Hello & welcome!
Check out my vegan cooking channel on Youtube! www.VideoVegan.com
My name is Christine Elise McCarthy. Some of you might know me as the actress I have been for 30 years (My IMDB Page) – but those of you who know me personally or through my Facebook page, Instagram, Pinterest or Twitter know that I am an avid cook, photographer and eater. This site was initially devoted to food pornography – whether it was food I made myself or food I ordered at restaurants. Generally – I try to eat economically (gourmet doesn’t have to mean expensive!) and with some deference toward healthiness but my diet inevitably evolved from a pescetarian-vegetarian to a vegan one. I now adhere to a plant-based diet (I gave up meat in the late 1980’s – seafood & dairy & eggs were given up more recently) and I like to make as much of my meals from scratch as possible. Many years ago – I made a few meat things for my carnivorous ex-boyfriend – so some stuff like that might show up (from the past). Please know – there are dozens, if not hundreds, of vegetarian dishes from the earlier years here but the majority can be made vegan by simply using vegan dairy products & egg replacers. Either way – do not be intimidated to try some of the things you see here. Typically – the dishes here are described fancifully and, I hope, photographed lushly – but they are easier to afford and to manifest than you might imagine. Check out my Youtube channel to watch me make them & see how easily most of them really are – www.VideoVegan.com
