I did take the time though to put together a list of your favourite Galley Kat recipes for the month of May. […]

BANANA BREAD MUFFINS with MAPLE BACON COMPOUND BUTTER

  Keeping simple galley methods in mind I transformed my favourite banana bread recipe into individual muffins baked in my Omnia Stove Top Oven.  A dozen perfect little hand treats resulted.  What made them even better was the addition of Maple Bacon Butter smeared over their already rich moist warm surface.  Sadly they never last very long once Captain gets wind of their existence but […]

CAPTAIN COOKS: WINE BRAISED RABBIT LEGS with MAPLE ROASTED CARROTS

After the pleasant occasion of the Captain’s Family Festivus (story here), we decided we wanted two more special guest-worthy meals before we dig in and get serious about pre-spring projects. Mine was a simple Lobster and Pan-Roasted Corn Chowder (recipe here) for New Year’s Eve. Captain wanted to cook us some rabbit. Apparently something from his past cooking ventures that had stuck in his head and […]

MAPLE CORNBREAD

On my list of ‘what-Mom-used-to-make’ fave dishes is Johnny Cake. I always associate it with colder weather (we always ate ‘seasonal’) With American Thanksgiving approaching I thought I would try out a new recipe for cornbread. This one is lighter and a bit sweeter than I remember Mom’s being plus I like the addition of buttermilk and corn kernels. As this is a boat galley […]
