    1. If you appreciate the legacy of women who carried our history with them in the treasured recipes which might be handed down through time, Sweetness is the book for you. It is a memoir in recipes, gathered from the stained old cookbooks and tattered clippings of the author's dearest relatives, living and gone. Christy Jordan is a Southerner and grew up among those who believed that a meal must have a sweet ending. Both classic and adaptations of recipes for traditional favourites such as Chess Pi [...]


    2. I really enjoyed this cookbook. Baking is one of my favorite things to do but I'm often in a hurry and don't have the time to do labor intensive recipes. In this I found a lot of things I could do in a shorter amount of time. There were numerous recipes with various levels of skill needed (but none were too hard). There were also recipes that had "cheats" if you will, premade cake mix, bisquick, etc as ingredients. While those are not always my favorites sometimes that's all the time I have.The [...]


    3. Oh my! This book made me want to crank out my apron and baking supplies. So many recipes I made a bookmark at. There’s recipes on cookies, cakes, drinks, and even “go-to recipes” that should be in your pantry. The chapters are divided into the kinds of recipes. Each chapter has many recipes. I honestly couldn’t finish counting before I attacked my phone with slobber and licks.Aside from the recipes, there are small posts about love, family, growing up and appreciating the little things. [...]


    4. I received this book as an advance reader copy from NetGalley.I am not a baker or a candy maker. The precision measurements, temperatures, and timing of baking and candy making are usually too much for me to handle. And I am a New England native of Italian descent, so my idea of dessert is fairly well fixed to include seasonal fruit pies, ice cream from the local farm, and the occasional delicacies from the Italian bakery down the street. However, the allure of Southern recipes for sweet treats [...]

    6. Much like Christy's previous 2 books, Sweetness, with 295 pages, is filled with her personal stories and memories, with all 197 dessert recipes having their own stories as well. My mom and dad were gave signed copies of the book to my sister and me this Christmas after meeting Christy at a book signing (although mom already had our books). We were making dishes from her blog well before her first cookbook, Southern Plate, was published in 2010. Her recipes are all still simple and delicious, and [...]


    7. I love her recipes as well as her stories. I follow her on social media and she is wonderful. She seems down to earth and very sweet. I have written a ton of her recipes down and have tried many. She is amazing and I would recommend this, and her other books to anyone.


    8. Sweetness by Christy Jordan is a perfectly sweet book as cookbooks go. The author has included plenty of sweet recipes, cooking tips, friendly tidbits reminiscent of her blog posts, and color photos illustrating her cookbook.I particularly loved reading her recipe intros and blogger type writing sprinkled throughout her cookbook. I can't wait to try some of her recipes as she's included many attractive sounding recipes that I am sure will taste mighty fine once prepared. There is a heavy emphasi [...]


    9. I received a time-limited electronic copy of this cookbook for evaluation and review.I enjoyed reading this cookbook as much as the recipes. It was full of inspirational tidbits, stories, and reminiscing. I loved the story of how "Old Scrap Iron" got her name. There are lots of recounted memories from times go by of older generations that I just really loved reading. There was lots of true wisdom there and a lot of times I found myself laughing, and it brought back fond memories of my own. It's [...]



    10. I adore everything about this cookbook. I have bought many a cookbook, especially of the southern variety, and I have not found a southern baking book better than Sweetness by Christy Jordan. It is important to me that the recipes are on the simpler side, and the ingredients are easily obtained. Think about your family favorites. They are usually more simple in method. I think that's because the recipes that get made over and over again and become a part of your family story are the ones that ar [...]


    11. *Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review* I really liked this book, it was the first cookbook that I entirely read!! The recipes are all great and I saved some of them to practice(since I am just a beginner). But, if you are just starting in baking and cooking, I think there are some recipes easier than others. It's a pity that there aren't a lot of pictures to take as a reference, I want to know how it is supposed to look like [...]


    12. Literally five minutes after I've decided to go on the paleo diet, I get approved to review this book. And there goes my resolution out the window.I'm far from being a baker (too science-y) for me, but Christy Jordan really nailed it in the beginning of her book when she mentions that her dad was a policeman and worked multiple jobs to allow for her mother to stay at home to raise three children (similar to my upbringing).The recipes in the book are really easy and cost effective, if you're okay [...]


    13. Unfortunately this book is not for me. I like to make everything from scratch, no shortcuts, and I found that this book had too many recipes with "shortcuts" such as using bisquick, pudding, cake mix, etc. If I'm going to spend money on a cookbook, I want every recipe to be from scratch. I also like to see what I'm making, before making it, and there were not enough pictures in this book for me. The pictures that were provided were gorgeous. If you are ok with using cake mix and brownie mix, etc [...]


    14. This is my favorite cookbook in a long time. I love a cookbook that has memories, stories, etc in it, and this one doesn't fail me. The writing is delightful, the photos are super tempting, and the recipes aren't overwhelming. I love that she gives options to change it up, whether because of taste preference, mood, or ingredients.I'm dieting, and this one definitely made me fall off the wagon. That saide also gives tips on freezing ahead of the holidays, etc. LOVED this book. I've already bought [...]


    15. This is a great book if you are in the mood for some good ol' fashion comfort food. There are so many recipes that bring back Americana and old family memories. I'm not from the South, but a lot of the recipes are familiar and seem reasonably simple to whip up. The Cookie Jar section had to be my favorite, although there were other recipes that definitely caught my eye and were bookmarked for later baking/making. This would make a great selection or even a gift for anyone who likes to indulge th [...]


    16. 4.5 Stars. I received a copy of this title in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley. What a delightful cookbook! From the recipes to the gorgeous layout, this book had me hooked. The recipes are desserts that my family would enjoy and I'm looking forward to making a few of them. One small quibble that would have made it a five star rating is that I wish that there were more photos of the recipes, but the photos that are included are beautifully shot and presented.


    17. ARC provided in exchange for review. I didn't love it but didn't hate it. There are better cookbooks out there. I love pictures and there were few, instead there were little family stories. Also there was more than one recipe per page. I love the old pyrex clip art. My grandmother used to have those dishes.


    18. I really couldn't get behind this book. First of all and mainly because there were very few pictures. This for me is a big turn off. It was not a single recipe per page there were multiple per page and sometimes for me they ran together. I found nothing in this that I would ever like to make that was different from any other cookbook like this.


    19. I received the ebook in exchange for an honest review.I knew when I would start this book, it would be very hard to stay still. The book contains a lot of lovely bakery recipes and the water started running my mouth. I loved it very much and now I'm going to duck into the kitchen :).


    20. I made the All American Chocolate Cookies. Altered the recipe slightly and made it with M&M's instead of chocolate chips. They're delicious. I did however find it weird that a lot of the recipes had cake mix listed as an ingredient. But the cookies were good.
