A great book not to be missed. Lisa Genova does it again. Her latest about Huntington's is not light but is certainly thought-provoking... a perfect book for the beach, pool or on the plane headed to your next destination. 
Book Review :: Inside the O'Briens - Image via Jessica Moseley Gordon I was first introduced to Lisa Genova a few years ago when I read Still Alice. I was riveted from the first page.  We are immediately introduced to Alice, the protagonist who is diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's. Here we are given a very personal glimpse into the Alice's world and that of her loved ones. It's a frightening disease and as I read I questioned my o...

My most recent contribution to Yankee Magazine
Love New England for its farms, landscapes, antique homes, stone walls, winding roads, and mature trees? Plan a visit to charming Easton, Connecticut.

There's nothing like a good pb+j when the mood strikes. Whether you're partial to grape jelly or strawberry preserves, the combination of the sweet and the salty perfectly satisfies your cravings. This childhood favorite is comforting and nurturing. Whether you're a Welch's jelly purist or Smucker's strawberry fan, there's no right or wrong way to make or eat this classic sandwich. Best of all, it's simple and easy to make. There's no...

Eat chocolate, take naps, drink champagne, be gracious....
Today is my Birthday. I was born on June 1st, many many many years ago. As I rapidly approach the Big Five Oh, I like to celebrate and I like to take some time to be reflective of all the good things that have come my way, all the experiences I've had, as well as all that I've learned. Truth be told, I think the greatest lessons learned have happened within the past 10 years,  most of which took place within the past 5 years - some ev...

As Memorial Day quickly approaches we become Patriotic. We'll celebrate with hints of red, white and blue. But why must we celebrate and enjoy our flag during the summertime in May and July? Why can't we celebrate her throughout the year? I'm partial to our flag for all that she is and all that she stands for - a symbol of freedom, beauty and strength. She embodies all that we have, all that we are and all that we can be.  She is ...

A Most Delicious Salad Sauce - Recipe from Old Sturbridge Village. Image property of The Entertaining House/Jessica Gordon Ryan It's easy to understand why good recipes can stand the test of time - why they're passed on from generation to generation. It's also easy to see how many modern recipes take their roots and influences from older recipes.  When I went to participate in my Colonial Dinner at Old Sturbridge Village last week I...

Despite our greatest intentions we're often looking to fill our long summer days... Some ideas for families and for adults
Summer is here, finally! And despite the long and lazy days they're supposed to be, our lives are still full. We're still rushing to get to work and camp and wherever else life takes us. Sometimes when we do slow down, despite all that surrounds us, we're often looking for something to do. Sometimes we need to shake it up a little and break out of our ruts. I find that summer gets harder as the children get older. Not only do they ne...

The Japanese art of Kintsukuroi repairs broken pottery with seams of gold. it is in these repairs that the brokenness makes the object even more beautiful than it was before. The art of  Kintsukuroi is a long and difficult process, but the results are treasured by those around it. Uplifting and hopeful, this artform is an inspiring metaphor for dealing with the times we feel broken in life. It is a reminder that we become more beautif...

What's more American than a good ol' juicy burger? Ok, yes, maybe apple pie. But when you think of summertime food and barbeques and parties, whether at the pool, lake, beach or home, the hamburger reigns King. When invited to parties I always offer to bring something whether a side, salad, dessert or even a signature beverage. If we are invited to family events I like to bring something that everyone - both adults and children - will ...

Brimfield Antique Show and Flea Market. Image property of The Entertaining House/Jessica Gordon Ryan How to find new uses for old things.  It's that time of year - antique show and flea market season. As many of you know I was at Brimfield last week - the largest antiques and flea market in the country.  These events are fun and some, like Brimfield, are quite exhausting as there is just so much to see and sort through. The trick ...
