BBQ BLT Pizza

July has certainly cranked up the heat, which makes it less than appealing to create oven-like temperatures in my kitchen for our weekly dinner tradition, pizza Friday. If you’ve ever made pizza at home, you know that the oven has to be set well into the upper 400°’s to achieve a crispy crust. I don’t mind this high temperature warming up our kitchen in the middle of winter, but not so much during the hottest days of summer. So, to keep the heat outdoors, we use our BBQ grill to cook pizza.  Read More »

Corn Meal Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes with Cinnamon Maple Butter

Especially wintry mornings call for a hot stack of pancakes. What better way to start a freezing cold day than with a plateful of warm, fluffy pancakes dripping with butter and maple syrup for breakfast?

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 »


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 »


Grilled Pizza with Caramelized Onions, Sausage and Cheese

Not only are these toppings completely delicious, but the crust is, too. Hodgson Mill Rye Flour as well as some Hodgson Mill Corn Meal is mixed into the dough to add extra flavor and crunch. Don’t worry if you’re not a big rye flour fan; it does a good job of highlighting the smoky flavor you get from cooking on the grill and isn’t noticeable otherwise. Cooking pizza on the grill is not hard. Impressive – Yes. Hard – No. The key to success is to have everything prepared before you start grilling. As luck would have it, all of these ingredients can be fixed as early as the day before – even the crust – which I promise is not hard to make, either. Read More »
