Sautéed Dandelion Greens

Posted by Hallee on Apr 24, 2013 in Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sides

I live in dandelion central. As soon as the weather turned warm, every yard in my neighborhood was so covered in dandelions that at a glance up or down the street, yellow was the first color that caught your eye. It was beautiful. In my own yard and in the flower garden I haven’t been able to work in yet, dandelions are growing at an amazing rate. So, I decided to try out this eating weeds thing.

These are SO good for you. I had no idea until I ran the nutritional analysis. Look at the bottom of the post here and see all of the amazing nutrition that you can find in a handful of weeds you can pick out of your own yard.

Freezing Sweet Peppers

Posted by Hallee on Oct 12, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, Preserving

My garden is exploding with sweet peppers now. I’m getting all different colors – orange, purple, green. I can’t pick them fast enough.

The easiest way I’ve found to preserve them is to simply freeze them. The problem is, though, that they’re full of liquid. So, if you sliced them and tossed them into a freezer bag, what you’ll end up with is a big frozen ball of peppers all stuck together.

Tasty Veggie Wraps

When I did the Daniel Fast last year, I added an extra restriction to myself in that I wouldn’t eat anything with leavening in it. Consequently, I lived on veggie wraps for lunches. They were so filling, and the avocados helped fill me up.

Green & Gold Casserole

Posted by Hallee on Jul 15, 2011 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sides

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.

Sweet Squash Squares

Posted by Hallee on Jul 14, 2011 in Desserts, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

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.

Zucchini Slaw

Posted by Hallee on Jul 13, 2011 in Daniel Fast, diet & fasting, Hallee's Galley, Leviticus, Recipes, Salads, sides

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.

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.

The Garden: Week 6

Posted by Hallee on Jun 16, 2011 in Gardening, Hallee's Galley

I no longer have a smaller garden, a corn garden, and a main garden – everything has been merged into one big “L” shaped garden.

The Garden: Week 2

Posted by Hallee on May 18, 2011 in Gardening, Hallee's Galley

This has been an off week for the garden. The highs every day have been about 50 degrees (last week the highs were about 85 degrees), and it has been raining. I think Tuesday night, the low was 43, and some part of my brain worried that it would drop to freezing. Kind of hard for this girl from Florida to take the third week of May.

The Dirty Dozen

Posted by Hallee on Apr 21, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, Housekeeping, Life

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) performed more than 43,000 tests for pesticides on various types of produce in thousands of samplings. Their computer analysis revealed that consumers could reduce their exposure to pesticides by almost 90 percent by avoiding just the most contaminated fruits and vegetables. They came up with a list of the most pesticide-laden produce varieties.
