OCTOBER RECIPE ROUND-UP

OCTOBER RECIPE ROUND-UP

Hi all you Galley Kat Peeps. I thought that this month instead of a collection of your most viewed recipes, I’d re-post my favourite chowder recipes. Last week’s post of Fisherman’s Stew was one of your most searched of my little galley recipes this month (you can find that recipe here). Is it maybe because the time of year with changing leaves, crisp cool days and fall harvest has you hungry for some easy belly warming soups, stews and chowders?…

EAST COAST HODGE PODGE with SEAFOOD

EAST COAST HODGE PODGE with SEAFOOD

How can you resist all the fresh produce these days?  I certainly couldn’t on a recent trip to our local farmers’ market.  A big bunch of carrots, new potatoes, fresh green and yellow beans, some shelled peas made the base of one of my favourite East Coast dishes.   Hodge Podge is a sort of soup, sort of stew depending if you make it thickened or more milky (my recipe for basic hodge podge here)   Tonight though, I went…

WARM CORN CHOWDER SALAD

WARM CORN CHOWDER SALAD

I’m in love with versatile recipes ….ones that are  simple to make …ones where ingredients can be swapped to produce a result just as delicious as the original …ones that can be transformed into something entirely different using the same ingredients. This is one of those recipes. I took a basic corn chowder recipe (for my boat version click here) I swapped out fresh corn for canned corn. I eliminated the milk/cream component and added some fresh green to turn soup…

LOBSTER and PAN-ROASTED CORN CHOWDER

A year has ended. Another has arrived all fresh with resolutions and expectations. It’s the time of the year that calls for an extra special meal shared with special guests.   A very rich and very easy one-pot supper that I created that has brought back memories of places I’ve lived where lobster was served as a traditional New Year’s celebration. LOBSTER and PAN-ROASTED CORN CHOWDER what you will need 2 tbsp butter 3/4 cup corn cut from the cob…

SALMON CHOWDER

SALMON CHOWDER

When the wind does not blow your way, adjust your sails. The same applies to menu planning on a boat… What happens when the weather turns bad and you had planned barbecued salmon, roasted pepper and potatoes, and grilled corn? ….Lemons to lemonade people… We ran into a fairly hefty storm today. Nine hours of waves, winds and bone soaking rain. Trying to be resourceful while keeping it simple sailor (KISS), I went below and prepared a wonderful belly warming…

FISH CHOWDER

FISH CHOWDER

I was distracted today… I call it AAADD (Age Affected Attention Deficit Disorder) You know the kind of day when you start out pursuing one task, then you pass by something that needs to be done, then something else attracts you and you start in on that, and by the end of the day nothing in particular gets done. This was one of those days… I planned on studying for an upcoming Weather exam and maybe a blog post or…

R.E.D.CORN CHOWDER

R.E.D.CORN CHOWDER

I scored four cobs of corn after our club’s corn boil the other day. It was young, fresh and so sweet. The corn chowder I make is rich and creamy and usually kept for chilly wintery days that call for comfort food but here we are still in the summer month of August and temperatures are already starting to drop. I have made it’s richer version using creams but I find I can get the same creamy tasting results using…
