Recipe Courtesy Kelly McCrary - Pastry Chef

  These cookies are best eaten right out of the oven, but I also enjoy them the next morning accompanied by a cup of hot coffee.

Ingredients

  • 2.5 cups plus 3 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 sticks salted butter (Kerrygold or plugra are my faves)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla (I like Morton basset or Nielsen Massey brands)
  • 1 cup ghiradelli or guittard chocolate chips
  • 1 4oz bar 60% ghirardelli dark chocolate (roughly chopped)

Directions

  1. Mix flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder in bowl; set aside.
  2. In large bowl, using electric mixer, cream butter and sugars until combined. Add eggs and vanilla, mixing til light and fluffy.
  3. Add flour mixture to the butter mixture and blend on low speed until just combined. Add the chocolate chips and chocolate chunks stirring til combined.
  4. Portion dough into 3 ounce cookies (or large scoops) and let rest in fridge overnight.
  5. Pull directly out of refrigerator and bake on silpat at 350F for 14-15 minutes.

Notes

  • (Baking time will vary depending on size of cookies and how hot your oven cooks.) You want to pull cookies out of oven when edges are just starting to brown and center looks slightly underbaked.
  • PS: Meghan adds a touch of Maldon Salt while they are baking.

Every year, we close the office for a couple days and trek up to the mountains to recenter and realign our agency’s goals for the next year. With the addition of a few amazing team members it is a way to get to know everyone a little better – for example, we found out that Angela spends her summers in Rome, Willie won a gold medal in rugby at the Maccabiah Games in Israel, Lynn has a background in fashion design, and Dawn is an NCAA sharpshooter.

Since we’re such a small team, it’s important to recognize that our agency’s growth depends on our individual team’s growth. That’s why we determined our individual strengths and discussed how as a team we can lean on each other. We strive to constantly push each other to make better work or look at things from a different perspective.

We worked with the talented Amanda Gulino from
A Better Monday to develop an itinerary of exercises that would help us connect as a team and build towards our goals. This included diving deep into Honey's vision, mission, values, and much more. Of course, we ended the first day by the lake at sunset presenting our vision boards to each other, which was a highlight of the trip. We shared what drives us, where our hearts lie, and our personal goals. So, it's simple, our why is to empower passion. Empower passion in our clients, in each other, and in our community. Our overall goal of this retreat was to lay a solid foundation as we evolve into our 10th year as a company — we have something very, very exciting in the works. We are bursting at the seams to share it with you this year.

Thank you to our awesome team for showing up fully and doing the work, and to Josh for keeping us fed on ridiculously delicious food. Cheers to the future and making some incredible work for incredible people!

Last week we were invited to celebrate the launch of Blue Diamond’s new Crafted Gourmet Almond line at Canon in East Sacramento.

Chef Brad Checci prepared a fantastic menu complimenting Blue Diamond’s new flavors – Pink Himalayan Salt, Black Truffle, and Garlic, Herb and Olive Oil. Our favorite flavor of the night was the Rosemary and Sea Salt almonds paired with a glass of chardonnay.

Congrats to Blue Diamond on the new line and thanks to Alicia Lund and Canon for hosting this lovely event. Last but not least, shout out to Thistle & Honey for the lovely array of flowers!     [post_date] => 2018-04-08 09:08:02 [post_excerpt] => [post_parent] => 0 [post_status] => publish [post_title] => A Perfect Pair [post_type] => post [slug] => a-perfect-pair [__type:protected] => [_edit_last] => 4 [_thumbnail_id] => 9258 [_yoast_wpseo_content_score] => 30 [is_this_post_a_press_item] => 0 [_is_this_post_a_press_item] => field_57d194812eaa9 [short_header] => 0 [_short_header] => field_59023606f8c0c [exclude_from_reccomended_posts] => 0 [_exclude_from_reccomended_posts] => field_59149ab33728e [video_header] => 0 [_video_header] => field_5ab01b7a3e543 [_yoast_wpseo_primary_category] => 1 [ha_post_views_count] => 589 [_wp_old_date] => 2018-04-07 [post_date_gmt] => 2018-04-08 16:08:02 [comment_status] => closed [ping_status] => closed [post_password] => [post_name] => a-perfect-pair [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2018-04-08 09:08:02 [post_modified_gmt] => 2018-04-08 16:08:02 [post_content_filtered] => [guid] => https://workbyhoney.com/?p=9199 [menu_order] => 0 [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw [status] => publish [image] => )

With Domain Chandon on the left and the quaint town of iconic food and wine on the right, it truly might be heaven. On a recent trip, we knew we needed to make a pit stop, not for Bouchon's nutter butter cookies, but to see a new magical mural gracing the entrance of Yountville. LC Studio Tutto is an art and design team composed of Sofia Lacin and Hennessy Christophel. The duo works collaboratively to create large-scale public art—you might have seen their "Bright Underbelly" shining over Sacramento's downtown farmer's market– infusing spaces with life and identity to encourage a connection between people and their environments. We wanted to know more about the process, here is Meghan's interview with Sofia and Hennessy:
What was the process that brought you to Yountville? We were awarded the Yountville Mural Underpass Project through a national call for artists. We contracted with the Town of Yountville and Caltrans. For this project, we presented three mockups and asked the town to vote for their favorite design - they chose Memory of a Tree. This is a big job, how long have you been working on it and painting it We applied for the project in October of 2015, went through months of design conceptualization and community engagement, and we just completed the month for fabrication (April 20 - May 20). What was your inspiration for Memory of a Tree? We wanted to create a design that was inspired by the Valley Oak, a native species that blanketed the Napa Valley before vineyards were cultivated. Hennessy’s father used to work in the fields of Yountville with his dad, and admired the beauty of the same oaks that we appreciated on our stay in Yountville this past month. An oak’s life can span generations and tie us to the past. In this time, many things are disposable and fleeting. In contrast, I love how enduring the oak is - we are inspired by this symbol of strength through the passing of time. Rich blues and red earth tones of the painting capture the golden light and contrasting soft shadows of the Napa Valley. The tunnel structure provides refuge from the overhead sun, so we wanted the design to integrate cool, layered tones. Tell us some of your favorite moments of being outside and painting this gorgeous piece. Painting in the bright golden 'light' lines over the deep blue hues, Glazing red-iron oxide over the wild flower fields in the painting. Ice-cream delivery at 10am from one of our 'grandpas' over at the Veterans Home down the street. Experiencing a sea of bikes zooming through the tunnel all shouting encouraging remarks, flooding over us like a positive wave. Watching the cliff swallows gracefully dive in and out of their little adobe-like nests under the 29. Engaging in fulfilling daily conversations about art, music, travel, with the residents of Yountville. I had a particularly wonderful talk with an art restorer passing through on his bike from Napa, about restoring the Sistine Chapel. He was an art restorer for years in Italy.          Photos by Stephanie Russo [post_date] => 2017-05-24 20:00:14 [post_excerpt] => [post_parent] => 0 [post_status] => publish [post_title] => Memory of a Tree - The Yountville Mural [post_type] => post [slug] => yountville-mural [__type:protected] => [_edit_last] => 1 [_yoast_wpseo_content_score] => 30 [is_this_post_a_press_item] => 0 [_is_this_post_a_press_item] => field_57d194812eaa9 [short_header] => 0 [_short_header] => field_59023606f8c0c [_yoast_wpseo_primary_category] => 1 [ha_post_views_count] => 1076 [_thumbnail_id] => 7304 [exclude_from_reccomended_posts] => 0 [_exclude_from_reccomended_posts] => field_59149ab33728e [_jd_tweet_this] => no [post_date_gmt] => 2017-05-24 20:00:14 [comment_status] => open [ping_status] => open [post_password] => [post_name] => yountville-mural [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2017-05-24 20:00:14 [post_modified_gmt] => 2017-05-24 20:00:14 [post_content_filtered] => [guid] => http://workbyhoney.com/?p=7300 [menu_order] => 0 [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw [status] => publish [image] => )

What is the perfect martini? Does perfect mean classic? Does it mean shaken? Or could it mean stirred? Solving the mystery of this basic, yet refined cocktail proved to be a larger feat than we initially anticipated. As many know, much controversy exists in regards to one of the most classic cocktails of all time. Dolin Dry Vermouth, Martini Glass, Bitters Bottle, Jigger, Corbin Gin You may be disappointed to know we never settled on a recipe. We did, however, conclude that the perfect martini is imperfect. We all take ours a little different around here: Grady swirls his glass with vermouth instead of dumping it into the mix. Meghan insists on freezing her coupes. Josh makes his with a lemon ribbon. Steph swears by blue-cheese stuffed olives and Rebecca is all for the vodka over gin. Martini Illustration Dolin Dry Vermouth, Martini Glass, Bitters Bottle, Jigger, Corbin Gin, in a shaker First, decide on your spirit - preferably a premium spirit, one that stands superbly on its own. We used Corbin Cash's sweet potato gin, as we are big fans of a) old style gins b) sustainable practices and c) local farmers + purveyors. A little about Corbin Cash: Fifth generation farmers since 1917, Corbin Cash has a complete line of truly farm-to-bottle spirits - rye, vodka, whiskey and more. They use their sweet potatoes to create each bottle and are a 100% vertically integrated operation. Absolutely everything is done, and sustainably so, on their property; even the spring water used in production is recycled back to the farm for irrigation and the spent mash is used as fertilizer or cattle feed. Next: Glassware.  Brace yourself for a pro-tip: chill your glassware. All of it! From there, add bitters to your chilled mixing glass. Next up, the gin. Pour 2.5 oz into your mixing glass, followed by 3/4 oz vermouth. Finally, add ice and stir your mixture for ~ 20 seconds. Simple, right? Garnish as you wish, be it a lemon twist or stuffed olives. Dolin Dry Vermouth, Martini Glass, Bitters Bottle, Jigger, Corbin GinPeeling a lemon One thing is for sure: there are a few pro-tips you can practice in attempt to achieve martini perfection. Below are a list of our in-house cocktail geek's recommended tips.

Josh's Pro Tips

  • I always add ingredients from least-expensive-by-volume to most-expensive-by-volume; that way when I inevitably screw up I can minimize the cost.
  • Do yourself a favor and buy a bar mat—they make for quick cleanup and they're cheap online. They also make great drying mats for dishes and can be rolled up for storage.
  • Stir for ~ 20 seconds. Got an instant read thermometer? Take a look and stop somewhere between 21º F and 27º F (-6ºC and -3ºC).
  • If you're dropping Olives into your martini, toss them (and their brine) into the fridge a couple hours before you start making drinks. Mixed drinks are a tug-of-war between enthalpy and entropy that brings a drink to -6º  below the freezing point of water,  and it's an abomination to the work you've done to toss in 20 or 30 grams of 68º F stuff — that changes the way you taste the drink (the taste of the vermouth in the drink, most dramatically) and the life of the cocktail.
  • On that note - store your gin in the freezer and the Vermouth in the fridge. It's going to give you far more control over dilution (ice melting while it cools) as well as the final temperature of the drink.
  • Freeze everything—serving glasses, mixing glasses, all the booze.
  • Store a few pint glasses (beer glasses) in the freezer, no-one has the cash to throw down for multiple fancy mixing glasses and you're usually making a few drinks in an evening. Use the mixing glass to impress your guests, and use the pint glass for your own drink while they're chatting in the other room. Plus it's always good to have a few pint glasses chilled for beer or seltzer water, it's a nice touch.

Turk Pans | $179 Where to buy it: Kaufmann Mercantile Why we love it: Turk pans are legit. They're forged in Germany by a company that makes shovels. Kaufmann Mercantile seems to be one of the few places you can find these things in the states or without some pretty high over-seas VAT. 2. French Salami Sampler | $40 Where to buy it: Olympia Provisions Why we love it: The Tour de France of the salami world? Say no more. You can also treat your loved ones to the gift that keeps on giving: the salami of the month club. 3. Black Diamond Storm Headlamp | $34.83 Where to buy it: R.E.I Why we love it: We're still trying to figure this one out. What we do know, is that we receive excellent feedback from 9/10 recipients (e.g. "This was my most used gift!" And, "I wear this thing 24/7!") 4. California "Stately" Serving Board | $50-$65 Where to buy it: Newton Booth Builds | Midtown Farmer's Market – 12/17 | 8th Annual Handmade Holidays market at Beatnik Studios – 12/18 Why we love it: Locally made, downright beautiful and let's face it: who doesn't love receiving a good cheese board? 5. Vignalta Herbed Salt | $8.99 Where to buy it: Corti Brothers Why we love it: Did your significant other ask for a trip to Italy this Christmas? Buy them this herbed salt, instead! For less than $10, the combination of Sicilian sea salt and Italian herbs is the next best thing. 6. Death and Co. | $26 Where to buy it: Amazon Why we love it: With over 500 recipes, this is one of the absolute best cocktail books. It explains the details of cocktail technique, ingredients, and recipes. Plus, it makes for a beautiful statement piece on your bar cart. 1. Harney & Sons Tea | $8.50 Where to buy it: Harney & Sons Why we love it: The tastiest, all-organic, loose-leaf with packaging so cute, you'll want to reuse the tins as containers for your herbs, cotton balls, and anything else you can think of. 2. The Chicago Pebble Pouch | $32-$46 Where to buy it: Studio Fig Why we love it: This Sacramento graphic, interior, and fashion designer creates only the most beautiful pieces. We're especially big fans of these coin purses and wallets! (Husbands: hint hint.) 3. Tapestry Wood Weaving Loom Kit | $65 Where to buy it: Etsy Why we love it: We took a class from The Northern Needle this year and fell in love with the art of weaving! Be sure to purchase a class to go with that loom kit. 4. Vanilla Bean + Sriracha Salt | $4-12 Where to buy it: The Allspicery Why we love it: Your cookies will never be the same after you try this vanilla bean salt. And The Sriracha salt? Your eggs will thank you. That is all. 5. Dinner at the Long Table | $40 Where to buy it: Barnes and Noble  Why we love it: Highly successful restauranteur Andrew Tarlow's debut cookbook is based on the concept that a meal can be beautiful and ambitious, while also being unfussy and inviting. The hardback beautifully captures a year’s worth of dishes meant to be shared among friends. Or co-workers. Or anyone you generally enjoy spending time with. 6. Cattail Zipper Bag | $40 Where to buy it: Jake Castro | Midtown Farmer's Market – 12/17 | 8th Annual Handmade Holidays market at Beatnik Studios – 12/18 Why we love it: These unique leather bags are laser engraved + hand sewn in our very own city and are downright gorgeous. 1. Opinel Le Petit Chef Set | $54.94 Where to buy it: Amazon Why we love it: Everyone should know how to properly use a knife, and handing your Misono Gyutou to your 10-year-old seems like an unwise parenting move. These are still sharp—they're not for unsupervised use—but there's a guard so your kid can learn how to hold and use a knife — there's also a peeler! 2. Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls | $35 Where to buy it: Rebelgirls.co Why we love it: The most crowd-funded book in history. Need we say more? 3.

Embroidery Starter Kit | $39 Where to buy it: Etsy Why we love it: Because some of us can't sew. But would like our kids to know how. 6. Custom Memory Game | $29.99 Where to buy it: Pinhole Press Why we love it: You can personalize your very own memory game for your kid with photos that are meaningful to their little lives.

Other times, we have meetings over mimosas and Blood Mary's on the Delta King. You can guess what kind of meeting this was. Many of us have lived in Sacramento for quite some time, if not most of our lives. But several of us had never been aboard the historical boat that floats, poised upon our city's river. Curiosity was starting to get the best of us and when rumblings of an $11 bottomless mimosa made it to our office...there was no stopping us. We recently climbed aboard and discovered there was more to the vessel than meets the eye, including a haunted theater, incredible history and some of the best views. b83b6118b83b5978b83b6106b83b6002 b83b6007 b83b6039b83b6011b83b6113b83b6048 b83b6073 b83b6102b83b6107    b83b6126 [post_date] => 2016-12-11 21:25:15 [post_excerpt] => [post_parent] => 0 [post_status] => publish [post_title] => Brunch on the Delta King [post_type] => post [slug] => delta-king [__type:protected] => [_edit_last] => 1 [is_this_post_a_press_item] => 0 [_is_this_post_a_press_item] => field_57d194812eaa9 [_thumbnail_id] => 6147 [ha_post_views_count] => 832 [_yoast_wpseo_content_score] => 60 [short_header] => 0 [_short_header] => field_59023606f8c0c [exclude_from_reccomended_posts] => 0 [_exclude_from_reccomended_posts] => field_59149ab33728e [_jd_tweet_this] => no [_yoast_wpseo_primary_category] => [post_date_gmt] => 2016-12-11 21:25:15 [comment_status] => open [ping_status] => open [post_password] => [post_name] => delta-king [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2016-12-11 21:25:15 [post_modified_gmt] => 2016-12-11 21:25:15 [post_content_filtered] => [guid] => http://workbyhoney.com/?p=6142 [menu_order] => 0 [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw [status] => publish [image] => )

Here's our top three tips for your next trip to the farmer's market this fall. 1. Talk to vendors! Talking to the farmers and vendors is one of the huge benefits of any farmer's market. Most farmers are excited to talk about what they do. Ask them things like, where their farm is located or how they would pair + serve their produce. 2. Know what's in season. Chances are, you won't find bing cherries at the farmer's market right now - they're just not in season. So before you set out to make your latest and greatest Pinterest recipe, take a peek at this chart, courtesy of our friends at Farm-to-Fork, and know what to expect! 3. Bring a bag, bring a cooler. Oftentimes, there are just as many deals on poultry, fish, dairy and beyond as there are on produce. Don't get stuck wishing you could buy that drool-worthy hunk of Humboldt Fog if only you had an ice chest...   b83b3957b83b3975 b83b3967 b83b3920 b83b3962 b83b3903 [post_date] => 2016-11-22 02:03:38 [post_excerpt] => [post_parent] => 0 [post_status] => publish [post_title] => Farmer's Market Tips [post_type] => post [slug] => farmers-market-tips [__type:protected] => [_edit_last] => 1 [is_this_post_a_press_item] => 0 [_is_this_post_a_press_item] => field_57d194812eaa9 [_thumbnail_id] => 6356 [_oembed_34131efb9573f9c8efea2531d41f193c] => [_oembed_time_34131efb9573f9c8efea2531d41f193c] => 1479913089 [ha_post_views_count] => 647 [_yoast_wpseo_content_score] => 30 [short_header] => 0 [_short_header] => field_59023606f8c0c [exclude_from_reccomended_posts] => 0 [_exclude_from_reccomended_posts] => field_59149ab33728e [_jd_tweet_this] => no [_yoast_wpseo_primary_category] => [post_date_gmt] => 2016-11-22 02:03:38 [comment_status] => open [ping_status] => open [post_password] => [post_name] => farmers-market-tips [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2016-11-22 02:03:38 [post_modified_gmt] => 2016-11-22 02:03:38 [post_content_filtered] => [guid] => http://workbyhoney.com/?p=6349 [menu_order] => 0 [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw [status] => publish [image] => )
