The domestic diva’s omnimedia is making some major cuts this year
Looks like Martha Stewart’s media empire is still suffering just a bit; Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia (MSLO) announced this week that they will stop printing Everyday Food on the regular, instead incorporating it occasionally into the flagship Martha Stewart Living magazine.
The brand, however, will also live online, as the company focuses on a YouTube channel and a daily video newsletter.
Furthermore, the company is hoping to sell Whole Living, and if Whole Living can’t sell, it’ll suffer the same fate as Everyday Food.
The New York Post reports that 12 percent of MSLO staff has been laid off as a result of these cuts, which could save the conglomerate some $33 to $35 million a year. Even worse: an unnamed source says the staff has been out of the office all week because of power outages post-Sandy.
"They sent a memo saying, ‘Thinking of you all [during] this demanding and difficult week,’ and then they’ll contact employees individually about the layoffs," the source told the Post. "Now the staff is all just sitting at home freaking out, wondering, ‘Are they going to contact me?’"

Martha Stewart Kills Off ‘Everyday Food’ - Recipes
The other week Carrie left a comment saying that Issue #1 of Everyday Food had gone on Ebay for $50. I have that issue, I have a full stack of Everyday Food magazines up to number 25. I stopped buying them, I think, because we bought this house and suddenly my world was filled with painting and not spending money.
Anyhow, after hearing about the Ebay thing I decided to look at whether I use the magazines. The answer is, not so much anymore. There are a handful of recipes we like and I refer to, but all of those are on marthastewart.com and I have printed out ages ago since the Everyday Food magazine is nearly impossible to keep open on my kitchen counter. I also printed them because finding the recipes was always a chore, after spending way to look looking through table of contents for that one chicken thyme, maybe oregano?, recipe I took to bookmarking anything that looked promising:
Which resulted in me hunting through bookmarks to find recipes. Still frustrating. I started something like this very nice Everyday Food Magazine Index, but then came the moving and the painting. I’ve downloaded that index and it’s a-ok.
I’ve considered getting rid of them (or now, of course, selling them on Ebay) but then comes the holidays and there are a few issues promising a trouble-free Thanksgiving or with lots of cookies on the cover and I think they might be useful again. The magazines are cheerful looking enough, but still take up quite a lot of space.
I have no way of substantiating the Issue #1 Ebay fetching price other than watching the a current auction to see how it goes, or I could just call to see if I can purchase a back issue. If they still have it it might not be worth as much as I hope.
So, here for my own reference are the recipes I use, a lot of these have become more reference points, and some I only made once but liked. I use fewer recipes than I have issues, it might be time to sell ‘em.
Martha Stewart’s Everyday Food and Whole Living Magazines In Trouble
Uh-oh. On Thursday Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia announced it was dramatically scaling back two of its four magazines and laying off 12 percent of its company, which is about 70 employees. Both Everyday Food and Whole Living will be see significant cuts and changes.
According to The New York Times, Martha’s cooking digest Everyday Food will be cut from 10 issues a year to five, and will now be delivered as a supplement to subscribers of Martha Stewart Living rather than as a stand-alone publication. Executives are also discussing selling Whole Living, which has suffered a 24 percent decline in advertising pages in the last year, or at least fold its content into Martha Stewart Living if a sale agreement can’t be reached.
All in all, it’s bad news for Martha Stewart. The publishing arm of the company still provides 64 precent of the total revenue, according to recent public filings.
Martha Stewart Details Her 'Horrifying' Prison Experience: 'No One Should Have to Go Through That'
The domestic guru is opening up about her five month stint at West Virginia&rsquos Alderson Federal Prison Camp.
“It was horrifying and no one, no one, should have to go through that kind of indignity really except for murderers, and there are a few other categories, but no one should have to go through that,” she told Katie Couric in an exclusive clip for a new episode of Couric’s self-titled podcast. “It’s a very, very awful thing.”
Since it’s been 13 years since Stewart was sentenced for lying about the sale of a stock, Couric wondered whether the domestic guru felt it was a growth experience for her after all this time.
“[Did I feel] that ‘you can make lemons out of lemonade’ and ‘what hurts you makes you stronger’? No. None of those adages fit at all,” she said on the podcast, which has also hosted stars like Alec Baldwin, Ina Garten and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. “It’s a horrible experience, nothing is good about it, nothing.”
Stewart, now 76, was placed in minimum security prison, but assured Couric that it was no walk in the park. “There are lots and lots of disturbing things that go on in an incarceration like that,” she said. “In minimum security you still couldn’t walk out the gate or cross the river. There’s still guards and it’s still nasty.”

The home cook also credited her negative experience to ing taken away from your family, being maligned, and being treated the way you were treated,” she said. “It’s horrible and especially when one does not feel one deserves such a thing.”
But with her ever-expanding empire, like the release of her 89th cookbook, Martha Stewart’s Slow Cooker, and the success of her show Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party, Stewart refuses to let those unbearable five months define her.

“One thing I do not ever want is to be identified or I don’t want that to be the major thing of my life,” she said. “It’s just not fair. It’s not a good experience and it doesn’t make you stronger. I was a strong person to start with and thank heavens I was and I can still hold my head up high and know that I’m fine.”
The full interview with Stewart is available through the Katie Couric podcast on Thursday.
Grocery Bag from April Edition of Everyday Food
If you're new to Obsessed with Martha Stewart, you may not have read my previous grocery bag posts in which I make the 5 meals listed in the grocery bag article of Everyday Food. Each month, it tests my abilities as a cook and my picky eater palette. I've tried many foods that I'd never eaten due to these recipes, and I've been pleasantly surprised by how cooking certain ingredients different ways changes their flavors. This month, I found two dishes two add to my regular rotation and a couple others that I'll definitely make again.
Monday: Baked Eggs and Tortillas in Creamy Tomato Sauce
This was my least favorite meal out of the bunch. I really don't like "mushy" things. Seriously. One example of this is that I eat my cereal in five spoonful servings at a time, because I won't eat it if it gets soggy. The first time I ate cereal in front of my husband, he thought I was a little nuts. My biggest complaint from this meal was the mushy tortillas. The flavors were decent and it was a fun way to cook eggs for dinner, but I'd never make this meal again, even though my husband really enjoyed it. Sorry, hubby - it's not happening.
Tuesday: Zucchini Pasta with Ricotta
I'm a pasta lover, but I mainly like pastas with tomato sauces. I don't sway from those very often. Then I realized the deliciousness and simplicity of this dish. It was freakin awesome. The day after we had this for lunch, I ate lunch at 11:00 a.m., because I couldn't stop thinking about the creamy goodness of this pasta. And you don't have to feel too guilty, because one serving is only 565 calories. Compare that to your favorite dish that you get at your local Italian restaurant.
This pasta dish was a cinch to make with only a handful of ingredients including EVOO, zucchini, salt and pepper, linguine, lemon, and ricotta. That combination was delightful.
Wednesday: Tangy Chicken With Orzo Pilaf
Out of all of the dinners from this week, this one was the biggest pain to make, taking about 1 hour and 15 minutes. That's a little tough to swallow for a weekday meal, but when you realize that you're basically making two meals it's more pleasant. You save half of the sauce and the chicken breasts for Friday's dinner. After I finished cooking, my husband and I ate dinner enjoying a glass of wine. Things that shall not be mentioned here We hadn't put away the chicken or the sauce and it was a congealed mess on the counter top. There went Friday's easy dinner, because I'd have to remake the sauce and chicken. To top it all off, I couldn't fall back to sleep, so I was irritable the next day. Thursday: Bean and Cheese Burritos Oh. My. Holy. Deliciousness. I usually like my burritos with some type of meat, preferably chicken, but this recipe didn't call for meat. I also despise refried beans. Guess what? I loved them in these burritos. If you want your kids to eat some veggies and healthy protein, make these for them. I liked these so much that we're making them again for dinner this week. The only bad part about this dish was I ate DOUBLE what I supposed to eat. Oops. I couldn't resist. Friday: Roast Chicken with Zucchini, Carrots, and Onions If I hadn't had to remake the chicken and sauce, this meal would have been super simple. Unfortunately, having a little too much fun on Wednesday night caused me to forget that the chicken and sauce were cooling on the counter. Even though, I had to do double the work and spend double the money, I enjoyed this meal. I felt really healthy eating it and the recipe included cooking the veggies my favorite way - roasting them.
