Easter and Eostre

We aren’t going to judge or condemn what anyone else does anything different – from decorating Easter eggs to full blown gift giving bonanzas. Each family needs to make their own decisions and their own traditions for holidays. This is just how our family has decided to observe this, what is to us, the most holy and amazing of all holidays.

Roasting the Perfect Turkey

Roasting a turkey may seem like a daunting task, but it’s really not that difficult. It’s just a matter of making sure it’s cooked all the way more than anything, and making sure you don’t over-cook it. Under-cooked turkey is a health hazard, and over-cooked turkey can be dry.

Old Fashioned Pecan Pie

Posted by Hallee on Nov 19, 2010 in Desserts, Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare, Recipes

I love pecan pie. It is absolutely one of my favorite pies. This was the first time I made this particular recipe for pumpkin pie and I loved it. It’s easy, few ingredients, and tastes fantastic. I used whole wheat flour and coconut oil for the crust.

Fresh Cranberry Sauce

Posted by Hallee on Nov 19, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare, Recipes, Salads, sauces & spreads, sides

I do not enjoy eating turkey without cranberry sauce. It’s just part of that whole dinner to me. Once I tasted cranberry sauce made with fresh cranberries, I just can’t imagine going back to the canned kind. This recipe is wonderful – the orange in it cuts the tartness of the berries perfectly.

Easy Christmas Wreath

Posted by Hallee on Dec 9, 2009 in Housekeeping, Stewardship

I priced Christmas wreaths sometime before Thanksgiving and was just appalled at what they’re getting for these things. I was at Garden Ridge, so I looked at a $49 wreath and made one as nearly identical to it as I could.

Harvest Bread: a recipe for children

Posted by Hallee on Oct 12, 2009 in Breads, Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare, Parenting, Recipes

I was looking around online the other day to find something uniquely Canadian to post about Thanksgiving. Since Canadian Thanksgiving is actually a celebration of harvest and has nothing to do with pilgrims and the new world, what I found referenced over and over again was Harvest Bread.
