BAKED SPAGHETTI

You know by now how much I love leftovers.  On the boat it was something I planned for when creating meals.  We got into the habit of eating the leftovers for breakfast the next day…perfect start because our evening meal was typically the heaviest so those extra calories served us well for the sailing day ahead. Now that we are land-based for the winter months […]

HOT and SOUR SMOTHERED CABBAGE and RICE SOUP

Good day to you my Galley Friends.  So nice of you to drop by.  I have for you my next recipe using Smothered Cabbage and it’s really a no brainer.  Too easy..as in, I basically dumped everything into a pot, simmered a bit, then served a bowl or two of delicious, nicely spiced Asian-style soup for today’s supper.  What made it even easier is that […]

SONJA’S KALPUDDING (Swedish Meatloaf)

Thanks to Sonja, one of my Galley friends, I have this delicious submission for Kalpudding, a Swedish meatloaf dish which I am very happy to say, uses 1/3 of my Smothered Cabbage.  I do hope you prepared yourself for today’s recipe.  If not, get yourself a cabbage and start braising. This was the perfect recipe for using my amazing Omnia stove top oven…also of Swedish […]

POTATO CAULIFLOWER CURRY

My daughter invited us to dine with her a while ago and made the most delicious vegetarian meal.  The flavours for such a simple dish were so intense served with a side of fluffy rice and a few squares of crispy salty paneer, I just had to do a repeat performance for the two of us.  My husband, a meat lover, was amazed that a […]

GRILLED CARROT DOGS

Today’s recipe is a little weird, even for me.  I’m not vegetarian and certainly not vegan.  I do like meat from time to time and now that we are living on the east coast am loving the abundance of fresh fish and seafood sometimes literally at our back door. But I’m really intrigued by some nutirent-rich plant-based dishes.  I feel it’s good to learn more […]

ITALIAN SAUSAGE and TOMATO RISOTTO

Risotto is one of my all time favourite dishes for so many reasons. It’s the ultimate comfort food…easy, creamy and flavourful. The base ingredients keep so well in our tiny galley…rice, garlic, onion, chicken broth and parm. Easy to throw together…gather the ingredients and 20 minutes later…pure Italian heaven! With a few additions the basic recipe can be transformed into a multitude of options. This next […]

MASHED POTATO KALE CAKES with ROUILLE

Let’s talk about leftovers. You know by now that I am a big fan of cooking once and eating twice. It just makes so much economical sense to me: Less fuel used Less planning Less work Fewer shopping trips to the market with fewer temptations Overall, less time taken. Leftovers may also be a nasty not-really-four-letter-word for some. !BORING! With a little imagination though I […]
