Baking Chez Moi and Vous with Dorie Greenspan

It’s really quite impossible not to adore Dorie Greenspan. With several incredible cookbooks under her belt–Baking: From My Home to Yours, Around My French Table, and Baking With Julia (yes, the Julia Child)–a lovely blog, and a very popular baking club, Tuesdays With Dorie, as well as the sweetest smile and an ever-so-friendly disposition, she is

Chestnut Pear Tatin

Ever since Paris, chestnuts have been that dreamy food that instantly evokes wintertime. Like hot dogs or pretzels are to New York City, chestnuts are to Paris, dotting every corner when you begin to see your breath. Sean shared this celebratory recipe to get us in the holiday spirit. Go roast some chestnuts, okay? xo-Maggie

What We’re Loving: Homemade Hostess Gifts

  The holiday season has arrived, and chances are that you will be a guest in someone else’s home for at least one, if not many, holiday soirees. No guest likes to arrive empty handed, but it can be difficult to think of a unique and meaningful gift for your hostess (holiday madness!). Maggie’s upcoming

Order Your Island Creek Oysters Now, Just in Time for the Holidays

‘Tis the season for shucking, especially when it involves these briny, gorgeous, bi-valve-vy goodness! I am a huge oyster fanatic and owe that love to Island Creek Oysters, the farm with some of the best oysters in all the land. If you follow Eat Boutique, you know they’ve participated in my markets since this very beginning — they

The World According to the Drink-Syrup Masters of Quince & Apple

Meet Matt and Clare, the delightful founders and faces behind Quince & Apple, one of our favorite makers for drink syrups and jams. The dynamic duo handcrafts small-batch preserves and drink syrups out of their kitchen in Madison, Wisconsin, and their passion and attention to detail shines in each inventive flavor (Honey Lemon syrup, anyone?) they create.

Maggie’s Kitchen Memo: Pop-Up Shop, Donuts, Coffee and Food Gifts

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

Our Top Spots for Afternoon Tea + How to Host Your Own Tea Party

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

Eggnog Cocktails & Insight into Drink Syrups with Morris Kitchen

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

Friendsgiving: Gorgeous Side Dishes for Your Thanksgiving Potluck

Thanksgiving is always delicious, but it can be mighty stressful getting there, especially on the very day. “Too many cooks in the kitchen” can become reality fast, but it often seems like the only option, especially since so many Thanksgivings are big family gatherings or potluck parties. To save ourselves and the hostess a headache,

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

What We’re Loving: Beaujolais Nouveau Dinner Party

With Beaujolais Nouveau Day fast approaching (the third Thursday in November every year), we’re putting on our menu-planning hats and coming up with ways to celebrate the new wine. Bottled just 6 to 8 weeks after harvest, Beaujolais has very little tannin and typically is quite fruity and light. In fact, some find the purple-pink wine

Roasted Pumpkin Enchiladas

Roasted Pumpkin Enchiladas

I haven’t yet guzzled my requisite pumpkin spice latte of the season. If you’ve guzzled at least one, more power to you. If you’ve made a homemade pumpkin spice latte, well, bless you. I’m way behind and I should probably turn in my Fall-lover badge right about now. This recipe, however, is my way of

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

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

Grilled Peach, Corn and Prosecco Mussels

Crossover dishes have my heart this week and this one is just so special. Mussels cuddle up to late summer produce in a sparkling broth that says, “sure, it’s almost soup season but let’s keep the prosecco thing going a little while longer.” Grill up plenty of bread to sop up the pleasing stock –
