“Like a warm hug from Grandma, the recipes in Sweetness will bring comfort and joy, making it the perfect addition to any baker’s bookshelf” (Booklist).
Celebrate the sweet spirit and taste of Southern hospitality with Christy Jordan, the voice of Southern cooking for a new generation. Sweetness is a memory made in our grandmother’s kitchen. Sweetness is nights on the porch, listening to the old stories. Sweetness is welcoming guests with an open heart. And food: sustaining those same guests with Peach Buttermilk Pie. Greeting the kids and their friends after school with Chocolate Chip Dream Bars. Sitting in the shade with neighbors and cooling down with Blushing Apple Juleps. (Pour some for the little ones, too—there’s no alcohol.) Or ending dinner on the high note of a Chocolate Chess Pie, because you always need a little something sweet to finish it off, whether a meal or a day.
In Sweetness, Christy Jordan shares 197 recipes for sweet things to eat and drink—recipes that are deeply delicious, rich with tradition, often reaching through generations, and designed with today’s hectic schedules in mind. Because life is just better when you add a little sweetness.

A boozy book for boaters, The Boat Drinks Book serves up an expert look at the drinking culture in key sailing spots around the world. The book is split into five regions: Atlantic, Med, Baltic, Pacific, and Caribbean, and author Fiona Sims encourages us to explore each region and discover what locals like to drink, how it's made, where to go to drink it, and what is best to eat with it. In doing so she uncovers distilleries, breweries and wineries all within a short taxi ride of the harbour and shows us how to make the most of traditional markets.
As well as giving us the insider knowledge on fabulous locations worldwide, The Boat Drinks Book gets in on the making too. Cocktail and drink recipes inspire us to whip up something delicious – using local liqueurs, wines, spirits and produce – to sip on deck at the end of a long day's cruising or exploring. There's even a scattering of recipes for ultimate boat nibbles, inspired by each region, from tapenade to salsa to stuffed piquillo peppers.
So whether you're a seasoned sailor or an armchair aperitif enthusiast, grab a copy of The Boat Drinks Book and let expert food and wine writer Fiona Sims quench your thirst. Your mission: to discover and enjoy.
