The Sweetest Therapy
The Sweetest Therapy
Scientific research has proved baking and cooking to be hobbies that promote healing and reduce stress.
The Sweetest Therapy takes a bold approach to the world of baking by showcasing it as a positive outlet for coping with grief, loss, and profound sadness. The narrative takes readers on a personal journey with Cassine as he candidly details how, after losing his mother to cancer in 2017, grief adversely impacted him by manifesting as emotional eating and negative self-talk. It also provides clinical advice from a therapist on how to combat negative self-talk by using uplifting affirmations to reframe it and to boost emotional resilience. Cassine's book leverages personal experience and professional insight to encourage those suffering from disheartening loss to use positive coping methods to heal, just like he did.
Additionally, The Sweetest Therapy features recipes for delectable treats such as Sour Cream Cheesecake, Crème Brûlée, Nanny's Banana Pudding, and many more. These have been meticulously food-styled by Jennifer Gill and are accompanied by beautiful snapshots by Dr. Devonte Williford. Nothing makes Cassine happier than baking and sharing desserts with others, and that zeal shines through in every recipe, all of which are easy to follow. If that isn't fantastic enough, brilliantly colorful pictures and fun facts about New Orleans' history and African American culture are sprinkled throughout this exciting, compact, easy-to-read, curated cookbook, all of which are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth, mind, and soul.
