What We Love: Father’s Day Food Gifts

What We Love: Father’s Day Gifts

I think everyone who knows him would agree that my dad is a pretty unique character. His needs are few, and if he wants something he generally buys it himself. His tastes are also simple. Let’s just say that he and my 22-month-old daughter have very similar palates, and feeding both can be a challenge

What We Love: French Food Gifts for Any Occasion

What We Love: French Food Gifts for Any Occasion

From buttery, flaky croissants with homemade jam to a pot of comforting soup with a crusty baguette, there is just something magical about French food gifts. And we love them all. In honor of our French week—have you seen our other posts on the Café Gourmande, Paris Markets, and Parisian Jam?—we wanted to take a

What I Miss Most About Paris: the Cafe Gourmande

by Maggie Battista
Cafe Gourmande

It’s no surprise that I generally always miss Paris. I think everyone who appreciates Paris misses Paris, right? Do you? I miss the scent of the grey streets in the early morning after a night of hard rain. I crave the afternoon aromas of freshly baked bread and the imagery of sharply-dressed business men lopping

Learn to Cook in France: The Cook’s Atelier

I’ve known about The Cook’s Atelier for a long time; their style is just that memorable. Mother and daughter duo Marjorie and Kendall run this cooking school in the tiny (and lovely) city of Beaune, France where they’ve most recently also opened an online shop filled with new and vintage French-inspired finds. These two make

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

La Chambre Aux Confitures: The Parisian Jam Shop You Must Visit

When I think of Paris, everything sweet comes to mind. And this new boutique totally dedicated to sweet preserves is now at the top of my list for my next trip. Thanks to Lindsey for encouraging us to get to know La Chambre Aux Confitures, and Amy for all the tasting over there. ~Maggie When

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.

Frozen Dark Chocolate Smoothie with Whipped Coconut Cream

Before I skipped town, I wrote a few recipes for your spring-time enjoyment. Here’s one of them. Enjoy and I’ll be back soon, promise! ~Maggie I am consistently searching for a sweet little something for those afternoon moments when I can’t seem to distract myself by a long walk, a peek at the ocean (which

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.

For Mother’s Day: Rhubarb Rose Cake

I’m going to be overseas this Mother’s Day. I won’t leave, however, without getting my Mother a bottle of bubbly and placing this cake in the fridge, promise, Mom. Thanks, Molly, for making me look good, in advance. ~Maggie Mother’s Day is just a few days away and I always struggle with what to get.

A Taste of History (and Chocolate) in Boston

A Taste of History (and Chocolate) in Boston

I’ve lived in Boston for more than 10 years, and I hate to admit that I’ve taken its incredible history for granted. I recently paid a visit to the Old North Church Campus in the North End, and discovered a treasure trove of historical sites and information. In just one block, you can smell and taste a piece of chocolate

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

What We’re Loving: Herbed Homemade Candy

What We’re Loving: Herbed Homemade Candy

I keep a peppermint dark chocolate bar in my desk drawer at all times, and I’ll snack on a square in moments of stress, or when I have a spare moment in my day, or just because it’s Tuesday. Mint is an herb that is often associated with dessert, but pastry chefs and home cooks

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

Apotheker’s Kitchen: Bee-Sweetened Hot Cocoa & The Secret Life of Chocolatiers

Just one taste of their honey-sweetened confections, and you know instantly that Russ and Shari Apotheker of Apotheker’s Kitchen were destined to create all-natural and delicious chocolates (and marshmallows, for that matter). Their handcrafted treats are made with only the very best ingredients, like their chocolate, which is organically and biodynamically grown and sourced from a small,
