MEDITERRANEAN BAKED FISH

MEDITERRANEAN BAKED FISH

Good day to you all my Galley Friends.  I hope you are all well and ready for another treat from my little kitchen.  I must admit, that I really have been missing our dear sail boat, and when meal time rolls around I especially miss my very compact but efficient galley. Cooking minimally has become so engrained, that even with more conventional appliances, I still prefer my boat things. Because on the boat I had just one burner to cook…

LENTIL POTATO BAKE

LENTIL POTATO BAKE

Hello Galley Folks.  I’ve been working on some not-so-meaty dishes for you.  I try to strike a balance between animal/fish protein and more plant-based meals at least 3 times each week with a soup or chowder meal thrown into the mix.  Plus I know that in a few days we will be so turkey-ed out that we’ll need a little belly break.  This very repeatable and shareable dish fits in perfectly with a good comfort food vibe. I used chicken…

JUNE RECIPE ROUND-UP

JUNE RECIPE ROUND-UP

Since I’ve been posting these recipe round-ups it’s been fun watching the patterns of the most popular searches and boy oh boy you guys have been grilling and from what I can tell camping/RV’ing/boating up a storm.  It’s all about the barbecue and Omnia cooking this month.  Not to exclude you who are without the little stove-top miracle of an oven because you know I will always give you options for conventional land-based ovens but it’s obvious by the number…

GREEK LAMB STEW (pressure cooker version)

GREEK LAMB STEW (pressure cooker version)

As some of you know we have been homeless for the past few months.  Our condo in Montreal sold and closed the 12th October.  All our wordly possessions were packed into an 8’x8’x16’ POD moving container which is now waiting for delivery this coming week. During the transition of closing in Montreal and closing here in Nova Scotia we have been staying with my daughter, son-in-law and their two kidlings.  I’m getting to my point…really I am… So, one day…

MEDITERRANEAN-STYLE LEMON CHICKEN

MEDITERRANEAN-STYLE LEMON CHICKEN

Time to add a little heat to the galley today.  Another chilly rainy day  and I have a good book to curl up with.  No time to be messing around with time consuming meals. Six chicken thighs and a handful of vegetables, some olives and lemon for a Mediterranean flair and we had a tasty meal in a little over one-half hour. Being the frugal Galley Kat that I am, I shredded the remaining two thighs, dumped them back into…

EAST COAST HODGE PODGE with SEAFOOD

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 or more milky (my recipe for basic hodge podge here)   Tonight though, I went…

CAJUN FOIL PACKETS

CAJUN FOIL PACKETS

Grilling time folks and this rather tasty meal could never be easier.  Just gather all your ingredients together. Divide amongst four sheets of foil and season liberally. The limiting ingredient is the potatoes (depending on the size), so when they are done the rest will be fully cooked, about 20-30 minutes and the corn was so juicy and tender it didn’t even need added butter. These would make a great camp fire meal shared with friends.  We made four packets…

PICKLE BRINE POTATO and GREEN BEAN SALAD with GRILLED STEAK

PICKLE BRINE POTATO and GREEN BEAN SALAD with GRILLED STEAK

I’m afraid that I’m hooked on spicy extreme beans.  It used to be dill pickles but oh that spice and crunch sends me over the moon.  I buy them in large jars but recently the frugal Galley Kat in me was resenting wasting all that tasty brine. So I made me some pickle brine potato and green bean salad.  Within a few minutes pressure cooked we were ready to dine. I barely had time to grill the steaks…but then we…

CHEESY POTATO PUFFS

CHEESY POTATO PUFFS

With just one burner to cook our meals onboard I really have to pick and choose what will take centre stage in the galley.  It’s why I’m usually careful about leftovers and how those leftovers can be reborn for another time.  Tonight was one of those times for two cups of leftover mashed potatoes from our yummy Apple Sauce Meatloaf supper  to monopolize the space (recipe for meatloaf here). Depending on the size of muffin cups this recipe should give…

CHEESY POTATO STACKS

CHEESY POTATO STACKS

So far I’ve not found anything that requires a conventional oven that I can’t cook in my little Omnia stove top oven.  Tonight while my chicken breasts were ‘poaching’ all on their own off-burner (you can read about this ingenious method here) I cooked us these rather elegant little potato morsels. Getting down and dirty with clean hands of course, I massaged the buttery cheesy peppery mixture into each slice. Equally portioned into little muffin cups they were ready to…
