Wow, it was a whirlwind weekend attending Food Blog Forum courtesy of Walt Disney World and many other wonderful sponsors that I can’t wait to work with in the future.
There’s so much to share, but thought to just soak it all in with a glass or two of meyer lemon, blood orange with mint spritzer, reading Joy the Baker’s beautiful cookbook.
3 lucky readers would get a chance to win Joy’s cookbook, so read on!
Ever since the blogging world had their chance of showcasing meyer lemon recipes, I’d on the other hand was mad at my local grocery store. Every single visit to them was a nightmare. I couldn’t get my hands on meyer lemons.
Can it get anymore worse? Yes. We’ve never tasted meyer lemons before, so the curiosity was literally testing my patience.
After endless scouring, we found these babies at Whole Foods — gotta love WF for versatility in the produce department.
Now, enough of me complaining. While I sip and browse through Joy’s beautiful cookbook, care to join in the fun with a glass or two? Go make this now, I’ll wait
[Makes 3 servings]
- 2 meyer lemons, juiced

Are you back with a pitcher and a glass in your hand? What’s only missing is Joy’s Cookbook, right? Not to worry my friends, read on…
Before I give more details on the cookbook giveaway, can we all just give Joy a round of applause?!? What an amazing journey she’s had and I couldn’t be more thrilled when she announced a cookbook deal.
Well, it was about time, no?
If you’ve never came across Joy’s blog, you must now. She is such an inspiring blogger with so much sense of humor I feel we are somehow related from previous lives.
Her cookbook, “100 Simple and Comforting Recipes“, truly reflects her personality, witty and writing skills from her blog. Truly love that she’d reflected her blog into this cookbook!
I mean, just look at the content and page titles. Who does that at all, right?
Hope to meet you someday, Joy and congratulations on the success of your beautiful, thoughtful and scrumptious looking recipes. Can’t wait to experiment in the kitchen!ps: Any chance of visiting Orlando, FL on your cookbook tour? No harm in asking, I hope!
