Tieghan Gerard's favorite Thanksgiving recipes

For this year's Thanksgiving menu, Summit County blogger and cookbook author Tieghan Gerard recommended a robust menu.

Cocktails: A spicy pomegranate ginger paloma that's "really simple, not overly sweet and has a really pretty red hue, which is kind of festive," or a vanilla chai old-fashioned for a "warmer and cozier" sipper.

What's next: On Feb. 22, Gerard will release her third cookbook, "Half Baked Every Day: recipes for balanced, flexible, feel-good meals."

  • She tells Axios she hopes to have a book tour — though the pandemic is still keeping most scheduling details up in the air. But one thing is for certain: this new book reflects a more "polished" version of herself.
  • "It's still so much of the recipes that you know and love … but just a little bit more of a grown-up version," she says.

The bottom line: "I don't want to ever lose what people come for and what they know and love," Gerard says.
