HAMBURGER HELPER MIX

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 made up a while ago just for such an occasion. Within minutes we had dinner…

MAC ‘n CHEESE (pressure cooker version)

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 and your creamy cheesy pot of comfort is three-quarters complete. I also have added a…

ZUCCHINI GNOCCHI with CREAMY SAUCE two ways

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 couldn’t believe how tasty they were.  Add this to the rich creamy corn sauce and…

OLIVIA’S MAKE AHEAD PASTA BAKE

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 put the prepared casserole to bed in the refrigerator today and tomorrow you bake it…

PAT’S PERFECT PASTA (plus bonus recipe for Mushroom and Sage Pasta Dish)

PAT’S PERFECT PASTA (plus bonus recipe for Mushroom and Sage Pasta Dish)

Have you ever tried to make your own pasta? Friends have told me it’s super easy.  Recent guests to our humble seaside home said they make pasta for lobster filled ravioli….oh, be still my seafood loving beating heart! And recently someone from social media posted a picture of his outdoor pasta making.  So, I thought to myself, if he can easily make it in a camping environment, I can certainly make it in my teeny tiny galley.  Then low and…

NOVEMBER RECIPE ROUND-UP

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 and decor bits.  I’m not sure why it has interfered with blogging really because my…

GENIUS NO COOK PASTA SAUCE

GENIUS NO COOK PASTA SAUCE

I’ve been heavy into easy cooking lately.  Now that we are back on the water I have absolutely no interest in complicated.  Some grilled meat or fish and a fresh salad is about as complex as it gets.  I came across this next recipe and it is just the best idea I’ve seen in a long while.  Made soley with tomatoes and butter and the best part…no cooking. The coolest part is I can make up a batch, pack it…
