Activities are wonderful, but sometimes, it’s fine to want to shut the world out for a couple of days, and make some serious time for you. Don’t be afraid of FOMO, either. There will always be another party, another pub crawl, another picnic. The time you’ll spend indulging in the things you want to do, alone, are well worth it. Here’s a handy list of awesome things to do this weekend!

Cupcakes and macarons have had their day in the spotlight. I propose we elect these delightful little cakewiches — yes, I just made that up — as the latest “it” dessert.

You could basically put anything inside a tortilla, top it with sour cream and Tapatio, and I would eat it. And melted cheese inside? Girl. Hence my love for quesadillas, which can be stuffed with just about anything, including healthy crap for you kale and squash nuts. Here are 10 quesadilla recipes that will appeal to just about everyone.
Admit it. When you think of artichokes, you think of spinach and artichoke dip. I don’t blame you, it’s delightful, but I must beg you to stop limiting the artichoke. This fall and spring veggie has so much more to offer! Try these eight recipes out and see what I mean…
I do a lot of cooking at home, but as a creature of habit, I have to sometimes push myself to try new things. In an effort to do just that, and cut back on my chicken and red meat intake, I’ve been trying my hand at cooking a lot more fish. Salmon has always been my go-to and I continue to love it’s rich flavor and meatier texture, but there are, quite literally, many other fish in the sea. Here are 10 fish recipes to try if you, like me, are indulging your inner pescatarian.
What’s not to love about a kebab? First of all, it’s common knowledge that anything served on a stick is instantly more delicious and fun to eat, but they’re also great for parties, keeping kids’ (or immature adults’) attention at the dinner table, or just combining interesting flavors in a new way. It might be a bit too early to fire up the grill some of these recipes call for, but most ingredients can be oven roasted and/or seared in a pan for similar results. Ready to get cookin’? Click through for 11 kebab recipes — from cilantro lime shrimp to french toast(!) — that had me drooling on my keyboard…
Would you judge me if I told you I’ve had couscous for dinner every day for the past week? Would you judge me if I told you I’m not even close to sick of it and will probably have it for every dinner for the next year? Seriously, it’s just so delicious and so versatile — it works great as a base for thick stew or stir fry; it’s amazing in salads, as a side-dish, or just on its own. It’s also fairly healthy, depending on how much butter you put in it (confession: it is not at all healthy when I make it). Click through for 10 mouthwatering couscous recipes, guaranteed to turn you into a crazy couscous freak like me!

Hi guys, I have something important to announce. I am officially declaring war on the War On Women Eating Starch. Okay, so there’s not an official War On Women Eating Starch, I’ve just noticed that a lot of the women I know never eat potatoes. It seems to be a weight thing, because potatoes are heavy and don’t have a heck of a lot of nutritional value, and it’s been baked, heh, into us to, like, worry about our weight every time we put something in our mouths. As a result, I see a lot of women I know asking for a side salad instead of fries, or brown rice instead of mashed potatoes, and I’m like, “LADIES, I’m not saying you need to hoover a casserole dish full of scalloped potatoes into your piehole for every meal, but life is meant to be lived!” And you are not living if you don’t let yourself eat some form of potato on at least a semi regular basis. So join me in taking back potatoes, be they mashed, gratin-ed, twice-baked or deep fried, with one of these yummy recipes.
