What We’re Loving: Holiday Cookie for Gifting

The holidays really are the most wonderful time of year, especially when they are filled with sweet, homemade cookies. The simple gesture of a baked gift is one that goes far with friends, family, and neighbors. Cookies are so popular as a gift, in fact, that people host parties centered around exchanging favorite recipes. These

Baking Chez Moi and Vous with Dorie Greenspan

It’s really quite impossible not to adore Dorie Greenspan. With several incredible cookbooks under her belt–Baking: From My Home to Yours, Around My French Table, and Baking With Julia (yes, the Julia Child)–a lovely blog, and a very popular baking club, Tuesdays With Dorie, as well as the sweetest smile and an ever-so-friendly disposition, she is

Not Without Salt Talks about her New Cookbook & Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies

As the creator of the popular food blog, Not Without Salt, a mother of three young children, and an entrepreneur of a highly-addictive, Salted Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix, the adorable and always-inspiring Ashley Rodriguez is no stranger to a hectic schedule.

Tatte Bakery: The Life and Loves of a Professional Baker

The Lovely Lady Behind Tatte Bakery

Tzurit Or changes people’s lives with simply an oven and a great deal of creativity. It’s true. She weaves magic into her incredibly flaky pastry, coaxes depths of flavor from a simple ingredient, and alters your dessert perceptions with just one bite. She has long been one of our favorite people and owns one of our all-time favorite

Spiced Pumpkin Bread with Walnuts, Ricotta, and Pomegranate Seeds

Let’s backseat every other kind of homemade bread, the quintessential food gift, for just a moment to gaze at this fall and winter stunner. Judi’s Spiced Pumpkin Bread is the sort of edible gift I want to receive from my neighbor (hint hint) or an Eat Boutique colleague (hint hint hint). You bring the bread, I’ll bring the

How to Be a Zen Hostess and Cranberry Crumb Muffins

by Maggie Battista
Cranberry Crumb Muffins and Why You Should Have No Fear This Thanksgiving

Recently, I was speaking with someone about the fear they feel during Thanksgiving… actually whenever she prepares a meal for folks. She shared a story about a crying fit from last Thanksgiving, when the sweet potatoes came out of the oven with a burnt layer of marshmallows on top, all black and crispy. She started

Mrs. Wheelbarrow Dishes About Her New Cookbook & Rugelach

It may come as no surprise that we here at Eat Boutique are wild about the fine art of preserving foods, and simply can’t get enough of innovative ways to save seasonal items for year-round enjoyment. This is why we’re absolutely in awe of Mrs. Wheelbarrow, aka Cathy Wheelbarrow, and her new cookbook, Mrs. Wheelbarrow’s

Pear and Cranberry Upside Down Cake

It’s November and I just want cranberries in all possible forms. This cake has shot up to the top of my cranberry must-bake list. It’s the sort of cake perfect for a potluck dessert, a little neighborly love or just to hang out on the counter for a few days while I cut slivers at

Celebrate Beaujolais Nouveau with a French Dinner Party

by Kate H. Knapp
What We’re Loving: Beaujolais Nouveau Dinner Party

With Beaujolais Nouveau Day fast approaching (the third Thursday in November every year), we’re putting on our menu-planning hats and coming up with ways to celebrate the new wine. Bottled just 6 to 8 weeks after harvest, Beaujolais has very little tannin and typically is quite fruity and light. In fact, some find the purple-pink wine

How Sweet it Is? The Life of a Professional Candy Maker

We’re sweet (pardon the pun) on Liddabit Sweets, and for good reason. Founders, Jen King and Liz Gutman, are the brains behind a range of unique candy bars, indulgent caramels, and one-of-a-kind caramel corns that make Liddabit Sweets so very special. Loving a good maker’s tale, we spoke to Jen to learn more about what makes the darling

What We’re Loving: Pancakes

by Amy Feiereisel
What We’re Loving: Pancakes

Pancakes are magic. They mean home and comfort and lazy mornings and mickey-mouse shaped stacks, ready for gobbling. My favorite Sundays were those my father declared as Breakfast-for-Dinner days; which, of course, meant pancakes. So when I heard September 26 was National Pancake Day? Well, that warrants some celebration, and some of the most funky,

Sweet Loren Cookies: Interview and Giveaway

Sweet Loren Cookies: Interview and Giveaway

Sometimes, you need a cookie asap. If I can’t be bothered to mix up a batch, I break a few Sweet Loren‘s Chocolate Chunk cookies onto a baking sheet and bake. I know that sounds crazy but, oh my goodness, these cookies are perfect for an instant fix. They’re all natural with no refined sugars

What We’re Loving: Fresh Fruit Tarts

by Kate H. Knapp
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

Individual Plum-Frangipane Crostatas

by Molly Shuster
Individual Plum-Frangipane Crostatas

Sometimes only non-pie will do, and these little crostatas are the perfect non-pie desserts to spread out along a big late summer party buffet, or to wrap individually as tiny good-bye summer food gifts to your dearest. Thanks to Molly, you can also fit them snugly into a lunchbox right about now too, and that

Champagne and Peach Sorbet Float

by Denise Woodward & Laudalino Ferreira
Champagne and Peach Sorbet Float

It’s so strange to be writing the Food Gift Love cookbook while celebrating Eat Boutique’s 7th birthday. What’s not so strange is this delightful recipe: peach sorbet made without a machine is perfect, as it encourages quiet time in the summer kitchen. And it encourages drinking Champagne floats. Thanks, Denise! -Maggie When I realized it
