Reviews Sally's Baking Addiction

  • Rachel
    I was so happy to get this for Christmas last year, as it is my first cookbook created by one of the many foodie bloggers (back before they were super popular and everyone knew them)! ;) I've made a few things like the scrumptious cookies on the cover, blueberry muffins, and some blondies! All delicious! I love that she's included various categories, so it's not all sweets (though there are lot's of sweet things to make, of course). She has a few...

    Sally's blog is my bible and I'm so happy to add her cookbook to my stash! She has so many great tips throughout the cookbook, plus a few recipes I normally wouldn't have considered just perusing her website.

    I made the salted caramel cheesecake dip, it was really easy. This was my first time making caramel, and the book walked me right though it. Delicious!
  • BRNTerri
    This is a very nice hardcover book that has a photo of every recipe but not always one of the finished product, with the oatmeal scotchies being an example of that. At the time of this review I've made seven recipes. All but two of them turned out good. The sugar cookies and peanut butter cookies are truly great recipes with the sugar cookies being the most versatile since you can add anything to the dough- nuts, chocolate chips, dried fruit, ect...

    I received this as a gift and have made a couple a few recipes s far, which have been delicious. All have been fruit based so far as I've been taking advantage of all of the summer fruits which are in season. I appreciate "Sally's Tips" that she includes with the recipes. This is a great addition to my cookbook collection.
  • Cristy
    The recipes I’ve made from this book have been solid. It loses a star for me based on the copy; I don’t need emphasis throughout on “quick” and “easy”. The photography is excellent but the formatting of the recipe pages are cluttered. 3.5 stars
  • Shealyn Kenny
    Sally's recipes are my bible for real
  • Gloria
    I've followed Sally McKenney's blog for a while and every time I make a recipe from her blog it's always a success. I picked up this book because 1. I love baking 2. I love recipes 3. I love cookbooks. This cookbook doesn't disappoint. There are really helpful tips and reminders for each recipe, visually the layout of each recipe isn't overwhelming and the steps are all easy to follow. I've made a couple of different recipes from the book but my ...

    Sally’s Baking Addiction is a visual delight. In the opening section, Sally shares her list of kitchen essentials and provides more details about the ingredients (such as which brands and types of peanut butters she used).The book primarily consists of recipes – 76 in total. In each recipe, there’s a “Sally Says” section that includes tips or more details.The book also includes vibrant photographs (usually two or three for each recipe),...

    Love! Love! Love! I am a decent baker, but not anything particularly spectacular. With the help of this book I was baking like a pro without any special equipment or complex instructions. The directions are short and simple. The pictures are gorgeous and the pages high quality. The baked goods are DELICIOUS. In short, this is a great cookbook.The 77 recipes in this book are divided into eight sections: Breads and Muffins, Breakfast, Brownies and ...
  • Bianca
    I love this cookbook, it has tons of great recipes and a perfect number of well-taken photos. The tips at the beginning of the book are quite helpful and I have not made a single bad recipe from this book.Recipes I've Made:Cinnamon Roll BlondiesI've made these twice before and they are SO GOOD. They taste just like cinnamon buns yet are really easy to make. The icing has never turned out perfect- would tweak that a bit, but definitely not a dealb...
  • Colleen Mc (The Book Lover Blog)
    A few years ago, I came across Sally’s Baking Addiction Blog when I was browsing the internet for a cupcake recipe. I decided to try her Lemon cupcakes (which made it into in the cookbook) with vanilla buttercream frosting and they were a huge hit with my family and guests. They were sweet, moist and had just the perfect hint of lemon. Since then, I’ve followed Sally’s blog, trying out many recipes for many occasions. I wasn’t surprised w...

    Confession: I am not a good baker. With only a few attempts at making cookies, the cookies always come out as a thin cake. The cupcakes I make are always too sweet, or unevenly mixed or don’t look nice. I came across this book at work and flipped through the pictures. The photographs are absolutely beautiful and appetizing! I happened to have macadamia nuts on hand, so I decided to make the White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Blondie. I only had a ti...

    I love this book. I love the layout, that there are pictures of every item, that Sally measures in cups/spoons and weight and the variety of recipes. This book also makes my rule for buying a cookbook: easy-to-find ingredients. Most of the called for items, I stock in my kitchen regularly - makes it easy to whip together a batch of anything!I highly recommend this book (it makes a beautiful gift, too)!
  • Pammie
    Very good recipes, the ones I tried were delicious. I made her cookies and tried chilling the dough but the result for me was the same as when I do the Nestle recipe and don't chill the dough. Disappointed that the trick didn't work to make me thicker, chewier cookies. Still a great collection of recipes for anyone looking to add a few new desserts to their repoirtoire.
  • Cassie
    A solid book with a strong voice from its blogging author, though not as charming as a similar book I've read recently. There are a lot of well-explained basics on which one can build a variety of baked goods. However, the author's tone can seem a bit condescending, and that distracts from the book, at least for pleasure reading purposes.
  • Diona Young
    So much yummmmThere were so many drool-inducing recipes in this book and each one has a mouth-watering picture. Best of all, none of them seems too aspirational! Valley's recipes and guidance or clear, fun, and make you feel 100% capable.
  • Minna
    I made the mistake of thinking I could just check this out from the library. BIG mistake. Nope, a quick perusal pretty much informed me that this is one I need to buy, pronto. I think I want to make - and eat (!) - every single thing in here.
  • Karen
    I have already made the coconut macaroons. They were delicious and easy. I cannot wait to try another recipe. Sally makes recipes with easy to find ingredients and offers suggestions for substitutions.
  • Cagne
    Appealing graphics, appetible pictures, the book is structured as one full page photo matching one full page recipe, gold for the visually inspired people that don't find a recipe complete without seeing the result.
  • Heather
    I love that this book is a collection of recipes from my favorite food blog. I can't wait to try all of the recipes. Love the Sally says sections and how there is an introduction for each recipe.
  • Teresa
    This has the most delicious-looking desserts! Every dessert has a picture, which I LOVE! My favorite chapter is the Cookie chapter. Cookies are yum!
  • Ann Marie
    A lot of good recipes with simple ingredients usually kept on hand or easily picked up.
  • Nicole Villaseñor
    The best desserts!!
  • Christina
    Normally I don't review cookbooks, but I love, love, love this one! I'm a huge fan of the authors food ( and now photography ) blog and her first cookbook is just as wonderful.
  • Danielle D
    One of my favorite go to cookbooks for desserts! Never fails me!
  • Carole Lightner
    Can't wait to start baking.There are many recipes I want to try. I liked the introduction, very easy to read, a lot of good information.
  • heather mc

  • Sarah Steding
    I got an early copy of this and I'm blown away! Every recipe sounds incredible and the ones I've made are so delicious. Well done, Sally!
  • Saskia
