About the author

Angela Johnson

I love to read, daydream, walk outdoors, take photographs, visit with friends, and learn about nature. I'm interested in natural and organic foods and alternative health.

I was born in Missouri, the "Show-Me" state, so although I'm open to new ideas, I'm also skeptical and don't believe everything I read. I've lived in the states of Missouri, Illinois, Texas, and Tennessee; and also Vancouver Island, British Columbia, and Okinawa, Japan. I've visited a few other states as well, but am not ready to settle down anywhere permanently. I currently live in San Antonio, Texas.

 I've ben interested in cooking since I was a teenager. Growing up in a small town in Illinois, I ate many home-cooked meals and tried out recipes (mostly cookies). Wherever I live or travel, I check out grocery stores for unusual foods, eat at local restaurants, and buy regional cookbooks. I'm also fascinated with learning how people in the past lived, and how they obtained food and prepared it.
