Recipe: Turkey Chili

In my hunt for the best comfort food, I stumbled across this chili recipe. This is one of the best dinners I have ever made, period. It takes about 30-45 minutes to prepare, but I made it in a Crock-Pot and let it cook all day. This is the perfect chili for a football game day. The prep time is not super long, and t...

Recipe: Spicy Garlic and Soy Edamame

This columnist makes sure she eats at least a little bit of unnatural green food every day.

Growing up, my uncle – lovingly nicknamed Teddy Bear Hamster – was exempt from eating any and all vegetables at family functions whether it'd be random Tuesday night dinners, Thanksgiving, birthdays … you name it. He was exempt. His reason every time was, “Green food is unnatural and gross....

Buttery crackers and creamy chicken all in one perfect casserole.

My mom was in a group for parents where she met some of her longtime best friends, and that’s where this recipe stems from. She got this recipe from one of those friends, and since then I’ve put my own twist on it. When it was my ‘birthday week’ and I got to choose dinner and all too ofte...

Recipe: Sirloin Steak with Cucumber-Dill Salsa

Is there anything cucumber salsa doesn't go with? Only way to find out is to have more.

This summer, I made it a personal mission to buy some fresh produce from the Moscow Farmers Market and make something tasty with it. There were a lot of options, from baby garlic to giant, two-foot-long squash, and I ended up walking away with a white cucumber. The only problem is I really di...

Recipe: Spicy Chorizo with Fried Potatoes

Chorizo is greasy, so it’s best to invest in a splatter guard before you attempt to
make this recipe. This dish alone can serve about three to four people.

Potatoes are the best food in existence. Period. But … they’re minimally nutritious. In fact, I’m not sure there is any benefit, other than fulfilling your love of carbs. I had to find a way to make a potato dish that gave me fried potatoes and some sort of nutrition, so some type of meat was...

Quarantine Cooking: Jalapeño Poppers

Put a little spice in your life ... with cheese and bacon bits.

July 24, 2020

We’ve all seen the memes about snacking on our two week’s worth of groceries during quarantine, but now it’s time to step up that snacking game. One of my favorite appetizers is jalapeño poppers. I’m not talking about the breaded ones you can get frozen from Walmart — fully homemade, g...

Quarantine Cooking: Lasagna

A piece of homemade lasagna and a couple slices of garlic bread make the perfect meal. Up your Italian food game by saying good-bye to its frozen counterpart.

JACQUI THOMASSON, Evergreen chief layout editor

July 17, 2020

Not too long ago, I thought I was sentenced to subpar, frozen lasagnas unless I went to a nice Italian joint. The sauce in these confines just never had the best taste to me, and I thought making my own lasagna was pretty far-fetched. Well, buckle up because this layered monstrosity will be well worth...

Quarantine Cooking: Peanut Butter Soup

Quarantine Cooking: Peanut Butter Soup

JOEL KEMEGUE, Evergreen mint editor

July 10, 2020

I love my mom, but she knows how to make at most five dishes, so growing up, me and my siblings ate rice with peanut butter soup at least twice a week. It’s pretty easy to make, and the cooking part is really just putting things in the pot and making sure it doesn’t burn. Peanut butter soup is ...

Quarantine Cooking: Spanish Rice

Since you can't go to Spain at the moment, why not bring it to your kitchen?

SARAH DANIELS, Evergreen columnist

July 3, 2020

Cooking has become a rather enjoyable part of my summer as I’m sure it has for a lot of us during quarantine. This summer, I’ve had the chance to learn some authentic Hispanic recipes and this Spanish rice is one of my favorites. This recipe is super simple and easy to make, and I like it enough...

Quarantine Cooking: Turkey Meatballs

Spaghetti, sandwiches, stroganoff or just by itself. We won't judge.

ZACH GOFF, Evergreen columnist

June 27, 2020

I’ve recently found myself making the same five dishes every single week. While that makes grocery shopping quicker, it gets monotonous. For this recipe, I looked at my usual grocery list and tried to think of something besides spaghetti to make. I think this is a great recipe partially because...

Quarantine Cooking: Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Kaiser Rolls

Mashed potatoes are not included, but they are recommended.

ZACH GOFF, Evergreen columnist

June 12, 2020

In quarantine, like a lot of other people, I cooked a lot. It helps pass the time and gets your mind off the craziness of the world. This recipe was donated by my good friend Ariel, who has made it so many times they don’t have any measurements written down. That being said, if you want to add some...

Quarantine Cooking: African Doughnuts

Don't tell anyone, but you don't have to share these.

JOEL KEMEGUE, Evergreen mint editor

June 5, 2020

I was raised on Cameroonian food as much as American, but I was also one of those kids who would order chicken nuggets at an Italian restaurant even though I was 14, so it’s taken me a while to actually be an adult. I’ve always loved African doughnuts, though. Sweet, easy to make, and I have yet to...
