GALLEY CREAM OF ‘WHATEVER’ SOUP

GALLEY CREAM OF ‘WHATEVER’ SOUP

Hi there my Galley folks. Are you still isolating these days or has life begun to open up for you?  I’m still practicing my distancing. I still haven’t stepped into a store since early March and have not minded it at all.  A lot of people are finding it difficult but this time away from ‘normal’ has made me more reflective and I’m using it as a reset point. Time to slow down the busy. Make life simple again. I’ve…

GALLEY PIZZA DOUGH

GALLEY PIZZA DOUGH

It’s time to talk pizza, my Galley Peeps! I’ve been posting pics of my creations for the past few months on social media because baking soothes my isolated soul and after several requests for my recipe, it’s time to write it up and share. We love pizza in our little home by the sea.  I mean LOVE pizza!  It’s become our Friday night special.  When my son visits, he has to have his Momma pizza fix and I’m more than…

GALLEY BRIOCHE BREAD PUDDING

GALLEY BRIOCHE BREAD PUDDING

I wasn’t quite sure how to categorize this.  Is bread pudding a dessert?  Is bread pudding a breakfast?  You decide. With this simple recipe it’s easy to transition from a tasty ‘breaky’ of yogurt and fresh fruit to dessert or afternoon tea with the addition of a dollop of whipped cream and fresh berries. Cut the bread slices according to how it will fit into your baking pan.  Because I made mini brioche loaves, cutting the slices in half worked…

GALLEY BRIOCHE BREAD

GALLEY BRIOCHE BREAD

I’m having a pile of fun in my land galley this week.  I can’t go anywhere anyway for obvious reasons because our province is still in it’s very early stages of loosening restrictions from the dreaded virus.  Hiking trails are open, as are parks.  We’re lucky to have a yard to be able enjoy fresh air and movement and it’s spring so there’s no shortage of things to do preparing the garden for planting.  Every day I check the weather….

GALLEY CINNAMON ROLLS

GALLEY CINNAMON ROLLS

How many of you have been feeling challenged lately?  You know what I mean? Limitations due to this global covid-19 pandemic. Restrictions placed on social contact. Restrictions placed on shopping. And when you do carefully venture to find even basics, certain items are either in short supply or plainly non-existant. I’m actually finding the challenges moderately exciting.  What can I do to limit possible exposure? If I don’t have a certain ingredient, what can I use to substitute?   Can…

MUFFULETTA MEAT BALLS

MUFFULETTA MEAT BALLS

Being the frugal Galley Kat that I am, I really really needed to use up the remains of my muffuletta sandwich ingredients ( MUFFULETTA – sandwich of the Cajun Gods)  Some deli meat.  Some tasty olive salad.  Some provolone cheese. And I just happened to have some extra ground chicken that I was using for a little Butter Chicken meatball affair that I’ve been working on. Then someone asked for my Muffuletta bread recipe so I typed that up and posted…

BRIT’S COCONUT DREAM CAKE

BRIT’S COCONUT DREAM CAKE

This cake is so rich. So sweet.  So very share-worthy. So what would possess me to make a whole cake when the very last thing I can do during this COVID crisis is share, I had to ask myself?  Oh well!  The next best thing I can do is eat the whole thing and share it’s yumminess with all of you virtually. I made a couple of substitutions to Brit’s original recipe. Coconut oil stood in for neutral cooking oil…

FLORA’S FLOUR TORTILLAS

FLORA’S FLOUR TORTILLAS

Several weeks ago before we had to be concerned about going out, I met up with an old friend. We shopped.  We talked. We sipped and dined.  The reason I’m bringing this up is what I ordered when we dined.  A simple chicken caesar wrap.  I came home thinking about that wrap, it was that good.  The tender morsels of chicken. The crispy lettuce and bits of bacon. The creamy tangy garlicky dressing.  The crunchy bits of croutons. The soft…

SHELLEY’S AMAZING BAGELS

SHELLEY’S AMAZING BAGELS

A friend sent me this recipe and honestly, I can’t get enough of them, and I can’t for the life of me imagine why I would ever buy bagels again. Far too easy…and by that I mean really easy.  I clocked myself from ingredient mixing to snapping photos. Thirty minutes folks. THIRTY! And that included twenty minute oven time. My only complaint is that the recipe makes just four…but that’s simply nit picking isn’t it?  The beauty of them too is…

MELINA’S HALUSKI

MELINA’S HALUSKI

When I received this recipe from Melina, I immediately thought comfort food.  It’s simple in ingredients and preparation and reminds me of something a Gramma would make.  And sure enough she mentioned it was a favourite recipe handed down from her Eastern-European Gramma to her Momma to her, a dish she falls back on time and time again.  Oh the memories that must evoke! So here I am at the beginning of spring, making what I would normally call a…
