HADDOCK MILANESE with DEVILED BRUSSELS SPROUTS

HADDOCK MILANESE with DEVILED BRUSSELS SPROUTS

I’m back!  Did you miss me?  I’ve been so involved with my new project (details to come soon I promise) that I almost forgot about my Galley Peeps.  So sorry. I promise to be more attentive in the future.  As an apology  I’m offering a very easy and super tasty meal for you.  A two for one. The warm Brussels sprout salad could easily be a stand alone.   The crispy salty crunch of the charred sprouts leaves kept me…

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…

THE BEST SLOW COOKER STUFFING

THE BEST SLOW COOKER STUFFING

The discussion we have every year around Christmas time is ‘to stuff’ or ‘not stuff’….the turkey…not our bellies.  Stuffing the bird means a wonderfully flavourful result with all those juices infused into the bread crumbs but cooking is longer to make sure you don’t kill your guests  and in my opinion, it tends to over-cook the turkey. So this year the decision has been made to ‘not stuff’.  Give a cheer for getting one thing made ahead!   All the…

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…

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…

OCTOBER RECIPE ROUND-UP

OCTOBER RECIPE ROUND-UP

Hi all you Galley Kat Peeps. I thought that this month instead of a collection of your most viewed recipes, I’d re-post my favourite chowder recipes. Last week’s post of Fisherman’s Stew was one of your most searched of my little galley recipes this month (you can find that recipe here). Is it maybe because the time of year with changing leaves, crisp cool days and fall harvest has you hungry for some easy belly warming soups, stews and chowders?…

EASY FISHERMAN’S STEW

EASY FISHERMAN’S STEW

We recently took a vacation from our little home by the sea to visit Cape Breton and the beautiful Cabot Trail.  Fall….in my opinion…. is the best season in Nova Scotia.  Crisp cool air and oh those spectacular turning leaves! Our final meal before returning home was at a small quirky little restaurant in Louisbourg.  Actually it was the only restaurant open as being a mainly tourist town, many businesses had closed shop for the season.  But even if there…
