JULY RECIPE ROUND-UP

JULY RECIPE ROUND-UP

So you’ve been entertaining this month have you?  Well, according to July stats you have.  Quite heavily in fact in the appetizer category.  We have too.  With visits from near and far and a spectacular neighbourhood house warming, I’ve been a very busy Galley Kat. Top of the list was this tasty recipe for zucchini and chicken bites.  I guess some of you must already be harvesting zucchini from your gardens.  Lucky you! Number two on your July faves was…

LAVENDER INFUSED LEMONADE

LAVENDER INFUSED LEMONADE

So, I tried something new yesterday.  Since the weather has been so hot and very dry I’ve been craving lemonade.  Fresh homemade lemonade.  And then my brother-in-law who  recently retired and with his wife, have become homesteaders creating a bee and lavender farm, talked about all the wonderful uses for lavender. We inherited a wonderfully diverse perennial garden from the previous owner of our little home by the sea with four thriving lavender plants, so I got busy harvesting a…

GENIUS NO COOK PASTA SAUCE

GENIUS NO COOK PASTA SAUCE

I’ve been heavy into easy cooking lately.  Now that we are back on the water I have absolutely no interest in complicated.  Some grilled meat or fish and a fresh salad is about as complex as it gets.  I came across this next recipe and it is just the best idea I’ve seen in a long while.  Made soley with tomatoes and butter and the best part…no cooking. The coolest part is I can make up a batch, pack it…

GRILLED STEAK SANDWICHES with BLUE CHEESE SLAW

GRILLED STEAK SANDWICHES with BLUE CHEESE SLAW

I wasn’t going to bother posting this.  Grilled steak isn’t news.  Nor is salad…although I couldn’t stop digging my fork into this one.  Blue cheese and crunchy cabbage…really addictive!   Then I realized just how great it is to have in your back pocket of summer recipes. It’s a make ahead kind of meal that you can pack up for a picnic, or take for a weekend camping adventure, or in your RV, or  keep in your boat cooler, or…

JUNE RECIPE ROUND-UP

JUNE RECIPE ROUND-UP

Since I’ve been posting these recipe round-ups it’s been fun watching the patterns of the most popular searches and boy oh boy you guys have been grilling and from what I can tell camping/RV’ing/boating up a storm.  It’s all about the barbecue and Omnia cooking this month.  Not to exclude you who are without the little stove-top miracle of an oven because you know I will always give you options for conventional land-based ovens but it’s obvious by the number…

CAPRESE CUPS

CAPRESE CUPS

I’ve been trying out some recipes for an upcoming guest visit and wanted to prepare something yummy for breakfast or brunch.  And foremost, something easy.  I don’t want to be spending my time with them cooking all day.  I like make ahead dishes but we don’t have a whole lot of room to stash pre-made meals. This recipe fits perfectly.  I can make it fresh with little effort with ingredients that I can have on hand.  Some cheese, tomatoes and…

EASY CREAMY SHRIMP with SPINACH

EASY CREAMY SHRIMP with SPINACH

I’m keeping it low carb and super easy again for tonight’s supper.  Low carb because we’re trying to lose some winter hibernation weight.   And easy because this is our first-of-the-season-dining-outdoors-meal and we’ve been trying to get on top of the gardening before being back on the water for the season. Sautéing the shrimp first in garlic imparts the best flavours to the overall dish.  Simply remove them after they reach the perfect pinkness (is pinkness even a real word?)……

QUICK CHICKEN MASALA with CAULIFLOWER RICE

QUICK CHICKEN MASALA with CAULIFLOWER RICE

I’m trying out some more low carb recipes this week and am loving this easy cauliflower rice.  You grind it in a food processor or use a hand grater, fry it up in a little oil and season.  Francois said that when he closed his eyes and tasted it, was almost like eating real rice.  One whole cauliflower is more than enough for the two of us so guess what? It freezes really well.  I put the extra into a…

MAY ROUND-UP

MAY ROUND-UP

My goodness this month went fast!   We’ve been so busy dividing our time amongst getting the boat ready for her spring splash, preparing for guests and tending to getting our new-to-us gardens cleaned up that it’s left little time for anything else. I did take the time though to put together a list of your favourite Galley Kat recipes for the month of May. Simply click on the caption of each image for the recipe link. First way at…

SALMON LOAF with DILL SAUCE

SALMON LOAF with DILL SAUCE

Since we’ve been doing so much outdoor work in the garden lately, I haven’t been keeping up with supplying our land galley.  Funny really how I still provision like we are still onboard.  Cans of this and that.  Lots of grains.   Plus more and more we’ve run into friends and some family members who are either cutting back on carbs or for health reasons can’t tolerate gluten.  So I’ve been compiling a few recipes from time to time to…
