Butterscotch White Whole Wheat Cookies

Ho! Ho! Ho! We’re in full holiday mode at my house and we’ve picked up the pace to bake as many of our favorite cookies as we can before Christmas is over. So many to choose from and so little time left! These Butterscotch White Whole Wheat Cookies were next on our list, and although they may not have a fancy name, they sure make up for it in taste. They’re filled with butterscotch chips and dry-roasted cashews that create a fantastic salty-sweet combination in each bite. You’ll never guess that there’s Hodgson Mill White Whole Wheat Flour in these cookies. The texture, a little more robust than white flour but less hearty than Hodgson Mill’s traditional whole wheat flour, is spot on. Paired with the chopped cashews, the taste is so mild it nearly goes undetected in the buttery, sweet dough. I knew I couldn’t let the season pass without baking up a batch of these tasty cookies! Read More »

Creamy Turkey Lasagna with Spinach and Mushrooms

What’s one of the best parts about Thanksgiving dinner? You got it – the leftovers. I intentionally roast a bigger turkey than we need to make sure that I’ll have plenty of leftovers for sandwiches and to use in other recipes. This Creamy Turkey Lasagna with Spinach and Mushrooms is one of my favorite ways to use leftover turkey. Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Lasagna noodles are layered between a creamy sauce of garlic-herb cheese, leeks, mushrooms, and fresh spinach with roasted turkey, fresh mozzarella and Parmesan scattered throughout. You’ll be just as excited as I am to have leftover turkey after trying this dish. 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 »

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 »

Grilled Vegetable Pasta Salad

To make good use of these grilled vegetables, I’ve come up with a pasta salad that now ranks as one of our new summertime favorite sides. Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Spirals are the basis of this pasta salad and do a great job of catching the vinaigrette in all of their twists and turns. I also like how the whole wheat flavor brings a hearty taste to this grilled vegetable pasta salad. Read More »

This salad always gets rave reviews and the recipe is often requested. People just can’t believe something so simple could taste so delicious, but the proof is in this pasta salad. This recipe makes a lot, so get out your biggest bowl to do your tossing in — otherwise you’ll end up with bits and pieces of salad all over the place.

The noodles do a superior job holding up to the vegetables and add a nice flavor dimension that doesn’t scream “whole wheat.” Plus you will be getting all of the health benefits of whole wheat. I promise you won’t miss the white-flour pasta. Read More »

Blackberry Buttermilk Cake

Truth be told, this blackberry buttermilk cake is a dessert. But it’s made with so many healthy ingredients — Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Pastry Flour, Hodgson Mill Milled Flax Seed, fresh blackberries, and apricot jam — I served it for breakfast. I also made a cinnamon-vanilla yogurt sauce to drizzle over the top for more breakfast appeal — not that my family needs much arm twisting to eat cake first thing in the morning. Read More »

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 »
