What We Love: Picnic Sides

What We Love: Picnic Sides

A friend recently asked me to recommend a kid-friendly spot for brunch near Boston’s Public Garden. For eleven adults and four kids. This probably isn’t as difficult as getting a reservation at The French Laundry, or Blue Hill at Stone Barn (my current obsession), but I’m willing to bet that it’s pretty darn hard. So

In Maggie’s Kitchen: Strawberry Season, Summer Solstice Fingerbread & Stovetop Clam Bakes

The summer solstice is finally behind us. It’s a moment that happens every single year — the longest day of the year — but for some reason, after our long winter, I was cautious about it this year. Sure, it’s been warm but the actually summer solstice, yesterday, was filled with dark clouds, a sky-like faucet of

What We Love: Father’s Day Food Gifts

What We Love: Father’s Day Gifts

I think everyone who knows him would agree that my dad is a pretty unique character. His needs are few, and if he wants something he generally buys it himself. His tastes are also simple. Let’s just say that he and my 22-month-old daughter have very similar palates, and feeding both can be a challenge

Good day to you! It feels like summer here. It also feels like there are so many good things happening in the universe. Here are a few: A few years ago, I hung out with Jessica Fechtor and promptly fell for her sweetness and incredibly generous nature. She also happens to be one of those

What We Love: French Food Gifts for Any Occasion

From buttery, flaky croissants with homemade jam to a pot of comforting soup with a crusty baguette, there is just something magical about French food gifts. And we love them all. In honor of our French week—have you seen our other posts on the Café Gourmande, Paris Markets, and Parisian Jam?—we wanted to take a

In Maggie’s Kitchen: Irish Favorites, Simple Syrups, and Maine

Hello, Time starts flying the very moment it gets pleasant outside. It’s only June but I need to add another ten dinner parties to my schedule before I miss summer altogether. I also want to share a few more bits and bites. My Three Favorite Irish Things: Ireland holds so many special memories for me

We’ve been rolling out a new line of Maker Boxes over the past few weeks, which are gift boxes sourced from a single, wonderful maker that we adore, and shipped directly from them to you. Our previous box was the Kate Bakes Bars Collection, a sampler box of vegan power bars with a short ingredient

In Maggie’s Kitchen: How My Garden Grows, Summer Sweets, and an Ireland Preview

Hello friends, I’m so glad to be back home on New England soil. Except for today’s rainy chill, it’s warm and cozy and the soil is basically ready to be planted. Since I spent most of May in Ireland, I only got the garden ready for planting in the last week of May, cutting it

What We Love: Sweet French Recipes

What We Love: Sweet French Recipes

I remember the exact moment I fell head-over-to-the-moon in love with Paris. All it took was a simple bite of an éclair from a hole-in-the-wall bakery in Montmartre. Somehow every happy and beautiful moment of my life was captured in each bite of airy pastry, dark chocolate, and vanilla cream. This was not the grocery-store, soggy, yellow-custard-filled éclairs of my youth. Oh

Want to Publish a Book? I’ll Tell You How at The Hello Sessions

I just returned from Ireland and wanted to share a quick little love note regarding something that has me so excited. I was invited to share my blog-to-book story at The Hello Sessions, a workshop-based conference designed to help creative entrepreneurs and bloggers find more success. The workshops are designed to give people like you

Socca: Chickpea Flour Crepes You Have to Try

Socca – The Chickpea Flour Crepes You Have to Try

My first taste of Socca was in Nice, where the golden triangles are sold at markets and out of stalls on nearly every corner – it’s practically the city’s official snack! A friend and I ate it up within seconds, marveling over the texture and taste, and wondering how to make it at home. Thanks

I might have a bit of an obsession with French food (and cafes, and bistros, and markets…). Maybe. That’s why Maggie wanted to spend a little time in Paris this month (via the blog, of course)! We’ve been talking about must-visit eateries in the city, the best outdoor food markets, and a jam shop that

In Maggie’s Kitchen: Let’s Spend Springtime in Paris

I’m in Europe right now, soaking in the rain and the fog and all that greenery from every Irish vista. You were all completely right – it’s gorgeous and everything I ever imagined. It’s actually providing the perfect pause from my hectic food gift life, the cookbook release planning, and a few new projects that

What We Love: Bridal Shower Dishes & Drinks Worth Celebrating

What We Love: Swoon-Worthy Bridal Shower Dishes

Five weddings. An entire handful of my dearest and most darling friends are tying the knot this year (four of them within a five-week span!). It’s like the old saying, “when it rains love, it pours weddings.” And with weddings comes bridal showers. I couldn’t be over-the-moon to celebrate the bride (or couple) with family and friends.

What We Love: Homemade Gifts for Mother’s Day

What We Love: Homemade Gifts for Mother’s Day

It’s not easy to buy a gift for my mother. Growing up, she acted plenty excited and surprised when she unwrapped my attempts, but I rarely saw her using the necklace/key-chain/pretty box that I’d picked for her. However, she was always thrilled to pieces when my brother and I made breakfast in bed for her.
