Lovers of fashion and cookies unite, for Feb. 17 will feature a special cookie at a Davenport bakery.

Meet Cookie Couture, an aptly named specialty flavor from Cookies & Dreams in downtown Davenport. They recently sent the cookie to be featured at New York Fashion Week and it's perfect for the occasion.

According to the bakery's Instagram post, Cookie Couture is a white chocolate & ruby chocolate (more on that flavor in a second) sugar cookie. The inside of the cookie features a fresh raspberry chambord cheesecake filling. The topping? Sprinkles of 24k edible gold leaf and drizzles of milk & white chocolate. As the post says the cookie is "hand made for the runway".

Ruby chocolate is rare and gets its unique pink color from a special fermentation process. It tastes very creamy and tangy on its own, with a nod to raspberries, which is what makes raspberries a complementary flavor profile for it. The post says that the ruby cocoa beans are heavily influenced by things like weather, soil, and their environment, like wine is.

DIY McRib

Everyone is rejoicing that the McRib is back! You can hear the chanting from down the block. Everyone is washing their hands a little bit more due to the bbq sauce residue and it's wonderful.

All is right with the world.

But it isn't always like this. The McRib will leave soon and we'll have to settle for a McChicken or a Double Quarter Pounder like a peasant. Life isn't fair. We know this.

However, my cousin Steve has figured out a way to beat the system.

He's gotten his hands dirty and experimented so we don't have to. He has perfected the DIY McRib!
