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 […]

BISCUIT MUFFIN ROLLS

What, you ask? Are they biscuits or are they rolls or are they muffins?  Well in truth they have a bit of an identity crisis.  They have a texture similar to dinner rolls but they have no yeast in them….and they are made in a muffin tin.  So I named them Biscuit Muffin Rolls. One bowl, one spoon, eight little muffin cups makes for a […]

RHUBARB MUFFINS

Since the overwhleming success of the Rhubarb Cocktail (find the recipe here.  If you haven’t already tried it…you MUST), I’ve been in love with the rhubarb/lime/ginger combo.  So I took one of my favourite Galley Kat muffin recipes Lemon Ginger Muffins (recipe here) and transformed it into the ideal tea-time treat.  The perfect combination of tart rhubarb, a hint of lime and the bite of ginger. […]

BANANA OAT MUFFINS

I’ve been trying to become better organized in the galley these days.  It’s far too easy for me to get side tracked by yet another tasty something or other to try out.  It’s why for a brief time I subscribed to home delivery meals…all nicely packaged with just enough for the two of us…no leftovers…so extra bits and pieces to be stored in the refrigerator […]

CRANBERRY LIME MUFFINS

So why am I still baking in a stove top oven when I have a perfectly good land galley oven to use you might ask?  I don’t honestly know, except that it’s so darned easy.  It doesn’t take any longer than a conventional oven.  Clean up is about the same amount of effort and I love the economy of not heating an entire appliance for […]

BUCKWHEAT ZUCCHINI MUFFINS

I have far too many blog posts on the go and not yet published.  This isn’t like me as usually I am way ahead with several weeks of delicious recipes post dated.  Is it the country seaside wintery life that’s taking my attention, slowing my steps a little more, making me want to cocoon and curl up with a good book, leading me down that […]

STOVE TOP ENGLISH MUFFINS

I’ve had this hanging around in my data base for ages and I now wonder why I waited SO long to try it.  Got the recipe from another boater who blogged about something or other (I honestly can’t remember what it was about…so long ago) and in the conversation he mentioned making English muffins.  You mean in your boat oven I asked?  Stove top was […]

POTATO LATKE MUFFINS

I was so pleased with the results of my little potato stacks (recipe here), that I decided to try another potato side dish.  Potato Latkes are one of my all time favourites, especially smothered in rich sour cream or plain Greek yogurt.  Years ago while watching the kids’ show Mr. Dress-up (anyone remember him?) with my son, he showed how to make these really easy […]

DOUBLE CHOCOLATE ZUCCHINI MUFFINS with SWEET POTATO CHOCOLATE FROSTING

You read that right – Sweet Potato Frosting and it was spoon-lickin’ yummy.  And just two ingredients.  Where else can you marry rich dark chocolate and a vegetable and call it healthy.  The muffins also were packed with veggies…and rich dark chocolate…and so moist! Super easy to throw together once all the ingredients were gathered.  Dry ingredients all stirred or sifted to make sure there […]

LEMON GINGER MUFFINS

I  finally took the time to use my new Omnia stove top oven insert and I must say that I love it!  Cleaning up in our little galley is always a challenge with the tiny sink and hand pump faucet.  We’ve made lots of improvements to our little chalet-on-the-water so that our summer live-aboard life is as comfortable as possible but I still dream of the […]
