Delicious Recipes and Loved the Theme

SWEET REVENGE is sweet and deliciously vengeful that I wanted to gobble up all of the recipes. It's full of passive-aggressive desserts for your exes and enemies that look yummy. Instead of giving the desserts away, I prefer to keep them for myself.

SWEET REVENGE was created to take out the pain of an ex-boyfriend or the betrayal of a friend and turn it into a scrumptious dessert that you can stuff your face with. Cooking is a healthy way to handle stress, better than taking the fight online.

I loved the conversions in the front and that the recipes had a difficulty level. I enjoyed the overall theme of the book and that the recipes were cleverly named for it. For example, "I'm Not Your Buttercup" and "You're as Nutty as a Fruitcake". I also loved that the recipes also had little notes of advice.


Final Verdict: I loved the concept of this cookbook and that it's a good way to take out anger. Plus, you also get something delicious from it. I made the "Stop Texting Me You Crepe" and it was so yummy. I would recommend this to all teens because they will all face these problems at one point. What's better than desserts after a hard time? I just would keep the desserts for myself and not give them to that annoying ex.

Deliciously fun!

This cookbook hits the perfect balance of being as entertaining to read as it is delicious to cook out of! With a snarky bent toward "kill 'em with kindness," it's chock full of decadent recipes that will either make your ex rue the day your relationship ended or allow you to eat your feelings in solitary deliciousness. I tested the "You're Such a Flake Butterfinger Bars," and the helpful/humorous recipe notes allowed me to successfully make a treat that required both scalding cream and caramelizing sugar, neither of which I'd ever done. After all, who could mistake "until it smokes and froths like a rabid dog" as the finishing point for caramelization? With a range of recipe difficulties, bold design elements, striking photography, and hilarious additions like dating profiles for different types of sugars/nuts/flours, "Sweet Revenge" will delight both seasoned bakers and casual cooks.

Thanks to BookishFirst for sending an advance copy in exchange for an honest review.
