Travel Bite: Berkshires’ Mezze Bistro + Farm Egg on Peas, Favas, and Scapes

In the last few days, I’ve shared some of my favorite makers and a killer coffeehouse in western Massachusetts’ the Berkshires. Now I’d like to tell you about a lovely spot for a one-of-a-kind dinner, as well as a recipe for you to try at home. It’s no secret that I love to share food. You see,

You’ve already read about a few of my favorite stops in the Berkshires, but I’m back to share a coffee shop after my own heart, as well as an amazing recipe for affogato, an Italian dessert that “drowns” ice cream in espresso. My love letter to coffee usually begins the same way: “I never felt

Travel Bite: A Food-Lover’s Tour of The Berkshires

You never know what you might find if you just keep driving. This was one of my mother’s favorite lessons, which always resulted in long hours spent exploring back roads in our beastly tan minivan. Every time she felt a bit restless, we set out on a great adventure in search of the perfect steak,

A Trio of Tapas

In our continuing recap from Sean’s trip to Andalucía, we begged him for tapas recipes. These are three simple tapas dishes you can create right now, with face turned toward a bit of sun and blushing from a glass or two of something strong. -Maggie Traditionally, tapas would have been no more than a slice of

When in Spain, Eat…

When in Spain, Eat…

Folks, do you this little favor right now. Stop what you’re doing and spend five minutes reading about Sean’s visit to Andalucía. In five minutes, you’ll be transported to a sort of calm place somewhere only a very good book will take you. In five minutes, you’ll retreat into Sean’s tiny dispatch from the land of

Apple Cider Steamed Mussels

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

Seven Ways to Eat England

Seven Ways to Eat England

The women in my family share many qualities; one of the least embarrassing to admit is a love for all things British. Our ladies-only get-togethers include our version of “high tea,” complete with scones, finger sandwiches and pastries. We pass around both fiction and non-fiction works by British authors, and can’t get enough of the

Irish Farmer’s Cake

I still haven’t visited Ireland. What’s wrong with me?! My husband became a full-fledged Irish citizen in 2013 and, drats, life has just gotten in our way. Thank goodness for Elizabeth McNally of Wee Kitchen. For St. Patrick’s Day, we’re featuring a real Irish recipe, courtesy of our favorite Irish traveler. Elizabeth, the lucky lady,

Rachel volunteered at one of our very first Eat Boutique Holiday Markets, and has returned to every single event since. That’s five big markets, people, so she’s worked herself into my life such that my Mom now asks, “How’s Rachel?” every single month. Eat Boutique adores you, Rachel, and I’m even more delighted to congratulate

Fig Rosemary Jam

One week in California is never enough. Every few years, I escape to west coast wine country during the harvest to do what comes naturally. This visit included some very important repeat activities like… drinking wine, eating figs, reading cookbooks, cooking and wrapping food gifts, daily picnics in the vines, and more wine. Drinking wine

As I’ve built this blog and business over the past few years, I am also finding ways to enjoy this entire process, especially the perks of all these food travel adventures. I was introduced to Jodi Ettenberg, author of The Food Traveler’s Handbook: How to Find Cheap, Safe and Delicious Food Anywhere in the World, via

Thank you for visiting with me and the Eat Boutique crew at the Anthropologie Market last week. Oh my goodness, we were shocked to see so many food lovers line up at the door before the market opened and even more thrilled when several of you said, “Hello, I read and shop Eat Boutique!” It

Food Lover’s Guide to Vermont

For me, Vermont is another one of those states that has a mystical haze surrounding it – for heaven’s sake, they have kingdoms there! Fortunately, Tara’s guide to her favorite places to eat and visit help solve a piece of the puzzle.  So here’s the important question – who’s driving?  -Amy Vermont and I are

The New Jersey Escape

New Jersey isn’t quite up there with Rome, Tokyo, or Paris when it comes to hot travel destinations, and many initial reactions to the state include mutterings about a certain television show and a generous dose of skepticism. Before I was enlightened, I’m sorry to say, I wrinkled my nose with the rest of them.

Plum Cordial of Ireland

I’ve been lucky enough to travel to London, Paris, Berlin, Milan, Venice, Madrid… all over Europe. The one place that’s been on my travel wish list since I was a wee lass is the tiny land of Ireland. And even though I married a man with strong Irish roots, a trip to his ‘homeland’ has
