REFRIED BEAN SOUP

Good day to you my Galley Friends.  Within a week we will be heading out on our first of the year camping trip.  We aren’t going too far but it will be good to check out another part of our beautiful east coast province…this time, the eastern shore. I don’t have a lot to do to make our RV travel ready but I have been […]

RHUBARB MUFFINS

Since the overwhleming success of the Rhubarb Cocktail (find the recipe here.  If you haven’t already tried it…you MUST), I’ve been in love with the rhubarb/lime/ginger combo.  So I took one of my favourite Galley Kat muffin recipes Lemon Ginger Muffins (recipe here) and transformed it into the ideal tea-time treat.  The perfect combination of tart rhubarb, a hint of lime and the bite of ginger. […]

CRANBERRY LIME MUFFINS

So why am I still baking in a stove top oven when I have a perfectly good land galley oven to use you might ask?  I don’t honestly know, except that it’s so darned easy.  It doesn’t take any longer than a conventional oven.  Clean up is about the same amount of effort and I love the economy of not heating an entire appliance for […]

FRESH DIGBY SCALLOP and GRILLED CORN CEVICHE

Fresh is the name of the game here in the galley today.  Our local market just got in some fresh (never before frozen, or soaked in sodium tripolyphosphate) Digby scallops all plump and juicy.  Some green tomatoes and farm fresh corn on the cob came together to produce our supper tonight. I was feeling a little oink-ish and bought a whole pound of the little […]

TASTY CARNITAS with ROASTED CORN SALSA

When Captain makes a request for something specific from the galley, the Kat does her best to comply.  Francois has been asking for pulled pork anything for some time now so tonight I broke out the pressure cooker to assuage his cravings.  The important thing to remember is that the cut of meat has to be a rather fatty one.  I’ve tried to make pulled […]

CRANBERRY MIMOSA

What goes better with holiday festivities than a pretty cocktail.  Changing out the usual orange juice with cranberry juice adds that little extra something for your next brunch gathering. Adding a rim of lime tinged sugar, a few fresh cranberries and some sprigs of fresh rosemary makes such an attractive presentation. To your health! Happy New Year Galley Peeps.  May 2017 bring nothing but good […]

SPARKLING SANGRIA with MIXED FRUIT, GINGER and MINT

It’s been difficult for us as retired folk to keep track of the passing days. When I ask Francois what day it is, he usually responds with the month or the season.  The only reason we keep track if it’s a weekend or not is to avoid having to face overpopulated markets and shopping centres and frustrating traffic jams.  But I do miss our after […]

PAN SEARED SCALLOPS with GREENS and GINGER VINAIGRETTE

I don’t think I could ever get tired of eating scallops.  Just writing this makes me want to make this easy salad again and again and again.  Light plump bites, sprinkled with just a touch of salt flakes and a grind of pepper served over a fresh salad.  The beauty of this dish is the scallops can be served either warm straight from the pan […]

FRIED AVOCADO with WASABE LIME DIPPING SAUCE

Sometimes it’s unavoidable for me not to dirty a pile of dishes, but when the outcome is delicious it somehow makes all the effort worthwhile.  This was one of those times.  My little galley sink was full and the hand pump faucet really had its workout today. Because  all the mixing, dipping and breading could be done in stages  and the sauce made ahead I […]

GRILLED SALMON with EASY LIME BUTTER SAUCE

Cockpit dining doesn’t get much easier than this.  Remember that Quinoa Cabbage Salad (recipe here) that was so yummy?  Well, it was even better the next day.  And because it was Captain’s turn to grill, all I had to do was whip up the lime butter, pour some chilled wine and enjoy the view. GRILLED SALMON with EASY LIME BUTTER SAUCE what you will need […]
