Of all the places to set up shop for a Chinese take out, right next to the immortal Moy’s on campus seems like…well, the least likely spot for that sort of operation.  But then again, Millions of Milk Tea has a great deal more than Kung Pao Chicken and wontons. As the name suggests, beverages […]

Treat to Try: Gooey Butter Cake

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Gooey Butter Cake

If there’s one thing the world needs more of, it’s Gooey Butter Cake. Granted, it’s not the most exquisite looking treat.

There’s shaved ice, and then there’s shave ice. Shaved ice is what goes into sno-cones, the familiar treat based in granular bits of crunchy ice coated in day-glo fruity flavors.

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Happy Little Treats

Happy Little Treats is one of the outcomes of the disassembly of a well-known, well-loved local project called Angry Baker. And while “happy” and “angry” are diametrically opposed in terms of literal meaning, the legacy of excellent baked goods and sweets continues on.  Happy is vegan – that’s good to know up front. There’s no dairy or […]
