Quick Apple Blackberry Stove-Top Cobbler

This is a great variation on a classic cobbler because it comes together quickly and won’t heat your kitchen up as much as the oven will, since it just uses one stove top burner. It's good to have a box of Hodgson Mill Insta-Bake Mix handy, so homemade pancakes, biscuits, and cobblers are possible at the drop of a hat. Read More »

Take what you love most about blondies – their simplicity and moist, delicious goodness – and make them a little healthier. Add more whole grains, chunks of baked apple and super-healthy flaxseed to keep them moist, plus some butterscotch chips for sweetness. Read More »

Nothing warms you up on a cold winter’s night like a bowl of hot soup.

Each serving of soup is topped with a mixture of toasted breadcrumbs, parsley, lemon zest, and more Parmesan cheese. It’s hearty, healthy and oh, so tasty. 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 »


Pumpkin Pie Pinwheels

Pumpkin Pie Pinwheels – say that ten times fast. Tongue twister or not, these cookies are like little bites of pumpkin pie. Buttery, whole wheat dough is wrapped around a pumpkin pie filling and then sliced and baked into tender, slightly crunchy cookies. To get the full Thanksgiving effect, a pumpkin glaze is drizzled over the top. Make room at the dessert table for these cookies – they definitely deserve a spot. 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 »


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 »


Summer Harvest Pasta with Mascarpone Meatballs

We’re settling into September, but that doesn’t mean garden fresh produce should be hard to find. Late summer is all about zucchini, peppers, tomatoes and eggplant – all of which are in this flavorful Summer Harvest Pasta with Mascarpone Meatballs. The array of fresh vegetables in this recipe is the first thing that caught my attention. I loved the idea of incorporating all of them into a delicious sauce to serve over Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Bow Tie Pasta. The second thing that piqued my interest – and got my mouth watering – was the thought of making mascarpone meatballs. If you’re not familiar with mascarpone, it’s an Italian style cream cheese- not quite as tangy as American cream cheese – more velvety smooth and heavier on the cream side. It’s a bit of a gourmet ingredient and this was the first time I had seen it incorporated into something like a meatball. Being the foodie that I am, I was excited to find out what these meatballs would taste like – especially with such a delicious sauce to back them up. Off to the kitchen I went. Read More »
