A new Joy the Baker podcast is up! We talk about hot air balloons, our current favorite things & we give a listener a challenge! It’s called Close to a Third Party!

There’s also a new High Straightenence post up! Adventures in Meal Planning! I tried out Helen Jane’s technique and liked it!

    I’m obsessed with lists, and these lists are really genius ones! Love them and love the cooking tips 🙂

  • PerBer

    I love your lists!! They are always a good start to the weekend being here! I am guilty of too many of the cooking mistakes.. thanks for posting it!

  • Andrea Merrigan

    I love you lists! You should make it a linky party and others could do a I love Lists, Friday!!! Just a thought. I usually do a weekend wanderings, which is basically the same thing 🙂 Have a great weekend.

  • Dottie

    You have hands down the best lists, and that clam chowder looks so freaking good, I just might need to make that this weekend!

  • Stephie @ Eat Your Heart Out

    I always love browsing through your lists. #3 was especially helpful today! Thank you!

  • Tort[e]s

    That picture of your glittery shoes with the furry orange carpet is just too awesome for words.

    Also, I live near the cupcake ATM. Will be visiting it soon!

  • Kimberley

    You’re the best! Seriously. I love every single one.

  • Joann@womaninreallife

    I love each and every one of those pantries! What is it about women that makes an organized shelf exciting to us?

  • kale @ tastes good to me!

    I really enjoyed the 41 of the most common cooking mistakes. (And #8 on the list is totally my problem!)

  • Rhyann@CookingCollegeChick

    I love this list! Especially the cupcake ATM and your sparkly shoes. Thanks for brightening my day a little. I can’t wait to listen to the podcast too!

  • andrea

    I love this list! and not just because I’m on it. I promise.

    (thank you, friend)


  • Nicole

    A great list, per usual. If you like the idea of neon pink spray paint I suspect you’ll like theglamourai’s GOLD spray painted plastic dinosaurs http://www.theglamourai.com/2012/03/around-the-house.html. So awesome, I feel the need to stock up on some fabulous spray paint colors ASAP.

    PS if you don’t mind me asking, where did you find those adorable glittery flats?

  • Christina

    I die for those kitchen pantries!!!

  • kamran siddiqi

    Thanks for the sweet mention, Tracy! I’m so glad you think that about my cupcakes– means a lot to me coming from you! 🙂

  • Laura

    I read that blog bout the making your bed thing, and I did not see any research posted. Just wondering, because your list said “research shows that…” I am actually a huge nerd and was looking forward to reading a 20 page empirical study on that 🙁 That aside, I have heard about this before; not necessarily that it makes you happy, but that it can help insomnia. Turning down your covers at night acts as a stimulus that tells your brain “it’s time to sleep!”

  • Lori from a family's life

    Great list!

    Loved this weeks podcast!

    Have a great weekend!

  • Nicolle

    You have a great blog but I definitely think the list posts are my favorite. You find such great links!
    Keep it up 🙂

  • Rebecka

    Hi Tracy! I really love your blog and your podcast so so much and your lists make me smile every week 🙂 But I have a suggestion: maybe you could make your links in the lists into that kind that pops up in a new “flap” (you know, not a whole new window but a whats-its-name) ? I really like browsing through the pages you recommend, but then I want to get back to your page again, and I keep getting lost through links… Thank you for being awesome 🙂

    • Tracy

      Thanks Rebecka- Do you right click and open up the link in a new tab? Do you do tabbed browsing? Is that what you are talking about?

      • Rebecka

        I’m not super-high-tech so I’m not really sure – I mean, it could be somthing with my computer. But right-click and open in a new tab (that’s the word I was looking for!) is a great tip! now I wont get lost again 🙂

        • Tracy

          ooh! Did that work? That’s how I browse the web so I didn’t think about opening things in a new window. I’m so sorry about that.

  • Pamela

    Those chocolate cupcakes sure are a thing of beauty, they have me oohing and aaahing as I wonder to myself to get out of my housecoat on this Saturday morning to go get the ingredients, or not. Decisions!

    Also, loved the breakfast tacos – with some tweaks they are going to win over my boyfriends heart one upcoming morning!

  • Clarisse

    Hello Tracy, I wanted to say — I love your blog — but I need those glitter shoes in my life. Please tell me where you got them!!!

    • Tracy

      I got them at a place called DSW like 6 years ago. They’ve held up pretty well, but there’s a part where some glitter is coming off 🙁

  • Emily @ Peck Lif

    I just discovered your blog and wanted to say hi! I love these link lists, thanks so much for all the fun finds! 🙂

  • marci

    Make the chowdah!!! Says this new england gal. :-). Love your pretty ballet flats and that orange rug! Xoxo
