In Maggie’s Kitchen: Strawberry Season, Summer Solstice Fingerbread & Stovetop Clam Bakes

The summer solstice is finally behind us. It’s a moment that happens every single year — the longest day of the year — but for some reason, after our long winter, I was cautious about it this year. Sure, it’s been warm but the actually summer solstice, yesterday, was filled with dark clouds, a sky-like faucet of

Good day to you! It feels like summer here. It also feels like there are so many good things happening in the universe. Here are a few: A few years ago, I hung out with Jessica Fechtor and promptly fell for her sweetness and incredibly generous nature. She also happens to be one of those

Hello, Time starts flying the very moment it gets pleasant outside. It’s only June but I need to add another ten dinner parties to my schedule before I miss summer altogether. I also want to share a few more bits and bites. My Three Favorite Irish Things: Ireland holds so many special memories for me

In Maggie’s Kitchen: How My Garden Grows, Summer Sweets, and an Ireland Preview

Hello friends, I’m so glad to be back home on New England soil. Except for today’s rainy chill, it’s warm and cozy and the soil is basically ready to be planted. Since I spent most of May in Ireland, I only got the garden ready for planting in the last week of May, cutting it

Want to Publish a Book? I’ll Tell You How at The Hello Sessions

I just returned from Ireland and wanted to share a quick little love note regarding something that has me so excited. I was invited to share my blog-to-book story at The Hello Sessions, a workshop-based conference designed to help creative entrepreneurs and bloggers find more success.

In Maggie’s Kitchen: Let’s Spend Springtime in Paris

I’m in Europe right now, soaking in the rain and the fog and all that greenery from every Irish vista. You were all completely right – it’s gorgeous and everything I ever imagined. It’s actually providing the perfect pause from my hectic food gift life, the cookbook release planning, and a few new projects that

Food is a Gift (Part 2) and 3 Tips to Help You Gift Food with Confidence

As I type this little novel to you, I’m giggling at its length. Gosh, I’ve got lots to say. I’ll be traveling for two whole weeks and though I’ll post images on Instagram, I won’t be writing too many blog posts from abroad. I guess I’m trying to fit in all the words until I

I call today let’s-get-this-stuff-done Monday. My schedule is packed but I’m just glad to be able to tackle it on this almost 60 degree day in New England (downright balmy). I want to tell you everything but will settle on sharing a bunch of juicy tidbits: Let’s Go to Ireland: In less than two weeks,

Food is a Gift: Part 1

Food is a Gift: Part 1

In my forthcoming cookbook, I write a little about why I started Eat Boutique and why I gift food. I had to write it down somewhere because, gosh, I really didn’t know until I finally typed it into a computer screen. I suppose it’s easy and obvious to say, “gifting food is how I want

Beet Old Fashioned Cocktail

Beet Old Fashioned Cocktail

I’m not drinking too much these days. A bit of a teetotaler, I may sip a hefty splash of red wine here or a flute of champagne there (or, maybe two flutes) but liquor-filled drinks have been lower on my list. Cocktails are so very good — right? — but I’m just feeling like I

In Maggie’s Kitchen:

Thanks to everyone who visited with us last week. Just seeing your smiling faces reminded me of our holiday pop-up late last year. (Heidi put together a nifty montage of some of those images!)

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

In Maggie’s Kitchen: Exploring Brooklyn, Homemade Ramen Bowls, and Upcoming Events

Hey there, everyone, I’m still in New York… Brooklyn, actually. It’s most definitely spring here. There are crocuses peeking through grassy patches, flip-flops everywhere, and faces turned up toward the sun. The line to get to the rooftop bar at my hotel is around the corner. I’m going to soak it in and make this
