If You Can’t Stand the Heat, Get Out of the Kitchen…


It’s been a hot week over here at DBA HQ. And when I say “hot” I mean, it’s been so hot that when I left my wet garden crocs outside to dry, they shrunk. Yes, it’s so hot, my rubbery shoes actually shrunk. I’m actually surprised that they didn’t just melt. Living in the Southeast,…

The Lesser of Two Evils


It’s summertime in the sunny South and basically for those of us living in this inferno, it means sweating your ass off until sometime in October. I’m not kidding. Today, temperatures here in North Carolina reached close to the 100 degree mark. And it’s still June. The rest of the week doesn’t look any better,…

Rub a Dub Dub, Three Badasses in a Tub (of spices)

On top of ice cream getting a whole month of national recognition, there’s…

“Badass, you got some ‘splainin’ to do!”


Yeah, I know. I suck. I’ve kind of left the blog high and dry for the first half of the year. To the 13.25 people that follow along, please accept my apologies. Hell, it’s taken me two weeks to finish this post. In my defense, it’s actually been a crazy roller coaster of a 6 months, jam-packed with all sorts…

Ding Dong, the Freakin’ Flu is GONE!


Yaaay!!!! After a week of coughing, sneezing and general malaise, I’m happy to report that The G-Man is on the mend! I’m thrilled on many levels. I love the guy, but honestly, if we were cooped up together for one more day, the outcome may have ended up as an idea for a future episode…
