Whether it's Sunday brunch, dinner with family and friends or an ooey-gooey dessert, weekends are the perfect time to let it all hang out.
Few of us eat dessert or cook five-course meals every day, but weekends are the perfect time for a sexy little splurge. After all, everyone needs an occasional indulgence—something with a decadent edge that takes a little time or extra effort to prepare and is a pleasure to savor. Here are a few of our favorite Saturday-worthy dishes, plus a few Sunday morning breakfast recipes to wrap it up before Monday rolls back around.
