Addictive Recipes from a Self-Taught Baker

SBA’s 200th post: Dedication to my Readers

Thank you to my readers!

For Sally’s Baking Addiction 200th post, I’d like to direct the attention to my readers. A post dedicated to everyone and anyone who has stopped by to say hello on my little internet space.

Every now and then, you email, tweet, message, or post photos of my recipes that you have made yourself. I can’t tell you how HAPPY it makes me to see that my recipes are being made by you!  It’s truly the reason why I love having a website and blogging so much – to share my love for baking with others.  The thought of my recipes being made across the world is incredible.

Earlier this month, I began drafting a post dedicated to all of my readers.  A huge THANK YOU for all of the support, encouragement, and inspiration.  I feel very fortunate to be doing something I love and connecting with so many others.  You send me clever recipe ideas and touching stories about how you made & loved them.

I asked you for more photos and permission to use your first names, so I could show them off to the world. It was wonderful to connect with all of you. MANY thanks for everything. 🙂

Take a look at ALL of the masterpieces from around the world.

You guys sure do love your cookies. And cake batter. And peanut butter!

A very, very big THANK YOU to everyone who has written to me, sent me their recipe masterpieces, commented, given feedback, tweeted, connected with me on instagram, or commended my recipes and/or my photography.  It has been a triumphant year for SBA:  friendships made, lots of hurdles to jump over, lots of photography lessons to learn, technical glitches, time management, baking disasters to rise above, etc.

I could not have done ANY of it without you, my readers.  Thank you for absolutely everything!

Happy Baking!
