Honey French Salad Dressing

Posted by Hallee on Nov 13, 2012 in Recipes, Salads, sauces & spreads

I love making my own salad dressing. I haven’t bought packaged dressing in a long time. This is one of my all time favorite dressings. The first time I made it, I ate salad at every opportunity just so that I could have this dressing. It is tangy with just the right flavoring. I love the garlic mixed with the honey.

Homemade Catsup

Posted by Hallee on Sep 7, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, Preserving, Recipes, sauces & spreads

When I get to working fast in the kitchen, I forget that often I should be taking pictures for posts for recipes. This is one of those occasions. I had a lot going on in my kitchen the day that I made this catsup, and I was finishing it up when I realized I should have been documenting the process. Consequently, I apologize, but I will tell you that this is an incredibly flavorful condiment. I will forever use it for our homemade catsup (or ketchup, as my spell check prefers!)

Hallee’s Tantalizing Traditional Turkey Gravy

Posted by Hallee on Nov 22, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare, Recipes, sauces & spreads

When my mom makes turkey gravy, she always makes giblet gravy (recipe to follow). It took me many years to learn how to make any other kind of gravy. Now that I make this recipe, it would be hard for me to say whether I prefer giblet gravy over this traditional gravy or not! It is really flavorful and the perfect compliment to the rest of your Thanksgiving feast.

Fresh Cranberry Sauce

Posted by Hallee on Nov 19, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare, Recipes, Salads, sauces & spreads, sides

I do not enjoy eating turkey without cranberry sauce. It’s just part of that whole dinner to me. Once I tasted cranberry sauce made with fresh cranberries, I just can’t imagine going back to the canned kind. This recipe is wonderful – the orange in it cuts the tartness of the berries perfectly.

Roux [roo]

A roux is a thickening agent made from some kind of fat with an equal portion of flour. You melt the fat, add the flour, then cook until the flour taste is removed.

Tip: How to Pasteurize an Egg

Posted by Hallee on Jan 23, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, kitchen & cooking tips

It has come to my attention that some folks are concerned about the use of raw egg yolk in my mayonnaise recipe. I tested this home pasteurization technique today to ensure that my mayonnaise recipe still works and I am happy to report that it works fine.

Favorite Turkey Salad Recipe

Posted by Hallee on Nov 27, 2009 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

One weekend before deployment, Gregg had a weekend pass and I was sick. He disappeared into the kitchen and came out with the most amazing sandwich. I’ve been trying to duplicate it ever since.

Whole Wheat Penne Pasta with Chicken & Veggies

Posted by Hallee on Oct 4, 2009 in entrees, Hallee's Galley, Italian, Recipes

I was hungry for something creamy and pasta-y with chicken and veggies, so I put “pasta with chicken and veggies” on the menu this week and made the recipe up on the fly. It turned out very nice.
