BATSARIA (Greek Spinach Pie)

Batsaria = Greek Spinach Pie = Phyllo-less Spanakopita = Mon Dieu Delicious. Being the Galley Kat that I am, that is, always trying to find recipes that can be reproduced in our little boat galley, I have been on the hunt for more hearty tasty dishes that can be cooked in my Omnia stove top oven.  And have I ever found a good one!   […]

Handheld breakfasts are a real bonus for  busy folks.  Especially important for she who mans the galley but would rather be out sailing.  Healthy, make ahead, this next recipe is perfect for a tasty on-the-go meal. I make them in the evening, clean up all the cooking mess, stash them away in the refrigerator so all we have to think about in the morning is making […]

  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 […]

This one is far too good not to share.  You could use your own fave barbecue sauce but if you don’t mind simmering up this amazing mixture of tangy spicy rich thick sauce, please do feel free to use over and over and over again.  At the beginning of each season I make up a batch and bring it onboard.  Two cups of this sauce […]

If ever there was a rich creamy totally satisfying comfort food  this  vegetarian dish is the one. And what a perfect meal considering the weather we have been having… …east facing windows of our little condo apartment completely covered with ice. Spring thaw can’t come fast enough… I took the original recipe, omitted the cream and used 2% evaporated milk instead and I really couldn’t […]

The end of our thirty day Whole30 quest is not the end of our Whole30 quest. Each eliminated food group has to be re-introduced one by one. At the time of this road trip we have added non-grain alcohol/wine back into the mix….obviously not to be included in our road trip menu. We did however toast our success on Day 30 +1 with a very […]

DIETARY REBOOT – Days 15 and 16

What an interesting journey this is turning out to be! It’s challenging me to create meals within certain parameters all the while staving off boredom. It does take a bit of extra work and for sure planning and prepping seems to be the key. Having a willing, enthusiastic and focused partner has kept me on track. So at the half way point of our Whole […]

DIETARY REBOOT – Days 13 and 14

It’s hard to believe we’ve almost reached the halfway point in our Whole 30 Challenge without cheating. Well not entirely without cheating. We weren’t supposed to weigh ourselves…and we did. aaaand… Captain Francois has shed 8 lbs and I, 4 lbs in just two weeks. This wasn’t about weight loss as much as it was about rebalancing our eating habits but the fact that it has […]
