Sally's Baking Addiction Cookbook - Giveaway

How is this possible? It’s been 2 years (tomorrow!) since Sally’s Baking Addiction cookbook’s release. Two entire years since March 1st 2014, the day I officially became a published author to the world. I cried the first time I held the book in my hands because I’m a total SAP / it was my proudest moment yet.

I mean, when I wrote this cookbook I had just quit my full time job to pursue this whole author/blogger thing full time. The whole experience was surreal! Since then, I’ve written a 2nd cookbook and traveled the country to meet you, give you a giant hug, talk your ear off, and sign your book(s)! It’s been a whirlwind 2 years and I’m not stopping this whole cookbook writing thing anytime soon. 🙂

  26. Sally’s Baking Addiction has gotten me through some tough culinary times…

    Last year, I had a friend who had a potluck at work and her St. Patty’s Day brownies were ruined by a clumsy incident. After this, I stepped in and we together quickly found that the Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Brownies would be the showstopper item! With the thick fudgy brownie and the cheesecake that sneaks it’s way through each bite, they were QUICKLY gone! And you know what is the worst part? We didn’t even have time to TRY these delicious creatures before somebody snatched them up! We went home, exhausted, just to make more!

    Thank you, Sally, for your easy recipes. You make everything colorful, fun, and truly inspiring to an upcoming photographer to see your beautiful photos.

    • Woops! Typo, **MINT Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Brownies** You CAN’T forget the mint! 🙂

  28. Congrats on the two year with the cookbook. I’ve made many of your recipes but my favorite is probably the lemon blueberry layer cake. I’ve taken a couple of cake decorating classes and this is an awesome recipe to go to. I also really appreciate your tips with frosting and some of the info on the science of baking. I think I’m going to try the strawberry frosted donut recipe next. Thanks for all you do!

  29. I love bringing your cake batter chocolate chip cookies, they are always a crowd pleaser and so easy to make in big batches, they always go so fast! 

  30. My favourite are peanut butter chocolate chip cookies!
