Chef Dan Barber from the Food Series “Chef’s Table” Talks Tradition, Last Suppers, and Favorite Food Gifts

Do you have a Netflix account? I hope you do but if you don’t, it’s time to cozy up to someone who does. I just love food stories that are told via recipes, cookbooks and interviews with makers, but lately food films (like the mini-series My Life in Sourdough, which I’ve devoured) have caught up

Organic Carpet Shake with Lemon, Lavender, & Eucalyptus

Organic Carpet Shake with Lemon, Lavender, & Eucalyptus

The moment spring hits, I start cleaning every nook of my home. Unworn clothes go to the local charity, old books and magazines get carted to the library or senior center, and the house gets well-cleaned, top to bottom. This Organic Carpet Shake which smells like spring is getting tossed on all my rugs this

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

What We Love: Spring Pickles

by Amy Feiereisel
What We Love: Spring Pickles

My initial reaction to spring produce is pretty simple – eat everything fresh in sight, often with just a quick drizzle of olive oil or a sprinkle of really nice salt. But after my belly is all filled up with baby greens, my mind turns to saving and preserving some of those lovely, delicate spring

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

What We Love: 10 Crackers and Crisps Perfect for Food Gifts

by Kate H. Knapp
What We Love: Crackers & Crisps

One of my favorite things to bring to a potluck or a friend’s dinner party is a well-crafted cheese platter or a homemade dip. And, in these moments, plain-old crackers simply won’t do as an accompaniment. I want something unique, delicious, and above-all made with love. It turns out I am not alone in this desire and I found a

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

My Friday Night Comfort Food: Vegan Fried Rice

by Maggie Battista
Vegan Fried Rice

Beginning in January, I started eating a whole lot more greens. There are greens in my morning smoothie (you know, mixed in with the fruit, seeds and cashew milk), greens in my lunch-time salad, and there are always greens somewhere in my dinner. I’m sorta enamored with them and relish all the good stuff they

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 Time With “Steeped: Recipes Infused With Tea” Cookbook Author Annelies Zijderveld

Tea is such a lovely creation. So much comfort and goodness in one cup. It warms you on a cold day, puts a bit of pep in your step when you’re feeling sluggish, and makes you feel better when your under-the-weather. It was about time someone took all of this wonderfulness beyond the mug and

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 Love: Spring Recipes

Believe it or not, it’s officially spring! Okay, so maybe the flowers aren’t in full bloom; perhaps they’re buried under a few feet of white powder, but we are nearing the end of Winter 2015, and that is something to definitely be celebrated. Warmth is coming, along with the first salad greens of the season,

Kennebunkport, Maine: A Sweet Spot for (Food) Lovers

Kennebunkport, Maine: A Spot for Lovers, Eaters and Anyone, Really

When people ask me about Maine, I tell them that my now husband and I took our first summer vacation there more than 10 years ago. We fell in love somewhere between the rustic shack on the sea and the smoked mussels on our plates, mussels that were beyond everything, salty, meaty and light in

What We Love: Cooking With Beer

What We Love: Beer-Inspired Dishes for St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations

When I was growing up, St. Patrick’s Day typically meant two things: corned beef and pinches. The latter involved the tradition (at least where I grew up) of getting pinched if you weren’t wearing green on the holiday. My brother took full advantage of this and it became a game of who could outsmart the
