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 […]

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 […]

JUDY’S GREEN TOMATO LOAF

What perfect timing for this next Friends’ Faves recipe.  Here on the east coast, temps have started dropping and I have so many green tomatoes that will never ripen in their current place on the vines.  Entering onto my galley scene –  Green Tomato Loaf. If you want some point of reference the results are similar to zucchini cake….all moisty and tasty.  The perfect touch […]

POTATO CAULIFLOWER CURRY

My daughter invited us to dine with her a while ago and made the most delicious vegetarian meal.  The flavours for such a simple dish were so intense served with a side of fluffy rice and a few squares of crispy salty paneer, I just had to do a repeat performance for the two of us.  My husband, a meat lover, was amazed that a […]

CRUSTLESS TOMATO QUICHE

When I first made this recipe, we were on the boat and I kind of just dumped everything into the pan, plunked the cheese on top and cooked it in my Omnia stove top oven.  It was delicious but not terribly pretty.  Notice how I tried to dress it up with a little basil? It did the trick as far as a healthy, easy and […]

GENIUS NO COOK PASTA SAUCE

I’ve been heavy into easy cooking lately.  Now that we are back on the water I have absolutely no interest in complicated.  Some grilled meat or fish and a fresh salad is about as complex as it gets.  I came across this next recipe and it is just the best idea I’ve seen in a long while.  Made soley with tomatoes and butter and the […]

BULLSHOTS R.E.D. STYLE

Chilly nights call for warming drinks. According to mixologists a Bullshot is typically made with spiced up beef broth and vodka. I however decided we needed another serving of vegetables tonight (potato-based vodka doesn’t count) so added tomato juice as well. More like a warming Bloody Mary. This is also wonderfully satisfying without the vodka. BULLSHOTS R.E.D. STYLE (makes about 48 oz) 20 oz of […]
