SPICY SALMON BREAKFAST MUFFINS

SPICY SALMON BREAKFAST MUFFINS

Handheld breakfasts are a real bonus for  busy folks.  Especially important for she who mans the galley but would rather be out sailing.  Healthy, make ahead, this next recipe is perfect for a tasty on-the-go meal. I make them in the evening, clean up all the cooking mess, stash them away in the refrigerator so all we have to think about in the morning is making that first cup of coffee before heading out. They were perfect added to a car…

BANANA BREAD MUFFINS with MAPLE BACON COMPOUND BUTTER

BANANA BREAD MUFFINS with MAPLE BACON COMPOUND BUTTER

  Keeping simple galley methods in mind I transformed my favourite banana bread recipe into individual muffins baked in my Omnia Stove Top Oven.  A dozen perfect little hand treats resulted.  What made them even better was the addition of Maple Bacon Butter smeared over their already rich moist warm surface.  Sadly they never last very long once Captain gets wind of their existence but they are so easy to make that once I have another ripe banana or two…

FULL MEAL CHEESY CHICKEN DIP

FULL MEAL CHEESY CHICKEN DIP

I’ve really been missing our cockpit dinners, especially cheese fondu. It’s one of the easiest meals. So little preparation and minimal clean up. Imagine a warm starry evening, perfectly chilled white wine, a little dip of this and a sip of that, great conversation with friends. All the best components for boat entertaining. I took my basic cheese fondu recipe and added chicken leftover from last night’s barbecue, added some chopped fresh kale leaves to the rich creamy wine and…

IRISH WHISKEY GRILLED BABY BACK RIBS

IRISH WHISKEY GRILLED BABY BACK RIBS

This one is far too good not to share.  You could use your own fave barbecue sauce but if you don’t mind simmering up this amazing mixture of tangy spicy rich thick sauce, please do feel free to use over and over and over again.  At the beginning of each season I make up a batch and bring it onboard.  Two cups of this sauce goes a long way, keeps well refrigerated and is great slapped on not only ribs…

HOMEMADE WAXLESS CANDLE

HOMEMADE WAXLESS CANDLE

Hey there Galley Peeps. Today’s post is all about economy, tiny living, with a little off grid thrown into the mix. I came across a super idea for inexpensive candles using things you likely already have on hand. A candle on a boat, any open flame really, is something that has to have constant attention. Small spaces and perpetual motion mean taking extra care, but in the evening I love adding to the ambiance of a romantic cockpit meal with…

GALLEY KAT IRISH CREAM

GALLEY KAT IRISH CREAM

I’ve been a very very bad Kat!  Having an addictive personallity means there are some things I just don’t keep on hand. Sea Salt and Black Pepper Chips for one.  Another, which I refuse to buy any more is Irish Cream Liqueur.  I won’t mention any particular brand.  They are all the same and all evil.  Just thinking about them makes my belly ache…they are that rich, and that good! We have been invited to a Saint Patrick’s Day celebration…

SEARED VENISON LOIN and FRENCH ONION MUSHROOM SALAD

SEARED VENISON LOIN and FRENCH ONION MUSHROOM SALAD

I lied. Sorry. Yesterday I said you had seen the last of my French Onion Mushroom recipes but I lied. Here I am back again with another  meal for my week-long fix of French onions and mushrooms.  Love it so much I made another smaller batch to complete the week (recipe here).  Surprising just how versatile the recipe is. This doesn’t have to be restricted to wild game.  Any quick cooking tender piece of red meat will do. With the…
