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 […]

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 […]

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? […]

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 […]

JIFFY CORNBREAD CLONE MIX

I’m not much for commercially prepared mixes but I do love the convenience of them. Part of my provisioning strategy is to prepare dry packets of our favourite ‘mixes’ so I can just add the liquids. Sometimes to save washing up, I even add the wet ingredients right in the bag. JIFFY CORNBREAD CLONE MIX 1 cup corn meal 1/2 cup all purpose flour 2 […]

UNIVERSAL MUFFIN MIX

This recipe for Universal Muffin Mix has been in my database for years. I can’t remember the original source but it seems to be the same one I see floating around various recipe sites.     Mixes are great to have on hand but when ever I can, I prefer creating my own (no nasty additives) As with my Bisquick clone recipe… and taco seasoning […]
