Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Revenge is Sweet Title: Sweet Revenge: Passive-Aggressive Desserts for Your Exes & Enemies Author: Heather Kim Publisher: Capstone / Switch Press Published: 1-1-2018 Pages: 224 Genre: Cooking Food and Wine Sub-Genre: Humor, Cookbooks, Desserts ISBN: 9781630790899 Reviewed For NetGalley and Capstone Reviewer: DelAnne Rating: 4.75 Stars A little arsenic in Anise cookies or maybe a little blowfish in their sushi., Thoughts that often flitter through ones mind when we find a partner that cheated on you or you were swindled in a business deal. Revenge is sweet! This is proven in "Sweet Revenge", but with a twist. Instead of the demise of the one who did you wrong they can live with the regret that they are no longer a part of your life and will have to live without these delectable tidbits. Heather Kim shows you that even the essential tools needed for the prep of these sweets could be easily used in a murder mystery, Meat Mallet, Butcher Knife, Rolling Pin, Plastic Wrap, Blow Torch, and even a cast iron skillet. The titles will bring a smile to your face and have laughter bubbling up more than once. Take the Kiss My Molasses Gingersnaps with Lemon Curd or You've Got A Latta Balls. Even better have an admirer you can't shake then try the Stop Texting me you Crepes, Donut Call Me Again, or Suck it up and Grow a Pear Cheesecake. Then there is always the I Wish You Were Bread, Go Fudge Yourself or the Please Turnover and Die Soon. If the titles don't put you at ease then flip through the pages and look closely at the pages of the title pages. You'll be giggling soon enough. The recipes are well written and easy enough to follow. The nearly perfect cookbook for someone wanting to prepare a sweet dish to enjoy. Revenge truly is a dish served warm as Heather Kim claims. My rating of "Sweet Revenge: Passive-Aggressive Desserts for Your Exes & Enemies" is 4.75 out of 5 stars.
