Valentine’s Day Gifts From the Kitchen

Posted by Hallee on Feb 10, 2012 in Gift Ideas, Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare

One of the reasons I love Valentine’s Day is because there are so many different from-the-kitchen crafty ideas – easy, inexpensive, fun ways to show someone you love them. You can keep it as simple as some construction paper and paper doilies, or go as extreme as cookie flower bouquets.

Planning for 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.

Fluffy Homemade Marshmallow Creme

Posted by Hallee on Oct 8, 2011 in Desserts, Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sauces & spreads

Every time I’ve made my own marshmallow creme for a recipe, be it for Homemade Fudge or the filling for Whoopie Pies, the flavor of the end result is so much better than if I’d used a jar of “marshmallow fluff.” It’s so easy to make that I haven’t bought the jar stuff in years. This recipe makes about 16 ounces, which is more than the equivalent of two jars.

Menu Monday 27 DEC 10 – New Year’s Week!

Posted by Hallee on Dec 27, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare, menus & menu planning

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of December 27th. As far as desserts go, we still have some Captain Crunch Candy and some fudge left, but the cookie jar is empty. I will probably make some easy cookie to fill the jar and use the left over marshmallow cream and Rice Crispies from the goodies I made last week and make some Rice Crispies treats. We’ll also make a celebration New Year’s 2011 cake.

Valentine’s Day Treats for School

Posted by Hallee on Feb 1, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare, Parenting, Raising girls

These treats were made for Kaylee’s 4th grade teachers and school administrators — so, 3 years ago. They weren’t designed to offer any kind of tutorial in how to do them, so I apologize for that, but they give you an idea of how easy it is to put together something personal, something special for those people in your life whom you want to gift with Valentines.

Engaging Eggnog Icing

Posted by Hallee on Dec 26, 2009 in Desserts, Hallee's Galley

Do you have some leftover eggnog, too? Not a problem. A friend of a friend shared an Eggnog Cookie recipe that is quick and easy and a perfect “after Christmas” treat. They taste just great topped with nutmeg. They taste even better topped with eggnog icing. They taste the very best topped with both!

Do you have some leftover eggnog, too? Not a problem. A friend of a friend shared an Eggnog Cookie recipe that is quick and easy and a perfect “after Christmas” treat. They taste just great topped with nutmeg or eggnog icing but you may want to try them with this Rum Icing.

This is my grandmother’s fudge recipe. We look forward to it every Christmas. My family has been making it for five decades, and will be making it for many many more decades to come.
