Every Christmas, Carla Bullock’s family gathers in Athens to have brunch of fresh fruit, grits, quiche Lorraine, coffee, juice and a particular favorite of Carla’s daughter, Bridget: orange pecan coffee cake.

“Every year, my mom gives me the task of mixing the glaze,” said Bridget Bullock. “And after I drizzle it on the cake, I always lick the bowl. My mom is a great cook and she bakes a lot of tasty cakes, but this one reminds me of Christmas. It’s special because of the memories it evokes.”

According to foodservice director Mike Floyd, it is just one of the innovations that has more than doubled meal counts in the recently renovated dining hall.
