Holly’s Summertime Garden Pasta Salad

One of my girls requested grilled pineapple and chicken kabobs, so the main dish was taken care of, but I needed something to round out the meal. The winter in St. Louis was so mild this year that most all of my herbs managed to stay alive in the pots on my deck. They’ve been greening up and leafing out all over the place for weeks and I have been itching to have a reason to use them. This sweet bell pepper, lemon, herb, feta and Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Bow Tie Pasta salad was the perfect answer. It’s quick, full of flavor, made good use of my fresh herbs and went perfectly with the grilled chicken we were having. I love it when things work out this way! Read More »


Whole Wheat Monkey Bread

Monkey bread – I’m not sure where the name comes from, but it sure is tasty! I’ve known about Monkey bread for a long time – mostly from friends who make it with a can of biscuit dough, but being a “from scratch” type of girl, I never made it. Once you’re from scratch – it’s hard to go back. I also knew there had to be a way to make the gooey, cinnamon roll-like bread, healthier – in comes Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour to the rescue! I made the dough for this bread with a full cup of whole wheat flour as well as some Hodgson Mill All Natural All Purpose Flour to round things out. Don’t worry – butter and sugar are still a part of this monkey bread. My kids have even asked when we’re making it again, so the homemade, whole grain version passed the little people test in my house. That’s reason enough to give this recipe a try. Who needs a can of biscuits? Not us – let’s get baking!  Read More »


Simple Maple Blueberry Loaf Cake with Maple Glaze

As soon as I saw this recipe I knew it would be perfect for Easter Sunday brunch. It combines two great flavors, blueberries and maple (think pancakes) with a healthy serving of Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour and Hodgson Mill All Natural All Purpose Flour along with some other easy to come-by ingredients all together in a lovely loaf cake. This recipe is also simple to make. I had everything mixed and the cake in the oven in about 10 minutes – perfect for a hectic Easter morning with egg hunts and excited children bouncing around. Read More »


Hodgson Mill Easy Crunchy Cinnamon Wheat Germ Granola

Back in December I shared my favorite Hodgson Mill winter breakfast, Blueberry Swirl Multi-Grain Hot Cereal with Milled Flaxseed and Soy, that I eat when the weather is cold and I need a hot, healthy start to my day. Well, now that the sun is warming things up and the windows are open, it’s time to switch over to my favorite summer breakfast- a creamy bowl of yogurt topped with a drizzle of honey, a handful of raspberries or strawberries and a generous scoop of the best granola ever- Hodgson Mill Crunchy Cinnamon Wheat Germ Granola. Read More »


English Muffin Bread with Quick Homemade Strawberry Preserves

If you are a fan of the circular English muffins that come from the grocery store, you will love this bread even more. It has all of the same English muffin taste wrapped up into simple, good-for-you, whole wheat yeast bread. One of the best parts about this bread is that it only needs to rise once, so it takes half the time to make than a traditional yeast bread recipe. It also makes two loaves – a total bonus in my book. You can choose to eat one loaf right away and freeze the other for another time, or like in my house, the day after the first loaf is devoured.  Read More »


Whole Wheat Penne with Roasted Butternut Squash and Bacon

Spring is around the corner and flowers are starting to bloom. But before we all get out our barbeque grills and abandon our ovens, I urge you to roast some butternut squash and put together this pasta dish. It’s easy, delicious and full of good nutrition – from the many benefits squash contributes to all of the healthful goodness whole grains bring to the table in the Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Penne. Besides, it has bacon in it. Read More »


Apples & More Muesli Breakfast Cookies

Cookies for breakfast. Sounds like a good idea to me; especially if they have oatmeal in them because then it’s practically like eating cereal, right? Well, you’re in luck! These cookies do have cereal in them – Hodgson Mill Apples & More Muesli which is made up of delicious ingredients like sweet apple chunks, raisins, oats, sunflower seeds and flax seed just to mention a few. If that didn’t whet your appetite, these cookies also have whole wheat, quinoa, honey, dried cranberries and slivered almonds. When all is said and done, these breakfast cookies are so loaded with healthy ingredients they can’t help but be good for you. Read More »


Whole Wheat Pasta with Roasted Tomatoes, Caramelized Onions and Feta Cheese

I used Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Egg Noodles in this recipe for their taste and to provide some extra protein since this dish falls into the meatless category. They also hold up really well with the thick roasted tomato and caramelized onion sauce. Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Egg Noodles aren’t like traditional egg noodles. They are a thick cut, short, rectangular shape – much more like homemade egg noodles than their distant cousin – the flimsy, ruffled, white flour egg noodle. I don’t think this dish would be nearly as good without them. Read More »


Cherry-Chocolate Whole Wheat Bread

Nope this is not a dessert. This was my breakfast this morning; a lightly toasted slice of whole wheat bread with chocolate chunks and cherries with a smear of whipped cream cheese and fresh raspberries on top. I ate it all – every last whole wheat crumb. It was delicious and guilt-free since it’s made with Hodgson Mill White Whole Wheat Flour as well as cherries - which fall squarely into the “good for you” category. Read More »
