HONEY ROAST DUCK (a Captain Cooks creation)

HONEY ROAST DUCK (a Captain Cooks creation)

Technically this recipe doesn’t fit my simple boat recipe criteria.  Yes, it was simple but it does require an oven of which I have none onboard.  But….when my man says he wants to cook a duck and the results are so freakin’ delicious I felt I needed to share it with you all.  There is a possibility that it could be cooked in a similar fashion tented with foil on a barbecue but we haven’t tried that yet so conventional…

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…

FRESH DIGBY SCALLOP and GRILLED CORN CEVICHE

The not so obvious, 2. if on the water and back at the dock, the aroma of oranges on the grill may bring forth guests for cocktails, it was that intoxicating. and… 3. if on land camping or RV-ing, #2 above may apply…

APPLE CRANBERRY CAKE

APPLE CRANBERRY CAKE

Now for something seasonal… I’m thinking apples…cranberries… I don’t eat desserts often… I try as best I can to avoid a lot of sugar in my diet… But it is nice sometimes to have a taste of something sweet after dinner Or as an afternoon snack. In my little galley of one burner, one sink and about six inches of counter space (divided into 2 x 3″ spaces), there is no oven. In anticipation of our first season onboard I…
