EASY KOREAN-STYLE CHICKEN and BROCCOLI

EASY KOREAN-STYLE CHICKEN and BROCCOLI

Hi there my Galley Peeps.  I’m so glad you dropped by for a visit today.   I’m cooking up a delicious Korean meal for you.  Some very intense spice going on here but it’s all balanced nicely with crunchy cucumber pickles, steamed broccoli, a pile of fluffy basmati rice (I used the brown version this time) all nestled beside some tasty sautéed ground chicken. The Korean spice isn’t really over the top and you can add or subtract the amount…

SUPER YUMMY LEMONY PASTA with CHICK PEAS and SCALLOPS

Well hello there folks.  Thanks for stopping by today and do I ever have a wonderful creation for you!.  It began with a simple pasta concoction earlier this week using my new spice crush…Urfa Biber (I haven’t yet found a local source but this company provided a very good online service – click here)…it’s a Turkish spice that offers a wonderful hit of heat without all the fire.  On a 1-10 heat scale it measures in at about 4.  The dish…

2018 RECIPE REVIEW

2018 RECIPE REVIEW

My Happy New Year greeting is a little late, I know.  Stuff seems to always get in the way and before I realize it another month has passed.  I have been busy though, trying very hard to keep my resolutions and am proud of what has been achieved so far.  Decluttering with minimalizing my possessions and consistent exercising tops the list…which is probably why blogging and recipe development have been pushed aside. Curious about how the year went as far…

LENTIL POTATO BAKE

LENTIL POTATO BAKE

Hello Galley Folks.  I’ve been working on some not-so-meaty dishes for you.  I try to strike a balance between animal/fish protein and more plant-based meals at least 3 times each week with a soup or chowder meal thrown into the mix.  Plus I know that in a few days we will be so turkey-ed out that we’ll need a little belly break.  This very repeatable and shareable dish fits in perfectly with a good comfort food vibe. I used chicken…

GRAMMA’S CHRISTMAS THIMBLE COOKIES

GRAMMA’S CHRISTMAS THIMBLE COOKIES

No lengthy write-up for this post this time, Galley Peeps.  Just to say that my Mom used to make these cookies every year around Christmas time.  She made a lot of delicious sweets…at lot!  These aren’t by far the fanciest of Mom’s but I can bring back those special memories just by biting into one…all short bread and buttery with a little crunch of corn flakes and if you eat them just right…sort of circular…you can get a taste of…

BISCUIT MUFFIN ROLLS

BISCUIT MUFFIN ROLLS

What, you ask? Are they biscuits or are they rolls or are they muffins?  Well in truth they have a bit of an identity crisis.  They have a texture similar to dinner rolls but they have no yeast in them….and they are made in a muffin tin.  So I named them Biscuit Muffin Rolls. One bowl, one spoon, eight little muffin cups makes for a super easy clean-up too. Don’t you think? I played around with the ingredients, keeping the…

BLENDED PIGS in BLANKETS with ORANGE CRANBERRY DIPPING SAUCE

BLENDED PIGS in BLANKETS with ORANGE CRANBERRY DIPPING SAUCE

Have you ever heard of the Blenditarian movement?  Well then, let me tell you about what it means.  A blenditarian is “one who believes the mighty, meaty mushroom makes meals more delicious, nutritious and sustainable.” The Blenditarians have a monthly challenge going on so I created my own submission, a recipe made with spicy local sausage and lots of freshly ground mushrooms. Divide the meaty mixture into four equal portions. Cut each of the two pastry sheets in two. Then…

SALTED CARAMEL UPSIDE DOWN APPLE CAKE

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…
