5. Rustic Cherry Galette

Instead of getting drinks with the boys, preheat your oven, turn on Gilmore Girls, and send the "I'm not going to make it tonight" text you have been planning all week. You might miss out on a friend hilariously falling off the bar, but you'll end up with a killer cherry galette instead.

Try your hardest to sound convincingly disappointed when you cancel your plans to bake this red velvet beauty instead. Gotta put those acting lessons to use somehow...

7. Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Bars

Put your sweats on, preheat your oven, and get some chocolate melting for the most enjoyable Saturday night you've had all year. Get wild and take a shot of Nyquil while you're at it. Why not?
