I’m so happy you’re here! Grab a cookie, take a seat, and let me introduce myself.
I’m Sally. I like to take pictures, write, 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. Often with a lot of sprinkles and even more exclamation points.
I’m a self-taught, mom-taught, grandma-taught baker. I’m also a laundry-avoider, but that’s a whole other story. I live in Maryland with my husband, Kevin, and our dogs, Jude and Franklin. My favorite dessert is apple pie, coffee keeps me sane, running keeps me content, yoga keeps me balanced, and watching Friends reruns keeps me laughing. I also type run-on sentences, read cookbooks as if they were novels, and enjoy staying in my pajamas as long as possible.
About Sally’s Baking Addiction
I started this blog 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 tapped into my many, many, MANY memories being in the kitchen when I was younger, picked up a camera (taught myself how to use it!), and the rest is history.
A year and a half after launching my blog, I quit my full time job to build Sally’s Baking Addiction into a business. Since then, I’ve published two cookbooks (this one and this one!). My cookbook and blog recipes are classic and approachable, inspired by my favorite seasonal flavors and recipes passed down in my family. I also enjoy writing informational posts about different baking techniques and how to use proper ingredients to achieve the best results. I share my recipe fails and triumphs so readers can learn along the way with me.
My goal is to help readers feel like a master in the kitchen!
And, more importantly, I want everyone to enjoy the experience of making really really good desserts. In butter and chocolate, we unite!
