Edamame, Orange, and Avocado Puree

My daughter loves edamame. She likes to squeeze the little pods until the edamame pop out, making her my little kitchen helper. I love this recipe because I can use the ingredients to make two meals, one could be my toddlers lunch with the orange slices, avocado and edamame all ready to eat while the other option […]

Apple Pecan Carrot Zucchini

The ingredients in this recipe are undoubtedly fall but when my little one gets bored with her go-to summer purees, I always find myself making this recipe. So, the next time you get tired of making a dish with summer vegetables, try this one out. I find that soaking the pecans in water is the key to helping them blend into […]

Broccoli and Orange Puree

Some days I just wanna say yuck to broccoli. Then there are some days that I crave it. Well, my bouncing, bubbly, and very active toddler actually craves it. Looking back, I think I know why she craves that little green vegetable. And it begins with a little fib my husband and I told her. […]

Summer Activities to Beat the Heat

Summer is in full force. The weather is hot and humid and your toddler seems to need constant attention and entertainment. We live in a small town in Texas and the community of people are so sweet. I love how the town comes together with a band at the town’s center stage on Saturday nights, […]

Graduating from Everything

Summer is upon us so let the fun begin. But before the summer break begins we’ve all been super swamped with “End of the Year” school parties. I have never seen more jumpy houses and hotdogs in my life. My daughter goes to two daycares since mom and dad both work from home. While having […]

Black Bean and Oatmeal Puree

I broke down the other day and just grabbed a handful of pre-made baby foods (organic, of course). Don’t judge me. Which I know you would never. Those things come in handy while driving on the road or at the park. Because we all know when a kid is hungry they get hungry fast! Out […]

Confetti Shortbread Cookies

When was the last time you just let it all go and made a complete mess? If you are raising a child then that’s probably everyday. Right? Just the other day I made myself rummage though the entire house to put the clutter away. I couldn’t believe how many of my daughter’s darn hair bands […]

Chicken, Carrot, and Tomato Puree

Do you have a picky little eater? There are adventurous eaters and eaters who play it safe by only eating the same few dishes. I know some toddlers who only want to eat mac n cheese for every meal and others who turn their nose up at the sight of any vegetable coming their way […]

Chicken Sausage Potato & Spinach Soup

Moms can have the challenging job of making two meals for dinner. One, for you, your spouse, and older kids, and the other meal for your baby or toddler. I’m a big believer in trying to make one meal that everyone can enjoy. And it’s quiet simple. I recently made a hearty soup during a […]
