Who knew that a perfectly baked sticky bun would work its charms more effectively than strategically applied perfume or a black lace teddy? This enticing little book offers up appetizers, salads, main dishes, and desserts all designed to work their magic.

Lovers everywhere will flock to Hot, Sweet, and Sticky to learn cooking skills to make things sizzle in more than just the kitchen.
