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 »


Rustic Rosemary Whole Wheat Garlic Bread

Sometimes you just need to bake. Despite the hot weather, the need to knead just won’t go away. Besides, when you have a pasta dish like Summer Harvest Pasta with Mascarpone Meatballs in the works, a great bread companion just makes sense. This is where Rustic Rosemary Whole Wheat Garlic Bread comes into the picture. It’s filled with Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour, Hodgson Mill Naturally White Flour, Hodgson Mill Active Dry Yeast, fresh rosemary and minced garlic – and it makes two loaves which helps justify heating up the house when it’s hot out.  Read More »

Making your own crust is easy, too – trust me. Grab a bag of Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour and Hodgson Mill Best for Bread Flour and come along with me. Read More »


Zucchini-Chocolate Chip Muffins

Part of the reason I like to grow zucchini is to make this muffin recipe. The combination of Hodgson Mill Naturally White Flour, Hodgson Mill White Whole Wheat, shredded zucchini, mini chocolate chips and toasted walnuts makes for a perfect breakfast or snack muffin. They are light, not overly sweet, yet satisfying and I love the tiny bursts of chocolate in each bite. My kids, who are not always squash fans, even think they taste great. Now I get to start their day off, and mine, with healthy whole grains AND green vegetables. Not something that happens normally – trust me. Read More »


Plum Orange Anise Breakfast Cake with Multigrain Cereal

I think this one is the perfect level of sweetness for morning – tart, baked plums nestle into the soft fragrant cake; almost like a bread pudding. The Whole Wheat Pastry Flour and Multi Grain Cereal give it a pleasant granola-like texture, but without the crunch, if that makes sense. Every bite is just interesting. Read More »


Whole Wheat Bow Tie Pasta with Arugula, Walnuts and Browned Butter

As you can probably tell from this post Holly’s Summertime Garden Pasta Salad and this post Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad that Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Bow Tie Pasta is one of my favorites to cook with. The flavor is mild and easily replaces white flour pasta, without changing the taste of a dish, and many times improves it. This Whole Wheat Pasta with Arugula, Walnuts and Browned Butter is a perfect example of how to include whole wheat pasta in a great meal for dinner. Read More »

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 »
