A version of elotes, a popular Mexican street food, can easily be made in your dorm.

ELOTEEE... the recipe

Using what I remembered about elotes, and with a bit of help from my older sister, I was able to create a very simple recipe fit for the average broke college student. With this recipe, you’ll be able to create a taste of Mexico in your very own residence hall.

Give your body some love

“If you’re craving sweets all the time, then you’re not giving yourself enough love,” the woman said. Her words changed my life.

A love letter to Jungle Jim’s

Jungle Jim's International Market, in Fairfield, Ohio, is exactly what it says it is: an international market. What’s missing from the name are all the quirks inside that make it more than just a grocery store.  


These spinach and feta turnovers received the second ever perfect score from the "Weekly Veg."

‘The Weekly Veg’: Spinach and feta turnovers

There are no fancy spices, unusual vegetables or unheard-of proteins in this one. You literally only need spinach, eggs, feta, pizza dough, pepper and garlic. Who knew six ingredients could be thrown together so quickly, easily and deliciously?

‘The Weekly Veg’: Shakshuka

Shakshuka is one of those meals that can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner or a late-night snack if you so please, though I don’t think it would work for dessert.

A pesto manifesto

The combination of sausage, pesto and feta cheese not only dances across the mind as an idea, but dances, too, across my taste buds. The perfect ratio creates the perfect dressing for the rotini, vastly exceeding the already high expectations I set as I walked into the dining room. 


Once upon a time, not so long ago, Harris Hall was a dining hall that was home to a chocolate fountain on special occasions.

A brief history of Miami University dining halls

For 70 years, Harris Hall had functioned as the primary dining location for South Quad Miamians. At the time of its closure in the 2016-2017 school year, Harris offered buffet meals, a chocolate fondue fountain for special occasions, and two restaurant options — Panache (est. 2005) and La Mia Cucina (est. 2009).

Holy schnit!

A night with half-priced schnitzel – and fantastic schnitzel at that – creates the perfect atmosphere for anyone looking to enjoy a nice night out with a healthy serving of hearty German food. 


Bell Tower Place, one of Miami University's five dining halls, has been closed since October of 2020.

Bring back Bell: a love letter

I promise you, Bell Tower Place needs very little overhauling. I think I speak on behalf of the student body when I say that we don’t want this campus’s favored dining hall to be changed or redone — we just want it to be open.

Fridge and Pantry Street Station

Over these two years [of eating in dining halls], I’ve procured many salads and rice bowls I’ve been proud of, but my own mind can only invent so many recipes, so this week I decided to recreate the beloved Fridge & Pantry (F&P) quinoa bowls.
