Mexican Grilled Pizza with Lime Sour Cream

Pizza Friday is a weekly tradition at my house, but lately the weather’s been so hot, I can’t bring myself to turn on the oven, let alone get it hot enough for pizza. So, this week I took the heat outdoors and cooked our pizza on the grill. Mexican Grilled Pizza with Lime Sour Cream is piled high with cheese, chorizo, red onion, black beans, corn, tomato, cilantro and a tangy, lime-flavored sour cream. It’s delicious, and my kitchen stayed cool. Perfect.  Read More »


Bow Tie Pasta with Chicken and Asparagus in Lemon-Cheese Sauce

It’s finally springtime and our faithful root vegetables have done their job and gotten us through the tough winter months. Now, bright green vegetables are popping up all over grocery store produce aisles, with fresh asparagus being one of my all-time favorites. I love to roast it, keep it raw and shave it into salads, steam it and grill it. I even grow it in my garden just to have my own supply in the early months of the season. This Bow Tie Pasta with Chicken and Asparagus in Lemon-Cheese Sauce is another way that I like to incorporate asparagus in a light, good-for-you pasta dish. 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 »


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 »


Butterscotch White Whole Wheat Cookies

Ho! Ho! Ho! We’re in full holiday mode at my house and we’ve picked up the pace to bake as many of our favorite cookies as we can before Christmas is over. So many to choose from and so little time left! These Butterscotch White Whole Wheat Cookies were next on our list, and although they may not have a fancy name, they sure make up for it in taste. They’re filled with butterscotch chips and dry-roasted cashews that create a fantastic salty-sweet combination in each bite. You’ll never guess that there’s Hodgson Mill White Whole Wheat Flour in these cookies. The texture, a little more robust than white flour but less hearty than Hodgson Mill’s traditional whole wheat flour, is spot on. Paired with the chopped cashews, the taste is so mild it nearly goes undetected in the buttery, sweet dough. I knew I couldn’t let the season pass without baking up a batch of these tasty cookies! Read More »


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 »


Blackberry Buttermilk Cake

Truth be told, this blackberry buttermilk cake is a dessert. But it’s made with so many healthy ingredients — Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Pastry Flour, Hodgson Mill Milled Flax Seed, fresh blackberries, and apricot jam — I served it for breakfast. I also made a cinnamon-vanilla yogurt sauce to drizzle over the top for more breakfast appeal — not that my family needs much arm twisting to eat cake first thing in the morning. Read More »
