Honestly, I cannot believe this day is actually here…I finally get to reveal the cover, and even a few details, about The Half Baked Harvest Cookbook!

The Half Baked Harvest Cookbook: Cover Reveal and a Giveaway! | @hbharvest

I do realize that the book is not even out…yet, but today’s the day I can actually show you guys, not only the COVER, but also a sneak peek inside, plus all the preorder details! I am SO excited it’s not even funny! I am also SO super nervous for everyone’s feedback. But I think I’m more excited than anything else.

As a lot of you know, this book has been almost two years in the making now. Yes, it takes a while to create a cookbook, and I had no idea how much work would be involved. But like I have mentioned, I could not be happier with how it is shaping up. The recipes are in…and have been tested over, and over, and over, by not only me but also my amazing recipe tester, Peter. The writing is complete and the photos have all been turned in. And while I don’t love each and every photo, the book would never be ready for that to happen. All in all, I’m pretty happy with how they turned out. So all that’s left now is to prep for the books release, which is September 12th, 2017! Just six short months away! 🙂

What I love most about this cookbook is that there is a little something for everyone. Everything from the super healthy to the super indulgent, to everyday easy dinners, to weekend pastas that are worth the extra time! Count on finding plenty of easy crockpot recipes along with recipes that take just thirty minutes start to finish! There are plenty of breakfast options, appetizers to please a crowd, pasta and pizza galore, and even some veggie heavy recipes. And yes, there’s an entire chapter on desserts. Some are a chocolate lovers dream, some are super fruity and a handful are even healthy…ish.

The Half Baked Harvest cookbook is truly a refection of what you see on the blog. The recipes in the cookbook are the best of the BEST, my most favorite creations. Recipes I have saved on my computer over the last four years for when the time came to put them into a cookbook. These recipes are what I am calling the HBH creme de la crumb recipes, they are my most treasured recipes. With each recipe there is also a photo, and for some recipes there even two. As you guys know, I LOVE photos and one of the most important things to me was that each recipe have at least one beautiful photo to accompany it!

OK, so let me give you a little sneak peek inside…

…the breakfast chapter is huge and full of both sweet and savory recipes.

…there is plenty of pasta…and pizza. Obviously.

…plenty of appetizers and snacks.

…a whole chapter on (mostly) meatless meals…or mostly meatless and even some vegan recipes. 🙂

…there is a photo and a story with every recipe, just like here on the blog.

…all of the recipes are brand new and never before seen!
