The 12 Best Things to Do in Florence, Italy

They don’t call Florence “The Walking City” for nothing. You can get to everything on foot and you could see the whole city in a day.

World's Best Chocolate Chip Cookies (Whatever's in the Pantry Version)

When I got it in my head that I wanted to make some cookies, I decided I wanted to really go for it. I didn't google the easiest or quickest recipes, but instead found myself in an internet hole of "world's best," "ultimate," "perfect," ultra complex recipes. 

I hit a goldmine when I found Serious Eats' Food Lab article from 2013. The in-depth article explores the science behind the cookie. The author did an incredible amount of work trying to perfect the recipe - maybe too much work.
