IRISH BREAD PUDDING w WHISKEY CARAMEL SAUCE

Hello there Galley friends or should I say top of the mornin’ to you? I gave my guy a choice of what he would like for this year’s Saint Patrick’s Day treat.  A traditional cooked breakfast with some tasty Irish potato cakes or Irish bread pudding.  Silly me!  Of course he chose the dessert.  Lucky him!  Lucky you! I made a few changes to SIMPLE PEACH […]

MUJENDRA (Cypriot rice and lentils)

This week I’m in plant-based heaven again.  I was enjoying a weekend morning cocooning in bed doing catch-up on some reading while having the TV on for some background noise and what do I hear?…’leftovers’?  Got my attention it did. The recipe had a name very similar to something I made for you a while ago…MUJADDARA which is what it’s called in Middle Eastern culinary circles. […]

CRAZY BREAD with CRAZY SAUCE

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), […]

JENN’S BOOM BOOM SAUCE

Still on my Galley Basics kick, I looked through some Friends Faves submissions and found this recipe delight from Jenn.  I love the name…Boom Boom Sauce.  No idea where she came up with this name but it does come with a huge flavour explosion…especially if you make it a few hours, or even a day in advance so the ingredients have a chance to hang […]

HOMEMADE CREAM-STYLE CORN

Hi there my Galley Friends.  I hope you are well and looking forward to some good spring weather as we are on the east coast.  Bit by bit things are opening up as the dreaded virus subsides. I still don’t go out much for retail ventures so I spend time in my land kitchen concocting ways of not using commercially prepared ingredients.  It’s a challenge […]

GINNY’S BUTTER CHICKEN MEATBALLS

Digging into my stash of Friend’s Faves submissions, I found this delicious recipe  for easy butter chicken from Ginny, using ground chicken made into tender juicy little meatballs, floating in a buttery tasting tomato sauce.  The surprise was how buttery it all tasted with only a small amount of butter added at the end. This would be the perfect time to try making the meatballs, […]

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 […]

BAKED GREEN DUMPLINGS in RED PEPPER SAUCE

Inspired by Rita’s Romanian Meatball with that tasty tomato soup sauce and since we were at that time still under 14-day quarantined following crossing provincial borders after selling of our sailboat, I foraged in my garden and pantry for dinner. One jar of roasted red peppers and a bunch of greens became the base for a delicious meatless meal. Trying to use as few dishes as […]

RITA’S ROMANIAN MEATBALLS w/TOMATO SOUP SAUCE

Hi all you Galley Peeps.  There has been so much going on in our lives at the moment, namely the sale of our sailboat R.E.D. (story here).  It’s thrown a curve ball at us that impacts so much of who we are and what we have been doing up to now.  Sea Salt Galley Kat was born out of our love for sailing and for […]
