HALIFAX DONAIR PLATTER (new recipe included)

I’m still on my comfort food kick here in my little land galley by the sea.  Did you check out my previous post with a composite of fave casseroles (CASSEROLES for COMFORT)? It’s a pleasure for me, as the creator and keeper of a blog, however small, to have perfect strangers visit from time to time and even more of a treat to have to […]

CASSEROLES for COMFORT

Casseroles are the ultimate in comfort food, especially during cold wintery semi-isolated times.  I’ve taken a wee break from recipe development the past few weeks to do some much needed self-care.  Qigong exercises, meditation are top of my daily routine and the other day I signed up for a session of online ballet lessons (an old lady version of course). While I work on getting […]

JENN’S BOOM BOOM SAUCE

Still on my Galley Basics kick, I looked through some Friends Faves submissions and found this recipe delight from Jenn.  I love the name…Boom Boom Sauce.  No idea where she came up with this name but it does come with a huge flavour explosion…especially if you make it a few hours, or even a day in advance so the ingredients have a chance to hang […]

CRISPY TOPPING

Hi there Galley folks.  As we head into the colder days, I’ve been taking stock of some basics in my little land kitchen.  I’m not a big fan of frequent shopping trips especially looking ahead to some nasty wintery days when I would much rather be curling up with a good book or binge watching some seasonal faves. Today’s recipe is one of those great […]

ROASTED CAULIFLOWER with HOMEMADE HUMMUS

Imagine, if you will, perfectly roasted and lightly spiced cauliflower nestled in a puddle of creamy lemony hummus.  Well right here is where imagination becomes reality. I was feeling inspired with my recent creation using Urfa Biber, my latest spice obsession and decided to continue this love story to throw together (almost literally) something plant-based for supper tonight. Here is the link and where I […]

HOT and SOUR SMOTHERED CABBAGE and RICE SOUP

Good day to you my Galley Friends.  So nice of you to drop by.  I have for you my next recipe using Smothered Cabbage and it’s really a no brainer.  Too easy..as in, I basically dumped everything into a pot, simmered a bit, then served a bowl or two of delicious, nicely spiced Asian-style soup for today’s supper.  What made it even easier is that […]

SONJA’S KALPUDDING (Swedish Meatloaf)

Thanks to Sonja, one of my Galley friends, I have this delicious submission for Kalpudding, a Swedish meatloaf dish which I am very happy to say, uses 1/3 of my Smothered Cabbage.  I do hope you prepared yourself for today’s recipe.  If not, get yourself a cabbage and start braising. This was the perfect recipe for using my amazing Omnia stove top oven…also of Swedish […]
