GALLEY CAKE MIX

GALLEY CAKE MIX

Continuing on with simplifying my life in the kitchen/galley, I have a super fun recipe for you this week. Those who have been following along for a while, know how much I dislike commercial preparations, preferring instead to make my own whenever possible and practical. Growing up in a small farming community with a father who always preached ‘the closer to nature, the better’ and in a time when convenience foods were just becoming popular, we ate mostly locally grown…

OLIVIA’S MAKE AHEAD PASTA BAKE

OLIVIA’S MAKE AHEAD PASTA BAKE

As promised, here is a very tasty casserole-type dish recipe  sent in by one of my Galley Peeps, Olivia.  It uses one can of commercial condensed soup or why not try my homemade version (GALLEY CREAM OF ‘WHATEVER’ SOUP ). 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 put the prepared casserole to bed in the refrigerator today and tomorrow you bake it…

GALLEY BRIOCHE BREAD

GALLEY BRIOCHE BREAD

I’m having a pile of fun in my land galley this week.  I can’t go anywhere anyway for obvious reasons because our province is still in it’s very early stages of loosening restrictions from the dreaded virus.  Hiking trails are open, as are parks.  We’re lucky to have a yard to be able enjoy fresh air and movement and it’s spring so there’s no shortage of things to do preparing the garden for planting.  Every day I check the weather….

GALLEY CINNAMON ROLLS

GALLEY CINNAMON ROLLS

How many of you have been feeling challenged lately?  You know what I mean? Limitations due to this global covid-19 pandemic. Restrictions placed on social contact. Restrictions placed on shopping. And when you do carefully venture to find even basics, certain items are either in short supply or plainly non-existant. I’m actually finding the challenges moderately exciting.  What can I do to limit possible exposure? If I don’t have a certain ingredient, what can I use to substitute?   Can…

SHELLEY’S AMAZING BAGELS

SHELLEY’S AMAZING BAGELS

A friend sent me this recipe and honestly, I can’t get enough of them, and I can’t for the life of me imagine why I would ever buy bagels again. Far too easy…and by that I mean really easy.  I clocked myself from ingredient mixing to snapping photos. Thirty minutes folks. THIRTY! And that included twenty minute oven time. My only complaint is that the recipe makes just four…but that’s simply nit picking isn’t it?  The beauty of them too is…

LOU’S ROASTED CAULIFLOWER with MUSHROOM SAUCE

LOU’S ROASTED CAULIFLOWER with MUSHROOM SAUCE

I’m getting all fancy with my veggies in the galley today.  Not time consuming fancy.  Nor am I using weird and wonderful ingredients.  But by the time I finished making, then consuming this ultra-delicious dish, it felt very fancified.  I even poured us a glass of crisp white wine to go with to feel extra fancy pants fancy. A lowly head of cauliflower, a package of mushrooms were the main ingredients.  The most ‘exotic’ ingredient was miso paste which you…

APPLE PIE BOMBS

APPLE PIE BOMBS

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Things are exploding in my galley again today folks, thanks to my friend Joan for the initial idea of JOAN’S TACO BOMBS that started me on this bomb-making quest.  We now have one more lunch, dinner or appetizer type bomb to add to the repertoire with SPANAKOPITA BOMBS for a taste bud explosion.  And we have BREAKFAST BOMBS to begin the day with a bang . Now for a little dessert bomb to perfectly round out this…

IRISH ROUND-UP + bonus recipe

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Happy March to you all, Galley Peeps.  For most of us in the northern parts of the world it’s a month we all look forward to, regardless if we’ve had our last snow fall or not.  We know that gradually those dark winter days will turn into days that are longer and longer, warmer and warmer. Several birthdays to celebrate including my own this month…I try to pretend it doesn’t exist but it seems to…

SPANAKOPITA BOMBS

SPANAKOPITA BOMBS

Hello there my Galley Peeps. I’m back to my regular weekly routine with one more recipe to add to your Galley Kat Bomb-making series.  Very similar to my SPANAKOPITA GRILLED CHEESE but in this form…tangy flavourful filling wrapped in an easy to make dough…it’s more portable.  Reducing the size as I did with the BREAKFAST BOMBS you have an on-the-go little hand pie. These are perfect for brunch, boxed lunches, picnics or a little game day appetizer…especially when paired with some…

MUFFULETTA – sandwich of the Cajun Gods

MUFFULETTA – sandwich of the Cajun Gods

Happy belated Mardi Gras to you my Galley Peeps.  I hadn’t planned on writing this one up for you guys because, well, it’s just a sandwich. The plan was for one more ‘bomb’ recipe (my last two JOAN’S TACO BOMBS and BREAKFAST BOMBS in case you missed them) but someone asked for the bread part of this recipe so I thought, why not?  It really was a very delicious, very full and meaty cheesy for ‘just’ a sandwich. Super simple in construction…bread…
