Thanksgiving Recipes

Each year Donor Relations and Stewardship works with students in the Margaret Ritchie School of Family and Consumer Sciences to create Thanksgiving appropriate recipes to share with alumni, donors and friends.

These recipes are developed by students in Family Consumer Sciences 385, using the Quantity Food Production and Equipment Lab. During this course students learn and practice principles of quantity food production including recipe development and evaluation. The course contributes to the supervised practice experience for students in the Coordinated Program in Dietetics. For the Thanksgiving project, students are asked to create a team recipe that reflected both the spirit of the season and Vandal pride. The recipes can be found here.

We hope you enjoy these recipes and make them part of your holiday table.

Year of the Pulse: 2016

2016 is the International Year of Pulses, those edible seeds of plants in the legume family. To celebrate Idaho’s most popular pulse crops, the students in the Margaret Ritchie School of Family and Consumer Sciences feature one or more pulses in each delicious Thanksgiving Recipe. Pulses include dry beans and peas, chickpeas, and lentils.

Hearty congratulations to this year’s winning recipe, Vandal Gold Lentil Curry, created by Jacki Raivo and Jessica Bricky, and all the students who created yummy, pulse inspired holiday dishes this year!
