The time has come when stretchy pants are in style and homemade cooking is at its prime.
Texas Tech University's Hospitality Services recently added a new menu feature to help students get in the holiday spirit with 10 days of homemade Thanksgiving desserts at The Market, located in the Stangel/Murdough residence hall. Each day between Nov. 10-21, Hospitality Services chef Kara Perez unveiled a new dessert.
“At The Market, we know seeing the same food every day can become monotonous,” she said. “We strive to offer our customers something new and different on a regular basis. A lot of our students live here on campus, so we really want them to feel like this is their home and help them to look forward to eating with us on campus. What better way to celebrate the holiday season than with some delicious seasonal desserts? We hope everyone enjoyed our sweet treats.”
Below is a list of all 10 of the desserts Perez prepared for students. And while she didn't divulge all her secrets to us, she did provide recipes for five of the desserts (they are hyperlinked in red) for Red Raider fans to enjoy over the Thanksgiving holiday.
