Welcome to Sally’s Baking Addiction! My name is Sally and I am the 28 year old writer, recipe developer, and photographer behind the blog. Thanks for visiting! As you can tell, I have a slight addiction to baking…
In addition to baking, I love to take pictures and I love to write. Starting a food blog was inevitable for me. What began as a simple way to share all of my recipes with friends and family has developed into my full time job.
Sally’s Baking Addiction was born in December 2011. For more information about how I began my blog and the different techniques I use, please see my Blogging Tips page. My website is a fun, friendly place for readers to find their passion to bake. It’s all about original, innovative recipes that are approachable for novice and experienced bakers. I am a self-taught baker, learning purely through my experiences. I provide informational posts about different baking techniques and how to use proper ingredients to achieve the best results. The website is focused on the recipes and the “science” behind certain foods and baking techniques. I share my recipe fails and triumphs with readers so that they may learn along the way with me. I want everyone reading to feel like they can be a master in the kitchen!
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 to share with others. My readers will only get the best of the best. To avoid a sugar coma, Sally’s Baking Addiction maintains a balance of indulgent and healthy treats. Oftentimes, my healthy recipes turn out to be my favorites.
You’ll find that most of my recipes are quick and relatively simple. With a big family, a dedication to running, my
boyfriend fiance, our dog, and friends, I favor no fuss, no hassle and easy recipes. Preferably ones that taste like I’ve slaved in the kitchen all day.
Originally from Philadelphia, I moved to Baltimore, MD to attend college at Loyola University where I obtained my marketing degree. Here I met my
fiancé, Kevin. Our dog Jude is a 115 lb German Shepherd/Rottweiler rescue. He is such a sweetie! Jude loves peanut butter almost as much as I do. Almost. I lead an active lifestyle not because of all the treats I bake, but because I genuinely love it. I practice yoga and run in races often.
I worked in corporate finance full time for 4 years before taking a leap of faith and dedicating myself full time to my website. When I am not 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!
My favorite dessert is apple-upside down cake, my favorite TV show is How I Met Your Mother, and the only books I read are cookbooks. I’m terribly boring!
