Yes Yes Cookies

I remember them very well, I grew up in the Boston area, it was the mid 60's and I got even chubbier eating those cookies.. They had a blue wrapping as I remember with a Hawaiian figure ( maybe a Hula Girl?) I was thinking maybe Sunshine made them? They were rectangle shaped, covered in coconut, chewy, with caramel and chocolate.. most of all they were delicious and I would try to eat a whole box till my older sister hid them on me!

Seeking unique LA food experience on the Westside

For Mexican: El Cholo at Wilshire & 11th in Santa Monica..

I also suggest for breakfast, if you like pancakes in a mom & pop friendly atmosphere, try John O'Groats on Pico & Patricia. It gets crowded on weekends but it's worth it.

Cardamom-Spiced Carrot Cake with Whipped Cream-Cheese Frosting

This sounds fantastic. A lower fat version could substitute applesauce for 1/2 of the oil
