Multi Grain Cereal with Dates, Orange and Cinnamon

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 »


Banana-Nut Bulgur Wheat Hot Cereal with Cinnamon-Honey Yogurt

I think I’ve found my new favorite hot cereal. You’ll remember in my earlier post for Lemon Dill Bulgur Salad with Chickpeas, Cucumber and Feta Cheese that I’ve discovered the wonders of Hodgson Mill Bulgur Wheat with Soy. In that same post I alluded to a great way to use bulgur wheat as a hot cereal – and here it is: hot cooked Hodgson Mill Bulgur Wheat mixed with brown sugar and toasted walnuts and topped with slices of banana. As tasty as this combination is, we won’t stop here – no, no. We’re going to put some Greek yogurt, mixed with honey and cinnamon, on top of it all. And so, may I present: Banana-Nut Bulgur Wheat Hot Cereal with Cinnamon-Honey Yogurt. Delicious, easy and so good for you – you simply must make this. Read More »


Lemon Dill Bulgur Salad with Chickpeas, Cucumber and Feta Cheese

I enjoy a good salad as much as the next person, but I need it to include protein to keep me satisfied and help me avoid snacking ten times before dinner. So, to create a delicious, protein-packed, spring-inspired lunch, I used Hodgson Mill Bulgur Wheat as the basis of my salad. In case you weren’t sure, bulgur wheat is whole wheat that’s been precooked (steamed) then dried and cracked. Hodgson Mill’s version helps give these whole grains a hearty 10 grams of protein per serving. Read More »

It includes a full cup of Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour, but also has plenty of white flour to even out the texture. If you’re accustomed to whole wheat breads, by all means, replace a cup of the white flour with more whole wheat.  Read More »

Bow Tie Pasta with Bacon and Mushrooms

A plateful of hot pasta covered in a delicious sauce served with fresh bread and a green salad is my idea of a great dinner. People pay a lot of money at restaurants for this kind of meal when they could easily make something just as good, if not better, at home. This recipe for Bow Tie Pasta with Bacon and Mushrooms is the perfect example of this kind of meal. It begins with healthy, 100% whole grain Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Bow Ties -not something found on most menus and so much better for you than regular white flour pasta. The bow ties get tossed together with fresh mushrooms and a creamy, bacon-flavored tomato sauce that comes together in less than 30 minutes. I warmed up a nice loaf of bread, tossed together a simple salad and dinner was served. It was easy, less expensive and better for my family than eating out. It also completely satisfied my craving for a great pasta meal and made a tasty little lunch for me as leftovers the next day. Read More »

Chocolate Studded Oatmeal Bars

When it comes to home baking, quality ingredients make all the difference. Take these Chocolate Studded Oatmeal Bars, for example. They’re made with Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour and Scharffen Berger Semisweet Chocolate Chunks. Sure they would be good with run-of-the-mill flour and chocolate chips, but my philosophy has always been that if you’re going to take the time to make something from scratch, you want it to turn out great. Therefore, start with great ingredients. Because these bars include Hodgson Mill whole wheat flour (the entire bran and germ are stone ground, preserving all of the grain’s natural nutrients and great taste) and 62% cacao chocolate chunks; they’re immediately transformed into something so much better than your average cookie. Read More »


Smoky Mac and Cheese

This is the perfect dish to warm you up and chase away some of those winter blues. Just thinking of melted cheese makes me feel better already. The addition of smoked cheddar cheese gives this classic dish a more complex flavor and the buttery panko breadcrumb topping bumps up the appeal. To take this recipe up another notch, I’ve included Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Elbows. Like all Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat pastas, these elbows are made from 100% Durum whole wheat, the highest quality wheat available. And the hearty texture and great whole wheat taste truly compliments a rich dish like this. With Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat pasta, my family is eating healthier and getting more nutrition than they would if I’d have made this dish from regular white pasta. Read More »
