Religious Bigotry President Obama has been roundly criticized for his apparent unwillingness to use the term “radical Islamic terrorism.” His critics seem to suggest that through the mere use of that terminology, the defeat of ISIS would be assured...

TC DDA: Focus On Your Mission What on earth is the Traverse City DDA thinking? Purchasing land around (not within) its TIF boundaries and then offering it at a discount to developers? That is not its mission. Sadly enough, it is already falling down on the job regarding what is its mission. Crosswalks are deteriorating all around downtown, trees aren’t trimmed, sidewalks are uneven. Why can’t the DDA do a better job of maintaining what it already has? And still no public restrooms downtown, despite all the tax dollars captured since 1997. What a joke...

European-Americans Are Boring “20 Fascinating People” in northern Michigan -- and every single one is European-American? Sorry, but this is journalistically incorrect. It’s easy for editors to assign and reporters to write stories about people who are already within their personal and professional networks. It’s harder to dig up stuff about people you don’t know and have never met. Harder is better...

Be Aware Of Lawsuit While most non-Indians were sleep walking, local Odawa leaders filed a lawsuit seeking to potentially have most of Emmet County and part of Charlevoix County declared within their reservation and thus under their jurisdiction. This assertion of jurisdiction is embedded in their recently constructed constitution as documentation of their intent...

More Parking Headaches I have another comment to make about downtown TC parking following Pat Sullivan’s recent article. My hubby and I parked in a handicap spot (with a meter) behind Mackinaw Brew Pub for lunch. The handicap spot happens to be 8-10 spaces away from the payment center. Now isn’t that interesting...

Demand Change At Women’s Resource Center Change is needed for the Women’s Resource Center for the Grand Traverse Area (WRCGT). As Patrick Sullivan pointed out in his article, former employees and supporters don’t like the direction WRCGT has taken. As former employees, we are downright terrified at the direction Juliette Schultz and Ralph Soffredine have led the organization...

They're SugarKissed

Ross Boissoneau - December 10th, 2012

   

If you find yourself hungering for a sweet treat, Christine Burke has you covered.
    Actually, you can get your yogurt covered there, with any of a multitude of toppings. Or get a tasty sweet cupcake. Or a cookie, or even some tea to cleanse your palate with, so you can have some more desserts.
    It’s all available at SugarKissed, downtown Traverse City’s newest and, well, sweetest eatery.
    SugarKissed is Burke’s brainchild, a place that’s sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. While it is becoming known for its rotating cast of yogurt flavors, Burke wants to make clear that it’s “more than just a yogurt store.” (She's pictured here with  baker Maeda Walton.)
    How much more? Burke actually seems proudest of her cupcakes, no doubt because they’re made in house by herself and her two bakers. She notes the key lime and peanut butter chocolate as two of the most popular, but points to a special berry flavor as one unique to the store.
    “It’s blueberry made with Light of Day tea,” she said.
