The May Issue

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!

I for one, love this issue. It seems more "Martha" than recent issues.

I totally agree, Kenn. No surprise that we're on the same page. :-)

Does anyone remember the Pansy Cake? it was shaped and decorated to look like a giant pansy. It was from a MS magazine published in the early 80's!

Andrew did you see the article on turkey hill in cottages-gardens.com ? Oh, they did ruin aspects of that beautiful home when they bought it from martha!

Pru, I wasn't sure what magazine that article was from, but I've seen some of the photos. I'll be sure to check it out! Thanks!
