GALLEY PIZZA DOUGH

GALLEY PIZZA DOUGH

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 my son visits, he has to have his Momma pizza fix and I’m more than…

GALLEY BRIOCHE BREAD PUDDING

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 your baking pan.  Because I made mini brioche loaves, cutting the slices in half worked…

GALLEY BRIOCHE BREAD

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 of things to do preparing the garden for planting.  Every day I check the weather….

GALLEY CINNAMON ROLLS

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? If I don’t have a certain ingredient, what can I use to substitute?   Can…

FLORA’S FLOUR TORTILLAS

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 bits of bacon. The creamy tangy garlicky dressing.  The crunchy bits of croutons. The soft…

SHELLEY’S AMAZING BAGELS

SHELLEY’S AMAZING BAGELS

A friend sent me this recipe and honestly, I can’t get enough of them, and I can’t for the life of me imagine why I would ever buy bagels again. Far too easy…and by that I mean really easy.  I clocked myself from ingredient mixing to snapping photos. Thirty minutes folks. THIRTY! And that included twenty minute oven time. My only complaint is that the recipe makes just four…but that’s simply nit picking isn’t it?  The beauty of them too is…

MUFFULETTA – sandwich of the Cajun Gods

MUFFULETTA – sandwich of the Cajun Gods

Happy belated Mardi Gras to you my Galley Peeps.  I hadn’t planned on writing this one up for you guys because, well, it’s just a sandwich. The plan was for one more ‘bomb’ recipe (my last two JOAN’S TACO BOMBS and BREAKFAST BOMBS in case you missed them) but someone asked for the bread part of this recipe so I thought, why not?  It really was a very delicious, very full and meaty cheesy for ‘just’ a sandwich. Super simple in construction…bread…

JOAN’S VEGAN PITA BREAD

JOAN’S VEGAN PITA BREAD

There was something about this recipe that had my husband saying..’this is THE ONE’…and I’m not sure why. It’s not the vegan thing because my Frenchman is…well…French.. and loves anything bread-related no matter the ingredients.  I think it was the texture…smooth with a little chew and there is a new technique I’ve learned to make the pita separate in the centre, perfect for filling with my favourite  chickpea sandwich mix.  Or maybe it’s simply that I’m getting so much better…

EASY FLATBREAD (an update)

EASY FLATBREAD (an update)

I’ve been making my own pita bread for a number of years now because…well…because it’s too easy not to ((link here to my old recipe: Stove Top Pita). Recently though I  ran across an even easier method.  No yeast required with very little kneading and I’m liking the results even better.  Once the dough is mixed you need only 30 minutes of rest time before forming. It makes eight 8” rounds, Add a pinch or two of dried  herbs or…

BISCUIT MUFFIN ROLLS

BISCUIT MUFFIN ROLLS

What, you ask? Are they biscuits or are they rolls or are they muffins?  Well in truth they have a bit of an identity crisis.  They have a texture similar to dinner rolls but they have no yeast in them….and they are made in a muffin tin.  So I named them Biscuit Muffin Rolls. One bowl, one spoon, eight little muffin cups makes for a super easy clean-up too. Don’t you think? I played around with the ingredients, keeping the…
