Zucchini-Chocolate Chip Muffins

Part of the reason I like to grow zucchini is to make this muffin recipe. The combination of Hodgson Mill Naturally White Flour, Hodgson Mill White Whole Wheat, shredded zucchini, mini chocolate chips and toasted walnuts makes for a perfect breakfast or snack muffin. They are light, not overly sweet, yet satisfying and I love the tiny bursts of chocolate in each bite. My kids, who are not always squash fans, even think they taste great. Now I get to start their day off, and mine, with healthy whole grains AND green vegetables. Not something that happens normally – trust me. Read More »


Lemon Crumb Bars

I mixed half Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Pastry Flour and half Hodgson Mill Naturally White All Purpose Flour for the crust/crumble part, so not only are these treats delicious, they’re better for you than your typical lemon bar. Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Pastry Flour is easy to substitute in any recipe. It’s pretty much a one-to-one ratio, whole wheat to white flour, so feel free to experiment making your favorite recipes healthier. Read More »


Steak and Salsa Verde Pasta (aka “Spaghetti Western”)

I don’t know if I succeeded with my "Spaghetti Western" idea, but I’m happy with where the experiment took me. After a couple of tries, I’ve got a dish with healthy whole wheat pasta, plenty of lean protein from a local farmer, fresh local tomatoes, and loads of super-healthy fresh herbs, so I’m pretty much happy on all fronts—taste, health, and food-consciousness. Read More »


Whole Wheat Couscous with Lemon, Peas and Chives

I think part of the reason this recipe went over so well is because I used Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Couscous with Milled Flax Seed and Soy. The added flax and soy give the couscous a little more texture, not to mention the added health benefits. Foods that are mushy, like avocados, are not my husband’s favorites. So I wanted to make sure I packed this dish with as much flavor and crunch as possible. Onions, garlic, fresh chives and lemon get things off to a great start and sweet peas and toasted sliced almonds finish things up with bright color and the little bit of extra crunch I was looking for. Read More »


Plum Orange Anise Breakfast Cake with Multigrain Cereal

I think this one is the perfect level of sweetness for morning – tart, baked plums nestle into the soft fragrant cake; almost like a bread pudding. The Whole Wheat Pastry Flour and Multi Grain Cereal give it a pleasant granola-like texture, but without the crunch, if that makes sense. Every bite is just interesting. Read More »


Grilled Pizza with Caramelized Onions, Sausage and Cheese

Not only are these toppings completely delicious, but the crust is, too. Hodgson Mill Rye Flour as well as some Hodgson Mill Corn Meal is mixed into the dough to add extra flavor and crunch. Don’t worry if you’re not a big rye flour fan; it does a good job of highlighting the smoky flavor you get from cooking on the grill and isn’t noticeable otherwise. Cooking pizza on the grill is not hard. Impressive – Yes. Hard – No. The key to success is to have everything prepared before you start grilling. As luck would have it, all of these ingredients can be fixed as early as the day before – even the crust – which I promise is not hard to make, either. Read More »


Whole Wheat Trail Mix Cookies

All of our favorite things like M&M’s, peanut butter chips, salty roasted almonds and sweet golden raisins get mixed together in a delicious cookie dough made with Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour, Hodgson Mill All Purpose Naturally White Flour and old-fashioned rolled oats. Read More »


Whole Wheat Spaghetti with Basil, Shrimp and Bacon

This dish is easy and delicious – the perfect combination when it comes to dinner. Do yourself a favor and buy the EZ Peel shrimp (the kind that’s been cleaned and only need the shells slipped off) to make this meal even easier. Do yourself another favor and buy a box of Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Thin Spaghetti. The whole wheat pasta compliments all of the other flavors going on in the dish without overpowering them. Chances are, you’ll be able to sneak in some healthy whole wheat without it being noticed which makes adding whole grains to your diet a piece of cake – or a bowl of pasta – in this case Read More »


Whole Wheat Bow Tie Pasta with Arugula, Walnuts and Browned Butter

As you can probably tell from this post Holly’s Summertime Garden Pasta Salad and this post Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad that Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Bow Tie Pasta is one of my favorites to cook with. The flavor is mild and easily replaces white flour pasta, without changing the taste of a dish, and many times improves it. This Whole Wheat Pasta with Arugula, Walnuts and Browned Butter is a perfect example of how to include whole wheat pasta in a great meal for dinner. Read More »


Dill Pickle Brioche Burger Buns

I got ambitious in the early-summer heat wave and made these lightly crusty, half-whole-wheat buns studded with chunks of dill pickle and onion, and covered with sesame seeds. I think you’ll find they have a knack for enveloping a burger (and all its trimmings) with tender loving care, and they’ll make you want to eat every last bite—even if there’s more bun than burger. Now THAT’S saying something. Read More »
