CREAMED CORN CASSEROLE

Hello there my Galley Folks.  Glad you stopped by today because I have a tasty little casserole for you to try.  I made it as a side dish for Easter dinner and F loved it so much I had to make it again…and again…and again. There’s something about the buttery crunchy topping and the custardy sweetness of the corn in each bite that makes it […]

HOMEMADE CREAM-STYLE CORN

Hi there my Galley Friends.  I hope you are well and looking forward to some good spring weather as we are on the east coast.  Bit by bit things are opening up as the dreaded virus subsides. I still don’t go out much for retail ventures so I spend time in my land kitchen concocting ways of not using commercially prepared ingredients.  It’s a challenge […]

JUNE RECIPE ROUND-UP

Since I’ve been posting these recipe round-ups it’s been fun watching the patterns of the most popular searches and boy oh boy you guys have been grilling and from what I can tell camping/RV’ing/boating up a storm.  It’s all about the barbecue and Omnia cooking this month.  Not to exclude you who are without the little stove-top miracle of an oven because you know I […]

TEX MEX RISOTTO with bonus TEX MEX SPICE MIX

 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 […]

SALMON and SWEET CORN STEW

 Having one of those days.  Don’t want to cook.  Don’t know what to cook even though I have a well planned database to choose from and a pantry and refrigerator fully stocked.  I just DON’T FEEL LIKE COOKING!!!  Let’s see what miracle I can pull from the cupboard.  Always conscious of a balanced meal…protein, vegetables and some carbohydrates…I find a can of salmon…I find a […]

ROASTED CORN CHEESE DIP

I so do miss our happy hours.  It seems that lately one day melts into the next and half the time the only sure reference of date we have is what month it is….as the conversation goes: what day is it?  I don’t know but I think it’s still September.  Our big move is coming up soon (a reference to our craziness on my other […]

FRESH DIGBY SCALLOP and GRILLED CORN CEVICHE

Fresh is the name of the game here in the galley today.  Our local market just got in some fresh (never before frozen, or soaked in sodium tripolyphosphate) Digby scallops all plump and juicy.  Some green tomatoes and farm fresh corn on the cob came together to produce our supper tonight. I was feeling a little oink-ish and bought a whole pound of the little […]

CAJUN FOIL PACKETS

Grilling time folks and this rather tasty meal could never be easier.  Just gather all your ingredients together. Divide amongst four sheets of foil and season liberally. The limiting ingredient is the potatoes (depending on the size), so when they are done the rest will be fully cooked, about 20-30 minutes and the corn was so juicy and tender it didn’t even need added butter. […]

STOVE-TOP QUINOA STUFFED PEPPERS

Here’s another of my little stove top vegetarian dishes for your next Meatless Monday.  You could add some ground chicken or spice it up with some well seasoned sausage but the quinoa and added cheese pack a pretty good protein punch without it. I made them with a Mexican flare, adding jalapenos, corn and black beans to the mix. As there was no animal protein […]

CHICKEN RAVIOLI BAKE

This recipe is one of those zero-stress-company’s-coming kind of dinners.  We have our condo up for sale and in the midst of making sure everything was clean and neat we also were expecting dinner guests, and on top of that we had scheduled three showings back to back just before guests were to arrive.  So I can confirm first hand that this meal was indeed […]
