Opinion—Thrive with these five plant-based meals

Olivia Apa, Staff Writer March 18, 2022
It’s so important to be eating enough food, and enough of the foods that are going to make your body feel good, especially with social lives and school work, cabin fever and jobs.

Opinion—Recycling and sustainability in a pandemic

Katarina Rothhorn February 4, 2021
This pandemic has incited a plethora of changes to our daily lives and habits, including the most obvious inclusion of physical distancing and mask wearing in public spaces. However, a less conspicuous, but equally as important impact of COVID-19 is the increased waste produced from take-out and sanitary packaging of food.

Cooking with Maggie—Homemade baked apple cider donuts

Maggie Duly November 3, 2020
When I think of fall, I think of apple cider, donuts, pumpkins and romping around my favorite cider mill. Unfortunately, as many of you may know there are no cider mills near or around Marquette, and I’m still failing to find one in the whole U.P.
