Celebrate Mother's Day with the MarthaStewart.TV App

Mother's Day is on Sunday, May 12th - just a week away. I always look forward to spending this special occasion with my daughter, Alexis, and her beautiful children, Jude and Truman.

My mother, Martha Kostyra, or Big Martha, was the Kostyra family matriarch. As many of you know, she often appeared with me on my television programs. In fact, while dining out, running errands, or exercising at the YMCA, fans would often approach my mother for her autograph. Cooking was a huge part of Mom’s life and she loved sharing her recipes. The recipes I learned from her are among our most requested year after year. They include traditional Polish dishes such as stuffed cabbage, sweet and savory pierogis, and comfort food favorites such as roast loin of pork, borscht, meatloaf, and macaroni and cheese. My mother’s dessert recipes are equally mouthwatering - spice cake, white cake, lemon meringue cake, and classics like blueberry buckle and rice pudding.

All my mother’s appearances – and the recipes she was so pleased to share – are available to watch on the Martha Stewart.TV App. Download the App on your phone, tablet, or streaming device. You’ll find full episodes of Martha Stewart Living, The Martha Stewart Show, as well as one-hour holiday specials. To subscribe and save, use promo code MOM19.

My mother made more than 40-appearances on my television programs. Here are a few funny moments we shared on set.

After my mother's passing, my staff and I put together this tribute to share with family, friends, and fans. To all of the mothers and mother figures, I wish you a lovely Mother’s Day.
