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

What We Love: Savory French Recipes

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.

Food is a Gift (Part 2) and 3 Tips to Help You Gift Food with Confidence

As I type this little novel to you, I’m giggling at its length. Gosh, I’ve got lots to say. I’ll be traveling for two whole weeks and though I’ll post images on Instagram, I won’t be writing too many blog posts from abroad. I guess I’m trying to fit in all the words until I

Organic Carpet Shake with Lemon, Lavender, & Eucalyptus

The moment spring hits, I start cleaning every nook of my home. Unworn clothes go to the local charity, old books and magazines get carted to the library or senior center, and the house gets well-cleaned, top to bottom. This Organic Carpet Shake which smells like spring is getting tossed on all my rugs this

In Maggie’s Kitchen: My Sourdough Adventures, Life-Changing Pancakes, and a Dream Trip to Ireland

I call today let’s-get-this-stuff-done Monday. My schedule is packed but I’m just glad to be able to tackle it on this almost 60 degree day in New England (downright balmy). I want to tell you everything but will settle on sharing a bunch of juicy tidbits: Let’s Go to Ireland: In less than two weeks,

Food is a Gift: Part 1

Food is a Gift: Part 1

In my forthcoming cookbook, I write a little about why I started Eat Boutique and why I gift food. I had to write it down somewhere because, gosh, I really didn’t know until I finally typed it into a computer screen. I suppose it’s easy and obvious to say, “gifting food is how I want

Beet Old Fashioned Cocktail

Beet Old Fashioned Cocktail

I’m not drinking too much these days. A bit of a teetotaler, I may sip a hefty splash of red wine here or a flute of champagne there (or, maybe two flutes) but liquor-filled drinks have been lower on my list. Cocktails are so very good — right? — but I’m just feeling like I

In Maggie’s Kitchen:

Thanks to everyone who visited with us last week. Just seeing your smiling faces reminded me of our holiday pop-up late last year. (Heidi put together a nifty montage of some of those images!) You especially loved and bought up all of our darling Malvi Marshmallows which are now only two packages for $10 in

What We Love: Spring Pickles

by Amy Feiereisel
What We Love: Spring Pickles

My initial reaction to spring produce is pretty simple – eat everything fresh in sight, often with just a quick drizzle of olive oil or a sprinkle of really nice salt. But after my belly is all filled up with baby greens, my mind turns to saving and preserving some of those lovely, delicate spring

Gift Wrap: How to Wrap Muffins and Cupcakes

Gifting How-To: Wrapping Muffins and Cupcakes

Sometimes, I gift some kind of homemade food gift plus a kitchen item. For example, I might gift a new pasta bowl and vintage spoons with a box of wholesome pasta and a jar of homemade tomato sauce. It’s a nice gift to a new home. Actually, it’s a very generous gift to a new
