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 ophthalmology residency programs. We find out where we’ll be living for the next four years in one month. I’m so excited! My son Bronson is 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 lost vision in my eye when I was 19 years old. I’ve had 6 retinal detachment surgeries. I spent a majority of my college years crosseyed, due to the surgeries and retinal detachments. Thankfully, my husband could see past my physical imperfections and he gave me a chance! I’ve since had surgery to correct my eye muscles. I’ve had a molar pregnancy. Why would I share this with you? Because sometimes it’s good to know that other people in life have challenges too. Instead of getting discouraged, I’ve found its best to look for the silver linings. 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!
