Head Recipe Tester & Shop Editor at Eat Boutique
Kate H. Knapp has been cooking since she was stove-high and whisk-strong. She comes from a long line of cooks and bakers, from whom she learned the sweet power of sugar, the thrill of egg whites, the magic of leftovers, and the importance of being fearless in the kitchen. Kate works as the Urbanist Boston City Guide Editor and has recently earned a Masters in Gastronomy. She spends her free time testing recipes, practicing food photography, and reading cookbooks. Her recipe for life is a work in progress—needs a dash more of this and a pinch of that—but she couldn't be happier with her ingredients.

What We’re Loving: Holiday Cookie for Gifting

The holidays really are the most wonderful time of year, especially when they are filled with sweet, homemade cookies.

Meet Matt and Clare, the delightful founders and faces behind Quince & Apple, one of our favorite makers for drink syrups and jams.

What We’re Loving: Beaujolais Nouveau Dinner Party

With Beaujolais Nouveau Day fast approaching (the third Thursday in November every year), we’re putting on our menu-planning hats and coming up with ways to celebrate the new wine.

What We’re Loving: Spirited Cocktails for Halloween

Come, sit for a spell (sorry just a little Halloween humor). Living just a few miles from Salem, Massachusetts, I appreciate this spooky, kooky, creepy, crawly holiday in a way that goes beyond the scares, tricks, and treats. Halloween, to me, is truly a magical time (and it’s not just because of the witches). When else can

What We’re Loving: Homemade Breakfast Bars

For me, breakfast-on-the-go once meant nothing more than coffee in a travel mug. Thankfully, I have since learned the importance of the first meal of the day. And though I still rely on my trusty travel cup o’ joe to start my morning off right, I now accompany it with something a bit more substantial. The

What We’re Loving: Homemade Pasta Dishes

“Pantry pasta,” or more precisely whatever leftover or canned-good-was-about-to-expire my mother needed to use tossed with spaghetti, was a specialty at our house when I was growing up. My mother never wanted to waste anything, and so we spent many nights dining on colorful pasta dishes made with an assortment of odd ingredients. Watching as those noodles became
