SEA SALT GALLEY KAT

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 […]

STUFFED PUMPKIN BLOSSOMS

Did you think I’ve reached the epitome of galley ridiculousness?  Well you may be right, but oh my sweet garden these were SO good! How did these pumpkin blossoms come to be present in my land kitchen you may ask?  Boat related. Our dear sailboat R.E.D. is no longer ours as she now resides in the great white north…Yukon, to be specific. We’ve been having conversations […]

STUFFED BAKED HADDOCK

I have a simple dinner for you today my Galley Peeps. Delicate white fish, some salad crab and buttery crackers crumbs, cooked to perfection in barely 20 minutes. The preparation was super simple too. Fish in pan, a couple of grinds of salt and pepper.  Crumbs, melted butter, seasonings all mixed with crab meat. Sprinkled generously over the fish. Baked. Could it be any easier? […]

MARY’S BAKED FRUIT PUDDING

Hi there my Galley Peeps. Glad you stopped by today because, as promised, I have something for you to use up some of that leftover cake from my last post (Galley Cake Mix) I still laugh when writing that there is such a thing as leftover cake but here you go… One of my Peeps sent in this recipe quite a while ago and I […]

GALLEY CAKE MIX

Continuing on with simplifying my life in the kitchen/galley, I have a super fun recipe for you this week. Those who have been following along for a while, know how much I dislike commercial preparations, preferring instead to make my own whenever possible and practical. Growing up in a small farming community with a father who always preached ‘the closer to nature, the better’ and […]

SIMPLIFIED HALIFAX DONAIR PIZZA

Several years ago I made my first batch of donair meat at home….wonderfully spiced little loaves baked in the oven, thinly sliced, topped with tomatoes and onion, wrapped in  warm pita bread then generously drizzled with sauce. Super messy to eat but oh, those flavours!  If you want to know a bit more about donairs or perhaps haven’t even heard of them, take a wee […]

OLIVIA’S MAKE AHEAD PASTA BAKE

As promised, here is a very tasty casserole-type dish recipe  sent in by one of my Galley Peeps, Olivia.  It uses one can of commercial condensed soup or why not try my homemade version (GALLEY CREAM OF ‘WHATEVER’ SOUP ). One bowl and a baking dish is all you need and what makes it super easy is no boiling the pasta ahead of time.  You […]

GALLEY CREAM OF ‘WHATEVER’ SOUP

Hi there my Galley folks. Are you still isolating these days or has life begun to open up for you?  I’m still practicing my distancing. I still haven’t stepped into a store since early March and have not minded it at all.  A lot of people are finding it difficult but this time away from ‘normal’ has made me more reflective and I’m using it […]

GALLEY PIZZA DOUGH

It’s time to talk pizza, my Galley Peeps! I’ve been posting pics of my creations for the past few months on social media because baking soothes my isolated soul and after several requests for my recipe, it’s time to write it up and share. We love pizza in our little home by the sea.  I mean LOVE pizza!  It’s become our Friday night special.  When […]

GALLEY BRIOCHE BREAD PUDDING

I wasn’t quite sure how to categorize this.  Is bread pudding a dessert?  Is bread pudding a breakfast?  You decide. With this simple recipe it’s easy to transition from a tasty ‘breaky’ of yogurt and fresh fruit to dessert or afternoon tea with the addition of a dollop of whipped cream and fresh berries. Cut the bread slices according to how it will fit into […]
