GALLEY BRIOCHE BREAD PUDDING

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 your baking pan.  Because I made mini brioche loaves, cutting the slices in half worked…

BRIT’S COCONUT DREAM CAKE

BRIT’S COCONUT DREAM CAKE

This cake is so rich. So sweet.  So very share-worthy. So what would possess me to make a whole cake when the very last thing I can do during this COVID crisis is share, I had to ask myself?  Oh well!  The next best thing I can do is eat the whole thing and share it’s yumminess with all of you virtually. I made a couple of substitutions to Brit’s original recipe. Coconut oil stood in for neutral cooking oil…

SALTED CARAMEL UPSIDE DOWN APPLE CAKE

Our apple trees at R.E.D. by the Sea are finished for the season but there are still lots and lots of great Annapolis Valley apples here in Nova Scotia ready for the picking.  So, with guests visiting in the next few days this Galley Kat has been busy…I repeat…busy! ….preparing goodies to welcome them to our little home by the sea. This recipe is not for the diet conscious…I mean, butter and sugar and that’s just the caramel base. Then…

MAY ROUND-UP

MAY ROUND-UP

My goodness this month went fast!   We’ve been so busy dividing our time amongst getting the boat ready for her spring splash, preparing for guests and tending to getting our new-to-us gardens cleaned up that it’s left little time for anything else. I did take the time though to put together a list of your favourite Galley Kat recipes for the month of May. Simply click on the caption of each image for the recipe link. First way at…

RHUBARB CAKE

RHUBARB CAKE

 Here you go my Galley Peeps, the fifth and final rhubarb recipe…although we can’t seem to get enough of this final one.  So rich and dense…not too sweet….the perfect snacking cake. I have a little confession though.  Ours wasn’t totally rhubarb.  I’ve recently discovered that a vile weed, almost alien-like, that has overtaken part of our garden, is actually edible.  Apparently Japanese Knotweed with its nasty invasive root system is almost impossible to eradicate so I’ve decide to embrace my…

PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES – only 3 ingredients!

Oh how far I’ve come from my early stove top cooking days!  My treasured Omnia stove top oven has been with us from the beginning of our boat obsession…now heading into our sixth season.  I must admit some of my first attempts were a bit rough but hey, it’s boat life…camping on the water.  We don’t need fancy.   My previous effort at providing sweet treats without an oven onboard – cookie dough stuffed into baking cups.  Recipe here   It’s…

STOVE TOP BAKED APPLES

STOVE TOP BAKED APPLES

I love all my galley gear, especially my little Omnia stove top oven.  Even though our boat is out of the water for this season, I still use it in our land galley.  And because of our recent packin-up-and-movin-out, it’s been the one appliance I haven’t packed.  Our land oven was scrubbedd clean for the future owner so it became a no cook zone before moving out of our condo (catch up with that story here) With apples in season,…
