FarmLit Anyone?

Posted by Hallee on Apr 2, 2014 in Giveaways, Hallee's Galley, Life, Writing

My typical reader is a believing woman between the ages of 25 and 40 who cares about the food she eats and serves her family, focusing on real ingredients—possibly organic, local, and seasonal food. She has begun to realize there is a point where food meets faith and is willing to go exploring in that neighborhood.

30 Days of Thankfulness Day 22

Posted by Hallee on Nov 22, 2013 in Hallee's Galley, Life

I am so thankful that I live in a place where I have access to a Whole Foods, a Trader Joes, a Good Foods Co-Op, and innumerable farmers markets. I have an Arab grocery store where I can purchase products made without pork and local meats raised in good environments, and I have friends who give me farm fresh eggs. I have access to local grass-fed beef and local grass-fed lambs. I also have access to the organic bulk grains and dried legumes that I purchase and store because they don’t go bad.

“Easy Two Ingredients”

Posted by Hallee on Oct 24, 2013 in Life

Now that fall is here, Facebook and Pinterest are alive with “easy two ingredient” recipes for all the holiday baking that start with a cake mix then you add a can of pumpkin or something similar and…BAM!…dessert.

I would like to point out, though, that it isn’t two ingredients. It is, at best, about 20 ingredients, many of which are harmful and TOXIC to your body.

I’ll break down a Duncan Hines Yellow Cake mix for you:

Dear Hallee: Real Food & Visiting Family

Posted by Hallee on Jul 10, 2013 in Family, Hallee's Galley, kitchen & cooking tips, Life

I have really been trying to feed my family better. We’ve recently switched to mainly organic foods, when we can afford them. My question comes in an upcoming trip to visit family. We’ll be there around 3 nights and they don’t really eat the way we do. When you travel, how do you eat? Do you just eat what the host fixes, regardless of what’s in it? Do you take food and possibly offend the host? I’m stuck in the fact that I really don’t want to mess up our newly established eating habits, but I also don’t want to offend anybody either. Signed, Traveling Mama

Passing the Mantle

Posted by Hallee on Apr 5, 2013 in Hallee's Galley, menus & menu planning, Parenting, Raising teens

I spent quite a bit of time developing a menu for them for the week. Kaylee is more than capable in the kitchen, but cooking one meal a week versus cooking for a week straight are two different things entirely – especially when you’re a 16-year-old. kaylee menuShe and I worked together to create a menu that wouldn’t overwhelm her…and I made a few concessions that I wouldn’t make for myself. For instance, I bought spaghetti noodles, where I would make my own pasta. And, I bought some organic boxed mac & cheese and some organic tater tots to go with hot dog night. But, for the most part, the menu is homemade, real food.

A Cultural, Spiritual, & Emotional Loss

Posted by Hallee on Feb 20, 2013 in Hallee's Galley, Life

Over the last few decades, the majority of our society has moved away from fresh, whole foods and into packaged, prepared, preserved products. We’ve lost something very fundamental as a result. Opening cans and dumping, slicing a vent hole into a plastic sealed microwavable tray, “just add water” – those things have taken away from something that, I believe, is an inherent desire within us to make the process of growing, preparing, cooking, and serving a joyful experience. We’ve taken something that should be a very basic delight and turned it into a tedious chore that has us seeking any time-saving product that will get it done faster and with less hassle.

But at what cost?

MSG on Fresh Produce?

Posted by Hallee on Jan 29, 2013 in Hallee's Galley, Life

Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) is baaaaaaaaaaaaaad. Bad, bad, bad, bad. Don’t consume it. Read labels and make sure that nothing you feed your family contains MSG. Among other horrible things (along with damaging the retinas in eyes, causing obesity, messing with the reproductive system) is that it’s a neurotoxin. That means that it’s poison for the brain.

Honey Spiced Pears

Posted by Hallee on Aug 24, 2012 in Gardening, Hallee's Galley, Preserving

Some friends of ours have a pear tree that just overwhelms them with abundance on an annual basis. I am always happy to take as many pears off their hands as they’ll give me. This year, that turned into two laundry baskets full of pears. I am always on the search for real food canning recipes – that cut out the processed sugar that is used as a preservative in anything using fruit. I was thrilled to find this recipe.

Dinner on the Go

Posted by Hallee on Aug 10, 2012 in Hallee's Galley, Life, Parenting

Yesterday, I planned to make hamburgers. But, my afternoon got away from me and I didn’t get the buns made in time. While I thought about what to do, it occurred to me that I don’t want to spend the next 8 weeks eating beef hot dogs and hamburgers. I figured, why not just make a meal and serve it on paper plates?
