JANA’S COATING MIX

JANA’S COATING MIX

Hello there galley friends. Today I have a recipe for you that is easy to throw together, make ahead  with what you have in your pantry and it’s versatile. Easy and uncomplicated is my day to day focus and I do love pantry diving whenever possible..especially with that dreaded virus still among us.  I still haven’t been in a grocery store since last March.  Truth! I don’t do a lot of self care stuff…you know…hair and nails…spa treatments.  I was…

CHICKPEA STEW with CORNBREAD DUMPLINGS

CHICKPEA STEW with CORNBREAD DUMPLINGS

As promised, here’s my recipe for delicious Chickpea Stew and Cornbread Dumplings.  For this quantity you can half my Corn Meal Muffin recipe which should give you room for eight or nine dumplings.  The results are very much like chicken pot pie without the chicken. Another time I did add some cooked chicken leftover from Christmas that I had stashed away in the freezer but if you decide to go ‘no face or mother’ to keep it purely vegetarian you…

CORN MUFFIN MIX – an update

CORN MUFFIN MIX – an update

Hi there folks.  I realize that I’ve been a wee bit absent lately.  I get that way sometimes, feeling my inspiration lacking but every time I start thinking about spring and what form it might take – specifically, picking up our little land trawler, RED II camper extrordinaire – I get motivated. Planning is my thing and at the moment I’m making lists of what we’ll need.  Making mood boards is an easy way to visualize the ‘look’. You should…

MONIQUE’S TARTIFLETTE

MONIQUE’S TARTIFLETTE

Hello there Galley Peeps.  Glad you stopped by today because, while going through some of my Friend’s Fave recipe submissions, I came across one from a French follower.  Written in French too. My French guy said he had never heard of a Tartiflette but his eyes lit up when I mentioned that it had stinky French cheese and doesn’t he love stinky French cheese. Reading through the ingredients and instructions, this dish with the unusual name began to take on…

2020’s TOP TEN RECIPE ROUND-UP

2020’s TOP TEN RECIPE ROUND-UP

Good day my faithful Galley Friends.  Well, it’s been quite a year hasn’t it?  I hope you have all managed to come through it healthy and safe.  Here in our little country home by the sea, it has been fairly easy…fairly.  As with most of you though we are going through COVID fatigue.  Holiday celebrations were not as in years past. Our families were separated to keep all safe and we complied…not happily mind you…but we did. I didn’t have…

UTTERLY AWESOME BROWNIE MIX

UTTERLY AWESOME BROWNIE MIX

Good day my Galley folks.  While this COVID thing has meant outing restrictions, I’ve focused my energies on simplifying my already simple life even further.  This combined with my dislike of commercial mixes had me coming up with a plan for a make-ahead treat. Today in my little land galley, I’m mixing up a batch of chocolatey brownies. Before I go any further, a word about mixes. I follow a lot of blogs of you folks on boats, in campers…

GINNY’S BUTTER CHICKEN MEATBALLS

GINNY’S BUTTER CHICKEN MEATBALLS

Digging into my stash of Friend’s Faves submissions, I found this delicious recipe  for easy butter chicken from Ginny, using ground chicken made into tender juicy little meatballs, floating in a buttery tasting tomato sauce.  The surprise was how buttery it all tasted with only a small amount of butter added at the end. This would be the perfect time to try making the meatballs, blenditarian style. Never heard of it? Well, it’s a great way to cut down on…

CRANBERRY SQUARES

CRANBERRY SQUARES

Hello folks!  How are things in your neck of the woods?  Here on the east coast nothing much has changed as the dreaded virus is still amongst us…although in smaller numbers than in the rest of the world.  We recently celebrated our Canadian Thanksgiving…still thankful for so many reasons in spite gathering restrictions. Since it was just the two of us, I dug out my favourite recipe for slow cooker turkey breast.  It’s a great way to get that traditional…

ZUCCHINI GNOCCHI with CREAMY SAUCE two ways

ZUCCHINI GNOCCHI with CREAMY SAUCE two ways

True confessions from the Galley.  I’ve never made gnocchi before.  Never eaten gnocchi before.  I’m not sure why exactly except I always had the impression that it was some sort of doughy tasteless pasta.  Boy, was I wrong! As I was making the gnocchi, I kept sampling the little ‘slugs’ as they rose to the top of the boiling water. Shameful I know, but I couldn’t believe how tasty they were.  Add this to the rich creamy corn sauce and…

LYNN’S APPLE DONUT CAKE

LYNN’S APPLE DONUT CAKE

In the mood for some Fall baking?  I hope so, because I have a good one for you this week. This recipe was sent in by one of my Galley Kat readers who thought it just might be perfect to try out in the Omnia stove top oven.  And she was right. Sometimes it’s hard to tell if there will be too much batter to fit into the baking pan, but this one was a perfect fit. When I licked…
