We’ve been sharing sneak peeks of our Makers; now it’s time to talk about some of the amazing mini-events going on during the Eat Boutique Boston Holiday Market on December 7, 2013. I’ve been working with a lovely lady, Meg, to plan all sorts of Market festivities. Here’s a rundown of the classes and workshops

April showers have done exactly what they should: They have finally given us May flowers. We’ve had 6-7 days of straight sun and vast blue skies in the northeast, the bulb flowers have popped and we’re all feeling quite lucky. Now, don’t ask me if I’ve actually spent any of those sunshine-filled days in the

As I endeavor to suck as much celebration from February as humanly possible, I present you with a favorite cocktail that I crafted for my monthly column collaboration on Snippet & Ink with Heidi Murphy. We ransacked my family room to take these shots, shoving my old barn table against a chocolate-colored wall to set off the

In just a few days, we’ll toast to the New Year, filled with anticipation for another 365 days full of possibilities. Your toasts could be filled with any of the below cocktails from a few of our favorite virtual bartenders (also known as, our favorite food bloggers!). Cheers to a delicious 2013! This St. Festivus

Flavored Water: Cucumber Lemongrass and Blackberry Ginger Recipes

There’s something rustic and romantic about a cool pitcher of water adorning a summer picnic table and the ice cubes rattling about the glass jug.  There is also something relaxing about drinking those fruit and vegetable flavored waters on a spa visit that seems so…luxurious.  Thanks to Denise, now I can have both, at home.

Sure the summer weekends are for great big cookouts.  But I don’t have a big backyard, or a grill, so I thought why not host an after work happy hour on the patio or in the kitchen with the air conditioning at full blast?  Either option gives me the chance to plate up some chic

Spritzer sounds so, girly, I know. But honestly, when it tastes this good, I don’t care. And when it looks this stunning, I want to serve it to everyone. Even the boys. Happy Memorial Day!   – Maggie I was in a restaurant last week for dinner, a gorgeous place with a menu that was

My short week gallivanting all over Brooklyn/New York City was FABULOUS and I can’t wait to write more about the Cookbook Conference. That conference changed my perspective on everything and I made some new forever friends. BUT, we have bigger things to celebrate today. It’s Valentine’s Day and if your sweetie didn’t send you one

Sitting in my tiny Brooklyn apartment, during what’s been a whoosh of a week, I’m about ready for a cocktail. It’s almost Friday, how about you? To be honest, I actually sipped a beautiful coupe filled with fig jam, rum and sparkling wine last night at local restaurant Dumont. It reminded me of my Sparkling

We’re down to the final hours, 2012 is really just moments away. I’m ringing in the New Year in Portland, Maine. The working port is just outside my apartment window, the ferries chugging back and forth between some of the prettiest islands in all of the States, in my humble opinion. But it’s too cold

Cranberry Champagne Cocktail

I love using homemade simple syrups in our cocktails.   Once I mastered the base recipe for simple syrup, I began experimenting with flavors.   You may be wondering, how does one “master” making simple syrup.   Isn’t it sugar and water?   It may be only made with these two ingredients, but different sugars,

We’re in the midst of one of my favorite weeks of the year! The anxiety of Christmas has passed and the peaceful days leading up to the new year are just plain lovely and party-filled. Everyone seems to be in a good mood, perhaps because we’ve bid adieu to family, and my afternoons are filled

It’s December 1st and, certainly, it’s busy. We’re in the final planning moments of our second local market, a Holiday Local Market taking place next week. I’m sourcing ribbon to wrap your market food gifts, creating hang tags for those gifts, speaking to food makers about final details and even signing on some wonderful last

5 Little Secrets and a Canal House-inspired Lunch

I am going to let you in on five little secrets. First, (secret #1) it’s tough to put these words out there but I have totally over-extended myself. Sometimes, I feel like I have 10 different jobs. Eat Boutique is my passion, my heart, really. But it certainly battles for my free time, up against

Honey & Saffron Liquor

I’m no stranger to a good homemade cordial. J’adore the mix of instant and delayed gratification from the infusing process. Liquors generally need to stew for weeks or even months to fully form and then morph into all sorts of directions over time, but most recipes take mere minutes to come together. And I am
