40% off coupon and a gift certificate, what should I get? It's going to depend on what they have in stock, of course, but some books on my wish list or just look interesting are (not in any particula

I agree, except that once in a while I feel like doing it. What I find chef's or restaurant cookbooks useful for is inspiration, new flavor combinations, new ingredients, that kind of thing. It woul

That's great news! Out of nowhere the other day, Eden Lipson crossed my mind. Now I know why.

Anyone have this book?  

It made a lot of the top ten 2020 blah blah blah cookbook lists. Edd is a winner of that show everyone seems to love - The Great British Baking Show, and which I must get around to watching at some point.

But the thing that really intrigues me, and which I wish ALL cookbook authors would do, is the measurements for all the recipes included are in metric, imperial, AND volume. How nice is that!

The funny thing about this book...even though I have dozens of tins of every imaginable size and shape, bundt pans, springform pans, tiny pans, giant pans...I don't have the one tin (or couldn't fine the one tin) the title refers to. Ah well - it's ordered and was under $20.

I think the format is more common in Europe. In Germany you would find whole sections on cooking sites for “blechkuchen”. I ended up buying one with a handled lid a few years ago because the format is perfect for the type of thing you take to school and sports events and I’m a total Mutti now.

Yes, exactly. And it's what I have too. Or had...until now.  I mean, the Nordic ware he recommends is like $20. Of course, once on the Nordic Ware site, I couldn't resist and added a few things, which got me free shipping and a 20% discount. I now have a 1/4 sheet pan with a lid, which came in surprisingly handy as I made focaccia in it, and with the lid, I didn't have to mess around with plastic wrap to let the dough proof!

OK, to state the completely obvious, you can make 2x anything you would make in an 8x8 brownie pan. 

I like to make Alice Medrich brownies for a crowd, any of the Smitten Kitchen snacking cakes, that jam cake from Leite's culinaria, etc. 

Specifically German? I love the really traditional ones. I haven't used the below recipes, but they are in English and look pretty good: 

 - Poppyseed streusel cake

- Zwetchgendatschi

- Bienenstich (this recipe is for an 8x8 version.) 

- Sour cherry streusel
