In You Be Sweet (Thomas Nelson, Inc., 2012), a compilation of stories and sweet treats, Patsy Caldwell and Amy Lyles Wilson peek in on those occasions special enough to demand a dessert 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! The following excerpt comes from chapter 10, “Mary Beth Has a Bridal Shower.” 

You can purchase this book from the GRIT store: You Be Sweet.
