My mother, despite failing on the "P" front, is a big fan of Ms. Stewart. She sometimes gives old copies of her magazine to Flea who then puts them in a pile until someone remembers to throw them away.
The magazine is not at all like the TV Show. Nexa has a few copies of the magazine. The magazine I understand completely. There is one within reach, let me see what an article is....making your own candy and then boxes to give it as gifts in. I understand that. Most people probably don't make candy and boxes regularly.
Maye I just saw an unrepresentative episode. Hard for me to imagine your mother couldn't fry an egg and make french toast prior to learning from Martha, or saw much value in it.
