Cheers To Us – Pleasure the Baker

Mates, Joyful New Yr!  We did one other 12 months collectively, largely to the efforts of Workforce JtB who stored the prepare on the tracks and the calendar so as.  January 2023 (what even?) marks 15 years of Pleasure the Baker which looks like an elaborate, pastry-heavy fever dream.  I hope this finds you easing into this new 12 months. January is like Monday – regardless that we make the thorough To Do Checklist, not the whole lot will get accomplished in someday or in a single month.  Let’s ease in.

Here’s a checklist of a few of my favorites by means of the 12 months of our lord 2022, could it relaxation in our recollections.

The most important factor I crossed off the 2022 Bucket Checklist

Seems my proudest second of 2022 was a bit of tumble into the gravel with my bike this week on a past-my-technical-ability hill in Arkansas.  Each rider I’ve dragged recommendation and encouragement out of has informed me that each rider, skilled and newbie, drops their bike.  I positive did stall myself on the sting of a double steep curve attempting to determine easy methods to get myself up and out earlier than unceremoniously tipping my bike and myself down the gravel.  I might hear Will laughing (in his head solely) whereas jogging down the hill to avoid wasting me.  Seems I used to be presupposed to be in first or second gear as an alternative of fourth – OOPS. I get it now. Low gears. Extra revs.  Dropping my bike means I’ve crossed Study How To Experience a Motorbike off my 2022 checklist and I understand how to mud myself on and journey myself again to camp.  It solely took a number of hours earlier than Will and I had been each laughing about my gravel dive.

Have you learnt Wendy from TikTok?

My buddy texts are totally invested in Wendy’s relationship life, highway journeys, and make-up tutorials I can’t clarify it however TikTok is filled with issues we didn’t know we would have liked. (TikTok)


Whereas I’m not totally ready to take the present Yellowstone on as my persona, I’m totally ready to look at Kevin Costner in Wrangler denims and varied cowboy hats of wealth. I’m solely on the primary season and I swear each episode is characteristic movie size however okay YES cowboys. (YouTube)

90’s meals served with sizzling tea

Sara Moulton’s Lengthy Overdue Post-mortem of 90’s Meals Tradition left me wanting extra like, we have to sit down for some actual group, ma’am.  However, I cherished this stroll down Fruit Salsa Lane. (Saveur)


My favourite and most underrated recipe on JtB this 12 months? These Bacon Jalapeno Smashed Hen Burgers. It’s not the recipe itself, although the recipe is elite – it’s the concept that we will smash all kinds of issues into our burger patties which looks like a brand new kitchen ability we should always all carry ahead. (Pleasure the Baker)

What *gestures largely* Y’all Learn

I did fully not sufficient studying this 12 months as a result of I used to be merely not within the temper however even I learn Classes in Chemistry and cherished it.  Y’all positive turned some pages although. I like these lists from trusted readers: Amy Estes, Toby Lowenfels, and Ann Friedman. ( and Instagram)

True Story

My favourite present of 2022 truly got here out in late 2021 however spare me a bit of grace.  Kevin Hart’s True Story is darkish and twisty and a stunning departure from my favourite character from Jumanji 2 (and nobody loves Jumanji 2 greater than me it’s very bizarre). (Netflix)

Joseph the Tradesman

Abby’s Dealer Joe’s Haul goes down as one of the helpful JtB posts of the 12 months and requires a TJ’s splurge for all. (Pleasure the Baker)

Essentially the most compliments on a single merchandise

My favourite frivolous buy of 2022 was this tradition cellphone case.  It delights (and would make a cute Valentine’s Day current to your girlfriends – simply pondering forward!) (Bauble Bar)

The podcasts episode I’d not shut up about

This episode a few aircraft crash and survival within the Andes – it’s greater than the whole lot you would ever by no means need in a narrative and I present no indicators of shutting up about it any time quickly. (Apple Podcasts)
