“My favorite comfort food is anything that’s baked, but mostly cinnamon rolls or muffins. The best cinnamon rolls are from Cake & Corolla right at the bottom of the hill as you walk toward downtown Easton. They’re great. I also like baking muffins with my toddler at home.”

“My comfort food would have to be La Bamba. More than having food or authentic cuisine, I also love to find my community, so one thing that I looked around for when I started working at Lafayette College especially in the Easton area was for my Latinx folks. La Bamba was the first spot I found. You don’t just dine there. You really connect with the family that works there. You get to experience the flavorings, the seasonings, the meats, choices, and everything that they have, which is genuinely authentic Mexican food. Although I am not Mexican, I am very appreciative of that culture. That is my safe space whenever I need to eat good homemade food and connect with my colleagues and students. That is the spot where I take people of all identities and backgrounds.”
