Watch: How To Make Martha Stewart's Perfect Spring Dinner



If you're like us, you're all about delicious dining…but not much of a wiz in the kitchen. But, just because you can't be Martha Stewart, it doesn't mean you can't learn from the domestic diva. To step up our feeble cooking game, we linked up with Shira Bocar, deputy food editor at Whole Living Magazine and went inside Martha's crazy-spectacular test kitchen (like truly, insanely cool).
And man were we glad we skipped breakfast—Bocar planned the perfect spring dinner menu complete, of course, with an addictive seasonal cocktail. Sure, we may not have taken the culinary reins, but one afternoon of drizzling, stirring, and (obvs) tasting later, we knew how to make a delectable goat cheese appetizer, vegetable garden linguine, and a dessert that won't put you (too far) over that food-coma edge. Surprisingly, we think we can make the whole meal in our own kitchen. Like, actually. Check out the video (and the recipes in the links above) and see why us + Martha Stewart's team + a lot a little bit of bourbon = a good thing.
