MEDITERRANEAN-STYLE LEMON CHICKEN

MEDITERRANEAN-STYLE LEMON CHICKEN

Time to add a little heat to the galley today.  Another chilly rainy day  and I have a good book to curl up with.  No time to be messing around with time consuming meals. Six chicken thighs and a handful of vegetables, some olives and lemon for a Mediterranean flair and we had a tasty meal in a little over one-half hour. Being the frugal Galley Kat that I am, I shredded the remaining two thighs, dumped them back into…

MUJADDARA

MUJADDARA

My guy likes pretty much everything I make.  He never complains about my frequent dalliance into the vegetarian, vegan world although I know he loves meaty dishes. But when I get an unsolicited comment like ‘this one’s a keeper Kathy’, I sit up and take notice. The flavours in this Mediterranean inspired dish are wonderful, the crispy fried onion the perfect complement and I think we have found a new favourite comfort food. If you are lucky enough to have…

CAPTAIN COOKS: BAKED HALIBUT in LEMON CREAM SAUCE

CAPTAIN COOKS: BAKED HALIBUT in LEMON CREAM SAUCE

He’s on a roll.  Second Captain Cooks in less than a week (his last creation here).  This time he made us an incredibly delicious fish dish in my daughter’s kitchen as we are currently homeless and at the time we hadn’t yet found a home for our boat. It is super easy to prepare.  Just season the fish well… Prepare the sauce and let it spend a few minutes  in the oven. Now that we are back on the water,…

LEMONY TORTELLINI SOUP

LEMONY TORTELLINI SOUP

We’ve both been a little ‘under the weather’ lately and were craving something warm, comforting and healing for supper tonight.  Tortellini Soup (my favourite recipe here) always does it for me but I didn’t have any sausage on hand.  Lots of carrots, spinach and celery but sadly, no tomatoes either. Two juicy lemons were substituted  in and I think I now have a new favourite soup. A little sautéing  of vegetables first.  The addition of lemon zest came next.  Seven…

COD with LEMON CREAM SAUCE and SHREDDED BRUSSELS SPROUTS

COD with LEMON CREAM SAUCE and SHREDDED BRUSSELS SPROUTS

I have a two-for-one post for you today.  Tasty, tangy cod poached in a creamy sauce… …and a crunchy vegetable sauté. Once all my ingredients were collected, I prepared the Brussel sprouts and carrots stir-up then set aside to keep warm. If you, like us, have just one burner to use, you could prepare the sauce before the vegetables, then there would be just the few  minutes of poaching before serving. The wonderful creamy lemony fish and the crunchy vegetables…

LEMON CREAM PIE

LEMON CREAM PIE

No gluten! No dairy! No sugar! No cooking! No kidding! I’m not one to seek out specifically gluten/or dairy/ or sugar-free recipes but this one caught my attention.  I love anything lemon. It makes  a just enough. Perfect for my little spring form pan and tiny refrigerator. Perfect to serve for a small dinner gathering and perfect for the two of us for several days. But how could something this good, so lemony, so sweet, be healthy I had to…

LEMON GINGER MUFFINS

LEMON GINGER MUFFINS

I  finally took the time to use my new Omnia stove top oven insert and I must say that I love it!  Cleaning up in our little galley is always a challenge with the tiny sink and hand pump faucet.  We’ve made lots of improvements to our little chalet-on-the-water so that our summer live-aboard life is as comfortable as possible but I still dream of the day when I can wash both hands at once. Anyway, back to my Omnia.  I…

MUSHROOM TARRAGON LEMON PATÉ

MUSHROOM TARRAGON LEMON PATÉ

I wanted to make an easy healthy appetizer for a recent docktails soirée but first I had to run it by my faithful taste tester.  I can always count on Francois to give a reasonably candid evaluation. Well, he loved it.  I meaned LOVED it! And the weirdest part was he thought it was creton, a typical French Canadian rillettes or terrine type of spread made primarily of pork and is quite often very fatty.  Well, this was neither fatty…
