Sally Cooks

Hey there, I’m Sally and welcome to my blog, Sally Cooks, where I do just that. I’m a busy mom with three hungry kids, who loves to cook and bake. Not content with that, I also love to create and adapt new recipes and share my passion for food.

I’m originally from North Carolina, and you’ll be able to get a little of that North-East Coast flavor from my recipes. Like most people, I was taught to cook and bake by mom and grandma. I think that is a big part of what I love about cooking. Sharing recipes and passing them down through generations.

I’ve tried to package my blog, so it’s easy to navigate and find all the help you need. You’ll find sections for all my recipes neatly bundled up for you to browse. Choose pages devoted to beef, pork, lamb, chicken and turkey, cooking with chocolate, puddings, baking cakes, soups, salads, appetizers, and more.

Superfood Ingredients

While I’m no dietician, but I like to watch the calories and make sure my family eat wells. That means I bring you family-friendly meals with often hidden vegetables at a reasonable cost. I also write informative rather than science-heavy blogs, about great super-healthy ingredients, we should be eating more of for good heart, brain, and immune health. 

It’s all very well learning about superfoods, but how do you incorporate these foods into your diet? I love to write blogs about superfood ingredients such as seeds, beans, nuts, fruits and vegetables. And then create fun recipes that even the kids will love.
