MONIQUE’S TARTIFLETTE

Hello there Galley Peeps.  Glad you stopped by today because, while going through some of my Friend’s Fave recipe submissions, I came across one from a French follower.  Written in French too. My French guy said he had never heard of a Tartiflette but his eyes lit up when I mentioned that it had stinky French cheese and doesn’t he love stinky French cheese. Reading […]

CHRISTINE’S BAKED POTATO DIP

I’m on a roll here bringing you yet another Friends’ Faves recipe.  The challenge – baking potatoes.  Can you make this without a conventional oven Christine asked?  I’m confident was my response. I have ‘baked’ potatoes before – my favourite being the Salted Baked Potatoes and Roasted Garlic (recipe here), and another potato favourite in my galley is Potato Stacks – an elegant way to […]

POTATO CAULIFLOWER CURRY

My daughter invited us to dine with her a while ago and made the most delicious vegetarian meal.  The flavours for such a simple dish were so intense served with a side of fluffy rice and a few squares of crispy salty paneer, I just had to do a repeat performance for the two of us.  My husband, a meat lover, was amazed that a […]

CAPTAIN COOKS WARM POTATO and ZUCCHINI SALAD with SPICY GRILLED SHRIMP

It’s been far too long since I did a Captain Cooks post and what better way to kick off summer than with one of his yummy grilling recipes.  This one is so easy and the best part for she-who-is-in-charge-of-the-galley is there were so few dishes to wash up after…just one serving bowl, our dinner plates, forks and knives.  Oh, and Captain’s wine glass.  Can’t flip […]

PORTUGUESE COD, POTATO and EGG CASSEROLE

We do love our fish.  Haven’t had a lot of luck catching the critters during our summers on the boat but we do dream someday of improving on this skill.  When we are lucky enough to get hold of fresh fish it’s a feast aboard.  With a little pretending tonight I created this Portuguese dish with some fresh cod found at our local fish market. […]

POTATO LATKE MUFFINS

I was so pleased with the results of my little potato stacks (recipe here), that I decided to try another potato side dish.  Potato Latkes are one of my all time favourites, especially smothered in rich sour cream or plain Greek yogurt.  Years ago while watching the kids’ show Mr. Dress-up (anyone remember him?) with my son, he showed how to make these really easy […]

CHEESY POTATO CAKES

I’m all about making it easy on myself in my little galley.  Leftovers used to be considered a four letter word to me but now I purposely make extra so that there will be enough for another meal.  Quite often what was leftover from an evening meal will become the next day’s breakfast. In the case of this next recipe I had made enough mashed […]

POTATO PUTTANESCA SALAD

I’m feeling the down-slide to spring with barely five weeks until we reach the Vernal Equinox. This is the time of year when our weather is really ‘blech’ and it helps me to visualize the warmer weather ahead and the beginning of boating season by creating some easy onboard recipes… Potato salad screams picnics and barbecues and this next dish is easy and tasty and […]

HAM and SCALLOPED POTATO CASSEROLE

WHEN EASTER HAS PASSED… All this talk about baked hams and scalloped potatoes has left me craving Easter food. Not those chocolate eggs but the real food of which childhood memories are made. I’m talking about rich creamy scalloped potatoes.. I don’t have my Mom’s recipe but I do remember that she used to also make the best new potatoes in a creamy parsley sauce. […]

CORNED BEEF, CABBAGE & POTATO HASH

As we move closer to boating season I am starting to imagine more vividly returning to our little home on the water… We have a plan this year to remain onboard for six months, one month of which will be spent cruising what I call the Little Loop or what is more commonly referred to as the Golden Triangle. Meals for a good part of […]
