Gluten Free Plum Anise Bar Cookies

Crispy on the outside, soft and delicate and crumbly on the inside, with chewy bits of dried plum and a light sweet anise perfume—these little morsels fit the bill for any holiday gifting. It’s almost like shortbread, crumbly and sweet, but the moist fruit is a delicious surprise inside. Read More »


Coconut Custard Pie with Whole Grain Crust

Custard pie is a natural for breakfast (or any other time, for that matter). It’s even more of a natural when you replace the sugar with maple syrup, and surround it with this delicious, nutty-tasting whole-grain crust. Deep and earthy Hodgson Mill Rye Flour and the subtle sweetness of Hodgson Mill Oat Bran Cereal and Whole Wheat Pastry Flour are balanced with just the right amount of butter, making a crisp, melt-in-your-mouth crust that cradles the cool, custardy coconut filling. Read More »


Savory Sweet Potato and Cannelini Bean Pie with Whole Wheat Olive Oil Crust

I’ve been experimenting. My philosophy is, start with good ingredients that you love, and whatever you make can’t be all bad. (Within reason: I’m not advocating for shrimp in chocolate sauce or anything.) But how about sweet potatoes, with rosemary and goat cheese? Sign me up. I knew I was getting close to something great with this pie when one of my taste testers said, “Oh, wow. I could eat this several times a day.” Whoohoo! Read More »


Butternut Squash Macaroni and Cheese

I’ve combined two of my favorite comfort foods – mac and cheese, and roasted butternut squash. I love how the butternut squash adds tons of Vitamin A and C, along with extra creaminess and its bright orange color, to the sauce. The delicious Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Elbow Macaroni (Or Gluten-Free Brown Rice Elbows, if you prefer) are much more robust and better for you than regular white flour pasta elbows, and they really grab onto the cheesy, creamy sauce. It’s truly a feast for all the senses. Read More »


Gluten Free Apple Butter Pancakes

First I tried making pancakes with my first half gallon of the season’s apple cider. The apple taste was just too subtle for me. I wanted all the goodness of sweet, delicious, spicy, baked apples, plus all the awesomeness of pancakes. Instead of apple cider, I picked up a jar of apple butter from a local orchard –hmm, apple fortified with apples? Yes. This delivers for me. Read More »


Easy Homemade Polenta: A How-To

Polenta to the rescue! It’s simple to make, as long as you have some time to pay attention, but once you’ve got a batch, it makes a perfect base for many dishes and sauces — including my farmer’s market largesse. It’s also a tasty alternative to pasta, so I like to use it to shake up my routine. I especially love the contrast of the bright, smooth, melt-in-your-mouth polenta, a sprinkling of rich, nutty parmesan cheese and a twist of black pepper against fresh crisp vegetables and tangy tomato sauce. I’m also amazed that it’s only three ingredients — stone-ground Hodgson Mill Corn Meal, water, and salt — I thought there must be something more to it. I was wrong. Deliciously wrong. Read More »


Lime Yogurt Breakfast Cake with Margarita Glaze

Crunching through the salty-sweet glaze into the moist crumbliness of this yogurt cake fragrant with vanilla and lime is a great start to any day, believe me. A healthy helping of both Greek yogurt and Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour ensures that you don’t get hungry too long before lunch, either. Read More »


Rustic Rosemary Whole Wheat Garlic Bread

Sometimes you just need to bake. Despite the hot weather, the need to knead just won’t go away. Besides, when you have a pasta dish like Summer Harvest Pasta with Mascarpone Meatballs in the works, a great bread companion just makes sense. This is where Rustic Rosemary Whole Wheat Garlic Bread comes into the picture. It’s filled with Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour, Hodgson Mill Naturally White Flour, Hodgson Mill Active Dry Yeast, fresh rosemary and minced garlic – and it makes two loaves which helps justify heating up the house when it’s hot out.  Read More »


End of Summer Zucchini Cilantro with Whole Wheat Angel Hair Pasta

This is one of the quickest recipes I’ve ever made. Just seven ingredients, half of which can be found at the farm stand (zucchini, cilantro, shallots, and cherry tomatoes), and it will be on the table in under 30 minutes, with only 10 minutes of stove time. Read More »


Wholesome Whole Wheat Summer Peach Cobbler

Fruit desserts are hard to beat in the summer. There’s something about having beautiful, ripe fruit mixed and baked with a few extra ingredients that turns it into something really special. Not only is this cobbler delicious, it’s easy to put together and incorporates some Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Pastry Flour.  Read More »
