Savvy Savings Sunflower Seed Substitute Tahini Paste

Posted by Hallee on May 10, 2010 in Daniel Fast, diet & fasting, Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sides, starters

I was out of Tasty Traditional Tahini Paste and out of sesame seeds to whip up a quick batch. I began to explore a frugal substitute and ended up using roasted sunflower seeds. I made a perfect paste using organic roasted sunflower seeds that was both pure and delicious.

Quick & Succulent Pizza Snack

Posted by Hallee on Apr 22, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, Parenting, preschool activities, Recipes, Snacks

I improvised. I had some table water cookies and thought that they would make a good crust. I worried that they would get soggy, but they didn’t at all. They were perfect. I made the sauce quickly, using ketchup and spices. Twenty minutes after Scott voiced the desire for pizza for lunch, we were sitting down to enjoy it.

Sesame Baklava (Baklavas Sousamenios)

Serving this delightful and easy version of baklava – a layered sweet made with thin phyllo sheets – is an old custom on Christmas Eve in Thrace, and other areas of Greece. Made with olive oil, the pastry meets Greek Orthodox Lenten-type fasting guidelines, and it’s a delicious alternative to other versions of baklava, especially for those who avoid nuts.

Stuffed Grape Leaves with Rice & Grated Vegetables (Dolmathakia Yialantzi)

In a Mexican restaurant, my husband, Gregg, will determine whether he’ll be back or not based on the taste and quality of their tamales. I do the same thing with Greek and Mediterranean restaurants and grape leaves. Grape leaves are an absolute favorite dish of mine. You can easily refrigerate any extra stuffing and use it as a side dish for another meal. The lack of meat, dairy, and eggs makes this the perfect dish for Lent or Daniel Fast. And, notice how I’ve given you yet another wonderful dish with which to use up those zucchini come August?

Hallee’s Heavenly Homemade Pizza

Posted by Hallee on Nov 15, 2009 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Italian, Recipes

My kids love homemade pizza. They do not enjoy typical takeout or deli pizzas at all. This crust is just right and makes the pizza as good as it is.

Moroccan Menu on the Fly

Posted by Hallee on Oct 31, 2009 in fellowship, Hallee's Galley, menus & menu planning, Recipes

I had some friends over for dinner last night. I’m not as good at entertaining people as my husband is. I’m much better at cooking and serving a meal while I listen to him entertaining and interacting with people (heh). But cooking for people is what I love to do, and even though he’s gone, he encourages me to still have people over.
