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. I tapped into my many fond memories being in the kitchen when I was younger, picked up a camera (and taught myself how to use it!), and the rest is history. In 2013 I made Sally’s Baking Addiction my full time job and I’ve published two cookbooks (this one and this one!).
For more information about how I began my blog, made it my full time job, 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? I’m a from-scratch encourager. Butter, flour, eggs, and sugar can produce millions of unique 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.
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.
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.
