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 »


Bow Tie Pasta with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Quality becomes important when preparing a simple pasta recipe like this, so splurge a little and buy high-end canned tomatoes and sausage if you can. Using Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Bow Tie Pasta is another way to incorporate quality into this dish and is healthier for you than regular white flour pastas. My children are not always fans of whole wheat pasta, but Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Bow Tie Pasta has a mild taste and pretty much goes unnoticed whenever I serve it. Also, once the noodles are covered in this delicious sauce they becomes so tasty that no one stops to notice the whole grains I’ve snuck onto their plates. Read More »


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 »

Pomegranate-Spiced Couscous

This pomegranate-spiced couscous recipe is wonderful. It’s filled with tart pomegranate seeds, sweet golden raisins, warm spices, a sprinkling of cilantro and nutritious Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Couscous. It’s bright, flavorful, good for you, and can be ready in five minutes. It pretty much checks off all the things I look for in a great recipe.

Brown Sugar Cinnamon Waffles with Blueberry-Maple Sauce

They are super tasty on their own with a little butter and maple syrup, but even better served with some blueberry maple sauce (see recipe below).

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 »
