Fresh strawberries are flooding the supermarkets and I couldn’t be happier. Finally, after waiting through an eternal winter, warm weather has arrived and with it red, ripe strawberries. I realize most grocery stores carry strawberries year ‘round, but it’s not until late spring that the inside of the berry is as red as the outside – something only longer daylight hours and bright sunshine can produce.
In celebration of this first fruit of summer, I decided to try out a new muffin recipe: Roasted Strawberry Whole Wheat Muffins. These muffins are lightly sweet, have a delicate, almost cake-like crumb and do a great job of showcasing roasted strawberries.
I’ve roasted pears, apples and bananas in the past, but this was my first time roasting strawberries and I’m happy to report that they’re wonderful. Instead of roasting them at a high heat, in this recipe they’re slow roasted at a low temperature thus creating sweet, sticky, jammy berries that are lick-your-fingers good. Read More »
The Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Pastry Flour in the shortcakes adds a subtle wheat flavor and gives them a feather-light texture that makes them so tender they practically melt in your mouth. The little bit of lavender in the dough gives them a different taste from your regular run-of-the-mill shortcakes – it makes them special in a way that you can’t put your finger on, but can’t stop tasting them to try and figure it out. If you don’t have lavender, a little bit of orange zest would be great in this recipe as well. Read More »

If you are a fan of the circular English muffins that come from the grocery store, you will love this bread even more. It has all of the same English muffin taste wrapped up into simple, good-for-you, whole wheat yeast bread. One of the best parts about this bread is that it only needs to rise once, so it takes half the time to make than a traditional yeast bread recipe. It also makes two loaves – a total bonus in my book. You can choose to eat one loaf right away and freeze the other for another time, or like in my house, the day after the first loaf is devoured.
