Eight Sweet Quinoa Recipes

Eight Sweet Quinoa Recipes

I came late to the Quinoa party. As an American and Taiwanese hybrid, the starches of my childhood were potatoes and rice, with the occasional appearance of oats if we were really getting crazy. And don’t get me started on Texas; good for beans and tortillas, not so much for variety when it comes to

Cooking with Nut Butters

Cooking with Nut Butters

Don’t get me wrong – I love nut butters, just as they are. I’m the first one to crack open a jar and commence the double dipping, because I have a lot to make up for. You see, I didn’t even TRY peanut butter until I was eighteen. Eighteen! I spent an entire childhood without

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

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,

Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

vday

Until I went away to college, I received at least one Valentine’s Day card and a few presents each year…but never from a boy. Who was this mystery gifter? My mother. Every year, without fail, I would come home from school to balloons, chocolates, and strawberries cut in the shape of hearts (which were my

For the Candy Lover

For the Candy Lover

I had this – shall we say unusual? – hobby as a child. Every Halloween I would run myself ragged traversing the neighborhood in search of the best candy, filling my pillowcase (and then my costume, and them my shoes) with the stuff. My younger brother and I would then return home, weary and triumphant,

Everything But the Cheese Gift Box

Everything But the Cheese Gift Box

We took a major step in 2013 by introducing our first ever (and favorite!) charcuterie-style product. And now, we package it in a new gift box collection that only needs cheese from your local fromagerie (or grocery store). Amy tells you more, merci! -Maggie After hours of deliberation (and tasting, one must always taste), you

What We’re Loving: Potatoes

What We’re Loving: Potatoes

Oh, the humble potato. How lumpy and starchy and heavy you are. But how versatile, how ever-changing and adaptable! Roasted, mashed, fried, boiled, and baked; I never tire of your many faces. For the seasonal eater, the winter can feel a wee bit heavy on the root veggies, cabbage, and potatoes. Blessedly, potatoes can be

What We’re Loving: 2013

Whew, what a year. 2013 was full of change for Eat Boutique, culminating in our largest Boston 2013 Holiday Market in December. It was a year stuffed with new connections, new opportunities, and of course, some truly great eats! Now that 2014 has rolled in, we commemorate our love of Eating Boutique by looking back

What We’re Loving: Sugar Cookies

What We’re Loving: Sugar Cookies

To say my culinary horizons were limited as a child would be an understatement. I was as plain-jane as they come; no sauces, no spice, no heat, and absolutely no chocolate (I’m equally horrified as you are, I promise). My favorite flavor was usually the simplest available – think vanilla ice cream, spaghetti with butter,

Pretzel Gift Box

There was a magical shop in the mall near my house. A place where warm, yeasty dough sat in big fat balls along a marbled counter, destined for a metal oven that would produce a burnished brown vessel of chewy, salty, slightly sweet goodness. Pretzels are warm, and happy, and holidays. My parents were always

Bellocq Tea Atelier

Bellocq Tea Atelier

It’s a scorching day when I arrive at Bellocq Tea Atelier’s brick storefront – or at least, what I think is their storefront. Surrounded by stark warehouses and sporting a heavy metal front door, I’m unsure whether I’ll be walking into a Tea Atelier or the headquarters of some illicit cartel. Thankfully, my instincts couldn’t

What We’re Loving: YOU (and Market Photos!)

What We’re Loving: YOU!

Sigh. It was wonderful. Truly, blue-ly, wonderful, and there are so many people to thank. The small-batch, come early and stay late, food-obsessed makers, the cookbook authors and food trucks, our ridiculously fantastic and devoted volunteers (who stuck around until the very end and unscrewed close to a hundred signs), and of course, of COURSE,

Omega Olive Oil

Omega Olive Oil is quite the coy little operation; when I started looking around for the story behind the bottle, I found very little – namely, the paragraph sized About Us section on their website. But sometimes the most incredible operations are a little too busy for publicity, and that turned out to be the

What We’re Loving: Thanksgiving Leftovers

What We’re Loving: Thanksgiving Leftovers

Yesterday was T-day, and if your experience mirrors mine at all, it was a Turkey day full of sugar-fueled excitement and lots of bird wrestling. But somehow all the planning and cursing and basting is worth it when you sit down and eat with the important people in your life; smiling giddily over the brussels
