THE BEST SLOW COOKER STUFFING

The discussion we have every year around Christmas time is ‘to stuff’ or ‘not stuff’….the turkey…not our bellies.  Stuffing the bird means a wonderfully flavourful result with all those juices infused into the bread crumbs but cooking is longer to make sure you don’t kill your guests  and in my opinion, it tends to over-cook the turkey. So this year the decision has been made […]

NOVEMBER RECIPE ROUND-UP

Did you think I had fallen down a rabbit hole?  Well I sort of did.  We’re in the middle of renovating the main bathroom in our little home by the sea.  It’s not very big, this bathroom, but when we take stock of what’s being done, it’s not too unlike building a small home.  Tiling, electrical, plumbing, some drywall, painting, wall papering, all new fixtures […]

SEPTEMBER RECIPE ROUND-UP

My this month went quickly didn’t it?  And here we are again into fall and the beautiful weather that comes with it…and October.  October!  I barely can remember what happened in September, the days just flew by. I can see by the most viewed recipes that you too are getting into the cooler weather frame of mind with spicey sauces, apple dishes, belly warming chicken […]

BROCCOLI CHICKEN BALLS

Now that we live by the sea and not on the boat for the summer I get to spread out when I cook in our land galley.  Spread out AND use more than one pot – a real luxury.   Most of the onbaord eating is made ahead then reheated or I enlist the help of ‘he who cooks’ to fire up the  back-of-the-boat grill. […]

QUICK CHICKEN MASALA with CAULIFLOWER RICE

I’m trying out some more low carb recipes this week and am loving this easy cauliflower rice.  You grind it in a food processor or use a hand grater, fry it up in a little oil and season.  Francois said that when he closed his eyes and tasted it, was almost like eating real rice.  One whole cauliflower is more than enough for the two […]

PRESSURE COOKER ‘ROAST’ CHICKEN and BONE BROTH with bonus EASY GRAVY MIX

I have a super easy and quick two for one recipe post for you today, my Galley Peeps.  In truth it’s actually three because I added my recipe for gravy mix which comes in handy if you don’t have real chicken stock on hand.  Now that we are off-season country dwellers, I have become very conscious of supporting local enterprises.  My latest find is ordering […]

GREEK INSPIRED MEATBALLS

Just because I’m not a football fan (oh the shame!) doesn’t mean I can’t offer you something yummy to nosh on during this year’s big game. Just throw meat and all  into a big bowl, dive in with both hands (properly washed of course) and squish all of those aromatic ingredients together. Serve warm with some tzatziki for dipping and a side salad. An icy […]

DUCK SOUP

Remember Francois’ duck-in-a-bag post from several days ago? (recipe link here in case you missed it) WELL!….I stripped that baby of it’s meat, then plopped the carcass, seasonings and veggies into my slow cooker and boiled the bejesus out of it for 18 hours.  Then I carefully pulled the remains of juicy bits of meat from the bones.  It’s surprising what I harvested…enough meat for […]

HONEY ROAST DUCK (a Captain Cooks creation)

Technically this recipe doesn’t fit my simple boat recipe criteria.  Yes, it was simple but it does require an oven of which I have none onboard.  But….when my man says he wants to cook a duck and the results are so freakin’ delicious I felt I needed to share it with you all.  There is a possibility that it could be cooked in a similar […]

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 […]
