JUDY’S GREEN TOMATO LOAF

JUDY’S GREEN TOMATO LOAF

What perfect timing for this next Friends’ Faves recipe.  Here on the east coast, temps have started dropping and I have so many green tomatoes that will never ripen in their current place on the vines.  Entering onto my galley scene –  Green Tomato Loaf. If you want some point of reference the results are similar to zucchini cake….all moisty and tasty.  The perfect touch of sweetness with a cup of coffee or tea.  Or gussy it up with a…

MARCH ROUND-UP

MARCH ROUND-UP

Happy March to you all, Galley Peeps.  For most of us in the north parts of the world it’s a month we all look forward to, regardless if we’ve had our last snow fall or not.  We know that gradually those dark winter days will turn into days that are longer and longer, warmer and warmer. I decided to do my March round up a little early because this is a big month around here.  Spring.  Several birthdays to celebrate…

2018 RECIPE REVIEW

2018 RECIPE REVIEW

My Happy New Year greeting is a little late, I know.  Stuff seems to always get in the way and before I realize it another month has passed.  I have been busy though, trying very hard to keep my resolutions and am proud of what has been achieved so far.  Decluttering with minimalizing my possessions and consistent exercising tops the list…which is probably why blogging and recipe development have been pushed aside. Curious about how the year went as far…

JUNE RECIPE ROUND-UP

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 will always give you options for conventional land-based ovens but it’s obvious by the number…

ROASTED RHUBARB SHORTCAKE

ROASTED RHUBARB SHORTCAKE

More rhubarb love for you today my Galley Peeps.  I’m not sure how long I can keep going back to my little garden patch and harvest enough fresh goodness for yet another recipe but I’ll keep going until I can’t.  Over the top enthusiasm?  Maybe, but after living in a condo apartment for so many years and I can now waltz..yes, waltz…out my back door and forage for food…you might be a little over the top too. Instead of stewing…

PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES – only 3 ingredients!

PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES – only 3 ingredients!

Oh how far I’ve come from my early stove top cooking days!  My treasured Omnia stove top oven has been with us from the beginning of our boat obsession…now heading into our sixth season.  I must admit some of my first attempts were a bit rough but hey, it’s boat life…camping on the water.  We don’t need fancy.   My previous effort at providing sweet treats without an oven onboard – cookie dough stuffed into baking cups.  Recipe here   It’s…

TIRAMISU

TIRAMISU

I posted this picture a few days ago on instagram while I was prepping for the first ever dinner guests in our new digs by the sea. I was honestly afraid I may have to pitch it out because I wasn’t able to find enough lady fingers and I’d already purchased most of the ingredients and started making some of the parts.  As much as I would like to think I’m organized I can get so scattered sometimes…not always…just sometimes…

STOVE TOP BAKED APPLES

STOVE TOP BAKED APPLES

I love all my galley gear, especially my little Omnia stove top oven.  Even though our boat is out of the water for this season, I still use it in our land galley.  And because of our recent packin-up-and-movin-out, it’s been the one appliance I haven’t packed.  Our land oven was scrubbedd clean for the future owner so it became a no cook zone before moving out of our condo (catch up with that story here) With apples in season,…

EASTER TRIFLE

EASTER TRIFLE

Easter dessert this year started with a feed of muffins…all lemony and gingery.  Not too sweet.  Just right. (Recipe here)   Cut into little chunks they made the base for our sweet treat.  And the great thing about this dessert was that each component could be enjoyed separately.  A little muffin with our morning coffee for example. The crème anglaise, made with Bird’s Custard Powder is also great on its own, or with some fresh fruits added. Sweet morsels of…

GUINNESS CHOCOLATE CAKE

GUINNESS CHOCOLATE CAKE

I’m chanelling my Irish roots today.  Some tasty Irish Whiskey Baby Back Ribs (recipe here) are crisping on the grill as I write this and some delicious Colcannon (recipe here) has been prepared ahead and kept warm while I whip up a little deliciousness for dessert But since life is uncertain, we had dessert first.  Two whole slices.  Shameful but oh so good. So richly chocolatey.  So moist. I’ve had this recipe stashed in my database for a long time…
