STOVE TOP ENGLISH MUFFINS

STOVE TOP ENGLISH MUFFINS

I’ve had this hanging around in my data base for ages and I now wonder why I waited SO long to try it.  Got the recipe from another boater who blogged about something or other (I honestly can’t remember what it was about…so long ago) and in the conversation he mentioned making English muffins.  You mean in your boat oven I asked?  Stove top was his answer.  Well, said I. Please share!  And he did and here I am well…

CONDENSED CREAM of MUSHROOM SOUP

CONDENSED CREAM of MUSHROOM SOUP

I’m really lovin’ this recipe for so many reasons. No preservatives. No MSG hidden in the ingredient list. You can control the amount of sodium. The best part is that you can add as many mushrooms as you wish, unlike some condensed creamed soups where you have to search for the bits .  And it tastes even better than the commercial brands.   CONDENSED CREAM of MUSHROOM SOUP what you will need 1 cup fresh mushrooms, chopped 2 Tbsp butter…

HOMEMADE WAXLESS CANDLE

HOMEMADE WAXLESS CANDLE

Hey there Galley Peeps. Today’s post is all about economy, tiny living, with a little off grid thrown into the mix. I came across a super idea for inexpensive candles using things you likely already have on hand. A candle on a boat, any open flame really, is something that has to have constant attention. Small spaces and perpetual motion mean taking extra care, but in the evening I love adding to the ambiance of a romantic cockpit meal with…

GALLEY KAT IRISH CREAM

GALLEY KAT IRISH CREAM

I’ve been a very very bad Kat!  Having an addictive personallity means there are some things I just don’t keep on hand. Sea Salt and Black Pepper Chips for one.  Another, which I refuse to buy any more is Irish Cream Liqueur.  I won’t mention any particular brand.  They are all the same and all evil.  Just thinking about them makes my belly ache…they are that rich, and that good! We have been invited to a Saint Patrick’s Day celebration…

HOMEMADE REFRIED BEANS

HOMEMADE REFRIED BEANS

I’m all about convenience, especially when it comes to cooking in my tiny kitchen/galley. But economy also plays a very important role, economy of effort balanced with cost. This is where my little pressure cooker comes into play. It would have been faster to just open a can of beans for this next recipe, but with a bit of fore-planning, I can pop in some dried beans with water and any seasonings I wish and 45 minutes later I have…

GOOP – the recipe

GOOP – the recipe

I honestly don’t know what else to call this…pan release maybe? not Pam because I can’t spray it. The main issue is not what to call it but does it work?  Onboard as you by now know, I don’t have an oven but when one is needed I use my little stove-top Omnia Oven.  We found it so useful that Captain suggested we have one for land use and one for the boat.  The only problem with it is that unless it…

JIFFY CORNBREAD CLONE MIX

JIFFY CORNBREAD CLONE MIX

I’m not much for commercially prepared mixes but I do love the convenience of them. Part of my provisioning strategy is to prepare dry packets of our favourite ‘mixes’ so I can just add the liquids. Sometimes to save washing up, I even add the wet ingredients right in the bag. JIFFY CORNBREAD CLONE MIX 1 cup corn meal 1/2 cup all purpose flour 2 tbsp sugar 1 tsp sea salt 1 tbsp baking powder 1/2 tsp baking soda When…

HOMEMADE KETCHUP

HOMEMADE KETCHUP

This is another example of trying to make healthier choices. We don’t use ketchup often but when we do it’s good to have a bit more control over the amount of added salt and sugar… Homemade Ketchup 1 6-ounce can tomato paste 1/4 cup agave syrup 1/2 cup white vinegar 1/4 cup water 1 tablespoon sugar 1 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon onion powder 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder   Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
