Hello! Thank you for being here. I’m Sally, the writer and photographer behind Sweet Peas and ABCs. I’m also mama to the two most adorable little girls, Em and Addie, and a teacher at heart.
My husband, the girls and I currently live in the great city of Chicago. I’m an avocado-loving California girl originally from sunny Orange County, and Jon is a meat and potatoes guy, from Green Bay, WI (Go Pack!). Em, who has spent her whole life here in Chicago, and Addie, who is just starting her journey into the world of food, get a little flavor of both and are the inspiration behind this blog.
I have always loved cooking and baking for as long as I can remember. Do you know any other twelve year olds that ask for a pasta maker for Christmas?! I distinctly remember coming home from middle school and trying to make my own dough by experimenting with ingredients in the kitchen. Why I didn’t just follow a recipe and actually make something edible, I have no idea. But I had the bug.
These days, I still have the cooking bug and when someone calls and asks where I am, the answer is usually, “in the kitchen.” What’s more is that I’ve now got the itch to pass this love of cooking and eating to my little ones. And hopefully share some ideas that will inspire others to get in the kitchen with their kids.
Check out “About Sweet Peas & ABCs” to learn more about how this all got started and what you can expect to find on my blog.
