EASY STOVE TOP SALMON

EASY STOVE TOP SALMON

Most of the time our onboard meats are grilled on the barbecue. Captain Francois (AKA Captain Cook) is usually the one who ‘mans’ that appliance. But today the weather was rainy, we had taken the barbecue down to mount the full boat enclosure and I had already taken our proposed grilled salmon from our home freezer to marinate. Being the resourceful Galley Kat that I am (or have to be on a boat) I wrapped those sweet juicy jewels of…

LAST of the LINE TOMATOES

LAST of the LINE TOMATOES

Last can of tomatoes… Last onion… My little alcohol stove filled with the last of the fuel… And this Galley Kat has run out of creative ideas… …almost…   I made a batch of my Two Ingredient Tomato Sauce for a simple pasta supper tonight… …but being ever conscious of time and stove fuel economy, I doubled the amount of pasta we needed. This gave me about 4 cups of cooked pasta and about 1.5 cups tomato sauce. To the…

SAILOR’S CASSEROLE

SAILOR’S CASSEROLE

Recently when doing some searching for more easy onboard recipes using Jiffy Cornbread, I came across several recipes for Cowboy Casserole. I had made a couple of batches of my own clone mix for making Cornbread (recipe here) to bring onboard so thought, why not make this into a Sailor’s Casserole instead using our Omnia stove-top oven?…afterall, Captain prepared our last two dinners, it’s time for the Galley Kat to pull her weight. Even though it’s a bit rock and roll preparing dinner while under way,…

GOOP PAN RELEASE

GOOP PAN RELEASE

I honestly don’t know what else to call this…pan release maybe? not Pam because I can’t spray it. The main issue is not what to call it but does it work?  Onboard as you by now know, I don’t have an oven but when one is needed I use my little stove-top Omnia Oven.  We found it so useful that Captain suggested we have one for land use and one for the boat.  The only problem with it is that unless it…

CHEESY CORN TAMALE PIE

CHEESY CORN TAMALE PIE

Here is a wonderful reprieve from all my salad recipes. And because this was made in my stove top oven, I wanted to test out a new method of greasing the baking pan with my homemade pan release… If it works well, I’ll post the recipe for GOOP tomorrow… CHEESY CORN TAMALE PIE 1 recipe for Jiffy Cornbread Clone Mix 1/2 cup melted butter 2 eggs, lightly beaten 1 cup plain Greek yogurt 1-12 oz can creamed corn 1-14 oz…

JIFFY CORNBREAD CLONE MIX

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 tbsp sugar 1 tsp sea salt 1 tbsp baking powder 1/2 tsp baking soda When…

NOT-MY-MOMMA’S PINEAPPLE UPSIDE-DOWN CAKE (Stove-top version)

NOT-MY-MOMMA’S PINEAPPLE UPSIDE-DOWN CAKE (Stove-top version)

Now that my Omnia oven is all washed up from our Italian Easter Pie I can make a little Easter dessert for you. …and for Captain François of course. Ahh the limitations of boating life… not a lot of space and most of us, even on special holidays, would rather be out of the cabin enjoying the fine weather and sunshine. NOT-MY-MOMMA’S PINEAPPLE UPSIDE-DOWN CAKE 1/4 cup coconut oil 1/2 cup brown sugar 1 small can pineapple bits in juice,…

ITALIAN EASTER PIE

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 recipes for baked hams and scalloped potatoes, I broke down and made a pseudo-traditional Easter…
