SOLDIER COOKIES (anzac biscuits)

SOLDIER COOKIES (anzac biscuits)

Hi there Galley folks.  I thought you might like this great cookie recipe to add to your ‘easy stuff’ repertoire.  We have a couple of things happening this week that requires a sweet treat to have on hand…not that I need an occasion for sweet treats..haha! We’ve been invited to a friend’s place for coffee…always an occasion to bake up a little host gift….plus we’re off on a family cabin camping weekend.  Kids and grandkids alike will be expecting Gramma…

CINNAMON SWIRL CAKE

CINNAMON SWIRL CAKE

On a roll my Galley friends.  Two blog posts in two weeks.  I think my deep blue funk is now a thing of the past.  Spring weather has a lot to do with it I’m sure…plus we recently de-winterized our little land trawler, RED II and spent the weekend aboard.  We are in lock down because of a nasty out-break of COVID in our east coast province and my daughter wanted a place to space-out (read all about it here),…

YOGURT CAKE

YOGURT CAKE

Hi there my Galley Peeps.  I apologize for my absence. A blue funk has hovered over my head lately and I just haven’t felt like creating.  So unlike me, I know. But I’m back today with a rather fun little recipe for you.  I thought it would be useful for we who live in small spaces or those with limited water resources. It all begins with a small container of yogurt and the fun part is that you use that…

UTTERLY AWESOME BROWNIE MIX

UTTERLY AWESOME BROWNIE MIX

Good day my Galley folks.  While this COVID thing has meant outing restrictions, I’ve focused my energies on simplifying my already simple life even further.  This combined with my dislike of commercial mixes had me coming up with a plan for a make-ahead treat. Today in my little land galley, I’m mixing up a batch of chocolatey brownies. Before I go any further, a word about mixes. I follow a lot of blogs of you folks on boats, in campers…

CRANBERRY SQUARES

CRANBERRY SQUARES

Hello folks!  How are things in your neck of the woods?  Here on the east coast nothing much has changed as the dreaded virus is still amongst us…although in smaller numbers than in the rest of the world.  We recently celebrated our Canadian Thanksgiving…still thankful for so many reasons in spite gathering restrictions. Since it was just the two of us, I dug out my favourite recipe for slow cooker turkey breast.  It’s a great way to get that traditional…

LYNN’S APPLE DONUT CAKE

LYNN’S APPLE DONUT CAKE

In the mood for some Fall baking?  I hope so, because I have a good one for you this week. This recipe was sent in by one of my Galley Kat readers who thought it just might be perfect to try out in the Omnia stove top oven.  And she was right. Sometimes it’s hard to tell if there will be too much batter to fit into the baking pan, but this one was a perfect fit. When I licked…

GALLEY CAKE MIX

GALLEY CAKE MIX

Continuing on with simplifying my life in the kitchen/galley, I have a super fun recipe for you this week. Those who have been following along for a while, know how much I dislike commercial preparations, preferring instead to make my own whenever possible and practical. Growing up in a small farming community with a father who always preached ‘the closer to nature, the better’ and in a time when convenience foods were just becoming popular, we ate mostly locally grown…

BRIT’S COCONUT DREAM CAKE

BRIT’S COCONUT DREAM CAKE

This cake is so rich. So sweet.  So very share-worthy. So what would possess me to make a whole cake when the very last thing I can do during this COVID crisis is share, I had to ask myself?  Oh well!  The next best thing I can do is eat the whole thing and share it’s yumminess with all of you virtually. I made a couple of substitutions to Brit’s original recipe. Coconut oil stood in for neutral cooking oil…

IRISH ROUND-UP + bonus recipe

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Happy March to you all, Galley Peeps.  For most of us in the northern parts of the world it’s a month we all look forward to, regardless if we’ve had our last snow fall or not.  We know that gradually those dark winter days will turn into days that are longer and longer, warmer and warmer. Several birthdays to celebrate including my own this month…I try to pretend it doesn’t exist but it seems to…

JUDITH’S AUSSIE BITES (with product review)

JUDITH’S AUSSIE BITES (with product review)

This feels like a celebration and I have been saving today’s post for just this special occasion.  Omnia…you know those genius stove top oven folks?…well, they sent me one of their new products to try out.  The Muffin Ring…I’ve just finished using it for the first time and I absolutely LOVE it! The design is really very smart.  Silicone construction, which makes clean up a breeze, and the six muffin wells collapse which allow for easy storage inside the baking…
