What We’re Loving: Homemade Hostess Gifts

  The holiday season has arrived, and chances are that you will be a guest in someone else’s home for at least one, if not many, holiday soirees. No guest likes to arrive empty handed, but it can be difficult to think of a unique and meaningful gift for your hostess (holiday madness!). Maggie’s upcoming

What We’re Loving: Grilled Cheese

Did you know that the nation just celebrated a major holiday? Did you participate? Perhaps with some cheddar, or gruyere, for the more exotic? For those who have absolutely no idea what I’m talking about, it was National Grilled Cheese Day yesterday! It may seem a little silly that such a simple thing has its

What We’re Loving: Avocado

What We’re Loving: Avocado

I usually try to eat as locally and seasonally as possible, but there are some foods for which I’ll make an exception. Until I move back to California and get an avocado tree in my yard, avocado will have to be one of those foods. We always have some on hand these days to feed

Happy (early) Fourth of July everyone! I don’t have the statistics to back me up on this, but I suspect that our Nation’s Birthday is the day that the largest number of barbeque grills are used in the United States (followed by Labor Day and Memorial Day). If you aren’t hosting a BBQ, you’ll probably

What We’re Loving: Smoothies

My best friend recently got a Vitamix in the mail from her mother-in-law, and I immediately began to “ooh” and “ahh,” as I’d coveted this particular appliance for many, many years. My husband had told me to just buy one already (after he’d caught me looking at different models on the internet one time too

What We’re Loving: Cream

When I was young, my great-grandparents had a small ranch. I was lucky enough to live just down the gravel lane from them, and spent most of my childhood running in the pasture and chasing after cows. My great-grandmother had one milking cow, tan in color and easily distinguished from the others, and she milked

What We’re Loving: Everything Coconut

My daughter was born almost nine months ago, and has now been eating solid foods for just under three months. As she and I embark on this new culinary journey together, I’ve been reading a lot (books, articles, blogs – you name it) on the many ways I can help her become an adventurous eater.

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

Seven Citrus-licious Confections

I’m ready for winter to be over. After two polar vortexes and snowstorm after snowstorm after snowstorm, I can’t wait to retire my down coat and my snow boots for the year. I also have to confess that I’m a little tired of eating root vegetables. Much as I like eating seasonally and locally, I’m

What We’re Loving: Savory Brunch Recipes

I used to love hosting dinner parties. Having friends over for dinner on a weekend night gave us the chance to drink wine, eat food, and to catch up on each other’s lives. I would spend hours in the kitchen trying new, elaborate recipes that just weren’t possible during the work week. But now, my

What We’re Loving: Popcorn

When I was a kid, I used to love the nights when my dad would get out the popcorn maker. He would pop the kernels while my mom melted butter on the stove. The finished product went into a big green plastic bowl, which I kept next to me on the floor while we watched

Holiday Market Cookbook Shop and Cookbook Authors

As if small-batch artisan makers, Boston’s favorite food truck, full size pours of booze, and workshops weren’t enough, there’s yet another lovely component to this year’s Holiday Market. I think it’s safe to say that folks who eat boutique also appreciate a good cookbook – in fact, we usually swoon over them! What could be

Winter Wine Tasting

Winter Wine Tasting

L’Espalier. Oleana. Ribelle. Sarma. Recognize any of these names? Frank McClelland’s L’Espalier has been the go-to for fine dining in the Boston area for more than 20 years, and Ana Sortun has been creating outrageously inventive Middle Eastern dishes for just over a decade at Oleana. New on the scene, and already earning rave reviews, are

We are utterly charmed by Beehive Kitchenware’s story and aesthetic appeal, so imagine our excitement at having them attend the Holiday Market this December! Here, a sneak peek at their gorgeous kitchenware – perhaps this season is the time to collect a few new family heirlooms. -Amy Anyone who reads a food blog or watches

Blackberry Farm

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
