YUMMY RYE BREAD (bread machine version)

YUMMY RYE BREAD (bread machine version)

Did I really miss posting last week?  So sorry Galley Peeps.  Time does fly when moving in, unpacking, and nesting takes over one’s life. We are almost settled though…at least the main living areas of our little RED by the Sea.  Boat parked outside, all nicely covered in her winter blanket, her veins flushed through with anti-freeze. I found  great recipe for you on allrecipes.com. I used my bread machine to keep this more on-the-boat-authentic but if you don’t have one…

LEMON GINGER MUFFINS

LEMON GINGER MUFFINS

I  finally took the time to use my new Omnia stove top oven insert and I must say that I love it!  Cleaning up in our little galley is always a challenge with the tiny sink and hand pump faucet.  We’ve made lots of improvements to our little chalet-on-the-water so that our summer live-aboard life is as comfortable as possible but I still dream of the day when I can wash both hands at once. Anyway, back to my Omnia.  I…

CLOUD BREAD – an experiment

CLOUD BREAD – an experiment

  Here I am playing with my food again.  This time it’s to find yet another way of providing my Frenchman with his bread fix. With no oven on our little boat, I rely heavily on my Omnia stove-top and occasionally to a lesser degree our back-of-the boat barbeque. Curious about all the ‘Cloud Bread’ recipes floating around, I thought I’d give it a try. Could a base of eggs and cream cheese with no flour really produce bread?  …

PEACH YOGURT MUFFINS

PEACH YOGURT MUFFINS

Today this post is brought to you by a guest in my Galley. My son, Luke, is visiting us for the week. He loves to help and is always onboard with offering his assistance whenever needed. This time he donned his fave apron to whip up a batch of some very tasty muffins. They were super simple – all the dry stuff, all the wet stuff, and some canned peaches. All made in our little Omnia stove top oven PEACH YOGURT…

CHIA LEMON MUFFINS

CHIA LEMON MUFFINS

Who doesn’t like a touch of something sweet now and again?  Add some extra nutritional elements and these little muffins become a very healthy go-to snack or dessert. Chia means ‘strength’ in Mayan so maybe consuming a muffin or two will make us stronger. Delicious eaten warm with a touch of butter or just as they are.  Perfect either way. CHIA LEMON MUFFINS 12 medium or 6 giant muffins what you will need 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour 3/4 cup…

CORN CHEDDAR MUFFINS

CORN CHEDDAR MUFFINS

Corn muffins are one of the most versatile and super easy treats to cook in my tiny galley.  When provisioning, I make up several individual food baggies of the dry ingredients with directions for throwing them together written on the outside. They’re very moist yet dense, just a touch of sweetness and the added cheddar gives that extra punch of protein. I love making them at the end of our day to serve with a bowl of soup or chili…

BANANA BREAD MUFFINS with MAPLE BACON COMPOUND BUTTER

BANANA BREAD MUFFINS with MAPLE BACON COMPOUND BUTTER

  Keeping simple galley methods in mind I transformed my favourite banana bread recipe into individual muffins baked in my Omnia Stove Top Oven.  A dozen perfect little hand treats resulted.  What made them even better was the addition of Maple Bacon Butter smeared over their already rich moist warm surface.  Sadly they never last very long once Captain gets wind of their existence but they are so easy to make that once I have another ripe banana or two…

SMASHED PEAS and WHITE BEANS on TOAST

SMASHED PEAS and WHITE BEANS on TOAST

I’m not a big bread eater like my Frenchman, so when I come across another great looking recipe for an open-faced sandwich (half the bread) I have to try it. My recent post of Avocado Toast with Sardines and Pickled Ginger was a big hit here is our little galley and this next Jamie Oliver-inpsired recipe has turned out to be just as good… The winning combination of peas, mint and lemon, with the added benefit of protein, iron and…
