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.”

That's because the coffee bar is located in Oglethorpe Dining Commons, an all-you-can-eat residence hall dining facility on the 34,000-student campus. 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.

Getting dinner on the table is a challenge for all parents. Multiply that by 7,650 diners, and you'll know the difficulty facing the University of Georgia Food Services staff. So they created a clever program called "Taste of Home." Parents send in recipes, and the staff selects, cooks, and serves about 120 dishes in the dining halls at the annual "Taste of Home" event. Here's a main dish and dessert that made the grade at UGA.
