Today is National Cheeseburger Day and we have been planning for this day since for quite a while in anticipation of today’s list. So many burgers were consumed that we decided to break the list apart in two categories.

We know where to find saganakiand a big wheel of cheese set on fire much to out amazement, but where are the sweets? Continue reading →
