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 

Summertime Potato Salad 

White Bean and Veggie Bruschetta

Guilt-Free Cheesy 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. 🙂
