Jane Fonda’s Smoothie

Like a small fussy child, there is absolutely NO WAY I would eat this bowlful of fruit if it was put in front of me.   But mushed up into a smoothie I can handle it.  Why is this?  I have no idea.  Maybe because it feels a bit like having a milkshake for breakfast? […]

Jane Fonda’s Very Berry Waffles

Hot on the heels of Vincent Price’s Waffles are Jane’s.  Now, I have never heard of putting fruit IN waffles, but that’s the way Jane has them, so why not? I’ve been looking after Ringo, the dog from number 14, while Chloë and D-Fran have been in Paris and I have loved every minute.  Ringo […]

Jane Fonda’s Spring Vegetable Sauté

It was almost dark when I got home from work this evening, so Spring, it definitely is not. Autumn seems to have descended upon London this week, and along with it a teenager-style attitude to cooking which effectively is this: “I can’t be bothered to cook when I get in”. We all feel like that […]

Jane Fonda’s Vegit With Cottage Cheese

Have you ever left something important on a bus?  I once got all the way up to my fourth floor flat late on a very rainy evening, and realised the moment I closed the door that I’d left a 6 pack of cold beer on the bus.  Oof.  Tonight I realised the moment I stepped […]

Peter Fonda’s Breakfast Smoothie

I’ve had a couple of these for breakfasts during Jane Fonda month so far… I know that Jane loves a smoothie, and her brother’s version has had to stand in for the one she demonstrates in her video about breakfasts, as I did not have any PROTEIN POWDER around the place… But I do now! […]

Jane Fonda’s Spaghetti in Spicy Peanut Sauce

I love Mondays.  I never go out on a Monday evening.  For me, it’s a night when I cook something nice to eat, and go to bed really, really early.  Tonight was no exception.  I made some of Jane’s spaghetti and I’m about to turn in – it’s 9.30pm. This recipe sounds a bit odd, […]

Jane Fonda’s Salmon With Corn Sauce

I’ve done it my friends! I have done the Jane Fonda Workout! It was excellent fun.  I loved it!  Mind you, I was quite amazed at how flexible La Fonda was, and by contrast how feeble I was.  She is AMAZEBALLS in the workout video and can get her leg right up to her ear. […]

Jane Fonda’s Apple-Raisin Oatmeal

I have a day off work today to do some editing on the Columbo book.  As I’d heard Jane mention in her YouTube video about breakfasts that oats were good for the brain I decided to make myself some of her Apple-Raisin Oatmeal for breakfast.   In fact, Jane’s headnote to this recipe reinforces her […]

Jane Fonda’s Granola

I made a batch of this to kick off my month of living like Jane Fonda – more about this coming soon….  It produced 2 x 1 litre Kilner jars of granola so lucky Mr Rathbone got one for scoffing on his holiday, and I kept one for myself. Now, this is not a CRUNCHY […]

Jane Fonda’s Tangy Tomato Drink

I have been wanting to make a Jane Fonda recipe ever since I saw this photo, which to my mind is the best movie star cooking photo EVER. and on Sunday, my friend Sanja gave me a gift.  This… which I didn’t even know existed.  Imagine my excitement!  So I have decided that September will […]
