Daring ‘Omega-3′ Salmon Tacos

Posted by Hallee on Aug 31, 2011 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Mexican, Recipes

I love fish tacos. I discovered them at the Cheesecake Factory in Boston and haven’t met one I didn’t like yet.

I also love salmon. My parents are from Oregon, and my grandfather loved salmon fishing. I grew up eating salmon fresh off of the grill all summer long.

Hot Potato Salad

Posted by Hallee on Feb 27, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, Recipes, Salads, sides

Because of a really bad incident in WWII with my grandfather’s unit involving some bad potato salad and several resulting deaths, my family members have never been big potato salad eaters.

Apparently, I made this recipe up because it is made and served right away, avoiding any bad spoilage issues. My mom always made this dish to go with barbecued chicken. It is the perfect flavor accompaniment for the tangy smokiness of the sauce. She insists that I made the recipe up one night when she made BBQ chicken. I honestly can’t remember that, and I can’t remember her ever not making it. But I’ve always been very active in the kitchen, so it’s possible that as a child I came up with the recipe.

Tip: How to Pasteurize an Egg

Posted by Hallee on Jan 23, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, kitchen & cooking tips

It has come to my attention that some folks are concerned about the use of raw egg yolk in my mayonnaise recipe. I tested this home pasteurization technique today to ensure that my mayonnaise recipe still works and I am happy to report that it works fine.

Turkey Burgers with Basil Mayonnaise

Posted by Hallee on Dec 19, 2009 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

I didn’t used to like ground turkey. Back in my previous life with no grocery budget to speak of, I’d buy ground turkey because it was cheaper than ground beef. But it was gristly and just didn’t taste good. I came across some ground turkey breast on a manager’s special at my grocery store and thought I’d give it another go. After much searching, I found this amazing recipe. I’ve made it twice now, tweaked it a bit here and there, and it is a WONDERFUL sandwich.

Favorite Turkey Salad Recipe

Posted by Hallee on Nov 27, 2009 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

One weekend before deployment, Gregg had a weekend pass and I was sick. He disappeared into the kitchen and came out with the most amazing sandwich. I’ve been trying to duplicate it ever since.

Friday Fried Fish Dinner

Posted by Hallee on Sep 24, 2009 in Hallee's Galley, menus & menu planning, Recipes

Last night, we had a fried fish dinner. It was quite yummy, albeit not quite “healthy” in the whole grains/good fats arena. My family is good with that (ha!) and I try to indulge fried fish or fried chicken about once a month.

Homemade Mayonnaise

Posted by Hallee on Sep 24, 2009 in Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sauces & spreads

I much prefer making my mayonnaise fresh at home. Obviously, it saves money, but the main advantage is in the taste. Home made is not loaded with chemicals and preservatives.
