ZUCCHINI GNOCCHI with CREAMY SAUCE two ways

True confessions from the Galley.  I’ve never made gnocchi before.  Never eaten gnocchi before.  I’m not sure why exactly except I always had the impression that it was some sort of doughy tasteless pasta.  Boy, was I wrong! As I was making the gnocchi, I kept sampling the little ‘slugs’ as they rose to the top of the boiling water. Shameful I know, but I […]

SPANAKOPITA BOMBS

Hello there my Galley Peeps. I’m back to my regular weekly routine with one more recipe to add to your Galley Kat Bomb-making series.  Very similar to my SPANAKOPITA GRILLED CHEESE but in this form…tangy flavourful filling wrapped in an easy to make dough…it’s more portable.  Reducing the size as I did with the BREAKFAST BOMBS you have an on-the-go little hand pie. These are perfect […]

LENTIL POTATO BAKE

Hello Galley Folks.  I’ve been working on some not-so-meaty dishes for you.  I try to strike a balance between animal/fish protein and more plant-based meals at least 3 times each week with a soup or chowder meal thrown into the mix.  Plus I know that in a few days we will be so turkey-ed out that we’ll need a little belly break.  This very repeatable […]

Just throw meat and all  into a big bowl, dive in with both hands (properly washed of course) and squish all of those aromatic ingredients together. Serve warm with some tzatziki for dipping and a side salad. An icy […]

GREEK LAMB STEW (pressure cooker version)

As some of you know we have been homeless for the past few months.  Our condo in Montreal sold and closed the 12th October.  All our wordly possessions were packed into an 8’x8’x16’ POD moving container which is now waiting for delivery this coming week. During the transition of closing in Montreal and closing here in Nova Scotia we have been staying with my daughter, […]

BAKED EGGS IN ROASTED PEPPERS

Chilly rainy days mean cooked breakfast aboard R.E.D.  I had some fresh greens, peppers and farm eggs just begging to be turned into something belly warming. The greens I used were a mix of baby kale and arugula which gave a more crispy result.  Small chopped spinach leaves work well too.   Choose your peppers wisely if using the Omnia stove top oven.  They should […]

BAKED GREEK SHRIMP with TOMATOES and FETA

Now that the weather is improving…slowly…but any improvement is welcomed… I’m beginning to make plans for summer boat life.  This means easy quick meals, prepared with simple fresh ingredients. Tonight’s meal was one of those winners…so much so that although I made enough for two servings we both wished we could have gone back for seconds. Onions and lots of garlic sent wafts of intoxicating […]

BATSARIA (Greek Spinach Pie)

Batsaria = Greek Spinach Pie = Phyllo-less Spanakopita = Mon Dieu Delicious. Being the Galley Kat that I am, that is, always trying to find recipes that can be reproduced in our little boat galley, I have been on the hunt for more hearty tasty dishes that can be cooked in my Omnia stove top oven.  And have I ever found a good one!   […]
