Baked Sunday Mornings are the best sunday mornings

November 26, 2012 | By matt | Comments

I’d like to introduce you to some really amazing people.  They are sweet, talented (They blog! They bake!), funny, and irreverent.  And even though I have only met a handful of them in person, they all…strangely…feel like friends in an “I-feel-like-I-know-them-via-their-blog” sort of way.

Baked Sunday Mornings is a baking club, which is like a book club except the members bake. And this particular baking club is all about the Baked cookbooks. Consider us humbled, flattered, thrilled and excited. (By the by, they also have a facebook page).

In a nutshell, the Baked Sunday Mornings crew bakes one recipe from one of our cookbooks (everyone bakes the same recipe per the recipe schedule), then they subsequently blog about it. Blog entries vary in length from a few photos and a sentence or two, to longer entries with detailed recipe analysis.

We tend to read each and every blog, because we are fans of our fans, and because we are inspired by the unique takes on our recipes (from minor to major changes) and because we like to gather feedback from the group collective.  We fancy ourselves dessert anthropologists and we are always surprised by what receives group consensus (whether good or bad) and what items are most divisive (hint: almond butter and caramel temperatures).

And the best part (for us anyway) about Baked Sunday Mornings: we got to make some really cool new friends. On the rare occasion where we have been able to meet some of these club members (whether it be in their city or in ours) we have been delighted. The bonds of like-minded bakers are strong bonds indeed.

So, feel free to join the Baked Sunday Mornings crew if you want some (virtual) baking company. And please take the time to read some of the existing members blogs (check out the “bakers” section on the bottom right of the Baked Sunday Mornings homepage) for baking inspiration.

    Matt and Renato– you guys ROCK. Wow, I have never known or heard of authors/chefs/celebrities who are so amazingly down-to-earth, friendly, appreciative, and interested in their fans. It makes me love your books even more! Even though I haven’t had a chance to meet you guys in person yet, I too feel a sort of kinship with you (and my fellow bakers). There is a very unique bond there, and I look forward to meeting you someday soon! Thank you for writing about BSM, and featuring one of my photos– I am honored, flattered, and *thrilled*!! 🙂

    I am speechless, very honored and humbled. Thank you for writing such kind words about BSM, and for featuring one of my photos. Truly, you are too kind. I adore you guys. Thanks for giving me probably my best birthday present – meeting you both AND visiting Baked ON my birthday! – last week. You’re the best – and I hope to see you again real soon! Again, sincerely, thank you!

    The whiskey peach upside down cake was so good we ate it all before the guests arrived!
