CREAMED CORN CASSEROLE

Hello there my Galley Folks.  Glad you stopped by today because I have a tasty little casserole for you to try.  I made it as a side dish for Easter dinner and F loved it so much I had to make it again…and again…and again. There’s something about the buttery crunchy topping and the custardy sweetness of the corn in each bite that makes it […]

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. […]

ROASTED CAULIFLOWER with HOMEMADE HUMMUS

Imagine, if you will, perfectly roasted and lightly spiced cauliflower nestled in a puddle of creamy lemony hummus.  Well right here is where imagination becomes reality. I was feeling inspired with my recent creation using Urfa Biber, my latest spice obsession and decided to continue this love story to throw together (almost literally) something plant-based for supper tonight. Here is the link and where I […]

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 […]

STUFFED PUMPKIN BLOSSOMS

Did you think I’ve reached the epitome of galley ridiculousness?  Well you may be right, but oh my sweet garden these were SO good! How did these pumpkin blossoms come to be present in my land kitchen you may ask?  Boat related. Our dear sailboat R.E.D. is no longer ours as she now resides in the great white north…Yukon, to be specific. We’ve been having conversations […]

MELINA’S HALUSKI

When I received this recipe from Melina, I immediately thought comfort food.  It’s simple in ingredients and preparation and reminds me of something a Gramma would make.  And sure enough she mentioned it was a favourite recipe handed down from her Eastern-European Gramma to her Momma to her, a dish she falls back on time and time again.  Oh the memories that must evoke! So […]

LOU’S ROASTED CAULIFLOWER with MUSHROOM SAUCE

I’m getting all fancy with my veggies in the galley today.  Not time consuming fancy.  Nor am I using weird and wonderful ingredients.  But by the time I finished making, then consuming this ultra-delicious dish, it felt very fancified.  I even poured us a glass of crisp white wine to go with to feel extra fancy pants fancy. A lowly head of cauliflower, a package […]
