I drink my coffee black, just like Denise. And my morning ritual sounds almost identical. Great minds, Denise. I especially appreciate the video on how to make a pot of coffee with your Chemex. -Maggie About a year ago, I decided to give up adding rich, luscious cream to my daily cups of coffee.  I

One Dish Eggplant Parmesan

One Dish Eggplant Parmesan

There are days when having a full, steaming stovetop or an uncomfortably full oven is lovely. Then there are days when it can be hell – for instance, when you have just brought home a new baby or started a new job; when relatives have descended or unexpected guests move in. That’s when the One

Can you tell we have a thing here at Eat Boutique for citrus? It just makes us swoon. Take for example the recent rash of grapefruit recipes, which include  Grapefruit Blood Orange Granita and Grapefruit Sloe Gin Fizz; and then there’s just general citrus love with Rachel’s Seven Citrus-licious Confections. Today, Denise makes citrus hot….literally.

Asian Turkey Noodle Soup

Asian Turkey Noodle Soup

Soup is a seriously under appreciated food group, which is really a shame; after all, it’s both nourishing and hydrating, and you get to nurse a big, hot, bowl.  I think a major factor in the soup drought is fear of or unease with making stock. Thankfully, Denise shares both a delightfully unusual recipe, and

Chai Hot Chocolate

Chai Hot Chocolate

I am a huge fan of chai. In fact, I’ll probably sneak too many recipes into my forthcoming cookbook. And when I asked Denise to explore the world of chai spices, she served up her favorite hot chocolate. This warm, spicy drink charms me to no end and, for sure, will keep me chained to

Middle Eastern Inspired Black Rice Salad

I have been eating a somewhat vegetarian menu daily since we hit 2014, and always have extra rice pre-cooked, waiting in the fridge for a quick meal. Denise has made my life with this new salad. Seriously, life made. -Maggie Since coming down from the holidays, my go-to comfort food has been a big bowl

Stuffed Butternut Squash

Stuffed Butternut Squash

I was raised to believe that experimentation in the kitchen can lead to culinary genius (bananas and peanut butter sandwiches, anyone?). Happy accidents or serendipitous spills make the most brilliant dishes. Patience is key, because a recipe may transform itself many times over before revealing its true purpose. This is the beauty of cooking, and we’re thrilled to share

Apple Orange Hot Toddy

When the air gets nippy, we want a hot beverage (with just a little booze) to help combat the cold. Thankfully, Denise has a Hot Toddy with a dash of homemade apple simple syrup and a bit of orange that is sure to warm those chilly afternoons.  All that’s left to do is sip and sigh

Belle Chevre DIY Cheese Kit

I love making my own cheese – it seems very homesteader like and makes me feel like I can do anything in the kitchen. This kit would totally be a welcome addition to my kitchen with it’s versatile uses and the cooking ideas Denise gives me. I’m thinking a bit of chèvre with roasted blueberries is a

Fluffy White Cake

I’m used to unusual and beautiful eats, but Denise’s almost otherworldly confection, inspired by Miche Bacher’s new cookbook Cooking with Flowers, swept even me away. I can imagine bringing this out at the tail end of a cozy dinner party in the garden…that’s not me tearing up from the beauty of it all, I promise.

  Even as we wipe our brows and throw open our windows in hopes of a passing breeze, Denise reminds us why we should love the boiling heat. This refreshing recipe for a boozy summer dessert is just what the doctor ordered. Enjoy and stay cool! – Amy   One of the great things about

A Twist on Pot Au Feu

It’s stormy outside right now, so I want soup. I threw out a very special challenge to Denise for a dish close to my heart. She triumphed! – Maggie When Maggie talks Paris, I’m right there with her. And when she mentioned crafting a Pot au Feu recipe, my mind jumped on a plane straight

Chicken Paillard

I’m always looking for new ways to cook your basic chicken breast, but I always fall back on the best recipe: Chicken Paillard. Denise’s version keeps the skin on, but it works well for skinless chicken breasts as well. -Maggie I have fond memories of my great-aunt puttering around the kitchen. She was always getting

Homemade Baguette

Having people gather in my home (and by home, I mean, right in my kitchen) to eat and drink and talk and laugh is one of my favorite things.  And I like to do the cooking, coming up with a special menu for each occasion. Why not do the same for new neighbors? What better

Beef and Guinness Pie

This recipe warms our hearts and our bellies. It is the perfect little pot of dinner. Pour some red and follow Denise’s instructions – both for cooking and for dining fireside. I plan to. And, I’d love to hear what else you are making that will warm you up this winter. -Maggie I have been
