Holy Cannoli!

As with most people with limited space in the kitchen, we like to make good use of our appliances. A few weeks ago, I noticed a number of comments regarding how readers were grateful to have some suggestions on ways to use the Baby Bullet once the little peanuts are no longer in pureed food [...]

Chicken and Corn with Cilantro Puree

Chicken Corn and Cilantro

I always recommend that you keep a little garden of herbs growing (if your weather permits) so you can trim a few pieces off at times to jazz up a recipe, even if it’s just for baby. Or maybe I should say, especially if it’s for your baby! I feel like we don’t give kids [...]

Chicken, Corn and Cauliflower

Chicken, Corn and Cauliflower

Corn is such a versatile food. Not only is it amazing on the cob, when it’s added to purees, it has a creamy, starchy quality. The corn in this puree gives it not only a sweet taste, but also a creamy texture. Since this recipe has a protein, vegetable and starch, it’s a great option [...]

Banana Avocado Mousse

Bananas and avocado are not only monsters of nutrition, but they also make a creamy and delicious combination for babies and toddlers. Avocados are rich in the antioxidants beta-carotene and vitamin C and E while bananas are filled with magnesium and potassium. This puree is so thick and rich, I decided to get all fancy [...]

Some people dread cooking beans because they think there are too many steps in the preparation. That’s where lentils come in handy. When mixed with a grain they become a complete protein and lentils are packed with iron, important for the creation of white blood cells and antibodies. The vitamin C from the tomatoes aid [...]

Some mornings when I walk downstairs bleary eyed – wait, that’s every morning – I wish there was something already made in the refrigerator that I could just pull out. I came up with this recipe for just that reason. Wheat germ was one of those foods I thought only older people ate. I remember [...]

Veggies & Sole

This recipe is a perfect mix of protein, carbohydrates and vegetables. Most parents that I talk to seem apprehensive about giving their little ones fish because they automatically assume they won’t like it. Not at all! Kenya loved fish from day one and still eats it twice a week and I think it has a [...]

Coconut Smoothie for Baby

Coconut-Smoothie-Baby-Food

We’ve been going to a small, but fantastic, farmer’s market near our house on Saturdays in order to satisfy my husband’s recent obsession with tropical fruit. One of the vendors there sells pineapples, papayas, mangos and bananas that taste so fresh, you’d think you were on a tropical island. By mid-week, if I’ve cut up [...]
