Hot Cross Buns

By Chef Megan Joy / March 21, 2013

Talk about a snow day. It’s the second day of Spring and I haven’t seen it snow this hard in quite a while. It took me over 20 minutes to uncover my car this afternoon! Lucky for me all the work I need to do today allows me to work from home. I am preparing […]


Mountain Cornbread

By Chef Megan Joy / March 12, 2013

Sorry it’s been awhile folks. My family was in town last week and I’ve been busy with Megan Joy Cakes, especially with wedding season right around the corner. But take this as a peace offering- my prized recipe for cornbread. I used to make this for staff meal at the restaurant and it’s amazing served […]


Jam-Swirled Sweet Potato Bread (With Gluten-Free Variation)

By Chef Megan Joy / February 28, 2013

Okay friends, today we have another gluten-free high altitude baking recipe. This recipe can be deliciously made using all-purpose flour as well, so whatever works for you and your diet. I have been experimenting with gluten-free all-purpose flour substitutes and so far have been very pleased with the Cup4Cup brand. There is not a noticeable […]


English Muffins

By Chef Megan Joy / February 20, 2013

Have you ever considered the idea of making your own english muffins? I have to admit, I’d never even thought about it until I saw a recipe in my Breakfasts & Brunches cookbook by The Culinary Institute of America. Sometimes I forget about english muffins. Then during a stroll down the bread aisle, I will […]


Soft Pretzels

By Chef Megan Joy / February 10, 2013

This last week I was fortunate enough to take a little getaway to Telluride with my boyfriend. We’ve visited Telluride before, and it never disappoints. I loved that while we came right on the tails of a winter storm that brought about 35″ of fresh snow, the town itself still remained fairly quiet. On Tuesday, […]


Country White Boule

By Chef Megan Joy / January 28, 2013

We are getting some snow in the mountains today and it is falling down in the most beautiful, fluffy flakes. I wish my camera took pictures fast enough to capture the snowfall. My brother was visiting this past weekend and with the warmer temperatures last week, there was a lot of snow melting. It felt […]


Cheese-Centered Mini Corn Breads

By Chef Megan Joy / January 10, 2013

Well, my house is in dire need of cleaning but I’m going to procrastinate by uploading this new blog post first. Yesterday the beloved Christmas tree came down, and was put to rest back in the mountains where we cut it. Of course it left its mark everywhere in the form of a zillion pine […]


Braided Pistachio Coffeecake & High Altitude Holiday Baking Cookbook

By Chef Megan Joy / November 5, 2012

This last month has been a hectic frenzy of baking for me. Lots of birthdays, special occasions, and my latest little project- a holiday baking cookbook featuring exclusively high altitude adjusted recipes. It will include all of the treats we love to eat and bake this time of year: red velvet cake, spicy peanut brittle, […]


Banana Bread with Peanut Butter Glaze

By Chef Megan Joy / October 24, 2012

It seems a lot of people I meet up here have given up on the idea of being able to enjoy tasty, high altitude banana bread. “You know what I really crave? Banana bread.” I hear it all the time. Let’s change that. I modified one of my favorite quick bread recipes and it came […]


Pumpkin Crumble Muffins

By Chef Megan Joy / September 26, 2012

Last night when I heard the rain on my roof, I had a feeling we’d be seeing some white this morning on the mountains. And I was right. I love when the mountains have snow in the early summer and fall, because they contrast so beautifully with the trees, whether they are green or yellow. […]
