Stewart versus Esteves - Throw Down!

American TV personality Martha Stewart is the most famous housekeeper / homemaker in the world . That's what I thought until when mentioning her name in a casual discussion, the person who was not from America said they didn't know her. In case the reader does not know - Ms. Stewart's official Google Plus business page puts her occupation as “Businesswoman”. That is an inadequate or insufficient description. It should say “Phenomenal Businesswoman par Excellence ”. Watched one of her shows one time and she was actually teaching her audience how to clean a dirty greasy frying pan! This woman took the mundane chores of housekeeping and homemaking on a Star Trek journey and boldly went places no woman had ever gone before. To the bank!!!

  • Martha Stewart's net worth at one time was reported at $300 million, per . (Figured that must be an old report. So fished some more.)
  • A 2011 article published by , reported that reported her net worth at $638 million. (That's probably understated too, as of 2015.)

Anyway, getting to my real point - If you're not into baking from scratch like Martha Stewart, are you aware of the wonderful things that can be done with a cake mix? Isabelle Esteves shares her tips on how to enhance a basic cake mix .

(Note: Ms. Esteves unpublished her content. Link is a replacement from
"One Good Thing" by Jill Lee.).

Ms. Stewart teaches you how to make all sorts of wonderful culinary delights on from scratch on her Martha Bakes TV series. But why do that when the family and friends chowing down on my upside down cake won't even notice the difference? Stewart versus Esteves? I'm in the Esteves corner.

HI from Australia over the last few days I actually have seen a few of her shows and I have enjoyed them.

Martha really is the queen of all things homemaking. Such talent she has and I am so glad she shares her ideas with us.

I don't know her too. Maybe because were not in culinary or we are not in America. But since you mention baking... I might love to see her show. I love cakes, I love to bake since when I was in elementary. But culinary is so expensive course so I guess I am not for that thing, but with my mom's cooking lesson I'll be very much fine lol! God bless thank you for the info. I hope she also has a basic teaching when it comes to baking. I bought a small book in baking, but the price of the ingredients is super expensive!
