Life’s more fun when you live it flavorfully—that’s why we pepper our days with dynamic reads, inspired adventures, brain-feeding podcasts, and recipes we’ll cook up as soon as we have the time. Here’s our Friday roundup of the five things we’re into and up to this week:


1. Stretching | Los Angeles Magazine
Skyscraper Yoga Offers Breathtaking Views of L.A.
Views of DTLA from 1,000 feet up? Sign us up. It can be easy to forget how gorgeous this city is from ground level during rush hour, but sunrise yoga overlooking the city is just the reminder we needed. Namaste up here for the rest of the day now.

2. Swirling | Bon Appétit
How to Master the Hummus Swoosh
If you’re anything like us, you have no qualms about diving straight into your hummus container with a spoon. For the moments when that’s less acceptable (like when you’re hosting, for instance), there’s a simple, elegant way to plate everybody’s favorite chickpea dip. Perfect your swoosh now and never think twice about serving up ~fancy~ hummus again.

3. Craving | For Those Who Savor
Crazy Feta Crab Dip
Cooking out this weekend? Don’t forget the most crucial part: the snack everyone digs into while the main course is on the grill. For this celebratory weekend, our cravings are leading us right to some Crazy Feta Crab Dip. Whip it up before your guests arrive and we’re willing to bet you’ll see the bottom of that casserole dish before you can even say “Happy 4th!”

4. Upgrading | Food52
A Genius Way to Upgrade Your Fried Eggs
Our favorite way to embellish our eggs? Harissa. Always Harissa. But we’re open to other ideas, too. This weekend, you can catch us trying Food52’s latest suggestion.

5. Listening | Travelogue Podcast
