What We Love: French Food Gifts for Any Occasion

From buttery, flaky croissants with homemade jam to a pot of comforting soup with a crusty baguette, there is just something magical about French food gifts. And we love them all. In honor of our French week—have you seen our other posts on the Café Gourmande, Paris Markets, and Parisian Jam?—we wanted to take a

We’ve been rolling out a new line of Maker Boxes over the past few weeks, which are gift boxes sourced from a single, wonderful maker that we adore, and shipped directly from them to you. Our previous box was the Kate Bakes Bars Collection, a sampler box of vegan power bars with a short ingredient

What We Love: Sweet French Recipes

What We Love: Sweet French Recipes

I remember the exact moment I fell head-over-to-the-moon in love with Paris. All it took was a simple bite of an éclair from a hole-in-the-wall bakery in Montmartre. Somehow every happy and beautiful moment of my life was captured in each bite of airy pastry, dark chocolate, and vanilla cream. This was not the grocery-store, soggy, yellow-custard-filled éclairs of my youth. Oh

Socca: Chickpea Flour Crepes You Have to Try

Socca – The Chickpea Flour Crepes You Have to Try

My first taste of Socca was in Nice, where the golden triangles are sold at markets and out of stalls on nearly every corner – it’s practically the city’s official snack! A friend and I ate it up within seconds, marveling over the texture and taste, and wondering how to make it at home. Thanks

What We Love: Homemade Gifts for Mother’s Day

What We Love: Homemade Gifts for Mother’s Day

It’s not easy to buy a gift for my mother. Growing up, she acted plenty excited and surprised when she unwrapped my attempts, but I rarely saw her using the necklace/key-chain/pretty box that I’d picked for her. However, she was always thrilled to pieces when my brother and I made breakfast in bed for her.

For Mother’s Day: Rhubarb Rose Cake

I’m going to be overseas this Mother’s Day. I won’t leave, however, without getting my Mother a bottle of bubbly and placing this cake in the fridge, promise, Mom. Thanks, Molly, for making me look good, in advance. ~Maggie Mother’s Day is just a few days away and I always struggle with what to get.

Sometimes I crave chocolate… really good chocolate. Lately, I’ve been turning to Farmhouse Truffles for my fix. The line of treats are named for the Vermont farmhouse in which Erlé and Eliza LaBounty began making truffles. Today, Farmhouse Truffles makes chocolate-y sweets with no shortcuts and no additives – just pure and intense chocolate. The single

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

Gift Wrap: How to Wrap Muffins and Cupcakes

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

Multigrain Breakfast Porridge with Bruleed Bananas and Coconut Flakes

On the weekends, I make a porridge so similar to this one. With bruleed bananas and coconut flakes and all those good-for-you grains, this version by Sheila is darling and scrumptious. It will make a weekend get-together extra nutritious… and sweet. ~Maggie This time last year, I was working at a lovely, charming cafe in

Adding Whole Grains to Your Morning with Maker and Cookbook Author Megan Gordon

As many of you know, we’ve been long-time fans of Marge Granola and have worked with her for more than three years. So we were pretty tickled when its founder, Megan Gordon, wrote an entire cookbook, Whole Grain Morning: New Breakfast Recipe to Span the Seasons, last year devoted to eating a happy and healthy breakfast.

5 Little Luxuries for Your Spring Kitchen

Hello, ladies and gents. I am feeling like the thick of spring is just waiting for all of us around the next bend. In another few weekends, we’ll hear way more birds chirping, we’ll see the beginning of little blossoms popping up, and we’ll feel the urgency to dig our hands in the dirt or

Tea-Smoked Duck Breast and Pickled Rhubarb

Tea-Smoked Duck Breast and Pickled Rhubarb

Food gifts run the spectrum from sweet and sugary to savory and nutritious. Sean’s Tea-Smoked Duck Breast is savory and so thoughtful, nourishing in a way that candied gifts just can’t match. Don’t forget the Pickled Rhubarb — it’s just about rhubarb season in some parts and a pickle turns the sweetness into something very
