ZUCCHINI GNOCCHI with CREAMY SAUCE two ways

ZUCCHINI GNOCCHI with CREAMY SAUCE two ways

True confessions from the Galley.  I’ve never made gnocchi before.  Never eaten gnocchi before.  I’m not sure why exactly except I always had the impression that it was some sort of doughy tasteless pasta.  Boy, was I wrong! As I was making the gnocchi, I kept sampling the little ‘slugs’ as they rose to the top of the boiling water. Shameful I know, but I couldn’t believe how tasty they were.  Add this to the rich creamy corn sauce and…

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…

MELINA’S HALUSKI

MELINA’S HALUSKI

When I received this recipe from Melina, I immediately thought comfort food.  It’s simple in ingredients and preparation and reminds me of something a Gramma would make.  And sure enough she mentioned it was a favourite recipe handed down from her Eastern-European Gramma to her Momma to her, a dish she falls back on time and time again.  Oh the memories that must evoke! So here I am at the beginning of spring, making what I would normally call a…

PAT’S PERFECT PASTA (plus bonus recipe for Mushroom and Sage Pasta Dish)

PAT’S PERFECT PASTA (plus bonus recipe for Mushroom and Sage Pasta Dish)

Have you ever tried to make your own pasta? Friends have told me it’s super easy.  Recent guests to our humble seaside home said they make pasta for lobster filled ravioli….oh, be still my seafood loving beating heart! And recently someone from social media posted a picture of his outdoor pasta making.  So, I thought to myself, if he can easily make it in a camping environment, I can certainly make it in my teeny tiny galley.  Then low and…

EASY SLOW COOKER MAC ‘n CHEESE (a guest in my galley)

EASY SLOW COOKER MAC ‘n CHEESE (a guest in my galley)

Now that we’ve moved back to Nova Scotia my son Luke gets to visit us more often.  And he’s such a great helper, always asking  what he can do to assist.  One weekend he spent the time putting together some shelves so I could organize our wee place a bit better. Another time he spent the afternoon with Francois clearing the brush around Duck Pond, our newly discovered eco-system.  We knew there was a stream that ran along the side…

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…
