Our solution to pushing through the final days of tax season is some soul-nourishing food. We're so close! Take a quick break from wrangling W2s, tracking down I099s, and filing your heart out by making one, or all, of these dishes. Our solutions for surviving tax season: dessert for breakfast, cocktail for lunch, cookies for snacks, and a steak. Let's call it brain fuel.
So, start with pie or ice cream for breakfast:

Go on a bit of a cookie baking, and eating, binge:

Then bake a cake. (It's sustenance, not procrastination.)

Then again, maybe steak is better fuel—you know, for math.
