BANANA BREAD MUFFINS with MAPLE BACON COMPOUND BUTTER

  Keeping simple galley methods in mind I transformed my favourite banana bread recipe into individual muffins baked in my Omnia Stove Top Oven.  A dozen perfect little hand treats resulted.  What made them even better was the addition of Maple Bacon Butter smeared over their already rich moist warm surface.  Sadly they never last very long once Captain gets wind of their existence but […]

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 […]

ITALIAN EASTER PIE

Because of where we live, April has yet to be a time when we are on the water. But someday within the next few years there will be an occasion to enjoy some Easter treats onboard. Last year I compromised with my own galley version of something a bit simpler… …and a little green eggs and ham brunch …and then with all the delicious looking […]

SUN-DRIED TOMATO and FETA CAKE

I had some feta cheese staring at me from the refrigerator this morning, a morning when I felt hungry for muffins… It’s been a while since I made muffins, but I am always it seems in a boat galley frame of mind, so out came my Omnia stove top for another creation. Feta screams for something savoury, so I grabbed my last few sun-dried tomatoes, […]

BLUEBERRY BREAKFAST CAKE

I’m in my cook once eat a few times mode today because sometimes this Galley Kat would rather just enjoy her morning coffee with no cooking involved. I brought a couple of baggies of the dry ingredients to make this breakfast cake onboard this summer using my Bisquick clone recipe as a base. All I have to do is add the eggs and milk and […]

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 […]

MAPLE CORNBREAD

On my list of ‘what-Mom-used-to-make’ fave dishes is Johnny Cake. I always associate it with colder weather (we always ate ‘seasonal’) With American Thanksgiving approaching I thought I would try out a new recipe for cornbread. This one is lighter and a bit sweeter than I remember Mom’s being plus I like the addition of buttermilk and corn kernels. As this is a boat galley […]
