Caramelized Onion and Blue Cheese Grilled Pizza

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 »


Bow Tie Pasta with Chicken and Asparagus in Lemon-Cheese Sauce

It’s finally springtime and our faithful root vegetables have done their job and gotten us through the tough winter months. Now, bright green vegetables are popping up all over grocery store produce aisles, with fresh asparagus being one of my all-time favorites. I love to roast it, keep it raw and shave it into salads, steam it and grill it. I even grow it in my garden just to have my own supply in the early months of the season. This Bow Tie Pasta with Chicken and Asparagus in Lemon-Cheese Sauce is another way that I like to incorporate asparagus in a light, good-for-you pasta dish. Read More »


Southwestern Baked Pasta

I think casseroles were invented for busy people – and rightly so. They’re easy to put together, use a minimal number of dishes and generally make enough food for more than one meal. This Southwestern Baked Pasta fits all of those descriptors, and it certainly tastes great. The bonus item with this casserole is that it’s healthier for you than most traditional casseroles because it’s made with Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Penne Pasta. If you’re like me and shy away from spicy foods, never fear; this recipe has all of the warm flavors of Southwestern food, but isn’t the least bit spicy – especially when you dollop a little sour cream on top. On the other hand, if you‘d like a little more heat, you can adjust the spiciness without any trouble. Read More »


Chocolate Studded Oatmeal Bars

When it comes to home baking, quality ingredients make all the difference. Take these Chocolate Studded Oatmeal Bars, for example. They’re made with Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour and Scharffen Berger Semisweet Chocolate Chunks. Sure they would be good with run-of-the-mill flour and chocolate chips, but my philosophy has always been that if you’re going to take the time to make something from scratch, you want it to turn out great. Therefore, start with great ingredients. Because these bars include Hodgson Mill whole wheat flour (the entire bran and germ are stone ground, preserving all of the grain’s natural nutrients and great taste) and 62% cacao chocolate chunks; they’re immediately transformed into something so much better than your average cookie. Read More »


Whole Wheat Fettuccine with Portobello Mushrooms, Caramelized Onions and Goat Cheese

I have a new favorite pasta dish – Whole Wheat Fettuccine with Portobello Mushrooms, Caramelized Onions and Goat Cheese. You could probably call the recipe Stinky Sneakers with Portobello Mushrooms, Caramelized Onions and Goat Cheese and it wouldn’t matter one bit to me – the combination of the latter three ingredients tastes that amazing. Of course, to help make this meatless meal more substantial and healthier, I opted to use Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Fettuccine – rather than stinky sneakers.J The benefits you get from eating whole wheat are hard to pass up. Here’s one more to consider: there are a whopping 54 grams of protein in each box.  Read More »


Apple Pie Crumb Bars

Soccer season has started and we’ve had to surrender our schedules to keep up with practices and games for two of our girls. Now we love soccer – my husband is even a coach – and we support our girls and their teams 100 percent, but it is harder to find time to bake on the weekends now. That doesn’t stop us from wanting dessert though – namely apple pie. This recipe for Apple Pie Crumb Bars is quicker to put together than traditional apple pie and it includes Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Pastry Flour, so it’s a healthier way to get our dessert fix, too. Read More »

Does grilling pizza scare you a little? Have some fear of the crust sliding through the cracks of the grill and going up in flames? I promise, cross my heart, that grilling pizza is easy. Making your own crust is easy, too – trust me. Grab a bag of Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour and Hodgson Mill Best for Bread Flour and come along with me. Read More »


Zucchini-Chocolate Chip Muffins

Part of the reason I like to grow zucchini is to make this muffin recipe. The combination of Hodgson Mill Naturally White Flour, Hodgson Mill White Whole Wheat, shredded zucchini, mini chocolate chips and toasted walnuts makes for a perfect breakfast or snack muffin. They are light, not overly sweet, yet satisfying and I love the tiny bursts of chocolate in each bite. My kids, who are not always squash fans, even think they taste great. Now I get to start their day off, and mine, with healthy whole grains AND green vegetables. Not something that happens normally – trust me. Read More »


Whole Wheat Couscous with Lemon, Peas and Chives

I think part of the reason this recipe went over so well is because I used Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Couscous with Milled Flax Seed and Soy. The added flax and soy give the couscous a little more texture, not to mention the added health benefits. Foods that are mushy, like avocados, are not my husband’s favorites. So I wanted to make sure I packed this dish with as much flavor and crunch as possible. Onions, garlic, fresh chives and lemon get things off to a great start and sweet peas and toasted sliced almonds finish things up with bright color and the little bit of extra crunch I was looking for. Read More »


Whole Wheat Bow Tie Pasta with Arugula, Walnuts and Browned Butter

As you can probably tell from this post Holly’s Summertime Garden Pasta Salad and this post Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad that Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Bow Tie Pasta is one of my favorites to cook with. The flavor is mild and easily replaces white flour pasta, without changing the taste of a dish, and many times improves it. This Whole Wheat Pasta with Arugula, Walnuts and Browned Butter is a perfect example of how to include whole wheat pasta in a great meal for dinner. Read More »
