Italian Seasoning or Rub (Parsley, Sage, Rosemary & Thyme)

Posted by Hallee on Oct 4, 2013 in Gardening, Gift Ideas, Hallee's Galley, Italian, Preserving, Recipes, Spices & Rubs

When reading the first four ingredients to this mix, if an old song that goes, “Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme” doesn’t get stuck in your head, then you probably think I am REALLY old.

Hallee’s Marvelous Homemade Montreal Steak Seasoning Mix

Montreal steak seasoning is a true North American invention that combines the British love of beefsteaks with the French flair for seasoning. It’s excellent on red meats like steaks as well as on sides like baked potatoes.

Simple Greek “Peasant” Cornbread (Bobota)

Posted by Hallee on Aug 26, 2013 in Breads, Christian Faith, Hallee's Galley, Mediterranean, Recipes

In Greek, the word bobota can mean anything from cornmeal to any bread or polenta-type dish made with cornmeal. In Greek history, during times of hardship, cornmeal recipes were very popular, and bobota is considered by many to be a “peasant” dish. This recipe gets a delightful shot of flavor from fresh orange juice and produces a dense, crumbly cornbread.

Homemade Pasta – So Easy a Four-Year-Old Can Do It

Posted by Hallee on Mar 1, 2013 in Breads, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Italian, kitchen & cooking tips, Recipes

When I fired up my stand mixer to make this dough into fettuccine noodles to go with the Turkey Sausage Spaghetti Sauce I’d made, my 4-year-old, Jeb, came running into the room. He wanted to help. He’s a pro at the pasta machine (as all my kids are), so I just let him go at it and filmed it. This is unscripted, and impromptu, so I apologize for the unsteady camera and the lighting.

Nothing To It Tasty Turkey Breakfast Sausage

Posted by Hallee on Feb 28, 2013 in Breakfast, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

Even though we don’t eat pork, I love sausage. But, reading the label of the brand of turkey sausage that I used to buy, I realized that they used BHA and BHT in their sausage — two preservatives that I tend to want to avoid. So, I started looking at making my own sausage and discovered that it is surprisingly easy to make — all you need is a pound of ground turkey and some spices that are likely already on hand.

Quick & Easy Turkey Pot Pie

Posted by Hallee on May 3, 2012 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

This is the re-make of a recipe that called for processed food. Instead of cream of chicken soup and biscuit mix, I made everything from scratch. It was DELICIOUS. And, it was QUICK, and EASY. I had all of the elements put together in 10 minutes. Dinner was on the table 30 minutes later.

Fresh & Flavorful Pico de Gallo

Posted by Hallee on Apr 17, 2012 in Daniel Fast, diet & fasting, Mexican, Recipes, Salads, sides, Snacks

My daughter Kaylee LOVES fresh pico de gallo. She’ll sit with a huge bowl of it and a bag of organic tortilla chips and just inhale it. And because of the health benefits to the fresh salsa, I don’t discourage it. With fresh tomatoes, fresh peppers, and fresh onion, the vitamins and minerals can’t be beat. In running the nutritional analysis of the recipe, this is what I discovered. Fresh Pico de Gallo is has no cholesterol, is low in sodium, very high in dietary fiber, high in manganese, high in magnesium, high in niacin, high in phosphorus, very high in potassium, high in thiamin, very high in vitamin A, very high in vitamin B6, and very high in vitamin C.

It’s also REALLY easy. I make it all summer long straight out of my garden.

Kay’s “Company’s Coming” Layered Potato Casserole

Posted by Hallee on Mar 22, 2012 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

I remember my mom making this whenever we had company for dinner. This is the perfect “company’s coming” type of dish. It has your meat, starch, and vegetables all rolled into one casserole dish. It’s hearty, delicious, and different from the standard lasagna or baked chicken that are easy fall backs for entertaining. You can prepare it, put it in the oven, and get your kitchen cleaned up in time for company to arrive. Serve it with a tossed salad and a fresh baked loaf of French Bread, and you have the perfect meal.

Roasting a Whole Chicken

Posted by Hallee on Feb 24, 2012 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, kitchen & cooking tips, Recipes

These conversations all happened within a week or so of each other. They intrigued me only because roasting a whole chicken is my “I don’t want to put effort into dinner so I’m going to roast a whole chicken” fallback.

Italian Ground Beef Skillet

Posted by Hallee on Nov 18, 2011 in entrees, Hallee's Galley, Italian, Recipes

This is a quick pasta sauce that every member of our family will love. The kale is a wonderful source of vitamins A, C, and K, as well as omega 3 and omega 6. You can use any kind of pasta you want when making this dish. It takes very little time to make, and using grass-fed beef and organic vegetables it’s still barely $3 per person.
