Valentine’s Day Gifts From the Kitchen

Posted by Hallee on Feb 10, 2012 in Gift Ideas, Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare

One of the reasons I love Valentine’s Day is because there are so many different from-the-kitchen crafty ideas – easy, inexpensive, fun ways to show someone you love them. You can keep it as simple as some construction paper and paper doilies, or go as extreme as cookie flower bouquets.

Gregg’s Happy Birthday Red Velvet Cake Roll

Posted by Gregg on Dec 16, 2011 in Blog Stuff, Desserts, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

I made this for Gregg’s birthday this year. He took it to work with him, and said it didn’t last six minutes before it was all gone. I know the filling tasted amazing – Gregg said the whole thing was absolutely wonderful.

Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

Posted by Hallee on Oct 8, 2011 in Desserts, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

Recently, Gregg suggested a picnic for our date night. I posed the question on my personal Facebook wall and on Hallee the Homemaker’s Facebook as to what would be a good dessert for a night time picnic. A friend on my personal wall immediately came back with “Whoopie Pies.” It was intended to be a clever joke, but I thought it was brilliant. Only, whoopie pies are traditionally chocolate, and Gregg isn’t a huge chocolate fan. So, I thought, “I bet someone has made a red velvet whoopie pie.” A quick search took me to Liz at Hoosier Homemade – a long time resident of my blog roll and the site to which I often turn for cupcake ideas. This recipe was EASY. I adjusted it slightly. The cookies I made were big – this recipe gave me 6 whoopie pies. However, if I were going to make it again (and I will – maybe even today!) – I would cut the size in half to come up with 12 pies. I was working fast to get these in the oven so that they could cool in time to make for our date, so I did not take any pictures of the process.

Heavenly Red Velvet Cake

Posted by Hallee on Nov 19, 2009 in Desserts, Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare, Recipes

Red velvet cake holds a very special place in my husband’s heart. It was the last birthday cake his mother made him just weeks before we went to be with the Lord. Knowing this, I have searched far and wide and manipulated countless recipes to create a superb red velvet cake. I believe that I have finally hit the nail straight on the head with this recipe.
