Double Chocolate Whole Wheat Whoopie Pies

I can’t begin to tell you how much my children love these whoopie pies. The attraction began with the chocolate cookie layers (they are my kids after all) and the pink frosting and sprinkles sealed the deal. Several sticky mouthfuls later, and a new cookie relationship was born. I can’t say I blame my kids – I think these taste great, too. And the cute cookies have been a requested afternoon snack for the past few days. I’m pretty sure I heard a “whoopie” or two as they were being eaten. I didn’t even bother to tell the kids that I had mixed some wholesome Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour into these tasty little treats. The bumped-up nutrition they’re getting in each bite is my happy little secret. Read More »

Banana Pecan Cake With Warm Chocolate Sauce

What can you do with the brown bananas that sit on your counter top? Think tender, sweet, banana-bread-like cake with a cruchy sugar-pecan top. Then picture warm chocolate sauce drizzled over a piece and then swoon a little as you drop a mental dollop of whipped cream on top. As decadent as this sounds, it’s pretty easy and includes a boost in nutrition from Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Pastry Flour. Whole wheat pastry flour is so finely ground that its texture is hardly noticeable in most recipes and is easy to incorporate into this banana cake without any complaints from the little ones. Repurposing over-ripe fruit + whole wheat goodness = cake that tastes great and gets more whole grains onto your plate. Sounds good to me. Read More »


Mom’s Famous Cinnamon Rolls

I’ve been making these cinnamon rolls for more than ten years and have become a bit famous for them with my family, friends and overnight house guests. They are simply wonderful and the epitome of comfort food. What makes these rolls so outstanding is the dough. It all begins with Hodgson Mill Best For Bread Flour. This high protein, high gluten flour allows the dough to become soft, supple and easily manageable. It’s a baker’s delight to work with– not too sticky, not too firm, rolls just right and slices like a dream. As the rolls bake, they turn into tender spirals of sweet, sticky cinnamon heaven. Hot from the oven, a delicious cream cheese frosting is spread on top. Cold January mornings never tasted so good.  Read More »

Brown Sugar Cinnamon Waffles with Blueberry-Maple Sauce

Not only are my kids thrilled to have a delicious hot breakfast, but I can start their day off with good nutrition to boot. Let’s hear it for us Moms! Read More »

But that’s what’s so perfect about this breakfast: easy, healthy, fast and delicious. Read More »
