Cindy here from your UW bakery, I thought I’d share my favourite cookie that I grew up with. Something that always showed up like a warm hug made by both my Mother and Grandmother whenever a little extra love was needed. The simple and delicate flavour of these cookies are loved by all, making this not only a holiday cookie but a favourite go to treat.

CHEF BLOG: Chef Mark's Family Chili Recipe

Growing up, chili was a meal we often had at home, it was one of the few recipes my dad would cook. Mom and Dad eventually came up with a bit of a rivalry surrounding it. Moms was a little soupier and had a bit of spiced flavour, while dads was thicker, all liquid drained from the canned beans and tomatoes, and lighter on spice as dad didn’t enjoy spices. When I moved out I continued to make my own chili, taking cues from both parents, who cooked without recipes.

At home, chili was always served with buttered toast, which is a great side, but for me, tortilla chips make the best companion.

A lot of recipes for chili will have sour cream, shredded cheese, fresh cilantro, green onion. While those can be great, that’s not what this one is about.

Student Review: Umami at DC Bytes

I visited DC BYTES – Umami on Tuesday March 3rd for lunch. I expected it to be extremely busy however there were only a few people in line in front of me when I got there, and I was in and out in under ten minutes. The atmosphere was welcoming and immediately amplified my hunger.

Student Review: The Market at CMH

Entering the cozy warmth of the cafe with three of my friends, I scanned the general area and was impressed at the cleanliness and the organized layout. The food counters were spotless, the drinks were well stocked, and it was easy to navigate the different categories of food throughout the spacious cafe. My mouth watered at the various complementary smells, the scent of sizzling spice drew me towards Warrior Burgers and I hungrily eyed the menu.
