Our Daily Bread: Delicious Whole Grain Bread

Posted by Hallee on Feb 20, 2014 in Breads, Recipes

I used to make Honey Oatmeal Bread for our daily bread use. It is SO DELICIOUS and you honestly have never tasted toast as good as this bread makes toast. However, it doesn’t do well for most sandwiches — it’s a little too sweet and a little too crumbly. So, in researching writing The Walking Bread, I came across a new recipe that I tried out. I have to say – I’ve never had homemade whole wheat bread that is this moist and this wonderful.

I LOVE this recipe. I modified it from the original recipe – using a fresh ground mixture of hard red and hard white wheat, removing any call for white flour, and replacing brown sugar with raw honey. It made the recipe even better, in my opinion…

The Walking Bread; The Bread Will Rise! Is Now Available!

Posted by Hallee on Sep 3, 2013 in Blog Stuff

Book 2 in my Parody Cookbook Series, The Walking Bread; The Bread Will Rise! is now available! It will be available in ebook form ONLY on Amazon for the time being. You can get it at this link. It will be available in paperback everywhere.

While confronting and redeeming a recent popular secular phenomenon, Hallee Bridgeman, A.K.A. “Hallee the Homemaker” finds every grain of truth in her second whole food, real food cookbook with in-depth analysis and amazing recipes of yeast breads, quick breads, sourdoughs, and breads using grains other than wheat. The Walking Bread is a cookbook wrapped in a parody surrounded by a comedy with a tongue firmly inserted into a cheek — but the recipes are “dead serious” and may leave readers searching for all the tasty bread crumbs.

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.

Short Cuts

Posted by Hallee on Mar 16, 2012 in Blog Stuff, Writing

Now, though, I’m sitting with the boys running around fighting with light sabers, bread is rising, laundry is washing, and a turkey is cooking in the roaster. I have to force this time on the computer — because there are so many other things around me that require my attention.

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of December 12th. As far as desserts go, it’s Gregg’s birthday on Friday, and he has requested a red velvet roll — much like Stacy’s Pumpkin Roll. I will also begin my Christmas Baking.

Posted by Hallee on Dec 7, 2011 in Gift Ideas, Holiday fare, Life, menus & menu planning

As I write this, it’s December 6th and we have just under three weeks to prepare for our Christmas baking gift giving. This is a tradition my mother taught me, and something I look forward to and plan for every single year.

Menu Monday 05 DEC 2011

Posted by Hallee on Dec 5, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, menus & menu planning

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of December 5th. As far as desserts go, I’m making Stuffed Red Velvet Cookies (but I’m going to experiment with juicing a beet to use for the red dye instead of commercial dye) for a birthday present for a work colleague of Gregg’s, and making Stacy’s Pumpkin Roll for a birthday present for the kids’ horseback riding instructor. I’ll probably be nice and make double to share with the family. :-)

Menu Monday 31 OCT 2011 – Daniel Fast Week 4

Posted by Hallee on Oct 31, 2011 in Daniel Fast, diet & fasting, menus & menu planning

Our church is currently observing 40 days of fasting, and Gregg and I decided that we would do a Daniel Fast. For the next few weeks, you will see a “vegan extreme” diet. We are consuming only fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, and drinking only water – no sugars, honey, syrups, nor eating leavened bread. Kaylee is observing her own form of this fast and will be abstaining from the sugars and the meat – she will be consuming dairy, however. The boys will be eating our meals with us, but will have some meat and will have dairy.

For breakfast, we are making a juice in our juicer out of kale, carrots, apples, and fresh ginger root. Several good juice recipes can be found here. I’ve also been making smoothies out of mango, fresh pineapple, bananas, oatmeal, flax seed, and coconut milk. We drink one or both of them for our breakfast.

For lunches, we will be eating hummus with fresh vegetables, avocado and salsa in Ezekiell 4:9 tortillas (the only tortillas I could find with nothing in them but grains), salads, or something like unsweetened peanut butter and bananas with tortillas.

I pray that by sharing our journey with you, you will receiving a blessing from it.
