This is a cookbook focusing on all things sweet and delicious. The first thing I noticed was the beautiful photographs of desserts scattered throughout the book. Patsy Caldwell takes some of her favorite Southern confections and creates a collection of recipes that you'll definitely want to make at home.
Not every recipe includes a photograph, but there are still plenty to keep you turning the pages. The book is divided into eleven chapters. Each chapter begins with personal stories that will warm your heart and give you background information on many of the recipes included. These were really fun to read.
If you love desserts, you need to read this cookbook. I found that I had most of the ingredients at home already. I am really excited to try things like, Doughnut Bread Pudding with vanilla sauce, pink lemonade cupcakes and the Peach coconut upside down cake. I also have a request from my daughter to make the Red Velvet cheesecake. I'm so happy to add this cookbook to my collection!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Booksneeze review program. The opinions expressed are my own and I am not required to give a positive review. ( )

Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"The sharing of food is akin to the sharing of one's heart, and Patsy Caldwell and Amy Lyles Wilson can think of no better way to "be sweet." There are myriad ways to "be sweet," of course, such as volunteering at the homeless shelter, remembering Aunt Carlisle's birthday, and writing thank-you notes. And then there is food: baking a pie for a new neighbor, icing a cake for a coworker who is ill, or mixing up a batch of brownies for a family gathering. As with Bless Your Heart: Saving the World One Covered Dish at a Time, Caldwell and Wilson invite you to consider that the recipes in You Be Sweet are about more than food. They present the opportunity for connection and community and inspire you to serve up a piece of yourself to others as an expression of welcome, sympathy, celebration, or concern. "--… (more)
