Return to Sunflower Vegetarian Restaurant

Went to Sunflower Vegetarian Restaurant for an early lunch. I haven’t been here in over a year and I’m glad I checked in today. Had their version of Mango Lassi (not sweet enough), spring rolls (always good), and Vegan General Tso’s (too much food). The food is always good here, though not healthy since I…

Masala Wok – Restaurant Review

I was in the Fairfax area last week and stopped by Masala Wok to get some plant based food. It’s an Indian/Asian fusion cuisine restaurant and I had figured it was worth a shot. They have a special vegan menu with a whole page of options for diners to try. Unfortunately, there were no Indian…

IndAroma – Restaurant Review

I’ve been to that shopping center many times (Staples is a couple of doors down and Home Depot is across the street) but never stopped…

Coconut Cookies

I found a recipe for coconut cookies on Facebook a while ago. I’m not a fan of coconut ice cream and thought this might not taste good but figured I’d still give this recipe a shot. The first couple of times I made the cookies I either added a bit too much coconut milk which…
