Fresh & Flavorful Pico de Gallo

Posted by Hallee on Apr 17, 2012 in Daniel Fast, diet & fasting, Mexican, Recipes, Salads, sides, Snacks

My daughter Kaylee LOVES fresh pico de gallo. She’ll sit with a huge bowl of it and a bag of organic tortilla chips and just inhale it. And because of the health benefits to the fresh salsa, I don’t discourage it. With fresh tomatoes, fresh peppers, and fresh onion, the vitamins and minerals can’t be beat. In running the nutritional analysis of the recipe, this is what I discovered. Fresh Pico de Gallo is has no cholesterol, is low in sodium, very high in dietary fiber, high in manganese, high in magnesium, high in niacin, high in phosphorus, very high in potassium, high in thiamin, very high in vitamin A, very high in vitamin B6, and very high in vitamin C.

It’s also REALLY easy. I make it all summer long straight out of my garden.

Homemade Catsup

Posted by Hallee on Sep 7, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, Preserving, Recipes, sauces & spreads

When I get to working fast in the kitchen, I forget that often I should be taking pictures for posts for recipes. This is one of those occasions. I had a lot going on in my kitchen the day that I made this catsup, and I was finishing it up when I realized I should have been documenting the process. Consequently, I apologize, but I will tell you that this is an incredibly flavorful condiment. I will forever use it for our homemade catsup (or ketchup, as my spell check prefers!)

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.

Tip: How to Pasteurize an Egg

Posted by Hallee on Jan 23, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, kitchen & cooking tips

It has come to my attention that some folks are concerned about the use of raw egg yolk in my mayonnaise recipe. I tested this home pasteurization technique today to ensure that my mayonnaise recipe still works and I am happy to report that it works fine.

Favorite Turkey Salad Recipe

Posted by Hallee on Nov 27, 2009 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

One weekend before deployment, Gregg had a weekend pass and I was sick. He disappeared into the kitchen and came out with the most amazing sandwich. I’ve been trying to duplicate it ever since.

A favorite to any pot luck. I don’t think a church dinner would be complete without chilled green bean and red potato salad.

Homemade Mayonnaise

Posted by Hallee on Sep 24, 2009 in Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sauces & spreads

I much prefer making my mayonnaise fresh at home. Obviously, it saves money, but the main advantage is in the taste. Home made is not loaded with chemicals and preservatives.
