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,

We may be a Boston-based operation, but that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate (read: adore) the West Coast. Mary just gave us yet another reason to dream of a warmer, more citrus-y state (of mind)… -Amy I’m a New England girl. Born and raised, and committed to living here in sort of a heels-dug-in way

Hmmm… that’s not a recipe, now is it? Well, not a food recipe. But eating boutique certainly lends itself to living boutique, and we are all simple, natural, DIY projects to make your life a little sunnier. We are also thrilled to bits to introduce Melissa Massello, a DIY guru (from my own hometown of

Coconut Chai Sorbet

Chai Sorbet by the Sorbabes

Last summer I wrote a piece about Gourmet Sorbet by the Sorbabes after I met them in New York. After seeing the passion Nicole and Deborah had for this dairy-free but flavor-full dessert – and trying all the flavors, of course – I was hooked. This year, I’ve been living in France, and I have

Can you tell we have a thing here at Eat Boutique for citrus? It just makes us swoon. Take for example the recent rash of grapefruit recipes, which include  Grapefruit Blood Orange Granita and Grapefruit Sloe Gin Fizz; and then there’s just general citrus love with Rachel’s Seven Citrus-licious Confections. Today, Denise makes citrus hot….literally.

Seven Citrus-licious Confections

I’m ready for winter to be over. After two polar vortexes and snowstorm after snowstorm after snowstorm, I can’t wait to retire my down coat and my snow boots for the year. I also have to confess that I’m a little tired of eating root vegetables. Much as I like eating seasonally and locally, I’m

Six Ways to Eat Pomegranates All Day Long

When I think of the Valentine’s Days of my youth, I think paper hearts, doilies, chocolates, and those mandatory cards one had to send to one’s classmates as a child. I think sweet milk chocolate and strawberries, and bins of stuffed teddy bears. Nowadays, very different images come to mind. Slinky dresses, beautiful bouquets of posies,

Food gifts do not stop after the holidays. This vodka is something you could give me anytime of year: to celebrate the first snow fall, to celebrate when the Polar Vortex finally disappears for good, or to just celebrate our (virtual) friendship – that’s a good reason! -Maggie I’ve never been a fan of syrupy-sweet-flavored

You know what we love? When recipes are so simple they’re impossible to mess up, yet they’re beautiful and delicious enough to serve at a dinner party. That’s how we feel about this grapefruit-blood orange granita. This recipe takes about 10 minutes to make and is basically a grown up version of the shaved ice

Hey, it’s 5 o’clock wherever you are. Have a drink with us. Better yet, make this gorgeous original citrus drink for the both of us, two please! -Maggie One of my closest friends, Shari, used to tend bar at a local music venue, and I would go there one or two nights a week to

Blackberry, Blueberry & Fig Tartlets

My favorite colours (British spelling!) have always been rich hues of violet, so I am spellbound by the way the fruit stains these sweet little winter treats. They remind me of something that would be served at the traditional French Goûter (a snack and tea-time around four o’clock). As in, I wish I was in

Handmade Gifts: Blood Orange Caramels

I’ve got to tell you, my first encounter with blood orange juice was during college, with it mixed in a pitcher of vodka. Heck, if a juice could make an $8.00 bottle of vodka taste good, then I’m guessing the blood orange juice tastes fantastic in these Blood Orange Caramels with Toasted Almonds and Sea

Little Tipples: Brandied Cherries

This is the third installment of Katt Frank and Sean St. John’s Little Tipples series. Today we’re moving away from straight liquor to an innocent little fruit treat – laced with brandy, naturally. Visit the first two, Sloe Gin and Blackberry Bourbon, for more! -Amy Brandied cherries are something to waken the taste buds. The

Spiced Kumquat Compote

Spiced Kumquat Compote

I am a big fan of stretching traditional menus. Regular Roasted Turkey is just great, but Smoked Turkey with a sage brine is better. Apple pie can’t be beat, except when you top it with a homemade Honey Cinnamon Ice Cream, a new twist I’m introducing this year. Casey is dressing up her tart Thanksgiving

What We’re Loving: Pies

by Kate H. Knapp
What We’re Loving: Pies

Let me start by saying this: I love to laugh and I’m a huge fan of comedy—I even married an improv comedian—but I never quite understood the humor behind throwing a perfectly good pie in someone’s face. It seemed like such a tragic waste of flaky, creamy, sweet pie goodness. As you can see, I
