Herb-Roasted Potato Wedges

Posted by Hallee on Jun 25, 2011 in Christian Faith, Daniel Fast, diet & fasting, Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sides, Snacks

This recipe is so easy to make, and is such a beautiful side dish to almost any sandwich. We love this kind of side for our game night dinners when we tend to go with Turkey Burgers or Root Beer Barbecued Beef Sandwiches.

Fun & Easy Snow Cone Syrup

Posted by Hallee on May 14, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sauces & spreads, Snacks

Many years ago, Kaylee had an end-of-the-school-year-summer’s-coming party. Among other things, we served snow cones. I bought a snow cone maker at a kitchen store for less than $20, and bought a pack of four different flavored snow cone syrups. Three years ago, we moved from Florida to Kentucky, but the box that contained the snow cone maker stayed unpacked until this winter. I dusted it off, put it on the shelf, and waited for warmer weather. I went to the store the other day to buy new syrup for it, and reading the labels, discovered that there wasn’t a single brand whose ingredients didn’t start with “high fructose corn syrup.” This is on our “absolutely avoid” list – so I came home and started thinking. The ingredients were all basically:high fructose corn syrup, water, flavor, color, citric acid. What could I use that would have a pretty strong flavor to mix with the sugar to make a syrup for snow cones? Then I looked at a Kool-Aid packet — the ingredients are basically: flavor, color, and citric acid. So, there, you go — flavored snow cone syrup sans high fructose corn syrup. You’re free to make any flavor you want – and it will be in a variety of fun colors for kids.

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.

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.
