Publisher's Description

You know how those Southern dessert recipes go—a cup of sugar here, a stick of butter there, eight squares of bak­ing chocolate, or a pint of the season’s juiciest fruit. That recipe for blueberry cream pie—it’s been passed around the church for so long nobody can quite remember who made it first. Or how about the one for red velvet cheesecake you’ve been trying to coax out of your sister-in-law for years? She serves it every Christmas Eve, but so far her lips are sealed.

These are the types of food traditions that inspire You Be Sweet—a celebration of Southern dessert recipes and the people who cherish them. In this compilation of stories and sweet treats, Patsy Caldwell and Amy Lyles Wilson peek in on those occasions special enough to demand something decadent, and memorable enough to be repeated time and again. You’ll find the strawberry jam bars that always make an appearance at the neighborhood picnic. The German chocolate cake roll that pulls in the big bucks at the charity bake sale? That’s here too. The blackberry jelly recipe that has graced Mason jars all over the South for decades? It’s here, and it’s just about the best hostess gift you can offer up. Be sweet? You won’t be able to help it!

    Slowly, but surely, this California girl's southern vocabulary is increasing. Thanks to a new cookbook by Patsy Caldwell and Amy Lyles Wilson, I now know what "You be sweet" means. And it's much nicer, than "Well, bless your heart," let me tell you.

    "You Be Sweet" is a collection of down-home desserts. Each chapter or group of desserts opens with a story by Wilson describing a food-oriented event in a small southern town: a holiday, a baby shower, a visit to a relative, a bake sale. Wilson helps her readers see how food helps people connect socially. After all, we all have to eat!

    The recipes themselves are Caldwell's contribution. I loved her comments introducing several of them, telling whom she collected them from or who loves to eat what most. These were an extra-sweet, gently southern touch. Several of these recipes just demand to be created. I look forward to working my way through these. Others seemed a bit complex. Rosemary may have been able to teach Georgia to bake (Chapter 2), but she'd have found a greater challenge in me. Maybe I'll work my way up. The collection includes a little bit of everything, from cakes, pies, and cookies, to fruit desserts, ice cream, punch, and frozen hot chocolate. I'm going to start with the "Sour Cream Blueberry Pancakes with Cinnamon Honey Syrup!"

    I thank Thomas Nelson Publishers for sending a complimentary eCopy of this cookbook for my review. I recommend it to all fans of dessert!

    Patsy Caldwell and Amy Lyles Wilson in their new book, "You Be Sweet" Book Two in the Cookbook series published by Thomas Nelson gives us the ability for Sharing Your Heart One Down-Home Dessert at a Time.

    From the inside jacket flap: You know how those Southern dessert recipes go—a cup of sugar here, a stick of butter there, eight squares of bak­ing chocolate, or a pint of the season's juiciest fruit. That recipe for blueberry cream pie—it's been passed around the church for so long nobody can quite remember who made it first. Or how about the one for red velvet cheesecake you've been trying to coax out of your sister-in-law for years? She serves it every Christmas Eve, but so far her lips are sealed.

    These are the types of food traditions that inspire You Be Sweet—a celebration of Southern dessert recipes and the people who cherish them. In this compilation of stories and sweet treats, Patsy Caldwell and Amy Lyles Wilson peek in on those occasions special enough to demand something decadent, and memorable enough to be repeated time and again. You'll find the strawberry jam bars that always make an appearance at the neighborhood picnic. The German chocolate cake roll that pulls in the big bucks at the charity bake sale? That's here too. The blackberry jelly recipe that has graced Mason jars all over the South for decades? It's here, and it's just about the best hostess gift you can offer up. Be sweet? You won't be able to help it!

    "You Be Sweet" is a cookbook. But not just any kind of cookbook. In addition to the marvelous recipes there are stories, really good stories written by Amy Lyles Wilson. They are all a lot of fun however the one I seem to like best is Chapter 8, When Neighbors Give You Lemons when a neighbor brings a Lemon Cake to welcome the new arrival and the neighbor seems to already know everything about them. On top of that the recipe for the Lemon Cake is included. Everyone likes a great dessert and this is one cookbook that you will find yourself returning to over and over again. This is also a great book to give to friends and family for birthdays or Christmas presents. They will thank you for it and remember you every time they bake. I recommend this book highly!

    I am not a baker nor a cook but this cookbook has me wishing I were. I think I may even try my hands at several of their recipes. You Be Sweet by Patsy Caldwell and Amy Lyles Wilson was more and better than I thought a recipe book could ever be. I was pleasantly surprised with the easy to read instructions, amazing photos, and the sweet stories. I actually had the pleasure of reading this cookbook as if it were a actual novel, which was a first for me. To me this is more than just a cookbook it provides to the soul.
