It's the start of Labor Day weekend, which means you're blasting Lose Yourself, drinking a Red Bull or five, and getting pumped up for a marathon of food festivities. You've made grocery lists the length of epic poems, schlepped totes of heavy-as-rocks melons from the market, and gone out of your way to buy the right type of cookies for an icebox cake spectacular. It's all part of a larger plan to be the guest who receives the highest tally of food compliments this weekend.
But maybe you won't wake up on Labor Day until 2 P.M. Maybe you'll forget to change out of your pajamas before you head over to a party at your neighbors' house. Maybe you'd rather bring something that's delicious but didn't take you all day to make.
Whether you want to hide away in your kitchen making hand pies or you'd rather throw a can of chickpeas in the food processor and call it a veggie burger, we've got the recipes for you. Laborious versus lenient: You make the call.
A (former) student of English, a lover of raisins, a user of comma splices. My spirit animal is an eggplant. I'm probably the person who picked all of the cookie dough out of the cookie dough ice cream. For that, I'm sorry.
