SIMPLE NO COOK PIZZA SAUCE

It makes two cups…enough for two generous tablespoons worth per pizza…freezes […]

HALIFAX DONAIR GRILLED CHEESE

Hello there my Galley friends.  So very glad you dropped by.  I was in the mood today for an easy supper, so created this little number for you to try. Very much a take on traditional grilled cheese but with Middle Eastern flavours, in the style of a Mexican quesadilla. Load these as you wish. More cheese. More veggies. Double up the tasty donair meat […]

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 […]

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 […]

CRAZY BREAD with CRAZY SAUCE

Who comes up with these names for recipes anyway? The ‘crazy’ part of this one is apparently a Little Caesars pizza joint thing.  No doubt an attention grabbing marketing ploy. What makes it ‘crazy’?  Could it be how crazy simple it is to make?  Crazy because of minimal  ingredients? Crazy because of how versatile it is? And, after calculating the nutritional information (see recipe card below), […]

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 […]

HOMEMADE CREAM-STYLE CORN

Hi there my Galley Friends.  I hope you are well and looking forward to some good spring weather as we are on the east coast.  Bit by bit things are opening up as the dreaded virus subsides. I still don’t go out much for retail ventures so I spend time in my land kitchen concocting ways of not using commercially prepared ingredients.  It’s a challenge […]

GINNY’S BUTTER CHICKEN MEATBALLS

Digging into my stash of Friend’s Faves submissions, I found this delicious recipe  for easy butter chicken from Ginny, using ground chicken made into tender juicy little meatballs, floating in a buttery tasting tomato sauce.  The surprise was how buttery it all tasted with only a small amount of butter added at the end. This would be the perfect time to try making the meatballs, […]

ZUCCHINI GNOCCHI with CREAMY SAUCE two ways

True confessions from the Galley.  I’ve never made gnocchi before.  Never eaten gnocchi before.  I’m not sure why exactly except I always had the impression that it was some sort of doughy tasteless pasta.  Boy, was I wrong! As I was making the gnocchi, I kept sampling the little ‘slugs’ as they rose to the top of the boiling water. Shameful I know, but I […]

BAKED GREEN DUMPLINGS in RED PEPPER SAUCE

Inspired by Rita’s Romanian Meatball with that tasty tomato soup sauce and since we were at that time still under 14-day quarantined following crossing provincial borders after selling of our sailboat, I foraged in my garden and pantry for dinner. One jar of roasted red peppers and a bunch of greens became the base for a delicious meatless meal. Trying to use as few dishes as […]
