For anyone who is always trying to find an excuse to bake, Jack Hazan, therapist, has validated our wishes by using baking mouthwatering treats as therapy. Of course, to be honest, most of us could also use therapy, so Mind Over Batter: 75 Recipes for Baking as Therapy is a perfect excuse to add a new cookbook to our personal collection.

Hazen presents 75 incredibly luscious-looking recipes for baked goods – mostly sweet, but some savory – that anyone who needs therapy or not will love. Many of the recipes have Jewish leanings, and some are unique and not recipes those of us who aren’t Jewish have ever heard of. The recipes are written in the traditional manner, so they are easy to follow. The ingredients are easy-to-find at any grocery store, so readers and bakers won’t need to go anywhere special to stock up their pantry in order to make these incredible baked goods.

Included are also beautiful photographs of some of the dishes; unfortunately all of the recipes aren’t pictured, which is the one drawback about this cookbook. Because of all the good things, that isn’t a game changer. The author has also included comments at the beginning of each recipe to help with the therapy of baking.

All told, this is an excellent cookbook; every time readers like me, peruse it, the queue will get longer and longer. You simply can’t go wrong adding this book to your cookbook collection.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
