Maggie’s Kitchen Memo: Fall Cookbooks and Sunday Lunch

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.

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

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 Gifts for VIPs: Join My Client List

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

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

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

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

A Food Gift Love Dinner with Brooklyn Brewery and Maggie Battista

A Food Gift Love Dinner with Brooklyn Brewery and Maggie Battista

I’m thrilled because… guess what… I’ve turned in my manuscript for my cookbook, Food Gift Love. I’m elated and feel a lightness that is incomparable to anything except, perhaps, that end-of-the-semester moment in college when you finish all your exams, only better. It’s like my nights and weekends and very early mornings and that time

What We’re Loving: Pancakes

by Amy Feiereisel
What We’re Loving: Pancakes

Pancakes are magic. They mean home and comfort and lazy mornings and mickey-mouse shaped stacks, ready for gobbling. My favorite Sundays were those my father declared as Breakfast-for-Dinner days; which, of course, meant pancakes. So when I heard September 26 was National Pancake Day? Well, that warrants some celebration, and some of the most funky,

Grilled Peach, Corn and Prosecco Mussels

Crossover dishes have my heart this week and this one is just so special. Mussels cuddle up to late summer produce in a sparkling broth that says, “sure, it’s almost soup season but let’s keep the prosecco thing going a little while longer.” Grill up plenty of bread to sop up the pleasing stock –

Miso Beef with Soba Noodles & Crispy Kale Chips

Let’s not jump into pumpkins and butternuts just yet. Let’s ease into this autumn thing. September is about crossover dishes – a little bit summer with a hint or two of fall. This dish is the perfect balance of both seasons. And wrapped up on their own, the kale chips would make a great lunchtime

Earl Grey & Gin Cured Salmon Appetizer Toasts

Earl Grey & Gin Cured Salmon Appetizer Toasts Recipe

I first found smoked fish when living in Manhattan; every Jewish-style deli worth its weight offered a great option. Smoked mussels were popular at my Maine wedding. And now, I generally only eat smoked salmon during layovers at London’s Heathrow Airport when I treat myself to a little fish and a lot of wine during

What We’re Loving: Grilled Cheese

Did you know that the nation just celebrated a major holiday? Did you participate? Perhaps with some cheddar, or gruyere, for the more exotic? For those who have absolutely no idea what I’m talking about, it was National Grilled Cheese Day yesterday! It may seem a little silly that such a simple thing has its
