PROTEIN PACKED PUMPKIN PANCAKES

Today’s post is brought to you by the letter ‘P’. A post about protein packed pumpkin pancakes. Maple syrup and a smear of butter is our usual topping with breakfast pancakes but why not try to dress up your morning fair with some special sauce… FRIED BANANAS with HONEY RUM SAUCE LEMON SAUCE Sauces are great to drizzle over your feed of pancakes but so […]

BAKED SPAGHETTI

You know by now how much I love leftovers.  On the boat it was something I planned for when creating meals.  We got into the habit of eating the leftovers for breakfast the next day…perfect start because our evening meal was typically the heaviest so those extra calories served us well for the sailing day ahead. Now that we are land-based for the winter months […]

CABBAGE CASSEROLE

Half a cabbage was resting in my refrigerator begging to be used.  What to make? Sub-zero temperatures and yet another storm in our midst and comforting cabbage casserole was born. I added some celery and carrot to the mix for extra nutrition, some creamed soup and Greek yogurt thrown in and supper was ready.  Use whatever creamed soup you wish.  Cream of celery is especially […]

CRAZY BREAD with CRAZY SAUCE

Who comes up with these names for recipes anyway? The ‘crazy’ part of this one is apparently a Little Caesars pizza joint thing.  No doubt an attention grabbing marketing ploy. What makes it ‘crazy’?  Could it be how crazy simple it is to make?  Crazy because of minimal  ingredients? Crazy because of how versatile it is? And, after calculating the nutritional information (see recipe card below), […]

HALIFAX DONAIR PLATTER (new recipe included)

I’m still on my comfort food kick here in my little land galley by the sea.  Did you check out my previous post with a composite of fave casseroles (CASSEROLES for COMFORT)? It’s a pleasure for me, as the creator and keeper of a blog, however small, to have perfect strangers visit from time to time and even more of a treat to have to […]

CASSEROLES for COMFORT

Casseroles are the ultimate in comfort food, especially during cold wintery semi-isolated times.  I’ve taken a wee break from recipe development the past few weeks to do some much needed self-care.  Qigong exercises, meditation are top of my daily routine and the other day I signed up for a session of online ballet lessons (an old lady version of course). While I work on getting […]

JENN’S BOOM BOOM SAUCE

Still on my Galley Basics kick, I looked through some Friends Faves submissions and found this recipe delight from Jenn.  I love the name…Boom Boom Sauce.  No idea where she came up with this name but it does come with a huge flavour explosion…especially if you make it a few hours, or even a day in advance so the ingredients have a chance to hang […]

CRISPY TOPPING

Hi there Galley folks.  As we head into the colder days, I’ve been taking stock of some basics in my little land kitchen.  I’m not a big fan of frequent shopping trips especially looking ahead to some nasty wintery days when I would much rather be curling up with a good book or binge watching some seasonal faves. Today’s recipe is one of those great […]

TURKEY and STUFFING MEATBALLS (plus my fave appetizers)

Tis the season folks.  And because of the past couple of years that we’ve had, aren’t we all into prepping early for the upcoming ‘hoho’ season? Normally, our decorations would come out no earlier than December 1st.  This year. as soon as Remembrance Day was finished (out of respect for my veteran guy and all of those that have served to protect our freedoms, of […]

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 […]
