CARROT and HALLOUMI BURGERS

CARROT and HALLOUMI BURGERS

Hi everyone,  thanks for dropping by… I’ve been a busy busy Galley Kat this week with projects, both indoors and out, screaming to be attacked.  I did, however take the time to write up today’s offering for you… a trifecta of deliciousness… and all plant-based to boot. Tasty veggie packed burger mixture with the added protein punch of crunchy quinoa and salty halloumi….a smearing of home made hummus….and a spicy crispy slaw to round it all out. The carrot mixture…

SUPER YUMMY LEMONY PASTA with CHICK PEAS and SCALLOPS

SUPER YUMMY LEMONY PASTA with CHICK PEAS and SCALLOPS

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…

LENTIL POTATO BAKE

LENTIL POTATO BAKE

Hello Galley Folks.  I’ve been working on some not-so-meaty dishes for you.  I try to strike a balance between animal/fish protein and more plant-based meals at least 3 times each week with a soup or chowder meal thrown into the mix.  Plus I know that in a few days we will be so turkey-ed out that we’ll need a little belly break.  This very repeatable and shareable dish fits in perfectly with a good comfort food vibe. I used chicken…

CRUSTLESS TOMATO QUICHE

CRUSTLESS TOMATO QUICHE

When I first made this recipe, we were on the boat and I kind of just dumped everything into the pan, plunked the cheese on top and cooked it in my Omnia stove top oven.  It was delicious but not terribly pretty.  Notice how I tried to dress it up with a little basil? It did the trick as far as a healthy, easy and tasty boat dish but we are expecting more visitors soon at our little home by…

CAPRESE CUPS

CAPRESE CUPS

I’ve been trying out some recipes for an upcoming guest visit and wanted to prepare something yummy for breakfast or brunch.  And foremost, something easy.  I don’t want to be spending my time with them cooking all day.  I like make ahead dishes but we don’t have a whole lot of room to stash pre-made meals. This recipe fits perfectly.  I can make it fresh with little effort with ingredients that I can have on hand.  Some cheese, tomatoes and…

TEX MEX RISOTTO

TEX MEX RISOTTO

 Here’s a tasty one for you Galley Peeps.  It was inspired by one of our home delivery plant-based meals.  A simple risotto with a Tex Mex flair. You’ve probably noticed that I’m big on making my own spice mixes.  For one thing, in my tiny galley there’s precious little space for a gazillion spice containers.  And we do love our Mexican type foods so this Tex Mex combo has become a favourite.  We love a little heat too so I…

FIG and CAMEMBERT GRILLED CHEESE with CRISPY MUSHROOM SALAD

FIG and CAMEMBERT GRILLED CHEESE with CRISPY MUSHROOM SALAD

I’m loving this sandwich/salad combo that was inspired by one of  our recent meal delivery recipes.  The sweet fig jam, ooy gooy creamy cheese and toasty crispy bread was a sensory delight.  Then you have the tangy/sweet-ish salad dressing over fresh greens.  But what drove it over the top was the addition of crispy mushrooms that have been tossed, then grilled in parmesan and bread crumbs.  Heavenly perfection. Just a few easy steps, beginning with slicing the mushrooms, then tossing…

HALIFAX DONAIR PIZZA

HALIFAX DONAIR PIZZA

The trouble with setting goals is that you’re constantly working toward what you used to want.” According to Sarah Manguso author of 300 Arguments.  No wonder my goal-setting isn’t working out for me these days. My mind is a pinball machine this week.  ‘Ping’…change direction….’Ping’…there I go again…’Ping’…oooh, I think I’ll try that! Someone mentioned Donair Pizza and all of a sudden I was craving….you guessed it…Donair Pizza. ‘Ping’ Halifax Donair meat One loaf for slicing now.  One loaf to…

SHEPHERD’S PIE POUTINE with BEER GRAVY

SHEPHERD’S PIE POUTINE with BEER GRAVY

Now before you go all judgey on me and say that real poutine is fries, gravy and cheese curd…period!, I happen to know after living almost twenty years in Frenchland (Quebec) , there are many ways to skin a poutine.  A gazillion ways! For me, this whole poutine thing started two years ago when we sailed our boat R.E.D. to the Gaspe area of the Saint Lawrence River from Montreal (sailingred).  One of our most memorable stops was Tadoussac where…

PIGGIES in BLANKETS (a Captain Cooks creation)

PIGGIES in BLANKETS (a Captain Cooks creation)

He’s back! again… I am so loving all of this company in my land galley lately.  This time my guy offered to make us his special Pigs in a Blanket.  Some sharp cheddar, weiner wraps (found in your dairy section) and this time he thought we should use meat from our fave local butcher. Cavicchi’s makes the best sausage bites, little meatballs, gluten free with the perfect blend of spices.  This time, mild Italian. To keep with the simple-no-oven-in-my-galley focus…
