The successful book arrived on the market on September 2 and has already debuted in the Top 10 on Publishers Weekly’s Nonfiction List.

Kathy tweeted about her impressive debut, which includes recipes for Caramel Apple Ravioli, Strawberry Shortcake Puffs, among other delicious treats.

“Humbled & Grateful! Thank You to all that made this possible!” 

Prior to releasing “Indulge,” Kathy spoke exclusively to All About The Tea about the book:

“It was a labor of love, one that I am  proud of now that the pub date is almost here,” adding, “I put my heart and soul into my cookbook. My deserts are small but indulgent. I didn’t cut calories but I cut the size. Portion control is the key to living a healthy lifestyle.”

    Congratulations to Kathy who, in my opinion, is the nicest and most deserving cast member in the entire housewives franchise. She captured my heart with her Thanksgiving dessert table in the first season with NJ. I wish her great success with this book and with her next ones.

  • She Stinks!

    She seems like the most down to earth and ‘real’ of all the NJ housewives. Wishing KW continued success!

  • RealitySuxx

    So happy for her!

      hahaha! Those cookbook holders are really pretty and they look nice on the countertop. I have one…….however! they coverup the bottom part of the recipe & I usually have food crap all over my hands and I always have to take it out of the holder….my book pages have stains….BTW, don’t tell me to take it out before cooking, ’cause I’m not that organized.

    • Jennymckitty

      I saw that on Twitter. It is like dessert porn. I immediately wanted to start baking….if I weren’t so darn tired from grooming dogs all day. I will just sit here and eat a handful of candy corn flavored M&M’s….which would have tasted a lot better before I saw that pic. Go Kathy!!!!

      • Newchild

        Awww, what’s your favorite dog to groom? We have a Golden that luvs to go get groomed! We just ‘invested’ in a furmitor (?) brush for her & it works like magic. It was a freaking $65, but well worth the money.

        • Jennymckitty

          I love the Westie and Scottie cut. The nicest are King Charles….they will sometimes take a nap while you groom them. Goldens will let you do anything to them, they just want to lay down while your doing it…they take spa day seriously. Pugs are horrible for nails but I still love them. Poodles can be fun but OMG they take forever. I really like to do Shih Tzu’s the most.

          • Jet

            I have a Bernese Mountain Dog and groomers usually shut and lock the doors when they see us coming!

          • Jennymckitty

            One of my favorite dogs when I was a bather was a BMD. She was a real tomboy and would literally pout when I started the bath but at the end of her grooming she would act so prissy…I always pictured her going home and buying a new pair of high heels.

  • Fantastic job, Kathy! I wish all the success your journey has to offer.

  • italiano bambino

    Congrats kathy wish you all the success

  • Marsbars09

    Congrats to Kathy on the success of her cookbook! I know she succeeded with determination and hard work.

  • Newchild

    Yeah Kathy! You go girl – well deserved. Sad to say I won’t be purchasing your book though….I hate baking, and honestly, I kinda hate sweets. Come out with a savory cookbook and I’m in!!! Wishing you much success.

    • WestCoastFeed

      Then you’re in luck. Savories are next on her list.

      • Newchild

        Cool! I really do like Kathy. I would rather eat salt and vinegar chips than say……..cake. As a southerner, I don’t even like sweet tea & I was brought up drinking it. My tea needs to be unsweetened, thank you very much! lol

  • MorningYawn

    Yeah Kathy! Success is the best revenge (for a viscious, recipe stealing, bitchy cousin)! I would totally buy this if my fam weren’t going gluten free! If you try the recipes, please let me know and I can live vicariously through you!

    • WestCoastFeed

      She includes some gluten free recipes.

      • MorningYawn

        Ohhhhhhhhh! Good to know! Thx WCF!

  • italiano bambino

    Meanwhile in the mcFELONS the forehead got a inch lower after reading the news of kathy success

    • WestCoastFeed

      Hi, bambino. I know. Why can’t she just be happy for her cousin’s success. Kathy’s cookbook sales don’t impact Teresa’s cookie or gelato bar sales.

      • italiano bambino

        Her own mistakes impact her sales but she blames everyone

        • WestCoastFeed

          Ain’t that the truth!!

        • ✿♡❀♡❁ Tigerlily ❁♡❀♡✿

          But Bam it’s NEVER Tre’s fault. All this is happening TO her, not BECAUSE of her! Get it right. Here are the facts as Tre knows them… & we all know what a wealth of knowledge is contained in that tiny little threehead!
          We are all jealous of her & it could happen to anybody. Repeat that enough times & just like Tre you might actually start to believe those lies.

      • Norrth

        Is she still going after Kathy? If so, how tragic. She should be thinking about the life she COULD have had, without the schemes.

  • Norrth

    To think Bravo let her go and kept the other one. Someone should be fired for that decision!

  • toolate2care2000

    Can someone please tell me where all these reviews are? On Amazon? Barnes & Noble?

  • ✿♡❀♡❁ Tigerlily ❁♡❀♡✿

    Good for you Kathy. Much success to you!

  • Jet

    All of the desserts on the cover look amazing. I may have to check this one out.
