SWEET POTATO, SPINACH and TORTELLINI SKILLET

With rising prices and uncertain fresh food supply, I’ve been turning to simple meals, with easy to keep on hand ingredients.  Sweet potatoes are the  perfect example.  Long shelf life.  Very nutritious.  And usually inexpensive. This easy recipe using frozen cheese tortellini pasta with a few handfuls of fresh spinach offers a delicious supper with a rather pretty presentaion.  Making it even simple as far […]

SONJA’S KALPUDDING (Swedish Meatloaf)

Thanks to Sonja, one of my Galley friends, I have this delicious submission for Kalpudding, a Swedish meatloaf dish which I am very happy to say, uses 1/3 of my Smothered Cabbage.  I do hope you prepared yourself for today’s recipe.  If not, get yourself a cabbage and start braising. This was the perfect recipe for using my amazing Omnia stove top oven…also of Swedish […]

BLUEBERRY CHEESE TARTLETS

Hello to you my Galley Friends. Here’s my situation.  I’ve been invited to a friend’s place for bison burgers…a friend from Alberta who is a consummate  carnivore.  A bit of back story…we treated him a while ago to some water buffalo burgers (I made Juicy Lucys) and he wanted to return the favour.  I offered to bring a side dish.  Offer accepted.  Then I thought […]

LYNN’S APPLE DONUT CAKE

In the mood for some Fall baking?  I hope so, because I have a good one for you this week. This recipe was sent in by one of my Galley Kat readers who thought it just might be perfect to try out in the Omnia stove top oven.  And she was right. Sometimes it’s hard to tell if there will be too much batter to […]

LENA’S PLUM TART

Hey there folks. It’s another busy day in my galley and I really wanted something tasty for dessert. I searched in my stash of Friend’s Faves submissions and found one from Lena for a plum tart and I just happened to have seven little purple plums at the perfect stage of ripeness. Some flour, butter, sugar, a dash of salt and a generous amount of […]

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 […]

GALLEY CAKE MIX

Continuing on with simplifying my life in the kitchen/galley, I have a super fun recipe for you this week. Those who have been following along for a while, know how much I dislike commercial preparations, preferring instead to make my own whenever possible and practical. Growing up in a small farming community with a father who always preached ‘the closer to nature, the better’ and […]
