On The Today Show with "Martha Stewart's Cookie Perfection"

I am so excited about my latest book, “Martha Stewart's Cookie Perfection: 100+ Recipes to Take Your Sweet Treats to the Next Level” from Clarkson Potter. Do you have your copy? With the holidays coming up, this book is sure to come in very handy.

This week, during my appearance on The Today Show, I showed Andy Cohen, Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb, and Al Roker, several recipes from the book - Maple Cream Sandwich Cookies, Halloween Spiderweb Cookies, and Potato Chip Cookies. I also showed them my White Chocolate Swiss Meringue Kisses, Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies, and my pretty Linzer Flower Cookies. In addition, our set was decorated with pieces from my Martha Stewart Collection “Harvest Gold” exclusively at Macy’s. Among them - my Ceramic Figural Squirrel, Harvest Gold Acorn Box, Harvest Pumpkin Berry Artificial Garland, and more. It was such a fun segment filled with ideas and inspirations.

Picking More Dahlias at My Farm

My garden continues to produce lots of gorgeous, bright, and colorful dahlias.

Just ahead of this week’s violent storm that battered several states across the Northeast, my head gardener Ryan McCallister and my housekeepers, Enma Sandoval and Sanu Sherpa, rushed to cut and gather dozens of dahlias, so we could enjoy them indoors. Dahlias bloom from midsummer right through the first frost, and since temperatures in the area have not yet dipped into the 30s, we’re still able to pick lots of the season’s last flowers. I hope you caught a glimpse of some on my Instagram page @MarthaStewart48.

Here are more photos - enjoy.

Planting Japanese Zelkova Trees

Tree planting continues at my Bedford, New York farm with a group of beautiful Japanese zelkova trees.

My gardeners and outdoor grounds crew are working very hard to plant as many saplings as possible before the ground freezes. The most recent project - a row of zelkovas along one section of my lower hayfield. Zelkova serrata is a medium-sized deciduous tree that typically grows up to 100-feet tall with a spreading, upward-branching, vase-shaped crown. Native to Japan, Taiwan, and eastern China, zelkovas are noted for their attractive bark and dense, clean foliage. These trees will look stunning in the landscape.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
