PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES – only 3 ingredients!

PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES – only 3 ingredients!

Oh how far I’ve come from my early stove top cooking days!  My treasured Omnia stove top oven has been with us from the beginning of our boat obsession…now heading into our sixth season.  I must admit some of my first attempts were a bit rough but hey, it’s boat life…camping on the water.  We don’t need fancy.   My previous effort at providing sweet treats without an oven onboard – cookie dough stuffed into baking cups.  Recipe here   It’s…

MASHED SWEET POTATO with RICH TANDOORI SAUCE

MASHED SWEET POTATO with RICH TANDOORI SAUCE

I’m the cuckoo bird of the recipe development world.  My recipes are for the most part those of what others have created and adapted to fit in with our simple spartan boat galley world.  I will always give credit to the originator when possible though. Every once in a blue moon however I do hit one out of the park all by myself.  This is one of those occasions.  After several weeks of trying out plant-based meal delivery I’ve gained…

APRIL ROUND-UP

APRIL ROUND-UP

It’s surprising to me sometimes what you folks are looking for when you search for Galley Kat recipes.  Sometimes if runs the line of special holidays as it did last month. Lots and lots of Irish/Saint Patrick’s Day hits.  And I shouldn’t be surprised at the delicious Easter Trifle because, well, it was Easter and it is a truly easy dessert. But why Batsaria received almost as many search hits as the trifle was a stunner.  Don’t get me wrong….

BANANA OAT MUFFINS

BANANA OAT MUFFINS

I’ve been trying to become better organized in the galley these days.  It’s far too easy for me to get side tracked by yet another tasty something or other to try out.  It’s why for a brief time I subscribed to home delivery meals…all nicely packaged with just enough for the two of us…no leftovers…so extra bits and pieces to be stored in the refrigerator either waiting to be used for another recipe or walking itself into the garbage at…

NOT-SO-NOODLEY TUNA CASSEROLE

NOT-SO-NOODLEY TUNA CASSEROLE

We came back from a recent visit to the doctor with orders for one of us (no names will be mentioned) to cut back on white potatoes, white bread, white rice and pasta.  A 25% cut back he said. So this Galley Kat got to searching through the recipe data base, the pantry and refrigerator to find options for tonight’s supper.  Well!!! Do I ever have a good one to share with you, my Peeps! I found half a cabbage…

FIG and CAMEMBERT GRILLED CHEESE with CRISPY MUSHROOM SALAD

FIG and CAMEMBERT GRILLED CHEESE with CRISPY MUSHROOM SALAD

I’m loving this sandwich/salad combo that was inspired by one of  our recent meal delivery recipes.  The sweet fig jam, ooy gooy creamy cheese and toasty crispy bread was a sensory delight.  Then you have the tangy/sweet-ish salad dressing over fresh greens.  But what drove it over the top was the addition of crispy mushrooms that have been tossed, then grilled in parmesan and bread crumbs.  Heavenly perfection. Just a few easy steps, beginning with slicing the mushrooms, then tossing…

EASY PRESERVED LEMONS

EASY PRESERVED LEMONS

Have you ever tried using preserved lemons in your cooking?  They add such a wonderful extra ‘something’ to a dish but sometimes they can be quite pricey to purchase.  I’ve made them myself with success (my recipe here) but they take several weeks to cure properly.  Not always practical.  Well, I now have a way for you to have them ready in about three hours of sitting time.  Make them in the morning.  Have them ready to spice up that…

CRANBERRY LIME MUFFINS

CRANBERRY LIME MUFFINS

So why am I still baking in a stove top oven when I have a perfectly good land galley oven to use you might ask?  I don’t honestly know, except that it’s so darned easy.  It doesn’t take any longer than a conventional oven.  Clean up is about the same amount of effort and I love the economy of not heating an entire appliance for a dozen little muffins. I guess it might still seem strange to you house bound ‘dirt…

PRESSURE COOKER ‘ROAST’ CHICKEN and BONE BROTH

PRESSURE COOKER ‘ROAST’ CHICKEN and BONE BROTH

I have a super easy and quick two for one recipe post for you today, my Galley Peeps.  In truth it’s actually three because I added my recipe for gravy mix which comes in handy if you don’t have real chicken stock on hand.  Now that we are off-season country dwellers, I have become very conscious of supporting local enterprises.  My latest find is ordering vegetables and meats every two weeks from a nearby farm.    They send a list…

SALMON and SWEET CORN STEW

SALMON and SWEET CORN STEW

 Having one of those days.  Don’t want to cook.  Don’t know what to cook even though I have a well planned database to choose from and a pantry and refrigerator fully stocked.  I just DON’T FEEL LIKE COOKING!!!  Let’s see what miracle I can pull from the cupboard.  Always conscious of a balanced meal…protein, vegetables and some carbohydrates…I find a can of salmon…I find a can of corn…I find some jasmine rice…I find a can of coconut milk.  Where’s my…
