Western Cooks: DIY Pizza Party

By: Rachael Buselmeier   I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Trader Joe’s sells pizza dough for a dollar and it is both vegan and delicious.

Western Cooks: Cranberry Orange Banana Bread

By: Kristina Rivera Banana bread is my favorite comfort food. The ingredients are simple and you can mix everything in one bowl for minimal dish pile up. It’s also the perfect way to use any overly ripened bananas. Why not dress it up? This banana bread recipe is a fall twist on your average loaf.

My favorite aspect was the orange glaze. It perfectly complemented the tartness […]

What’s Happening in Sports

By: Conner Celli The college football season is starting to wind down, and the Washington State Cougars and Washington Huskies are continuing to have success. The Cougars are coming off a huge win against Pac-12 North foe the Stanford Cardinal. Cardinal running back Bryce Love had been punishing every team he had faced up to the matchup with the Cougars.

Survival guide: chores edition
