The cover of the May issue of Martha Stewart Living is picture perfect: a classic yellow cake with white frosting dressed with purple and yellow pansies. The recipe for the cake inside promises to be your go-to cake for just about any occasion and an article called "Flower to Table" will have you daring to bring some 'petal power' to your culinary creations. The magazine takes us to a dairy farm in Orwell, Vermont, and the following article on milk (and all its uses) drives home the essential importance of dairy to so many of our favourite treats. The drop cloth is reinvented and elevated to new heights around the house: dyed and tailored to add flare to indoor and outdoor spaces. Martha shares some of her best tips for aging well in an excerpt from her upcoming book "Living the Good Long Life" and Lucinda Scala Quinn pens a reflective essay about the joys and rewards of traveling with her mom. It's a fresh and lovely issue!
