Mascarpone Cheesecake with Vanilla Almond Crust

Posted by Hallee on Mar 6, 2010 in Desserts, Hallee's Galley

I derived this cheesecake from one I saw on a food show one time. I’m always afraid when I make cheesecake that it’s going to be heavy and dry when it comes out. That’s never happened to me – and this recipe especially is so moist, and so melt-in-your-mouth that during a dinner party Gregg and hosted with four other couples, when dessert was served and everyone took a bite, there was a collective silence, then moan of appreciation. It was amazing and those friends still talk about that dinner party.

Essentials: Bakeware Part 2 — Cakes

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

I thought I’d do the next Essentials series with bakeware, but as I went to collect it all to take pictures, I realized just how much I had. So, I’m breaking it down into types: Cookies, Cakes, Pies, and Desserts. I’m afraid that this post is going to be a little long. Making cakes, decorating cakes, playing with different cake recipes — that is a passion of mine. I have been collecting cake related paraphenalia for two decades, and have an extensive collection.

Essentials: Pans, Frying Pans, Woks

Posted by Hallee on Jan 12, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, kitchen & cooking tips

I LOVE these pans. I will admit that I don’t use the 6″ pan often. I would consider this set complete without it. I use the 10″ pans ALL THE TIME. I use them for grilled cheese, casseroles, sauces, fried chicken, fried fish, doughnuts — you name it, I use these pans to cook it. I would be lost without these pans.

Essentials: Pots

Posted by Hallee on Jan 5, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, kitchen & cooking tips

I’ll begin with the very basics: your pots. Without a pot, you couldn’t cook a meal. Granted, without a frying pan you couldn’t fry an egg, and without a bowl, you couldn’t mix, but there has to be a beginning. And this beginning is your pots.

Hearty Beef Stir Fry

Posted by Hallee on Nov 10, 2009 in entrees, Hallee's Galley, Oriental, Recipes

My family loves this dish. It’s so full of fresh vegetables and good vitamins. Serve it with white or brown rice and Chinese noodles. We even buy little boxes of fortune cookies to make dinner festive.

Moroccan Rice with Dried Fruit & Nuts

Posted by Hallee on Oct 31, 2009 in Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sides

I modified this recipe to be able to make it with what I had on hand. For instance, the original recipe called for fresh saffron and white rice; however, I don’t keep fresh saffron in my cupboard, but I had a package of saffron rice. I am posting the recipe as I made it, so that I can be confident that you’re getting a good recipe that I’ve tried out.

Girls’ Night Out (In)

Posted by Hallee on Aug 13, 2009 in Biblical womanhood, Christian Faith

White Chili, Chocolate Cake, & Faith Like Potatoes. My friends would arrive less than three hours from the time that I held the four frozen solid pieces of chicken. I plopped the meat in the big stock pot, covered them with water, and proceeded to make white chili.
