The Best Bread & Butter Pickles – Ever

Posted by Hallee on Aug 1, 2013 in Hallee's Galley, Preserving, Snacks

Bread and butter pickles are an absolute favorite of mine. They’re kind of a savory/sweet combination that only a pickle can achieve. This recipe is straight from the Ball Book of Home Preserving. I consider Ball the the foremost expert on all things preserving and will almost always refer to them to answer any questions pertaining to preserving.

Cleaning with Vinegar

Posted by Hallee on Mar 21, 2012 in Housekeeping, Stewardship

I recently saw a blogger comment that her cleaning lady used vinegar to clean her floors, but it made her house smell like a pickle factory.

Homemade Glass Cleaner

Posted by Hallee on Jan 6, 2012 in Housekeeping

Yes. It’s really this simple. You’d think with all of the products on the market that it would be more complex, but it’s not.

I’m telling you, this was so easy that I cannot understand why I didn’t do this before.

Satisfying Crunchy Mixed Green Salad With Blue Cheese

Posted by Hallee on May 17, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, Recipes, Salads

This seems to make a huge salad, but when I ate it for lunch, it was a perfect portion. The crunch of the apples and the sweetness of the dried cranberries combined with the balsamic vinegar makes such a beautiful flavor combination. It is a delicious lunch.

Scrumptious Cinnamon Honey Scones with Raisins

Posted by Hallee on Apr 28, 2010 in Breads, Breakfast, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

I saw this recipe on GNOWFGLINS’ blog. This is a soaked wheat recipe – you soak the wheat overnight in an acid (in this case, apple cider vinegar) so that the phytic acid in the grain is broken down and your body is able to absorb all of the nutrients in the grain. I made this to take to Sunday School for breakfast. I worried that they would be heavy, dense, but they were amazing. They were so light, and melt-in-your-mouth. The original recipe is called “biscuits” but, they seemed more like a scone than a biscuit. They were SO good. My pictures are showing me making a double-batch to accommodate the Sunday School class.

Homemade Mayonnaise

Posted by Hallee on Sep 24, 2009 in Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sauces & spreads

I much prefer making my mayonnaise fresh at home. Obviously, it saves money, but the main advantage is in the taste. Home made is not loaded with chemicals and preservatives.

Ruby Red Raspberry Infused Vinegar

Posted by Hallee on Aug 12, 2009 in Gift Ideas, Hallee's Galley, Recipes, Salads, sauces & spreads

This light, healthful infused vinegar that goes very well on cranberry walnut salad, feta romaine salad, or even just on greens. The light vinegar brings out the sweetness of the raspberry flavor even more. And, it’s really super easy. Enjoy!
