Wonderful Whole Wheat Sopapillas

Posted by Hallee on May 5, 2010 in Breads, Breakfast, Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare, Recipes

I have a good friend who asked me to make whole wheat sopapillas, so I’ve been researching recipes. I finally came up with one that will please all of us “real food” minded mamas. Sopapilla means “little pillow” and can be used in a savory dish much like a tortilla or a pita bread. For this dish, I used them as a breakfast bread and drizzled them with honey. They were beyond amazing. A wonderful breakfast to kick of a Cinco de Mayo celebration.

Scrumptious Cinnamon Honey Scones with Raisins

Posted by Hallee on Apr 28, 2010 in Breads, Breakfast, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

I saw this recipe on GNOWFGLINS’ blog. This is a soaked wheat recipe – you soak the wheat overnight in an acid (in this case, apple cider vinegar) so that the phytic acid in the grain is broken down and your body is able to absorb all of the nutrients in the grain. I made this to take to Sunday School for breakfast. I worried that they would be heavy, dense, but they were amazing. They were so light, and melt-in-your-mouth. The original recipe is called “biscuits” but, they seemed more like a scone than a biscuit. They were SO good. My pictures are showing me making a double-batch to accommodate the Sunday School class.

Family Favorite French Toast

Posted by Hallee on Mar 26, 2010 in Breads, Breakfast, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

French toast is one of my favorite breakfasts. I love having French Bread in my weekly menu, because that allows me to put French toast somewhere in my breakfast menu. I also love that this is another recipe that my children can help me prepare.

Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas

Posted by Hallee on Mar 11, 2010 in Breads, Hallee's Galley, Mexican, Recipes

I don’t know why I’ve always been intimidated to make flour tortillas. I make corn tortillas all the time. But, maybe I thought that getting the right texture would be hard. This was my first attempt at flour tortillas, and they were perfect. They felt right, they handled right, and they tasted wonderful. I’m so pleased.

Whole Wheat Bread Bowls

Posted by Hallee on Feb 23, 2010 in Breads, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

A friend of mine posted a Facebook status about homemade potato soup that she put in Panera bread bowls, and I made the comment that they wouldn’t be hard to make. A few days later, she flagged me on the Hallee the Homemaker fanpage and asked if I’d made bread bowls yet. So, here they are.

Greek Lenten Tomato Fritters (Domatokeftethes)

Tomato fritters are a delightful appetizer or side dish, and a specialty of Santorini, a Greek island known for its tomatoes. The combination of herbs can be adjusted to include dill, parsley, basil, mint, or oregano, depending on taste preference. The recipe calls for self-rising flour. This meatless, eggless, dairyless dish is perfect for Lent or a Daniel Fast. The fresh vegetables in it also make a wonderful summer dish to prepare with the bounty out of a vegetable garden (and, come on – who isn’t desperately searching for zucchini recipes right around mid-August?)

Greek Lenten Fritters (Tiganites)

Similar to small pancakes, these light, crispy medallion-sized treats are a delight served with honey or petimezi… or with syrup, preserves, or a creative topping of your own design. They can be eaten as a sweet snack, with breakfast, or as a brunch dish. Favorites during The Great Lent, these contain no eggs or dairy products. If served with honey, they are perfect for a Daniel Fast as well.

Christmas Churros (Mexican Doughnut Strips)

Posted by Hallee on Dec 22, 2009 in Breads, Breakfast, Desserts, Hallee's Galley, Mexican, Recipes

This is my family’s traditional breakfast for Christmas morning. It’s a very light dough, crispy, with a delicate sweet flavor brought about by sprinkling it with sugar and cinnamon. I only make them for Christmas so that we have something different and new to look forward to every year.
