Martha's American Food...Or Everyone else's sweat and tears?

So I am torn. Today Barnes and Nobles offered the cookbook Martha's American Food for $12.99 with any purchase. That is a $40.00 book. I love to cook and I love to entertain but I have to question buying an American cookbook, or any for that matter from Martha Stewart. I love all Martha Stewart products, but as an individual she leaves a bad taste in my mouth. She is an entertainer and she is a crafter, all things I relate to but she is not a chef. It is all of her staff who create those books, so I wonder really are these recipes genuine, soulful and from the heart? I mean a forty dollar cookbook would be better served from Julia Child, Paula Deen, or Gordon Ramsey. Not Martha Stewart. Ugh.

She is not the nicest person in the world. Her past actions are questionable and I am not referring to her prison history.  When friends and acquaintances call me Martha Stewart, I tend to want to correct them. I enjoy being a Jackie-of-all trades but seriously the only genuine thing that Martha did was stamp her label on it before all the us other ladies had the ability to be the public eye.

Well at $12.99, I decided not to pass up the offer. I'll let you know what I decide on some of those recipes in time.
