ZUCCHINI BREAD

We have an over-abundance of zucchini in our garden.  As usual we seriously under-estimated production.  There are only three plants this year but they are producing like rabbits.  I shouldn’t complain though because zucchini is one of those veggies that can be used in so many ways.  Slice, dice, shred and spiral them for casseroles, salads, baked goods. The recipe I have for you today […]

CRAZY BREAD with CRAZY SAUCE

Who comes up with these names for recipes anyway? The ‘crazy’ part of this one is apparently a Little Caesars pizza joint thing.  No doubt an attention grabbing marketing ploy. What makes it ‘crazy’?  Could it be how crazy simple it is to make?  Crazy because of minimal  ingredients? Crazy because of how versatile it is? And, after calculating the nutritional information (see recipe card below), […]

BOBBI’S EASY CORN BISCUITS

Recently one of my Galley Peeps emailed me to say she came across my BISQUICK CLONE mix and sent me this really REALLY easy biscuit recipe, making easy that much easier. It’s perfect for boat or RV/camper folks because all you need is some biscuit mix, a little melted butter and a can of creamed corn….things you would normally have on hand. That’s it! And my […]

CHICKPEA STEW with CORNBREAD DUMPLINGS

As promised, here’s my recipe for delicious Chickpea Stew and Cornbread Dumplings.  For this quantity you can half my Corn Meal Muffin recipe which should give you room for eight or nine dumplings.  The results are very much like chicken pot pie without the chicken. Another time I did add some cooked chicken leftover from Christmas that I had stashed away in the freezer but […]

CORN MUFFIN MIX – an update

Hi there folks.  I realize that I’ve been a wee bit absent lately.  I get that way sometimes, feeling my inspiration lacking but every time I start thinking about spring and what form it might take – specifically, picking up our little land trawler, RED II camper extrordinaire – I get motivated. Planning is my thing and at the moment I’m making lists of what […]

It’s time to talk pizza, my Galley Peeps! I’ve been posting pics of my creations for the past few months on social media because baking soothes my isolated soul and after several requests for my recipe, it’s time to write it up and share. We love pizza in our little home by the sea.  I mean LOVE pizza!  It’s become our Friday night special.  When […]

GALLEY BRIOCHE BREAD PUDDING

I wasn’t quite sure how to categorize this.  Is bread pudding a dessert?  Is bread pudding a breakfast?  You decide. With this simple recipe it’s easy to transition from a tasty ‘breaky’ of yogurt and fresh fruit to dessert or afternoon tea with the addition of a dollop of whipped cream and fresh berries. Cut the bread slices according to how it will fit into […]

GALLEY BRIOCHE BREAD

I’m having a pile of fun in my land galley this week.  I can’t go anywhere anyway for obvious reasons because our province is still in it’s very early stages of loosening restrictions from the dreaded virus.  Hiking trails are open, as are parks.  We’re lucky to have a yard to be able enjoy fresh air and movement and it’s spring so there’s no shortage […]

GALLEY CINNAMON ROLLS

How many of you have been feeling challenged lately?  You know what I mean? Limitations due to this global covid-19 pandemic. Restrictions placed on social contact. Restrictions placed on shopping. And when you do carefully venture to find even basics, certain items are either in short supply or plainly non-existant. I’m actually finding the challenges moderately exciting.  What can I do to limit possible exposure? […]

FLORA’S FLOUR TORTILLAS

Several weeks ago before we had to be concerned about going out, I met up with an old friend. We shopped.  We talked. We sipped and dined.  The reason I’m bringing this up is what I ordered when we dined.  A simple chicken caesar wrap.  I came home thinking about that wrap, it was that good.  The tender morsels of chicken. The crispy lettuce and […]
