What We’re Loving: Grilled Cheese

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

What We're Loving: Fresh Fruit Tarts

Do you believe in magic? I do. I’ve seen (and tasted) it first-hand—and not only because I live a stone’s throw from Salem, Ma. Something truly magical happens when plump, ripe fruit meets flaky, pastry crust. It’s like watching two kindred souls unite, and you’re suddenly entranced by the beautifully crafted fresh fruit tart. And

What We’re Loving: Sangria

What We’re Loving: Sangria

Ooh, ooh, ooh, it’s magic! Ya know-w-w-wwww…. This is what runs through my mind when I think about Sangria. Wine + fruit + time = Spanish genius, and a beverage that goes down far too easily. The beauty of it is both the simplicity and endless possibility; sangria can be made red, white, or virgin

What We’re Loving: Adult Milkshakes

What We're Loving: Adult Milkshakes

As I’ve gotten (just a wee bit) older, I cherish those rare moments when I get to feel like a little kid again. And sipping a frothy shake on a warm summer’s day is an easy way to return to simpler times spent running through sprinklers, hiding in hopes that someone will seek, and knowing all troubles will vanish in a parent’s embrace. Now take

Love Your Kitchen and Happy Birthday, Eat Boutique

Love Your Kitchen and Happy Birthday, Eat Boutique

I also started Eat Boutique — but let’s talk about that in a few paragraphs. I’d rather, first, tell you about learning to love my kitchen. When we moved into this 100-year-old farm house set on an old apple orchard, the kitchen was the heart of the home, quite literally. It was in the very

What We’re Loving: Avocado

by Rachel Wilson
What We’re Loving: Avocado

I usually try to eat as locally and seasonally as possible, but there are some foods for which I’ll make an exception. Until I move back to California and get an avocado tree in my yard, avocado will have to be one of those foods. We always have some on hand these days to feed

What We’re Loving: Lemons

by Kate H. Knapp
Seven Lovely Lemon Recipes

Lemons are so lovely. They can make a cup of tea cozy, cool a hot afternoon, elevate a hum-drum dish, and add zest to an otherwise zestless dessert. Gorgeously tart citrus are a cook’s best friend and a baker’s delight; finding a home in both the sweet and savory, as well as in my heart.

What We’re Loving: Gelato

What We’re Loving: Gelato

You scream, I scream, we all scream for… gelato? Oh, yes. Yes, yes, YES. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m all over good old American ice cream but when I tried my first spoon of creamy, velvety, ludicrously flavorful gelato, I knew ice cream was going to have to budge over and share its space

What We’re Grilling: Recipes for the 4th of July

Happy (early) Fourth of July everyone! I don’t have the statistics to back me up on this, but I suspect that our Nation’s Birthday is the day that the largest number of barbeque grills are used in the United States (followed by Labor Day and Memorial Day). If you aren’t hosting a BBQ, you’ll probably

What We’re Loving: Figs

by Kate H. Knapp
What We're Loving: Figs

Ah, sweet and seductive figs. Though I grew up eating Fig Newtons—delightfully unaware that the fig in the name referred to an actual fruit—my love affair with the purple and plump figs didn’t truly begin until breakfast one morning in Paris (as so many epic romances do). Sitting with my adorable mom—who happens to be

What We’re Loving: Smoothies

What We’re Loving: Smoothies

My best friend recently got a Vitamix in the mail from her mother-in-law, and I immediately began to “ooh” and “ahh,” as I’d coveted this particular appliance for many, many years. My husband had told me to just buy one already (after he’d caught me looking at different models on the internet one time too

What We’re Loving: Cherries

What We’re Loving: Cherries

So I might have this all-consuming love of cherries. The sort of love that has me justifying a giant paper bag of the ripest ones as lunch. Luckily, I am in the south of France right now, and positively swimming in them. The French take their cherries seriously, as do I, which is why overflowing

What We’re Loving: Flaky Phyllo

by Kate H. Knapp
chicken pot pie phyllo

Magic. How else can one explain the dazzling layers of delightfully flaky dough that create such a myriad of different dishes? It has to be some sort of sorcery that turns something so delicate into a delicious dish (and why it always seems to vanish so quickly). I personally fell under its spell with my

What We’re Loving: Cream

When I was young, my great-grandparents had a small ranch. I was lucky enough to live just down the gravel lane from them, and spent most of my childhood running in the pasture and chasing after cows. My great-grandmother had one milking cow, tan in color and easily distinguished from the others, and she milked

My daughter was born almost nine months ago, and has now been eating solid foods for just under three months. As she and I embark on this new culinary journey together, I’ve been reading a lot (books, articles, blogs – you name it) on the many ways I can help her become an adventurous eater.
