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!

display_description "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" & #13; 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 & #13; 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.
