Last Call: Michelle Obama’s Cookies Edge Out Ann Romney’s In Presidential Cookie Contest
Family Circle: Family Circle has the results of its sixth quadrennial Presidential Cookie Contest, in which the two ladies battling it out for FLOTUS each submit a cookie recipe for a little friendly baking competition. Lady O’s White and Dark Chocolate Chip Cookie won out over Ann Romney’s M&M cookies by only 287 votes; the smallest margin in the contest’s 20-year history. Interestingly, the winner of the Presidential Cookie Contest has predicted the winner of the presidential race in every case except one. (Cindy McCain’s Oatmeal-Butterscotch Cookies beat out Michelle Obama’s Shortbread Cookies in 2008.) But we suspect that has more to do with oatmeal (the cookie base for 5 of the 6 winning recipes) than anything else.

Inside Scoop SF: Let 2013 be known as the year the Zagat Guide got nothing right. On the heels of a New York City Barnes and Noble putting out the NYC Guide before the results were officially announced, the San Francisco Guide spelled its titular city “San Francsico” on the book’s spine. They’re recalling the botched copies.
