The Easiest Meyer Lemon Jam

by Maggie Battista
Meyer Lemon Jam // eatboutique.com

Meyer lemons were the very first fruit I preserved more than seven years ago, or in other words, forever-ago. I probably should have taken it easy on myself by jamming apples or strawberries, but I didn’t. I attacked the fancy fruit head on because, first, I’m nuts like that and, second, they really do make

The Gift of Homemade Chicken Stock

The Gift of Homemade Chicken Stock

I bet you think this is going to be a story about chicken stock. Don’t be silly. Just because you see pretty images of carrots and fennel and onions and celery and actual chicken stock doesn’t mean I’m going to write about chicken stock. Instead, I’m going to tell you that it’s stock season and

What We’re Loving: Party Dips to Please a Crowd

Ok, here goes. I am not, nor have I ever been, a football fan (please don’t hate me). I am, however, a huge fan of any excuse to bring people together and eat, which is why I tend to like sporting events like the Superbowl. I mean, what’s not to like? Friends gather together over a variety of finger

Grapefruit & Kumquat Campari Syrup Cake

Grapefruit & Kumquat Campari Syrup Cake

I first drank Campari overseas, when all my French and Italian friends pressured me into my first easy sip. Easy, it was, and I’ve now come to love bitter aperitif, as well as almost anything it touches, like grapefruit and kumquats. Oh, and sign me up for all cakes with bitter and sweet citrus flavors.

Feast On This: The Beauty and Charm of Calligraphy with Jenny Milwid

The Beauty and Charm of Calligraphy with Jenny Milwid

It’s rare to receive a handwritten anything, really, these days (let’s start sending postcards, ok?), which is why we are in awe of those who put pen to paper with an artistic and elegant flourish. Jenny Milwid, a Boston-based calligrapher and artist (launching a leather goods business later this month), is just such a person,

Jam Tarts from Mrs Wheelbarrow’s Practical Pantry

I could type a million wonderful things about Cathy Barrow. I could tell you about how sweet she was to me and so many others as an early Food52 community member; we were all just doing our thing, sharing our favorite dishes, and she was the cheerleader of every good recipe. I could tell you

What We’re Loving: Pick-Me-Up Comfort Foods

What We’re Loving: Pick-Me-Up Comfort Foods

It must be something about the holidays, or January, or the fact that we all had to leave warm, cozy kitchens for the real world, but everyone (including me!) seems to have something. Sniffles, colds, or just feeling a little under the weather… something. The sub-zero temperatures aren’t helping, I imagine. But what can help

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

Cranberry and Cocoa Nibs Morning Muffins

Cranberry and Cocoa Nibs Morning Muffins

January is for lighter eating, apparently. But I say, go big or go home with these fresh, bright, crunchy muffins. With a pat of butter or even a swirl of tangy yogurt and chewy honey spread in between muffin halves, they’ll make your morning right. -Maggie They say the most important meal of the day

10 Starter Cookbooks for a Well-Loved Kitchen

10 Starter Cookbooks for a Well-Loved Kitchen

One whiff of cinnamon and I am transported back to my maternal grandmother’s pantry. Amidst the jarred peaches, homemade chili sauce, hanging pots, and jars of mayonnaise (she never refrigerated the stuff, but I somehow survived), there was one shelf stacked high with her favorite cookbooks. She would often send me in search of a particular recipe in

Homemade Grenadine Syrup

Homemade Pomegranate Grenadine Syrup

My home cocktail bar is filled with my favorite small batch gin, vodka, tequila, rum, whiskey, bourbon and rye — say that fives times fast! I keep several compliments like vermouth and various fruit-flavored liquors. And, in addition to homemade simple syrup (1 part water to 1 part sugar) and various bitters, there’s always, always

Warm Rice Pudding with Caramelized Apples

Apple Vanilla Rice Pudding

Just because it’s January doesn’t mean we’ve given up on sweets altogether; we’re just paying closer attention and wholly focused on the ones that matter. And when presented with a stunner like this, a dessert full of sweetened, aromatic rice and tart, warm apples, all of us at Eat Boutique pay attention. Don’t wait for

What We’re Loving: Healthy Lunches

If November is the month for pies, December is definitely the month for cookies. When I was growing up, one of the best holiday surprises was finding a cookie plate on our doorstep that had been dropped off by a friend or neighbor. Now that I’m an adult, there is nothing I love more than

Happy New Year and Cranberry Vanilla Syrup Cocktails

Happy New Year and Cranberry Vanilla Syrup Cocktails

Well, folks, it’s been a year. It’s been the sort of year that teaches you loads about yourself — what you love to do, what you don’t love so much, and where your sweet spot really is. The holiday pop-up was a revelation — it was so much fun for me! I loved hearing your

Maggie’s Kitchen Memo: XXXXX

Hey there, I love that 2014 is coming to a close. It was a great year, but the opportunity for a fresh start — a blank canvas, a new year, a new you — is most certainly hard to pass up. It’s just the excuse we all need, if you need one, to try a
