For me, Sweetness by Christy Jordan is the quintessential Southern cookbook, containing recipes reminiscent of those you’d find on handwritten index cards in your mother’s recipe box or in local fundraising cookbooks. Reading the memories Christy shares from her grandmother’s kitchen, I was transported back many years to my own grandmother’s kitchen, standing in a chair at her kitchen table, stirring the batter for her famous chocolate cake.
Sweetness, Christy’s third published cookbook, contains more than 190 recipes and was dedicated to and written in honor of her grandparents. Christy’s warm and inviting writing style will make you feel like a part of her family, and her easy-to-make recipes are perfect for creating sweet memories in your own kitchen.
