Whole Wheat Apple Cinnamon Cookies with Browned Butter Frosting

My, oh my – if you’re looking for a great fall cookie recipe I have one for you right here. Filled with Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour, Hodgson Mill Naturally White Flour, fresh apple, oats and cinnamon – these cookies are a fantastic reminder of everything good about the season. Top them with some browned-butter frosting and now we’re at a whole new level- and one to which I’m very happy to go. 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 »


Lasagna Soup with Whole Wheat Spiral Noodles

Nothing welcomes in chilly fall weather like a big bowl of homemade soup, and this lasagna recipe is one of my absolute favorites. It’s filled with sausage, mushrooms, onions, garlic, tomatoes, Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Spirals and fresh spinach. Then when it’s time to eat, you ladle the hot soup over fresh mozzarella cheese. You can’t help but dig for the melted, gooey-like cheesy treasure at the bottom of your bowl. Read More »


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 »
