What Happened During Martha Stewart's Reddit AMA
And what we learned.
Along with appearing on Late Night with rapper Lil’ Jon (of “Crunk Juice” fame), blogging about farm life in Bedford-Katonah, and dominating Pinterest (her works include a cake Bible, after all)—Martha Stewart found the time to participate in a reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) earlier this month. Topics covered: the best apples for baking, how often she changes her sheets, prison nicknames, and sex in the tub.
The domestic-empire owner’s refreshing openness, and good humor, about Snoop Dogg and tacos gave my admiration for her (minus that whole incarceration thing) a new facet—I’d previously presumed her frigid, like a strict Girl Scout troop leader to all of us would-be bakers and homemakers still in training. In tribute, here are five things from the branding queen I need in my life right this second:
2. These cylindrical salt and pepper containers handpicked from her American Made collective of independent US goods-makers
3. This cupcake-carrier—to save the Betty-Crocker-buttercream frosting on my office-potluck contributions—and these glass storage containers, to make leftovers more appealing (I already have and love this and this.)
4. The glitter pack of all Etsy-seller-wannabes’ glitter packs
5. This handy dog-grooming tote (an adorable gift for a new pet owner)
