Last week I made this great recipe. It’s one I’ve made before and my family enjoys it. I served it over rice pilaf but you could serve it over mashed potatoes or couscous.
One Sunday morning, getting ready for church, about 50 minutes before we had to leave, I realized suddenly that I had to bring breakfast to Sunday School. In a panic, I did a quick scan of my baking cupboard and spotted a can of pumpkin. My mind was whirling — what could I do? Muffins? No time to fill muffin cups. Cake! I could do a coffee cake. So…here it is. Pumpkin coffee cake. The first time I made it, I had it in the oven no less than seven minutes after deciding what to make. Thankfully, it turned out well and I made it, slower and with pictures, the next morning.Pin It
I graduated from Spencer High School, home of the mighty Greenwave. Don’t ask me what that means – in all of my years there, I was never able to figure that out. Our mascot was an owl. BUT, our colors were green & gold. That was always cool, because my family is from Springfield, Oregon, a small town that is a sister-city to Eugene Oregon, home of the Oregon Ducks – whose colors are also green & gold. Which is what makes this casserole so much fun. I could take it to a class reunion or a football party and be a winner either way.Pin It
These were SOOOO yummy. And, such a nice break from a zucchini bread kind of sweet with squash. Gregg said that it was too sweet, but I gave him a large piece. When I cut the piece sizes to about the size of fudge, they were the perfect size.Pin It
This colorful salad can be a nice change of pace from the traditional Coastal Cole Slaw type salad. You can use zucchini or yellow squash. It is perfect for the summer picnic, because there is no mayonnaise in it.Pin It
This is an amazing recipe for making something new and different with all of that fresh produce coming out of the garden. You are getting such a wide variety of fresh vegetables, all kinds of good for your body vitamins and minerals, and is something different from the standard sauteing that I tend to do as a default.Pin It
Squash blossoms make a delightful appetizer, and they are often stuffed with mixtures similar to fillings used in stuffed leaves and vegetables. This vegetarian version calls for a mixture of rice, tomatoes, and herbs, and is served at room temperature.Pin It
This recipe is so easy to make, and is such a beautiful side dish to almost any sandwich. We love this kind of side for our game night dinners when we tend to go with Turkey Burgers or Root Beer Barbecued Beef Sandwiches.Pin It
I’ve known Jen since we were pregnant with our almost 5-year-olds. She is the crock-pot recipe queen to me, and a very dear friend. I often wished we lived closer than the few hundred miles that separate us, because seeing her a few times a year just isn’t enough.
Here is her first recipe for our blog – but I hope it won’t be her last. I intend to talk her into a regular crockpot column here at Hallee the Homemaker!Pin It
