So please consider the following core areas of Martha greatness. Can these apply to your life? I think so!

- Variety – Martha always offers new recipe ideas, which is great for us because no one, no matter how busy they are, should miss out on a diet full of variety. We all deserve excitement and adventure in the kitchen, even if it’s a quick meal with a few choice ingredients.
- Cleanliness – Having a clean house means that your family will benefit from a structured environment with fewer germs. IMHO, cleanliness = peace of mind.
- Quick steps – Martha offers lots of shortcuts to make life easier – from kitchen shortcuts to party tips, the secret to a working mom’s success is finding shortcuts and efficiencies.
