New Email Series – Baking Made Easy

Crispy chocolate chip cookies with a big CRUNCH when you bite into one! Melted butter, an egg yolk, a little milk and liquid sweetener are the secrets to the best crispy chocolate chip cookies! Recipe on

Let me introduce you to my new (free!) email series called Baking Made Easy. I actually launched this back in November and you may have heard me mention it or even saw a pop-up notification about it when visiting my site. Let’s chat about it.

What’s the Email Series About?

I’ve made 1,000 mistakes in the kitchen. And that was just yesterday. Baking is a science and I love sharing what I learn.

My goal for Sally’s Baking Addiction is to condense, concise, and update– make all my blog posts easier to read and easier to follow. With this in mind, I thought now would be the perfect opportunity to combine some of my best baking recipes, tips, and tutorials into one place: an email course. This series includes some of my most popular posts (that I’ve re-written and condensed!!!!). You’ll receive 1 email per day for 5 days. After that, I’ll send you 1 email per week with additional popular recipes as I update them with recipe notes and easier instructions. Again, it’s completely free just like the content on my blog.

(Honestly there are no gimmicks or sponsorships or anything like that. I just wanted to bring attention to older blog posts as I update them!)

Is This For Me?

It’s a completely free series. All that’s happening is me showing up in your inbox! You don’t need to do anything– no homework– just read, learn, and get excited to apply some of the lessons in your own kitchen.

  • If you’re a new reader, this might be content you’ve never seen before
  • If you’re a beginner baker and want to learn some tried-and-true baking lessons
  • If you don’t feel like scrolling through hundreds of recipes, let me hand pick them for you!!

You can unsubscribe at any time. Seriously no hurt feelings! Whatevs!

  1. I’m so glad you’re doing this Sally!!!! I make SO. MANY. MISTAKES. in the kitchen so it’s great to have someone explain a little more of the ‘science’ behind baking and the what to do and what not to do’s…..:D Thank you so much for all you do Sally….your name is a household word (at least in my house anyhow ;))

  2. I am so excited for this, thank you so much Sally. I love to try your recipes and mine don’t quite look like yours (okay some don’t look at all like yours) so I’m looking forward to your emails.

  3. I am so glad that you are doing this. I am a seasoned baker but still make many mistakes and have so many things I would like to learn. I have come to look forward to and trust your recipes, tips, tricks and insights. Can’t wait for this new series. Thanks for sharing all of your expertise with me and your many followers.

  4. What a great idea! It never hurts to see an updated version of a recipe! Look forward to it and any tips are always welcome! Opportunity to learn something new is a good one as I’ve learned quite a few things from you already, and had that aha moment!

  5. Love the series. I am teaching my 10 yr old nephew to bake. He always brings a set of measuring cups and spoons that fit together into a R2D2 figure. For some reason, we had been baking for awhile last week, and for some reason yeast did not activate. He was a bit concerned. I told him it is natural to have screw ups when baking. Sometimes it just happens. I did not want him to think mistakes were not ok. Frustrating and disappointing, but normal.

  6. Signed up! this is an awesome opportunity to get over the uncertainty of the science of baking…I hope….maybe with this, I can get adventurous with baking. Thanks so much

  7. I am so excited that you’re doing this! I have been a professional for 30 years, (retired now!) and yet still learn new ideas and techniques from you. I love it. Thank you so much!

  8. Thank you for all you do to help us become better bakers. I love your recipes and know anything I make from your site will taste fantastic! You spoil us already with the tips and information you provide. I started weighing all my ingredients because of your posts. Now, when I look at a recipe without weight along with the quantity I wonder if the person that wrote it is really a true baker and teacher like you are.

  9. Just subscribed to Baking Made Easy this morning. Received my first email on 10 baking secrets. Guess what….you can teach an old dog (68) new tricks!!
    Sally, keep up the good work.

  10. Hi Sally! Happy holidays! Thank you for all that you do! Your site is my go to for all baking recipes.
    Have a wonderful 2019, and much appreciate your efforts and your knowledge.
    Best regards, Jenine

  11. Hi sally.. i absolutely love ur precise and easy to follow recipes.. i would love to try ur recipes with cream cheese but where i stay we dont get block cream cheese.. could u post a recipe or a hack that i could use to make the cream cheese?

    1. Hi Arwa! Thank you so much. Some non US readers have informed me that regular cream cheese is just as thick as our block cream cheese. For desserts like cheesecake, try adding a little cornstarch to the batter to thicken it up.

      1. I had tried using cream cheese spread to make ur cream cheese frosting . It turned out tasting good but it was runny. Can I use cornstarch for the frosting and cheesecake recipes. Thanks for ur reply.

  12. I have signed up. I like to read post to learn how to improve baking techniques. And “lessons learned” from mistakes may help me avoid one of the many I make. Best wishes for success in 2019!

    Wishes for tasty dishes,

  13. For some reason, I am not able to sign up for your new email series “Baking Made Easy”. I get an error message “promise is undefined”.


  14. Sorry this is the message I am getting, ReferenceError: ‘Promise’ is undefined. Hope you can help me with it. Love all your recipes and would love new updates on some of the older ones. Thanks for all you do to make recipes more easy to follow.

    1. Hi Debbie! Sorry about that error. Looks like it was a quick glitch and has been resolved. I see you are signed up now though. 🙂

  15. I tried to sign up for “New Email Series – Baking Made Easy” and can’t I keep getting this message:

    ReferenceError: ‘Promise’ is undefined

    Please help

    1. Hi Susan! So sorry about that error. Looks like it was a quick glitch and has been resolved. I see you are signed up now though. 🙂

  16. Perfect timing!! Sally I love your recipes and because of this have decided to 1.) bake more often 2.) become better at it. I am so looking forward to this journey and am excited to get started.

  17. An email subscription I’m HAPPY to receive! Love the blog and the way you explain the “why” behind your recipes. Thanks so much sharing your expertise!

  18. Ugh! Yes, mistakes will happen. I have made biscuits many times and last time I think I put too much butter. They didn’t rise well & looked really buttery when cooking they seemed fine until baking. Tasted fine, but very buttery. They were just so oily they didn’t really rise much. I’m math challenged so…

  19. Hi Sally,
    What a wonderful idea…am looking forward to this new series! I’ve tried many of your recipes (I love baking) and they have all been delicious and impressed my guests…and I’ve shared quite a few! Thanks!

  20. My husband gave me Sally’s Baking Addiction for Christmas, and I couldn’t be happier. I can’t wait to try everything in the book!! Your recipes always turn out perfect!

  21. I love everything you do, Sally, and I did sign up for this because in my “dream life,” I would be able to crank out delicious desserts for those I love and for those whom I want to show my appreciation for, but I have not baked anything since I was in high school HomeEc class, which was at least 20 years ago (and even then, the gingerbread men started on fire at the bottom of the oven). I always think maybe I could try something simple like banana bread, but I have limited space to work with in my apartment and in all honesty, I think I would lose all control and just eat everything sweet, just leading to self-hate. If anyone can get me over my fears, maybe it is you, Sally. If I can’t do it, I’ll continue to admire your gifts to our world from afar. Thank you for creating such a place and being willing to share your talents. Not everyone is so generous.
