CHERRY COBBLER DUMP CAKE

CHERRY COBBLER DUMP CAKE

It has been a while since I made a dessert onboard R.E.D. but there was a can of bing cherries just begging to be used for something sweet. Some butter, sugar and flour… some seasonings that paired well with cherries… My trusty Omnia stove top oven… and Voilà! Dessert on a boat!   CHERRY COBBLER DUMP CAKE 2 cups flour 1 cup sugar 1-1/2 tsp baking powser 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 cup butter, melted 1 cup milk 1 tsp vanilla…

VEGAN PANNA COTTA

VEGAN PANNA COTTA

I made this dessert the other night for a dinner party… Panna Cotta with Blood Oranges in Grand Marnier Caramel Sauce… (let me know if you would like this recipe. It isn’t vegan but it is SO good.) It is really easy to make and takes so little time. Would I go to the bother of making the caramel sauce on the boat? …possibly. Would I likely keep a good supply of heavy cream onboard? …possibly. I tried several ways…

PUDDING IN A PINCH

PUDDING IN A PINCH

I bought a small package of chia seeds the other day at the market after reading so much about the health benefits…. Rich in manganese, phosphorous and calcium (makes my Kat bones stronger) Rich in fibre (we could all use more fibre) Packed with protein (have to create some new Meatless Monday recipes) Rich on Omega 3 (2 tbsp apparently my daily requirement) and my favourite… may help combat belly fat (so I can be that sleek lithe Galley Kat…

NATIONAL COOKIE DAY

NATIONAL COOKIE DAY

YAY! One of my favourite foods has its own day! I have been wanting to try this recipe for a couple of reasons …no baking required… and I needed an easy gluten-free-transportable-something-sweet-for-dessert to take to our winter cabin family get-together so am subbing the wheat flour with brown rice flour. Francois subscribes to the get-the-grandkids-hopped-up-on-sugar-then-send-them-home-plan so this should fit that criteria perfectly. SO much sugar! I would never make these onboard for many reasons (sailing is its own ‘high’ –…

APPLE CAKE with CARAMEL RUM SAUCE

APPLE CAKE with CARAMEL RUM SAUCE

Yet another of my Omnia Oven creations… …a little sweet treat for my Captain… …just a few ingredients… …mixed and packed into our little stove-top oven …while the cake was cooking I made the rum sauce… …I cheated a bit here – 2 burners used but you know I could have used one if I had wanted to… …be careful when adding the cream as the mixture bubbles up quite a bit… …in a mere 30 minutes I had this…
