After 2 years living aboard I finally got a used marine propane oven. I only had a 2 burner range prior that came with my boat. Finally I can bake a chicken using the free rosemary growing all around my marina. And COOKIES!!!
Easy peasy lemon and marina herb chicken:
-chop rosemary enough to slather all over the chicken. Leave a bunch un chopped to stuff bird
-chop 3 lemons, squeeze one lemon all over chicken, stuff with other 2 lemons and several bunchs of rosemary.
Bake till done in covered (foil) baking dish.
(btw...how come no one makes a 12x12 pan for boaters?! Or are odd size pans for marine ovens available somewhere?)
Also I've been playing around with a pressure cooker. Faster steaming/boiling = less propane used. Awesome for fast steaming veggies, or for super fast pasta. Also was attracted to pressure cookers after reading about the safety aspect of cooking in a self contained unit while under way...if it should happen to fly off of the stove, at least it stays closed and doesn't burn the hide off of the cook.
