COLD NOODLE VEGGIE BOWL

Keeping along the vein of easy camping meals, I created this next recipe with minimal prep in mind. It’s packed full of veggies and fresh herbs, with no fuss rice noodles, a final addition of Asian inspired vinaigrette and sprinkling of crushed peanuts. I mixed the vinaigrette in a small jar, chopped most of the veggies in advance, and even cooked the noodles, drained and […]

SWEET POTATO, SPINACH and TORTELLINI SKILLET

With rising prices and uncertain fresh food supply, I’ve been turning to simple meals, with easy to keep on hand ingredients.  Sweet potatoes are the  perfect example.  Long shelf life.  Very nutritious.  And usually inexpensive. This easy recipe using frozen cheese tortellini pasta with a few handfuls of fresh spinach offers a delicious supper with a rather pretty presentaion.  Making it even simple as far […]

BAKED SPAGHETTI

You know by now how much I love leftovers.  On the boat it was something I planned for when creating meals.  We got into the habit of eating the leftovers for breakfast the next day…perfect start because our evening meal was typically the heaviest so those extra calories served us well for the sailing day ahead. Now that we are land-based for the winter months […]

CRISPY TOPPING

Hi there Galley folks.  As we head into the colder days, I’ve been taking stock of some basics in my little land kitchen.  I’m not a big fan of frequent shopping trips especially looking ahead to some nasty wintery days when I would much rather be curling up with a good book or binge watching some seasonal faves. Today’s recipe is one of those great […]

HAMBURGER HELPER MIX

Comfort food in a jar is what F calls this. It was a rather chilly rainy time in the camper.  We had to fire up the heater to take all the humidity from the air it was so damp.  The day was spent mostly indoors….that day I made my Soldier Cookies, remember? Well, I had a little two-cup jar of Hamburger Helper mix that I […]

MAC ‘n CHEESE (pressure cooker version)

Hi there my galley friends.  Do I ever have an easy one for you to try today.  Well yes, mac and cheese if already a simple and go to standard  but what if I told you it could be ready in as little as ten minutes and at least half of that time is hands off cooking.  That’s right, three minutes in the pressure cooker […]

ZUCCHINI GNOCCHI with CREAMY SAUCE two ways

True confessions from the Galley.  I’ve never made gnocchi before.  Never eaten gnocchi before.  I’m not sure why exactly except I always had the impression that it was some sort of doughy tasteless pasta.  Boy, was I wrong! As I was making the gnocchi, I kept sampling the little ‘slugs’ as they rose to the top of the boiling water. Shameful I know, but I […]

OLIVIA’S MAKE AHEAD PASTA BAKE

As promised, here is a very tasty casserole-type dish recipe  sent in by one of my Galley Peeps, Olivia.  It uses one can of commercial condensed soup or why not try my homemade version (GALLEY CREAM OF ‘WHATEVER’ SOUP ). One bowl and a baking dish is all you need and what makes it super easy is no boiling the pasta ahead of time.  You […]
