Let Them Into the Kitchen

Posted by Hallee on May 8, 2012 in Family, Life, Parenting, Raising boys, Raising girls, Raising teens

I recently made eggplant parmesan for dinner. (Recipe forthcoming). I had Scott and Johnathan (Jeb) in the kitchen with me, as is typically the norm. Jeb was on his chair watching me cook.

While I was contending with something on the stove, Scott decided to help.

Savory Cornbread Dressing

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

Until I made this recipe, I had never made any kind of stuffing or dressing before, other than Stove Top. Working at the soup kitchen, I had seen the head cook there make it a few times, so I consulted her on how to make it on a scaled-down version. I was really pleased with the results.

Don’t let the lack of a large kitchen and gadgets and appliances keep you from cooking, from creating, from enjoying the beauty of food that God has provided. Just cook. The freshest, best ingredients will make up for a lot of lack of other things.

3 Chores You Should Do Every Night

Posted by Hallee on Jun 1, 2010 in Housekeeping

Evening chores are the hardest. Most of us have put in a long day and our bed beckons. It’s so easy to think that you can tackle it in the morning refreshed and ready for another day. But when you put it off, then you put it off again and put it off again until you’ve lost the control of your environment. If you can accomplish these three chores evening, before retiring for the night, you can keep a handle on your household. These are the three main areas that typically get out of control and bog down our time when it’s time to clean. If they’re already done, then we can focus on the actual cleaning rather than catching up.

3 Chores You Should Do Every Morning

Posted by Hallee on May 27, 2010 in Housekeeping

I accomplish these tasks before I even pour my first cup of coffee in the morning. These three chores will take less than 10 minutes out of your entire morning, but they will make a world of difference in how your home feels, and will help set the tone for the entire day.

The Fake House

Posted by Hallee on Dec 4, 2009 in Biblical womanhood, Housekeeping

There are people who clean their whole house every day, so that if company was coming, there would be little they would have to do to prepare. I’m not like that.

Changing Seasons

Posted by Hallee on Sep 20, 2009 in Biblical womanhood, Housekeeping

I love the change in seasons. As summer ends and the mornings cool, the leaves change colors and school routines fall in place, my mind turns to — seasonal housekeeping!

Tip: My “New” Stand Mixer

Posted by Hallee on Aug 10, 2009 in Hallee's Galley, kitchen & cooking tips

Try replacing the drawer and cabinet door handles or knobs, and the hinges with a nice looking but inexpensive set that will accent the look of the room.

For around $20, you can get a can of countertop treatment which fills in the cuts scratches and dings, and coats the whole counter, making that Formica look better than new in one of 40 possible modern colors.

Rope LED lighting is inexpensive and provides a warm, soft glow under the counter.

Maybe hubby can paint mis-matched appliances to match your other appliances.
