Hello all you Galley friends.  Soon it will be the beginning of the Lunar New Year.  Last year, was my year according to Chinese tradition….the Year of the Tiger…so fitting for this Galley Kat isn’t it?

When I first made this recipe, we were on the boat and I kind of just dumped everything into the pan, plunked the cheese on top and cooked it in my Omnia stove top oven.  It was delicious but not terribly pretty.  Notice how I tried to dress it up with a little basil? It did the trick as far as a healthy, easy and […]

It’s surprising to me sometimes what you folks are looking for when you search for Galley Kat recipes.  Sometimes if runs the line of special holidays as it did last month. Lots and lots of Irish/Saint Patrick’s Day hits.  And I shouldn’t be surprised at the delicious Easter Trifle because, well, it was Easter and it is a truly easy dessert. But why Batsaria received […]

To the ‘easy’  I should add versatile for this next recipe.  I first made them spread on parchement paper on a sheet pan in our land oven.  Using a cookie cutter made them the perfect size to top a toasted English muffin. You tried my recipe for those didn’t you?  No?  Well hop to it…recipe link here As I now believe almost anything cooked in […]

I love kugel, especially the savoury kind.  Well, in truth I love anything with pasta and cheese.  It’s the ultimate comfort food especially welcomed now that we are heading into some chilly days.  I call it my hibernation food. This next recipe was made to be a complete meal with spinach and mushrooms and lots of dairy for protein.  I baked it no-oven-galley-style in my […]

Chilly rainy days mean cooked breakfast aboard R.E.D.  I had some fresh greens, peppers and farm eggs just begging to be turned into something belly warming. The greens I used were a mix of baby kale and arugula which gave a more crispy result.  Small chopped spinach leaves work well too.   Choose your peppers wisely if using the Omnia stove top oven.  They should […]

This little breakfast treat was surprisingly easy.  I stumbled onto the idea while reading an article about the sous vide method of cooking and wondered why I couldn’t recreate these in my stove top Omnia oven.  The water bath method takes one hour of cooking time and since cooking fuel/electricity is at a premium on the boat I thought that surely I can cut that […]

We do love our fish.  Haven’t had a lot of luck catching the critters during our summers on the boat but we do dream someday of improving on this skill.  When we are lucky enough to get hold of fresh fish it’s a feast aboard.  With a little pretending tonight I created this Portuguese dish with some fresh cod found at our local fish market. […]

It’s surprising how little effort it takes to throw together something special for a Boxing Day breakfast or brunch.  With the help of some Christmas gnome magic and all the flavours that speak of the season this creamy concoction was ready in no time. For the purpose of boat galley cooking it was made in my stove top Omnia oven but in a conventional oven […]
