In our 401st video recipe Stephanie demonstrates how to make Cappuccino Biscotti. This Cappuccino Biscotti recipe opened my eyes to the possibility of flavors you can have in a biscotti. Before this recipe, I had only tasted almond biscotti, yet here I found a biscotti that combined the flavors of coffee, chocolate, and hazelnuts. And if that weren't enough, they are also scented with ground cinnamon and cloves. Let's get baking!!

In our latest video recipe Stephanie demonstrates how to make Peanut Butter Cup cookies. Peanut Butter Cup Cookies are a soft and chewy peanut butter cookie with a miniature peanut butter cup sitting on top. If you think children are the only ones who enjoy these Peanut Butter Cup Cookies you would be wrong as I find adults are prone to sneaking a cookie or two. Let's get baking!!

In our latest video recipe Stephanie demonstrates how to make a Chocolate Cake with Swiss Buttercream Frosting. Chocolate Cake, Dulce de Leche, and a vanilla flavored Swiss Buttercream Frosting. That is what this three layered cake is made of. It's delicious, it's decadent, and it's oh so pretty. Let's get baking!!

In our latest video recipe Stephanie demonstrates how to make Coconut Marshmallows. Try one of these Coconut Marshmallows and enjoy a delicious vanilla scented cube of spongy airiness that is coated with crisp shreds of toasted coconut. They make a wonderful sweet snack but they also make an inexpensive yet impressive gift that requires only a couple of ingredients and a short time in the kitchen. Happy Easter!

In our latest video recipe Stephanie demonstrates how to make Homemade Pop-Tarts®. These homemade Pop-Tarts® are delicious. You have two rectangles of buttery pastry, sandwiched together with a tart and tangy raspberry jam (preferably homemade). Of course, the finishing touch is a sugary powdered glaze and colored sprinkles. Let's get baking!!

In our latest video recipe Stephanie demonstrates how to make a Chocolate Pound Cake. This Chocolate Pound Cake is rich and buttery with a mild chocolate flavor. It has a fine crumb and a dense texture. While this cake doesn't really need a frosting, I couldn't resist pouring a shiny chocolate glaze over the top. Let's get baking!!

We are celebrating our 400th video recipe with a Lemon Meringue Tart. If you were to binge watch all 400 videos it would take you over 90 hours to watch them all. When we started shooting video in January 2011 we had no idea what a game changer video would be in helping people learn to bake. Baking is not just about a recipe as many recipes are quite simple in terms of the number of ingredients. The secret is the technique and that is difficult to explain in written instructions. Even step by step photos can be a slog to get through and understand. We are committed to helping you learn to bake the easiest to the most advanced recipes that will wow your family and friends. So stay tuned, the best is yet to come!!

Tested Baking & Dessert Recipes and Videos
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.
