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).

  22. Hi Sally,

    I am Marije from Holland and I came in contact with your amazing recipes through Pinterest. I simply don’t know what to make first and will be trying out a number of your delicious recipes. I cannot wait to get your book ordered by my friend in Scotland, hopefully your book will be available in March 2014 there also.

    Love you blog, the combination with mouth watering pics, your writing and the recipes is a true winner. Keep it going!


    1. Hi Marije! The cookbook will be available in Scotland. I am making sure of it! I am 80% Scottish after all. 😉 I’m so glad you found my blog. Thank you for your excitement about my cookbook!

  23. Hi Sally! Love your recipes they’re sooooo amazing! I live in the UK and I will defnitely be wanting to buy the book when it comes out? Just wondered, will it have ALL the recipes from the website? It would be nice to have all the recipes in one place, I love cooking from a book!

    Thanks xxx

    1. Hi Rozina! The book will be available in the UK, yes. My cookbook will only have 5 recipes from this website and there will be 70 new ones. I don’t have anythign in print with all of my current blog recipes though.


    1. That is still to be determined! Thanks for your excitement Erika!

  25. Hi Sally! I stumbled upon your blog looking for an amazing chocolate chip cookie recipe. I have to say that I’ve been a fan ever since. Your photographs are absolutely appetizing! Every time I visit your blog I feel inspired to bake. Congratulations on the book and I’m super excited for you. I cannot wait to get my copy. By the way what type of camera do you use to take pictures? My mouth just waters looking at them.

    1. Thanks Desiree! I’m so glad that you enjoy reading my blog and that I inspire you to get in the kitchen. 🙂 Here is a lengthy post I wrote about my food photography. It’s updated with my current equipment:

  26. I just pre-ordered two! One for me and one for my sister who loves all the treats I make from your site (maybe your book will inspire her to try her hand at baking).

    1. Hi Anne! Thank you so much for the support. I can’t wait for my book to come out!

  27. Sally, I’m sooooo excited for you. Your book and getting married on the same day! Ahh!!! That truly is going to be the best day of your life!! But I have to ask I’m dying to at least know what is the name of the recipe that is on the cover of your book. It looks absolutely delicious!! And you did a fabulous job at photographing it, all the sprinkles and chocolate chips were perfectly put in the right places. It looks gorgeous, I can’t wait for the book, its on my Christmas list already.

    1. Hi Jessica! My book is actually coming out on March 1st 2014 and we’re getting married on Sept 20th 2014. Sorry is that was confusing in this post! Anyway, thank you so much for your excitement. Unfortunately the book won’t be available until after Christmas. But you could certainly have the pre-order on your list!

      The cover of the book is my Cake Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies. I changed the recipe from this one very slightly. This recipe is one of the 5 that are available on my blog:

  28. Hi Sally,

    Any change of sharing the cup measurements in grams, the basics so I can actually start trying out your recipes? In Holland we always use grams.


    1. Hi Marije, I’m not sure what you are asking? I note in this post that my cookbook has both gram measurements and cup measurements for all recipes.

  29. I can’t believe I didn’t see this post until now – I have been waiting expectantly for your book to go on pre-sale but I have now placed my “order”. So excited for you, have loved reading your posts as you toiled away. Very much looking forward to seeing it live!! Congrats!!

    1. Hey Amy! Thanks so much for pre-ordering! I am excited for the book too. 🙂 Thank you again!

  30. Congrats Sally!!! Your recipes are AMAZING and your pictures are GORGEOUS!!!! Your site is beyond addictive! Can’t wait to own this cook book!
    So happy for your success!

    1. I am so happy you’re excited for my cookbook Erika! Thank you so much for the support and congrats. Means the world to me.
