The Silver Diner: Vegan Restaurant Review: Update

You may recall that I wrote a review of my regional favorite, The Silver Diner, sometime last year.

If you read my last post with the recipe for peach salsa, you remember that my daughters and I took a day trip to Charlottesville last week.

My younger daughter andContinue reading “Revolutionary Soup: Vegan Restaurant Review”
