Good day to you, my galley friends. I’m back to offer you a little sweet treat this week.  I can’t stress enough now easy this recipe is…and moist…and super delicious. It has just the right amount of sweetness so doesn’t really require any toppings, although I did enjoy it with a little dollop of coconut cream. Usually a cake of this size I would portion […]

Cabbage Rolls are one of those meals that screams comfort.  Maybe it’s because it brings back memories of my Mom’s version with it’s rich tomato sauce, tender cabbage and savoury meat filling.  I don’t make them often…well, hardly ever…and have never tried them while in my tiny boat galley because it always seemed like so much work. When going through some Friend’s Faves submission, I […]

Good day Galley friends. I’ve been working on some easy fall-type recipes for you, now that the weather has a slight chill in the air.  We survived hurricane Fiona which for us, here on the south shore Nova Scotia, was just no power and no internet.  The other regions of Atlantic Canada sadly were much harder hit.  I used the down time to plan for […]

Greetings to you my Galley friends.  I was craving something other than a bowl of cereal for breakfast but didn’t want to heat up my land galley.  Out came my trusty Omnia stove top oven.  A bowl of traditional pancake batter came together easily and I had the remains of fresh blueberries my daughter and her two monkeys brought me from a berry picking adventure […]

Good day to all you Galley friends, this week, directly from our camper.  We are enjoying a few days away from our little home by the sea at a camp ground…also by the sea. I brought with me the ingredients for making some of my protein packed bites…this time made with canned tuna.  They are super easy to throw together. Make a great little road […]

Hello there my Galley Folks.  Glad you stopped by today because I have a tasty little casserole for you to try.  I made it as a side dish for Easter dinner and F loved it so much I had to make it again…and again…and again. There’s something about the buttery crunchy topping and the custardy sweetness of the corn in each bite that makes it […]

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 […]

Hi there my Galley friends.  Good to have you drop by today.  I have for you a tasty little number, perfect for breakfast, brunch or easy supper.  And you can make it a day ahead, all ready to pop in the oven. It’s in the style of bread pudding with a base of bread, milk and eggs but definitely on the savoury side….with all the […]

MUJENDRA (Cypriot rice and lentils)

This week I’m in plant-based heaven again.  I was enjoying a weekend morning cocooning in bed doing catch-up on some reading while having the TV on for some background noise and what do I hear?…’leftovers’?  Got my attention it did. The recipe had a name very similar to something I made for you a while ago…MUJADDARA which is what it’s called in Middle Eastern culinary circles. […]

You know by now how much I love leftovers.  On the boat it was something I planned for when creating meals.  We got into the habit of eating the leftovers for breakfast the next day…perfect start because our evening meal was typically the heaviest so those extra calories served us well for the sailing day ahead. Now that we are land-based for the winter months […]
