The March issue of Martha Stewart Living is arriving in some subscriber mailboxes and the cover is a delightful hit of spring in the dead of winter: an array of speckled Easter eggs (yes, Easter is in March this year) in beautiful shades of blue, green and yellow. Inside the issue there are flower arrangements and gardens and all those myriad subjects MSL readers love. In her column, Martha shares her secrets for her annual Easter lunch and revisits some of the spring recipes published in the spring, 1991 issue of the magazine in honour of its 25th anniversary - all of them based on Russian traditions. Most lovely of all is Eric Pike's final letter to readers as editor in chief. In it, he thanks Martha for more than two decades of mentoring and guidance and he also thanks us, the readers, for always inspiring him. Elizabeth Graves will begin her role as editor in chief in the April issue. I have not yet received my copy in the mail but I am definitely looking forward to it!
This is an incredible issue! I've had a hard time putting it down!
I actually thought the last 2 issues were much better than some of the previous ones.
When the editors touch on many different aspects of "good things" the read is much more interesting. The last 2 covers also have been okay and not too over-the-top with crazily stacked food. Thought the process for making the speckled eggs was really inventive...I thought they maybe just splattered dye all over - yuk, what a mess that would've made! Let's hope the issues continue on this path.
'" kind of " off topice.....
While I am sure I did not need it, I purchased on eBay a very early edition of MSL ( #16/ November 1993).
I found it interesting in the "Weekly Letter From Martha", she mentioned a new venture, a weekly 1/2 hour TV show. It's interesting to read of her hopes for the TV format to "depict substance , quality of life and living , and sharing of ideas in a thorough and unique format". Her hopes were realized the show ultimately expanded to daily, then increased to an hour. Now 24 years later her fans still talk about the quality of the show, and as the positive comment above ( from Chris) , we all hope for continued success for Ms Stewart and her message.
A- for what ever reason I just now received the Feb issue, I just want to compliment the editors for beautiful photography and interesting articles.
B- completely off topic.....Is it just me , but is the set used on "Martha Bakes" completely underwhelming? While I have no problem with the MS cabinetry, although some of the shelving seems to be floating in the air, it is completely devoid of Ms Stewart's signature collections ( ie yellow ware, Fire King, or ironware) and seems not to offer her previous inviting, warm home feel. Again....it just may be the way I see it!
i really like the Martha Bakes set.
