Jen’s Greek Crockpot Chicken

Posted by Hallee on Aug 26, 2011 in entrees, Hallee's Galley, Mediterranean, Recipes

Last week I made this great recipe. It’s one I’ve made before and my family enjoys it. I served it over rice pilaf but you could serve it over mashed potatoes or couscous.

Southern Cheese Grits

Posted by Hallee on Jun 2, 2011 in American Quisine, Breakfast, Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sides

Grits, for those of you who haven’t spent a good portion of your life below the Mason-Dixon line, is a cornmeal made from hominy. Hominy is hulled corn kernels that have been stripped of their bran and germ. What the American Indians gave the Pilgrims was likely hominy. “Lye hominy” is made when the kernels of corn are soaked in a light lye solution. You can get white grits (made from white corn) or yellow grits (made from yellow corn). The difference between grits and polenta, other than regions of America, is that polenta is made from corn that retains the germ of the grain.

Slightly Spicy Couscous Stuffed Tomatoes

This dish is wonderful served as a vegetable side dish or as a light lunch entrée. Brushing the inside of the tomato shell with Tabasco adds a robust hint of the Southwest.

Tantalizing Tomato & Onion Tart

Posted by Hallee on Sep 8, 2010 in Breakfast, diet & fasting, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Leviticus, Recipes, sides, Snacks

I’ll admit that I have not yet made this dish. However, it sounds fantastic and it is more of a “when I add it to the menu” kind of thing rather than an “if I add it to the menu.” This would be an amazing brunch or lunch dish, a perfect potluck change from the normal pot of country beans, or the base for a vegetarian dinner. It is almost limitless as a dish. I cannot wait to try it.

Comfort Food Meatloaf

Posted by Hallee on Jul 9, 2010 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

Meatloaf is one of my favorite dishes, if I prepare it or if my mother prepares it. I’ve learned not to order it in restaurants or get it off of buffets, because a lot of people do something to it that I just don’t do – but I’m not sure what that is. I’ve always used green peppers when I make it, but I didn’t have any the day I made it for these pictures, so I used yellow peppers. I LOVED the difference. I will from now on use yellow peppers to make my meatloaf.

Greek Lenten Tomato Fritters (Domatokeftethes)

Tomato fritters are a delightful appetizer or side dish, and a specialty of Santorini, a Greek island known for its tomatoes. The combination of herbs can be adjusted to include dill, parsley, basil, mint, or oregano, depending on taste preference. The recipe calls for self-rising flour. This meatless, eggless, dairyless dish is perfect for Lent or a Daniel Fast. The fresh vegetables in it also make a wonderful summer dish to prepare with the bounty out of a vegetable garden (and, come on – who isn’t desperately searching for zucchini recipes right around mid-August?)

Greek Meatless Stuffed Cabbage Rolls with Rice (Lahanodolmathes Orphana)

The word “orphana” means “orphaned” and in Greek cooking, usually means a dish that can be made with meat, but in this case is made without. Cabbage is a favorite winter food, and this meatless recipe is delightful and a Lenten favorite. These cabbage rolls are delicious as a main dish, but I often make them using small pieces of the cabbage leaf, to create small rolls that are perfect as a side dish, addition to a buffet table, or appetizer. Try them also using chard leaves and Romaine lettuce leaves. Because of the lack of meat, this dish is perfect for Lent or a Daniel Fast.

Chilled Green Bean & Red ‘Tater Salad

Posted by Hallee on Oct 14, 2009 in Hallee's Galley, Recipes, Salads, sides

A favorite to any pot luck. I don’t think a church dinner would be complete without chilled green bean and red potato salad.
