Our Daily Bread: Delicious Whole Grain Bread

Posted by Hallee on Feb 20, 2014 in Breads, Recipes

I used to make Honey Oatmeal Bread for our daily bread use. It is SO DELICIOUS and you honestly have never tasted toast as good as this bread makes toast. However, it doesn’t do well for most sandwiches — it’s a little too sweet and a little too crumbly. So, in researching writing The Walking Bread, I came across a new recipe that I tried out. I have to say – I’ve never had homemade whole wheat bread that is this moist and this wonderful.

I LOVE this recipe. I modified it from the original recipe – using a fresh ground mixture of hard red and hard white wheat, removing any call for white flour, and replacing brown sugar with raw honey. It made the recipe even better, in my opinion…

Using a Bread Machine to Mix & Knead Bread Dough

Posted by Hallee on Feb 13, 2014 in Hallee's Galley, Housekeeping, kitchen & cooking tips, Life

I’ve had this post on my “to write” list for a while now. I’ve just been so busy that I haven’t had a chance to write it. Two years ago, the motor burned out in my Kitchenaid mixer. Now, my mixer is an EXPENSIVE one. It’s this one. Getting it in the nickel instead of another color added nearly $100 to the price, and I think we paid almost $600 for it (though I notice today, in finding the link, that Kitchenaid has it on sale.)…

Menu Monday! 27 JAN 14

Posted by Hallee on Jan 27, 2014 in menus & menu planning

It has been an entire year since my last Menu Monday! Wow!

It is CRAZY how much easier life goes when I make a menu for the week. And, honestly, when I’ve not been putting it up on this blog, I’ve not been really creating one at home, either…

Emergency Yogurt Spoon (Functional Origami)

Posted by Hallee on Jan 26, 2014 in Food Art, Hallee's Galley, kitchen & cooking tips, Snacks

If you have yogurt with a foil lid but no spoon, you can make your own spoon, no problem. The only requirement I think I have is that the lid to your yogurt needs to be the sturdy foil type lid.

Brown Sugar & Walnut Skillet Cake

Posted by Hallee on Jan 23, 2014 in Desserts, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

When I decided to make this cake, it took less time to make the batter than it took to preheat the oven. You use a whisk to make it, not a mixer, which means you can whip it up in little time and the cleanup is very easy. It’s a delicious, dense cake – almost like a Blondie.

Candy Cane Star Wreath

Posted by Hallee on Dec 20, 2013 in Gift Ideas, Holiday fare, Homemaking with Hallee, Life

I love the way this wreath forms a star. All you need are 10 candy canes, 5 peppermint mints, some ribbon, and a hot glue gun.

Christmas Baking Planning

Posted by Hallee on Dec 3, 2013 in Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare

I have a confession to make: I barely baked last Christmas at all. I did gifts for Scott’s teacher, and that’s about it.
This year, my intention is to do my mammoth baking that I’ve enjoyed in the past. I want to make cookies and candies and breads and just have a blast doing it. But, to incorporate something like that into my schedule, it takes some planning and some time. With just three weeks until Christmas, and only two full weeks of school left, it’s time to get to planning!
I love giving my friends delicious homemade treats as a Christmas gift. I used to do it while I worked full time, and would spend and entire Saturday and most of a Sunday baking and cooking and cleaning and mixing. Over the years, I’ve learned how to space the work out so that it’s not so frantic and exhausting.

30 Days of Thankfulness Day 22

Posted by Hallee on Nov 22, 2013 in Hallee's Galley, Life

I am so thankful that I live in a place where I have access to a Whole Foods, a Trader Joes, a Good Foods Co-Op, and innumerable farmers markets. I have an Arab grocery store where I can purchase products made without pork and local meats raised in good environments, and I have friends who give me farm fresh eggs. I have access to local grass-fed beef and local grass-fed lambs. I also have access to the organic bulk grains and dried legumes that I purchase and store because they don’t go bad.
