Five years into owning my business, I’ve got more headspace for creative solutions and problem solving. When a recipe goes awry in the kitchen, I feel good that thanks to some quick team brainstorming, we are making dang tasty lemonade out of the ole proverbial lemon. In our case, we are whipping up fabulous walnut chocolate chip cookie bars, red velvet whoopie pies and sticky buns covered in a decadent Chocovine cream cheese glaze.
Where there is an unsavory issue, there is a delicious opportunity.
cheers to tastefully and tastily overcoming your not so savory challenges

Luck-o-the-Irish! NY Daily News included our Black & Tan cupcake (Young’s Double Chocolate Stout Cake with Chocovine Cream Cheese Frosting) for their St. Patrick’s story. The Young’s Double Chocolate Stout and Chocovine pairings make it like finding the dessert & drink pot of gold .

Our red velvet Belgian waffles and Chocovine & Coffee got a most fabulous write-up by inspiring writer/photographer/blogger, SheenaLaShay. We were tickled she visited us and took some excellent food porn pics of our brunch!
I just had to share this quote from Sheena’s About page: “I live my life, unapologetically, wholeheartedly & full of love”. Brilliant!!

We’ve had a changing of the guard this week in our kitchen. Risa Magid who was our cherished head chef for the last year and a half is off on a new adventure. We are excited to see what comes next for her and will be cheering her on as she embraces an all new chapter. Our very own talented Shannon Noone is skillfully taking the reigns and leading us on a new chapter in the life of my small business.
Shannon is overseeing the onboarding of Kimberly Wetherell, who joined our team yesterday, and she is helping me interview candidates for one additional full-time pastry & savory chef. Once we’re fully staffed up, she will oversee the launch of our outrageously delicious all new dinner menu. Everyone on the SR team is excited. Recipe testing spearheaded by Risa this past month has us all chompin’ at the bit to get to eat it for real . Shannon is also working on some all new desserts to broaden our offerings.
Once dinner is launched, it will complete the important evolution of Sweet Revenge from dessert & wine bar to the nation’s only restaurant with a cupcake, beer & wine bar. I’m eager for SR to be all grown up in year five. Funnily, I feel like I’m just getting started. Change is good.

Changes are taking the pace I’m going through”
