Our 2015 Employee Wellness Expo
Our annual Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Employee Wellness Expo continues to be a big success.

Our wellness expo is a great way to bring awareness about the many ways we can all live well.

Making My Favorite Pink Applesauce
One morning this week, I decided to make some delicious pink applesauce. I discovered how to make it purely by accident, while making a batch of regular applesauce.

I’ve been making pink applesauce ever since.

Harvesting Pumpkins at My Farm
Here in the Northeast, autumn is in full swing, and that means it's pumpkin-picking time at my farm.
Every June, my gardeners and I plant pumpkin seeds in a corner of the farm behind my main greenhouse and cutting garden. By October, the pumpkins, squash, and gourds are ready to be harvested.

A Barn Tour at My Cantitoe Corners Farm
This week, the Bedford Riding Lanes Association (BRLA) held its most recent fund-raiser, the BRLA Barn Tour. The BRLA is a publicly supported nonprofit organization that maintains and develops the historic system of trails and dirt roads.
Many of the trails run through private estates, and occasionally the association organizes barn tours so visitors can see some of the stunning facilities in the vicinity. I am always so honored to open my Cantitoe Corners Stable and Carriage House for its tours.Read More About the Tour on Martha's Blog
The Great Jack O' Lantern Blaze
The electrifying Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze returns to the Historic Hudson Valley Van Cortlandt Manor House for another year.
If you’re in the New York City tristate area any time during the next few weeks, I encourage you to visit the the Blaze in Croton-on-Hudson. Through November 15, the Historic Hudson Valley turns the Manor House landscape into a Halloween wonderland, with thousands of carved and illuminated jack-o'-lanterns inspired by themes of the 18th century and other more traditional Halloween subjects.
The exhibit is under the direction of Michael Natiello, the creative director of Historic Hudson Valley and the “head carver” of the Blaze event.
