MAKE AHEAD FREEZER OATMEAL COOKIES

Good day to you Galley folks.  You can thank my daughter and her current housing ‘condition’ for today’s recipe.  They have recently purchased a home that needs renovating and instead of continuing to live in their tiny apartment with two active monkeys they decided to move into their basement while contractors make the home liveable.  They created an ingenious set-up in the room that will […]

SWEET POTATO, SPINACH and TORTELLINI SKILLET

This easy recipe using frozen cheese tortellini pasta with a few handfuls of fresh spinach offers a delicious supper with a rather pretty presentaion.  Making it even simple as far […]

REUBEN SANDWICH

Hello there my galley friends.  I’d like to be able to reel you in by bragging about how healthy today’s recipe is but this is not the case (how’s that for negative marketing?)  Tasty…so very tasty, yes.  The ultimate in comfort food, yes.  But let’s get real.  Smoked meat or any processed meat is not the healthiest kid on the culinary block. We don’t indulge […]

IRISH BREAD PUDDING w WHISKEY CARAMEL SAUCE

Hello there Galley friends or should I say top of the mornin’ to you? I gave my guy a choice of what he would like for this year’s Saint Patrick’s Day treat.  A traditional cooked breakfast with some tasty Irish potato cakes or Irish bread pudding.  Silly me!  Of course he chose the dessert.  Lucky him!  Lucky you! I made a few changes to SIMPLE PEACH […]

MUJENDRA (Cypriot rice and lentils)

This week I’m in plant-based heaven again.  I was enjoying a weekend morning cocooning in bed doing catch-up on some reading while having the TV on for some background noise and what do I hear?…’leftovers’?  Got my attention it did. The recipe had a name very similar to something I made for you a while ago…MUJADDARA which is what it’s called in Middle Eastern culinary circles. […]

BAKED SPAGHETTI

You know by now how much I love leftovers.  On the boat it was something I planned for when creating meals.  We got into the habit of eating the leftovers for breakfast the next day…perfect start because our evening meal was typically the heaviest so those extra calories served us well for the sailing day ahead. Now that we are land-based for the winter months […]

CABBAGE CASSEROLE

Half a cabbage was resting in my refrigerator begging to be used.  What to make? Sub-zero temperatures and yet another storm in our midst and comforting cabbage casserole was born. I added some celery and carrot to the mix for extra nutrition, some creamed soup and Greek yogurt thrown in and supper was ready.  Use whatever creamed soup you wish.  Cream of celery is especially […]

CRAZY BREAD with CRAZY SAUCE

Who comes up with these names for recipes anyway? The ‘crazy’ part of this one is apparently a Little Caesars pizza joint thing.  No doubt an attention grabbing marketing ploy. What makes it ‘crazy’?  Could it be how crazy simple it is to make?  Crazy because of minimal  ingredients? Crazy because of how versatile it is? And, after calculating the nutritional information (see recipe card below), […]
