New York, NY: Harper Wave (October 25, 2022)

New in Hardback.

From the creator of the popular Instagram account @thesweetfeminist comes a playful yet soulful guide to baking your way through your emotions.

Becca Rea-Tucker has been “saying it with sugar” since 2018 on her Instagram account @thesweetfeminist. From pro-abortion pies to prison abolitionist sugar cookies, Becca’s never shied away from adorning her baked goods with her opinions, including her belief that all feelings are valid and deserve to be fully experienced. As she knows, while baking can’t replace therapy, working with your hands can be incredibly therapeutic.

In Baking by Feel, she offers readers a unique guide to identifying and processing their emotions—in the kitchen. Organized by five emotional states—happy, sad, mad, anxious, and hopeful—the book includes 65 beautifully photographed recipes, each paired with an emotion. Feeling awkward? Try some Kitchen Sink Cookies (they’re made up of a little bit of everything, but somehow turn out great!); Having an optimistic moment? Enjoy something new like a Cardamom Caramel Poke Cake. Struggling with a moody moment? Thick & Chewy Maple Cookies, with their zing of sweet heat (secret ingredient is cayenne) are the perfect salve. And when you’re feeling lost and craving something familiar, there’s Becca’s Instagram-famous Brownies.

With stunning photography and deeply felt vignettes to accompany each emotion, this one-of-a-kind self-care cookbook will satisfy your sweet tooth and nourish your soul.

Becca Rea-Tucker’s first foray into baking came in the form of licking the cookie dough off the beaters while watching her grandma make chocolate chip cookies. She is a baker, recipe writer, feelings haver, and strong-willed voice behind the oft-shared Instagram account @thesweetfeminist. She lives in Austin, Texas, with her husband.
