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 ...

Map of Brimfield Courtesy Yankee Magazine I'm headed to Brimfield, Massachusetts, this afternoon. Brimfield is home to the largest antiques and flea market in the country. Yankee Magazine has dubbed it "the mother of all antiques markets." To say it is large or even huge is an understatement. It is colossal. Three times a year, in May, July and September the town of Brimfield is transformed into a massive antiques fair featuring 6,0...

13 Healthy Cinco de Mayo Recipes. Image via Food Network I love Mexican food, but I don't always love how I feel after I eat it. I try to stick with the recipes that call for less cheese and aren't as greasy as those tend to  up feeling like an anchor in your stomach. Really good Mexican food is neither heavy or greasy, but fresh, light and very flavorful. I've found recipes that are lower in carbohydrates, fat and calories while rem...

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...

The Author, center, with her mother and grandmother.  Circa 1970. Property of Jessica Gordon Ryan Mother's Day is one of those Hallmark holidays that evokes every emotion under the sun. We feel badly for those childless women who yearn for their own. Our hearts break for those whose mothers are no longer alive. Those of us with children eagerly await a day of kisses, love, kindness and relaxation. Mother's Day is perhaps more anticipa...

10 Reasons why the tunic is a must for every wardrobe. Image via Show My Your MuMu I happen to adore tunics. I own many of them in all sorts of different styles - long, short, dress, casual. It seems that with each and every year that passes new ones appear in my closet and yet the older ones never get tossed aside -they really are timeless. The definition of tunic is fairly loose - According to Merriam Webster a tunic is: "a loose p...

Three simple items are all you need to make your own reed diffusers. Image property of The Entertaining House. I have a love for all things aromatic - fresh flowers, a newly cut lawn, a crackling fireplace, the ocean, the smell of rain on a warm summer day, my home after it's been professionally cleaned... Smells, like songs, evoke pleasant memories. Some smells - like floral and herbs are instantly relaxing, like  walking into your ...
