This is so cool! What a great idea!
On Martha, she said to use a parchment under foil because of a reaction the foil causes? Can you explain? This was during the artichoke recipe.
Wendy- You’re referring to my Nov. 25 2008 post about baked artichoke hearts. Yes, Lucinda, the editor presenting the dish, said to first cover it with parchment, then cover with foil. The reason is that foil could react with the artichoke hearts because of the acid content. When I made mine, I did not use parchment. I covered the dish with foil, but did not let the foil touch the food, so it wasn’t a concern. I think that only if you have your dish really full so that the foil could touch it would you need to use parchment first.
Just had some of your chocolate chip muffins. They were fantastic. I don’t think you could improve on them. Thanks!
Thank you for the smiles. I too try to craft using Martha as my inspiration. You brought back memories of my mishaps with Martha guiding me. It must be in the staff where crafts fail. Thats it, firing staff. LOL. I do have a few crafts that did turn out as discribed by Martha. I made the brown paper sack tree and the salt flour to make ghost and pumpkins. The ghost are a trick to make, but the pumpkins and tree turned out great. This craft is a good one to make with the children. Also for next Halloween try making the tootsie pop spiders with pipe cleaners. I handed these out to the trick or treaters. A big hit. Good luck to you and the rest of the Martha’s in your home.
Hey just wondering if you are okay?! You haven’t posted lately and usually you do every day. I miss your postings. Hope all is well, Tara
Hi, I enjoy your site. Congratulations on becoming a member of Friends of Martha. How come you on using Twitter though?
Hi Pru. I am on Twitter @MarthaAndMeBlog
I just made the squeamish squash with rice dish and it came out very good. I think that the problems that you had were the instructions forgot to mention that with jasmine and other non Uncle Ben type rices you need to rinse and stir the rice in a bowl of water until the water* in the bowl is almost clear before draining it and using it in a dish. Also the amount of Squash listed is way too vague. One half squash could be 3/4lb to almost 2+ lbs? I used about 1.5 cups diced, but 1.75 cups would have been perfect. I cooked the mixture for 23min and put it covered on a back [cold burner to let it absorb the rest of the water. I used 2 1/4 cups of water. Next time I would adjust the water [less because of absorbing in the rinsing process. My rice was very soft but not quite mushy and the squash cubes did not break up….All for Now William Kinsley
*4 to 6 rinses or water changes
Thanks for posting. Did you add any seasoning though? Because even if it wasn’t mushy and gross, it still had absolutely not flavor. I used brown rice by the way. I agree it was far too much squash.

I am trying to track down a recipe and I’m not sure where I saw it. I believe it was in the October 2009 issue of Everyday Food and thought I ripped out the page before recycling but cannot find it so I’m not sure where I saw it. It was a non-alcoholic punch recipe and had floating eyeballs. I wanted to try it out with the kids to see if it was worth making for our party next weekend. I found a punch eyeball recipe on MS.com but it’s not the one I remember.
Do you have this issue to take a look any chance? I remember seeing the Halloween Blondies which I found on your site which is why I’m thinking it was the same issue.
Regards – PJZ
I don’t, sorry. I didn’t start my Martha project until the Nov. 2009 issue. The Halloween blondies were in this October’s issue of Everyday Food. I hope you find the recipe!
I am getting ready to make the nut wreath and want to know how to hang the wreath??? Please respond, I am making the wreath for a gift.
Hi Jill. It’s very easy. The wooden wreath form has holes on the back so you can thread a wire through and then hang it by that. If you have a form that does not have holes, you could glue a hanging hook on the back before you start gluing the nuts on.
I think it’s my turn to pick. Even though I haven’t been posting much I have been cooking. Imagine that!
The potato and zucchini hash from the May Everyday Food looks awesome. I think I may even make the french toast blt too.
Have a great day!
Thanks Karen. I’m a bit behind here and was going to email this morning to ask you your pick. Thanks for being on top of it! I’ll post this in a post today.
I just read your comment on FoodBlogAlliance about getting Google Analytics working on WordPress. There are a lot of free tools available to you through the plugins. I am using Google Analytics for WordPress by Joost de Vaulk and it works great. Also try Google XML Sitemaps (submits you to more search engines) and I use HeadSpace2 for my SEO. If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me at anytime. If you get a minute, check out the site as well. I like your site and am going to add it to my blogroll.
I just stumbled on this site and am very excited! It was great I was able to subscribe. Looking forward to
reading it from the beginning!!!!
I was watching a Martha Stewart video and came across your site. Really liked your insight to stuffed shells.
Michaels does not have the wreath frames — where can I purchases or order?
I’m sorry, I don’t know. I would suggest googling it. Or try a floral supply store that is meant to be wholesale.
