SIMPLIFIED HALIFAX DONAIR PIZZA

SIMPLIFIED HALIFAX DONAIR PIZZA

Several years ago I made my first batch of donair meat at home….wonderfully spiced little loaves baked in the oven, thinly sliced, topped with tomatoes and onion, wrapped in  warm pita bread then generously drizzled with sauce. Super messy to eat but oh, those flavours!  If you want to know a bit more about donairs or perhaps haven’t even heard of them, take a wee break and head over to my original post here. There’s also a little more in depth…

GALLEY PIZZA DOUGH

It’s time to talk pizza, my Galley Peeps! I’ve been posting pics of my creations for the past few months on social media because baking soothes my isolated soul and after several requests for my recipe, it’s time to write it up and share. We love pizza in our little home by the sea.  I mean LOVE pizza!  It’s become our Friday night special.  When my son visits, he has to have his Momma pizza fix and I’m more than…

GALLEY BRIOCHE BREAD

GALLEY BRIOCHE BREAD

I’m having a pile of fun in my land galley this week.  I can’t go anywhere anyway for obvious reasons because our province is still in it’s very early stages of loosening restrictions from the dreaded virus.  Hiking trails are open, as are parks.  We’re lucky to have a yard to be able enjoy fresh air and movement and it’s spring so there’s no shortage of things to do preparing the garden for planting.  Every day I check the weather….

GALLEY CINNAMON ROLLS

GALLEY CINNAMON ROLLS

How many of you have been feeling challenged lately?  You know what I mean? Limitations due to this global covid-19 pandemic. Restrictions placed on social contact. Restrictions placed on shopping. And when you do carefully venture to find even basics, certain items are either in short supply or plainly non-existant. I’m actually finding the challenges moderately exciting.  What can I do to limit possible exposure? If I don’t have a certain ingredient, what can I use to substitute?   Can…

PAT’S PERFECT PASTA (plus bonus recipe for Mushroom and Sage Pasta Dish)

PAT’S PERFECT PASTA (plus bonus recipe for Mushroom and Sage Pasta Dish)

Have you ever tried to make your own pasta? Friends have told me it’s super easy.  Recent guests to our humble seaside home said they make pasta for lobster filled ravioli….oh, be still my seafood loving beating heart! And recently someone from social media posted a picture of his outdoor pasta making.  So, I thought to myself, if he can easily make it in a camping environment, I can certainly make it in my teeny tiny galley.  Then low and…

PIGGIES in BLANKETS (a Captain Cooks creation)

PIGGIES in BLANKETS (a Captain Cooks creation)

He’s back! again… I am so loving all of this company in my land galley lately.  This time my guy offered to make us his special Pigs in a Blanket.  Some sharp cheddar, weiner wraps (found in your dairy section) and this time he thought we should use meat from our fave local butcher. Cavicchi’s makes the best sausage bites, little meatballs, gluten free with the perfect blend of spices.  This time, mild Italian. To keep with the simple-no-oven-in-my-galley focus…

STOVE TOP PITA

STOVE TOP PITA

Let me begin by saying my partner/Captain is a bread-lovin’ Frenchman. Bread with breakfast Bread with lunch Bread with dinner …and all the in between (with wine, cheese or just by itself) I came across this blog post from Sailing Chance a while ago and thought – wow – I can do this. and… Pitas = BBQ pizza (Captain’s second favourite food) I am spoiled at home having a bread machine… just throw everything in, press the setting and ‘voila’…
