My LIVE Valentine's Day Facebook Chat with Seth Meyers

Today is expected to be one of the coldest of the season here in the Northeast. It’s a great time to stay indoors and make something fun with the family, and for Valentine’s Day, such as hot, savory, homemade pretzels.

I hope you were able to catch my special LIVE Facebook chat yesterday. I had a wonderful time making pretzels with my friend and talk show host, Seth Meyers.

We made cocktails, shared stories and answered questions LIVE from our Martha Stewart Living Kitchen made exclusively at The Home Depot.

If you missed my Valentine’s Day special, you can still watch it - just click on this link to my Facebook chat, and enjoy these photos.

Mounts Botanical Garden of Palm Beach County

If you’re in or near West Palm Beach, Florida this weekend, try to make a trip to Mounts Botanical Garden of Palm Beach County. It is a spectacular place to visit, and through Sunday, February 14th, you can walk through the whimsical and fun “Nature Connects” exhibit by artist, Sean Kenney - 14 larger than life sized sculptures all made using LEGOs building bricks.

Mounts is Palm Beach County’s oldest and largest public garden. Located on 14-acres, Mounts displays tropical and subtropical plants from around the world, including temperate North American trees, Florida natives, rare fruit trees, aquatics and arid-land plants.

I visited Mounts during my recent trip to Palm Beach and took these photos - enjoy.

A Visit to "Villa Fontana" in Palm Beach, Florida

A brief trip south to escape the cold winter can be so invigorating.

Over the weekend, I traveled to sunny Palm Beach, Florida to spend time with friends, and to enjoy the warmer weather. I always try to include as much as I can during my trips, so they are productive, informational and fun. My friend, entertainment banker and entrepreneur, Lisbeth Barron, made sure we had lots to do - we visited gardens, museums, and shops. We also toured the remarkable “Villa Fontana” - the home of Bill Eberhardt, and the late artist and collector, John Eberhardt. John’s passion and talent for painting are featured in every room. It includes trompe l'oeil finishes, and architectural details hand-crafted by John himself, plus European antiques purchased during his many travels. You may recognize his name - John worked as a set designer, and was a pioneer developer of Cherry Grove, Fire Island, New York, where he built another famous residence, “The Belvedere”.

Enjoy these photos - this is the first of several blogs from my recent trip to Palm Beach.
