Hi! I’m a baking addict. But first, I’m Sally. I like to take pictures, write, run, and bake. Scratch that, I’m addicted to baking. The kitchen is where my creative juices flow and Sally’s Baking Addiction is where I can share it all with you.
About My Blog
I started this space to document my life after college, mostly to share the recipes I baked on the weekends. I was in my mid-twenties, working in finance, and felt a little lost in both my career and my life. I began searching for something new to take on– something to call my own. I tapped into the many fond memories I had being in the kitchen when I was younger, picked up a camera (and taught myself how to use it!), and the rest is history. It took some time and many late nights, but I’m thrilled to say that Sally’s Baking Addiction is my full time job. For more information about how I began my blog and the different techniques I use, feel free to browse my posts about blogging.
Sally’s Baking Addiction is a fun, friendly place for readers to find their passion in the kitchen. About the food? Well, I’m a from-scratch encourager. Butter, flour, eggs, and sugar can produce millions of delicious recipes. My recipes are classic and approachable, inspired by my favorite seasonal flavors. A lot of my inspiration comes from recipes passed down in my family. I am a self-taught, mom-taught, grandma-taught baker, learning purely through my experience. The recipes on Sally’s Baking Addiction are mostly all developed by myself. I bake through trial and error, testing recipe after recipe to find the perfect result. On my blog, you’ll only get the best of the best.
But it’s not just about the recipes. I enjoy writing informational posts about different baking techniques and how to use proper ingredients to achieve the best results. I like to share my recipe fails and triumphs with readers so they can learn along the way with me. I want everyone reading to feel like they can be a master in the kitchen. Not only that, I want everyone to enjoy the experience of making really really good food.
I grew up and currently live in Philadelphia. I graduated from Loyola University with a degree in marketing and met my husband, Kevin, while living in Baltimore. Our dog Jude is a 115 lb German Shepherd/Rottweiler rescue. Jude loves peanut butter almost as much as I do. Almost.
I worked in corporate finance before taking a leap of faith in 2013 and dedicating myself full-time to the development and growth of this blog. When I’m not working on the computer or spending time with friends and family, you can find me baking in the kitchen or behind the camera. Thankfully I am a ball of energy to get through it all. Lots of coffee helps. Follow me on Instagram to see what I’m up to everyday.
My favorite dessert is apple pie, my favorite TV show is Friends (and I annoyingly quote every episode as I watch), I love to run and practice yoga nearly everyday, and the only books I read are cookbooks. I also type run-on sentences and enjoy staying in my pajamas as long as possible.
