I think by now the excesses of the holidays are firmly behind us, and resolutions– like health and fitness and saving money–stretch ahead. I’d like to suggest one proverbial stone for these two birds—and that is Hodgson Mill Steel Cut Oats. They’re incredibly healthy and filling, full of protein and fiber– I definitely notice that the days I start with whole grains like steel cut oatmeal, I can hold out better ‘til lunch. It’s also cheap to prepare; plus you can make enough in one go to last for the week, (like I’m about to describe) and using different toppings helps keep it interesting. Voilà–cook once, and you’ve got hot breakfast for the week. Read More »

But that’s what’s so perfect about this breakfast: easy, healthy, fast and delicious. Read More »

I’m delighted to be here. My name is Erin; I love food (making, and eating). I like making things. And I like sharing both.
My parents, Bob and Cathy, own Hodgson Mill, and when the chance came up to work with them, to photograph and write about the products I’ve been using pretty much since I learned to bake, I jumped. I already bake all kinds of Hodgson Mill for myself and my friends. Why not for new friends, too?
I always try to eat healthy. It makes me feel better. But I also adore food, and I love trying new tastes, old tastes, anything sweet. . . . Read More »
