The Recipes You Need To Cook This Weekend

You've earned it.

The weekend is a few hours away, which means it's prime time to start thinking about all the delicious food you're going to consume in the next two days. Whether you had a breezy week or a difficult one, we know you've more than earned your weekend. It's time to relax and indulge.

Either way, we've got you covered. Here are 11 recipes we suggest you consider cooking this weekend. They run the gamut from breakfast to late-night snack material, so you'll be able to fit more than one of these in if you play your cards right.
