In Maggie’s Kitchen: New York City, Naturally-Sweetened Recipes and My New Favorite Salad

Hello and happy March to you, If you’re in New England, you’re likely waking up to a fresh coat of snow; my condolences. If you’re not in New England, may I come visit you, please? I’m definitely ready for some warmer weather asap. However, I’m also excited about all this stuff: New York, New York:

Caramelized Shallot and Sun-Dried Tomato Polenta

With the snow piled up all around, I can’t imagine a better way to eat my feelings than with this big bowl of polenta. It’s just the sort of easy meal to make me forget that it’s still snowing. A nice glass of red will help too. -Maggie Over Christmas, my brother-in-law’s family gathered for

In Maggie’s Kitchen: Morning Polenta Porridge, a Cookbook Update and Spring Events

Happy Monday, my friends, Let’s enjoy this last week of February, and talk mostly foodstuff and a little bit of other stuff. Cookbook Update: I’m having so much fun finishing up this cookbook, and while I know the release date is more than six months away, I know it will be here super quick. I’m

Candied Clementines

Candied Clementines

Winter is a living thing in New England, especially this year. When it weeps, freezing rain or snow (usually snow) tumbles into every last corner of these hills. When the season takes a sigh, almost as exhausted with itself as we are, windows and walls rattle from the gusty wind. But when she beams, as

In Maggie’s Kitchen: Pop-Up Thanks, Snack Mix and Parsley Sauce

New England is having a day, a week, a month. One more snowstorm and we’ll be awarded the snowiest winter on record (ever) award. All I want to do is bake lots of things (perhaps from my Bake Me Something Good board) and eat it all up, but instead, I’ll share what’s up this week. Pop-Up

Red Wine Chocolate Truffles

Red Wine Chocolate Truffles

What are you doing for Valentine’s weekend? Well, of course, it’s a weekend. When the holiday falls on a Saturday, the whole weekend becomes a celebration of love or hot and spicy food or small-batch chocolate or binge-watching Downton Abbey or every single Beyonce video with some ice cream. You know, you choose. Valentine’s Day

DIY Gift Wrap and Love Letters for Valentine’s Day or Any Day

If you’ve been to my home, you know that this Food Gift Love thing is no joke. I live it, quite naturally. However, I didn’t realize it was the making of a cookbook until I started storing everything in a single place in my home. Before, bits and bobs were floating all around, sometimes, never,

In Maggie’s Kitchen:

Hello friends, I just returned from a weekend away and, naturally, I have a few things to share because… it’s Monday! Spice It Up: I fell in love, again, with Maine and most certainly in love, again, with fra diavolo sauce. I don’t know why it’s evaded my cooking repertoire this long but, oh yes,

Spicy Orange and Almond Dark Chocolate Bark

It wouldn’t be February without chocolate. Even better, this spicy dark chocolate is zinged with orange zest, making it bright and picante in the same bite. Make it for someone you love and keep half for yourself, okay? -Maggie My first experience with spicy chocolate was when I was an undergraduate. I was living in

The Easiest Meyer Lemon Jam

Meyer Lemon Jam // eatboutique.com

Meyer lemons were the very first fruit I preserved more than seven years ago, or in other words, forever-ago. I probably should have taken it easy on myself by jamming apples or strawberries, but I didn’t. I attacked the fancy fruit head on because, first, I’m nuts like that and, second, they really do make

Hey there, It’s back-to-business-Monday, folks, but before you lose yourself in that new work project, let’s talk foodstuff. You know, the sort of talk that reminds you that your job is great but the real you comes to life in the kitchen. Right? Right. Homemade Chicken Stock: In case you missed this new recipe, I

The Gift of Homemade Chicken Stock

The Gift of Homemade Chicken Stock

I bet you think this is going to be a story about chicken stock. Don’t be silly. Just because you see pretty images of carrots and fennel and onions and celery and actual chicken stock doesn’t mean I’m going to write about chicken stock. Instead, I’m going to tell you that it’s stock season and

What We’re Loving: Party Dips to Please a Crowd

Ok, here goes. I am not, nor have I ever been, a football fan (please don’t hate me). I am, however, a huge fan of any excuse to bring people together and eat, which is why I tend to like sporting events like the Superbowl. I mean, what’s not to like? Friends gather together over a variety of finger

Hey there, Welcome to Monday. The weekend was a quick blur but it looks like we’ve got a couple extra days off coming, in the northeast anyway. What the weather folks are calling a “potentially historic blizzard” is set to cover the northeastern United States and, honestly, I could use a little time nestled on

What We’re Loving: Pick-Me-Up Comfort Foods

It must be something about the holidays, or January, or the fact that we all had to leave warm, cozy kitchens for the real world, but everyone (including me!) seems to have something. Sniffles, colds, or just feeling a little under the weather… something. The sub-zero temperatures aren’t helping, I imagine. But what can help
