IRISH ROUND-UP + bonus recipe

IRISH ROUND-UP + bonus recipe

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Happy March to you all, Galley Peeps.  For most of us in the northern 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. Several birthdays to celebrate including my own this month…I try to pretend it doesn’t exist but it seems to…

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…

CAPTAIN COOKS: Grilled Beer Marinated Ham

CAPTAIN COOKS: Grilled Beer Marinated Ham

My man is at it again and voluntarily too. After the encouragingly huge success of his Marinated Ginger Tuna Steak (recipe link here), he asked to enter my galley arena once more. We recently enjoyed an evening with a group of boat friends at a pot luck house party. Someone’s contribution was ham cooked in beer. Divinely delicious! …which inspired Captain’s latest creation.   GRILLED BEER MARINATED HAM STEAK what you’ll need Ham steaks, about 6 Captain used a piece…

How about a little Mexican Irish Fusion?… Tacos and Corned Beef?… …with a little Guinnes Dipping Sauce on the side? “Pourquoi pas?!” I say with my best French accent. …an interesting way to use up some of that corned beef from yesterday’s Saint Patrick’s Day Corned Beef and Cabbage feast… Have I peeked your interest? Well just take a look at this following recipe… It may seem like a strange combination of ingredients, and I must admit I was sceptical…

MARCH – a good month for the IRISH

MARCH – a good month for the IRISH

Let’s start this month off properly shall we? Here in the Great White North we are fed up with snow and ice. Weather forecasts for March are looking grim as well. So to get the March-is-for-the-Irish party started here is a little Guinness trivia for you…       1. What’s in a name? A stout by any other moniker might indeed taste as sweet. Guinness’ dark, creamy brew was originally called Porter, and later Stout Porter, to denote its…

CAPTAIN COOKS – BABY BACK BEER RIBS

CAPTAIN COOKS – BABY BACK BEER RIBS

Our weather here in the Great White North, has been on a meteorological roller coaster lately. (actually, Montreal isn’t exactly so far North but it is great and white) Yesterday it was 0 ° C (32 ° F) and tonight it is supposed to dip down to -22 ° C (-7.6 ° F) Mother Nature is such a tease! Anyway, yesterday gave us some hope that grilling season isn’t too far far away. …and we are just going to ignore,…

MIGHTY SPICY BAERSAR

MIGHTY SPICY BAERSAR

Sometimes all of this cold frosty and very icey weather calls for a spicy and hearty cocktail.

CAPTAIN COOKS – WHITE BEAN and HAM SOUP

CAPTAIN COOKS – WHITE BEAN and HAM SOUP

…Big surprise… no Pillsbury dough was sacrificed in the process! Captain François is diving into this galley cooking with such enthusiasm! Today I was allowed in for a brief period to bake some boat bread but then I had to retreat. I was allowed to take photos but that was it. He even made our preparing-dinner-cocktails (now that would be a great future post! – Captain’s Cocktails) WHITE BEAN and HAM SOUP Serves 8 2 cans of 19 oz white…
