As Hurricane Florence made landfall in the Carolinas, I contacted Cook for Good’s Linda Watson and urged her to stay safe. Her My Favorite People, My Favorite Recipes guest post could wait for a better time. Linda came through anyway, despite rising flood waters, her local environmental advisory board meeting and hosting a screening of Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 11/19. So you can see why I’m Linda’s fan. I’ve been a fan since we met, bonded over the power of fundamental home cooking and I learned about Cook For Good. On her website, in videos, books and classes, Linda combines free vegan, organic recipes with basic, long-lost home economics skills. The result? “Save money, eat well, make a difference.“ She’s the evangelist of empowering everyone to cook for good. I’m super-proud of her and super-proud to share her guest post.
