Jane is so good!
I love This Week for Dinner in any form…the blog, on Pinterest, on FB, and the PODCAST! Jane makes her guests feel so comfortable and they share such interesting memories and stories with her (and her listeners!). Jane follows tangents with her guests, but they are always interesting and fun. Love, love, LOVE!
I love listening to this podcast because it's like stepping into a friends kitchen and catching up. Casual, easy to listen to and entertaining!
Enjoying the personable back-and-forth banter between Jane and her guests. Feels like I’m listening to some old friends or a Gilmore Girls episode! Looking forward to more interviews!
