SUN-DRIED TOMATO and FETA CAKE

SUN-DRIED TOMATO and FETA CAKE

I had some feta cheese staring at me from the refrigerator this morning, a morning when I felt hungry for muffins… It’s been a while since I made muffins, but I am always it seems in a boat galley frame of mind, so out came my Omnia stove top for another creation.

CHICK PEA, SAUSAGE and GOAT CHEESE SKILLET

This may not…

As it turns out, it’s pretty darn good… in this recipe…

CAPRESE SOUP

There wouldn’t always be fresh tomatoes on board and if there were I would rather use them ‘as is’ in a salad instead of sacrificing them to cooking. Garlic I usually do have a good supply of though and throwing a bulb or…

There was that inspired moment last summer when I realized that we could be living on the boat and still enjoy pizza (link) Enter on the scene – Naan bread and now that I can make my own pita (link) Making real pizza dough onboard is more involved that I would like to be for now, which led me to this…
