Cherry-Chocolate Whole Wheat Bread

This recipe for Cherry-Chocolate Whole Wheat Bread begins with a box of Hodgson Mill Honey Whole Wheat Bread Mix. The lightly sweet, whole wheat dough is the perfect background for the tart, brandy-soaked cherries and milk chocolate chunks. And Hodgson Mill uses all-natural ingredients in all of its products including this bread mix, so my from-scratch mantra is intact – just simplified. I love it when that happens. 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 »


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 »


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 »


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 »


Banana-Nut Whole Wheat Cookies with Maple Icing

I found this recipe for Banana-Nut Whole Wheat Cookies with Maple Icing a while back but I never seemed to have brown bananas around when I had time to bake. Well, low and behold, the fruit basket offered up some over-ripe bananas the other day. It just so happened that it was nap time and my schedule was free, so out came the mixing bowl and I was ready to go. I opted to make these cookies, versus banana bread or Banana Pecan Cake with Warm Chocolate Sauce – traditional brown banana outlets in my family, because this recipe intrigued me in several ways. First, the banana is mixed with the butter, chilled and then cut into the flour – like a crumb topping or pie crust. Second, it uses 100% Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour in the dough – no white flour at all. And third, it calls for a maple icing on top – not a flavor I had combined with bananas before. I love it when a recipe gets me thinking and gives me new ideas to try. 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 »


Summer Harvest Pasta with Mascarpone Meatballs

We’re settling into September, but that doesn’t mean garden fresh produce should be hard to find. Late summer is all about zucchini, peppers, tomatoes and eggplant – all of which are in this flavorful Summer Harvest Pasta with Mascarpone Meatballs. The array of fresh vegetables in this recipe is the first thing that caught my attention. I loved the idea of incorporating all of them into a delicious sauce to serve over Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Bow Tie Pasta. The second thing that piqued my interest – and got my mouth watering – was the thought of making mascarpone meatballs. If you’re not familiar with mascarpone, it’s an Italian style cream cheese- not quite as tangy as American cream cheese – more velvety smooth and heavier on the cream side. It’s a bit of a gourmet ingredient and this was the first time I had seen it incorporated into something like a meatball. Being the foodie that I am, I was excited to find out what these meatballs would taste like – especially with such a delicious sauce to back them up. Off to the kitchen I went. Read More »


Crock Pot Apple Pie Steel Cut Oats

This recipe was just too easy to pass up – not to mention all of the health benefits I would be serving up by using Hodgson Mill Steel Cut Oats. Fifteen grams of protein alone from the oats and more from the milk and walnuts added on top – this was going to be a delicious, healthy way to start our day. Read More »
