Exciting Ways to Use Jam Beyond the Jar With Blue Chair Fruit

We’ve been long-time fans of crafting cocktails out of everyday jams, but Rachel Saunders, creative mastermind behind Blue Chair Fruit, exceeds even our wildest imaginations of how transformative a spoonful of preserved fruit can really be in her newest cookbook, Blue Chair Cooks with Jam & Marmalade. The book features 150 recipes, ranging from paella to pastries, divided

Tea Time With “Steeped: Recipes Infused With Tea” Cookbook Author Annelies Zijderveld

Tea is such a lovely creation. So much comfort and goodness in one cup. It warms you on a cold day, puts a bit of pep in your step when you’re feeling sluggish, and makes you feel better when your under-the-weather. It was about time someone took all of this wonderfulness beyond the mug and

What We Love: Cooking With Beer

What We Love: Beer-Inspired Dishes for St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations

When I was growing up, St. Patrick’s Day typically meant two things: corned beef and pinches. The latter involved the tradition (at least where I grew up) of getting pinched if you weren’t wearing green on the holiday. My brother took full advantage of this and it became a game of who could outsmart the

Apotheker’s Kitchen: Bee-Sweetened Hot Cocoa & The Secret Life of Chocolatiers

Just one taste of their honey-sweetened confections, and you know instantly that Russ and Shari Apotheker of Apotheker’s Kitchen were destined to create all-natural and delicious chocolates (and marshmallows, for that matter). Their handcrafted treats are made with only the very best ingredients, like their chocolate, which is organically and biodynamically grown and sourced from a small,

What We’re Loving: Spicy Dishes for Valentine’s Day

Oh, Valentine’s Day, how I have loathed and loved you. I hate being told what to do (especially when it comes to showing affection for those I care about), but I love chocolate, champagne, and all the wonderful food gifts the holiday produces. This year, however, I’m skipping the sweet treats and celebrating with the “hot stuff,”

Dave’s Coffee Talks (Coffee) Shop, Tiramisu, & Boozy Coffee Milk

Coffee. Incredible how one simple word can cause such happiness. And one small Rhode Island company is certainly making people smile with their one-of-a-kind creations. We’ve been long-time fans of Dave’s Coffee–in fact, their coffee syrup is always a big hit at our pop-up events and we’ve even featured their shop before. We caught up with Dave Lanning, CEO of Dave’s Coffee, to

Homemade Grenadine Syrup

Homemade Pomegranate Grenadine Syrup

My home cocktail bar is filled with my favorite small batch gin, vodka, tequila, rum, whiskey, bourbon and rye — say that fives times fast! I keep several compliments like vermouth and various fruit-flavored liquors. And, in addition to homemade simple syrup (1 part water to 1 part sugar) and various bitters, there’s always, always

Happy New Year and Cranberry Vanilla Syrup Cocktails

Well, folks, it’s been a year. It’s been the sort of year that teaches you loads about yourself — what you love to do, what you don’t love so much, and where your sweet spot really is. The holiday pop-up was a revelation — it was so much fun for me! I loved hearing your

Today. Today is the day. Today Eat Boutique’s Holiday Pop-Up Shop opens its doors, and stays that way until just before Christmas! We are so elated and giddy and excited about this, because we get to be open for most of December,  instead of just one (crazy-lovely) day. And that means making our adorable space

Meet Matt and Clare, the delightful founders and faces behind Quince & Apple, one of our favorite makers for drink syrups and jams.

Hello and the happiest of Mondays to you, It’s finally December, the moment many of us have been awaiting all year long, and the perfect excuse to sing aloud and bake non-stop — or maybe that’s just me. (Oh, please tell me that’s not just me!) Here are a few other things I wanted to

Top Spots for Afternoon Tea Time & Tea Party in a Gift Box

The Mad Hatter may have been delightfully delirious, but he was also spot-on about the glory of a tea party. Afternoon tea requires you to stop everything midday to sip on hot aromatic drinks and snack on adorable miniature foods in a luxurious atmosphere. Sounds like a heavenly daydream that we should all try to make into a reality whenever we can. With

Boring seltzer doesn’t stand a chance. Classic cocktails have met their match. All thanks to the innovative minds behind Morris Kitchen, and their inventive and well-crafted syrups. As one of our most popular makers in the Eat Boutique Shop, we wanted to know more about what makes these Brooklyn-based drink masters tick. Kari Morris was kind enough to answer a

Favorite Cocktails and the Holiday Drinks Collection

Our Holiday Drinks Collection inevitably sell out each year – can you possibly imagine why?! I suspect it’s because we all have excellent taste, and know that an excellent cocktail is the secret to a great party. Lucky for us, our latest and greatest Holiday Drinks Collection just launched in time to kick off the season’s

Cherry Bourbon Cocktail

My favorite Old Fashioned gets a twist, thanks to new contributor Jenni Horwath. If you have a bit of a sweet tooth, go ahead and add a tablespoon of maple syrup. Either way, it’s a lovely way to transition into brown drinks just in time for cool-weather holidays. Happy Halloween! -Maggie To brown liquor or
