Figs are one of my favorite late Summer/early Fall fruits. Thus, after making bacon-wrapped dates, I looked for a similar recipe that used fresh figs. To my delight, I came across this recipe that combines figs, goat cheese, and prosciutto.
Inspired by the recipe but wanting to keep it simple, I came up with my take on the appetizer. Rather than heat up the house, I decided to throw these tasty little bites on the barbecue.
Although any variety of fig will work, I used Calimyrna and found that the easiest way to remove the flesh is with a melon baller. This delicious appetizer is perfect for a party because it can be prepped ahead of time and only requires a few minutes on the grill, so you won't miss any of the fun. With the salty prosciutto, sweet fig, and tangy goat cheese center, these nibbles are full of flavor and texture, and are sure to impress your guests.
We've all got someone (or two or three . . .) on our gift list who rocks to their own special beat. So this holiday season, treat them to something spectacular that's easy on the eyes, music to their ears, and perfectly in tune with their personal sense of style.
Not only do Beats Solo HD headphones deliver the superior sound Beats by Dr. Dre products are famous for, but they also look as good as they sound — drenched in colors that are red like a heart, teal like Miami, white like snow, and lots more.
Next Monday, Sept. 2, professionals everywhere will take advantage of Labor Day to play hooky, travel, and, of course, eat. Although the holiday originated out of labor disputes, the first Monday in September has become synonymous with many things — not the least of which is a national celebration of food. You may know exactly what you'll be snacking on next Monday, but what tasty tidbits do you know about the holiday weekend's food heritage? Click through our quiz to find out.

We're thinking this recipe from be-healthful will be a lip-smacking way to use up any leftover watermelon from Labor Day.

There's no better way to celebrate the long weekend than with a few friends, passing around a plethora of irresistible, homemade dishes — everything from an ice-cold gin cocktail, shaken and served up in a mason jar, to a sweet apple cobbler. We've put together a no-fail menu that is easy to prepare, but more importantly is memorable and delicious to leave your guests wanting more.
Gin and Lavender Lemonade
If warmer weather leaves you craving something slightly sweet and fizzy this weekend, then whip up a gin and lavender lemonade. It takes five minutes to prepare, yet the flavors are intoxicating. Lavender dry soda and Meyer lemon give the drink a floral tang, the vanilla bean soda adds just a hint of confectionery sweetness, and the gin offers a refreshing kick. It's a sweet way to toast the end of Summer.
Grilled Jalapeño Poppers
Light up the grill a little early to make these chipotle jalapeño appetizers. Each halved jalapeño is stuffed with a combination of crispy bacon, whipped cream cheese, and pepper jack cheese. These peppers tend to pack a lot of heat, so top them off with a refreshing cilantro sauce to balance the spiciness.
Create a taco bar this weekend, because it's always easy to set up plus it's a guaranteed crowd favorite. This pork carnitas recipe will teach you the basics for cooking perfectly braised, shredded carnitas. Toppings are limited to your imagination, but we love the fresh, tangy flavor of salsa verde alongside sweet pickled red onions and salty cotija cheese.
We've had another great week on POPSUGAR Girls' Guide! We kicked off the week with an amazing episode of Just Add Sugar where Brandi Milloy showed us how to make One Direction cookies just in time for this weekend's This Is Us premiere. Next, Allison McNamara showed us how to make our own stud earrings on Designer DIY — you can never have too many. Last but not least, we had another episode of Top That! (featuring Miley twerking, of course), along with a great lightning round in which Tyler Oakley and Becca Frucht pair celebrities with the commercials they appeared in before they were big.

Cocktails taste better when they're enjoyed with good company, but rather than craft a bunch of different beverages, make pitcher drinks like sangria and punch. All you have to do is make a large batch, and everyone gets a glass faster. Hooray! Here are a few of our favorites, just in time for that pool party, BBQ, or whatever else you have planned for the holiday weekend.
