The Physician Moms Cook group chose this book as our latest to cook through from start to finish. Our world changed so much from when we started this challenge. We adapted, dug into our pantries, bookmarked recipes we want to go back to once ingredients are available but between us we cooked 80% of the recipes. Less than in past challenges because we are living in the world of corona.
Thanks @halfbakedharvest for allowing 4,906 front line physicians to do what we love- feed our families.

I follow Tieghan Gerard on Instagram and was so excited she came out with this cookbook. She’s an awesome food photographer. I love cookbooks with beautiful pictures because it helps me to visualize what the dish should look like - and this is one of them! It also has simple, approachable and delicious recipes for every meal. I can’t wait to try some of these out! This would also make a great gift for the home cook.

Ok. I know a cookbook is not literature. But I have made eight dishes out of this book and only one I probably will not make again. Two have already joined the rotation of family meals and my family is picky. So far this book has proven to be used as much as my Ina Garten books, and if you know me, you know I cook her recipes all the time. Just sayin'. ...more

Tieghan is a great photographer and really knows how to make every single recipe look delicious. Even the recipes that have strange ingredients or combinations sound great the way she describes them. But when it comes to taste, her recipes are very white. I don't mean any offense, but I'm used to a decent amount of flavor and seasoning in every meal. And this is not it.

Most of her recipes are very bland, heavy on dairy and bacon, unhealthy, and use ingredients that are expensive or difficult to

This cookbook is fantastic! A large variety of dishes, including vegetarian (YAY!), but the best sections are the breakfast and dessert ones. I love that there are little codes above the recipes to let you know if it is one pan, or pantry staples, or less than 10 ingredients. I also really love all of Tieghan's little stories and tidbits. These definitely all seem like super-simple recipes and I can't wait to start going through what the pages I have marked with post-its (soooo many post-its!)!

Half Baked Harvest is my all time favorite food blog for recipes packed with flavor bombs that you'll crave again and again. I bought her first cookbook, but only made a few things from it because most of the recipes were fairly intimidating. Her creativity in the kitchen continues to amaze me, but most recipes are definitely a time and ingredient commitment. I was so happy to go through this newest cookbook and bookmark almost every single recipe of something delicious I can definitely see myse ...more

Thank goodness for this cookbook! I brought it home from the library where I work when we shut down for the COVID19 outbreak. Ive been cooking from it almost every day, and will buy the Kindle version. Cooking and eating these delicious, beautiful, easy recipes has definitely kept me sane and much happier.

This is an excellent weeknight cookbook. Everything I've tried so far has been great and super easy. I love the bread/pizza dough, buffalo cauliflower bites, chicken tikka masala, French onion soup, and roasted tomato soup. Everything basically tastes like it came from Panera, which is honestly exactly what I want. We do a lot of time-consuming cooking, but we needed some quick and solid weeknight options where we can still manage to make everything from scratch. ...more

I’ve now had a chance to make multiple recipes, and my family highly recommends this cookbook! While I love almost all of Tieghan’s recipes, this book focuses on the fast, easy to prepare on a weeknight ones that work well for me!!

Have enjoyed her since she started blogging, love her photography, so happy she has made a career for herself with her talents. I always use the library, when I want to go the extra mile I purchase a hardcopy to support the authors, ok, so I can eat well too!

Lots of recipes to flag in this one and really love easy prep options (like the Instant Pot). Favorites so far are the tortilla soup and the Cuban sheet pan steak.

Hands down a new favorite cookbook that my family will work their way through. We’ve already tried five of the recipes and my 15 year old son has already bookmarked many more for us to make!

The collection of recipes go from breakfast to dessert. I love how there is a picture to go with each recipe. Not to mention the photography is amazing and will have you drooling before you even get to make the scrumptious recipe.

Every recipe I’ve made in this cookbook has impressed me with how easy it is an

I’m a big fan of the pictures and some of the simple recipes (Dad’s Cheesy Eggs for one), but I was disappointed the number I times I got excited about a recipe, only to be let down by the ingredient list. For example, Creamy Chicken Gnocchi Soup sounds like we're going to learn to make gnocchi, but not so fast, the ingredient list has ”1 (16-ounce) box mini potato gnocchi.” Or how about the Chicken Tortilla Soup that instead of building up a strong broth with spices and aromatics, instead inclu ...more

I came across this cookbook on the new releases shelf at my library. I like Half-Baked Harvest, so I decided to give it a try.

I love to cook, so I made a list of recipes to make. This list was long, because they all sounded good. I wanted to be sure I tried at least 3 before I wrote a review of the cookbook.

The recipes I tried were great, particularly ones for meals. Pad See Ew was incredibly quick and simple, as described - absolutely would make again. Same with Basil Beef. All of the dinners I

Over 75% of food I cook comes from or is inspired by a Half Baked Harvest recipe. I was so excited to get this cookbook and it definitely exceeds expectations! Tieghan has a wonderful writing style, she’s friendly and funny and you feel like you’re reading recipe notes from a close friend. The recipes in this book are easy to follow, incredibly inspiring, and accompanied by the most beautiful photos. I want to make pretty much everything, but I started with the instant chicken gumbo in my new In ...more

Apparently I rated her last cookbook before owning it or trying very many of the recipes. It's probably not very fair to rate a cookbook a full 5 stars before trying *any* of them, but I expect this will be a 5 star book as well. I've tried 80% or more (so far) of the last book's recipes, and enjoyed or loved all but maybe 1?

As this book is supposedly simpler and less time consuming, I look forward to trying many of these as well. Most of the recipes don't look that simple ingredient wise, but u

I seem to have picked up a habit of buying cookbooks to use them and then end up reading them for pleasure. I grabbed this volume from a messy stack of cookbooks placed on top of an impulse-buy shelf in Marshall's as I waited to check out (of course, I'm going to look at the books). I was attracted to the beautiful photos and clear directions for all of the recipes. When I got home, I started to actually read Tieghan Gerard's entries. Not only is she a brilliant cook, her words are entertaining ...more

I liked this a lot better than her first book. The recipes here are great for busy people, and come together quickly. There is at least one photo per recipe, and just enough backstory for the book to be interesting. There are a lot of sheet pan, crockpot and slow cooker adaptations here, which is what I like to see! The best chapters for me were meat and chicken - there was a pretty wide variety of dishes and some new takes on old favorites. The schnitzel recipe is great! I found the fish chapte ...more

In Half Baked Harvest Super Simple Tieghan Gerard gives us even more delicious sounding recipes to drool over. In this cookbook she focuses on easier/more simple recipes with either few ingredients or that you can just throw in a crockpot and forget about until dinner. I really liked that in several recipes she gives several ways to make something - crockpot, instapot/pressure cooker, or stove top. That way depending on how much time you have or what kitchen tools you have you can make the recip ...more
