It’s the weekend! What’s cooking? We’re planning a mini-festival of quick dinner recipes this weekend, as we close out our Quick Weeknight Meals contest over the next three days. We received far too many recipes to post them all during the contest, but we’ll bring you the best for you to vote on over the weekend and Monday. Meanwhile, here are a few highlights from the past week.

• Have you tried out a recipe from all the Quick Weeknight Meals entries yet? There are a ton of great dinner recipes in there…

• Who actually owns your favorite organic brands? Map it out here.

Kitchen ideas from Ina Garten, plus 7 lovely Swedish kitchens and a tiny yet opulent NYC kitchen that belongs to an opera star.

• Two new favorite fall desserts: Peach and cornmeal upside-down cake and plum crumble.

• Do you remember to taste?

• How to make a Starbucks-style Pumpkin Spice Latte at home! Plus another copycat recipe: Nutri-Grain-style fruit and nut bars.

Eggs over easy, and eggs sunny-side up — what’s the difference?

• The truth about skunked beer.

• Need more counter space? Get an over-the-sink cutting board. Also, hang a spice rack with a ruler.

Have a great weekend, and don’t forget to visit and vote for your favorite Quick Weeknight Meals entries over Saturday and Sunday.
