Hey there, I'm Christina

Welcome to Addicted to Dates and thank you so much for being here.

I'm the recipe developer, food photographer, and content creator behind everything you see here on the blog (which happens to be mostly dessert recipes, yay!). I also have a background in Culinary Arts.

I first adopted a plant-based diet in 2015, and immediately began experimenting with recipes and creating veganized versions of my favorite dishes. With my culinary background, it is my goal to use my training and experience to create the best possible vegan recipes for you to enjoy.

What kind of recipes will I find here?

You find everything from decadent vegan cakes, to traditional desserts and classics like Tiramisu and Panna Cotta made vegan.

All of my recipes are made using vegan-friendly ingredients and there are lots of gluten-free options here too.

Oh, and if cheesecake is your thing, I have a fast-growing repertoire of delicious vegan cheesecake recipes to choose from!

FAQs

Are all the recipes here vegan?

Yes! All the recipes that I share are 100% vegan, as my number 1 passion is to show that all recipes can be created using plant-based ingredients.

Food is an incredible way to bring people together. I encourage you to share your creations with as many friends, family members, and work colleagues as possible, and help show everyone how amazing vegan food is!

Where did you learn to develop recipes?

I have a BA in Culinary Arts from CIT (known as MTU these days).

Where are you from?

I was born and raised in County Kerry, Ireland, but am currently based in Spain.

What's with the name, Addicted to Dates?

When I first went vegan, I found myself trying so many different foods that in the past I would overlook. I was fascinated by how versatile the humble date is. I used dates to form the base of my very first vegan brownie recipe, and I’ve been hooked ever since!

P.S. If dates aren’t really your thing, don’t worry! There are desserts sweetened with lots of different ingredients here on the blog, I've got you covered 🙂
