Hello to you my galley friends.  I’ve been pantry diving again and today I have an easy one for you.  And no cooking involved.  One can of tomato paste, a can opener, mixing spoon and bowl and seasonings are all you need and you have the perfectly simple sauce for your next pizza craving. It makes two cups…enough for two generous tablespoons worth per pizza…freezes […]

Who comes up with these names for recipes anyway? The ‘crazy’ part of this one is apparently a Little Caesars pizza joint thing.  No doubt an attention grabbing marketing ploy. What makes it ‘crazy’?  Could it be how crazy simple it is to make?  Crazy because of minimal  ingredients? Crazy because of how versatile it is? And, after calculating the nutritional information (see recipe card below), […]

Several years ago I made my first batch of donair meat at home….wonderfully spiced little loaves baked in the oven, thinly sliced, topped with tomatoes and onion, wrapped in  warm pita bread then generously drizzled with sauce. Super messy to eat but oh, those flavours!  If you want to know a bit more about donairs or perhaps haven’t even heard of them, take a wee […]

It’s time to talk pizza, my Galley Peeps! I’ve been posting pics of my creations for the past few months on social media because baking soothes my isolated soul and after several requests for my recipe, it’s time to write it up and share. We love pizza in our little home by the sea.  I mean LOVE pizza!  It’s become our Friday night special.  When […]

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 […]

The trouble with setting goals is that you’re constantly working toward what you used to want.” According to Sarah Manguso author of 300 Arguments.  No wonder my goal-setting isn’t working out for me these days. My mind is a pinball machine this week.  ‘Ping’…change direction….’Ping’…there I go again…’Ping’…oooh, I think I’ll try that! Someone mentioned Donair Pizza and all of a sudden I was craving….you […]

By now you likely know much I love leftovers.  Cooking once so we can eat two or three times just makes so much sense for us in my little galley.  Tonight I had extra portions of meatloaf and mashed potatoes with a few Brussels sprouts in the boat cooler. Captain had a hunger on for pizza so I threw together this next recipe using my […]

SLOW COOKER PIZZA – an experiment

Here’s an interesting way to get your pizza fix.  Use your slow cooker.  I made up a batch of my one and only pizza dough (recipe here) and laid it out nicely in the bottom of the slow cooker pot. Next, came the toppings.  I kept this one simple with spicy sausage, caramelized onion and lots of cheese. Then I put the lid on loosely […]

For this next deeelightful recipe I used my recipe for Artichoke Dip as inspiration (recipe link here) and modified it somewhat for this Friday pizza party.  Trying to insert more greens into our diet (doctor’s orders), I chopped a few Brussels sprouts to add to the mix. And although I have several recipes for pizza dough, the one that I’ve been using lately has become […]

Oh pizza!  That perfect food! That combination of sometimes snack food, sometimes complete meal and in my galley, always reasonably healthy.  I’ve never understood why it’s called junk food by some because when you make everything yourself with fresh ingredients how could this creation be anything but the next thing to perfection ever. Firstly, let’s make the dough. Here is the link to my tried […]
