Foreward Reviews - Hannah Hohman

"Sweet Revenge is a mischievous cookbook that is equal parts gratifying, tempting, and hilarious. . . .Instructions are clear and easily comprehensible, making use of friendly and amusing language and slang. Beating your anger out into a batter is an essential instruction in many of the recipes. The tone is that of a friend, full of exuberant energy and lots of baking knowledge, eager to help the reader transform their aggression into the perfect dessert. . . .Amid all of its fun and tastiness, Sweet Revenge is a book on a mission to help teenagers find a way to better express themselves when they are hurt—with dessert!" - Foreward Reviews

Christina Nguyen, Owner/Chef with Hola Arepa

"Heather is a fearless mad scientist of a pastry chef and one of the most creative, talented human beings I have the pleasure of knowing. Taste the genius in her irreverent combos of sweet & salty, farmer's market produce & gas station junk food. The best revenge is living well...and having an arsenal of mad baking skills. Heather's book will set you up for sweet success and inspire you to experiment and make your own delicious magic." - Christina Nguyen, Owner/Chef with Hola Arepa

Publishers Weekly

"STARRED REVIEW! Pastry chef and tattoo artist Kim serves up a fierce dessert book for readers seeking vengeance against exes or others who have wronged them. Pun-heavy recipe names include “I Couldn’t Carrot All Cake,” “You’ve Got a Latte Balls,” and “I Don’t Give a Fig About You,” and the adventurousness of the recipes (Cheeto ice cream sandwiches, anyone?) cleverly underscores the cookbook’s “out with the old” mentality. Photographs of the sticky, indulgent desserts are paired with heavy-metal-esque fonts and Kim’s irreverent commentary. . . .Readers in postbreakup mode or stewing over a double-crossing bestie should find much-needed laughs in Kim’s no-holds-barred tone and will likely repurpose these recipes for sweeter occasions." - Publishers Weekly

YA Books Central - Bethany Wicker

"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." - YA Books Central

Mpls. St. Paul Magazine - Stephanie March

"You really have to get local pastry chef Heather Kim’s new desserts book. . . .It has just the right slice of humor and edgy sass dripping all over great recipes for s’more brownies, mochi donuts with lemon nutmeg glaze, a chocolate pretzel tart with earl grey whipped cream, and such. Your exes don’t actually deserve treats, but your pals do." - Mpls. St. Paul Magazine

School Library Journal - Katie Llera, Bound Brook High School, NJ

"This baking cookbook is about taking anger and hurt and turning it into a delicious dessert. The layout features quirky doodles, bright neon lettering, and mouthwatering photos. The recipes range in difficulty but both novice and expert pastry chefs alike will be entertained. . . .As one might glean from its witty title, this book has a generous serving of tongue-in-cheek quips and sassy recipe names. This is book to be indulged in at a sleepover or when one’s heart feels a bit torn up. An easy addition to baking and cooking collections." - School Library Journal

Joy Summers, Editor, Eater Twin Cities & Food Editor, Minnesota Monthly Magazine

"Revenge is a dish best served piping hot from the oven with a sticky sweetness that lingers long after the love is gone. Heather Kim serves up an endlessly entertaining collection of recipes that are as fun to read as they are to make. Unexpected pairings like fudge and ramen noodles become a MFEO flavor, texture match. Kim knows even the sweetest things in life are best served with a healthy dose of salt, that's true in love and just desserts." - Joy Summers, Editor, Eater Twin Cities & Food Editor, Minnesota Monthly Magazine
