    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.
    Every day I need a treat. I need a little something that says "Hey, I see you trying to get through this day standing on your own two feet, and you deserve this special something just for you.”

    Sometimes that treat is a whole milk cappuccino with extra cinnamon. Whole milk tastes like ice cream to me. It’s just too good. Sometimes that treat is a high-kick dance along to old school Beastie Boys, because, yea, I’m still listening to Beastie Boys. Often times, that treat is a piece of chocolate. A piece usually turns into a good portion of the chocolate bar — but then again, you knew that.

    We’re going to need a little something to savor. Reach for the chocolate — or, better yet, make these creamy, crunchy, salty, sweet, chocolate-studded pudding cups! Actually, get someone to make it for you. That’s the real savor.
