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.

Peachy Overnight French Toast

Posted by Hallee on Dec 22, 2011 in Blog Stuff, Breakfast, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

I made this to take to church for breakfast for my Sunday School class. It was really good, and required no syrup for serving. I made it the evening before, popped it into the oven 30 minutes before we had to leave for church, and was able to serve it still warm to my class. I did not take any pictures of the process and I apologize for that. But, the recipe was too good not to share.

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.

Menu Monday 05 DEC 2011

Posted by Hallee on Dec 5, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, menus & menu planning

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of December 5th. As far as desserts go, I’m making Stuffed Red Velvet Cookies (but I’m going to experiment with juicing a beet to use for the red dye instead of commercial dye) for a birthday present for a work colleague of Gregg’s, and making Stacy’s Pumpkin Roll for a birthday present for the kids’ horseback riding instructor. I’ll probably be nice and make double to share with the family. :-)

Italian Ground Beef Skillet

Posted by Hallee on Nov 18, 2011 in entrees, Hallee's Galley, Italian, Recipes

This is a quick pasta sauce that every member of our family will love. The kale is a wonderful source of vitamins A, C, and K, as well as omega 3 and omega 6. You can use any kind of pasta you want when making this dish. It takes very little time to make, and using grass-fed beef and organic vegetables it’s still barely $3 per person.

Tex-Mex Ground Beef Skillet

Posted by Hallee on Nov 17, 2011 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Mexican, Recipes

Chili-Mac is one of my kids’ favorite dinners. I love how this is served over cornbread instead of sloppy-joe style over hamburger buns. This is a very-quick, easy to make meal – especially if you’re using leftover cornbread. I used grass-fed beef, and even with organic vegetables it’s still less than $4 per serving.

Cajun Ground Beef Skillet

Posted by Hallee on Nov 15, 2011 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

This is a wonderful recipe with a hint of kick. If you have pre-prepared rice, it’s a quick fix. But remember – the rice will take 45 minutes to cook so try to plan ahead a little bit.

Menu Monday – 07 NOV 11 – Daniel Fast Week 5

Posted by Hallee on Nov 7, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, menus & menu planning

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of November 7th.

Our church is currently observing 40 days of fasting, and Gregg and I decided that we would do a Daniel Fast. We are on our final week of the fast, and , you have seen a “vegan extreme” diet. We are consuming only fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, and drinking only water – no sugars, honey, syrups, nor eating leavened bread. Kaylee is observing her own form of this fast and will be abstaining from the sugars and the meat – she will be consuming dairy, however. The boys will be eating our meals with us, but will have some meat and will have dairy.

For breakfast, we are making a juice in our juicer out of kale, carrots, apples, and fresh ginger root. Several good juice recipes can be found here. I’ve also been making smoothies out of mango, fresh pineapple, bananas, oatmeal, flax seed, and coconut milk. We drink one or both of them for our breakfast.

For lunches, we will be eating hummus with fresh vegetables, avocado and salsa in Ezekiell 4:9 tortillas (the only tortillas I could find with nothing in them but grains), salads, or something like unsweetened peanut butter and bananas with tortillas.

I pray that by sharing our journey with you, you will receiving a blessing from it.
