RUBY’S CINNAMON MONKEY BREAD

RUBY’S CINNAMON MONKEY BREAD

This is the recipe that started me off on a new tack when a friend found out I had a cooking blog and that I focused on easy to make, minimal boat-friendly dishes….and that onboard we are without a conventional oven.  She gave me this recipe of hers to try out to see if it would be appropriate to cook in my Omnia stove top oven.  The answer, a resounding YES!…and a new Galley Kat category was created: Friend’s Faves….

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…

OLIVIA’S MAKE AHEAD PASTA BAKE

As promised, here is a very tasty casserole-type dish recipe  sent in by one of my Galley Peeps, Olivia.  It uses one can of commercial condensed soup or why not try my homemade version (GALLEY CREAM OF ‘WHATEVER’ SOUP ). One bowl and a baking dish is all you need and what makes it super easy is no boiling the pasta ahead of time.  You put the prepared casserole to bed in the refrigerator today and tomorrow you bake it…

GALLEY CREAM OF ‘WHATEVER’ SOUP

Hi there my Galley folks. Are you still isolating these days or has life begun to open up for you?  I’m still practicing my distancing. I still haven’t stepped into a store since early March and have not minded it at all.  A lot of people are finding it difficult but this time away from ‘normal’ has made me more reflective and I’m using it as a reset point. Time to slow down the busy. Make life simple again. I’ve…

GALLEY PIZZA DOUGH

It’s time to talk pizza, my Galley Peeps! I’ve been posting pics of my creations for the past few months on social media because baking soothes my isolated soul and after several requests for my recipe, it’s time to write it up and share.

GALLEY BRIOCHE BREAD PUDDING

GALLEY BRIOCHE BREAD PUDDING

I wasn’t quite sure how to categorize this.  Is bread pudding a dessert?  Is bread pudding a breakfast?  You decide. With this simple recipe it’s easy to transition from a tasty ‘breaky’ of yogurt and fresh fruit to dessert or afternoon tea with the addition of a dollop of whipped cream and fresh berries. Cut the bread slices according to how it will fit into your baking pan.  Because I made mini brioche loaves, cutting the slices in half worked…

GALLEY CINNAMON ROLLS

GALLEY CINNAMON ROLLS

How many of you have been feeling challenged lately?  You know what I mean? Limitations due to this global covid-19 pandemic. Restrictions placed on social contact. Restrictions placed on shopping. And when you do carefully venture to find even basics, certain items are either in short supply or plainly non-existant. I’m actually finding the challenges moderately exciting.  What can I do to limit possible exposure? If I don’t have a certain ingredient, what can I use to substitute?   Can…

SALISBURY STEAK (SLOW COOKER)

SALISBURY STEAK (SLOW COOKER)

This was one of those ‘show stopper’ dinners.  Not at all a gourmet-ish type of meal, made with lowly ground beef and a simple gravy, yet somehow when we sat down to dine and took that first bite….wow!  The flavour of the gravy was amazing, the beef patties were surprisingly tender and that I had walked away four hours earlier to do other things made it such a treat. Instead of using a packaged gravy mix, I made my own….
