Baker. In four short years, Joy the Baker has been named one of the ’50 Best Food Blogs’ by The London Times, and the ‘Best Baking Blog’ by Saveur. Joy has also been featured in both Food & Wine Magazine and Sunset Magazine.

Joy the Baker chronicles everything from how to impress boys with brownies, to how to make a pancake dinner just for one. Her food, writing, and photography are approachable, light-hearted, and will have you laughing out loud, and reaching for your fork.

Joy is also co-founder of Homefries.com, a growing site dedicated to lifestyle audio and video podcasts, including the popular Joy the Baker Podcast.

Joy’s first cookbook, the Joy the Baker Cookbook, is an unabashed celebration of butter and sugar.

Joy lives in Venice, CA with her monstrous cat Jules, an admirable collection of nail polish, and a refrigerator full of butter.
