Disney Channel movies were a staple of 2000s youth culture.

Revisiting Disney Channel classics

When I was younger, I would watch Disney Channel for hours on end. The TV station’s movies continue to hold a special place in my heart, so I’m going to be evaluating whether or not some of my favorites still hold up today.

Where to eat vegan in Baltimore

Searching for plant-based options in or around Baltimore is easy with its plethora of vegan restaurants and businesses. Its tight-knit community puts it at the forefront of veganism, with many annual festivals and events.

Roland Park Bagels is one of the many local bagelries tested by Gebo in her quest for the city's best bagel.

The search for Baltimore's best bagel

I’m from Brooklyn. As you probably know from any conversation you’ve had with a New Yorker, this means that I can’t shut up about the place. It also means that I have a deep appreciation for a good bagel — and high standards.

Where to find the hottest coffee near campus

This semester, take it upon yourself to explore the Charm City coffee scene. Luckily for students, some of the best spots in Baltimore are just a hop, skip and a jump away from Homewood Campus, boasting tasty coffee and treats that will keep you coming back for more.

The KitschWich, the titular sandwich of Kitsch, features griddled brioche bread with scrambled egg and American cheese.

At Kitsch, simplicity is elegant and accessible

"Wait, so your favorite restaurant in Baltimore sells... breakfast sandwiches?" I'm 19 years old. I should be old enough to scramble an egg and place it between two pieces of bread. However, the many Hopkins students who consider themselves patrons of Kitsch would dare to disagree.

How to make white chocolate raspberry scones

As a self-proclaimed stress-baker, I always have the ingredients on hand to bake some of these simple but oh-so-delicious white chocolate raspberry scones. I have made these treats for just about everything — brunch with the girls, family breakfasts, early morning staff meetings at work and as a treat to buoy me through exam season. My roommate, Abbie, claims they are my best work (she may be exaggerating, but I’ll let her).

The Magic of the Waverly Farmers Market

A few weeks ago, I woke up bright and early at 8 a.m. on a Saturday to attend the Waverly Farmers Market. I am usually tempted to sleep in and rest on Saturday mornings; however, this particular Saturday, my friend Reese and I were motivated to go to the Bramble Baking booth at the farmers market, which always sells out before 9 a.m.

TikTok's tortilla hack is an easy way to slightly elevate the dish.

The highs and lows of TikTok recipes

Every Sunday, I get a notification from my phone announcing that my screen time is over five hours a day. A closer look shows that at least a third of that time is spent on TikTok.
