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. Thank you Kelli!

  11. Sally,

    I told your sister I was so excited for your book to come out and she was glad to hear it. I made your pumpkin spice cookies twice and they all got devaltered very quickly. I was told at work to make another batch soon which of course I will. I hope to some day meet you and when I get a book of yours get it signed by you. And now I know where you get some of your list habits from and that would be of course your oldest sister. Best of luck with all!!!!

    1. I’m so happy that you love those pumpkin spice cookies, Corinne! They are one of my very favorites. I would love to autograph a copy for you! Yes, my sisters and I are ALL about lists haha!

  12. Looks lovely! Can’t wait. Preordered 🙂 Supporting my favorite bloggers when they publish cookbooks is one purchase I NEVER second-guess. Congratulations!

    1. thank you thank you thank you Lizzie!

  13. Yours is probably the only “dessert” cookbook I would ever purchase. Thanks for all your hard work and dedication to all things baked! 😉 Today’s gloomy weather had certainly put me in the mood to bake.

    1. Thank you so much Annie, I appreciate it!

  14. THANK YOU for putting them in grams!! I LOVE all of your recipes, but that will make it so much easier to convert them to use with gluten free flours! I had success with the sky high muffins, but it’s tough to get the ratios of flours right. Seriously, so excited that you did this! Thank you!!

    1. SO happy that will be helpful for you Chelsea! Thank you.

  15. I just pre-ordered and I’m SO excited for you! March is always a “blah” time of year for us in Western PA (Philly was probably the same way), while we’re waiting for the never-ending winter to melt away, so having your book show up will be such a delight!! I hope I’m one of the lucky winners of the book plate, too! What a great idea! I just LOVE all your recipes, and so do my kids/hubby! Congrats on seeing all your hard work come to fruition! 🙂

    1. March is very “blah” – you are right! Not quite spring & still chilly. You just want warm weather at that point! I’m so happy that you love my recipes Sara. And thank you so much for pre-ordering!

  16. Julie @White Lights on Wednesday says:
