McBride, who loves to entertain and cook, shared her healthy recipes, menu ideas and décor inspiration in “Around the Table.”
“I just love to cook and entertain people,” McBride told Florida Today. “I think a lot of people are intimidated to have people in their homes and entertain because they think it is overwhelming.
“Things don’t have to be perfect. I wanted to take the intimidation out of it and show people a simple way to entertain with easy recipes and ideas.”
Martina even features themed party ideas in Around the Table, including “Red, White and Blue Backyard Cookout,” “Retro Valentine’s Day Supper Club” and “Mistletoe and Martinis.”
McBride, whose latest album, Everlasting, is a collection of cover songs from soul and R&B, enjoys being creative, sharing her music and her cooking inspiration with her fans on social media.
“I think that brings you closer to your fans and they get to see more of the real you,” said Martina. “They learn more about you directly than they ever could by seeing you in an interview, and they get to know more about your personal life.”
