More About Sweetness by Christy Jordan
 
 
 
Overview
Celebrate the sweet spirit and taste of Southern hospitality with Christy Jordan, the voice of Southern cooking for a new generation. Sweetness is a memory made in our grandmother s kitchen. Sweetness is nights on the porch, listening to the old stories. Sweetness is welcoming guests with an open heart. And food: sustaining those same guests with Peach Buttermilk Pie. Greeting the kids and their friends after school with Chocolate Chip Dream Bars. Sitting in the shade with neighbors and cooling down with Blushing Apple Juleps. (Pour some for the little ones, too there s no alcohol.) Or ending dinner on the high note of a Chocolate Chess Pie, because you always need a little something sweet to finish it off, whether a meal or a day.

In Sweetness, Christy Jordan shares 197 recipes for sweet things to eat and drink recipes that are deeply delicious, rich with tradition, often reaching through generations, and designed with today s hectic schedules in mind. Because life is just better when you add a little sweetness.

This slim collection of 197 Southern recipes relies on good old fashioned white sugar, butter, and eggs. Classic cheesecake made easy; coconut cake with “No-Fail Seven-Minute Frosting”; Coca-Cola pie, and the Southern classic hummingbird cake are just a few of the easy-to-bake sweets Jordan includes. Mix-in-pan pie crust, a recipe for homemade strawberry candy, and a box titled “A Recipe to Cure the Grumpies” will help even the most cynical baker warm to the straightforward, genuine tone and touching sentiment that permeate this title. Family memories, including recollections of Jordan’s grandmothers, are interspersed in sidebars, head notes, and vintage photos. Write-ups such as “The Secret to Uncloudy Tea” may inspire even those residing in a chilly climate to feel like sipping sweet tea on the porch on a sweltering afternoon could be just around the corner. (Oct.)
