Last week, we were delighted to be visited by Ashley Rodriguez from Not Without Salt. There are a lot of truly talented bakers and bloggers out there, but it isn’t everyday you get to not only meet the mastermind behind a favorite cookie recipe, but also share in eating her cookies with her. Until now, that is.
Cookies to the People
Ashley started her career in the kitchen of Spago in Beverly Hills, serving desserts to the most discriminating palates. But over the years she has made her way here to Seattle, where she lives with her husband and three small children – and she has found that feeding her family is the most satisfying and delightful job of her life. Her blog, Not Without Salt is a great adventure in cooking – simple, elegant and delicious, sweet and savory all in one. We suggest that you check it out for recipes and kitchen inspiration.
I happily share my passion for all things salted; sweet and savory, in hope that you too will find pleasure, joy and sustenance in good food. – Ashley
As her blog has grown in popularity, Ashley has seen that her salted chocolate chip cookies are continually a community favorite. And so, she’s now bringing the her cookies to the people! In the cutest little packages, Ashley gives you both the recipe AND the fixins’ for her Salted Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. These tubes of magic are now available on her site’s newly added online shop. That’s right, you can order them online today and be baking and consuming these tasty morsels in less than a week’s time. We recommend buying a few, one for a friend… and a few more for you.
Live in Seattle? Go visit Ashley at her weekly pop-up and have a cookie with her! She will be holding office hours from 10am- 1pm on Wednesday afternoons to chat, share, and sell cookies. It’s at 1405 NW 70th St. 98117.

If you read Mary’s most recent post, you’ll understand that we appreciate the tasty benefits of salt. So trust us when we say these cookies are just perfect – mostly sweet, with a savory touch. All this week we will be asking everyone to send in photos of their favorite dishes using salt via posting to Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #gtpicks. Our favorite entry will be reposted and receive a package of Ashley’s cookie mix on us.
