Coconut Custard Pie with Whole Grain Crust

Custard pie is a natural for breakfast (or any other time, for that matter). It’s even more of a natural when you replace the sugar with maple syrup, and surround it with this delicious, nutty-tasting whole-grain crust. Deep and earthy Hodgson Mill Rye Flour and the subtle sweetness of Hodgson Mill Oat Bran Cereal and Whole Wheat Pastry Flour are balanced with just the right amount of butter, making a crisp, melt-in-your-mouth crust that cradles the cool, custardy coconut filling. 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.

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 »

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 »

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 »

Cherry-Cornmeal Upside-Down Cake

As much as I love to eat fresh fruit, baking with it is near to my heart – and stomach. Crisps, cobblers, pies, muffins, scones – the list could go on, but this time I decided on cake. I wanted something that would showcase the cherries and add to their sweetness. This Cherry-Cornmeal Upside-Down Cake is the perfect answer. The cherries are sautéed with brown sugar, butter and a little bit of balsamic vinegar and then a lovely, light cornmeal batter made with Hodgson Mill Yellow Cornmeal is layered on top and baked until it turns into a golden brown cake. Then the whole thing is turned upside-down and the oooh’s and ahhh’s begin. The cherries glisten on top of the cake like rubies and beg to be picked off and eaten. The deep yellow from the stone ground cornmeal peeks out around the edges of the cake and promises to deliver a tasty bite along with the cherries on top. 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 »
