FLORA’S FLOUR TORTILLAS

FLORA’S FLOUR TORTILLAS

Several weeks ago before we had to be concerned about going out, I met up with an old friend. We shopped.  We talked. We sipped and dined.  The reason I’m bringing this up is what I ordered when we dined.  A simple chicken caesar wrap.  I came home thinking about that wrap, it was that good.  The tender morsels of chicken. The crispy lettuce and bits of bacon. The creamy tangy garlicky dressing.  The crunchy bits of croutons. The soft…

JOAN’S TACO BOMBS

JOAN’S TACO BOMBS

I’m having a bucket load of fun in the galley today.  Rockin’ to my tunes and making some boomin’ good Taco Bombs. I also joined the gym today.  Commitment isn’t one of my strengths but a friend cornered me and didn’t give me a lot of room to wiggle out of it.  It was SO early…and SO dark…and SO cold…but I must admit, after an hour of movement..I wouldn’t exactly call it a workout…I feel pretty darned good.  And the…

JEANNE’S MEXICAN LASAGNA (vegetarian/vegan version)

JEANNE’S MEXICAN LASAGNA (vegetarian/vegan version)

This was fun to put together.  We love Mexican cuisine and when I received this recipe from one of my Galley Peeps, Jeanne, I thought it would be the perfect dish to prepare in my Omnia stove top oven. The fact that it is vegetarian made it the perfect fit for our current dining life style.  As Jeanne mentioned in her note to me, you can also make it vegan if you wish by swapping out the cheddar for a…

FISH TACOS with CABBAGE SLAW

FISH TACOS with CABBAGE SLAW

Adding to my recent keep-it-local kick, I ordered ten pounds of fresh haddock from a local fisherman.  Ten pounds is a lot of fish, I’ve found out.  I vacuum sealed sixteen portions to freeze for future meals.  Sixteen!  Hardly a practice I’d undertake on our small boat for sure, but oh how delicious and what a treat for me to be able to dig into our freezer…sixteen times! This recipe for fish tacos though is very do-able in any small…

TEX MEX RISOTTO

TEX MEX RISOTTO

 Here’s a tasty one for you Galley Peeps.  It was inspired by one of our home delivery plant-based meals.  A simple risotto with a Tex Mex flair. You’ve probably noticed that I’m big on making my own spice mixes.  For one thing, in my tiny galley there’s precious little space for a gazillion spice containers.  And we do love our Mexican type foods so this Tex Mex combo has become a favourite.  We love a little heat too so I…

ROASTED CORN CHEESE DIP

ROASTED CORN CHEESE DIP

I so do miss our happy hours.  It seems that lately one day melts into the next and half the time the only sure reference of date we have is what month it is….as the conversation goes: what day is it?  I don’t know but I think it’s still September.  Our big move is coming up soon (a reference to our craziness on my other blog here if you are interested) so most days are consumed with making lists and…

STOVE-TOP QUINOA STUFFED PEPPERS

STOVE-TOP QUINOA STUFFED PEPPERS

Here’s another of my little stove top vegetarian dishes for your next Meatless Monday.  You could add some ground chicken or spice it up with some well seasoned sausage but the quinoa and added cheese pack a pretty good protein punch without it. I made them with a Mexican flare, adding jalapenos, corn and black beans to the mix. As there was no animal protein to cook they were ready in about 25 stove-top-minutes,  although if you decide to add…

CHICKEN CARNITAS with ROASTED CORN SALSA

CHICKEN CARNITAS with ROASTED CORN SALSA

When I made pork carnitas the other day, we loved it so much that I felt I had to share the joy with my daughter.  Well, even though I said she could  make it with ‘happy pork’ (her words for free range, no hormone etc etc), she politely responded with a firm ‘no thank you’ but couldn’t I make it with happy chicken?.  So thanks to my little darling I can now say with certainty that these are just as…

TASTY CARNITAS with ROASTED CORN SALSA

TASTY CARNITAS with ROASTED CORN SALSA

When Captain makes a request for something specific from the galley, the Kat does her best to comply.  Francois has been asking for pulled pork anything for some time now so tonight I broke out the pressure cooker to assuage his cravings.  The important thing to remember is that the cut of meat has to be a rather fatty one.  I’ve tried to make pulled pork with tenderloin before and the results were a bit dry.  You can always fudge…
