CHRISTINE’S BAKED POTATO DIP

CHRISTINE’S BAKED POTATO DIP

I’m on a roll here bringing you yet another Friends’ Faves recipe.  The challenge – baking potatoes.  Can you make this without a conventional oven Christine asked?  I’m confident was my response. I have ‘baked’ potatoes before – my favourite being the Salted Baked Potatoes and Roasted Garlic (recipe here), and another potato favourite in my galley is Potato Stacks – an elegant way to serve the lowly potato (recipe here).  But as you might have figured out by now,…

JENNY’S HONEY MUSTARD CHICKEN

JENNY’S HONEY MUSTARD CHICKEN

Well this is fun!  I put out feelers on my last post to ask my Galley Peeps to challenge me in my teeny tiny kitchen.  Calling it my Friends’ Faves series.  Barb’s Sweet Potato Soup was a big hit (recipe here). One of my peeps reached out with this awesomely delicious and super easy chicken recipe.  Can you re-create this in your stove top oven she asked?  Heck yeh!  I even went a step further than I usually do and…

BARB’S SWEET POTATO SOUP

BARB’S SWEET POTATO SOUP

I love it when friends share their yummy recipes and this one is certainly going on my regular rotation.  Super easy to make with lots of healthy ingredients.  We have guests coming soon so this will be the perfect dish to stash away in the freezer for an impromptu meal along with my go-to biscuit recipe after a day of site seeing (recipe for biscuits here: CALLIE’S CHEESEY BISCUITS)   It’s not necessary, but roasting the veggies adds lots of extra…

EASY KOREAN-STYLE CHICKEN and BROCCOLI

EASY KOREAN-STYLE CHICKEN and BROCCOLI

Hi there my Galley Peeps.  I’m so glad you dropped by for a visit today.   I’m cooking up a delicious Korean meal for you.  Some very intense spice going on here but it’s all balanced nicely with crunchy cucumber pickles, steamed broccoli, a pile of fluffy basmati rice (I used the brown version this time) all nestled beside some tasty sautéed ground chicken. The Korean spice isn’t really over the top and you can add or subtract the amount…

SUPER YUMMY LEMONY PASTA with CHICK PEAS and SCALLOPS

SUPER YUMMY LEMONY PASTA with CHICK PEAS and SCALLOPS

Well hello there folks.  Thanks for stopping by today and do I ever have a wonderful creation for you!.  It began with a simple pasta concoction earlier this week using my new spice crush…Urfa Biber (I haven’t yet found a local source but this company provided a very good online service – click here)…it’s a Turkish spice that offers a wonderful hit of heat without all the fire.  On a 1-10 heat scale it measures in at about 4.  The dish…

MARCH ROUND-UP

MARCH ROUND-UP

Happy March to you all, Galley Peeps.  For most of us in the north parts of the world it’s a month we all look forward to, regardless if we’ve had our last snow fall or not.  We know that gradually those dark winter days will turn into days that are longer and longer, warmer and warmer. I decided to do my March round up a little early because this is a big month around here.  Spring.  Several birthdays to celebrate…

2018 RECIPE REVIEW

2018 RECIPE REVIEW

My Happy New Year greeting is a little late, I know.  Stuff seems to always get in the way and before I realize it another month has passed.  I have been busy though, trying very hard to keep my resolutions and am proud of what has been achieved so far.  Decluttering with minimalizing my possessions and consistent exercising tops the list…which is probably why blogging and recipe development have been pushed aside. Curious about how the year went as far…

LENTIL POTATO BAKE

LENTIL POTATO BAKE

Hello Galley Folks.  I’ve been working on some not-so-meaty dishes for you.  I try to strike a balance between animal/fish protein and more plant-based meals at least 3 times each week with a soup or chowder meal thrown into the mix.  Plus I know that in a few days we will be so turkey-ed out that we’ll need a little belly break.  This very repeatable and shareable dish fits in perfectly with a good comfort food vibe. I used chicken…

GRAMMA’S CHRISTMAS THIMBLE COOKIES

GRAMMA’S CHRISTMAS THIMBLE COOKIES

No lengthy write-up for this post this time, Galley Peeps.  Just to say that my Mom used to make these cookies every year around Christmas time.  She made a lot of delicious sweets…at lot!  These aren’t by far the fanciest of Mom’s but I can bring back those special memories just by biting into one…all short bread and buttery with a little crunch of corn flakes and if you eat them just right…sort of circular…you can get a taste of…
