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…

SALMON LOAF with DILL SAUCE

SALMON LOAF with DILL SAUCE

Since we’ve been doing so much outdoor work in the garden lately, I haven’t been keeping up with supplying our land galley.  Funny really how I still provision like we are still onboard.  Cans of this and that.  Lots of grains.   Plus more and more we’ve run into friends and some family members who are either cutting back on carbs or for health reasons can’t tolerate gluten.  So I’ve been compiling a few recipes from time to time to…

SMOKED SALMON CROQUE MONSIEUR

SMOKED SALMON CROQUE MONSIEUR

“OH MON DIEU!”…translated….”of all things holy, this was one amazingly delicious sandwich”…and one worthy of bumping all my scheduled posts to have it published today. I am in the midst of preparing a menu for an upcoming cocktail gathering.  Just a simple casual affair to bring together  a small group of friends for some bubbly, a few nibbles and lots of good cheer. Usually I go a little overboard…emphasis less on the ‘little’ and more on the  ‘overboard’.  I have…

GREEK QUESADILLAS with TSATZIKI

GREEK QUESADILLAS with TSATZIKI

How about a little Mexican-Greek fusion for supper tonight? Here is something I brought onboard this summer that I didn’t use…. Canned spinach is kind of gross (in my humble opinion). ….but when I was provisioning this summer, I thought that it might come in handy should we have nothing leafy green or veggie and couldn’t or didn’t want to tramp through a little village to find something fresh. As it turns out, it’s pretty darn good… in this recipe…

BROAD BEAN and PEA SALAD

BROAD BEAN and PEA SALAD

A good friend invited us to a neighbouring boat club a fews days ago for their Greek-themed family barbecue night…. So many delicious dishes, one of which was a broad bean salad, and a green pea salad. Now this following salad isn’t like the two above mentioned but with them as an inspiration I created one of my own, keeping to my ‘prepare once eat twice’ and ease of preparation.   BROAD BEAN and PEA SALAD 1 can broad beans,…
