Hi there my Galley friends.  Good to have you drop by today.  I have for you a tasty little number, perfect for breakfast, brunch or easy supper.  And you can make it a day ahead, all ready to pop in the oven. It’s in the style of bread pudding with a base of bread, milk and eggs but definitely on the savoury side….with all the […]

Hi there my Galley Peeps.  I apologize for my absence. A blue funk has hovered over my head lately and I just haven’t felt like creating.  So unlike me, I know. But I’m back today with a rather fun little recipe for you.  I thought it would be useful for we who live in small spaces or those with limited water resources. It all begins […]

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.

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.

I’ve had this hanging around in my data base for ages and I now wonder why I waited SO long to try it.  Got the recipe from another boater who blogged about something or other (I honestly can’t remember what it was about…so long ago) and in the conversation he mentioned making English muffins.  You mean in your boat oven I asked?  Stove top was […]

  Yep…more bread… I continue to strive to improve and simplify the process to arrive at bread heaven. Even though the use of the bread machine greatly simplifies the task, it still requires electricity and I have yet to challenge our onboard inverter. I find ‘Artisan Bread’ intriguing because all the basic rules and processes of bread making seem to fly out the window My […]

In moderate desperation to have a decent bread supply onboard that didn’t require a lot of work, a lot of mess, a lot of time, and a lot of fuel or electricity consumption, I brought my ‘little’ bread machine onboard for a trial… On shore power it worked very well… I just needed to get that right formula of crispy crust and chewy interior. With […]
