This cake has all the wonderful flavors of fall — cinnamon, pumpkin, walnuts — and is make with honey instead of refined sugar. Top it with a light whipped cream, or Lick-the-Bowl-Good-Cream Cheese Frosting.

Whole Wheat Brown Sugar Apple Crisp with Cinnamon Whipped Cream

Posted by Hallee on Aug 9, 2012 in Breakfast, Desserts, Gardening, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

It’s apple season here at our household, and our apple tree is bursting with fruit. While planning to take a meal to a family at church who just had a baby, I decided to make an apple pie. But, when I inventoried my aluminum pans, I discovered that I’m out of pie plates. Since I try not to take anything that needs to be returned to me (so that the family doesn’t have to keep up with dishes from so many church members bringing food) I decided instead to use a square cake pan and make an apple crisp. This was so good, very simple, and so easy to make.

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.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Cake

Posted by Hallee on Jan 18, 2012 in Desserts, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

I made this cake for Gregg’s birthday this year. I’d made his traditional Red Velvet Cake in the form of a cake roll for him to take to work with him that day, so I thought I’d change things up a bit. This was an amazing flavor – it tasted just like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, but in the form of a cake! I did not not take pictures of the process, but it’s very simple.

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.

Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

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

Recently, Gregg suggested a picnic for our date night. I posed the question on my personal Facebook wall and on Hallee the Homemaker’s Facebook as to what would be a good dessert for a night time picnic. A friend on my personal wall immediately came back with “Whoopie Pies.” It was intended to be a clever joke, but I thought it was brilliant. Only, whoopie pies are traditionally chocolate, and Gregg isn’t a huge chocolate fan. So, I thought, “I bet someone has made a red velvet whoopie pie.” A quick search took me to Liz at Hoosier Homemade – a long time resident of my blog roll and the site to which I often turn for cupcake ideas. This recipe was EASY. I adjusted it slightly. The cookies I made were big – this recipe gave me 6 whoopie pies. However, if I were going to make it again (and I will – maybe even today!) – I would cut the size in half to come up with 12 pies. I was working fast to get these in the oven so that they could cool in time to make for our date, so I did not take any pictures of the process.

Menu Monday 03 OCT 2011

Posted by Hallee on Oct 3, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, menus & menu planning

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of October 3rd. As far as desserts go, Scott has been begging me to make him some Red Velvet Cupcakes. I also have a ton of new cookie cutters, so I may make some Traditional Sugar Cookies as well.

It is my daughter’s mini-fall break. We have been at my parents’ house all weekend and will return home sometime tonight. While we’ve been gone, I’ve had a turkey breast defrosting in my refrigerator to make lunch meat for the week.

Menu Monday 17 AUG 2011 – Gregg is Home to Stay!!

Posted by Hallee on Aug 15, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, menus & menu planning

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of August 17th. We pick my husband up tonight at the airport and he is home to stay! From now on, my menus will be for our entire family! As far as desserts go, this week I will be making Stuffed Red Velvet Cookies for my husband, and a batch of Hershey’s Mini-Kisses cookies for Kaylee’s school lunch. I also have a big batch of pears from a friend at church, so I’m going to attempt a Pear Tart, and will hopefully be posting that recipe soon!
