CAMPING FOIL PACKS

Good day to you my Galley friends.  For your reading/culinary/camping/RVing/boating pleasure, I have a very easy dinner idea for you. These are a complete meal in one shot. Quick to throw together and the big bonus is so little clean up. Some foil. Tasty meatballs. Veggies and some seasoning. That’s it. Cooking time enough to make sure your meat is cooked through (160 deg), vegetables […]

BEET VEGGIE BURGERS

I thought you might be a bit tired of broccoli (my last two broccoli filled recipes can be found here for Broccoli Chicken Balls and here for Broccoli Potato Cakes) but right along the veggie theme this week is a very share-worthy recipe. Don’t you just love this time of year when fresh local produce is so readily available? The mixture came together really well and unlike […]

SMASHED CHEESE BURGERS

Oh, yeah, then you flip it, top with cheese and stack the other two burgers on top. Looking good isn’t it all steamy […]

CHICK PEA SWEET POTATO BURGERS

Meatless Monday today Galley Peeps and I’m not even missing the meat.  After all the celebrations and excesses of last month, something simple and healthy feels really good in our bellies. Smashed chickpeas and some rich grated sweet potatoes make the base for these delicious burgers. Even though tonight’s supper was served up like a traditional burger, these vegetarian patties are great on their own […]

VENISON BURGER with RICH MUSHROOM ONION GRAVY

It’s not very often that our world stops to focus on one really good meal. This was one of those occasions. Credit for these wonderfully flavoured burgers goes to friends, whose snagged the beast, dressed it and seasoned  it so well. The part I played was to cook it to a perfect medium rare then serve it up with a wonderful rich gravy.   RICH […]

PASTA FRITTERS with SRIRACHA MAYO

Is there any one like me who gets excited over leftover pasta? These types of meal really speak to my ‘economy of efforts’ boat mentality. It may take a bit of organizing and a little extra planning of your meals, but if you are going to cook up some pasta why not use the energy once? (effort, fuel or electricity, and that precious water)   […]

BULGAR SPINACH CHEESE BURGERS

There are so many great recipes out there for delicious vegetarian meals that I can’t remember the last time I actually cooked a meal with meat… fish, yes but no animal has been sacrificed in my galley for ages. Captain hasn’t complained either, although he doesn’t complain, ever. He once told me that if someone goes to the trouble of preparing a meal for him, […]
