November Cookbook Club Pick: Half Baked Harvest Super Simple by Tieghan Gerard

by Becky LeJeune

Followers of Tieghan Gerard’s crazy popular Half Baked Harvest blog will be excited to see that she finally has a second cookbook out! If you haven’t heard of her, now is the time to introduce yourself to this fantastic Colorado cook’s amazing dishes. 

Half Baked Harvest Super Simple: More Than 125 Recipes for Instant, Overnight, Meal-Prepped, and Easy Comfort Foods is focused on, as the title states, super simple dishes. In these pages you’ll find easy and amazingly flavorful recipes to use throughout the year. Even better, Gerard has provided a handy set of icons indicating whether a recipe is 10 ingredients or less, 30 minutes or less, 1 pan, or, my favorite, is a recipe for your instant pot/multi cooker/slow cooker! Don’t have an instant pot or multi cooker? No problem! Gerard includes stovetop instructions for those dishes too!

Recipes range from breakfasts to pizza, vegetarian to meaty, and appetizers to desserts, with a variety sure to please everyone in your house. And, best of all, the recipes are perfect for home cooks of any level of experience!

Kick off a fall morning with Pumpkin Butter Creme Fraiche Pancakes with Whipped Maple Butter! Serve up some Cheesy Poblano and Bacon Quesadillas or Black Pepper Buffalo Cauliflower Bites for game time! And spend a night in with a hearty serving of Browned Sage-Butter Chicken Pot Pie followed by Five-Ingredient Hazelnut Brownies. Yum!

We love this cookbook and are certain that you will too. Add it to your must have list or buy a copy for your favorite home cook for the holidays!
