On Sunday, March 1, the first ever Vegan Street Fair was held on the streets of North Hollywood. Rain, even hail, couldn't keep the almost 10,000 hungry fair goers from hitting the streets to get tastes of vegan foods from over 40 different food vendors. C...
In honor of National Clam Chowder Day I thought I would share my recipe for a truly "Happy Clam" Chowder which is featured in Going Vegan , which I co-wrote with Gerrie Lynn Adams. No clams were harmed in the making of this chowder, yet this hearty soup is...

Hello. I am Joni Marie Newman, self appointed QUEEN OF VEGGIE BURGERS!
I am just a regular gal who loves to cook...ESPECIALLY for friends and family. Self taught, and still learning, I spend most of my spare time in the kitchen.
When I am not in the kitchen, I really enjoy knitting, painting, wasting endless hours on the internet, walking with my husband and the girls, listening to podcasts, traveling, reading, and most of the other stuff regular gals enjoy.
I am currently residing in Long Beach, California, with my two sweet girls (Maxine and Annie) and my extremely delicious husband.
I create delicious and cruelty free delicacies for the world to enjoy. Through my food, I hope to help people to understand that it is not necessary to murder or torture another living creature in order to have a tasty supper.
