Grilled pizza is one of our favorite summer meals and this Caramelized Onion and Blue Cheese Grilled Pizza was a big hit. The sweet caramelized onions, toasted walnuts and blue cheese went perfectly together on top of a whole wheat crust that became crispy and smoky-flavored from our barbeque grill. We enjoyed this pizza as a light dinner, but it would also make a great appetizer if you have a crowd to feed. Read More »

Fresh strawberries are flooding the supermarkets and I couldn’t be happier. Finally, after waiting through an eternal winter, warm weather has arrived and with it red, ripe strawberries. I realize most grocery stores carry strawberries year ‘round, but it’s not until late spring that the inside of the berry is as red as the outside – something only longer daylight hours and bright sunshine can produce.
In celebration of this first fruit of summer, I decided to try out a new muffin recipe: Roasted Strawberry Whole Wheat Muffins. These muffins are lightly sweet, have a delicate, almost cake-like crumb and do a great job of showcasing roasted strawberries.
I’ve roasted pears, apples and bananas in the past, but this was my first time roasting strawberries and I’m happy to report that they’re wonderful. Instead of roasting them at a high heat, in this recipe they’re slow roasted at a low temperature thus creating sweet, sticky, jammy berries that are lick-your-fingers good. Read More »
Hazelnut happens to be one of my favorite flavors, and Nutella® is among one of my favorite ways to enjoy it. I love to slather this chocolate hazelnut butter on whole wheat toast, drizzle it into my steel cut oats or swirl a spoonful into plain yogurt. The combination is simply heavenly. When I came across this recipe for chocolate chip cookies (one of my other favorite foods) that incorporates both Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour and Nutella®, I knew I had to make it. Read More »
Fresh mozzarella cheese laden with robust, red tomatoes and fresh basil is one of my favorite summer food combinations. I grow pots of basil, fill my vegetable garden full of tomato plants and keep fresh mozzarella on hand to have things like caprese salad and pizza margherita whenever the mood strikes – which is quite often. This Fresh Tomato Mozzarella Basil Tart is another great way to enjoy these flavors in a whole wheat crust that includes fresh basil and garlic mixed directly into the dough. Yum! Read More »
With this recipe, I’m taking what I love about blondies – their simplicity and potential for moist, delicious goodness – and making them a little healthier. I’m adding more whole grains, chunks of baked apple and super-healthy flaxseed to keep them moist, plus, some butterscotch chips for sweetness (but not an overpowering amount). Read More »
Now that the weather is cooling off and we’re entering the season for hot soup, I decided to give the traditional recipe for 9 grain bread a little bit of a twist – literally. I served these 9 Grain Bread Mix Parmesan Twists with my Lasagna Soup with Whole Wheat Spiral Pasta and they made one of my favorite meals even better. The bread twists are perfect for dunking and worked better than a spoon when I got to the bottom of my bowl and wanted to sop up the last drops of soup. Read More »
