12 Jun Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Milkshake Edition

(Are the presence of cupcakes in the image coupled with the title confusing you? Not to worry; things will become clear in the next section.)   I am terribly sorry, my darlings, if this week’s edition brings a hoard of boys to your yard that you then have difficulty getting rid of. I recommend hiring them to do some gardening or perhaps help you assemble some IKEA furniture.   I am also terribly sorry for…

05 Jun Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Southern Edition

Considering the flooding plights of my home state in recent weeks I’ve decided to make this week Southern-themed, only concentrating on the gastronomic delights south of the Mason-Dixon line rather than the embarrassing politics.   Shall we?   To consume and imbibe   Obviously we need to know how to make the Perfect Buttermilk Biscuits that we’ll eat alongside our less traditional versions of southern dishes such as Gouda Grits with Smoky Brown Butter Shrimp and Cornbread Waffles with Chili…

29 May Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Distraction Edition

I won’t lie to you, my darlings, it has been rough around Central Texas lately. We’ve gone from a historic drought to flooding which is good times for absolutely no one unless they are secretly half-man and half-fish like Old Gregg. As most of us are sadly lacking in both gills and amazing seaweed coifs, I thought I might distract us with some things both comforting and maybe even a little ridiculous. We almost all have a little…

22 May Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Early Summer Edition

If you haven’t picked up on it by now, I generally theme these things based on what is going on in my little patch of Earth, my darlings, and woe unto you who live in a different state or country or hemisphere. I am terribly sorry; it’s just that humans are horrible selfish creatures and I happen to be one until I eventually evolve into my final form of generally repurposed atoms.   Hoping to…

15 May Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Rainy Day Edition

All of our April showers rescheduled themselves for May it seems, my darlings, at least here in the Lone Star State where I live, so I thought I’d use this weather as an excuse to find for us all the things we enjoy most when curled up on the couch with water falling from the sky and streaming down our windows.   Shall we?   To consume and imbibe   When it’s rainy I always…

10 May Blueberry Cinnamon Roll Muffins

You don’t have to know me all that well to know that I have an insatiable  sweet tooth–heck, you needn’t read this blog very long to find that out. So, you can probably guess why I love breakfast. Breakfast is, afterall, oftentimes just an excuse to eat dessert really early. I mean, pancakes, waffles, syrup on everything, even sweet rolls, cinnamon rolls, and even muffins are pretty much just one big sweet after the other….

08 May Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Mother’s Day Edition

I hope, my darlings, that you did not read that title and panic because you completely forgot about Mother’s Day, or you didn’t get sad because your mother isn’t really around for one reason or another. For the former I suggest that you call her or send a belated card or a nice gift; it is never too late to do something nice for someone you love.   For the latter I suggest you find…

05 May Chocolate Stout Cake Doughnuts

  There is little doubt the last six months I have spent working in a professional pastry kitchen has altered my approach to creating recipes. Not only is a balanced recipe always a goal, but so is taking into consideration all aspects of a dish, including texture. Most of the time we do this without a second thought–a few chopped peanuts in a crisp glaze on a soft cake doughnut is nothing new.   Bitter…

01 May Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Mayday Edition

No, my darlings, no aircraft are spiraling out of control here because this is a sexy food and lifestyle blog, not a flight simulator, but I try to keep my titles succinct and I had nothing better for the combination of Cinco de Mayo and May the Fourth that is imminently upon us.   If you do have something oh-so-much-more clever, do tell in the comments.   Otherwise, shall we?   To consume and imbibe…

25 Apr Fruity Pebble Crunch Cake

  So, my blog just turned five years old. (And I’m about to turn twenty-nine years old in six days.) But where have I been? Where has Chasing Delicious been?   My friends have always called me a free spirit. “What is Russell up to these days?” “Where is that kid?” Most answers end with, “who knows!” There are so many experiences to be had, so many sights to see, and so much to learn. So…
