CASSEROLES for COMFORT

CASSEROLES for COMFORT

Casseroles are the ultimate in comfort food, especially during cold wintery semi-isolated times.  I’ve taken a wee break from recipe development the past few weeks to do some much needed self-care.  Qigong exercises, meditation are top of my daily routine and the other day I signed up for a session of online ballet lessons (an old lady version of course). While I work on getting my galley mojo workin’ again, I’m crowning January Casserole Comfort Month and so you, my…

TURKEY and STUFFING MEATBALLS (plus my fave appetizers)

TURKEY and STUFFING MEATBALLS (plus my fave appetizers)

Tis the season folks.  And because of the past couple of years that we’ve had, aren’t we all into prepping early for the upcoming ‘hoho’ season? Normally, our decorations would come out no earlier than December 1st.  This year. as soon as Remembrance Day was finished (out of respect for my veteran guy and all of those that have served to protect our freedoms, of course), I broke with tradition and started dragging boxes from under our basement stairs…and undertook…

ROASTED CAULIFLOWER with HOMEMADE HUMMUS

ROASTED CAULIFLOWER with HOMEMADE HUMMUS

Imagine, if you will, perfectly roasted and lightly spiced cauliflower nestled in a puddle of creamy lemony hummus.  Well right here is where imagination becomes reality. I was feeling inspired with my recent creation using Urfa Biber, my latest spice obsession and decided to continue this love story to throw together (almost literally) something plant-based for supper tonight. Here is the link and where I found my urfa biber supply: SUPER YUMMY LEMONY PASTA with CHICK PEAS and SCALLOPS Making…

SONJA’S KALPUDDING (Swedish Meatloaf)

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 origin.  It can however be cooked in a traditional  land oven but with the Omnia,…

BLUEBERRY CHEESE TARTLETS

BLUEBERRY CHEESE TARTLETS

Hello to you my Galley Friends. Here’s my situation.  I’ve been invited to a friend’s place for bison burgers…a friend from Alberta who is a consummate  carnivore.  A bit of back story…we treated him a while ago to some water buffalo burgers (I made Juicy Lucys) and he wanted to return the favour.  I offered to bring a side dish.  Offer accepted.  Then I thought maybe I could bring some dessert too so I offered peach pie because, thanks to…

SOLDIER COOKIES (anzac biscuits)

SOLDIER COOKIES (anzac biscuits)

Hi there Galley folks.  I thought you might like this great cookie recipe to add to your ‘easy stuff’ repertoire.  We have a couple of things happening this week that requires a sweet treat to have on hand…not that I need an occasion for sweet treats..haha! We’ve been invited to a friend’s place for coffee…always an occasion to bake up a little host gift….plus we’re off on a family cabin camping weekend.  Kids and grandkids alike will be expecting Gramma…

FRUIT COBBLER – with make-ahead topping

FRUIT COBBLER – with make-ahead topping

Hi there my Galley Friends. I have a fun trick for you today that will make your nomadic-tiny-living-rv’ing-camping-off-grid existence so much easier. Now if I described this as dessert from a can, a jar or a bag, what would you think? EEW right? But that’s what it is really. I used to make up little zip baggies of the topping and bring it with us on our boating trips. They take up so little room and keep well.  Small tins…

MAC ‘n CHEESE (pressure cooker version)

MAC ‘n CHEESE (pressure cooker version)

Hi there my galley friends.  Do I ever have an easy one for you to try today.  Well yes, mac and cheese if already a simple and go to standard  but what if I told you it could be ready in as little as ten minutes and at least half of that time is hands off cooking.  That’s right, three minutes in the pressure cooker and your creamy cheesy pot of comfort is three-quarters complete. I also have added a…

CINNAMON SWIRL CAKE

CINNAMON SWIRL CAKE

On a roll my Galley friends.  Two blog posts in two weeks.  I think my deep blue funk is now a thing of the past.  Spring weather has a lot to do with it I’m sure…plus we recently de-winterized our little land trawler, RED II and spent the weekend aboard.  We are in lock down because of a nasty out-break of COVID in our east coast province and my daughter wanted a place to space-out (read all about it here),…

YOGURT CAKE

YOGURT CAKE

Hi there my Galley Peeps.  I apologize for my absence. A blue funk has hovered over my head lately and I just haven’t felt like creating.  So unlike me, I know. But I’m back today with a rather fun little recipe for you.  I thought it would be useful for we who live in small spaces or those with limited water resources. It all begins with a small container of yogurt and the fun part is that you use that…
