NOT-SO-NOODLEY TUNA CASSEROLE

We came back from a recent visit to the doctor with orders for one of us (no names will be mentioned) to cut back on white potatoes, white bread, white rice and pasta.  A 25% cut back he said. So this Galley Kat got to searching through the recipe data base, the pantry and refrigerator to find options for tonight’s supper.  Well!!! Do I ever […]

EAST COAST HODGE PODGE with SEAFOOD

How can you resist all the fresh produce these days?  I certainly couldn’t on a recent trip to our local farmers’ market.  A big bunch of carrots, new potatoes, fresh green and yellow beans, some shelled peas made the base of one of my favourite East Coast dishes.   Hodge Podge is a sort of soup, sort of stew depending if you make it thickened […]

EASY CHEESY FAUX-TATO CASSEROLE

Today’s post is all about the cauliflower. So many things can be made with this unassuming vegetable. I think it’s OK to call a vegetable unassuming. One of my favourites is to use it to make a faux alfredo sauce which I mix in with my Three Cheese Hash Brown Casserole (recipe here) And for a low carb alternative to a summery barbecue picnic type […]

SMASHED PEAS and WHITE BEANS on TOAST

I’m not a big bread eater like my Frenchman, so when I come across another great looking recipe for an open-faced sandwich (half the bread) I have to try it. My recent post of Avocado Toast with Sardines and Pickled Ginger was a big hit here is our little galley and this next Jamie Oliver-inpsired recipe has turned out to be just as good… The […]

ESCARGOTS VOL AU VENT

Sounds fancy but it’s not. Snails are not everyone’s cup of tea but one little can easily feeds two of us and it’s not expensive …and yes I brought two cans onboard with us this summer The first was for a very good Snails Tapas (recipe here). The second can was of course my contingency. One is good then two must be better. So here is […]

Now this following salad isn’t like the two above mentioned but with them as an inspiration I created one of my own, keeping to my ‘prepare once eat […]
