Bacon and Sweet Potato Galette

  This, my fellow pirates, was EASY and DELICIOUS. Wow…this recipe showed up in the Wall Street Journal a few weeks back (don’t judge; pirates need their financial news…) and I thought “huh…that’s one I might try.” They tend to have very complex recipes, or require crazy exotic ingredients that my truffle-oil-soaked co-pirate might have,…

Almond Pear Tart

This is not one of those desserts you whip up for a hungry crew after a hard sail. This is best saved for those special evenings in the marina when you have time on your hands and appreciative guests who love good food and leisurely dining. This is a decadent dessert, but somewhat time consuming.…

Orzo With Peas and Shrimp

Boy, I really need to come up with a zippier title for this post before it goes out…note to self.  Because honestly, this is an absolute STAPLE dish.  When it is TOO hot in the galley to spend more time than you have to, nothing truly exciting on offer as far as ingredients, and —…

Spinach Lasagna Rollups

  Our apologies to all you followers! The recipe picture is no longer appearing in your weekly emails.  Aaargh…the problems that can come with site upgrades. We’ll resolve it some day. But in the mean time, do check out the new RECIPE page that has a much easier way of finding those great recipes. And…

Philly Cheesesteak Sliders

Guys, you can skip to the next paragraph: Skipper informs me we’re having some Brits on board for a day sail. It could be one, two or more Brits, maybe a local and her daughter, perhaps a British wife and one or two kids. Maybe Sunday, Maybe Monday. And a couple might raft up with…

Watermelon Salad

‘Tis that time of year, no?  HOT.  But good summer fruits are ridiculously plentiful and cheap.  Captain Peter had quite enough Watermelon Gazpacho with the last monster melon I bought, so tonight we’ll stay solid with a salad.  It’s hot enough this time of year on the Gulf Coast that, at best, we get out…

Fresh Tomato Soup

Tomatoes are still abundant in the Chesapeake region right now, so get up early and head to your local Farmer’s Market if you don’t already have neighbors offing their extras on you. This is a very simple soup to make and I think you’d be hard pressed to find a tastier tomato soup. It’s very…

Night Watch Oatmeal Cookies

No offshore cruise is complete without cookies on night watches. And like any food when you’re pounding the ocean’s waves…you want something easy, nutritious and satisfying. Many cruisers, including we on Night Town, have an alcohol prohibition offshore. It may be the only time many sailors sober up. So in absence of the usual beer,…

Heavenly Grilled Pizza

Today we Galley Pirates are welcoming guest pirate Ann as she walks us through her Italian family’s homemade pizza recipe. On a grill! On a boat! Aaargh! Heavenly Grilled Pizza – so named for two reasons. I first created this pizza recipe on a Mission Trip to Ulaanbaatar Mongolia two years ago when my hosts…

Bacon and Blue Cheese Stuffed Burgers

Ahoy hungry scallywags!  If ye all have been following Galley Pirates since its start years ago, you might recognize a few posts recently, as we return to some of our greatest hits, prepared under different circumstances.  In this case, these over-the-top delicious burgers were prepared from the Upward Wing galley, in mass one Fourth of…
