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…

ZUCCHINI GNOCCHI with CREAMY SAUCE two ways

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 couldn’t believe how tasty they were.  Add this to the rich creamy corn sauce and…

LYNN’S APPLE DONUT CAKE

LYNN’S APPLE DONUT CAKE

In the mood for some Fall baking?  I hope so, because I have a good one for you this week. This recipe was sent in by one of my Galley Kat readers who thought it just might be perfect to try out in the Omnia stove top oven.  And she was right. Sometimes it’s hard to tell if there will be too much batter to fit into the baking pan, but this one was a perfect fit. When I licked…

LENA’S PLUM TART

LENA’S PLUM TART

Hey there folks. It’s another busy day in my galley and I really wanted something tasty for dessert. I searched in my stash of Friend’s Faves submissions and found one from Lena for a plum tart and I just happened to have seven little purple plums at the perfect stage of ripeness. Some flour, butter, sugar, a dash of salt and a generous amount of lemon zest and I had the makings of a very plummy tart. The plums were…

MEDITERRANEAN BAKED FISH

MEDITERRANEAN BAKED FISH

Good day to you all my Galley Friends.  I hope you are all well and ready for another treat from my little kitchen.  I must admit, that I really have been missing our dear sail boat, and when meal time rolls around I especially miss my very compact but efficient galley. Cooking minimally has become so engrained, that even with more conventional appliances, I still prefer my boat things. Because on the boat I had just one burner to cook…

RUBY’S CINNAMON MONKEY BREAD

RUBY’S CINNAMON MONKEY BREAD

This is the recipe that started me off on a new tack when a friend found out I had a cooking blog and that I focused on easy to make, minimal boat-friendly dishes….and that onboard we are without a conventional oven.  She gave me this recipe of hers to try out to see if it would be appropriate to cook in my Omnia stove top oven.  The answer, a resounding YES!…and a new Galley Kat category was created: Friend’s Faves….

BAKED GREEN DUMPLINGS in RED PEPPER SAUCE

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 possible I first sautéd the greens and set them aside to cool in a  large…

RITA’S ROMANIAN MEATBALLS w/TOMATO SOUP SAUCE

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 me creating recipes that could be reproduced  in my teeny tiny boat galley. We are…
