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 […]

ROAD TRIP GRANOLA BARS

We’re road-tripping this week so I thought you might like me to share my favourite travelling snack.  In the past, I used to pack far too much food. Sandwiches, veggies and dips, cookies, juice and water, little tubs of yogurt…and by the end of the trip we would still have things left over. I’m gaining a little wisdom in my old-ish age and now I […]

MAKE AHEAD FREEZER OATMEAL COOKIES

Good day to you Galley folks.  You can thank my daughter and her current housing ‘condition’ for today’s recipe.  They have recently purchased a home that needs renovating and instead of continuing to live in their tiny apartment with two active monkeys they decided to move into their basement while contractors make the home liveable.  They created an ingenious set-up in the room that will […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
