Stepping off the set of her PBS series "Martha Stewart's Cooking School," Martha Stewart graced the cover of New You's Spring 2013 issue.

After showing off her glowing skin for the Fadil Barisha-shot spread, the 71-year-old food and lifestyle guru chatted about seeking Mr. Right online and returning to her old life since being convicted in 2004.

Check out a few highlights from Miss Stewart's interview below. For more, be sure to visit New You!

On getting back into dating:
"I'm always looking. Are you kidding? All women are always looking."

On maintaining her perfect health:
"Each decade has specific requirements. It's imperative to have a good diet that keeps you healthy. Maintaining a tiny waist is very important factor in successful aging. In your forties, you should start thinking about the rest of your life. By your fifties, you should have a good doctor and wellness routine set up."

On life post her prison days:
"Rebuilding is a lot harder than building. I've learned that. You have to approach something new as a build-on to what you've already done. There is only one time around the track. And you are on that track the minute you're born."

On the one regret:
"[Just] that I haven't had more children. But my daughter has two babies now, so the family is growing."
