What We’re Loving: Spirited Cocktails for Halloween

Come, sit for a spell (sorry just a little Halloween humor). Living just a few miles from Salem, Massachusetts, I appreciate this spooky, kooky, creepy, crawly holiday in a way that goes beyond the scares, tricks, and treats. Halloween, to me, is truly a magical time (and it’s not just because of the witches). When else can

Behind-the-Scenes With We Love Jam

It’s no secret. We absolutely adore We Love Jam, and all of their incredibly tasty and beautiful spreads–we’re even offering a special  price on their Tart Cherry and Apricot Jam for a very limited time in our shop. And since we’re such big fans, we wanted to know more about the two people behind the

Maggie’s Memo: Fall Cookbooks and Sunday Lunch

Happy (fall) Monday, I know everyone’s back to work today but I’d love to provide a little distraction by talking food and drink. And since my amazing team — Amy and Kate — expressly asked me to share more frequently — how I can refuse?! — here’s what’s going on in my world: Sunday lunch: I had lunch on Sunday.

Spicy Sesame Greens

Spicy Sesame Greens

We’re slammed with pounds of bitter greens from our local farmer right now, like arugula, chard, kale, mustard greens and more. For me, it’s heavenly and I just love how the bitter flavor plays against whatever it’s paired with, from steak to lemon-zest-flecked pasta to good crusty bread. On the other hand, my husband prefers

Roasted Pumpkin Soup in Baby Squash Bowls

Roasted Pumpkin Soup in Baby Squash Bowls

Let’s just say I’ve fallen for pumpkin this season — not the canned stuff or the latte syrup (though they have their place, no doubt), but instead, I’m cooking every style of gourd and shape of squash imaginable. And now my friend Sean has raised the bar in such an elegant way. I know what

Oyster Shell Salt Cellars

Oyster Shell Salt Cellars

I’m in gift-giving mode at every moment of the year — not just during the winter holidays — and these DIY oyster shell salt cellars are the perfect hostess gift (we stock gorgeous Jacobsen Salt Co. shells in the Shop – great minds think alike!). Just tuck a pair into a box, add sea salt

What We’re Loving: Homemade Breakfast Bars

What We’re Loving: Homemade Breakfast Bars

For me, breakfast-on-the-go once meant nothing more than coffee in a travel mug. Thankfully, I have since learned the importance of the first meal of the day. And though I still rely on my trusty travel cup o’ joe to start my morning off right, I now accompany it with something a bit more substantial. The

Mushroom Stroganoff Baked Potatoes

Mushroom Stroganoff Stuffed Baked Potatoes

The moment I saw these stuffed baked potatoes from Denise, I suddenly didn’t mind the cold snap or the extra scarf needed to shield myself from the wind. The moment I came in from the cold, I knew I could make these and just go with the season. I’m hosting my own fall supper with

How Sweet it Is? The Life of a Professional Candy Maker

We’re sweet (pardon the pun) on Liddabit Sweets, and for good reason. Founders, Jen King and Liz Gutman, are the brains behind a range of unique candy bars, indulgent caramels, and one-of-a-kind caramel corns that make Liddabit Sweets so very special. Loving a good maker’s tale, we spoke to Jen to learn more about what makes the darling

What We’re Loving: Homemade Pasta Dishes

“Pantry pasta,” or more precisely whatever leftover or canned-good-was-about-to-expire my mother needed to use tossed with spaghetti, was a specialty at our house when I was growing up. My mother never wanted to waste anything, and so we spent many nights dining on colorful pasta dishes made with an assortment of odd ingredients. Watching as those noodles became

Fettucini alla Norma

Fettucini alla Norma

Yesterday Sheila gave a primer on making fresh pasta; today, she shares her favorite pasta sauce to dress it! Run, don’t walk, to the farmer’s market, gather up the last of the tomatoes and eggplant, and settle in for a cozy night of Italian comfort food. -Amy Pasta alla Norma is one of my favorite

Homemade and Handcut Fettuccine

To celebrate National Pasta Day (October 17), I wanted to make sure you knew how to make fresh pasta. I asked Sheila (from the infamously delicious The Market Restaurant in Gloucester, Massachusetts) to share some of her pasta-making expertise with a classic: hand-cut fettuccine. Take a bag to a friend this weekend. And come back

Travel Bite: Berkshires’ Mezze Bistro + Farm Egg on Peas, Favas, and Scapes

In the last few days, I’ve shared some of my favorite makers and a killer coffeehouse in western Massachusetts’ the Berkshires. Now I’d like to tell you about a lovely spot for a one-of-a-kind dinner, as well as a recipe for you to try at home. It’s no secret that I love to share food. You see,

You’ve already read about a few of my favorite stops in the Berkshires, but I’m back to share a coffee shop after my own heart, as well as an amazing recipe for affogato, an Italian dessert that “drowns” ice cream in espresso. My love letter to coffee usually begins the same way: “I never felt

Travel Bite: A Food-Lover’s Tour of The Berkshires

You never know what you might find if you just keep driving. This was one of my mother’s favorite lessons, which always resulted in long hours spent exploring back roads in our beastly tan minivan. Every time she felt a bit restless, we set out on a great adventure in search of the perfect steak,
