On Tuesday, Rachel Maddow went on Martha Stewart's show. The matter before them: croqueembouche, a pyramid of pastry puffs dipped in scalding hot caramel (see Martha's recipe here).
"It's hard to talk Afghanistan while you're making a croqueembouche," Stewart said thoughtfully. Nevertheless the two women attempt it, as Rachel Maddow handles scalding caramel and talks troops levels and the President's plan for Afghanistan.
The last time Maddow was on Stewart's show, Maddow shared her election night cocktail recipe.
