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 »

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 »

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 »
In this Multi Grain Cereal with Dates, Orange and Cinnamon recipe, Medjool dates are stirred into the hot cereal as it cooks, slowly dissolving into the grains and thereby, along with a bit of honey, adding sweetness to the recipe. Once the cereal has finished cooking (in about 3 minutes), some orange zest and juice and a dash of cinnamon are swirled into the pot to make things even more flavorful. A drizzle of honey, along with a few diced dates and a sprinkling of sliced almonds goes on top right before serving, making for a very fast, healthy and delicious breakfast that, thanks to all the healthy grains, will easily hold you until lunch. That’s great for kids at school as well as adults who would rather not have to head to the snack machine hours before lunch. Read More »
