Sautéed Summer Squash with Radishes

Posted by Hallee on Jun 17, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sides

This recipe came about because I went to make you Sautéed Summer Squash, only my yellow squash in my kitchen I had picked the day before disappeared (and since was found, in a small piece with dog teeth marks on it – quite curious). Not willing to let that quell me, but not wanting you to be stuck with just zucchini and onion in the recipe – I decided to utilize some of the radishes fresh out of my garden. The result was simply amazing. I will definitely be adding radishes to my squash sautés from now on.

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.

Homemade Potato Chips

Posted by Hallee on Apr 21, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sides, Snacks

My son Scott loves potato chips. Since potatoes are in the “dirty dozen”, I try very hard to just get organic potato chips. But, organic potato chips are SO EXPENSIVE. It doesn’t seem worthwhile to even buy that little tiny bag. Recently, Scott brought me a potato and said, “Can you make me some potato chips?” I love the fact that he deduced that potato chips come from potatoes, and that he was confident I could produce them. Which I did. They were amazing. Kaylee came home from softball practice and ate the leftovers, then asked if I would make them for her the next morning for her lunch. I will never purchase bagged potato chips again.

Savory Baked Beans

Posted by Hallee on Mar 14, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sides

These were so good. I think what I liked about them was the lack of green pepper – green pepper throws the taste of baked beans off for me. I think some beef bacon would have been good in them as well, but this recipe is entirely vegetarian. The flavors were wonderful. Because there are no meat or dairy products in it, this is a perfect dish for a Daniel Fast or for Lent.

Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

Posted by Hallee on Feb 14, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sides

This a simple, hands-off side dish. A light olive oil with the simple seasoning of salt and pepper is all you need.

Zucchini Ribbons with Parmesan Sauce

Posted by Hallee on Feb 14, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sides

I found this recipe while reading a book called The Reluctant Entertainer. As soon as I read it, I have been waiting for an opportunity to make it. I love the concept of making noodle strips out of zucchini. This was absolutely delicious. The perfect accompaniment to the steak with which we enjoyed them.

Pummelo Avocado Salsa

Posted by Hallee on Dec 7, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, Recipes, Salads, sauces & spreads, sides, Snacks, starters

I created this recipe after researching pummelos. I kept finding it paired with avocados in different things, so I put together a quick salsa. I was a bit worried about the cilantro, but the final product was very tasty.

Simple Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Posted by Hallee on Nov 19, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare, Recipes, sides

Scott calls these “salads” and will eat them raw if I let him. I love them – boiled, steamed, roasted – it doesn’t matter to me. I’ve tried different seasonings, spices, and methods, and it all comes back to just simple salt and pepper and a roasting in olive oil – that makes the best way to serve them for me.

Savory Cornbread Dressing

Posted by Hallee on Nov 19, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare, Recipes, sides

Until I made this recipe, I had never made any kind of stuffing or dressing before, other than Stove Top. Working at the soup kitchen, I had seen the head cook there make it a few times, so I consulted her on how to make it on a scaled-down version. I was really pleased with the results.

Fresh Cranberry Sauce

Posted by Hallee on Nov 19, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare, Recipes, Salads, sauces & spreads, sides

I do not enjoy eating turkey without cranberry sauce. It’s just part of that whole dinner to me. Once I tasted cranberry sauce made with fresh cranberries, I just can’t imagine going back to the canned kind. This recipe is wonderful – the orange in it cuts the tartness of the berries perfectly.
