Praise for Patty Pinner's Sweets: Soul Food Desserts and Memories

"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." --New York Times Book Review

"The family recollections in Patty Pinner's Sweets are as tasty and satisfying as the recipes." --O: The Oprah Magazine

"In this sweetly sentimental cookbook, Pinner shares 'plain old down-home confections' and her childhood memories of the lively women who created them.... The recipes and story snippets are punctuated with snapshots of family gatherings in small-town Michigan and Pinner's concoctions, making this a nice, nostalgic collection of desserts." --Publishers Weekly

"This book is a rare treasure. The recipes are all delicious and foolproof." --Maida Heatter, author of Maida Heatter's Great Book of Desserts

"Patty Pinner's sweet memories go hand-in-hand with her wonderful recipes to inspire us to recreate her sweets." --Flo Braker, author of The Simple Art of Perfect Baking and Sweet Miniatures

Praise for Patty Pinner's Sweety Pies: An Uncommon Collection of Womanish Observations, with Pie

"A beautifully written culinary memoir about memory, the bond between recipe givers, and the attitude of women in the kitchen. It celebrates the love and sweetness of family and friends cooking and eating together." --Dr. Vertamae Grosvenor, cultural correspondent, National Public Radio, author and culinary griot

"If you find sustenance in the narrative as well as the eating of pie, this is your book." --The Baltimore Sun

"Some cookbook authors struggle to come up with things to say about their recipes. Not Patty Pinner; her recipes are firmly rooted in delicious stories about the women who provided them. Sweety Pies tickled me so much that I called friends and enthusiastically read passages aloud. The womanish observations are every bit as good as the pies." --Sylvia Carter, Newsday

"Patty Pinner's new cookbook delivers dollop after dollop of womanly wisdom along with a slice of pie.... These snapshots of a bygone era make it difficult to decide what to do first: read about the women who influenced Pinner or get out the flour and shortening and bake a pie."--The Hartford Courant

"In this culinary memoir featuring over 50 home-baked pies, Pinner weaves personal stories with recipes for standards such as Apple and Mixed Berry, as well as less common but equally delicious offerings such as Lemon Chess Pie and an ice cream-based Caramel Tin Roof Pie." --Publishers Weekly

"I'm having a hard time making up my mind which is more delicious--Patty Pinner's glorious words or these heavenly pies!... The perfect discussion for book clubs--but don't talk with your mouth full!" --Jill Conner Browne, Sweet Potato Queens

"Sweety Pies is a beautifully written homage to all that sustains us. Generous, loving, funny, and knowing, this book is indeed 'an uncommon collection.' It is also a blessing and a delight." --Julia Reed, author, Queen of the Turtle Derby and Other Southern Phenomena

"Written with generous helpings of wit, wisdom, and sass, this wonderful cookbook captures the magic and poetry of women who share soulfulness and love through their kitchens." --Norma Jean & Carole Darden, authors of Spoonbread and Strawberry Wine
