What you’ll need:

  • Baking sheet
  • Parchment paper
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temp
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar (think Sugar in the Raw)
  • 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons packed light or brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • Heaped 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt or table salt
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 pound semi or bittersweet chocolate – chips or flaked/cut up bar (use a serrated knife)

What to do:

Preheat oven 350° F.

In a large bowl, cream the  butter and sugars together.

Beat in egg and vanilla.

Beat in the heaped 1/4 teaspoon of salt and baking soda

Beat in the flour. It should look a little crumbly at this point. If not, add a little bit of flour and mix again.

Fold in the chocolate with a spatula.

Make balls of cookies about 1 1/2 tablespoons in size.

Bake until you see hints of brown on the top (7-12 minutes).

Remove from the oven, let cool, and then smile.

Gotts Burgers 

My friend Cara Mia and I went out to take pictures the other night and ended up on the Embarcadero. After strolling by the Ferry Building, we decided we wanted burgers. Fortunately for us, Gotts is located in the Ferry Building and was open. I was skeptical at first, but after looking on the menu, I’m sold. They use quality products and offer up some great burgs.

Check out the menu here – gotts.com.

Vote Yes on Prop C

If you like chicken and are bad at making decisions, then Proposition Chicken on Market Street in San Francisco is your place. This is because there are but three options on the menu and they are all chicken: fried, flipped, or fake. Once you overcome that decision, you just need to pick a delivery system: salad, sandwich, or entree and then it’s mouth party time. As an added bonus, they have sides. And they are good sides. We would suggest the brown sugar brussels sprouts. They are bomb.
