Valentine’s Brunch, Creatures, and Fondue

You know, I think my favorite brunch spot in Ann Arbor is Nick’s. The whole experience is usually quite solid – their menu offers both brunch favorites (Western Omelet or Blueberry Pancakes) as well as some unique dishes (Bacon Waffle or Sweetie Pie Skillet layered with sweet potato tots) that always satisfy, the prices are … Continue reading

This past Labor Day Weekend, we finally got around to doing something we’ve been talking about doing all summer – making some BBQ in the smoker.
