QUICK KOREAN-STYLE FRIED RICE

QUICK KOREAN-STYLE FRIED RICE

Hi there from your absent Galley Kat.  We’ve been so busy here in our little home by the sea that I can barely turn around before another round of guests from away arrive.  I’ve been told to stop being such a good Welcome to Nova Scotia ambassador but when you’re so much in love with living in paradise it’s really hard for me to stop shouting it from the roof tops. I know that in my last post (recipe here:Easy…

EASY KOREAN-STYLE CHICKEN and BROCCOLI

EASY KOREAN-STYLE CHICKEN and BROCCOLI

Hi there my Galley Peeps.  I’m so glad you dropped by for a visit today.   I’m cooking up a delicious Korean meal for you.  Some very intense spice going on here but it’s all balanced nicely with crunchy cucumber pickles, steamed broccoli, a pile of fluffy basmati rice (I used the brown version this time) all nestled beside some tasty sautéed ground chicken. The Korean spice isn’t really over the top and you can add or subtract the amount…

POTATO CAULIFLOWER CURRY

POTATO CAULIFLOWER CURRY

My daughter invited us to dine with her a while ago and made the most delicious vegetarian meal.  The flavours for such a simple dish were so intense served with a side of fluffy rice and a few squares of crispy salty paneer, I just had to do a repeat performance for the two of us.  My husband, a meat lover, was amazed that a bowl of simple vegetables could be SO good. We had some leftovers so I mashed…

Garlicky White Bean, Artichoke and Broccoli

Garlicky White Bean, Artichoke and Broccoli

A very long day, our weekend guests  had just left and I really didn’t feel like turning around and making supper.  Where’s my glass of wine and foot stool?  I’ll just sit here while someone cooks. No offers? No, don’t get up, I take care of it (me walking toward the kitchen). This will have to be a ‘shop my pantry’ meal. I found one head of broccoli in the refrigerator wanting some attention. There was also a can of…

Well hello there folks.  Thanks for stopping by today and do I ever have a wonderful creation for you!.  It began with a simple pasta concoction earlier this week using my new spice crush…Urfa Biber (I haven’t yet found a local source but this company provided a very good online service – click here)…it’s a Turkish spice that offers a wonderful hit of heat without all the fire.  On a 1-10 heat scale it measures in at about 4.  The dish…

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…
