Vegan. Activist. Writer. Cook.
Introduction

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.
