La Chambre Aux Confitures: The Parisian Jam Shop You Must Visit

When I think of Paris, everything sweet comes to mind. And this new boutique totally dedicated to sweet preserves is now at the top of my list for my next trip. Thanks to Lindsey for encouraging us to get to know La Chambre Aux Confitures, and Amy for all the tasting over there. ~Maggie When

What We Love: Homemade Gifts for Mother’s Day

What We Love: Homemade Gifts for Mother’s Day

It’s not easy to buy a gift for my mother. Growing up, she acted plenty excited and surprised when she unwrapped my attempts, but I rarely saw her using the necklace/key-chain/pretty box that I’d picked for her. However, she was always thrilled to pieces when my brother and I made breakfast in bed for her.

For Mother’s Day: Rhubarb Rose Cake

I’m going to be overseas this Mother’s Day. I won’t leave, however, without getting my Mother a bottle of bubbly and placing this cake in the fridge, promise, Mom. Thanks, Molly, for making me look good, in advance. ~Maggie Mother’s Day is just a few days away and I always struggle with what to get.

Farmhouse Truffles Gift Set in the Eat Boutique Shop

Sometimes I crave chocolate… really good chocolate. Lately, I’ve been turning to Farmhouse Truffles for my fix. The line of treats are named for the Vermont farmhouse in which Erlé and Eliza LaBounty began making truffles. Today, Farmhouse Truffles makes chocolate-y sweets with no shortcuts and no additives – just pure and intense chocolate. The single

Beet Old Fashioned Cocktail

Beet Old Fashioned Cocktail

I’m not drinking too much these days. A bit of a teetotaler, I may sip a hefty splash of red wine here or a flute of champagne there (or, maybe two flutes) but liquor-filled drinks have been lower on my list. Cocktails are so very good — right? — but I’m just feeling like I

Gift Wrap: How to Wrap Muffins and Cupcakes

Gifting How-To: Wrapping Muffins and Cupcakes

Sometimes, I gift some kind of homemade food gift plus a kitchen item. For example, I might gift a new pasta bowl and vintage spoons with a box of wholesome pasta and a jar of homemade tomato sauce. It’s a nice gift to a new home. Actually, it’s a very generous gift to a new

Multigrain Breakfast Porridge with Bruleed Bananas and Coconut Flakes

On the weekends, I make a porridge so similar to this one. With bruleed bananas and coconut flakes and all those good-for-you grains, this version by Sheila is darling and scrumptious. It will make a weekend get-together extra nutritious… and sweet. ~Maggie This time last year, I was working at a lovely, charming cafe in

Adding Whole Grains to Your Morning with Maker and Cookbook Author Megan Gordon

As many of you know, we’ve been long-time fans of Marge Granola and have worked with her for more than three years. So we were pretty tickled when its founder, Megan Gordon, wrote an entire cookbook, Whole Grain Morning: New Breakfast Recipe to Span the Seasons, last year devoted to eating a happy and healthy breakfast. To

5 Little Luxuries for Your Spring Kitchen

Hello, ladies and gents. I am feeling like the thick of spring is just waiting for all of us around the next bend. In another few weekends, we’ll hear way more birds chirping, we’ll see the beginning of little blossoms popping up, and we’ll feel the urgency to dig our hands in the dirt or

Tea-Smoked Duck Breast and Pickled Rhubarb

Tea-Smoked Duck Breast and Pickled Rhubarb

Food gifts run the spectrum from sweet and sugary to savory and nutritious. Sean’s Tea-Smoked Duck Breast is savory and so thoughtful, nourishing in a way that candied gifts just can’t match. Don’t forget the Pickled Rhubarb — it’s just about rhubarb season in some parts and a pickle turns the sweetness into something very

Gift Wrap: How to Wrap Bread

Gifting How-To: Wrapping Bread

A few weeks back, a friend popped by and noticed a fresh loaf of banana bread. When I told her I was waiting for it to cool before I wrapped it, she said, “With tin foil, right?” Gosh, no. Tin foil is adequate but if I’m giving a gift a la minute, I always try

What We’re Loving: Herbed Homemade Candy

by Rachel Wilson
What We’re Loving: Herbed Homemade Candy

I keep a peppermint dark chocolate bar in my desk drawer at all times, and I’ll snack on a square in moments of stress, or when I have a spare moment in my day, or just because it’s Tuesday. Mint is an herb that is often associated with dessert, but pastry chefs and home cooks

Candied Clementines

Candied Clementines

Winter is a living thing in New England, especially this year. When it weeps, freezing rain or snow (usually snow) tumbles into every last corner of these hills. When the season takes a sigh, almost as exhausted with itself as we are, windows and walls rattle from the gusty wind. But when she beams, as

What are you doing for Valentine’s weekend? Well, of course, it’s a weekend. When the holiday falls on a Saturday, the whole weekend becomes a celebration of love or hot and spicy food or small-batch chocolate or binge-watching Downton Abbey or every single Beyonce video with some ice cream. You know, you choose. Valentine’s Day
