Hello there my Galley Folks.  Glad you stopped by today because I have a tasty little casserole for you to try.  I made it as a side dish for Easter dinner and F loved it so much I had to make it again…and again…and again. There’s something about the buttery crunchy topping and the custardy sweetness of the corn in each bite that makes it […]

Hi there all you Galley Folks.  Fall is definitely in the air these days.  It’s dark when I wake in the morning, I now have to put on my slippers when getting out of bed (which is a hard transition for this barefoot gal) and a couple of days I have even started up our little fireplace just to take the chill off the air. […]

Hello there Galley Peeps.  Glad you stopped by today because, while going through some of my Friend’s Fave recipe submissions, I came across one from a French follower.  Written in French too. My French guy said he had never heard of a Tartiflette but his eyes lit up when I mentioned that it had stinky French cheese and doesn’t he love stinky French cheese. Reading […]

I’m getting all fancy with my veggies in the galley today.  Not time consuming fancy.  Nor am I using weird and wonderful ingredients.  But by the time I finished making, then consuming this ultra-delicious dish, it felt very fancified.  I even poured us a glass of crisp white wine to go with to feel extra fancy pants fancy. A lowly head of cauliflower, a package […]

The discussion we have every year around Christmas time is ‘to stuff’ or ‘not stuff’….the turkey…not our bellies.  Stuffing the bird means a wonderfully flavourful result with all those juices infused into the bread crumbs but cooking is longer to make sure you don’t kill your guests  and in my opinion, it tends to over-cook the turkey. So this year the decision has been made […]

Want an easy side dish for your supper tonight? These stuffed mushrooms were super simple to throw together and very tasty . I can even see them made with smaller mushrooms served as an appetizer.   I made six for the two of us but the filling could easily have been enough for eight mushrooms.  I really over filled them.     I spiced up […]

With just one burner to cook our meals onboard I really have to pick and choose what will take centre stage in the galley.  It’s why I’m usually careful about leftovers and how those leftovers can be reborn for another time.  Tonight was one of those times for two cups of leftover mashed potatoes from our yummy Apple Sauce Meatloaf supper  to monopolize the space […]

I was so pleased with the results of my little potato stacks (recipe here), that I decided to try another potato side dish.  Potato Latkes are one of my all time favourites, especially smothered in rich sour cream or plain Greek yogurt.  Years ago while watching the kids’ show Mr. Dress-up (anyone remember him?) with my son, he showed how to make these really easy […]

So far I’ve not found anything that requires a conventional oven that I can’t cook in my little Omnia stove top oven.  Tonight while my chicken breasts were ‘poaching’ all on their own off-burner (you can read about this ingenious method here) I cooked us these rather elegant little potato morsels. Getting down and dirty with clean hands of course, I massaged the buttery cheesy […]

I’m all about making it easy on myself in my little galley.  Leftovers used to be considered a four letter word to me but now I purposely make extra so that there will be enough for another meal.  Quite often what was leftover from an evening meal will become the next day’s breakfast. In the case of this next recipe I had made enough mashed […]
