My favorite Old Fashioned gets a twist, thanks to new contributor Jenni Horwath. If you have a bit of a sweet tooth, go ahead and add a tablespoon of maple syrup. Either way, it’s a lovely way to transition into brown drinks just in time for cool-weather holidays. Happy Halloween! -Maggie To brown liquor or

What We’re Loving: Spirited Cocktails for Halloween

Come, sit for a spell (sorry just a little Halloween humor). Living just a few miles from Salem, Massachusetts, I appreciate this spooky, kooky, creepy, crawly holiday in a way that goes beyond the scares, tricks, and treats. Halloween, to me, is truly a magical time (and it’s not just because of the witches). When else can

The Jam-Makers: Tips and Tricks by We Love Jam

Behind-the-Scenes With We Love Jam

It’s no secret. We absolutely adore We Love Jam, and all of their incredibly tasty and beautiful spreads–we’re even offering a special  price on their Tart Cherry and Apricot Jam for a very limited time in our shop.

Maggie’s Memo: Fall Cookbooks and Sunday Lunch

Happy (fall) Monday, I know everyone’s back to work today but I’d love to provide a little distraction by talking food and drink. And since my amazing team — Amy and Kate — expressly asked me to share more frequently — how I can refuse?! — here’s what’s going on in my world: Sunday lunch: I had lunch on Sunday.

Spicy Sesame Greens

Spicy Sesame Greens

We’re slammed with pounds of bitter greens from our local farmer right now, like arugula, chard, kale, mustard greens and more. For me, it’s heavenly and I just love how the bitter flavor plays against whatever it’s paired with, from steak to lemon-zest-flecked pasta to good crusty bread. On the other hand, my husband prefers

Roasted Pumpkin Soup in Baby Squash Bowls

Roasted Pumpkin Soup in Baby Squash Bowls

Let’s just say I’ve fallen for pumpkin this season — not the canned stuff or the latte syrup (though they have their place, no doubt), but instead, I’m cooking every style of gourd and shape of squash imaginable. And now my friend Sean has raised the bar in such an elegant way. I know what

Oyster Shell Salt Cellars

I’m in gift-giving mode at every moment of the year — not just during the winter holidays — and these DIY oyster shell salt cellars are the perfect hostess gift (we stock gorgeous Jacobsen Salt Co. shells in the Shop – great minds think alike!). Just tuck a pair into a box, add sea salt

Holiday Food Gifts: Join my Client ist

I’m up late watching the movie Chef and it reminds me of that pure joy you feel when you get to do something that both touches people and makes you exceedingly happy. It’s a feeling you sort of wear everywhere you go. I’ve been wrapping food gifts steadily since Labor Day, and though Halloween is

Hello Monday

Hello Monday

Hello Monday, I’m starting a new week feeling a little disconnected. Does that happen to you sometimes? It happens to me when I don’t spend enough time in the kitchen, my place to rest up and regroup and, if I’m being honest, to feel whole again. I’m gonna fix this asap because when you work

What We’re Loving: Homemade Breakfast Bars

For me, breakfast-on-the-go once meant nothing more than coffee in a travel mug. Thankfully, I have since learned the importance of the first meal of the day. And though I still rely on my trusty travel cup o’ joe to start my morning off right, I now accompany it with something a bit more substantial. The

Mushroom Stroganoff Baked Potatoes

Mushroom Stroganoff Stuffed Baked Potatoes

The moment I saw these stuffed baked potatoes from Denise, I suddenly didn’t mind the cold snap or the extra scarf needed to shield myself from the wind. The moment I came in from the cold, I knew I could make these and just go with the season. I’m hosting my own fall supper with

How Sweet it Is? The Life of a Professional Candy Maker

We’re sweet (pardon the pun) on Liddabit Sweets, and for good reason. Founders, Jen King and Liz Gutman, are the brains behind a range of unique candy bars, indulgent caramels, and one-of-a-kind caramel corns that make Liddabit Sweets so very special. Loving a good maker’s tale, we spoke to Jen to learn more about what makes the darling

Happy Monday

Happy Monday

Hello, hello! October is the best and worst. It’s a month full of so much amazing food – pumpkin, peppers, squash – but also, gosh, its laid me up with a bad cold. While I’m cuddled up with three blankets and a cup of chai tea, I wanted to share some of the best bits

What We’re Loving: Homemade Pasta Dishes

“Pantry pasta,” or more precisely whatever leftover or canned-good-was-about-to-expire my mother needed to use tossed with spaghetti, was a specialty at our house when I was growing up. My mother never wanted to waste anything, and so we spent many nights dining on colorful pasta dishes made with an assortment of odd ingredients. Watching as those noodles became
