Happy weekend! What’s cooking this Saturday morning? Do you have cookout or picnic plans this weekend? Or perhaps you’re taking a mini-vacation away, in the peace of your own home. What are you eating, and what are you cooking? Here are a few ideas from the past week at The Kitchn.

• Two very good tips for making better pizza: video tip from Molly of Orangette and Brandon of Delancey.

• Moving? Here’s some cooking equipment to bring with you while in transition, and some how to kill a lobster, how to help out weak watermelon, a great cut of meat for grilling, and lots of beautiful picnic inspiration.

• A gorgeous tiny kitchen renovation that looks much bigger than it is, plus a green and bright bachelor kitchen.

• Good ideas for leftover pickle juice.

• The pasta roundup for the week: a pasta timer that sings opera, a lovely dish of pasta with mint pesto and peas, and a gnocchi project.

• A pink and yellow birthday party with a pink ruffled cake and peach and prosecco coolers.

• Cocktails! The Paloma, another good use for tequila, plus a red cocktail for Bastille Day.

Have a wonderful weekend! We hope that you’re enjoying your kitchen and perhaps your garden too this weekend.
