August Preview

Of the summer issues of Martha Stewart Living, which generally are not my favourites, the August issue stands out each year as the most impressive. This year is no exception. The August issue arrived today in my mail box and the cover alone was enough to endear it to me. The issue is devoted to the best American ideas, from coast to coast to coast. From Louisiana's fishing traditions to the best New York cocktails, from a California garden to a summer home on Lake Michigan, the editors bring us the best of the nation. I already have my favourite articles, but here is a preview!

The cover is an invitation to sit back and relax, take in the summer breezes and sample delicious summer fare.
The style section of this issue is a great one - a look at some of the classics that all wardrobes should have, based on the theme of a weekend excursion: the best bets for the country, beachside classics, etc. An article on the history of American cocktails is a thirst-quenching delight!

Make a bold statement with your own handmade necklaces. A step-by-step article on string beading shows you how.

A look at the best of American produce - and the best recipes to match!
Fishing and cooking in Louisiana!
