Knicks Brunch Burgers with Balsamic Onion Marmalade

Thursday, August 6, 200937 Comments

There’s a good, old-fashioned bar and grill in our neighborhood that Mr. SGCC and I like to frequent.  It’s called Knick’s Tavern & Grill. The food is good, the beer is cold and you can watch TV while you eat. Just like being at home!  Knick’s menu is pretty …

Sunday, June 8, 200841 Comments

I think I’ve mentioned once or twice that Mr. SGCC is a card carrying, dyed-in-the-wool carnivore. In fact, I’ve actually referred to him as a caveman (in the nicest possible way, of course) in the past. He not only loves meat, he lives for it! …
