Overview

We are home cooks writing about home cooking for other home cooks. We cook seasonally because that’s what makes sense.

SUMMER is a collection of our favorite summer recipes, ones we cook for ourselves all through the long lazy months. In midsummer, we buy boxes of tomatoes to dress as minimally as we do in the heat. And in the height of the season, we preserve all that we can, so as to save a taste of summer. We make jarfuls of teriyaki sauce for slathering on chicken. We love to cook big paellas outdoors over a fire for a crowd of friends. We are crazy for ripe melons in late summer. And we churn tubs of ice cream for our families. If you cook your way through a few of our recipes, you’ll see that who we are comes right through in these pages. With a few exceptions, we use ingredients that are readily available and found in most markets in most towns throughout the United States. All the recipes are easy to prepare (some of them a bit more involved), all completely doable for the novice and experienced cook alike. Cook all summer long with Canal House Cooking! 
FALL & HOLIDAY is filled with recipes that will make you want to run into the kitchen and start cooking. It is a collection of our favorite fall and holiday recipes. Foods of the holidays are classics, tied to tradition and memory. We cook our grandmothers’, aunts’, and mothers’ recipes to bring them to life and invite the people we miss to the table again. For us, it wouldn’t be a holiday without Neenie's Sourdough-Sage Stuffing, or Jim’s Roast Capon, or Peggy’s Grand Marnier Soufflé. But no matter what your menu, the most important thing is to join together for a meal and share the intimacy of the table.
WINTER & SPRING is a collection of our favorite winter and spring recipes, ones we cook for ourselves, our friends, and our families all during the cold winter months and straight through the exciting arrival of spring. It’s filled with recipes that will make you want to run into the kitchen and start cooking. We make jars of marmalade for teatime and to gift to our friends. We warm and nourish ourselves with hearty soups and big pots of stews and braises. We roll out pasta and make cannelloni for weekend or special occasion gatherings. We roast root vegetables in the winter and lamb in the spring.
