Dear Hallee: Baking with Small Children

Posted by Hallee on Dec 20, 2011 in Parenting, Raising boys, Raising girls

It’s amazing to me how much time you spend cooking/baking – seriously – do you have hired help? You have young kids – who I’m assuming make messes and require your attention – any tips? ~Miranda

Essentials: Bread Baking

Posted by Hallee on Nov 2, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, kitchen & cooking tips

Notice I didn’t title this “Bread Making”. The components you need to make bread are different for every recipe. Some require heating ingredients, some just require mixing and kneading. For this post, I am only going to talk about pans.

Tip: The Importance of Measuring

Posted by Hallee on Oct 19, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, kitchen & cooking tips

Monday, as I was baking for the week and making both kinds of bread, I pulled out my worn recipes and followed them, carefully, step-by-step. As I did this, I was reminded of something that an ex-inlaw once said to me. She said that I wasn’t a real cook because I measured. She said that real cooks don’t have to measure.

Baking on a Massive Scale

Posted by Hallee on Jun 16, 2010 in Hallee's Galley

A local church is facilitating a bake sale for our family’s youth summer camp for disadvantaged youths. The bake sale commences at 8AM on Saturday morning at our local Wal-Mart (and Wal-Mart will match whatever we make in the bake sale!)

It has been REALLY hot out there lately, so we’ve been trying to plan what to bake that will handle the heat. For instance, I think chocolate chip (or cinnamon chip) cookies would become big gooey messes, and icing would likely slide off of any cakes.

Delectable Blondies

Posted by Hallee on Jan 7, 2010 in Desserts, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

My husband does not like chocolate, so whenever I make Brownies, I always make him a pan of Blondies. Instead of relying on chocolate for their flavor, they’re all about the brown sugar, giving them a wonderful flavor of molasses, warm and inviting.

Tip: Baking Soda

Posted by Hallee on Nov 23, 2009 in Hallee's Galley, kitchen & cooking tips

Baking soda has SO MANY uses in the kitchen, from cutting down the gas in a pot of beans to helping biscuits rise just so. One of the things that baking soda does really well is absorb odors.

Harvest Bread: a recipe for children

Posted by Hallee on Oct 12, 2009 in Breads, Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare, Parenting, Recipes

I was looking around online the other day to find something uniquely Canadian to post about Thanksgiving. Since Canadian Thanksgiving is actually a celebration of harvest and has nothing to do with pilgrims and the new world, what I found referenced over and over again was Harvest Bread.
