In Maggie’s Kitchen: Morning Polenta Porridge, a Cookbook Update and Spring Events

Happy Monday, my friends, Let’s enjoy this last week of February, and talk mostly foodstuff and a little bit of other stuff. Cookbook Update: I’m having so much fun finishing up this cookbook, and while I know the release date is more than six months away, I know it will be here super quick. I’m

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

In Maggie’s Kitchen: Pop-Up Thanks, Snack Mix and Parsley Sauce

New England is having a day, a week, a month. One more snowstorm and we’ll be awarded the snowiest winter on record (ever) award. All I want to do is bake lots of things (perhaps from my Bake Me Something Good board) and eat it all up, but instead, I’ll share what’s up this week. Pop-Up

What are you doing for Valentine’s weekend? Well, of course, it’s a weekend. When the holiday falls on a Saturday, the whole weekend becomes a celebration of love or hot and spicy food or small-batch chocolate or binge-watching Downton Abbey or every single Beyonce video with some ice cream. You know, you choose. Valentine’s Day

DIY Gift Wrap and Love Letters for Valentine’s Day or Any Day

If you’ve been to my home, you know that this Food Gift Love thing is no joke. I live it, quite naturally. However, I didn’t realize it was the making of a cookbook until I started storing everything in a single place in my home. Before, bits and bobs were floating all around, sometimes, never,

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,

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

Hey there, It’s back-to-business-Monday, folks, but before you lose yourself in that new work project, let’s talk foodstuff. You know, the sort of talk that reminds you that your job is great but the real you comes to life in the kitchen. Right? Right. Homemade Chicken Stock: In case you missed this new recipe, I

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

Hey there, Welcome to Monday. The weekend was a quick blur but it looks like we’ve got a couple extra days off coming, in the northeast anyway. What the weather folks are calling a “potentially historic blizzard” is set to cover the northeastern United States and, honestly, I could use a little time nestled on

Hey there friends, Happy brand new week. To get ready for it, I’ve made a pot of quinoa, a big batch of black bean soup and a first-attempt at cashew milk. So, yes, it’s been a pretty great weekend and all the time in the kitchen gives me great focus. Here are some other things

Hello friends, Don’t you just love that it’s 2015!? Sometimes, I need a good excuse to start fresh and that’s just what I’m doing right this very moment, while gobbling down a thick slice of this coffee cake from a friend. I’m going to keep today’s memo short and jam-packed with links for your new

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

Five Reasons to Love Share Boards (and What’s a Share Board?)

Share Boards: Why I Love Them and YOU Should Too

As we head into the last celebration of 2014, I wanted to gush for a moment on what you probably call cheese plates or meat plates or some-plate-filled-with-cheese-and-meat-and-crackers-and-such. I now affectionately call them “Share Boards” — because they always end up being big boards or entire tables filled with anything delicious upon which we all
