What could be better than meeting Martha Stewart? Meeting Joy the Baker, naturally.

She had a book signing in Huntington Beach to celebrate her new (and first!) book: Joy the Baker Cookbook: 100 Simple and Comforting Recipes.

A few things about Joy:

1. She can teach you how to impress a boy by baking. That apple crisp is way too accurate. I mean…I haven’t used it for it’s intended purpose, but if I were someone’s mother, I’d totally approve.

2. She bikes everywhere. I want to bike everywhere, like I did in Davis. ALTHOUGH. I just bought myself a super rad hybrid bike that should be arriving this week!!!!! I can’t even tell you. But maybe the exclamation marks can.

3. She makes you want be a real baker. Not a let’s-halve-the-sugar-because-in-theory-it’s-much-healthier baker. It won’t be pretty.

The coolest thing was, during the Q&A, she said I looked familiar. To which I replied with total non-nonchalance, “Oh, we talk on Twitter sometimes.” OHMIasdfghka. Too Cool.
