YOGURT CAKE

YOGURT CAKE

Hi there my Galley Peeps.  I apologize for my absence. A blue funk has hovered over my head lately and I just haven’t felt like creating.  So unlike me, I know. But I’m back today with a rather fun little recipe for you.  I thought it would be useful for we who live in small spaces or those with limited water resources. It all begins with a small container of yogurt and the fun part is that you use that…

BOBBI’S EASY CORN BISCUITS

BOBBI’S EASY CORN BISCUITS

Recently one of my Galley Peeps emailed me to say she came across my BISQUICK CLONE mix and sent me this really REALLY easy biscuit recipe, making easy that much easier. It’s perfect for boat or RV/camper folks because all you need is some biscuit mix, a little melted butter and a can of creamed corn….things you would normally have on hand. That’s it! And my goodness are they ever good!  F couldn’t keep his hands off them.  I made a…

HOMEMADE CREAM-STYLE CORN

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 for me and I really enjoy it. This latest recipe was the results of needing…

CHICKPEA STEW with CORNBREAD DUMPLINGS

CHICKPEA STEW with CORNBREAD DUMPLINGS

As promised, here’s my recipe for delicious Chickpea Stew and Cornbread Dumplings.  For this quantity you can half my Corn Meal Muffin recipe which should give you room for eight or nine dumplings.  The results are very much like chicken pot pie without the chicken. Another time I did add some cooked chicken leftover from Christmas that I had stashed away in the freezer but if you decide to go ‘no face or mother’ to keep it purely vegetarian you…

CORN MUFFIN MIX – an update

CORN MUFFIN MIX – an update

Hi there folks.  I realize that I’ve been a wee bit absent lately.  I get that way sometimes, feeling my inspiration lacking but every time I start thinking about spring and what form it might take – specifically, picking up our little land trawler, RED II camper extrordinaire – I get motivated. Planning is my thing and at the moment I’m making lists of what we’ll need.  Making mood boards is an easy way to visualize the ‘look’. You should…

MONIQUE’S TARTIFLETTE

MONIQUE’S TARTIFLETTE

Hello there Galley Peeps.  Glad you stopped by today because, while going through some of my Friend’s Fave recipe submissions, I came across one from a French follower.  Written in French too. My French guy said he had never heard of a Tartiflette but his eyes lit up when I mentioned that it had stinky French cheese and doesn’t he love stinky French cheese. Reading through the ingredients and instructions, this dish with the unusual name began to take on…

2020’s TOP TEN RECIPE ROUND-UP

2020’s TOP TEN RECIPE ROUND-UP

Good day my faithful Galley Friends.  Well, it’s been quite a year hasn’t it?  I hope you have all managed to come through it healthy and safe.  Here in our little country home by the sea, it has been fairly easy…fairly.  As with most of you though we are going through COVID fatigue.  Holiday celebrations were not as in years past. Our families were separated to keep all safe and we complied…not happily mind you…but we did. I didn’t have…

UTTERLY AWESOME BROWNIE MIX

UTTERLY AWESOME BROWNIE MIX

Good day my Galley folks.  While this COVID thing has meant outing restrictions, I’ve focused my energies on simplifying my already simple life even further.  This combined with my dislike of commercial mixes had me coming up with a plan for a make-ahead treat. Today in my little land galley, I’m mixing up a batch of chocolatey brownies. Before I go any further, a word about mixes. I follow a lot of blogs of you folks on boats, in campers…

GINNY’S BUTTER CHICKEN MEATBALLS

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, blenditarian style. Never heard of it? Well, it’s a great way to cut down on…

CRANBERRY SQUARES

CRANBERRY SQUARES

Hello folks!  How are things in your neck of the woods?  Here on the east coast nothing much has changed as the dreaded virus is still amongst us…although in smaller numbers than in the rest of the world.  We recently celebrated our Canadian Thanksgiving…still thankful for so many reasons in spite gathering restrictions. Since it was just the two of us, I dug out my favourite recipe for slow cooker turkey breast.  It’s a great way to get that traditional…
