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.

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.

Tex-Mex Ground Beef Skillet

Posted by Hallee on Nov 17, 2011 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Mexican, Recipes

Chili-Mac is one of my kids’ favorite dinners. I love how this is served over cornbread instead of sloppy-joe style over hamburger buns. This is a very-quick, easy to make meal – especially if you’re using leftover cornbread. I used grass-fed beef, and even with organic vegetables it’s still less than $4 per serving.

Cajun Ground Beef Skillet

Posted by Hallee on Nov 15, 2011 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

This is a wonderful recipe with a hint of kick. If you have pre-prepared rice, it’s a quick fix. But remember – the rice will take 45 minutes to cook so try to plan ahead a little bit.

Winter Squash Stuffed with Wild Rice, Toasted Pecans & Dried Cherries

I love finding a recipe that will be my new go-to recipe for entertaining. We had company for dinner, and since we’re observing a Daniel Fast, this was our main course using acorn squash. The next evening, we served a soup and had this as a side using pumpkins. The rice is amazing alone, but pared with the winter squash, it is remarkable. This would be beautiful gracing any holiday table.

Cajun Style Beef Wrap

Posted by Hallee on Sep 1, 2011 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Recipes, Snacks

I love this wrap, because using steak as a meat in it gives lunch a little facelift from the normal turkey or tuna. This is a great source of protein, which helps Kaylee get through her day since she eats lunch at 10:30 in the morning. It tastes fantastic, and is packed full of all sorts of good vitamins and minerals.

Daring ‘Omega-3′ Salmon Tacos

Posted by Hallee on Aug 31, 2011 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Mexican, Recipes

I love fish tacos. I discovered them at the Cheesecake Factory in Boston and haven’t met one I didn’t like yet.

I also love salmon. My parents are from Oregon, and my grandfather loved salmon fishing. I grew up eating salmon fresh off of the grill all summer long.

Green & Gold Casserole

Posted by Hallee on Jul 15, 2011 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sides

I graduated from Spencer High School, home of the mighty Greenwave. Don’t ask me what that means – in all of my years there, I was never able to figure that out. Our mascot was an owl. BUT, our colors were green & gold. That was always cool, because my family is from Springfield, Oregon, a small town that is a sister-city to Eugene Oregon, home of the Oregon Ducks – whose colors are also green & gold. Which is what makes this casserole so much fun. I could take it to a class reunion or a football party and be a winner either way.

Southern Cheese Grits

Posted by Hallee on Jun 2, 2011 in American Quisine, Breakfast, Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sides

Grits, for those of you who haven’t spent a good portion of your life below the Mason-Dixon line, is a cornmeal made from hominy. Hominy is hulled corn kernels that have been stripped of their bran and germ. What the American Indians gave the Pilgrims was likely hominy. “Lye hominy” is made when the kernels of corn are soaked in a light lye solution. You can get white grits (made from white corn) or yellow grits (made from yellow corn). The difference between grits and polenta, other than regions of America, is that polenta is made from corn that retains the germ of the grain.
