BUCKWHEAT ZUCCHINI MUFFINS

BUCKWHEAT ZUCCHINI MUFFINS

I have far too many blog posts on the go and not yet published.  This isn’t like me as usually I am way ahead with several weeks of delicious recipes post dated.  Is it the country seaside wintery life that’s taking my attention, slowing my steps a little more, making me want to cocoon and curl up with a good book, leading me down that evil procrastination path?  Whatever it is I must snap out of it. No better way…

HONEY ROAST DUCK (a Captain Cooks creation)

HONEY ROAST DUCK (a Captain Cooks creation)

Technically this recipe doesn’t fit my simple boat recipe criteria.  Yes, it was simple but it does require an oven of which I have none onboard.  But….when my man says he wants to cook a duck and the results are so freakin’ delicious I felt I needed to share it with you all.  There is a possibility that it could be cooked in a similar fashion tented with foil on a barbecue but we haven’t tried that yet so conventional…

STOVE TOP ENGLISH MUFFINS

STOVE TOP ENGLISH MUFFINS

I’ve had this hanging around in my data base for ages and I now wonder why I waited SO long to try it.  Got the recipe from another boater who blogged about something or other (I honestly can’t remember what it was about…so long ago) and in the conversation he mentioned making English muffins.  You mean in your boat oven I asked?  Stove top was his answer.  Well, said I. Please share!  And he did and here I am well…

LOBSTER VOL au VENT with ORANGE COGNAC SAUCE

LOBSTER VOL au VENT with ORANGE COGNAC SAUCE

It’s lobster season here in our part of Nova Scotia and what a treat it is for us to be living just a few minutes walk from a fishermans’ wharf.  That’s right!  We can walk whenever we wish but the trick is, we have to be there when the boat comes in and before the refrigerated truck takes the catch of the  day away. Our first time we were a little too late.  Our second, we scored a sinkful of…

TIRAMISU

TIRAMISU

I posted this picture a few days ago on instagram while I was prepping for the first ever dinner guests in our new digs by the sea. I was honestly afraid I may have to pitch it out because I wasn’t able to find enough lady fingers and I’d already purchased most of the ingredients and started making some of the parts.  As much as I would like to think I’m organized I can get so scattered sometimes…not always…just sometimes…

WILD RICE and MUSHROOM SOUP (pressure cooker version)

WILD RICE and MUSHROOM SOUP (pressure cooker version)

Isn’t this the time of year for soups?  Belly warming, rich, flavourful soups.  And to be honest, when it comes to galley prep, I’m lazy.  That’s what’s so appealing about living with restrictions…both in what’s available and environment.  No one expects fancy pants elaborate meals when all you have to work with is a boat cooler and a one-burner alcohol-sometimes-with-electricity-fueled stove.  Some of the best and most memorable meals have been the ones that have been cooked in one pot…

EASY SLOW COOKER MAC ‘n CHEESE (a guest in my galley)

EASY SLOW COOKER MAC ‘n CHEESE (a guest in my galley)

Now that we’ve moved back to Nova Scotia my son Luke gets to visit us more often.  And he’s such a great helper, always asking  what he can do to assist.  One weekend he spent the time putting together some shelves so I could organize our wee place a bit better. Another time he spent the afternoon with Francois clearing the brush around Duck Pond, our newly discovered eco-system.  We knew there was a stream that ran along the side…

SAVOURY BAKED NOODLES (KUGEL)

SAVOURY BAKED NOODLES (KUGEL)

I love kugel, especially the savoury kind.  Well, in truth I love anything with pasta and cheese.  It’s the ultimate comfort food especially welcomed now that we are heading into some chilly days.  I call it my hibernation food. This next recipe was made to be a complete meal with spinach and mushrooms and lots of dairy for protein.  I baked it no-oven-galley-style in my stove top Omnia but for you land folks it easily transforms to a more traditional…

MEATY MEATLESS ‘MEAT’ LOAF

MEATY MEATLESS ‘MEAT’ LOAF

Welcome to another creation for your next Meatless Monday, Galley Peeps.  It’s full of tasty mushroom morsels and nutty toothy texture all densely packed into one savoury loaf. I had some leftover wild and brown rice that I had cooked in the pressure cooker the other day so threw that in for extra oomph. And now that we are back on land for the next few months I have a little more space to keep pots of fresh herbs so…
