In 1965, her daughter was born, and Stewart quit modeling, In 1967 she began a successful second career as a stockbroker. When the stock market began to falter, Stewart and her family moved to Westport, Connecticut in 1972. She developed a catering business first in partnership with a friend from her college days, and then on her own. In ten years this business, which she ran out of the basement of her farmhouse, had become a $1 million enterprise. She also opened a retail store in Westport to sell specialty foods and supplies for entertaining. Stewart wrote articles for the New York Times and was an editor and columnist for the magazine House Beautiful. In 1982 Martha Stewart published the first of many lavishly illustrated books. "Entertaining," co-written with Elizabeth Hawes, was an instantaneous success, and made Martha Stewart into a one-woman industry. Soon she was producing video tapes, dinner-music CDs, television specials and a baker's dozen more books, including books of quick recipes, books on hors d'oeuvres, pies, weddings, Christmas, gardening and restoring old houses. Regular appearances on the Today show made her a household name. She signed an advertising and consulting contract with Kmart.

In 1993 Martha Stewart started a syndicated half-hour TV show called, like her magazine, Martha Stewart Living.

Martha Stewart Living has been honored with numerous awards, including three National Magazine Awards, more than 50 Society of Publication Designers Awards, and the Acres of Diamonds Awards for Magazine Development. In 2004, she served five months in jail for conspiracy, obstruction of an agency proceeding, and making false statements to federal investigators concerning the sale of her shares in the pharmaceutical company ImClone days before its application for a new drug was denied.

I thought this was a good book with useful advice. I liked the breakdown of months with suggested duties. Would have liked more photos to illustrate points made.

Spinach and Herb Omelet, Michelle Bernstein, p.89, no.28 (July/August 2008), pretty good.

Basically, I think Martha Stewart did this book as an excuse to give lots of parties. You can say that she presents an unrealistic example for modern women, and she does, but that isn't the point. I think the point is to help you dream a bit about giving a party of your own. In that respect, well, I, I'm trying to plan a holiday open house and I lay the blame for this mad inspiration at Martha's feet.
