Homemade Cinnamon Roll Coffee Creamer

Posted by Hallee on Feb 11, 2012 in beverages, Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sauces & spreads

I love this recipe, because there is no sugar in it. It uses maple syrup as the sweetener. The addition of the almond extract is the perfect flavor to make your cup of coffee taste like a cinnamon roll right out of the oven.

Homemade Half & Half

Posted by Hallee on Feb 11, 2012 in beverages, Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sauces & spreads

You’d think with a name like “half & half” that there would be some logic surrounding figuring out what it is. But, strangely, there’s not. At least, there wasn’t for me. I had to look it up.

Dear Hallee: Eating Dairy & Meat

Posted by Hallee on Jan 19, 2012 in Christian Faith, Hallee's Galley, Life, Natural Health

What are your thoughts on dairy and meat? I am so confused about it all, there is so much conflicting info out there.

As much as I wish otherwise, there isn’t a simple answer to this question.

Tip: Baking with Evaporated Milk

Posted by Hallee on Aug 17, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, kitchen & cooking tips

I grew up in a family of six. Other than my mom, we were all big milk drinkers. Our household went through a gallon of milk every day.

When my mom baked, she never used the milk out of our gallons – she always used canned “evaporated milk.” It’s how I grew up baking.

Educating Ourselves on School Lunches

Posted by Hallee on Apr 15, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, Life, Parenting, Raising teens

I think school lunches have been on the radar for at least the last year – with Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution airing last April. I know a lot of those in the “real food world” have been speaking out about them for years, but to little to no avail. But Jamie Oliver got the mainstream America talking, at least for a little while. School lunch news this week has been all freshly abuzz with the premiere of Food Revolution 2, an article in the Washington Post about flavored milk, and an article in the Chicago Tribune about a school that didn’t allow any child without a medical permission slip to eat anything but the lunches provided by the school.

Emergency Substitution: Sweetened Condensed Milk

Posted by Hallee on May 5, 2010 in Desserts, Hallee's Galley, kitchen & cooking tips, Recipes

Sometimes when you find you didn’t have great planning and took advantage of a relatively well stocked pantry that didn’t end up being as well stocked as you thought, and when you’re baking a cake at 5:00 in the morning and you have two sleeping toddlers upstairs and a husband in Afghanistan, and it’s not really convenient to run to the store to grab that one pantry item you need right now, it’s nice to know that there is a possible emergency substitution. (heh) This happened to me. As I was making Tres Leches Cake for Cinco de Mayo, I went to put together my “three milks” and discovered I didn’t have any sweetened condensed milk. Normally, I would have just set the cake aside to do later, but the milk needs to be added to the cake while it’s still warm, and at 5AM, there was no way I could do it. So, I discovered a good sweetened condensed milk substitution. The cake tasted fantastic, so I’m calling this one a success.
