Hello & welcome!
My name is Christine Elise McCarthy. Some of you might know me as the actress I have been for twenty-five 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 will be devoted to food pornography – whether it be food I make myself or food I order at restaurants. Generally – I try to eat economically (gourmet doesn’t have to mean expensive!) and with some deference toward healthiness and, increasingly, toward being vegan. I am vegetarian (I gave up meat in the late 1980’s) and I like to make as much of my meals from scratch as possible. I used to make meat things for my carnivorous boyfriend – so some stuff like that might show up (from the past) AND lots of my vegan dishes use vegan meat & that can easily be substituted with real meat – if that’s your bag – though I sincerely hope you will experiment with the vegan versions. 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.
HERE is a link to my Pinterest account so you can see all the recipes etc that I have posted collected in a condensed format – with images. See something you like? Simply click it & it will lead you back to the recipe on this site.
