In Maggie’s Kitchen:

Hello friends, I just returned from a weekend away and, naturally, I have a few things to share because… it’s Monday! Spice It Up: I fell in love, again, with Maine and most certainly in love, again, with fra diavolo sauce. I don’t know why it’s evaded my cooking repertoire this long but, oh yes,

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

I’m in gift-giving mode at every moment of the year — not just during the winter holidays — and these DIY oyster shell salt cellars are the perfect hostess gift (we stock gorgeous Jacobsen Salt Co. shells in the Shop – great minds think alike!). Just tuck a pair into a box, add sea salt

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 –

Earl Grey & Gin Cured Salmon Appetizer Toasts Recipe

I first found smoked fish when living in Manhattan; every Jewish-style deli worth its weight offered a great option. Smoked mussels were popular at my Maine wedding. And now, I generally only eat smoked salmon during layovers at London’s Heathrow Airport when I treat myself to a little fish and a lot of wine during

Grilled Oysters with Herb Butter

It’s summer and like I said in this post for Beef, Stout & Oyster Pie last week, I am oyster-crazy right now. Once grilled, small oysters take on an sweeter, concentrated note. And topped with herb butter, well, it’s basically game over. Thanks to Matthew’s recipe, you know where I’ll be next weekend: huddled by

Beef, Stout and Oyster Pie

Now that it’s finally summer, we’re eating raw oysters like mad. With a beer or a glass of cold wine, they’re supreme. We asked Sean to share a unique way to use that ocean-like flavor, and he has spared no expense in sharing an old English recipe. I want to make a dozen of these

Spring dinner parties are best for light dinners that remind you that summer is oh so close. In this salad, fresh fish with a bit of oil in it pairs just beautifully with tart rhubarb. Try it with mackerel or trout or even anchovies. Your next weekend brunch party will be a hit, promise. -Maggie

My daughter was born almost nine months ago, and has now been eating solid foods for just under three months. As she and I embark on this new culinary journey together, I’ve been reading a lot (books, articles, blogs – you name it) on the many ways I can help her become an adventurous eater.

Apple Cider Steamed Mussels

When I think of the northeast, I think of apples. Of nippy fall days, and a plethora of laden apple trees. Naturally, apple cider follows, and naturally, some scrumptious eats can be made with such riches. But seafood? The answer is yes. Sean shows us why! – Amy Stare at a mussel shell for long

Salt Water Farm Cafe

Ever since I moved up to the (literally) greener pastures of the northeast (from Texas), I have longed to visit Maine. Everything I hear sounds positively magical: rocky beaches, farmer’s markets, and the ever-present salty breeze. Shelby’s adventures have transformed my little wish into a raging desire, and now I know where I’ll be eating

Don’t even get me started on my love for Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Chloe and Dennis lured me there four years ago, promising it would change my life. They were right – it’s the only place I stay when I visit New York City. Chloe shares the details on this gem of a Brooklyn neighborhood that’s just

Josephine makes me miss the world, miss travel, miss Paris. I’ve never been to Thailand, but I can imagine that after a tour and cooking session with Josphine, I would miss it too. -Maggie A little over a year ago, my husband, Luke and I eloped in Thailand. Our decision to privately tie the knot

We’re quickly approaching a favorite time of year:   farmers market season.  But more and more, eating local means grabbing vegetables and herbs sprouting just outside our own kitchen windows.   Jill shares with us her adventure raising prawns, which makes me wonder, what are other people growing in their backyards and is it enough

Mango Crab Salad

First  dates over dinner are usually the worst — worrying if you’re going to spill something, checking for lettuce stuck between your teeth, making awkward motions for your wallet when the bill arrives.   Lucky for Denise, she walked away from hers with a recipe that’s lasted a lifetime.   Her take on the fresh
