MUJENDRA (Cypriot rice and lentils)

This week I’m in plant-based heaven again.  I was enjoying a weekend morning cocooning in bed doing catch-up on some reading while having the TV on for some background noise and what do I hear?…’leftovers’?  Got my attention it did. The recipe had a name very similar to something I made for you a while ago…MUJADDARA which is what it’s called in Middle Eastern culinary circles. […]

Captain had a hunger on for pizza so I threw together this next recipe using my […]

CHEESY POTATO CAKES

I’m all about making it easy on myself in my little galley.  Leftovers used to be considered a four letter word to me but now I purposely make extra so that there will be enough for another meal.  Quite often what was leftover from an evening meal will become the next day’s breakfast. In the case of this next recipe I had made enough mashed […]

THE PERFECT SALAD

 This salad was a progression to perfection.  I’m really liking the French way of first whisking the vinegrette directly in the salad bowl, then layering beginning with the least fragile ingredients and topping with the greens.  When it comes time to serve, just toss. The greens will have stayed separate from the vinegrette and not all wilty and soppy Perfect! THE PERFECT SALAD what you […]

WAFFLED MASHED POTATOES with SMOKED SALMON and YOGURT

I’m on a leftover-mashed-potato kick this week and am realizing there are SO many ways to transform them for another meal so that they don’t really resemble their original state. Like a potato disguise. ….I pulled together my ingredients …hauled out my little boat waffle iron.       …and was very pleased with the results. …potatoes in disguise. WAFFLED MASHED POTATOES with SMOKED SALMON […]

PASTA FRITTERS with SRIRACHA MAYO

Is there any one like me who gets excited over leftover pasta? These types of meal really speak to my ‘economy of efforts’ boat mentality. It may take a bit of organizing and a little extra planning of your meals, but if you are going to cook up some pasta why not use the energy once? (effort, fuel or electricity, and that precious water)   […]
