The Simplest Hostess Gift: Sinful Garlic Bread

by Denise Woodward & Laudalino Ferreira
Simple and Giftable Garlic Bread

With just a week leading up to Christmas and New Years, I believe you’re the sort who has at least one dinner party to attend. Forget the wine, table the flowers, and let someone else handle dessert. You bring this and bake it at the party — make sure to ask the hostess for a

Spiced Pumpkin Bread with Walnuts, Ricotta, and Pomegranate Seeds

Let’s backseat every other kind of homemade bread, the quintessential food gift, for just a moment to gaze at this fall and winter stunner. Judi’s Spiced Pumpkin Bread is the sort of edible gift I want to receive from my neighbor (hint hint) or an Eat Boutique colleague (hint hint hint). You bring the bread, I’ll bring the

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

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,

What We’re Loving: Grilled Cheese

What We’re Loving: Grilled Cheese

Did you know that the nation just celebrated a major holiday? Did you participate? Perhaps with some cheddar, or gruyere, for the more exotic? For those who have absolutely no idea what I’m talking about, it was National Grilled Cheese Day yesterday! It may seem a little silly that such a simple thing has its

What We’re Loving: Cherries

What We’re Loving: Cherries

So I might have this all-consuming love of cherries. The sort of love that has me justifying a giant paper bag of the ripest ones as lunch. Luckily, I am in the south of France right now, and positively swimming in them. The French take their cherries seriously, as do I, which is why overflowing

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,

Cinnamon Sugar Doughnut Muffins

Cinnamon Sugar Doughnut Muffins

How is that a sprinkle (or a dousing) of cinnamon sugar makes everything better? As a devoted cinnamon-sugar-on-my-pancakes child, I know well the magic of the crunchy, slightly spicy combination. Cloud-like doughnut muffins rolled in this? Bliss. -Amy  Cinnamon Sugar Doughnut Muffins Mix up your donut muffin batter. Cover them in melted butter. Roll them

These muffins check all the homey boxes. Warm, nutty, and infused with the deep flavor of coffee, they’re a great baked good for a blustery day. Smell up the house with toasted coconut, get the kitchen all cozy and warm, and say adieu to winter! -Amy I’ve never actually used coffee as an ingredient before,

Seven Ways to Eat England

Seven Ways to Eat England

The women in my family share many qualities; one of the least embarrassing to admit is a love for all things British. Our ladies-only get-togethers include our version of “high tea,” complete with scones, finger sandwiches and pastries. We pass around both fiction and non-fiction works by British authors, and can’t get enough of the

Irish Farmer’s Cake

I still haven’t visited Ireland. What’s wrong with me?! My husband became a full-fledged Irish citizen in 2013 and, drats, life has just gotten in our way. Thank goodness for Elizabeth McNally of Wee Kitchen. For St. Patrick’s Day, we’re featuring a real Irish recipe, courtesy of our favorite Irish traveler. Elizabeth, the lucky lady,

Chocolate and Cheese Panini

Love means never having to apologize for needing a bit of chocolate every single afternoon. Dark or milk chocolate will do, and it’s even better paired with cheese or fruit or both. Jill satisfies my craving with this perfect pairing of a mild soft cheese with chocolate and strawberries. I know it would impress at

I love comforting dishes that warm your home and your belly. This cornbread is exactly what comes to mind. Sure, a seasoned cast iron skillet will dress up any stovetop, but fill it with cornbread and you’ve got me – I’m yours. Melt some butter on a nice big slice and, all of a sudden,

Rosemary, Shallot and Red Wine Butter

A few weeks ago we suggested that a crusty Homemade Baguette might be just the right way to say “Welcome to the Neighborhood” to the new family next door.  Package up some handmade compound butter a la Lucy’s illustration and nestle it with that crusty bread and you’ll be the talk of the cul-de-sac, in

Having people gather in my home (and by home, I mean, right in my kitchen) to eat and drink and talk and laugh is one of my favorite things.  And I like to do the cooking, coming up with a special menu for each occasion. Why not do the same for new neighbors? What better

We do love the idea of homemade hostess gifts for holiday parties, and really, for any get together or reason to bring something yummy and small batch to someone else.  The ladies at SKS have done it again with these sensational mini loaves – they are seasonal and petite and so pretty. -Maggie Confession: I’m
