Kentucky Sweets: Bourbon Balls, Spoonbread & Mile High Pie by Sarah C. Baird

Kentuckians from frontiersmen to modern-day pastry chefs have put their marks on the state's baking history. Residents of the commonwealth have plenty of rich recipes and time-honored traditions, like pulling parties, where folks would gather to make taffy. Stack cakes originated from Appalachian weddings, where guests would each offer a layer of cake to the bride and groom, who then added the jam to hold the creation together. The decadent Modjeska confection gets its name from a Victorian-era candy maker's crush on a popular Polish actress. Join author Sarah Baird on a whirlwind trip--complete with recipes--that examines the delectable history of unique Kentucky treats from pawpaws to chocolate gravy..

It's a cutesy book, but cutesy in a way that a 3rd-grader's science project is cute. Your mind isn't going to be blown, but you feel a little proud of them for trying. The author is very full of personality, but it's a shrill and undesirable personality that shines through the stories. The voice just became annoying to me - like a sorority girl in a Public Speaking 101 class. Now, the recipes were really great. But I found most of them online for free. I think this wasn't intended to be serious - I can't tell. It seems like something the writer wanted to just add to her resume. Anyone want my copy?
