Whole Wheat Vanilla Wafers

Posted by Hallee on Mar 11, 2010 in Desserts, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

I found this recipe on Heavenly Homemaker’s site. The only thing that I do differently is to use vanilla beans instead of vanilla extract. We have grown to love this recipe! Gregg has always loved a snack of vanilla wafers and peanut butter. I love that I found such a healthy recipe. I send a batch or two with every care package to Gregg, and use them when I make Banana Pudding and Mascarpone Cheesecake with Almond Crust.

Traditional Southern New Year Menu

Posted by Hallee on Jan 1, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare, menus & menu planning

Our family always enjoys a traditional New Year’s Day menu. That is: Black Eyed Peas, Turnip Greens, and Cornbread.

I’ve never really researched the tradition, just accepted it as what “people do”. So, last week while I planned on writing this post, I discovered this fascinating information on Wikipedia:

Beautiful Black Eyed Peas with Smoked Turkey Leg

Posted by Hallee on Jan 1, 2010 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare, Recipes

Our family always eats black eyed peas for New Year’s Day dinner. Because we don’t eat pork, we use a smoked turkey leg. It is a WONDERFUL substitution.

Southern Fried Chicken

Posted by Hallee on Sep 17, 2009 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

A favorite of my family’s. I love to pull out two cast iron skillets and fry two full birds. They inhale this dish, especially when served with buttermilk biscuits, mashed potatoes, and gravy.

Ma-Maw Lucille’s Buttermilk Biscuits

Posted by Hallee on Aug 28, 2009 in Breads, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

Gregg’s great grandmother could whip these out by the dozen in about 20 minutes. They are the world’s best buscuit. I use a trans-fat free vegetable shortening.
