We may have Joy the Baker's infamous "Man Bait" Apple Crisp recipe committed to memory, but it's not the only reason we're loyal to this self-taught dessert maven. Joy's hilariously soulful commentary, undying devotion to butter, and her steadfast belief that cake is a perfectly acceptable breakfast choice is what really keeps us coming back for more.
I feel like every blog should have a safe-word. We need a word that says, "Um, why are you posting way less on your blog these days, are you pregnant?" No. We need a word that says, "I know you’re phoning it in with that compilation of past post's post." It’s cool.
We need a word that says, "Cool, you’re engaged! I’m going to unfollow you on Pinterest immediately." It’s nothing personal. It’s a wedding thing. We need a word that says, "Did you really just post a recipe for ice!?" I’m sorry.
I was going to have our safe-word here be "lasagna grilled cheese," but we can’t use that anymore because that’s a thing now. Our safe-word definitely can’t be "chocolate dipped bananas’ because that’s obviously a thing. Maybe our safe-word should be "gorilla pants," until I get a pair. I’ll let you know when that happens. Until then, "gorilla pants" is our safe-word.
I’m really glad we had this talk.
