Since then, Levy has gone on to even greater success: from winning the Food Network Challenge with a three-foot tall dinosaur-shaped cake to becoming the owner/operator of S. Levy Foods—all while being the mother of twins! S. Levy Foods specializes in bringing locally focused “real food” to airport dining, with locations across the country. This first paperback release of her much adored and newly updated Sweetness: Delicious Baked Treats for Every Occasion is appearing at the same time as the opening of a new Sarah’s Candies in O’Hare’s Terminal 2.
This is a great go-to resource for new home cooks, with plenty of delicious recipes for entertaining, gifts, social events, and even to impress that special someone, many of which are more suitable for more experienced cooks, too. Sarah Levy’s warmth, accessibility, and personality shine through on every page of her “girl’s guide to deliciousness.”

If I never use a recipe, this book has become my encyclopedia for baking. The author taught me so much about baking in general. How different flours effect things, what certain ingredients are, etc, etc, etc. Also, there are good pictures and instructions within the recipes. Thanks so much – this is a great resource.
