  1. Joy/Tracy,

    Can we have some more detes about Homefries U? I prob won’t be able to attend in April seeing that I will be in school, however, it would be pretty sweet if it was during my Spring Break. Spring Break 2012 – Bakers Gone Wild (wild with crafts and baking, of course).

      Yes! We know it’s going to be in April, but do we have dates?

  2. I feel like I just listened in on a conversation I would have with my bff. So cute! Have a fabulous New Years!

  3. Joy and Tracy, cheers to an awesome 2011 for both of you! I’ve read both of your blogs for awhile now, so Joy when you mentioned there was a podcast, I immediately downloaded it and I haven’t looked back. Your conversations are like the conversations I have with my girls: totally important unimportant talks.
    Joy, congratulations on your book, the podcasts and your top blog on Saveur.
    Tracy, congratulations on the podcast, your column, HomeFries U and coming out of your shell and doing the podcast.
    I’m looking forward to hearing, reading and seeing more of you ladies in 2012.
    (P.S. Joy, you’ve totally inspired me to beef up the ABOUT section of my blog)

  4. I just found your podcast, and am loving it! It feels like I’m listening to conversations of me and my best friends.

    I must admit that every time I hear about homefries u I get a little jealous because I know I will not make it. I live in Belgium, and am about to have my second child.

    I’m so happy the 2011 was a great year for the both of you and wish you nothing but more success and happiness in 2012!!

    I definitely have that jersey! However, mine is a packer jersey and I kinda love it. And you know what, my fiance LOVES when I wear it too (only on game days)! So funny. You must make it to the tailgating earlier and you can get some great food. People can get just as serious about their tailgate food as the football. Much success to you both in 2012. Love the podcast!!

  6. love you guys, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you two! my phone auto corrected lil bro to oil brown which is now the nickname for my son <3

  7. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Tracy and Joy!
    Looking forward to another year of blogs, podcasts, and fun.*

  8. Congrats on being in the Atlantic!! I am more than happy for you both!!

  9. I left this comment on iTunes too, but I forgot a crucial part. So I’ve been catching up on the podcasts and I wanted to bring my computer in to the shower with me so I could keep listening. I left my computer in a safe, dry place and somehow Snoop Dogg’s “Drop It Like It’s Hot” got stuck in my head. Poor substitute. I need a waterproof listening method…

    Dear Joy and Tracy, Happy holidays and thank you for your amazingly addictive weekly podcasts! This is completely unrelated to the current episode, but I just had to let you know that your boy advice is super appreciated. I had to do an awkward “determine the relationship” talk today and I ended up using your words of “if it’s not there for one of us, maybe it’s just not there at all.” Probably the most eloquent words I’ve ever spoken and they were totally stolen from you. Thank you thank you thank you! You ladies are the best.

    Ahhhh the joys of predictive text gone awry! My best friend is now “smoggy” because that’s what iPhone corrected “Amiga” too. Beanbag is pretty awesome though… I will be sharing this story when I see her!

  12. Joy- If you can’t find a Ravens jersey for your cat- perhaps this get-up would suffice?

    Love the podcast! Always brightens my work day.
    Happy New Year Joy and Tracy!

    I’m hoping there’s no judging here….I love your blog, I bake and knit among other crafty stuff….and I’m a BIG Baltimore Ravens fan-and am so jealous you were at that game!! When I heard your story on the podcast, I almost drove off the road as I was screaming “shut UP”. Ravens fans aren’t plentiful in these parts. Now that I’ve nerded out super hard…..I’ll go :)Keep up all the good work, cant wait for the cookbook! Christine

    I was listening to the podcast and was amazed! Cause the other day I was just thinking that not having regrets would be a great (albeit intense) resolution. Also, Joy I like that on your blog you do little seasonal resolutions. It seems so much more do-able that way.

    As always a beautiful, funny, awesome episode – thank you both so much for always making me laugh!

    And Joy – I sympathize with you about that whole being assimilated into sports fandom experience.
    My boyfriend is a HUGE hockey fan, and being Austrian he loves Thomas Vanek and the Buffalo Sabres, so last fall we flew to the NHL season opening in Berlin. Wearing a jersey was a requirement for me too, but instead of being yelled at by Kings fans I made the experience of being smiled at, fist-bumped, etc. by fellow Sabres fans just walking through the city that night – still quite strange, but in a nice way.

    Kate Hudson had a good male equivalent to the lady jersey situation in How to lose a guy in ten days: she took Matthew McConaughey to a Celine Dion concert and bought him a pretty pink t-shirt. Just a suggestion…
