A beautifully photographed cookbook of sugary sweet soul food desserts, influenced by the women in author Patty Pinner's family.
Growing up in a large African-American family in a small town in Michigan, Patty Pinner spent her childhood helping the women of the house-the Queens of Soul Food-whip up the sweet treats that crowned family dinners, neighborhood gatherings, and church socials. In SWEETS, Patty shares her family's stories, maxims, and magical desserts, many named after family members like Cud'n Daisy, Aint Sug, and My My, her beloved grandmother. Part recipe book, part family history, this sweet-as-can-be cookbook is a heartfelt tribute to women who ruled the home and the kitchen with their wisdom, hearts, and cooking.
"The family recollections in Patty Pinner's SWEETS are as tasty and satisfying as the recipes." "An appealing collection of rich Southern desserts that are the pretext for a loving memoir of a large African-American family that moved from Mississippi to Michigan."
