SIMPLE PEACH BREAD PUDDING

There’s nothing more satisfying than a rich, creamy, custardy bread pudding.  It’s like having dessert for breakfast. This was a product of using up some galley supplies.  The last of my farm eggs from happy chickens, some opened canned milk, aging whole grain bread (hard to believe this one slipped by my bread-lovin’ man) and canned peaches (yes, I know fresh are in season but […]

MUSHROOM TARRAGON LEMON PATÉ

I wanted to make an easy healthy appetizer for a recent docktails soirée but first I had to run it by my faithful taste tester.  I can always count on Francois to give a reasonably candid evaluation. Well, he loved it.  I meaned LOVED it! And the weirdest part was he thought it was creton, a typical French Canadian rillettes or terrine type of spread […]

DRAGON SAUCE

Got another good one for you Galley Peeps.  It’s one of those really versatile Asian-inspired sauces that work well with meats, seafood, fish, with pasta or rice and is far too easy to make and has evolved from many trials to my now ‘tried and true’ formula. Tonight I did the full meal deal and made it fresh,  then made some breaded chicken nuggets, braised […]

SUMMER VEGETABLE TIAN

I made this vegetarian dish in my little galley Omnia Stove Top Oven but it is traditionally made in a conventional oven.  And because I felt lazy today, it was hot and we were at anchor and it had been a very long day and I didn’t want a lot of washing up, I decided to sauté the onion and garlic directly in the Omnia […]

BEAN and SAUSAGE BREAKFAST BAKE

One thing I bring a lot of onboard for the season is my Bisquick clone mix.  It allows me to whip up scones, crepes etc with ease and it made a great topping for today’s breakfast. As I’m writing this I’m thinking it’s time to throw together some more biscuits to serve  with local strawberries.  But I digress.  On to the recipe at hand… Little teeny […]

EASY CHEESY NOODLE CASSEROLE

Quick and dirty is the name for tonight’s supper.  Where we are it’s chilly and we’re tired and hungry sailors.

BLUEBERRY MANGO SHORTCAKE

My sister  made shortcake biscuits for me years ago.  They were so moist, so fluffy, so good.  I haven’t made them in years because we rarely eat dessert but what a treat they were, biscuits cooked in my little stove top oven, fresh fruit drizzled with lime juice and maple syrup, cream whipped to soft peaks. The original recipe is made with Bisquick but I […]

THE PERFECT SALAD

 This salad was a progression to perfection.  I’m really liking the French way of first whisking the vinegrette directly in the salad bowl, then layering beginning with the least fragile ingredients and topping with the greens.  When it comes time to serve, just toss. The greens will have stayed separate from the vinegrette and not all wilty and soppy Perfect! THE PERFECT SALAD what you […]

GRILLED SALMON with EASY LIME BUTTER SAUCE

Cockpit dining doesn’t get much easier than this.  Remember that Quinoa Cabbage Salad (recipe here) that was so yummy?  Well, it was even better the next day.  And because it was Captain’s turn to grill, all I had to do was whip up the lime butter, pour some chilled wine and enjoy the view. GRILLED SALMON with EASY LIME BUTTER SAUCE what you will need […]
