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,…

DOUBLE CHOCOLATE ZUCCHINI MUFFINS with SWEET POTATO CHOCOLATE FROSTING

You read that right – Sweet Potato Frosting and it was spoon-lickin’ yummy.  And just two ingredients.  Where else can you marry rich dark chocolate and a vegetable and call it healthy.  The muffins also were packed with veggies…and rich dark chocolate…and so moist! Super easy to throw together once all the ingredients were gathered.  Dry ingredients all stirred or sifted to make sure there were no lumps, then the wet stuff was folded into the dry.  Lastly I folded…

BLUEBERRY MANGO SHORTCAKE

BLUEBERRY MANGO SHORTCAKE

My sister  made shortcake biscuits for me years ago.  They were so moist, so fluffy, so good.  I haven’t made them in years because we rarely eat dessert but what a treat they were, biscuits cooked in my little stove top oven, fresh fruit drizzled with lime juice and maple syrup, cream whipped to soft peaks. The original recipe is made with Bisquick but I bring my own clone mix onboard (recipe here) Now that I have the rack for…
