SONJA’S KALPUDDING (Swedish Meatloaf)

SONJA’S KALPUDDING (Swedish Meatloaf)

Thanks to Sonja, one of my Galley friends, I have this delicious submission for Kalpudding, a Swedish meatloaf dish which I am very happy to say, uses 1/3 of my Smothered Cabbage.  I do hope you prepared yourself for today’s recipe.  If not, get yourself a cabbage and start braising. This was the perfect recipe for using my amazing Omnia stove top oven…also of Swedish origin.  It can however be cooked in a traditional  land oven but with the Omnia,…

SMOTHERED CABBAGE

SMOTHERED CABBAGE

Hi there all you Galley Folks.  Fall is definitely in the air these days.  It’s dark when I wake in the morning, I now have to put on my slippers when getting out of bed (which is a hard transition for this barefoot gal) and a couple of days I have even started up our little fireplace just to take the chill off the air.  My daughter and family have now moved back to their place in the city for…

BLUEBERRY CHEESE TARTLETS

BLUEBERRY CHEESE TARTLETS

Hello to you my Galley Friends. Here’s my situation.  I’ve been invited to a friend’s place for bison burgers…a friend from Alberta who is a consummate  carnivore.  A bit of back story…we treated him a while ago to some water buffalo burgers (I made Juicy Lucys) and he wanted to return the favour.  I offered to bring a side dish.  Offer accepted.  Then I thought maybe I could bring some dessert too so I offered peach pie because, thanks to…

CAMPING CASSOULET

CAMPING CASSOULET

A long time ago I ran across an article entitled ‘44 Classic French Meals You Need to Try Before You Die’ so I jumped right in to tackle the list, modifying each one for easier boat galley cooking. Please feel free to scroll through what I was able to accomplish aboard our little 26 foot sailboat with a one-burner alcohol burning stove, a hand pump sink and precious little counter space. You can find them here: 44 Classic French Meals….

DIANNE’S MARINATED GRILLED LEMON CHICKEN

DIANNE’S MARINATED GRILLED LEMON CHICKEN

Hello there my Galley Folks.  Nice of you to drop by today.  During a recent camping trip I scored this awesomely delicious recipe from a family friend.  She brought some grilled chicken as her contribution to our shared meal one night and it was so good and so juicy.  The trick she said was a good long marinade time.  She had prepared it ahead, brought it chilled and served it with a crisp salad, making it the perfect addition to…

HAMBURGER HELPER MIX

HAMBURGER HELPER MIX

Comfort food in a jar is what F calls this. It was a rather chilly rainy time in the camper.  We had to fire up the heater to take all the humidity from the air it was so damp.  The day was spent mostly indoors….that day I made my Soldier Cookies, remember? Well, I had a little two-cup jar of Hamburger Helper mix that I made up a while ago just for such an occasion. Within minutes we had dinner…

SOLDIER COOKIES (anzac biscuits)

SOLDIER COOKIES (anzac biscuits)

Hi there Galley folks.  I thought you might like this great cookie recipe to add to your ‘easy stuff’ repertoire.  We have a couple of things happening this week that requires a sweet treat to have on hand…not that I need an occasion for sweet treats..haha! We’ve been invited to a friend’s place for coffee…always an occasion to bake up a little host gift….plus we’re off on a family cabin camping weekend.  Kids and grandkids alike will be expecting Gramma…

HOMEMADE SAUSAGES (meatless)

HOMEMADE SAUSAGES (meatless)

Rainy day in the camper so the perfect time for indoor games.  I’ve been wanting to try out this recipe for vegan sausages…a bit more effort and time than I would usually take….so why not today?  And I’m doing it off-grid-ish. The original recipe requires a food processor so am using my little hand powered processor.  Takes up so little space.  Not a lot of cleaning up either. A small can of pinto beans was the main ingredient. Some ground…

FRUIT COBBLER – with make-ahead topping

FRUIT COBBLER – with make-ahead topping

Hi there my Galley Friends. I have a fun trick for you today that will make your nomadic-tiny-living-rv’ing-camping-off-grid existence so much easier. Now if I described this as dessert from a can, a jar or a bag, what would you think? EEW right? But that’s what it is really. I used to make up little zip baggies of the topping and bring it with us on our boating trips. They take up so little room and keep well.  Small tins…

JANA’S COATING MIX

JANA’S COATING MIX

Now that we are ‘almost’ into summer camping I’ve been putting together some easy cooking options for taking on the road.  This recipe came from a Friend’s Fave submission and it makes the perfect addition to grilling season. I mixed a small mason jar full to store in our camper pantry and cooked up some very tasty chicken today.  So far I’ve tried it with fish (oh my…coat, flip and done to perfection in minutes), pork chops, and even used…
