Wake up to these delicious recipes come Saturday and Sunday morning—even better if you convince someone else to make 'em.

This is the wonderful result of combining oatmeal's texture with the natural sweetness from bananas and the nutty goodness from lots and lots of peanut butter. You're welcome. Get the recipe at A Kitchen Addiction. - Redbook.com

Oatmeal is a low-fat, high-protein superfood that your body digests slowly—meaning you’ll stay satisfied longer—because of all of its bulky soluble fiber. Minchen swears by this easy recipe: Combine 1 cup dry quick oats, 2/3 cup coconut flakes, 1/2 cup almond butter, 1/2 cup whole chia seeds, 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips, 1/3 cup raw honey, and 1 tsp vanilla. Let the mixture cool in the refrigerator for 1 hour in an airtight container, then roll into 1-inch balls, which you can eat throughout the week. - Redbook.com

Registered dietitian Lauren Minchen recommends using paprika not only to flavor this healthy snack, but also to boost your metabolism, reduce your appetite, and lower your blood pressure. Cut a zucchini into thin slices and toss in 1 Tbsp olive oil, sea salt, and pepper. Sprinkle with paprika and bake at 450°F for 25 to 30 minutes. - Redbook.com

These sweetly rich treats may lean more toward the dessert side, but hey, it's the weekend! One warning, though: Not going for seconds and thirds will be very, very difficult. Get the recipe at Cooking Classy.

You already love the cheesy goodness of the classic Mexican dish, so there's no way you wouldn't go crazy over this morning version, too. Just substitute chicken and beef for eggs and sausage, stick in the oven, and go to town with a fork. Get the recipe at Let's Dish. - Redbook.com

An early adopter of the short and sassy look, Halle knows the power of the pixie. Snag her spikes by smoothing a mix of gel and texturizing cream through towel-dried hair. "Apply from roots to ends and blow dry, using fingertips to direct the hair upwards for body and texture," suggests Mapile. Use a texturing paste to detail and finish with a mist of hairspray. - Redbook.com

Forget that the in-laws are coming over for brunch? Don't panic: You can put together this easy flaky, buttery croissant and egg dish in a half hour. Get the recipe at Jo Cooks. - Redbook.com

Sure, you've made pancakes and eggs before, but not like this. Using a potato base with garlic and spinach mix-ins breaks you out of a breakfast rut, while the poached egg takes it to a gourmet level—no fancy ingredients required. Get the Recipe at The Kitchen Paper. - Redbook.com

There's nothing kiddie-party about helium balloons if they light up the night. Buy mini LEDs from party-supply stores like partycity.com—they cost less than a buck each and last about eight hours—and pop one in the bottom of each balloon when you blow it up. Group a few together to maximize the starlit effect.

"Snazz up store-bought lemonade by adding frozen blueberries or strawberries to each glass," says event planner Dabney Lee. "They're prettier than ice cubes and add great flavor without watering down your drink." Flag your straws. Take a small piece of washi tape, double it over a straw, and you've got a colorful accent in less than a minute. "They're adorable and help guests keep track of their drinks," says blogger Helena Schaeder Söderberg of Craft and Creativity.

Serve gourmet chips without hiring a fancy caterer: Just warm plain packaged Kettle Chips or Cape Cod Potato Chips in the oven to release their oils, then toss with your favorite seasonings. Food Network star Michael Chiarello likes smoked paprika and chipotle powder. Brown-bag it. Serve snacks in paper lunch bags. Snip off the tops and (if you want to get fancy) wrap them with colorful butcher's twine, then fill with chips or fresh fruit. "They're easy to grab and walk around with," says New York City–based event planner and blogger Amy Atlas. "Plus, it's one less dish you have to do."

Take a roll of brown kraft paper and run it the length of your table: Not only does it have a rustic-chic appeal, it's also cheap and can go straight into the recycling bin when you're done. If you've got time (or want to keep the kids out of your hair with a craft project), "paint on it," suggests style expert Robert Verdi. "Do something simple like polka dots or go all out and trace the place settings. You can even write out guests' names or initials in lieu of place cards. But don't worry about being perfect—it's supposed to look handmade." Steal from the garden. Huge floral arrangements can look luxe, but you'll get the same bang for zero bucks by using greens clipped from your backyard. "I hosted a small dinner party and didn't have a lot of time or money to spend," says Becca Gorski, an event planner and the blogger behind Cake Events & Design. "So I cut a few branches from each of the different trees in our yard and laid them down the middle of my table as a centerpiece."

Have fun mixing and matching colors and prints; there are tons of styles available online for about $1 a pop—we found cute ones at orientaltrading.com. (After the party's over, give them to the kids for their cowboy and stagecoach-robber costumes.)

Adding volume to the sides of the hair is a no-no for women with round faces. Mila Kunis' more tamed style and length perfectly accentuate the roundness of her face rather than hiding it. To get this look, just flat iron hair until it's totally straight, then add essential oil for extra shine.
