SEA SALT GALLEY KAT

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 […]

GALLEY BRIOCHE BREAD

I’m having a pile of fun in my land galley this week.  I can’t go anywhere anyway for obvious reasons because our province is still in it’s very early stages of loosening restrictions from the dreaded virus.  Hiking trails are open, as are parks.  We’re lucky to have a yard to be able enjoy fresh air and movement and it’s spring so there’s no shortage […]

GALLEY CINNAMON ROLLS

How many of you have been feeling challenged lately?  You know what I mean? Limitations due to this global covid-19 pandemic. Restrictions placed on social contact. Restrictions placed on shopping. And when you do carefully venture to find even basics, certain items are either in short supply or plainly non-existant. I’m actually finding the challenges moderately exciting.  What can I do to limit possible exposure? […]

MUFFULETTA MEAT BALLS

Being the frugal Galley Kat that I am, I really really needed to use up the remains of my muffuletta sandwich ingredients ( MUFFULETTA – sandwich of the Cajun Gods)  Some deli meat.  Some tasty olive salad.  Some provolone cheese. And I just happened to have some extra ground chicken that I was using for a little Butter Chicken meatball affair that I’ve been working on. […]

BRIT’S COCONUT DREAM CAKE

This cake is so rich. So sweet.  So very share-worthy. So what would possess me to make a whole cake when the very last thing I can do during this COVID crisis is share, I had to ask myself?  Oh well!  The next best thing I can do is eat the whole thing and share it’s yumminess with all of you virtually. I made a […]

FLORA’S FLOUR TORTILLAS

Several weeks ago before we had to be concerned about going out, I met up with an old friend. We shopped.  We talked. We sipped and dined.  The reason I’m bringing this up is what I ordered when we dined.  A simple chicken caesar wrap.  I came home thinking about that wrap, it was that good.  The tender morsels of chicken. The crispy lettuce and […]
