Description: Ah, the weekend . . . time to unwind . . . time to get together with family and friends. What better way to celebrate these precious two days off than with good food and wine enjoyed in an unencumbered setting? And who better than Michael McLaughlin to bring us a cookbook designed to meet all our weekend cooking needs? 

Beginning with "Saturday Lunch" and ending with "Later on Sunday," Cooking for the Weekend provides year-round suggestions for cooking up fabulous food for the weekend: 48 menus built around 175 recipes for all seasons and any occasion, from a fancy Saturday night dinner party to a casual Sunday brunch. These are recipes that will transform an ordinary Saturday and Sunday into the best two days of the week: main courses such as Deep-Fried Ravioli with Red Pepper Mayonnaise, Dijon Ragout of Chicken and Vegetables, and Roast Leg of Lamb with Caramelized Shallots; informal fare like Spicy Sausage, Pepper, and Black Bean Calzones, Crab Cake Sandwiches, and Warm Barbecued Chicken Salad; Maple-Walnut Sticky Buns and Honey-Oat Waffles with Raspberries and Ricotta for breakfast or brunch; and tempting desserts such as Orange-Glazed Raspberry Loaf Cake and Deep-Dish Cranberry Apple Pie. 

McLaughlin gives his time-tested strategies for organizing your weekend cooking, including do-ahead advice as well as suggestions for using leftovers wisely. And for those days when you have extra time or extra hands in the kitchen, McLaughlin offers what he calls "Happy Hands" recipes: Cider Doughnuts with Maple-Cream Icing, Spiced Cranberry Jam, and Cherry-Almond Granola. There's even a section of quick and easy Friday night suppers, appropriately titled TGIF, for those times when you get an early jump on the weekend.
