What We’re Loving: Pancakes

by Amy Feiereisel
What We’re Loving: Pancakes

Pancakes are magic. They mean home and comfort and lazy mornings and mickey-mouse shaped stacks, ready for gobbling. My favorite Sundays were those my father declared as Breakfast-for-Dinner days; which, of course, meant pancakes. So when I heard September 26 was National Pancake Day? Well, that warrants some celebration, and some of the most funky,

Sweet Loren Cookies: Interview and Giveaway

Sweet Loren Cookies: Interview and Giveaway

Sometimes, you need a cookie asap. If I can’t be bothered to mix up a batch, I break a few Sweet Loren‘s Chocolate Chunk cookies onto a baking sheet and bake. I know that sounds crazy but, oh my goodness, these cookies are perfect for an instant fix. They’re all natural with no refined sugars

What We’re Loving: Fresh Fruit Tarts

What We're Loving: Fresh Fruit Tarts

Do you believe in magic? I do. I’ve seen (and tasted) it first-hand—and not only because I live a stone’s throw from Salem, Ma. Something truly magical happens when plump, ripe fruit meets flaky, pastry crust. It’s like watching two kindred souls unite, and you’re suddenly entranced by the beautifully crafted fresh fruit tart. And

Individual Plum-Frangipane Crostatas

Individual Plum-Frangipane Crostatas

Sometimes only non-pie will do, and these little crostatas are the perfect non-pie desserts to spread out along a big late summer party buffet, or to wrap individually as tiny good-bye summer food gifts to your dearest. Thanks to Molly, you can also fit them snugly into a lunchbox right about now too, and that

Champagne and Peach Sorbet Float

Champagne and Peach Sorbet Float

It’s so strange to be writing the Food Gift Love cookbook while celebrating Eat Boutique’s 7th birthday. What’s not so strange is this delightful recipe: peach sorbet made without a machine is perfect, as it encourages quiet time in the summer kitchen. And it encourages drinking Champagne floats. Thanks, Denise! -Maggie When I realized it

It’s ice cream cake season and, for me, that means it’s any day of the year! Eat Boutique birthday month continues with this simple DIY cake. Lauren adapted an easy recipe for her daughter’s birthday, and you can make it just because. -Maggie When I was a kid, I longed for a summer birthday: no

Aperol Limeade Popsicles

A hot summer night will instantly cool down with these Aperol-filled icy treats. Take a tray to your next backyard barbecue or save them all for you. No judgement. -Maggie It has been hot, hot, hot in Oakland this summer, the way summer should be.  Sundress loving and cocktail sipping weather.  I have to admit,

To kick off the celebration of seven years of Eat Boutique, we’re eating pie. But not just any pie. This one is topped with a crumbly streusel topping that weaves through blueberry puddles and screams New England summer. Happy 7th birthday to us but, more importantly, happy summer to you! -Maggie During the summer in

Vermont is for (Pie) Lovers

by Maggie Battista
Vermont is for (Pie) Lovers

I ran off to Vermont a few weeks ago. I did not pass Go. I did not collect two hundred dollars. But unlike my favorite board game (ever), on the other end of the two plus hour drive, I found (pie) heaven. I escaped to have a little family time, take long walks with the

What We’re Loving: Avocado

by Rachel Wilson
What We’re Loving: Avocado

I usually try to eat as locally and seasonally as possible, but there are some foods for which I’ll make an exception. Until I move back to California and get an avocado tree in my yard, avocado will have to be one of those foods. We always have some on hand these days to feed

What We’re Loving: Lemons

by Kate H. Knapp
Seven Lovely Lemon Recipes

Lemons are so lovely. They can make a cup of tea cozy, cool a hot afternoon, elevate a hum-drum dish, and add zest to an otherwise zestless dessert. Gorgeously tart citrus are a cook’s best friend and a baker’s delight; finding a home in both the sweet and savory, as well as in my heart.

Goat Cheese Cake with Boozy Berries

Now that summer is here, all warm and aromatic and fruity, I’m taking my time. I spent a weekend in Vermont with the family, just long enough to grill up everything, make some fresh pie and drink and laugh until the big supermoon blended into a bright sunrise. It was one of those weekend’s just

What We’re Loving: Gelato

by Amy Feiereisel
What We’re Loving: Gelato

You scream, I scream, we all scream for… gelato? Oh, yes. Yes, yes, YES. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m all over good old American ice cream but when I tried my first spoon of creamy, velvety, ludicrously flavorful gelato, I knew ice cream was going to have to budge over and share its space

Blueberry Pie with Cornmeal Crust

by Molly Shuster

It wouldn’t be summer without blueberries and Molly takes our favorite summer fruit to another level in this simple pie with a cornmeal crust – a cornmeal crust that’s been woven into a pretty lattice and topped with sugar. Happy Independence Day, and happy summer! -Maggie Blueberries hold a very special place in my heart,

What We’re Grilling: Recipes for the 4th of July

Happy (early) Fourth of July everyone! I don’t have the statistics to back me up on this, but I suspect that our Nation’s Birthday is the day that the largest number of barbeque grills are used in the United States (followed by Labor Day and Memorial Day). If you aren’t hosting a BBQ, you’ll probably
