Cabbage Rolls are one of those meals that screams comfort.  Maybe it’s because it brings back memories of my Mom’s version with it’s rich tomato sauce, tender cabbage and savoury meat filling.  I don’t make them often…well, hardly ever…and have never tried them while in my tiny boat galley because it always seemed like so much work. When going through some Friend’s Faves submission, I […]

Good day to all you Galley friends, this week, directly from our camper.  We are enjoying a few days away from our little home by the sea at a camp ground…also by the sea. I brought with me the ingredients for making some of my protein packed bites…this time made with canned tuna.  They are super easy to throw together. Make a great little road […]

A long time ago I ran across an article entitled ‘44 Classic French Meals You Need to Try Before You Die’ so I jumped right in to tackle the list, modifying each one for easier boat galley cooking. Please feel free to scroll through what I was able to accomplish aboard our little 26 foot sailboat with a one-burner alcohol burning stove, a hand pump […]

IRISH ROUND-UP + bonus recipe

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Happy March to you all, Galley Peeps.  For most of us in the northern parts of the world it’s a month we all look forward to, regardless if we’ve had our last snow fall or not.  We know that gradually those dark winter days will turn into days that are longer and longer, warmer and warmer. Several birthdays to celebrate […]

My goodness this month went fast!   We’ve been so busy dividing our time amongst getting the boat ready for her spring splash, preparing for guests and tending to getting our new-to-us gardens cleaned up that it’s left little time for anything else. I did take the time though to put together a list of your favourite Galley Kat recipes for the month of May. […]

DECONSTRUCTED EGG ROLLS (stove top version)

What to cook for dinner when time is tight and you’re craving something tasty, quick and Asian?  To make this one quicker I cut out the middle man so to speak….the egg roll wrappers.  I’ve made Deconstructed Egg Rolls before but in the pressure cooker (link to recipe below) but we are in the process of moving land homes and have left my pressure cooker […]

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 […]

Grilling time folks and this rather tasty meal could never be easier.  Just gather all your ingredients together. Divide amongst four sheets of foil and season liberally. The limiting ingredient is the potatoes (depending on the size), so when they are done the rest will be fully cooked, about 20-30 minutes and the corn was so juicy and tender it didn’t even need added butter. […]

Oh my, but this was good!  I made a batch of this pepper bacon and before it was barely cooled I had consumed or rather inhaled at least half of it.  Sadly this was all that remained from one pound of bacon.  Seven slices.  I made a special trip back to the market for another package.  Bacon addicts anonymous should be notified. I think I’ve […]

Missing my land-based Friday happy hours. The one day of the week that was a no-cook zone.  I could prepare things in advance but the whole idea was to create a no fuss, easy on the Galley Kat end of the week kind of dinner when we both got home from work.  Sometimes I would get a little carried away (who me?) with new recipes […]
