Although you’ve probably only used ice cream cones for, well, ice cream, the recipe possibilities are truly endless for this sweet, crunchy treat—if you think creatively. Here are three completely unique spins on the classic ice cream cone.

Even if you aren’t serving ice cream in your ice cream cone, you can still emulate the cute look of the beloved summertime sweet. These creative cupcakes are baked into mini ice cream cones and then topped with a swirl of icing that looks just like soft serve.

Four Sisters Restaurant: Explore International Cuisine at This Vietnamese Favorite

July 22, 2015 12:35 pm

For fans of pho in the Fairfax area, Four Sisters Restaurant is truly a must. This Vietnamese restaurant excels in preparing rice and vermicelli dishes, but pho soup is its specialty. This soup, a staple of Vietnamese cuisine, features a rich, savory broth that teems with slices of meat or tofu. A hearty dose of noodles, bean sprouts and veggies, plus slices of lime add to the soup's flavor and appeal.

The menu includes a wide variety of types of pho, including beef, chicken, and meatballs over tender rice noodles and savory broth. There are also dinner options for two, four, six, or ten people, which include a smorgasbord of dishes perfect for sampling. All of the food is beautifully presented, and the restaurant itself is equally as attractive.

Bright, colorful artwork lines the walls, and large, round tables provide enough space for the whole family or a group of friends. Four Sisters Restaurant is open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
