The Ryan Table

Welcome to the Ryan Table!

So glad you are here. I’m Jenny. I believe that good food opens hearts, stimulates conversation, and creates memories. I know the table is the most powerful tool families have in their homes for building strong foundations, lasting friendships, and enduring traditions.

About Jenny

For starters, I love my family of seven. We have a lot of fun at the table. We love to give toasts, sing songs, and we try hard to use good manners, but sometimes silliness trumps. I don’t know when I discovered that I loved cooking. It was after I was married, and after I had kids. At some point I wasn’t just making food, I was discovering food.  I do know I have loved hosting and making others feel welcome for longer than I can remember. My mom loves to tell stories of how I always played hostess when friends came over. I guess it is hard-wired into me. I am thrilled to host you here at The Ryan Table. Thanks for joining us.

It doesn’t matter if you love to cook or hate to cook, everyone has to eat, and someone has to make the food.

Here at The Ryan Table you will find inspiration for your table. Cooking wonderful food isn’t difficult or complicated, but it is important, and delicious.

I post tips, tricks, recipes, and ideas that will get anyone out of a cooking slump, get beginners started, and boost up seasoned makers of good food.

 It doesn’t have to be perfect to be wonderful. 

So sit down for a meal, invite a friend over to share your dinner, try something new. Make food, make memories, and have a lovely time doing it.
