GALLEY CAKE MIX

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 in a time when convenience foods were just becoming popular, we ate mostly locally grown…

GALLEY BRIOCHE BREAD

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 of things to do preparing the garden for planting.  Every day I check the weather….

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.

Please share!  And he did and here I am well…

BREAD-in-a-BAG

BREAD-in-a-BAG

  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 first attempt (Bread on the Barbecue – part 1) was a success… As was baking…

BREAD MACHINE BREAD

BREAD MACHINE BREAD

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 a bit of tweaking of my standard recipe I have reached a reasonable compromise. BREAD…
