DIANNE’S MARINATED GRILLED LEMON CHICKEN

DIANNE’S MARINATED GRILLED LEMON CHICKEN

Hello there my Galley Folks.  Nice of you to drop by today.  During a recent camping trip I scored this awesomely delicious recipe from a family friend.  She brought some grilled chicken as her contribution to our shared meal one night and it was so good and so juicy.  The trick she said was a good long marinade time.  She had prepared it ahead, brought it chilled and served it with a crisp salad, making it the perfect addition to…

HAMBURGER HELPER MIX

HAMBURGER HELPER MIX

Comfort food in a jar is what F calls this. It was a rather chilly rainy time in the camper.  We had to fire up the heater to take all the humidity from the air it was so damp.  The day was spent mostly indoors….that day I made my Soldier Cookies, remember? Well, I had a little two-cup jar of Hamburger Helper mix that I made up a while ago just for such an occasion. Within minutes we had dinner…

GINNY’S BUTTER CHICKEN MEATBALLS

GINNY’S BUTTER CHICKEN MEATBALLS

Digging into my stash of Friend’s Faves submissions, I found this delicious recipe  for easy butter chicken from Ginny, using ground chicken made into tender juicy little meatballs, floating in a buttery tasting tomato sauce.  The surprise was how buttery it all tasted with only a small amount of butter added at the end. This would be the perfect time to try making the meatballs, blenditarian style. Never heard of it? Well, it’s a great way to cut down on…

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…

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…

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…

JULY RECIPE ROUND-UP

JULY RECIPE ROUND-UP

So you’ve been entertaining this month have you?  Well, according to July stats you have.  Quite heavily in fact in the appetizer category.  We have too.  With visits from near and far and a spectacular neighbourhood house warming, I’ve been a very busy Galley Kat. Top of the list was this tasty recipe for zucchini and chicken bites.  I guess some of you must already be harvesting zucchini from your gardens.  Lucky you! Number two on your July faves was…

QUICK CHICKEN MASALA with CAULIFLOWER RICE

QUICK CHICKEN MASALA with CAULIFLOWER RICE

I’m trying out some more low carb recipes this week and am loving this easy cauliflower rice.  You grind it in a food processor or use a hand grater, fry it up in a little oil and season.  Francois said that when he closed his eyes and tasted it, was almost like eating real rice.  One whole cauliflower is more than enough for the two of us so guess what? It freezes really well.  I put the extra into a…

PRESSURE COOKER ‘ROAST’ CHICKEN and BONE BROTH with bonus EASY GRAVY MIX

PRESSURE COOKER ‘ROAST’ CHICKEN and BONE BROTH with bonus EASY GRAVY MIX

I have a super easy and quick two for one recipe post for you today, my Galley Peeps.  In truth it’s actually three because I added my recipe for gravy mix which comes in handy if you don’t have real chicken stock on hand.  Now that we are off-season country dwellers, I have become very conscious of supporting local enterprises.  My latest find is ordering vegetables and meats every two weeks from a nearby farm.    They send a list…

GREEK INSPIRED MEATBALLS

GREEK INSPIRED MEATBALLS

Just because I’m not a football fan (oh the shame!) doesn’t mean I can’t offer you something yummy to nosh on during this year’s big game. Just throw meat and all  into a big bowl, dive in with both hands (properly washed of course) and squish all of those aromatic ingredients together. Serve warm with some tzatziki for dipping and a side salad. An icy crisp beer rounds off the presentaion. I’ve added a recipe for a quick Greek Salad…
