Tip: Using Flax Seed for Eggs in Baking

Posted by Hallee on Nov 27, 2012 in Hallee's Galley, kitchen & cooking tips, Natural Health

So, I’ve tried the flaxseed in a quick bread (Old Fashioned Whole Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes) and a yeast bread (Honey Oatmeal Bread) and both times were resounding success. As good as flaxseed is for you, I will reach for flaxseed before eggs in daily baking now.

Roasting a Whole Chicken

Posted by Hallee on Feb 24, 2012 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, kitchen & cooking tips, Recipes

These conversations all happened within a week or so of each other. They intrigued me only because roasting a whole chicken is my “I don’t want to put effort into dinner so I’m going to roast a whole chicken” fallback.

Perfect Every Time Hard Boiled Egg

Posted by Hallee on May 27, 2011 in Breakfast, Hallee's Galley, kitchen & cooking tips, Recipes

There are as many methods to cook hard boiled eggs as there are people out there telling you how to cook anything. Every cooking show on television has some different trick or quirk about it. I’ll tell you that I’ve tried all of the tips I’ve ever heard, because I’m curious about things like that and want to find “the best way”. But, I always go back to the way my mom taught me, because it works every single time. When I use this method, I always have perfectly cooked hard boiled eggs.

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.

Popcorn? Really?

Posted by Hallee on Sep 14, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, kitchen & cooking tips

As I was doing research for purchasing my grain mill, I read all sorts of “don’t do’s.” One of them was don’t try to grind anything that was too hard, including popcorn. But, when I got my grain mill (a NutriMill) the booklet that came with the machine said, “Popcorn will make the best cornmeal you’ve ever tasted.”
