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.

Seven Buzz-Worthy Ways to Enjoy Espresso

by Kate H. Knapp
Espresso

My love for coffee began when my grandmother and I would “have coffee,” meaning she would add just a teeny splash to my milk and serve it to me in a mug way too big for my face. In those moments of sipping my coffee, I felt like I had been granted access to a

Five Reasons to Fall for Campari

Oh, Campari, how I have loathed and loved you. And I am not alone. Many find the first few sips of this scarlet-hued liqueur to be a bit abrasive. It is only after persevering through a bit of face puckering that one discovers how delightful and strangely addictive the bitter-orange-flavored elixir can be. My love

Five Simple, Stunning Crostinis

by Kate H. Knapp

I come from a long line of hosts and hostesses—my parents write menus like most people write daily to-do lists—so the urge to throw a dinner party is in my blood. I can’t help it; I love preparing a meal for the people I hold most dear in this world. I find entrees exciting and

And the Oscar for Best Snack Goes to …

oscarsnacks

Movies entertain, thrill, terrify, seduce, and inspire us, but what would they really be without the humble popcorn, candy, or treat that accompanies them? These overlooked bites add so much to the experience (who didn’t accidentally toss popcorn into the air during Jurassic Park? You know the scene I’m talking about). With the Oscars just

Six Reasons Why We Love Maple

bacon-pancakes

I’ll let you on a little secret, I was a pancake purist in my youth—I thought hotcakes were too precious to be soaked in syrup, so I instead opted for just a bit of butter and a sprinkling of sugar. I would turn my nose up in dramatic disgust as my family drowned their fluffy flapjacks

Food Gift Love: Spiced Pear Vodka

Food gifts do not stop after the holidays. This vodka is something you could give me anytime of year: to celebrate the first snow fall, to celebrate when the Polar Vortex finally disappears for good, or to just celebrate our (virtual) friendship – that’s a good reason! -Maggie I’ve never been a fan of syrupy-sweet-flavored

What We’re Loving: Fondue

by Kate H. Knapp

When I was a kid and life became a little too serious—which can happen when there’s a divorce, a menagerie of rescued pets, and two strong-minded siblings—my mother would pull out the fondue pot in hopes of lightening the mood. She knew the somewhat silly and playful meal would make it impossible for us hold

Everything But the Toast Gift Box

Sometimes I meet you in person and you say “Oh my goodness, I had no idea you offered that food in the Shop!?” You know what that means to me? I’m not doing a great job of sharing all the new goodies we’ve discovered with our die-hard blog readers. Shame, shame on me! To solve that,

Hello, everyone! I’m back from Salt Lake City, Utah — oh my goodness, it’s gorgeous there! — and I’m thrilled to get to work on my very first cookbook.  But all those recipes need testing. Can you help by providing some honest feedback? Kate, who also happens to hail from the great state of Utah,

What We’re Loving: Tea Time

by Kate H. Knapp
Black Honey Tea Cake

I was seven years old when my father gave me my first real (as in it wasn’t made of plastic, was refreshingly free of stickers, and was incredibly fragile) tea set. My dapper dad had lived in England when he was a child, and some of his fondest memories surrounded afternoon tea time (he somehow

Giveaway: Tell Us Your Favorite Cookie to Enter to Win!

*** This giveaway is closed and a winner has been chosen. *** Though I applaud all of you who have decided to skip the sugar, banish the booze, and cancel any and all dates with carbohydrates to counteract those holiday indulgences, I think it’s time to reward yourself for all that restraint.

What We’re Loving: Traditional Holiday Drinks

Whether it’s a warm glass of hot buttered rum after a day in the snow or a frosty mug of rich eggnog on Christmas morning, there’s nothing quite like a traditional holiday cocktail to celebrate the season. Thankfully, I grew up with a mother who is an expert eggnog maker and whips up a batch

Let’s all take a deep breath together. Yes, Christmas is less than a week away. Yes, it does feel like it was just Halloween (I still have leftover candy!). But guess what?
