WARM CORN CHOWDER SALAD

WARM CORN CHOWDER SALAD

I’m in love with versatile recipes ….ones that are  simple to make …ones where ingredients can be swapped to produce a result just as delicious as the original …ones that can be transformed into something entirely different using the same ingredients. This is one of those recipes. I took a basic corn chowder recipe (for my boat version click here) I swapped out fresh corn for canned corn. I eliminated the milk/cream component and added some fresh green to turn soup…

WAFFLED MASHED POTATOES with SMOKED SALMON and YOGURT

I’m on a leftover-mashed-potato kick this week and am realizing there are SO many ways to transform them for another meal so that they don’t really resemble their original state. Like a potato disguise. ….I pulled together my ingredients …hauled out my little boat waffle iron.       …and was very pleased with the results. …potatoes in disguise. WAFFLED MASHED POTATOES with SMOKED SALMON and YOGURT makes about 12 waffles   what you will need 2 cups mashed potatoes…

SALT and VINEGAR POTATOES

SALT and VINEGAR POTATOES

I love a salt and vinegar combination, especially when it comes to potatoes. Don’t get me going on my past salt and vinegar potato chip binge sessions. But back to the present and a healthier me. Recently I discovered I could get that perfect tangy taste by par-boiling some little taters in vinegar and salt.   …then crisp those taters up a bit in some oil and butter… SALT & VINEGAR POTATOES about 4 servings or enough for some leftovers…

LA GARBURE – #15 of 44 FRENCH CLASSICS YOU NEED TO TRY BEFORE YOU DIE

LA GARBURE – #15 of 44 FRENCH CLASSICS YOU NEED TO TRY BEFORE YOU DIE

Back at it, picking away at my 44 French Classics. So many of the South-western French recipes on the list are basic stews with varying ingredients. For this next one, I found many recipes of the same name but the meat ingredients seemed to vary. The common elements were duck legs, cabbage, and were heavy on the root vegetables. It’s basically known as a peasant stew. The following is my attempt at reproducing what I imagine it would taste like…

FISH CHOWDER

FISH CHOWDER

I was distracted today… I call it AAADD (Age Affected Attention Deficit Disorder) You know the kind of day when you start out pursuing one task, then you pass by something that needs to be done, then something else attracts you and you start in on that, and by the end of the day nothing in particular gets done. This was one of those days… I planned on studying for an upcoming Weather exam and maybe a blog post or…

CHEESY GARLIC POTATO PUFFS

CHEESY GARLIC POTATO PUFFS

I love potatoes in all forms but there is something about the combination of potatoes, cheese and garlic. I came across a recipe for tater tots baked in the oven …a very easy fix for a little boat with a tiny galley with no oven …just boil, grate, season and fry in a minimum of oil. …season well and serve.
