I Don't Want The Whole World...

A jelly filled donut though sounds wonderful!

Welcome to my blog/site that you somehow stumbled upon.  I should introduce myself though, my name is Catherine Mae and just recent I had a birthday that changed my age from twenty to twenty ONE. Now that I am old should I get a walker or a cane? (That's a little of my humor for you just incase you wanted to know how gosh darn funny I am!)  Back to the matter of this post, I am here to give you the information about me that you are most likely curious about.  So lets get started with a few non-personal facts:

I currently live in the wonderful grey city of Seattle which is located in Washington.  The weather may be grey 80% of the time but that just means home grown herbs are more delicious!  I started out cooking by being in the kitchen with my mother and helping at a young age, anywhere to measuring rice to put in the rice cooker or tearing the husk off corn, I was always in the background helping.  Around the age of 14 I started taking over making dinner for the family with some help from my parents, although they were mainly Hamburger Helpers and an easy Chili recipe, that jump started me though to look through recipes that my grandmother made/edited and to try them out. As I got older I was able to look online for recipes with new things that I never tried before, or a combination that I would never of thought of.  Cooking has brought me into experimenting and getting my parents, who are more than likely to have a plain hamburger, to try something that isn't only flavored with salt and pepper.

How I came up with the name The Dashing Chic, is for the fact that when I cook sometimes I will throw in a dash of oregano, or red pepper flakes.  I never measure out spices or herbs I always do dashes and it came to me that I should be The Dashing Chic, not because I am so darn dashing, but for my love to dash spices!

I have become a grown woman but along the way my taste have change which is why I wanted to start a blog to share some recipes that I have loved over the years of cooking.  You will sometimes get some insight into my life on here, but I will always be glad to share a recipe to anyone who wants one.  I hope to hear from you guys in the future for I have big plans for this site!

With Grilled Love,

Catherine Mae, The Dashing Chic


  1. Catherine, it's always nice to find a young woman who is into cooking. I've been cooking since I was about four. Isn't it fun?! I look forward to visiting your blog and seeing what you're up to!
