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 »
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.

Night and day, muffin, you are the one . . . .
Now that it’s getting even darker and colder outside, I’ve been thinking about this muffin. And a tropical beach. But I digress…. I thought, ‘I can make that muffin! I’ll focus on the tropical flavors, and add a little texture with Hodgson Mill Multi Grain Cereal with Flaxseed and Soy.’ Read More »
Hodgson Mill Multi Grain Hot Cereal with Milled Flaxseed & Soy is even better when I turn it into Blueberry Swirl Multi Grain Hot Cereal with Milled Flaxseed & Soy. I think it takes longer to say the name than it takes to actually make. It’s so easy. It’s not even really a recipe-more like a nudge in the blueberry direction. But that’s what’s so perfect about this breakfast: easy, healthy, fast and delicious. Read More »
