Spinach, Feta & Sun Dried Tomato Egg Cups

A grab-and-go breakfast is never overrated on a sailboat. These can be eaten under way with nothing more than a hand and a napkin. There’s no limit to what you can put in them. Add some bacon or sausage for your meat lovers. Plus they can be refrigerated or frozen ahead. Make a few dozen…

German Apple Pancake

The thing about Easter is it’s always still a little chilly — spring, no doubt, but not necessarily warm.  Pirate Kristin grew up in Boston where you wore wooly tights under your frilly Easter dress, and not infrequently “got lucky” … colored eggs are easier to spot in the snow.  Even down here in the…

Chilaquiles

…or, “how to eat chips and salsa for breakfast without explaining yourself.”  This is one of my captain’s favorite breakfasts, making it a real shame that this is the first time I’ve made it for him…and is our twelfth wedding anniversary!  I had never heard of it, so when he and his mom — who taught…

Blue Crab Breakfast Arepas

I know we’re all prepping for the holidays but I just can’t help getting one more Arepa recipe in! Rewind to January, Santa Marta, Columbia, with the 2018 World ARC…my Arepa inauguration. Breakfasts onboard have never been the same since. I’ve created other breakfast arepas on Galley Pirates, but this Maryland-influenced Arepa is by far my…

Pork Ranchero Breakfast Arepa

Arepas are my new addiction so be prepared to see a number of these recipes on Galley Pirates. They are super easy to make and can be served plain, stuffed with cheese, smothered in sauces or any way imaginable. My introduction to these savory fried corn cakes was in Santa Marta, Columbia, where they’re a…

Waffles with Peaches and Creme

I have a new gadget that I snuck onboard the boat this weekend. Not exactly sure where I’m going to stow it but I’ll be sure to keep it out of sight of the captain. It meets 3 out of 4 of the “NOT for a Sailboat” criteria: it’s heavy, it’s single use and it…

Quickie Quiche

Ready, set, …GO! We’re going to make this quiche as fast as you would round the first mark of the Wednesday Night Races! A quiche SO EASY you can add pretty much anything you have in your icebox. (although I wouldn’t recommend…say…chocolate…) Just have some eggs, onions, cream and cheese on hand and the rest…

Apple Cheese Turnover … underway at 8 kts

Regular followers will know that Pirate Kristin has been whining prodigiously for some time about the TRULY unprecedented cold plaguing the Gulf Coast this winter — which is only exacerbated by Pirate Caroline traipsing around in Caribbean climes.  Well…today, after a ridiculous several-days’ freeze, the bayou dwellers awoke to high-60s, sun, and a brisk 15-18kt…

Sweet Potato, Poblano and Chorizo Hash With Eggs

Happy day-after Thanksgiving!  A day when your faithful Galley Pirates seek to help you solve your various leftover challenges.  We’ve had the ultimate post-Thanksgiving Day turkey sandwich, turkey tetrazzini, a lovely turkey quiche, even a Manchego turkey pizza. This year we confront the fact that Captains cannot resist a bargain, so if you send them…

Green Eggs and Ham

  I am Sam. Sam I am. Do you like Green Eggs and Ham? So these eggs aren’t really green. But they are poached to perfection and smothered in a green tomatillo sauce that is infused with roasted anchos, jalapeños and garlic. Hunkered down at the dock on Mothers Day, I had time on my hands…
