In our latest video recipe Stephanie Demonstrates how to make Chocolate Croissants. As soon as I started making homemade Croissants, friends and family asked me to make Chocolate Croissants (also known as Pain au Chocolat). They didn't have to ask me twice, as I too love a buttery croissant with a large chunk of dark chocolate inside. Let's get baking!!

In our latest video Stephanie demonstrates how to make Butter Tart Squares. Butter Tart Squares are simply irresistible with their buttery shortbread crust that is topped with a rich and gooey caramel-like filling. They are similar to a Canadian Butter Tart, only in bar form. Let's get baking!!

In our latest video recipe Stephanie demonstrates how to make Paris-Brest. The Paris to Brest 1200 km cycling event is held every 4 years and the event will start this Sunday August 16. The story goes that in 1891 when the race started, a pastry chef along the bicycle route decided to make a celebration cake called Paris-Brest, to honor the race. It was made with a round of choux pastry (meant to resemble a bicyle wheel) that was sprinkled with almonds, and filled with a praline flavored cream. Let's get baking!

In our latest video recipe Stephanie demonstrates how to make French Baguettes. In this video you will learn how to make REAL French Baguettes. This isn't white bread rolled like a baguette, this is the real thing like you would buy in a French bakery. Watch for more advanced baking videos such as breads, danish, chocolate croissants, pizza and much more in the coming months. Let's get baking!

In our latest video recipe Stephanie demonstrates how to make Dulce de Leche Frozen Yogurt. This Frozen Yogurt resembles ice cream in texture and it is made like ice cream (that is - churned in an ice cream machine). But unlike ice creams that have a custard base, this frozen yogurt just stirs together plain yogurt, heavy cream, and Dulce de Leche. Watch for more advanced baking videos such as baguettes, danish, chocolate croissants, pizza and much more in the coming months. Let's get baking!!

To the fruit you can add a variety of ingredients. Things like frozen ices, yogurt, crushed ice, and fruit juices. Let's get baking!!

Introduction
Joyofbaking.com was founded in May of 1997 as a way for me (Stephanie Jaworski) to connect with other people who love to bake. At the time I was a stay-at-home mom baking daily for my family, friends, neighbors, school functions, and any one else who enjoyed a cookie or two. My husband decided I needed an outlet for my passion and so this website began. We started small with just a few recipes and a very simple design. Over the past 14 years we have continued to grow in content and now we are fortunate to receive, on average, 5 million page views per month and up to 12 million during the fall holiday season. I've been asked many times why I don't have a cookbook and the reason is that, for now, I want to focus all my resources on Joyofbaking.com.

If you are a regular to the site you have probably noticed that my style is quite eclectic. That is because I have lived both in Canada and the United States. Born in Nova Scotia to a British father I was brought up eating both Canadian and British food. My family moved to Winnipeg Manitoba when I was a teenager and that is where I eventually met and married my husband, Rick. From Winnipeg we subsequently moved to Thompson Manitoba, Regina Saskatchewan, Ottawa, and Toronto. In 1988 we were given the opportunity to move to the US, so we packed our bags and headed to Portland Oregon. From there we moved to Indianapolis Indiana and now we live in Atlanta Georgia. Through all the moves I have continued to bake and read about baking and have explored the diverse baking interests of each place I've lived. I have no formal training, albeit a week long Patisserie class at the Le Cordon Bleu in London and a course in baking at the Western Culinary Institute in Portland. My experience and knowledge comes from being in the kitchen all the time and reading, lots and lots of reading. I've lost count of the number of cookbooks I have but I'm sure my library numbers well over a thousand. All the recipes on the site are devised, baked, and then written by me. I do not use outside recipe testers as I prefer to test each and every recipe myself in my own kitchen.

While the recipes and writing are done by me, all the beautiful photos and technical aspects of the site are handled by Rick. What would I do without him. Rick has a background in high tech marketing and engineering so he's well equipped to handle these tasks and that frees me to do what I do best, write about baking.

In closing, to become a good baker all you need are good ingredients and some time and patience in the kitchen. Practice does eventually lead to excellence so I encourage you to start easy and as your confidence builds you will be amazed at what you can accomplish.
