What to Cook, Watch, Listen To and More This Weekend


Between the blizzard on Tuesday (which wasn’t that bad, or was actually very bad), March Madness and St. Patrick’s Day, this has been a busy week for many.

With that in mind, here’s our guide to the weekend. Below we have suggestions on what to cook, watch, read and listen to.

You could also spend a little time learning how to meditate (it really helps!), finally take the plunge and pick up yoga, or just get some high-quality sleep.

On the other hand, if you’re feeling ambitious you could get your taxes out of the way. Here’s a guide to some of the online products you can use. That deadline has a way of sneaking up.

Have a great weekend!
