What We’re Loving: Spring Peas

by Amy Feiereisel
Fresh Green Peas

As the world unfurls from a harsh winter, as shoots force themselves out into the Spring sun, there is nothing harder than waiting for the markets to reflect the new life all around us. We are so close. So close to full markets and gardens, to leafy, colorful produce spilling out of grocery bags. Often I find myself

Six Ridiculously Delicious Rhubarb Recipes

Want to know a (not-so-secret) secret? Maggie is crazy—as in over the moon—about rhubarb. How do I know? Let’s just say that the last few weeks of recipe testing for her upcoming cookbook, Food Gift Love, have included a delightful amount of rhubarb-centric recipes. Not that I’m complaining. I have been hopelessly devoted to the

Seven Buzz-Worthy Ways to Enjoy Espresso

by Kate H. Knapp
Espresso

My love for coffee began when my grandmother and I would “have coffee,” meaning she would add just a teeny splash to my milk and serve it to me in a mug way too big for my face. In those moments of sipping my coffee, I felt like I had been granted access to a

Five Reasons to Fall for Campari

Oh, Campari, how I have loathed and loved you. And I am not alone. Many find the first few sips of this scarlet-hued liqueur to be a bit abrasive. It is only after persevering through a bit of face puckering that one discovers how delightful and strangely addictive the bitter-orange-flavored elixir can be. My love

Five Simple, Stunning Crostinis

I come from a long line of hosts and hostesses—my parents write menus like most people write daily to-do lists—so the urge to throw a dinner party is in my blood. I can’t help it; I love preparing a meal for the people I hold most dear in this world. I find entrees exciting and

Six Reasons Why We Love Maple

I’ll let you on a little secret, I was a pancake purist in my youth—I thought hotcakes were too precious to be soaked in syrup, so I instead opted for just a bit of butter and a sprinkling of sugar. I would turn my nose up in dramatic disgust as my family drowned their fluffy flapjacks

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

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

What We’re Loving: Fondue

When I was a kid and life became a little too serious—which can happen when there’s a divorce, a menagerie of rescued pets, and two strong-minded siblings—my mother would pull out the fondue pot in hopes of lightening the mood. She knew the somewhat silly and playful meal would make it impossible for us hold

What We’re Loving: Tea Time

Black Honey Tea Cake

I was seven years old when my father gave me my first real (as in it wasn’t made of plastic, was refreshingly free of stickers, and was incredibly fragile) tea set. My dapper dad had lived in England when he was a child, and some of his fondest memories surrounded afternoon tea time (he somehow

What We’re Loving: Traditional Holiday Drinks

Whether it’s a warm glass of hot buttered rum after a day in the snow or a frosty mug of rich eggnog on Christmas morning, there’s nothing quite like a traditional holiday cocktail to celebrate the season. Thankfully, I grew up with a mother who is an expert eggnog maker and whips up a batch

Handmade Gifts: Candy Cane Meringues

by Kate H. Knapp

Out of the many holiday treats my grandma would make (and there were plenty), there was just one my grandfather waited (quite impatiently) for each year: The meringue cookie. He adored their crunchy exterior which was immediately followed by a melt-in-your mouth sugary perfection. I remember the look of glee on his face when the

Handmade Gifts: Holiday Cookies and Wrapping

by Kate H. Knapp

I’m going to share a little secret with you. It’s no small coincidence that my favorite Sesame Street character growing up was the Cookie Monster. I empathized deeply to his outpouring of emotion over sugary treats. And even though I’m no longer a little kid, I still believe that there are few things in this

What We’re Loving: Gingerbread

by Kate H. Knapp
snowflake cookies

My family is very sweet—and yes, it’s mostly because of the massive amounts of sugar we consume over the holidays. Growing up, I equated the most wonderful time of year with the smorgasbord of colorful cookies, candies, and cake my mom and grandma would bake. Though I loved them all, my heart truly belonged to
