CALLIE’S CHEESEY BISCUITS

CALLIE’S CHEESEY BISCUITS

This is now one of my treasured tried and true recipes from my daughter’s stash of treasured tried and true.  Really easy to throw together, they freeze very well so make a double batch and hide half away out of the clutches of your resident bread monsters. Sometimes my daughter subs the green onion for bits of minced jalapenos and wow, do they ever go well with a bubbly pot of chili….or with a steamy bowl of soup…or just by…

BUCKWHEAT ZUCCHINI MUFFINS

BUCKWHEAT ZUCCHINI MUFFINS

I have far too many blog posts on the go and not yet published.  This isn’t like me as usually I am way ahead with several weeks of delicious recipes post dated.  Is it the country seaside wintery life that’s taking my attention, slowing my steps a little more, making me want to cocoon and curl up with a good book, leading me down that evil procrastination path?  Whatever it is I must snap out of it. No better way…

SAVOURY BAKED NOODLES (KUGEL)

SAVOURY BAKED NOODLES (KUGEL)

I love kugel, especially the savoury kind.  Well, in truth I love anything with pasta and cheese.  It’s the ultimate comfort food especially welcomed now that we are heading into some chilly days.  I call it my hibernation food. This next recipe was made to be a complete meal with spinach and mushrooms and lots of dairy for protein.  I baked it no-oven-galley-style in my stove top Omnia but for you land folks it easily transforms to a more traditional…

MEATY MEATLESS ‘MEAT’ LOAF

MEATY MEATLESS ‘MEAT’ LOAF

Welcome to another creation for your next Meatless Monday, Galley Peeps.  It’s full of tasty mushroom morsels and nutty toothy texture all densely packed into one savoury loaf. I had some leftover wild and brown rice that I had cooked in the pressure cooker the other day so threw that in for extra oomph. And now that we are back on land for the next few months I have a little more space to keep pots of fresh herbs so…

YUMMY RYE BREAD (bread machine version)

YUMMY RYE BREAD (bread machine version)

Did I really miss posting last week?  So sorry Galley Peeps.  Time does fly when moving in, unpacking, and nesting takes over one’s life. We are almost settled though…at least the main living areas of our little RED by the Sea.  Boat parked outside, all nicely covered in her winter blanket, her veins flushed through with anti-freeze. I found  great recipe for you on allrecipes.com. I used my bread machine to keep this more on-the-boat-authentic but if you don’t have one…

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,…

MEDITERRANEAN-STYLE LEMON CHICKEN

MEDITERRANEAN-STYLE LEMON CHICKEN

Time to add a little heat to the galley today.  Another chilly rainy day  and I have a good book to curl up with.  No time to be messing around with time consuming meals. Six chicken thighs and a handful of vegetables, some olives and lemon for a Mediterranean flair and we had a tasty meal in a little over one-half hour. Being the frugal Galley Kat that I am, I shredded the remaining two thighs, dumped them back into…

LION’S HEAD MEATBALLS

LION’S HEAD MEATBALLS

I have a very easy tasty Asian inspired  meal for you Galley Peeps.  Pork meatballs so full of flavour and tender cooked on a bed of greens in my Omnia stove top oven but you could easily make in a covered wok or baking dish. Don’t be thrown off by how ‘soupy’ the meat mixture is.  It came together very well once browned on each side and produced such juicy  results. If you wish, substitute Chinese cabbage roughly chopped for…

BAKED EGGS IN ROASTED PEPPERS

BAKED EGGS IN ROASTED PEPPERS

Chilly rainy days mean cooked breakfast aboard R.E.D.  I had some fresh greens, peppers and farm eggs just begging to be turned into something belly warming. The greens I used were a mix of baby kale and arugula which gave a more crispy result.  Small chopped spinach leaves work well too.   Choose your peppers wisely if using the Omnia stove top oven.  They should be small enough to sit as flat as possible.  Also, when cutting them try to…

FRESH TOMATO, ZUCCHINI and HALLOUMI BAKE

FRESH TOMATO, ZUCCHINI and HALLOUMI BAKE

Here I am with another yummy fresh tomato recipe.  This time I baked them topped with Halloumi cheese in my little Omnia stove top oven. I suppose I could have made it a one pot wonder but tonight I was feeling cavalier and used a saucepan to simmer the tomato mixture.  Two pots to clean up – oh what a reckless Galley Kat I am! My galley cookware takes so little cleaning up that it was worth using. Once the…
