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…

MAC ‘n CHEESE (pressure cooker version)

MAC ‘n CHEESE (pressure cooker version)

Hi there my galley friends.  Do I ever have an easy one for you to try today.  Well yes, mac and cheese if already a simple and go to standard  but what if I told you it could be ready in as little as ten minutes and at least half of that time is hands off cooking.  That’s right, three minutes in the pressure cooker and your creamy cheesy pot of comfort is three-quarters complete. I also have added a…

CINNAMON SWIRL CAKE

CINNAMON SWIRL CAKE

On a roll my Galley friends.  Two blog posts in two weeks.  I think my deep blue funk is now a thing of the past.  Spring weather has a lot to do with it I’m sure…plus we recently de-winterized our little land trawler, RED II and spent the weekend aboard.  We are in lock down because of a nasty out-break of COVID in our east coast province and my daughter wanted a place to space-out (read all about it here),…

YOGURT CAKE

YOGURT CAKE

Hi there my Galley Peeps.  I apologize for my absence. A blue funk has hovered over my head lately and I just haven’t felt like creating.  So unlike me, I know. But I’m back today with a rather fun little recipe for you.  I thought it would be useful for we who live in small spaces or those with limited water resources. It all begins with a small container of yogurt and the fun part is that you use that…

BOBBI’S EASY CORN BISCUITS

BOBBI’S EASY CORN BISCUITS

Recently one of my Galley Peeps emailed me to say she came across my BISQUICK CLONE mix and sent me this really REALLY easy biscuit recipe, making easy that much easier. It’s perfect for boat or RV/camper folks because all you need is some biscuit mix, a little melted butter and a can of creamed corn….things you would normally have on hand. That’s it! And my goodness are they ever good!  F couldn’t keep his hands off them.  I made a…

HOMEMADE CREAM-STYLE CORN

HOMEMADE CREAM-STYLE CORN

Hi there my Galley Friends.  I hope you are well and looking forward to some good spring weather as we are on the east coast.  Bit by bit things are opening up as the dreaded virus subsides. I still don’t go out much for retail ventures so I spend time in my land kitchen concocting ways of not using commercially prepared ingredients.  It’s a challenge for me and I really enjoy it. This latest recipe was the results of needing…
