EASY SUMMERY LAMB BOWLS

Good day to you my galley friends.  Following a recent guest from away visit, I have a very tasty meal for you.  Full of Greek-inspired flavours, super easy to throw together, it was the perfect hot summer time dish to offer our friends. Couscous is handy to have on hand because all it needs is boiling water or broth, five minutes of wait time, some […]

GALLEY ADDITION (plus new easy recipe)

Good day to you my Galley friends.  I decided it was time to introduce you all to my new Galley assistant, Zula, our five month old Abyssinian kitten. Years ago when we began our sailing adventure together, we subscribed to a blog, Bailey Boat Cat, fur baby to a live aboard young couple.  Their antics were charming and engaging and we dreamed that one day […]

MAKE AHEAD FREEZER OATMEAL COOKIES

Good day to you Galley folks.  You can thank my daughter and her current housing ‘condition’ for today’s recipe.  They have recently purchased a home that needs renovating and instead of continuing to live in their tiny apartment with two active monkeys they decided to move into their basement while contractors make the home liveable.  They created an ingenious set-up in the room that will […]

IRISH BREAD PUDDING w WHISKEY CARAMEL SAUCE

Hello there Galley friends or should I say top of the mornin’ to you? I gave my guy a choice of what he would like for this year’s Saint Patrick’s Day treat.  A traditional cooked breakfast with some tasty Irish potato cakes or Irish bread pudding.  Silly me!  Of course he chose the dessert.  Lucky him!  Lucky you! I made a few changes to SIMPLE PEACH […]

MUJENDRA (Cypriot rice and lentils)

This week I’m in plant-based heaven again.  I was enjoying a weekend morning cocooning in bed doing catch-up on some reading while having the TV on for some background noise and what do I hear?…’leftovers’?  Got my attention it did. The recipe had a name very similar to something I made for you a while ago…MUJADDARA which is what it’s called in Middle Eastern culinary circles. […]

BAKED SPAGHETTI

You know by now how much I love leftovers.  On the boat it was something I planned for when creating meals.  We got into the habit of eating the leftovers for breakfast the next day…perfect start because our evening meal was typically the heaviest so those extra calories served us well for the sailing day ahead. Now that we are land-based for the winter months […]

CABBAGE CASSEROLE

Half a cabbage was resting in my refrigerator begging to be used.  What to make? Sub-zero temperatures and yet another storm in our midst and comforting cabbage casserole was born. I added some celery and carrot to the mix for extra nutrition, some creamed soup and Greek yogurt thrown in and supper was ready.  Use whatever creamed soup you wish.  Cream of celery is especially […]

JENN’S BOOM BOOM SAUCE

Still on my Galley Basics kick, I looked through some Friends Faves submissions and found this recipe delight from Jenn.  I love the name…Boom Boom Sauce.  No idea where she came up with this name but it does come with a huge flavour explosion…especially if you make it a few hours, or even a day in advance so the ingredients have a chance to hang […]

CRISPY TOPPING

Hi there Galley folks.  As we head into the colder days, I’ve been taking stock of some basics in my little land kitchen.  I’m not a big fan of frequent shopping trips especially looking ahead to some nasty wintery days when I would much rather be curling up with a good book or binge watching some seasonal faves. Today’s recipe is one of those great […]
