In Maggie’s Kitchen: Green Eating, Chinese Dumplings, Our First Pop-Up of 2015, and New Care Packages for Valentine’s

Hey there, It’s back-to-business-Monday, folks, but before you lose yourself in that new work project, let’s talk foodstuff. You know, the sort of talk that reminds you that your job is great but the real you comes to life in the kitchen. Right? Right. Homemade Chicken Stock: In case you missed this new recipe, I

The Gift of Homemade Chicken Stock

The Gift of Homemade Chicken Stock

I bet you think this is going to be a story about chicken stock. Don’t be silly. Just because you see pretty images of carrots and fennel and onions and celery and actual chicken stock doesn’t mean I’m going to write about chicken stock. Instead, I’m going to tell you that it’s stock season and

What We’re Loving: Party Dips to Please a Crowd

Ok, here goes. I am not, nor have I ever been, a football fan (please don’t hate me). I am, however, a huge fan of any excuse to bring people together and eat, which is why I tend to like sporting events like the Superbowl. I mean, what’s not to like? Friends gather together over a variety of finger

Grapefruit & Kumquat Campari Syrup Cake

Grapefruit & Kumquat Campari Syrup Cake

I first drank Campari overseas, when all my French and Italian friends pressured me into my first easy sip. Easy, it was, and I’ve now come to love bitter aperitif, as well as almost anything it touches, like grapefruit and kumquats. Oh, and sign me up for all cakes with bitter and sweet citrus flavors.

Feast On This: The Beauty and Charm of Calligraphy with Jenny Milwid

The Beauty and Charm of Calligraphy with Jenny Milwid

It’s rare to receive a handwritten anything, really, these days (let’s start sending postcards, ok?), which is why we are in awe of those who put pen to paper with an artistic and elegant flourish. Jenny Milwid, a Boston-based calligrapher and artist (launching a leather goods business later this month), is just such a person,

In Maggie’s Kitchen: Jam Tarts, Valentine’s “Care” Packages, and How I Live What I Love​

Hey there, Welcome to Monday. The weekend was a quick blur but it looks like we’ve got a couple extra days off coming, in the northeast anyway. What the weather folks are calling a “potentially historic blizzard” is set to cover the northeastern United States and, honestly, I could use a little time nestled on

Jam Tarts from Mrs Wheelbarrow’s Practical Pantry

I could type a million wonderful things about Cathy Barrow. I could tell you about how sweet she was to me and so many others as an early Food52 community member; we were all just doing our thing, sharing our favorite dishes, and she was the cheerleader of every good recipe. I could tell you

What We’re Loving: Pick-Me-Up Comfort Foods

What We’re Loving: Pick-Me-Up Comfort Foods

It must be something about the holidays, or January, or the fact that we all had to leave warm, cozy kitchens for the real world, but everyone (including me!) seems to have something. Sniffles, colds, or just feeling a little under the weather… something. The sub-zero temperatures aren’t helping, I imagine. But what can help

Dave’s Coffee Talks (Coffee) Shop, Tiramisu, & Boozy Coffee Milk

Coffee. Incredible how one simple word can cause such happiness. And one small Rhode Island company is certainly making people smile with their one-of-a-kind creations. We’ve been long-time fans of Dave’s Coffee–in fact, their coffee syrup is always a big hit at our pop-up events and we’ve even featured their shop before. We caught up with Dave Lanning, CEO of Dave’s Coffee, to

Maggie’s Kitchen Memo: Meyer Lemons, Sweet Potato Bar, Coconut Love and Food Gift Links

Good morning, lovelies, This Monday memo is short and sweet. I need some sunshine and my guess is you may, too. Here’s a bright pop of yellow and some thoughts and links to wake you up … good morning! Meyer Lemons: ‘Tis the season for floral, almost heady lemons and I handled my big batch

Cranberry and Cocoa Nibs Morning Muffins

Cranberry and Cocoa Nibs Morning Muffins

January is for lighter eating, apparently. But I say, go big or go home with these fresh, bright, crunchy muffins. With a pat of butter or even a swirl of tangy yogurt and chewy honey spread in between muffin halves, they’ll make your morning right. -Maggie They say the most important meal of the day

Coq au Vin a la Partridge: Pot-Roasted with Sausage and Cider and Ready for a Downton Abbey Inspired Supper

by Sean St. John
Coq au Vin a la Partridge: Pot Roasted with Sausage & Cider

Take a fine moment to consider Sean’s brilliant take on Coq Au Vin that actually has no Vin at all. It’s a bit of fowl stewed with hard cider, two styles of sausages (including chorizo) and beans. If partridge isn’t for you, find a bird that suits you and get to pot-roasting, stat. This dish

Maggie’s Kitchen Memo: Good Food Recipes, Mustard Butter, French Fry Secrets and a Redesign

Hey there friends, Happy brand new week. To get ready for it, I’ve made a pot of quinoa, a big batch of black bean soup and a first-attempt at cashew milk. So, yes, it’s been a pretty great weekend and all the time in the kitchen gives me great focus. Here are some other things

10 Starter Cookbooks for a Well-Loved Kitchen

One whiff of cinnamon and I am transported back to my maternal grandmother’s pantry. Amidst the jarred peaches, homemade chili sauce, hanging pots, and jars of mayonnaise (she never refrigerated the stuff, but I somehow survived), there was one shelf stacked high with her favorite cookbooks. She would often send me in search of a particular recipe in

Homemade Grenadine Syrup

by Angela Brown
Homemade Pomegranate Grenadine Syrup

My home cocktail bar is filled with my favorite small batch gin, vodka, tequila, rum, whiskey, bourbon and rye — say that fives times fast! I keep several compliments like vermouth and various fruit-flavored liquors. And, in addition to homemade simple syrup (1 part water to 1 part sugar) and various bitters, there’s always, always
