MAKE AHEAD FREEZER OATMEAL COOKIES

Good day to you Galley folks.  You can thank my daughter and her current housing ‘condition’ for today’s recipe.  They have recently purchased a home that needs renovating and instead of continuing to live in their tiny apartment with two active monkeys they decided to move into their basement while contractors make the home liveable.  They created an ingenious set-up in the room that will […]

HAMBURGER HELPER MIX

Comfort food in a jar is what F calls this. It was a rather chilly rainy time in the camper.  We had to fire up the heater to take all the humidity from the air it was so damp.  The day was spent mostly indoors….that day I made my Soldier Cookies, remember? Well, I had a little two-cup jar of Hamburger Helper mix that I […]

CORN MUFFIN MIX – an update

Hi there folks.  I realize that I’ve been a wee bit absent lately.  I get that way sometimes, feeling my inspiration lacking but every time I start thinking about spring and what form it might take – specifically, picking up our little land trawler, RED II camper extrordinaire – I get motivated. Planning is my thing and at the moment I’m making lists of what […]

One bowl and a baking dish is all you need and what makes it super easy is no boiling the pasta ahead of time.  You […]

GRILLED STEAK SANDWICHES with BLUE CHEESE SLAW

I wasn’t going to bother posting this.  Grilled steak isn’t news.  Nor is salad…although I couldn’t stop digging my fork into this one.  Blue cheese and crunchy cabbage…really addictive!   Then I realized just how great it is to have in your back pocket of summer recipes. It’s a make ahead kind of meal that you can pack up for a picnic, or take for […]

MAKE AHEAD SALAD

Recently I came across an interesting blog post from one of my faves Shutterbean She really spoke to the always-oraganized-person-I-wish-I-were-but-never-quite-get-there. What I did take away from the gist of the article was her way of eating more salads. Onboard our boat fresh greens aren’t always available and when we do get a chance to provision veggies the greens are the most fragile to store properly. […]
