In Maggie’s Kitchen: Morning Polenta Porridge, a Cookbook Update and Spring Events

Happy Monday, my friends, Let’s enjoy this last week of February, and talk mostly foodstuff and a little bit of other stuff. Cookbook Update: I’m having so much fun finishing up this cookbook, and while I know the release date is more than six months away, I know it will be here super quick. I’m

Candied Clementines

Candied Clementines

Winter is a living thing in New England, especially this year. When it weeps, freezing rain or snow (usually snow) tumbles into every last corner of these hills. When the season takes a sigh, almost as exhausted with itself as we are, windows and walls rattle from the gusty wind. But when she beams, as

Roasted Butternut and Sage Sauce Lasagne

Roasted Butternut and Sage Sauce Lasagne

Oh my gosh, if it gets any colder out there, I’m going to just… dig into this lasagne, the entire casserole dish, in front of a fire. And then I’ll make another to gift to you because squash and cheese are magic, definitely. Thank you, Mary, for gifting us with our new go-to lasagne recipe.

In Maggie’s Kitchen: Pop-Up Thanks, Snack Mix and Parsley Sauce

New England is having a day, a week, a month. One more snowstorm and we’ll be awarded the snowiest winter on record (ever) award. All I want to do is bake lots of things (perhaps from my Bake Me Something Good board) and eat it all up, but instead, I’ll share what’s up this week. Pop-Up

Celebrate Chinese New Year at Home: Classic Chinese Dumplings

by Amy Feiereisel
Celebrate Chinese New Year with Classic Chinese Dumplings

The earliest foods that I remember are nearly all Chinese. Though my father is American, my mother was born in Taiwan, and as she is the cook of the two, I had rice and butter instead of toast, stir fried cabbage instead of broccoli, and five spice pork instead of roast beef. The flavors that

Apotheker’s Kitchen: Bee-Sweetened Hot Cocoa & The Secret Life of Chocolatiers

Just one taste of their honey-sweetened confections, and you know instantly that Russ and Shari Apotheker of Apotheker’s Kitchen were destined to create all-natural and delicious chocolates (and marshmallows, for that matter). Their handcrafted treats are made with only the very best ingredients, like their chocolate, which is organically and biodynamically grown and sourced from a small,

Red Wine Chocolate Truffles

What are you doing for Valentine’s weekend? Well, of course, it’s a weekend. When the holiday falls on a Saturday, the whole weekend becomes a celebration of love or hot and spicy food or small-batch chocolate or binge-watching Downton Abbey or every single Beyonce video with some ice cream. You know, you choose. Valentine’s Day

DIY Gift Wrap and Love Letters for Valentine’s Day or Any Day

If you’ve been to my home, you know that this Food Gift Love thing is no joke. I live it, quite naturally. However, I didn’t realize it was the making of a cookbook until I started storing everything in a single place in my home. Before, bits and bobs were floating all around, sometimes, never,

In Maggie’s Kitchen: Seafood Fra Diavolo, Slow-Roasted Salmon, Cookbook News and It’s Almost Valentine’s Day

by Maggie Battista
In Maggie’s Kitchen:

Hello friends, I just returned from a weekend away and, naturally, I have a few things to share because… it’s Monday! Spice It Up: I fell in love, again, with Maine and most certainly in love, again, with fra diavolo sauce. I don’t know why it’s evaded my cooking repertoire this long but, oh yes,

What We’re Loving: Spicy Dishes for Valentine’s Day

Oh, Valentine’s Day, how I have loathed and loved you. I hate being told what to do (especially when it comes to showing affection for those I care about), but I love chocolate, champagne, and all the wonderful food gifts the holiday produces. This year, however, I’m skipping the sweet treats and celebrating with the “hot stuff,”

Spicy Orange and Almond Dark Chocolate Bark

Spicy Orange and Almond Dark Chocolate Bark

It wouldn’t be February without chocolate. Even better, this spicy dark chocolate is zinged with orange zest, making it bright and picante in the same bite. Make it for someone you love and keep half for yourself, okay? -Maggie My first experience with spicy chocolate was when I was an undergraduate. I was living in

The Easiest Meyer Lemon Jam

by Maggie Battista
The Easiest Meyer Lemon Jam

Meyer lemons were the very first fruit I preserved more than seven years ago, or in other words, forever-ago. I probably should have taken it easy on myself by jamming apples or strawberries, but I didn’t. I attacked the fancy fruit head on because, first, I’m nuts like that and, second, they really do make

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
