Kennebunkport, Maine: A Spot for Lovers, Eaters and Anyone, Really

When people ask me about Maine, I tell them that my now husband and I took our first summer vacation there more than 10 years ago. We fell in love somewhere between the rustic shack on the sea and the smoked mussels on our plates, mussels that were beyond everything, salty, meaty and light in

Eating Paleo, Deliciously: Diana Rodger’s The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook

I’ve known Diana Rodgers for about 10 years now. She and her husband Andrew — I call him Farmer Andrew! — have operated every community-supported agriculture program I’ve ever belonged to. Through them, I learned to love all greens, especially Swiss chard and kale; I learned all about composting; I learned how social pigs are

Bon Appetit: Mimi Thorisson on her Kitchen in France & her Aunt’s Fava Bean Soup

Warning: This article may inspire you to move to a farmhouse in France. Mimi Thorisson has that power. I started reading her blog, Manger, years ago and I’m still plotting my escape overseas. Mimi’s life on her stunning farmhouse in France, complete with adorable children and cuter-than-cute dogs, would be enough reason to make us jump ship, but then

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,

Dave’s Coffee Talks (Coffee) Shop, Tiramisu, & Boozy Coffee Milk

Coffee. Incredible how one simple word can cause such happiness. And one small Rhode Island company is certainly making people smile with their one-of-a-kind creations. We’ve been long-time fans of Dave’s Coffee–in fact, their coffee syrup is always a big hit at our pop-up events and we’ve even featured their shop before. We caught up with Dave Lanning, CEO of Dave’s Coffee, to

Sunday Donuts & Drip Coffee Social with Eat Boutique

Today. Today is the day. Today Eat Boutique’s Holiday Pop-Up Shop opens its doors, and stays that way until just before Christmas! We are so elated and giddy and excited about this, because we get to be open for most of December,  instead of just one (crazy-lovely) day. And that means making our adorable space

Celebrate Beaujolais Nouveau with a French Dinner Party

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

A Food Gift Love Dinner with Brooklyn Brewery and Maggie Battista

I’m thrilled because… guess what… I’ve turned in my manuscript for my cookbook, Food Gift Love. I’m elated and feel a lightness that is incomparable to anything except, perhaps, that end-of-the-semester moment in college when you finish all your exams, only better. It’s like my nights and weekends and very early mornings and that time

Travel Bite: Berkshires’ Mezze Bistro + Farm Egg on Peas, Favas, and Scapes

In the last few days, I’ve shared some of my favorite makers and a killer coffeehouse in western Massachusetts’ the Berkshires. Now I’d like to tell you about a lovely spot for a one-of-a-kind dinner, as well as a recipe for you to try at home. It’s no secret that I love to share food. You see,

You’ve already read about a few of my favorite stops in the Berkshires, but I’m back to share a coffee shop after my own heart, as well as an amazing recipe for affogato, an Italian dessert that “drowns” ice cream in espresso. My love letter to coffee usually begins the same way: “I never felt

Travel Bite: A Food-Lover’s Tour of The Berkshires

You never know what you might find if you just keep driving. This was one of my mother’s favorite lessons, which always resulted in long hours spent exploring back roads in our beastly tan minivan. Every time she felt a bit restless, we set out on a great adventure in search of the perfect steak,

I turned in the manuscript for the Food Gift Love cookbook last week. Oh my, I want to tell you all about it — the chapters, the recipes, all the feelings behind finally finishing 60,000+ words — but I’m going to reserve an entire story just to share. For now, I’m getting back out there

Interview: Two Hands Cafe in New York City

There’s been some buzz about a little Australian cafe in New York City, sandwiched right between Little Italy and Chinatown – talk about international! The talk stems from excellent coffee, munch-able snacks, a gorgeous location, and the love and dedication of the two Sydney-born owners, Giles Russell and Henry Roberts. Luckily Josephine, a recent NYC

Four Summer Picnic Tartines Recipes

We love tartines. Even more so, we love tartines made with homemade bread and gorgeous ingredients. Josephine’s petite sandwiches have us ready to whip out the picnic-ware and hit the road. These are perfect for sophisticated alfresco dining or an exceptional lunch, and could easily be a star appetizer. The bread was made by and

Vermont is for (Pie) Lovers

Vermont is for (Pie) Lovers

I ran off to Vermont a few weeks ago. I did not pass Go. I did not collect two hundred dollars. But unlike my favorite board game (ever), on the other end of the two plus hour drive, I found (pie) heaven. I escaped to have a little family time, take long walks with the
