Tieghan Gerard, the face and brains behind Half Baked Harvest, hails from idyllic Summit County. Each recipe on her blog was inspired by the people and places she adores most. Being from a large family, mealtime was chaotic. Gerard started cooking for her family but soon found it to be her passion. Now, three books later, Gerard’s recipes are enjoyed throughout Colorado and the world.
