Hi there! I’m Linda Jo Martin, a writer, dog-owner and (gasp) senior citizen!! … living in the far-northern hills of Northern California, about twenty miles south of the Oregon border. I’m in the Klamath River Valley.I switched to a vegetarian diet when I was only seventeen. I stuck with it most of my life with a few steps back due to pressures from men in my life. I always quickly reverted to my vegetarian ways. I love vegetarian food.
In 2012 I made the switch to vegan food, and love that even more. I feel so much healthier without dairy food in my life.
My intention is to write about vegan food, herbs, kitchens, and philosophy on this blog. I’ve had a long-term interest in herbs and their uses. It started when I was twenty and enrolled in a herb class which took place in Jeanne Rose’s kitchen near the Haight Ashbury district of San Francisco.
Since this blog is a re-issue of my original Country Kitchen Pantry blog, which was deleted in December 2012, I’ll also be posting some of my older articles from time to time.
When I’m not cooking, eating, or obsessing about food, I’m usually found in the corner of my bedroom typing away at some project – a web page, novel, or blog. I write a lot.
I also take walks, visit friends downtown, and talk politics and philosophy with a very nice man who lives with me. Fortunately we agree on almost everything, politically and spiritually, at least. That makes life so much easier.
About MeHi there! I'm Linda Jo Martin, a writer living in Northern California. I became a vegetarian at the age of 17 many long years ago, and switched to vegan in 2012. I love healthy food and writing. This blog combines those two interests.
