Former Post-Dispatch reporter and food scribe Ellen Sweets is setting the cookbook world on fire with her cooking memoir,”Stirring It Up With Molly Ivins.”  Sweets’ roots are in St. Louis and her family once published the St. Louis American, but food writing took her to Texas where she became a friend of the raucously liberal syndicated columnist, who had a particularly pointed pen for the Republican puffery.  Sweets wrote the memoir with recipes after Molly’s death four years ago.  The tome is getting high praise from reviewers and is #87 among cookbooks in the rating.  She’s in town for a book signing at Left Bank Books at 7 p.m., Dec. 13.  She’s been on the signing circuit all over Texas, New Orleans and the Beltway.


  • Lanie (Elaine Lacey) Fleischer says:

    Hello and congratulations from Alaska! We’re so excited for you re your book and Molly’s recipes – can’t wait for our copy to get here – perhaps you can sign it first for us?

    I hope you remember us – consider this an open invitation for you to come see us and Alaska.

    All the best,

    Hugh and Lanie Fleischer
