I have spent many Sundays weaving my way through and working on Joy Wilson’s recipes from her first cookbook, “100 Simple and Comforting Recipes.” This recipe is our last Sundays with Joy recipe from that book. Do you know something? It was hard for me to make this recipe. We have finished the final chapter in the cookbook. I have been on this virtual journey, connected with other virtual people who have a passion to try out recipes as well, for quite a few years. “I am working on a Joy recipe/ post” I would tell whomever was near, as I escaped to the kitchen or desk to get the words, experiences and pictures out into the great big wide world.
This recipe will not be the last one by any means! “Homemade Decadence” has hit the bookshelves and I cannot wait to get my hands on it! But this is the last recipe from this book, making it with these people and it is sad to see this chapter close. I paired this cream cheese pound cake with two of my favorite things: blueberries because they will forever and always remind me of my wedding and ginger because it will forever and always remind me of being pregnant! Somehow, in my mind, this was the perfect pairing for this moment in time. Come on, let me show you what a snap this was to prepare!
