SMOTHERED CABBAGE

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. […]

CHICKPEA STEW with CORNBREAD DUMPLINGS

As promised, here’s my recipe for delicious Chickpea Stew and Cornbread Dumplings.  For this quantity you can half my Corn Meal Muffin recipe which should give you room for eight or nine dumplings.  The results are very much like chicken pot pie without the chicken. Another time I did add some cooked chicken leftover from Christmas that I had stashed away in the freezer but […]

STUFFED PUMPKIN BLOSSOMS

Did you think I’ve reached the epitome of galley ridiculousness?  Well you may be right, but oh my sweet garden these were SO good! How did these pumpkin blossoms come to be present in my land kitchen you may ask?  Boat related. Our dear sailboat R.E.D. is no longer ours as she now resides in the great white north…Yukon, to be specific. We’ve been having conversations […]

CELERIAC – my new favourite vegetable

A while ago now during a family gathering, we were treated to a wonderful buffet.  One dish immediately caught my attention.  A tangy, creamy side dish with a light crunch and  subtle hint of Dijon. It was love at first bite.  What is this, I asked?  The response… rémoulade de céleri-rave…from a local catering service.  English translation…celery root salad. Once we returned home I immediately […]

ADDICTIVE BRUSSELS SPROUTS with BACON and DATES

Did you ever think you would see ’addictive’ and ‘Brussels sprouts’ coupled together.  Well, this might just be the recipe to tip all those sprout haters into sprout lovers.  Savoury and sweet all in the same dish with a little added crunch of charred Brussels sprouts, it makes the perfect side dish.  But today was to be one of our meatless days and I wanted […]

JULY RECIPE ROUND-UP

So you’ve been entertaining this month have you?  Well, according to July stats you have.  Quite heavily in fact in the appetizer category.  We have too.  With visits from near and far and a spectacular neighbourhood house warming, I’ve been a very busy Galley Kat. Top of the list was this tasty recipe for zucchini and chicken bites.  I guess some of you must already […]

SUMMER VEGETABLE TIAN

I made this vegetarian dish in my little galley Omnia Stove Top Oven but it is traditionally made in a conventional oven.  And because I felt lazy today, it was hot and we were at anchor and it had been a very long day and I didn’t want a lot of washing up, I decided to sauté the onion and garlic directly in the Omnia […]

CREAMY LEMONY CHICKEN and WILD GRAIN SOUP

I had some leftover grains  and grilled chicken from a recent dinner and had a real craving for some warming rich soup.  Imagine!  It’s mid-May and there have been ‘risk of frost’ warnings and evenings onboard our little water home have been very chilly. Very pleased with the results of this belly-warming soup though… CREAMY LEMONY CHICKEN and WILD GRAIN SOUP 4 servings what you […]

BACON BRAISED CABBAGE with BLOOD ORANGE VINEGAR

As cabbage keeps better than lettuce onboard, I have been working on some recipes using cabbage to add to my galley repertoire. Our favourite so far is Japanese Pancakes… Braised cabbage is also an easy addition to a grilled supper and I find that a sprinkle of vinegar adds so much to the flavour, which brings me to the reason for this post… Recently we […]
