I got mine “Inside the Jewish Bakery”

Well I got my signed copy of “Inside the Jewish Bakery” by Stanley Ginsberg and Norman Berg.  It is a great book!  It has great recipes, great pictures (fun to see that some of the pictures came from some of the testers) and great history.

 

Once I had some time after browsing and spot reading some of the book I created the following as a spreadsheet.  I generally keep this just inside the book cover so that if I am looking for some ideas on what to bake it is always handy.  I’ve marked the recipes that I have made (as a tester), those that I would like to bake and those that I am a repeat offender on.  Note:  this means that the Onion Pockets are Highly Recommended!  Also, being a geek I like to keep some statistics at the bottom.

That's OCD in an incredibly admirable way! Sometimes I use Things (a to-do organizer iPad app) to schedule cooking in general --   as holiday season approaches, I'll be using it even more. Most of the time, I look and see what starter needs refreshing, and work from there.
