Our top picks for cooking this weekend

Healthy and delicious recipes and inspiration from some of our favorite sites.

Cinnamon Almond Baked Oatmeal

TheHealthyApple.com

Warm, crunchy, tart and sweet. An indulgent way to wake up this weekend. Amie’s recipe is gluten free, dairy free, vegan and soy-free, and packed with flavor and nutrition.

Butter Hummus

HomeMadeMommy.net

Try this delicious hummus recipe, made with butter.  The recipe starts with whole, dried chickpeas instead of canned. Cans are often lined with BPA.  Starting with organic dried chickpeas allows you to soak them yourself and coax out maximum flavor.

Pomelo Noodles

101Cookbooks.com

A simple, healthy lunch of noodles, salad greens and edamame, dressed in peanuts and pomelo.  We love salad greens in noodles, and it’s a bright contrast to winter cooked vegetables.

Harvest Crackers with Rosemary, Cranberries and Pecan

TheKitchn.com

These crackers are absolutely delicious with cheese. Make extra for hostess gifts or to bring to weekend gatherings.
