EASY SUMMERY LAMB BOWLS

Good day to you my galley friends.  Following a recent guest from away visit, I have a very tasty meal for you.  Full of Greek-inspired flavours, super easy to throw together, it was the perfect hot summer time dish to offer our friends. Couscous is handy to have on hand because all it needs is boiling water or broth, five minutes of wait time, some […]

HALIFAX DONAIR GRILLED CHEESE

Hello there my Galley friends.  So very glad you dropped by.  I was in the mood today for an easy supper, so created this little number for you to try. Very much a take on traditional grilled cheese but with Middle Eastern flavours, in the style of a Mexican quesadilla. Load these as you wish. More cheese. More veggies. Double up the tasty donair meat […]

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 […]

GREEK INSPIRED MEATBALLS

Just because I’m not a football fan (oh the shame!) doesn’t mean I can’t offer you something yummy to nosh on during this year’s big game. 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 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!   […]

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 […]
