It’s It…It really is!

{Delicious It’s It Ice Cream Cookies at Waterbar}

I discovered the most perfect dessert during my first visit ever to San Francisco earlier this month.  Imagine this: a scoop of creamy ice cream sandwiched between two fresh, warm, home-made oatmeal cookies. And if that isn’t enough to make your mouth water, the whole thing is then dipped in chocolate.

This, my friends, is called an “It’s It”.  I was lucky enough to try a gourmet version at Waterbar, a great restaurant in the Embarcadero, right by the Bay Bridge – but I heard they are also sold in super markets, delis, and that it’s common for people to make their own versions at home!

I can’t understand why this treat hasn’t made its way over to the east coast yet.  I’m going to be testing my homemade It’s It-making abilities soon. If anything so that I’m not required to fly cross-country to satisfy this craving!

Lollapalooza 2009

Apparently nothing attracts a huge crowd to Chicago like Lollapalooza, an annual weekend-long music festival featuring artists in many different genres including rock, hip hop, pop, punk, dance, etc. This past August was my first year attending the festival. I’ll leave you with some visuals…..(note to self: I need to get better at posting, it’s been two months since Lolla already!)
