A celebration was held recently in the home of Sam and Leila Lane to commemorate the fifth anniversary of Sweetness Follows. During these past years thousands of copies have been sold and the recipes have been enjoyed by cooks across the nation. The cookbook continues to inspire with its timeless testimony to the love of family and the strength of friendships.
This month marks the fifth year since the launch of Sweetness Follows. Since then thousands of copies have been sold with just a few remaining. Our thanks go out to all of the family members and friends who continue to support us.
