Martha and Snoop Dogg in New Reality Show

Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg became fast friends several years ago, doing several segments together on Martha's TV show. Now they will both be starring together in a new reality show on VH1 tentatively called 'Martha's & Snoop's Dinner Party.' Details about the show are scarce, but reports suggest it will be unscripted and will document a series of dinner parties hosted by the unlikely pair. Guests will include some of their celebrity friends. The show debuts this fall on VH1. The dynamic between these two is pretty hilarious, so I'm actually quite eager to see it!


The September Issue

The September issue will soon be making its way to newsstands and subscribers! This is the annual home issue - a favourite for many readers. The cover is a thoughtful ode to organization and 'back-to-school/back-to-work'neatness. It's fairly similar to last year's September cover, but it's nice. I love the copper accents. The cover also promises an exclusive look inside Martha's upcoming cookbook on vegetables! I'm looking forward to the issue, as always.


I'm still here!

Hi friends! Some of you have written to me and asked whether I've stopped the blog. I have not! I'm simply taking a break for the summer and will return in the fall. Things have been fairly quiet on the Martha front lately anyhow. Rest assured, I'm fine and still very much interested in the Martha Stewart brand. Have a wonderful summer and keep visiting! You can also find Martha Moments on Instagram @martha_moments and on Facebook!

Your food will arrive in a chilled, fully-recyclable cardboard box with the ingredients for the dishes you are planning to make separated into bags. Meat is kept separate, chilled with ice packs.

The Summer Issue

Just in time for the Summer Solstice, the July/August issue of Martha Stewart Living is arriving in subscriber mailboxes and will be on newsstands next week. I love the cover with its fresh berries and whipped cream. Inside promises to be a great celebration of summer themes. I can't wait to page through it slowly, sitting outside under a shady tree.


Martha is Working on a New TV Show!

According to the New York Post, Martha is working on a new television series based on her American Made initiative. The program will be one hour long and will show Martha working with American entrepreneurs to help them improve and grow their businesses. There has so far been no official announcement from Martha's team about the show.
Martha will be working with Amazon Prime to bring the series to air, however an executive producer has not been chosen and it is unclear how many episodes will be produced. According to the source quoted in the Post, the series will begin shooting in August with a planned debut for the end of the fourth quarter of the fiscal year.  The aim of the series will be to promote American entrepreneurs and to help sell their goods at Amazon.com through Martha's "American Made Market." Sounds like a great show!
