    Boat Cooking- In Need of Quick and Easy Dishes

    My parents are commercial fishermen in Alaska. My mother has been cooking on a boat for 40 years, and now that she is in her 60's, she has put her foot down. She informed my father she was going to start buying prepared meals to throw in the oven. My father called me frightened and begged me to suggest easy meals to her.

    They have an oil stove on the boat, so they can cook virtually anything in an oven, or on the stove top. They do not have a microwave or crock-pot. Ideally, I am looking for meals that only take 15 minutes of preparation. Cook time is not as important. Mostly, I am just looking for GOOD and easy...Dishes that don't take too long to prepare, and do not leave too many dishes for her to wash. Help me save my father from eating store bought prepared food! Thank you!

    Check out Corinne C. Kanter's cook books. She is a "live aboard," who has been cruising for 27 years and has writen 3 cook books for live aboards and currently has her own monthly cooking columns in three boating periodicals. I think her "The Cruising K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple System) Cookbook" is her best to date.

    You might also check out the OAMC Forum. Wonderful meals could be made ahead & frozen. This would make it easier for your mom on the boat. She could pull something out & have a meal on the table with little fuss. You might help her by having a cooking day before they depart. HTH

    Baked Ham is totally easy and the roasting pan comes clean without any scrubbing. It will be great for sandwiches also.
    Hearty Bacon Potato Chowder
    Supper In Foil by Derf is super easy and very little clean up.

    Thanks for all the recipes everyone! I talked to my parents yesterday and told them I had a bunch of recipes to give them from the Zaar. The were both really excited. I am putting the recipes that I have printed out in the mail, as I don't live in the same town as them. If I did, believe me, I would be sending meals with them.
