No. 100: Woman's Industrial Kitchen
Reviving the historic lunchroom at the Woman's Industrial Exchange sounded like the kind of impossible task issued to heroines in fairy tales, like picking lentils out of the ashes. But Irene Smith, who gained an ardent local following with her Souper Freak food truck, has pulled off a happy ending. The tomato aspic and chicken salad are back.

You can relax. It looks like Maryland won't be getting that new mango creme Girl Scout cookie.
The new cookies contain something called NutriFusion, "an all-natural nutritional food additive" that not everyone is impressed with. Read this and this.
My objection to the new cookie has nothing to do with its nutritive value, though. I hate mango. I love mangoes, but I hate mango flavoring in everything.
The Girl Scouts of Central Maryland won't be getting the mango cremes, which are being produced by ABC Bakers of Richmond, Va. The Maryland scouts get their cookies from Little Brownie Bakers of Louisville, Ky, the other licensed provider of Girl Scout cookies.
What's more, whereas cookie season is ramping up across most of the country, the Girl Scouts of Central Maryland do their cookie sales in the fall.
So even if you wanted a mango creme cookie, you'd have to wait.
