1. Wild Card: 5 Genius Grilled Cheese Combinations You Need To Try

When it comes to a killer grilled cheese sandwich, usually all you need is butter, bread and cheese, but we’re here to help you kick yours up a notch. Our favorite genius combination? Smoked gouda and havarti, which pairs a ton of flavor with a mild, smoothness that amps up the creaminess. Check out our other fave grilled cheese combos. [Swirled]

2. Workout of the Week: Straight Leg Sit-Ups

You can squeeze in a very effective workout using just your bodyweight and doing exercises like straight leg sit-ups. Lie on your back with your legs flat on the ground and arms straight up above your head. Sit straight up, keeping your heels glued to the ground. Reach for the sky (not your toes) as you sit up. Return to the start in a slow and controlled fashion, and repeat for a total of 20 times. [Swirled]

3. What to Watch: “All American”

If you’re feeling nostalgic about your high school days, then “All American” is a must-watch. Spencer is uprooted from a tough town and brought to play at an upscale Beverly Hills high school. He’s talented and has a bright future ahead of him if he can stay on track and not get caught up in the drama that comes with money, girls and a lavish lifestyle that he’s never known before. If you liked “The OC” and “Friday Night Lights,” then you’ll enjoy this show. [The CW]

4. What to Read: “The Giver” by Lois Lowry

In Lois Lowry’s “The Giver,” 12-year-old Jonas learns to navigate his seemingly safe, colorless and conforming community in a new way when he learns that he’s been given the role of “receiver of memory.” Only then does he understand his community’s ugly past and the dark secrets hidden behind its emotionless way of life.

6. R&R: Matcha And Manuka Honey Face Mask

Get ready to glow by making a DIY soothing and dark circle-banishing face mask. Mix equal parts Manuka honey and matcha powder (which is grainy enough to gently exfoliate your skin), apply it to your freshly washed face and chill for a few minutes. Then, wet your hands, rub the mixture in circular motions on your face, rinse it off and moisturize. [Swirled]

7. What to Eat: Skillet Brown Butter Banana Bread

Step up your baking game this weekend by making skillet brown butter banana bread. With nutty brown butter, ripe bananas and a hot skillet, you’ll be in total bliss after eating a slice of this bad boy. [Swirled]

8. What To Drink: Founders Brewing Company KBS Bourbon Barrel Aged Stout

If you’re a fan of creamy, coffee and chocolate notes, you’ll want to dive deeper into the stout world, starting with the KBS Bourbon Barrel Aged Stout. It’s made with a heavy amount of coffee and chocolate, and it’s cave-aged in oak bourbon barrels to give the beer bourbon undertones. The ABV also clocks in at a whopping 12.3 percent. [Swirled]

9. Dream Destination: Granada, Spain

A trip to Granada, Spain means two things: beautiful sights and plenty of tapas. The main reason to visit the city is the spectacular Alhambra palace, but you’ll fall in love with Granada for its laid-back charm and amazing tradition of sending out a plate of free tapas with every glass of wine.
