LAYERED VEGETABLE BAKE

LAYERED VEGETABLE BAKE

Happy Meatless Monday Galley Peeps. The following is a little simple economical vegetarian dish for tonight’s supper loaded with lots of rich layered veggies, some eggs, and milk. Even though I now have the Omnia silicone insert, I still prepare the pan with a good coating of my homemade pan release (recipe here)  Topped with freshly grated parmesan. Then baked in my stove top Omnia oven. When slightly cooled, slice serving portions and sprinkle with your fave hot sauce. It’s…

CRUSTLESS TOMATO CHICKEN QUICHE

CRUSTLESS TOMATO CHICKEN QUICHE

Since I didn’t blog as much as usual during our summer trip this year (beginning of our story here), I have a lot of recipes that I feel are still blog-worthy even though we are now back in our land galley for the next few months (insert sad face here). This next one is another ‘bits and pieces’ meal that used some leftover grilled chicken…   …a few veggies… …some eggs and cheese…   …and was cooked in my treasured…

BAKED AVOCADO EGGS

BAKED AVOCADO EGGS

  When we’re not heading out on the water early, I love putting together something a bit more special for our breakfast.  On days like this our first morning coffee spills over to a second, sometimes a third so that by the time we eat it’s more of a brunch thing.   Many years ago now when we were in the dating phase of our relationship, Francois used to put together some really awesome brunches.  One of the things I…

EGGS BENEDICT CASSEROLE

EGGS BENEDICT CASSEROLE

I think Eggs Benedict or any of its many versions is one of our favourite breakfast/brunch meals.  It does however mean several stages of prep and more than just a pan or two to put it together (toasting the muffins, grilling the ham, poaching the eggs, not to mention whipping up that perfect Hollandaise sauce). In celebration of tomorrow’s National Eggs Benedict Day, I threw together (almost literally too) an easier version with all the main components and pretty much…

DIETARY REBOOT – Days 5 and 6

DIETARY REBOOT – Days 5 and 6

We just finished up the sixth day of  our Whole 30 Challenge and I’m starting to get a  little tired of eggs. I know they are an easy to use and inexpensive protein but really, how many ways can we eat these before we have had enough? This was our view this frosty morning and all I could think was wouldn’t a bowl of steamy steel-cut oatmeal with a little cream and brown sugar be perfect? But I resisted and…

EASY CHEESY EGGS

EASY CHEESY EGGS

Our leisurely morning breakfast turned into a flavour explosion today. Try this next time you have a craving for fried eggs. Instead of butter or cooking oil to lubribate the pan, use grated Parmesan (or any other hard cheese like aged cheddar) as a base. I’ve tried Parm and Cheddar and LOVE them both. The oils from the cheese are released when heated, the egg is fried on top and that combination of creamy egg yolk and the bite of…

ASIAN DEVILLED EGGS

ASIAN DEVILLED EGGS

    Recently we invited friends for a wonderful end of season sail. ….the very talented lady and her partner… (Shaune Thompson Photography)     I put together a little brunch before departing which included some Gomashio coated boiled eggs. (Gomashio is pan seared sea salt with ground sesame seeds)     Gomashio adds that perfect touch to so many Asian-inspired dishes, that I make up a good sized batch to keep onboard. recipe link for Gomashio      …

FRIED EGGS with VINEGAR REDUCTION

FRIED EGGS with VINEGAR REDUCTION

The original idea for this recipe used a good quality red wine vinegar but I have this bottle of blood orange vinegar that I have been metering out drop by precious drop. It was a gift from friends, and I know although you don’t comment on this blog often Shaune and Joanne, that you are reading this. I’ve made this elixir last a long time haven’t I? So, on to the focus of this post… Swirling things around my fried…

OF CATS AND SCAMBIED EGGS

OF CATS AND SCAMBIED EGGS

No that isn’t a typo… it’s Scambied Eggs which always will be associated with my son-in-law’s cat Ollie… toothless, deaf, epileptic with so many more health problems, including serious inner ear issues that left her with a permanent lean to port side. …and yes, Ollie was a ‘she’. My daughter said scambied eggs was just something silly they used to say to her when they were making scrambled eggs because she’d give them a big gummy smile when they made…

#13 EGGS PIPÉRADE – 44 CLASSIC FRENCH MEALS YOU NEED TO TRY BEFORE YOU DIE

#13 EGGS PIPÉRADE – 44 CLASSIC FRENCH MEALS YOU NEED TO TRY BEFORE YOU DIE

Back to working on my list of 44 Classic French Meals (check out the rest starting here or type 44 in search field) I stopped for a while because the next group of recipes are more for cold weather eating. But this cool rainy day seems to call for something comforting, tasty, a little spicy and good for bread dipping. Our land neighbour who has a community garden, blessed us with some fresh veggies the other day. I have made…
