The March Issue

When you've been bundled up in sweaters for the last twelve weeks and cranking the heater while it snows outside, it's nice to receive even the tiniest promise of spring. The March issue of Martha Stewart Living magazine is just such a promise. Martha takes the cover of this issue (first time since October, 2017) and I loved seeing her in her green Marc Jacobs top standing behind a table laden with a St. Patrick's Day feast. (All the recipes are included inside, don't worry).
The issue has a freshness to it, a devotion to airiness, colour and light. It starts with the cover and continues throughout the issue. There's a feature on the glories of olive oil, visits to a crafty shop in Ojai, California, an arid garden in Phoenix as well as a sunny home in Philadelphia. In the front of the issue, too, there is reason to linger. I love the article on meditation (something I need more of in my life) and the "Change Maker" column about Kei & Molly textiles in New Mexico whose beautifully printed linens will have you wanting to fill your entire home with their colourful prints.

Sarah Carey and her team of food editors give us fun and healthy recipes in the Everyday Food section (that tuna-salad hand roll has my name on it) while the Good Living section reveals the best locations and vendors used by interior designers to source their best goods.

Starting with this issue, I'll select my favrourite features from each: the best Good Thing, the most intriguing recipe, the best find, and the most engaging article. Here are my picks for March, 2020:


Favourite Good Thing: stout shandy on page 24

Favourite Recipe: Spaghetti with Garlic, Olive Oil and Chile on page 76

Favourite Find: Chance by Chanel (Mother's Day gift = solved!) on page 44

Favourite Article: "Just For Us" - the home tour on page 92

The issue is on newsstands now! Be sure to pick up a copy.

Two things AR, The magazine cover is channeling the first issues of Mon't ya know. and the embroidery on the "banner" is that your handiwork? It is charming.
