Joy Wilson believes that everything is better with pie. And caramel. And definitely ice cream. Her world is pretty sweet: she dabbles daily in butter and sugar as her blogging alter ego, Joy the Baker. Her new book, Joy the Baker Homemade Decadence, is packed with 125 of Joy’s favorite, supereasy, most over-the-top, totally delicious treats, such as Dark Chocolate, Pistachio, and Smoked Sea Salt Cookies; Butterscotch Cream Pie with Thyme-Marshmallow Meringue; Mint Chocolate Chip Cake; and Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream. After all, every day is an opportunity for sweets.

"I've been a fan (and friend!) of Joy's for years and have consistency seen her pour her heart and soul into everything she does. Her gloriously decadent-but-doable cakes, pies, brownies, cookies, and scones never fail to entice me, and I've had utterly scrumptious success making her recipes in my own kitchen. Joy's new cookbook, Homemade Decadence, is positively dripping with deliciousness, and I've already marked several recipes I want to try as soon as possible. It's a sweet and sticky triumph!" —Ree Drummond, author of The Pioneer Woman Cooks
