The Early Bird

For the second year, we’ve teamed up with the Cornell Lab of Ornithology to bring bird lovers the ultimate birding photo contest. Each week we’re giving away prizes and sharing some of our favorite recipes, perfect for fueling a healthy, happy day of watching birds. Check back here each week for a great recipe, and don’t forget to vote on your favorites and enter your own photos in BirdSpotter!


The early bird gets the worm. This bowl of oats is definitely a lot tastier than a worm and is sure to get you revved up for the day and keep you going strong all morning. Pour a shot of espresso over your favorite bowl of oatmeal and top with whipped cream. Add a few chocolate-covered espresso beans for an extra boost. Pow! You’re ready to rock and roll.

I just had to share our recipe for a great moist Cinnamon raison bread. Our bread machine can handle 2 of your prepackaged bread mix bags. We add in place of water any kind of yogurt like plain or vanilla in the same amounts (3 cups for 2 of your bags). Run the machine for 4 hours 30 minutes and the bread comes out really moist with a nice texture.

Thanks for the tip!

The recent “grains of discovery” mailing for summer turned out to be wonderful. I get so much junk mail that I pitch without a second glance. I took a second glance and opened this only to evaluate the coupons before tossing it in the recycle bin. My attention was caught by the recipes and information! Tell your marketing folks that the coupons attracted me, but the recipes and historical articles about the grains really had me paging through the little booklet. Keep it up! THANKS

Thank you so much! We’re so happy to hear that.

Oh, and I am also involved with the Cornell Ornithology program and have a “wildlife certified” backyard. In Maryland we have black squirrels, grey squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits, opossums, raccoons and a *dopey* groundhog. We have a wild box turtle that visits our back yard. And birds galore. We do not share Bob’s Red Mill grains with them. We do provide a variety of other seeds & suets, and clean water year-round. And to think, our back yard is only 20 X 20 feet.
