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


No Comments


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 Gratitude: Thank you for showing up during our Valentine’s Day Pop-Up this weekend. I closed a day early due to the blizzard, but I loved meeting you and introducing some of our new makers and treats. Let’s do it again soon, maybe next month. If you missed it, check out our new inventory in the online boutique. Think chocolate and peanut butter cups and hot cocoa and hot sauce!

Time to Make the Donuts: The more snow that falls, the more I want to eat all the donuts. These brioche donuts from Sarah Keiffer are stunning. Get them ready for the next snow storm or a rainy day.


Parsley Sauce: I made a parsley sauce that I will put on everything — a salad, a veggie bowl, a bowl of pasta — this week. It’s so loosely based on this bright recipe from Amy Chaplin. I replaced the fennel-dill-mint combo with a huge batch of parsley and switched up the lime juice with lemon juice, adding a lot more to brighten it up. I think you might love it too.

Homemade Snack Mix: Swedish fish belong in everything, right? I piled them into this Homemade Snack Mix that I wrote about for Style Me Pretty Living last week. You like Swedish fish, right? Right.

Stay super warm. Spring is only five weeks away.

xox, Maggie
