Our Galley on board Morning Dance
When we first started doing couples charters with Island Dreamer Sailing School the idea of creating meals that were "charter worthy"  was one of the most challenging aspects of being a charter captain for me. On board, we have only a two burner propane stove with a boiler underneath that shoots a lazer beam of about 2" x 2" that will burn anything to a crisp if left in it for more than 3 seconds (in a year and a half I am proud to say I have mastered the "art" of toasting bagels in it though!).
A dinner during one of our recent charters
It took Derrek and I a few weeks of trying out various recipies on our days off to find a bunch of foods that worked for us. It needed to 1) taste good 2) quick and easy to prepare and 3) could keep well on the boat (our fridge is a little more than an ice box...you can keep yogurt and cheese, but def. not ice cream).

Pinterest is one of the most used apps on my phone (besides Windfinder ;)  ) - from cooking, décor, to you name it, they have a pin for it. A few of our favorite foods started from recipes that I found there. One that is a huge hit on charters is my Chicken Avocado Salad. It is a favorite of mine (of course it tastes amazing) and also works well on a boat - all of its ingredients keep til the end of a 5 or 7 day charter extremely well.
 
A fast favorite of ours.
