Cooking with One Pot at the New York City Wine and Food Festival!

Dear Readers,

Last week I was happy to participate in the New York City Wine & Food Festival. The event was a lot of fun and it was a great venue for teaching people how to make some of the recipes from my best-selling book, ‘One Pot: 120+ Easy Meals from Your Skillet, Slow Cooker, Stockpot, and More.’

My first event, ‘Cooking with One Pot: A Master Class,’ was held at the International Culinary Center. I taught everyone at the sold-out class how to make the Fruit Skillet Cake and Linguini with Tomato and Basil.

Following the class, guests got a signed copy of One Pot and a gift bag with the new issue of Martha Stewart Living and an oven mitt from my line at Macy’s.

If you don’t already have a copy of ‘One Pot,’ be sure to get one so you can start making these fantastic recipes!

Remembering the Legend - Oscar de la Renta

Dear Readers,

I am mourning the loss of one of the last great designers of the 20th century - the legend and genius, Oscar de la Renta.

His designs evoked glamor and luxury and were celebrated as some of the most finely made in all of fashion.  He was a true talent, who went from drawing dresses for newspapers and fashion houses as a teenager, to creating dresses for Jacqueline Kennedy and every first lady thereafter, not to mention for countless celebrities and women all over the world!

Oscar appeared several times on The Martha Stewart Show to highlight his quintessential wedding gowns.  On stage and in life, he was of course always very well dressed, handsome, charming, fun and he possessed an elegance rarely seen in men anymore.  I will miss him, as will the world of fashion and beyond.

Please remember him with me by watching his appearances on my show. Click here to see the videos.
