Smarties Airplanes

Posted by Hallee on Feb 13, 2013 in Gift Ideas, Parenting, Raising boys

When I asked Scott what kind of Valentine he wanted for his class party this year, he said he wanted to make a Valentine. I was so happy about that, because I’m all about homemade when I can.

Because I’m making Valentine’s for boys, and not girls, I had a bit of a challenge. So many of the crafts are very feminine – and that just wouldn’t be as much fun for them. I settled on a Smartie Airplane.

Double Decker Valentine Cookies

Posted by Hallee on Feb 13, 2013 in Desserts, Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare

Every year, I make Valentine’s cookies for gifts for my kids’ teachers (except Kaylee — apparently when you’re in high school, it’s not “cool” to give your teachers cookies – heh). One of the cookies going into the basket this this year, is a a double-decker cookie.

Love: The Perfect Gift for Valentine’s Day — 25% Off!

Posted by Hallee on Feb 11, 2013 in Writing

What better gift to give – or receive – than love? In my Jewel Trilogy, three half-sisters, Robin, Maxine, and Sarah, share one nightmarish past. With the world and the scars of the past against them, can the three of them find love and learn to live a life of faith? If you live in the States and contact me today or tomorrow, I can get you any (or all) of my love stories by Thursday. These books tell beautiful stories of romantic love and the love of God, and how both loves can transcend even the worst of circumstances.

Posted by Hallee on Feb 13, 2012 in Hallee's Galley, menus & menu planning

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of February 13th.

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.

Valentine’s Day Dinner for Two & A Story of Enduring Love

Posted by Hallee on Feb 14, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare, Life, Marriage, menus & menu planning

While all this was going on, a woman got out of the passenger’s seat of the car, opened the trunk, removed a walker, and started slowly hobbling her way into the restaurant. The doctor ordered and the waitress came and went while this woman inch by inch made it to the table.

Sweetheart Steak for Two

Posted by Hallee on Feb 14, 2011 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

A “Sweetheart Steak” is a rib-eye steak specially cut to resemble a heart. There is a membrane running down the middle of it that separates the two steaks. It is a tender, beautiful cut of meat, and just fun enough to be a perfect main course for a Valentine’s Day dinner.

Valentine’s Day Treats for School

Posted by Hallee on Feb 8, 2011 in Gift Ideas, Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare

These treats were made for Kaylee’s 4th grade teachers and school administrators — so, 3 years ago. They weren’t designed to offer any kind of tutorial in how to do them, so I apologize for that, but they give you an idea of how easy it is to put together something personal, something special for those people in your life whom you want to gift with Valentines.

Menu Monday 07 FEB 11

Posted by Hallee on Feb 7, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, menus & menu planning

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of February 7th. As far as desserts go, I have several Valentine’s Bouquets to make this week, so we will be making quite a few batches of Traditional Sugar Cookies.

I am going into week 2 of a 16-week personal fitness challenge, which will include what I eat and when I eat it, and will involve me working out and running daily. I’m not going to do a lot about it here. My husband, Gregg, is starting up a blog about his personal journey with fitness and will leave all of that kind of blogging to him. There will be times that the kids eat something different from me (for instance, I don’t expect them to want tuna in their scrambled eggs). In those instances, I’ll have two meals listed – one for me and one for them.
