JUNE RECIPE ROUND-UP

JUNE RECIPE ROUND-UP

Since I’ve been posting these recipe round-ups it’s been fun watching the patterns of the most popular searches and boy oh boy you guys have been grilling and from what I can tell camping/RV’ing/boating up a storm.  It’s all about the barbecue and Omnia cooking this month.  Not to exclude you who are without the little stove-top miracle of an oven because you know I will always give you options for conventional land-based ovens but it’s obvious by the number…

FIG and CAMEMBERT GRILLED CHEESE with CRISPY MUSHROOM SALAD

FIG and CAMEMBERT GRILLED CHEESE with CRISPY MUSHROOM SALAD

I’m loving this sandwich/salad combo that was inspired by one of  our recent meal delivery recipes.  The sweet fig jam, ooy gooy creamy cheese and toasty crispy bread was a sensory delight.  Then you have the tangy/sweet-ish salad dressing over fresh greens.  But what drove it over the top was the addition of crispy mushrooms that have been tossed, then grilled in parmesan and bread crumbs.  Heavenly perfection. Just a few easy steps, beginning with slicing the mushrooms, then tossing…

LOBSTER VOL au VENT with ORANGE COGNAC SAUCE

LOBSTER VOL au VENT with ORANGE COGNAC SAUCE

It’s lobster season here in our part of Nova Scotia and what a treat it is for us to be living just a few minutes walk from a fishermans’ wharf.  That’s right!  We can walk whenever we wish but the trick is, we have to be there when the boat comes in and before the refrigerated truck takes the catch of the  day away. Our first time we were a little too late.  Our second, we scored a sinkful of…

SAVOURY BAKED NOODLES (KUGEL)

SAVOURY BAKED NOODLES (KUGEL)

I love kugel, especially the savoury kind.  Well, in truth I love anything with pasta and cheese.  It’s the ultimate comfort food especially welcomed now that we are heading into some chilly days.  I call it my hibernation food. This next recipe was made to be a complete meal with spinach and mushrooms and lots of dairy for protein.  I baked it no-oven-galley-style in my stove top Omnia but for you land folks it easily transforms to a more traditional…

FRESH TOMATO, ZUCCHINI and HALLOUMI BAKE

FRESH TOMATO, ZUCCHINI and HALLOUMI BAKE

Here I am with another yummy fresh tomato recipe.  This time I baked them topped with Halloumi cheese in my little Omnia stove top oven. I suppose I could have made it a one pot wonder but tonight I was feeling cavalier and used a saucepan to simmer the tomato mixture.  Two pots to clean up – oh what a reckless Galley Kat I am! My galley cookware takes so little cleaning up that it was worth using. Once the…

SALISBURY STEAK (SLOW COOKER)

SALISBURY STEAK (SLOW COOKER)

This was one of those ‘show stopper’ dinners.  Not at all a gourmet-ish type of meal, made with lowly ground beef and a simple gravy, yet somehow when we sat down to dine and took that first bite….wow!  The flavour of the gravy was amazing, the beef patties were surprisingly tender and that I had walked away four hours earlier to do other things made it such a treat. Instead of using a packaged gravy mix, I made my own….

PHILLY CHEESE STEAK

PHILLY CHEESE STEAK

Although a lot of our meals are vegetarian, even vegan, we are anything but against animal protein.  And there are times when I actually crave a good feed of steak.  Today is that day. This will make an excellent boat meal once we are back on the water.  I even used one of our galley cooking pans to sauté the onions, pepper and mushrooms. Next, a healthy sprinkling of salt and pepper for the beef. And finally a little stir…

LENTIL MUSHROOM SHEPHERD’S PIE

LENTIL MUSHROOM SHEPHERD’S PIE

Captain Francois’ comment about tonight’s supper: “If this is vegetarian, you can make it for me anytime!”  Healthy, meatless and really easy to throw together, I made it stove-top in my Omnia Oven. A little sautéing, a splash of wine and some seasonings. The addition of some greens, then packed into a baking dish, topped with potatoes and in just a few minutes it was ready to enjoy.  Sprinkle with grated cheese and bread crumbs before baking if you wish…

GRILLED STEAK, DRUNKEN MUSHROOMS and BLUE CHEESE ROASTED POTATOES

GRILLED STEAK, DRUNKEN MUSHROOMS and BLUE CHEESE ROASTED POTATOES

This was one of those ‘super-suppers-at-anchor’ kind of meals.  A chilly damp day, lots of boat work and two very hungry sailors in need of a hearty dinner.  It was also  collaborative  – my fave way of cooking, sharing the work.  Captain ‘manned’ the grill (steak and potatoes) while I did some serious damage down in the galley (gettin’ the mushrooms drunk). Anyway, it was an awesome supper.  Tasty taters, mushrooms all drunk and saucy and that perfectly grilled hunk…
