Cornmeal Harvest Loaves

Don’t you just love having pictures and a post in your stash for those days when you haven’t cooked/baked or created anything. This is one of them. Back when Hodgson Mills sent me a shipment of their different flours I made this bread. I found the recipe at Epicurious.com and was feeling very brave that…


Whole Wheat Blueberry Mini Muffins

When I received the gift pack from Hodgson Mills they also included a box of Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffin Mix with Milled Flax Seed, and a box of Whole Wheat Gingerbread Mix. Our neighbor recently had back surgery so he and his wife are going to be the recipients of Whole Wheat Blueberry Mini Muffins….


Let’s Have Leftovers – Stuffing Frittata and Cranberry Orange Bars

Don’t Forget to enter my Hodgson Mills giveaway. If you haven’t had a chance to please check out this post. The giveaway ends on Wednesday December 5th. I posted this recipe last Thanksgiving and I thought I’d share it with you again. We’ve been feasting on our holiday goodies for a couple of days now…


White Chocolate Pastry Cream Tart

Tiptoeing across the fine line of moderate indulgence often requires balance, a tad bit of willpower and quality ingredients. Hodgson Mill came along at the perfect time with an offer to use some of their whole grain products for a post. Hodgson Mill has also generously offered a coupon for a dollar off any 5…


The Feeding Frenzy is Upon Us

It’s that time of year again, On your mark, get set, EAT!!! According to research, the average American gobbles down between 2,000 and 4,000 calories during his or her Thanksgiving Day meal! That doesn’t include seconds either. This is the time of year when caution is thrown to the wind in regards to dietary choices….


Square One

So here I am again, pretty much where I’ve been since the end of July. I have re-injured my torn tendon and I’m back on crutches and wearing the boot. I was doing so well darn it! Wasn’t doing any aerobics, minimized my trips up and down the stairs and didn’t standing for too long…


Apple Crisp Re-do

A while back I made a couple of apple desserts and never got around to posting them. This one is a do over. Not that I thought the first time wasn’t great. I just made it again because it’s one of Charisse’s favorites. Aren’t I a sweet mommy? It’s a Weight Wathcers recipe and for…


Smoked Sausage and Gouda Mini Frittata

I had a chance to sample some Old Amsterdam precut gouda cheese. When it came I wasn’t sure what to do with it. This may have been only the second time I tried it and only the first time cooking with it. Yes, I’ve led a sheltered cheese life. When I first tasted Gouda I…


Chocolate Avocado Zucchini Bread

Last Tuesday when I set out for my morning walk I noticed a twinge in my heels. This happens from time to time so I didn’t pay much attention to it. I also thought it may be time for some new workout shoes. The next day the twinge moved into an annoying pain. However, I…


Apricot Pound Cake

To me the most sinful and decadent desserts are also high in cholesterol. Also, butter trumps any other type of fat when it comes to flavor and texture in baked goods. However, butter is super high in cholesterol. So in order to have my cake and eat it too, occasionally I have to make substitutions….
