Dormét Cooking is the only place on the web where you can find  gourmet food dorm style, with a Weshop specific shopping list. 

It’s that oh-so-wonderful time of year again, when you’re feeling happy-go-lucky and carefree – midterms week. We know that all of these exams and papers tend to take a toll on the body and mind, but we’ve found a clever way to cope: stress eating. This week’s recipe is easy to make, delicious, and will hopefully give you the strength to make it to spring break without seriously hurting anyone.

Please note that while we chose to make Red Velvet cake with Funfetti frosting, you’re welcome to use whatever flavors you want or can find at Weshop.
