CAMPING CASSOULET

CAMPING CASSOULET

A long time ago I ran across an article entitled ‘44 Classic French Meals You Need to Try Before You Die’ so I jumped right in to tackle the list, modifying each one for easier boat galley cooking. Please feel free to scroll through what I was able to accomplish aboard our little 26 foot sailboat with a one-burner alcohol burning stove, a hand pump sink and precious little counter space. You can find them here: 44 Classic French Meals….

HOMEMADE SAUSAGES (meatless)

HOMEMADE SAUSAGES (meatless)

Rainy day in the camper so the perfect time for indoor games.  I’ve been wanting to try out this recipe for vegan sausages…a bit more effort and time than I would usually take….so why not today?  And I’m doing it off-grid-ish. The original recipe requires a food processor so am using my little hand powered processor.  Takes up so little space.  Not a lot of cleaning up either. A small can of pinto beans was the main ingredient. Some ground…

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…

PIGGIES in BLANKETS (a Captain Cooks creation)

PIGGIES in BLANKETS (a Captain Cooks creation)

He’s back! again… I am so loving all of this company in my land galley lately.  This time my guy offered to make us his special Pigs in a Blanket.  Some sharp cheddar, weiner wraps (found in your dairy section) and this time he thought we should use meat from our fave local butcher. Cavicchi’s makes the best sausage bites, little meatballs, gluten free with the perfect blend of spices.  This time, mild Italian. To keep with the simple-no-oven-in-my-galley focus…

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…

SLOW COOKER PIZZA – an experiment

SLOW COOKER PIZZA – an experiment

Here’s an interesting way to get your pizza fix.  Use your slow cooker.  I made up a batch of my one and only pizza dough (recipe here) and laid it out nicely in the bottom of the slow cooker pot. Next, came the toppings.  I kept this one simple with spicy sausage, caramelized onion and lots of cheese. Then I put the lid on loosely over a tea towel, set cooking time on high for four hours and walked away….hoping…

SAUSAGE FENNEL APPLE PIZZA

SAUSAGE FENNEL APPLE PIZZA

Oh pizza!  That perfect food! That combination of sometimes snack food, sometimes complete meal and in my galley, always reasonably healthy.  I’ve never understood why it’s called junk food by some because when you make everything yourself with fresh ingredients how could this creation be anything but the next thing to perfection ever. Firstly, let’s make the dough. Here is the link to my tried and true recipe GALLEY PIZZA DOUGH It’s fool proof!  No kidding!  And if it’s that easy…

BEAN and SAUSAGE BREAKFAST BAKE

BEAN and SAUSAGE BREAKFAST BAKE

One thing I bring a lot of onboard for the season is my Bisquick clone mix.  It allows me to whip up scones, crepes etc with ease and it made a great topping for today’s breakfast. As I’m writing this I’m thinking it’s time to throw together some more biscuits to serve  with local strawberries.  But I digress.  On to the recipe at hand… Little teeny tiny galley with a one burner alcohol/electric stove and no conventional oven and I can…
