Labor Day Recipe Roundup

I absolutely love long weekends.

Especially when you get Mondays off from work.

(I’ve always felt like Monday is the best day of the week to be off work – somehow it makes your weekend feel exponentially longer, and your week feel that much shorter!)

And we’re only 1 day away from a long weekend.

Hooray for Labor Day! The husband and I are going off the grid for a few days, to catch up with family and get some much needed R&R. Before we head out, I thought I’d share some of my favorite recipes to make your backyard parties, BBQs, and get togethers even more tasty 🙂

Seven Layer Bean Dip

Spicy Guacamole Dip 

Healthy Potato Salad

White Bean and Veggie Bruschetta

Loaded Veggie Nachos

Gourmet Popcorn

Vegetarian Quesadillas

The Best Vegetarian Chili Ever

Homemade Mini Pizzas

And for dessert….

Cherry Berry Crumble Pie

Ooey-Gooey Chocolate Cupcakes with Marshmallow Frosting

Hope everyone has a great time during this last holiday weekend of the summer!

  1. The ooey gooey chocolate cupcakes with marshmallow frosting look so delicious. I love everything chocolate. Might I suggest that you make your next batch with chocolate from I’m totally going to make some of those cupcakes for halloween.

  2. Wow!! All things are looking delicious. I also like to make different types of delicious recipes. I really admired on your effort for making this recipe.

    • Thanks so much! I did have an awesome Labor Day weekend – filled with yummy food and wine 🙂 Glad to hear you enjoyed the long weekend too!

  3. I hope your extended weekend was a good one Anjali! Although I imagine if you ate food like this that it couldn’t be anything but great! The vegetarian quesadillas look particularly fabulous! And I love that you topped them with avocado! Such a tasty way to bump up the fiber content just a bit.

    • Thanks so much Kati! My weekend / vacation was amazing – spent about 4 days down in Paso Robles (wine country) and then another 5 days in Hawaii! It was a fabulous week+ off 🙂 I’m sure you will love the quesadillas! Avocado is one of my favorite toppings for mexican food – totally agree, they’re great for added fiber and for adding healthy fats to your meal too!

      • That sounds amazing!! Definitely a great way to spend some time off. 🙂
