Brooklyn Brewery and Bits of Love

I’ve been thinking a lot about family and the family of friends I’ve built up through this short time on this planet and this long life of a food blog. It’s been an emotional week in Maggie-land, for so many reasons, but one very powerful one is the outpouring of support and generosity you have

Pear Rum Blush

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

Noma Restaurant, Copenhagen

For the last four days, I’ve chanted “I’m so lucky, I’m so lucky, I’m so lucky.” I dragged my family and all sorts of holiday-esque nourishments up to an 1800s home on a pond in the tiniest of villages in Vermont. We had an absolutely delightful Christmas in tundra-like cold with bits of sunshine peeking

Midnight Milk Punch

It’s Christmas Eve and there’s only one thing I like better than Champagne on this holiday, and that’s some sort of punch. Problem solved! I love a good eggnog, a festive mixture of fresh eggs, heavy cream and all sorts of spirits, the more, the merrier. This Midnight Milk Punch is eggless and easy to

Ginger Cocktails

I just love creating cocktails. Really, it’s the best way to spend an early Sunday morning while everyone is still asleep, especially during the holidays. Sometimes, I have to make seven or eight versions of a certain drink before it tastes just right. Yah, well, someone has to do it. I really enjoy the signature

Sweet Sparkling Tea

Before we lose the last rays of truly hot sun… Before the sitting under a shady tree feels cool instead of refreshing… Before your friends disappear into Fall busy life and can’t join you for a 2pm cocktail hour in the garden… And certainly before the Eat Boutique Fall Market… Make a pitcher of this

We introduced our Flower Sessions last month with a photo spread from our shoot done in January. As you may remember, that session was photographed by my friend Heidi Murphy of White Loft Studio. Well, congratulations to Heidi! Her photos were featured in a photography magazine called Light and Truth and we couldn’t be more

Citrus Panna Cotta

Jam jars to serve lemonade and iced tea are a summer classic.  Now French yogurt jars to dole out homemade panna cotta?  Yes, please.  Thanks to Heidi for bringing together seasonal citrus, one of our favorite recipes and some pretty glassware from our recent trip to Paris to re-invent this classic Italian custard.  We’d love

Paris and Copenhagen were… beautiful. I have so much to share, including details on our lunch at Noma in Copenhagen. While we get those photos together, I wanted to post a preview of the gorgeousness that was Europe. The two photos above are from Noma and the two photos below are from Paris. Promise to

Lavender Honey Macarons

Macarons are big business in Paris and I tend to indulge in those made by my favorite small bakeries all over the city. After all, there’s always a few minutes to pop in for a sweet bite and quick espresso when wandering the city of light. While macarons are much-admired and often-recreated by food bloggers

Eat Boutique Holiday Local Market

This past weekend, New England was blanketed with a layer of wet, heavy snow. Despite it being just plain wrong for the snow to make such an early appearance, the chilly air and light coat of white made me so excited for the holidays. Why? Well, I’ve got a couple pieces of good news… First,

Eat Boutique Fall Gift Boxes

Oh my, when did Fall show up? Believe me, I love Fall more than a big bowl of spaghetti carbonara from Sportello Boston (which is suddenly off the menu, what’s up with that?!) but one day it was 85 degrees and today it’s cold and rainy and crimson leaves dot the path to the garden.
