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. […]

HALIFAX DONAIR PLATTER (new recipe included)

I’m still on my comfort food kick here in my little land galley by the sea.  Did you check out my previous post with a composite of fave casseroles (CASSEROLES for COMFORT)? It’s a pleasure for me, as the creator and keeper of a blog, however small, to have perfect strangers visit from time to time and even more of a treat to have to […]

Good day to you my Galley Friends.  So nice of you to drop by.  I have for you my next recipe using Smothered Cabbage and it’s really a no brainer.  Too in, I basically dumped everything into a pot, simmered a bit, then served a bowl or two of delicious, nicely spiced Asian-style soup for today’s supper.  What made it even easier is that […]

Hi there my Galley Peeps.  I’m so glad you dropped by for a visit today.   I’m cooking up a delicious Korean meal for you.  Some very intense spice going on here but it’s all balanced nicely with crunchy cucumber pickles, steamed broccoli, a pile of fluffy basmati rice (I used the brown version this time) all nestled beside some tasty sautéed ground chicken. The […]

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 […]

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 […]

My goodness this month went fast!   We’ve been so busy dividing our time amongst getting the boat ready for her spring splash, preparing for guests and tending to getting our new-to-us gardens cleaned up that it’s left little time for anything else. I did take the time though to put together a list of your favourite Galley Kat recipes for the month of May. […]

 Here’s a tasty one for you Galley Peeps.  It was inspired by one of our home delivery plant-based meals.  A simple risotto with a Tex Mex flair. You’ve probably noticed that I’m big on making my own spice mixes.  For one thing, in my tiny galley there’s precious little space for a gazillion spice containers.  And we do love our Mexican type foods so this […]

 Having one of those days.  Don’t want to cook.  Don’t know what to cook even though I have a well planned database to choose from and a pantry and refrigerator fully stocked.  I just DON’T FEEL LIKE COOKING!!!  Let’s see what miracle I can pull from the cupboard.  Always conscious of a balanced meal…protein, vegetables and some carbohydrates…I find a can of salmon…I find a […]

EASY SHRIMP PAELLA (pressure cooker version)

I hope you don’t feel inundated with my latest flurry of blog posts.  I’ve not been inspired to write much lately…that is until this week.  So many recipe successes have given me the push I needed during this winter down time.  While Francois uses his latest purchase to evacuate a blocked gutter, a fibreglass ladder (note the very cool orange colour) and shovels our first […]
