About Sally’s Baking Addiction
Welcome to my kitchen! My name is Sally. I’m a mother, baker, blogger, author, and food photographer. I live in Maryland with my family and our loveable dog, Franklin.
As a young girl, I spent hours watching my mother and grandmother work their baking magic in the kitchen, especially their pecan pie and soda bread. Is there anything better than the smell of fresh homemade bread in the house? By the time I picked up my first mixing spoon, I was hooked.
I started Sally’s Baking Addiction in 2011 as a personal blog. It was just an easy way to share my baking recipes with friends and family. My small hobby blog quickly ignited a passion for food photography as well as a desire to teach others…not just what to bake, but how to bake.
As a self-taught baker myself, I’m fiercely dedicated to providing well-tested recipes and sharing everything I’ve learned along the way. Before I post a new recipe, you can feel confident that I have already tested it dozens of times in my own kitchen.
This is why Sally’s Baking Addiction has become a trusted resource for anyone who wants to bake from scratch. In addition to the hundreds of recipes on the site, you’ll also find helpful kitchen tips, lessons on baking basics, step-by-step photos, and video tutorials that will help you gain confidence and expertise in the kitchen.
Just a year and a half after launching my blog, I quit my full-time job to build Sally’s Baking Addiction into the business you see today. I’ve written, photographed, and published more than a thousand from-scratch recipes and written three cookbooks.
My one-woman show grew into a talented and dedicated team including Stephanie, Hilari, Trina, and Lexi as well as our video experts, Stronz, Kristopher, Ashlynn, and David.
I’m so grateful this has been my path in life, and I truly hope Sally’s Baking Addiction will be your first stop when you need a recipe for any occasion. I’m thankful you’re here to join the baking adventure!
The next featured baker and business owner is: The Flour Box.
I came across this website when I was searching for cookie supplies, little did I know what I would find!!
The Flour Box~
Where The Flour Box all began…
Anne Yorks, the owner of The Flour Box, is one smart cookie! She started decorating in 2007 when she left the ‘real world’ to be a stay-at-home mom and pursue her dreams of owning and operating her own company. She turned her passion into a business (originally called Flour Box Bakery) in 2010. A baker since a very young age, Anne is self-taught and has perfected her cookies and techniques over years of trial and error.
A few fun things about Anne and The Flour Box:
Anne Yorks graduated from Penn State University in 2001 with a degree in journalism.
The Flour Box headquarters just moved into a brand-new space in Centre Hall, PA. It is set up beautifully for all things cookie decorating. The Flour Box is mainly an online business, but if you want to visit, please schedule an appointment in advance.
The Flour Box isn’t just Anne! She has a team of incredible women who help her run The Flour Box.
If you come for an in-person class with Anne, you should know we are fully insured and maintain a healthy and safe environment for cookie baking and decorating.
So as you take a look at these 2 bakers that turned their love of baking into a business you can do this as well! Don’t want a baking business? You can just enjoy their recipes and products along with the cookie camp to bake for your family in your own kitchen!
