Owning a NYC Food Business is Grand, and Other Lies Pinterest Told Me (Part 1)

  Oh, Angela. Over the last seven years of running little old Eat Boutique, I’ve felt many of the same emotions. I’ve found a kindred spirit in between Angela’s words and sentences, painful and inspiring. If you want to start a food business, read this first. (And, Angela, I owe you a beer sometime to

What We’re Loving: Figs

by Kate H. Knapp
What We're Loving: Figs

Ah, sweet and seductive figs. Though I grew up eating Fig Newtons—delightfully unaware that the fig in the name referred to an actual fruit—my love affair with the purple and plump figs didn’t truly begin until breakfast one morning in Paris (as so many epic romances do). Sitting with my adorable mom—who happens to be

How to Gift Wrap a Bottle

As I’m writing this cookbook, Food Gift Love, I’m recounting and recording my favorite recipes. It’s been a blast to relive the moment I first tasted homemade fried dough. I’m also playing with my favorite non-traditional pesto recipes, all chunky and green and perfect for the biggest bowl of homemade pasta possible. And spring rhubarb,

Rosemary Infused Honey

I love France for many reasons, and one of them is the flavored olive oils, vinegars, and honeys. They seem to make each and every dish just a little more special, a little more thought about. A splash of tarragon vinegar, a drizzle of basil oil, or the very best, a little pool of flavored

What We’re Loving: Smoothies

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

Sneak Peek at Food Gift Love Cookbook

Food Gift Love by Our Recipe Testers!

I’m at the peak of the #foodgiftlove cookbook writing process and I’m already dreading the end of all this fun – seriously. When I signed on to write a cookbook last December, I did so with hundreds of partially-packed gift boxes towering all around me. I couldn’t imagine spending every spare moment writing a cookbook

Spicy Mayonnaise

Spicy Mayo

My fridge is filled with condiments and I find they make the very best #foodgiftlove to the man, husband, father, backyard barbecue person in your life. I want to drizzle Matthew’s Spicy Mayonnaise onto just grilled vegetables or a potluck potato salad. If you like grilled potatoes, it would no doubt be a stellar dipping

What We’re Loving: Cherries

What We’re Loving: Cherries

So I might have this all-consuming love of cherries. The sort of love that has me justifying a giant paper bag of the ripest ones as lunch. Luckily, I am in the south of France right now, and positively swimming in them. The French take their cherries seriously, as do I, which is why overflowing

Spring dinner parties are best for light dinners that remind you that summer is oh so close. In this salad, fresh fish with a bit of oil in it pairs just beautifully with tart rhubarb. Try it with mackerel or trout or even anchovies. Your next weekend brunch party will be a hit, promise. -Maggie

What We’re Loving: Flaky Phyllo

by Kate H. Knapp

Magic. How else can one explain the dazzling layers of delightfully flaky dough that create such a myriad of different dishes? It has to be some sort of sorcery that turns something so delicate into a delicious dish (and why it always seems to vanish so quickly). I personally fell under its spell with my

Strawberry Rose Pavlova

It’s officially strawberry season! And after downing several (fifteen?) cartons of these delectable little berries fresh, you might be looking for a way to showcase them, which is where this dreamy pavlova comes in, courtesy of Jen. The French love to eat their strawberries with a little pile of sugar, and I think of this

Pickled Radishes

Pickled Radishes

Pickles are the universal food gift, seriously. The homemade kind take only minutes to make and add such punch to every sort of meal, from breakfast to break-time snacks. Angela shows us the easiest sort: pickled radishes with whole black peppercorns. In ten minutes or less, you’ll have the kind of #foodgiftlove that makes dinner shine

New Beginnings Beet Salad

We are all up for meatless meals, centered on hearty and delicious veggies. Thankfully, we have Casey to give us fresh takes on some old friends. Sweet roasted beets, acidic oranges, and a creamy, nutty pistachio dressing team up for this satisfying salad. -Amy I work a job where occasionally I get home late. More

Ramp Frittata

I’m ramp crazy. And I’m not alone. Matthew and I could make some seriously strong vodka martinis with his Pickled Ramps. They’d go great with the fresh pasta dish I’ve been tossing with ramps for the last few weeks. And now it’s time to add them to eggs, of course. Merci, Molly. -Maggie For me,

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
