Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Roasted chicken wings

    • twoyolks on November 16, 2016

      I marinated these for an hour before baking. The only flavor on the chicken wings was lemon which overpowered everything. There was so much lemon that it reminded me of eating lemon soaked sea food.

  • Whiskey sour

    • twoyolks on November 16, 2016

      This was really sour. Too sour to drink.

  • Tender cheese crackers

    • twoyolks on December 07, 2015

      These have good parmesan flavor but didn't really crisp up well for me. It also uses quite a bit of parmesan (6 oz.).

  • Steamed spinach

    • twoyolks on January 27, 2014

      This resulted in a lot more cooked spinach than 2 people could easily eat. Also, 4 tbsp of butter is too much for this much spinach (it just pooled at the bottom of the bowl).

  • "Fresh" pea soup

    • twoyolks on February 10, 2014

      The flavor was a bit one-note and seemed as if it was missing an ingredient.

  • Fried rice

    • twoyolks on May 15, 2016

      This is simple and mostly tastes that way but it grew on me the more I ate it. I made it with the optional chile-garlic sauce and it added just enough heat and complex flavor.

  • Fried fish

    • rpepper on March 20, 2018

      Simple and really good.

CANAL HOUSE COOKING VOLUME N° 6 has just arrived. It is a collection of our favorite recipes, the ones we cook for ourselves, our friends, and our families, using the best that grocery stores have to offer. It is filled with recipes that will make you want to run straight to the grocery store to stock up and start cooking. We are home cooks writing about home cooking for other home cooks. Our recipes are easy to prepare and completely doable for the novice and experienced cook alike. Good cooking relies on good shopping, so we buy smoked fish to make a delicious creamy stew, and plump organic chickens to roast right on the oven rack over potatoes and vegetables. Bunches of fat local asparagus go into our shopping cart-we cook them simply and bathe them in a luscious lemon-butter sauce. We choose hearty escarole and tender young spinach and stock up on bags of frozen peas and fava beans to use in so many ways. We buy succulent rhubarb for an early spring tonic or for an Easter dessert, roasted and spooned over crisp meringues. Canal House Cooking Volume N° 6, The Grocery Store, is the sixth book of our award-winning series of seasonal recipe collections. We publish three volumes per year: Summer, Fall & Holiday, and Winter & Spring, each filled with delicious recipes for you from us. Cook your way through spring, and all that The Grocery Store has to offer, with Canal House Cooking!
