27 Random Odds & Ends About Sally

in case you are incredibly bored, here are 27 random factoids about yours truly.
      1. My family nicknamed me “the condiment queen.”  Yes. I LOVE condiments. On everything. Ketchup is practically at the bottom of my food pyramid.
      2. Blogging is not my full time job; it is a hobby that I’m extremely dedicated to. I love connecting with readers and sharing the fun in my kitchen. 🙂
      3. I have seen every episode of Friends and could repeat each and every line back to you in a second. Hi, I’m Chandler, could I be wearing any more clothes?
      4. I went hiking for the first time at age 26. I know. What took me so long?! I’m now obsessed and nothing makes me happier than to hike some trails with my boyfriend Kevin and his dog Jude. 🙂

        jude & i 🙂

      5. I love brussels sprouts. Even the smell. Is that weird?
      6. I’m totally addicted to Pinterest. Even when I’m at work.
      7. Hope my boss isn’t reading this.
      8. I’m an avid list maker. To-do lists, to-bake lists, to-buy lists, bills to pay, songs to download, friends to call, wish lists, want lists, you get the idea. There are at least 5 different lists in my purse at all times. Am I the only one like this?!
      9. I can’t sleep without a fan. Even in the dead of winter, under 10 blankets. I need a fan on. Who likes dead silence? I need white noise!
      10. I’ve broken 4 bones in my life. 3 of which were within 1 month last year. Clumsy, whaaaat?!
      11. When I’m not baking or rambling (sorry this Sally Factoid list may bore you), I’m running or practicing yoga. Or #4. Or #8.
      12. The background on my work computer is sprinkles. i. love. sprinkles.
      13. My car is a parking ticket magnet.
      14. I’ve been making my own mango guacamole for years now. Same recipe. Mango, avocados, tomato, jalapeno, lime, salt. Don’t fix it if it ain’t broke. I’ll never buy storebought guac!
      15. My best friend Marie and I once ate an entire watermelon in one day.
      16. I could probably eat an entire watermelon every day.
      17. I have no idea how to fold a fitted sheet. I’ve been taught before, but I just. can’t. do. it. Heeeeeelp me!
      18. I correct everyone’s spelling & grammar. #NerdAlert.
      19. I have the worst singing voice on the planet. Trust me.
      20. #18 annoys everyone. aaaand so does #19.
      21. I refuse to wear anything on my feet but flip flops or running shoes April – October.
      22. The amount of Orbit Sweet Mint gum I go through is embarrassing.
      23. Forget lipstick or lip gloss, I cannot live without Bonne Bell Vanilla Lipsmackers.
      24. Drinking a glass of milk makes me gag. 😦
      25. I truly believe that the only people you need in your life are the ones who need you in theirs. Hold on tight to good friends!
      26. I’ve had blonde hair my entire life except for 2 hours in a salon when I was 20 when they “accidentally” dyed it too dark. I cried. 8 hours in the salon later, I came out a blonde again.
      27. Why 27? May 27 1985 is my birthday and also my favorite number.

phew! you made it all the way through! now, have a cookie.

cookies n cream cookies



  1. I loved learning more about you Sally and seeing what we have in common! Drinking milk like that makes me gag too, I’m an avid list maker AND I can’t sleep without a fan either even when it’s 20 below. My family thinks I’m nuts. And I like Friends too but for me it’s Seinfeld – I never get tired of them and know all the words and episodes.

  2. We have a lot in common! Both baking addicts but healthy too. Oh, and your birthday is SO close to mine! Mine is May 29th (also 1985!).

  3. Your blog looks great! I just happened upon this and I can’t wait to try some of your recipes! Also LOVE your Odds ‘n’ Ends List. I love making lists too and it’s a great way to tell about yourself. Can’t wait to keep reading you! –Mary Beth

  4. #23! I used to eat lip smakers as a snack when I was in primary school. They never tasted good but the smell kept driving me to try more. I still love the pina colada flavour.

  5. I just found your blog, and I’m really excited. It’s such a fun, lovely, inviting place. I can’t wait to try out some of your recipes. What’s your favorite one?

    • Hi Katie! thank you for the sweet compliment. If you click on my recipe index above, you’ll see that my favorite recipes are starred. 🙂

  6. ok 3-8-15-24 totally describe me too 🙂 I think im one of the biggest Friends’ fan in the entire world, i know all lines by heart, and still watch random episodes regularly !!
    I love making lists, makes me feel more in control, even if i’m not, my best friend is a Marie too and I can’t even stand the idea of cold milk…

    I have a question, you obviously bake a lot (duh), how do you manage to “get ride” of everything? I mean, since i’ve started to make more cookies and cake my fridge is always full cause my bf doesn’t eat any sweets and i just can’t eat everything myself…and I don’t have friends over everyday…it just bugs me cause i wanna try so many stuff !!!!

    • we’re very alike, Mo! after i save/hoard some for myself, i bring the remainder of my goodies to work or i bake them for friends/parties/family.

  7. I heart sprinkles too! My mantra is “sprinkles makes everything better”. Your food looks so tasty. I will have to try some of the recipes for my family.

  8. hahahaa your salon incidence made me laugh (same happenend to me and it was not pretty) .. from that time on I just knew I never ever wanted to be anything but a blonde 🙂
    and bonnebell vanilla lipsmacker is THE BESTEST!! I still have it (among a enormous collection of other lipsmackers in every flavor u could possibly dream of)

    greetings from Vienna, Austria

    xx Doris

  9. I know this is weird but I love the number 27 too! 🙂 Also, share the same deal with having to sleep with the fan on, no matter what the temperature is outside!
