Menu Monday – 13 FEB 12 – Valentine’s Day Week!

Posted by Hallee on Feb 13, 2012 in Hallee's Galley, menus & menu planning

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of February 13th. As far as desserts go, I made 48 strawberry cupcakes that I will be frosting with buttercream frosting Monday morning and sending half of them off to work with Gregg. I’m also going to make Traditional Sugar Cookies to make a cookie bouquet for a Valentine’s Day gift for Scott’s teacher.

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.

These cupcakes were so much fun to make. I just put them together with things I had in my pantry.

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.

Decadent & Creamy Marshmallow Coconut Frosting

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

I made this frosting to fill my Red Velvet Whoopie Pies, but it would be an amazing frosting for any kind of cupcake or cake.

Natalee’s Summertime Strawberry Cupcakes

Posted by Hallee on Jun 21, 2011 in Desserts, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

I wrote her a few weeks ago and asked her to make me a cupcake worthy of the first day of summer. I have to tell you — this is my new favorite cucpake recipe. I may forever and always do strawberries. YUM. And, the ladybugs just were the perfect touch to these amazing cakes.

Menu Monday 29 NOV 2010

Posted by Hallee on Nov 29, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, menus & menu planning

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of November 29th. As far as desserts go, My husband’s birthday is in 2 weeks. I’m going to prepare his birthday box, and include Heavenly Red Velvet Cake mini cupcakes and some Stuffed Red Velvet Cookies (not stuffed). In the meantime, our cookie jar is getting low, so I’ll probably make some whole wheat chocolate chip cookies (which I strangely don’t have a recipe up for and will rectify that soon!)

Decadent Cookies & Cream Cupcakes

Posted by Hallee on Jun 3, 2010 in Desserts, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

My friend Heather at Out of the Box into the Kitchen posted the link for this recipe on her Facebook. I’d been looking for something fun and new to take to a church party, and the pictures were so amazing and so appealing that, despite my aversion to packaged cookies, made me want to make them. I found organic chocolate sandwich cookies and felt moderately better about the recipe — but enjoyed the flavor despite the processed product in it. (HA!) So, I’m not going to fool you into thinking there’s anything moderately good for you about these. I did use organic eggs and organic cookies — that’s the best I can give you. But, oh my, they were good. Very rich, but very good.

Natalee’s Memorial Day Cupcakes

Posted by Hallee on May 28, 2010 in Desserts, Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare, Recipes

My friend Natalee is a veterinarian living in Washington state with her husband and 2 awesome kids. Imported from Canada some years ago, she does things with cupcakes you just cannot believe.You can find her other amazing contributions to the blog here. I wrote her a couple of weeks ago and asked if she could do a cupcake for Memorial Day. I cannot tell you how thrilled I was when she decided to do something with Forget-Me-Nots. These flowers are traditional memorials for Canada’s Newfoundland’s war dead instead of the Flanders Poppies that are popular in America. These cupcakes are beautiful. She named them “Red, White, and Blueberry Cupcakes with Forget-Me-Nots.”

“Team Jacob” Cupcakes

Posted by Hallee on May 25, 2010 in Desserts, Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare, Recipes

A friend’s 8-year-old daughter asked for a “Jacob” cake. For Kaylee, I could have gone all abstract with bloodly feathers, apples, and stacks of books. For a bunch of second graders, I had to be a little more inventive. So, here’s what I came up with:
