Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg met on her cooking show in 2008
The famous duo first met back in 2008 when Snoop joined Stewart to make mashed potatoes on her cooking show, The Martha Stewart Show. The rapper returned the next year to make brownies, and the new friends joked about "the most important part" of that recipe.
Since their cooking and baking days on Stewart's show, the pair have gone on to work together as roasters on Comedy Central's 2015 Justin Bieber Roast, co-hosts of the 2021 and 2022 Puppy Bowls and costars in various Sketchers commercials. They've also teamed up to co-host a VH1 celebrity cooking show, Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party, and judge a Halloween food competition, Snoop and Martha's Very Tasty Halloween.
"When you work with someone like Snoop, it's like having a sidekick. How great it is," Stewart once told PEOPLE. "That's why all the comedians have sidekicks and bands because it loosens them up and lets them be freer. Snoop is my freedom."
