About Cooking Stoned

Hi, I’m Jerry James Stone and welcome to my food blog.

My recipes are vegetarian, just like me. Some are even vegan. I like to keep things pretty simple, using just a few ingredients. So, you'll be cooking in no time.

If you're wondering if I am really stoned... well, I'll never tell.
