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…

EASY BREAKFAST SANDWICH

EASY BREAKFAST SANDWICH

To the ‘easy’  I should add versatile for this next recipe.  I first made them spread on parchement paper on a sheet pan in our land oven.  Using a cookie cutter made them the perfect size to top a toasted English muffin. You tried my recipe for those didn’t you?  No?  Well hop to it…recipe link here As I now believe almost anything cooked in a conventional oven is possible in the Omnia Stove Top oven, why couldn’t these?  So…

HALIFAX DONAIR PIZZA

HALIFAX DONAIR PIZZA

The trouble with setting goals is that you’re constantly working toward what you used to want.” According to Sarah Manguso author of 300 Arguments.  No wonder my goal-setting isn’t working out for me these days.
