Welcome to my kitchen! I am Whitney, the writer and founder of the blog, Salt & Baker. My maiden name is Baker, and I love salt. So lo and behold, Salt & Baker! I wanted a place on the internet where I could share my love of food photography and my love for all things food. I love that food brings people together whether it be family, friends, neighbors, or strangers. In the end, food is a reason to gather and enjoy the company of the people around us. Like you, a lot of my memories growing up involve food. I hope my corner of the internet inspires you to get in the kitchen and then share your creations with the people around you. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you stick around.
Tell me more!
This is my little family. My husband Alex is a 4th year medical student at the University of Utah medical school. He is currently applying for residency programs. We find out where we’ll be living for the next four years in just a few short months. I’m so excited! My son Bronson just turned 3 years old. He is a FIREWORK! He makes me experience all the emotions. He talks all the time and has the cutest manners. “Mom, please play with me for 5 minutes.” I hear that 70 times a day. It’s so cute. He brings so much joy and light to my life. He also tries my patience on the daily. But kids are such a blessing. He is mischievous, but so tender hearted.
I believe in working hard, and being honest.
I’m 100% blind in one eye. I’ve had 6 retinal detachment surgeries. I broke my jaw after falling 10 feet. I’ve had a molar pregnancy. Life isn’t perfect. But life is beautiful! In time, maybe I’ll share more about some of my crazy life experiences. But for now, I’ll continue to share delicious food with you!
