The bread has a light texture and tender crumb that is accentuated by the old-fashioned rolled oats and Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour I added. To make this more of a breakfast bread, I sprinkled a layer of cinnamon sugar on the dough and rolled it up so that each toasted slice would have a delicious cinnamon spiral in the middle. The other great part about this bread recipe is that it makes two loaves at a time; one to eat and one to freeze for later. Read More »

Fresh strawberries are flooding the supermarkets and I couldn’t be happier. Finally, after waiting through an eternal winter, warm weather has arrived and with it red, ripe strawberries. I realize most grocery stores carry strawberries year ‘round, but it’s not until late spring that the inside of the berry is as red as the outside – something only longer daylight hours and bright sunshine can produce.
In celebration of this first fruit of summer, I decided to try out a new muffin recipe: Roasted Strawberry Whole Wheat Muffins. These muffins are lightly sweet, have a delicate, almost cake-like crumb and do a great job of showcasing roasted strawberries.
I’ve roasted pears, apples and bananas in the past, but this was my first time roasting strawberries and I’m happy to report that they’re wonderful. Instead of roasting them at a high heat, in this recipe they’re slow roasted at a low temperature thus creating sweet, sticky, jammy berries that are lick-your-fingers good. Read More »
Fresh mozzarella cheese laden with robust, red tomatoes and fresh basil is one of my favorite summer food combinations.

This Fresh Tomato Mozzarella Basil Tart is another great way to enjoy these flavors in a whole wheat crust that includes fresh basil and garlic mixed directly into the dough. Yum! Read More »
