Behind the Scenes: Studio Carta and 15% Sale

Last weekend, I did a little interview with Angela Liguori of Studio Carta for Style Me Pretty Living. It’s always a privilege to write for that site because, oh my goodness, it’s a way to share the good small batch word with their millions of readers. And guess what?! I’ve become a regular contributor to

As I’m writing this cookbook, Food Gift Love, I’m recounting and recording my favorite recipes. It’s been a blast to relive the moment I first tasted homemade fried dough. I’m also playing with my favorite non-traditional pesto recipes, all chunky and green and perfect for the biggest bowl of homemade pasta possible. And spring rhubarb,

Sneak Peek at Food Gift Love Cookbook

Food Gift Love by Our Recipe Testers!

I’m at the peak of the #foodgiftlove cookbook writing process and I’m already dreading the end of all this fun – seriously.

No Recipe for Dulce de Leche Candy, Yet

I watched her move in the kitchen, with a frenetic pace that I’m sure, if bottled, could power the universe. “This candy is so fussy,” she said. “One minute, it’s cooking and the next moment, it’s just a mess.” She means overdue, past done, a big seized-up situation not worthy of the name dulce de

I made a promise to myself when I embarked on writing a cookbook. The promise was simple: I promise to do whatever I need to make sure I appreciate and even enjoy this cookbook writing process.  And no matter how busy I get, I am making sure to do just that. In March, I had the

Food Gift Love Cookbook Update

I’m having a day, a week… oh, it’s really more like, a month. I was in California. Then, I was in France. And then, I was in Germany. I hosted two pop up shops, one at Anthropologie and one at Fringe Union. And next week, I fly west again, for 36 short hours, to host

Oh my goodness, Easter is basically here. It’s crept up on all of us so quickly and now, guess what? The year is almost a third over… Wow. This year, Easter is going to be a little extra special in Maggie-land as my family is coming in for a quick visit. That means, I have

I suppose it’s no surprise that my life has been all consumed by food gifts for the last five years and so intensely for the last 10 weeks of recipe testing for Food Gift Love. It’s a lot of work, of course, but I’m making sure to keep my wits about me (you’re motivating emails

Okay, let’s get a little personal. Sometimes I say the right things and sometimes I say the wrong things. Don’t we all? And then, there are times when the right words tumble out of my mouth at the worst possible time. Worst. It was almost a year ago and it felt like way too much
