Addictive Recipes from a Self-Taught Baker

Autographed Book Plate Giveaway!

Sally's Baking Addiction Cookbook - on sale

My cookbook “Sally’s Baking Addiction Cookbook: Irresistible Cupcakes, Cookies and Desserts for Your Sweet Tooth Fix” is currently available for pre-sale! And will be published on March 1st 2014. If you pre-order it now, you may even receive it in February.

To say I’m excited about this cookbook is an understatement. I’m not going to sugar-coat things. It was a monstrous job developing, testing, baking, styling, shooting, editing, and writing 75+ recipes behind the scenes. Keeping every recipe a secret has been hard!

Hurry up, March.


Cookbook Sneak Peeks.

Ok, let’s rewind for a second. So far I’ve showed you a couple preview recipes from my book. (All 75 recipes will have a photo.)

More Cookbook Details

Grams. You asked me for it, so I’m doing it! Every single recipe is written with both cup measurements and gram measurements.

Photos. Every single recipe has a photo that I styled and shot. I have a bookshelf full of cookbooks and one of my pet peeves is reading a recipe and not seeing a picture to go along with it.

Easy. Every single recipe is just as uncomplicated, approachable, and unfussy as the goodies you know and love from my website.  They’re relatively quick and kid-friendly, too. Perfect for both novice AND experienced bakers.

Healthy. You don’t have to kiss your skinny jeans good-bye.  My longest chapter is my Healthy Choices section.  I love to revamp indulgent recipes to fit a healthier lifestyle.  I include vegan and gluten free goodies as well.

Learn. You’ll learn a few important baking techniques, shortcuts, and lessons. I grew up enjoying pies made from scratch and I’ll show you that homemade goodness is relatively simple.

Yum. You will also learn that s’mores shouldn’t only be enjoyed around a campfire.

  16. I Love What U Do For All Of Us n U Have Helped me Lots. thank You for All Your Time U Put Into This Page

Hopefully if not in the beginning you will have one at some point for those of us who prefer a virtual bookshelf. And THANK YOU for the grams. I LOVE sites who do that instead of me doing the conversions. I really enjoy your site and look forward to more recipes here as well as your new cookbook.

  18. Sally, you are SO inspiring. Recipes without photos are one of my pet peeves too, and I’m really impressed that you added a shot AND a tip to every recipe. You are absolutely amazing! You’re right — March cannot get here fast enough for me!! 😀

  19. You already know how excited I am for you!! I seriously cannot wait till the book is in my hands!! I know it is going to be amazing and I cannot wait to tell everyone I know about it (I kind of already am!)! They will LOVE it! 🙂

  20. Grams are much appreciated. I muddle by, but the whole tablespoon of butter thing makes me think way too much!

  21. I love the cover, Sally. It’s just beautiful. I’m sure the cookbook will be amazing. This would be a great gift for new brides, Christmas, or even at baby showers! (Mom should get something too!) I’m so happy for you.

    Sally, since I pre-ordered the cookbook, will I get it in February or March? so excited for this!! looks amazing!!

  23. Oh Sally, I am so excited for your new book! I think it’s so amazing that you did your own photos. I can’t stand it when cookbooks don’t have photos for their recipes!
