Love Your Kitchen and Happy Birthday, Eat Boutique

Love Your Kitchen and Happy Birthday, Eat Boutique

I also started Eat Boutique — but let’s talk about that in a few paragraphs. I’d rather, first, tell you about learning to love my kitchen. When we moved into this 100-year-old farm house set on an old apple orchard, the kitchen was the heart of the home, quite literally. It was in the very

6 Questions for Karen Solomon (author, Asian Pickles) and Wasabi Pickled Carrots

I met Karen Solomon on the streets of San Francisco in April 2013. I was waiting for a taxi to the airport when she walked right out of her apartment building. I promise I had no idea it was her apartment building but when I asked if she was the cookbook author, well, I’m certain

by Angela Brown
What They Eat: Killer Scallion Kimchi

A fridge full of quick wins is what keeps us all going. After long days running a super successful New York City food business, Angela piles this on top of her humble dinner and, wow, when can we have some? If you missed Angela’s first post on the trials and loves of starting a food

How to Gift Wrap a Bottle

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,

Revitalizing Wooden Ware: Beeswax and Mineral Wood Preserver

Revitalizing Wooden Ware: Beeswax and Mineral Wood Preserver

Every loved kitchen has them – cooking artifacts. The dishes and tools that have a story behind them, and have been used like a much-hugged teddy bear. If one of your kitchen artifacts is a slightly dimmed piece of wooden ware, fear not! Not only can it be cleaned up, but made just like new,

Old Italian uncles, a much-loved and much-tested bread, and some killer apricots? Count me in! – Amy I have this really, really cute great-uncle. His name is Evo, and he’s 100% Italian – which, waaaay back when, apparently wasn’t a “favorable” trait when it came to courting my aunt. But since he’s really, really cute,

One Dish Eggplant Parmesan

One Dish Eggplant Parmesan

There are days when having a full, steaming stovetop or an uncomfortably full oven is lovely. Then there are days when it can be hell – for instance, when you have just brought home a new baby or started a new job; when relatives have descended or unexpected guests move in. That’s when the One

You might say I’ve become addicted to Pop-Up Shops… I get the chance to meet you all, talk about our favorite makers and their products, and the atmosphere is a little more relaxed than a full blown Holiday Market; I also love curating the perfect table of goodies for the season. Eat Boutique has a

Ginger Cornmeal Biscotti

Ginger Cornmeal Biscotti

I am baking almost daily right now and Matthew’s charming take on very special biscotti will definitely find a slot in my roster, somewhere between the strong espresso and glass of Vin d’Orange. And always with close friends. Thanks, Matthew! -Maggie Growing up in a large Italian family, there was never a lack of desserts

Sesame Bars with Thyme

by Maggie Battista
Pasteli Sesame Bar with Thyme and Lemon Zest

I am a huge fan of sesame seeds. When I was in my twenties and living in New York City, my daily routine included a bland street coffee and a heavy freshly-made sesame seed bagel, not toasted and loaded with salty butter. The sesame side, that single half that is covered in seeds, remains my

Eat Boutique Pop Up at Fringe

Eat Boutique Pop Up at Fringe

Pop up shops are the best. The sweet and funky shop we set up at Fringe in Somerville, Massachusetts last month was almost too rad for words. Okay, I’ll find some… how about… Thank you! Really, I’m just so grateful that hundreds of you showed up to take a peek at our collection of food

Food Gift Love: Spiced Pear Vodka

Food gifts do not stop after the holidays. This vodka is something you could give me anytime of year: to celebrate the first snow fall, to celebrate when the Polar Vortex finally disappears for good, or to just celebrate our (virtual) friendship – that’s a good reason! -Maggie I’ve never been a fan of syrupy-sweet-flavored

Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

by Amy Feiereisel
vday

Until I went away to college, I received at least one Valentine’s Day card and a few presents each year…but never from a boy. Who was this mystery gifter? My mother. Every year, without fail, I would come home from school to balloons, chocolates, and strawberries cut in the shape of hearts (which were my

Handmade Gifts: Granola Nut Clusters

by Jennifer Menery
Handmade Gifts: Granola Nut Clusters

I love filling the house with the smell of homemade granola, it automatically puts me in a festive mood. I also love baking gifts, especially for my health conscious and vegan friends. Angela, of Oh She Glows, shares her delicious recipe for her Granola Nut Clusters. That’s right, these are granola covered nuts. And for those
