Jane's Cook Book
Herewith, a collection of reliable recipes that have fooled a few people into thinking I know my way around in a kitchen
From The Archive
I’ve been writing for years. Here are some of my favourite pieces. I hope you enjoy them!
Jane's Junk Drawer
Useful, interesting … mysterious! A haphazard trove of curiosities, ideas, and stuff too good to throw away.
BIRD BATH LIFEGUARD
One day, I will build a wall with sofa cushions and pillows on the living room floor.
The wall will be situated close to a floor-to-ceiling window. Taking inspiration from ancient castles, this mound of upholstery will be crenellated to provide opportunities for concealment. You may not know it, but you know what crenellation is; they’re the gaps at the top of a castle where archers could hide as they rained down arrows on their attackers. Yes, crenellation will be a necessary feature of the pile of pillows.

Hi! I'm Jane!
I’m a Canadian journalist. My professional life has included radio, TV, and film. My writing has appeared in a variety of publications in Canada and the US but I’m best known for my work as a columnist for Canada’s National Post. I’m working on a book but we’ll both be a lot older by the time I finish it … if I ever finish it. As for the five pounds I gained during the pandemic, those are probably here for the duration. (Okay, so it’s closer to ten pounds ….)
