Sally's Baking Addiction Cookbook Recipe

Ok, I’m back.

You see, the past 5 months have been a complete whirlwind for me. I’ve been writing a cookbook manuscript. My entire summer has been spent secretly developing, testing, baking, styling, shooting, editing, and writing 75+ recipes behind the scenes. My second home has been the grocery store. I have washed the same mixing bowl 400 times. I literally found a sprinkle in my hair.

I even bought a new camera and lens to shoot the entire book!

The cover of the book? That photoshoot took me 5 days, over 300 shots, 12 different napkins, 5 different surfaces, 4 bags of chocolate chips, 3 different plates, arranging sprinkles with tweezers, and stalking the weather for perfect sunny afternoons.

If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you’ve been getting sneak peeks of my cookbook all summer! Look for #sbacookbook.

75+ recipes, 8 chapters:

  • Breads & Muffins (9)
  • Breakfast (8)
  • Brownies & Bars (10)
  • Cakes, Pies, & Crisps (10)
  • Candy & Snacks (9)
  • Cookies (10)
  • Cupcakes (8)
  • Healthy Choices (11)

70+ new and exclusive recipes, and 5 recipes that are already on my blog – a couple of my very favorites that I chose to publish. There are 7 new cookie recipes (peanut butter! oatmeal! sprinkles! butterscotch! macaroons!). Triple layer cakes, a lot of ice cream cakes, a SKINNY cake, a skinny milkshake, salted caramel drizzle everywhere, and the fluffiest pancakes in the entire world.

Oh, there are TWO pink cakes in the book…

The book concentrates on classic recipes that have been revamped in a modern way. Do you need a go-to oatmeal cookie? A tell-all, be-all pumpkin bread recipe? The best darn brownie recipe ever?!


So, what’s in the book?

* 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.

That glazed thing you see? I made it 4 different times. Twice to test it, twice to devour it. That was the day I ran 8 miles. Nothing like a huge slice of coffee-shop inspired goodness to enjoy after a run.

My cookbook is available for sale NOW at any of the online retailers listed (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc).

  1. Is the book going to be published only in the US, or is it international? I love all of your recipes but I live in Europe 🙁

    1. As mentioned in the post, it will be available in stores and online in all English speaking countries on March 1st 2014. I’ll have more information about its availability in other countries when the publishing date gets a little closer.

  7. I LOVE it and your pics are stunning and I know all the recipes will be DIVINE 🙂

  8. Congratulations Sally! I have loved your sneak peaks on Instagram. I am beyond excited to own a copy 🙂

  9. I LOVE your blog. A few of my favorite pinterest pins led me to you, and you have yet to fail me. You are officially my go-to cookie woman.

    As soon as I found out about the cook book weeks ago, I told my husband I would be buying it as soon as it was available. I just bought it on Amazon! March can’t come soon enough!

    1. Thank you so much for purchasing a copy, Beth! I am so glad that you love my cookie recipes. What would we do without Pinterest? You have to let me know which cookie recipes are your favorites.

      1. My family loves your monster cookies and chewy chocolate chunk cookies the best, but we love many others too! My daughter gets very excited about making monster cookies. What I love best is that you describe my favorite kind of cookie – thick, soft, chewy. As I read your description for those two cookies in particular, I knew they were going to be winners before even trying them! I love that you describe what gives them each characteristic, too. It’s like taking a mini baking class over the internet!

        I think I’m addicted to Sally’s Baking Addiction! 🙂

      2. Oh those are the BEST cookies!! I haven’t made them in awhile. Now I think I might make a batch this weekend. 😉

  10. Averie @ Averie Cooks says:

    CONGRATS!!!!! Sally I am so excited for you, proud of you, and this feels like such a big reveal post! I mean you’ve already told readers about it but this is like….all the insider secrets 🙂 love it!

    TWO pink cakes in the book…right there, the book is worth buying. Lol And the flavors you listed from cookie dough to sprinkles, pumpkin, PB, etc. It’s all right up my alley, and no doubt will be a huge hit with everyone!

    The cover shot. Taking it, doing it, styling, the sprinkles w/ tweezers…yeah, I understand! With my cover for my first book they used images that were already in the book and so I didnt have to ‘shoot the cover’. Can only imagine the pressure. Next book, still not sure what’s going on. LOL But you should be so proud of that cover. It totally represents you, your blog, your persona, it’s YOU on a book cover, right there. That is exactly what I envisioned it would be! Pink-ish, sprinkles, cookies. Bravo!

    So happy for you!

    1. Averie. That week was the hardest, most stressful week of my life! I’m not exaggerating. The pressure was skyrocketing and I was running around my apartment like a madwoman, every day. So many cookies. I poured myself into it (as you know!) and I am just so glad that the hard part is over. What an experience! Thank you so much for all the support you gave this summer. All of the advice really helped get me through the challenges. Xoxo
