Blackberry Kale Puree


“Dang, Mommy! This one is good!” I say to myself as I feed my little one this fun mix of goodies packed into a puree. I had never thought to blanch kale before blending it into a delicious mix, and it makes a world of a difference! This recipe has just the right amount of sweetness […]

This is the time of year when we cover up the grill and blow the dust off of the crockpot, preparing it for its frequent, almost daily, use over the colder months. There is nothing quite like the smell of a delicious and hardy stew or soup when you come in from a long, cold […]

I’m sure you’re reading this title and thinking, “Curry? That’s too spicy and rich for my baby’s tummy!” I would wait until your baby is at least one to try these more adventures types of foods, but it’s always a great idea to experiment with your babies palate.

My sister called me to tell me that she just made “the best soup ever.” You can guess I was pretty skeptical. But, she said it was a delicious, warm kale and potato soup, and, those being two of my favorite cooking ingredients and favorites to have just around the house, of course, I had […]

Cauliflower, Yogurt and Chia Puree


I was fortunate that one of my best friends and I had babies around the same time. We did everything together and loved that our daughters were experiencing new things together.

This recipe has a special place in my heart. My dad and stepmom made this for us 3 years ago during our first week home as new parents.

Butternut Squash and Brown Rice


My little Elle loved, loved, loved butternut squash as a baby. Actually, she loved when I steamed any vegetable that was orange. She loved carrots, sweet potatoes, you name it… But then, at 16 months, her love for the orange vegetable began to wave. How can she be growing up this fast? This made me […]

Blueberry and Chickpea Puree


Have you noticed that some baby purees sold in stores use yogurt or milk? What if your kiddos are lactose intolerant? Be safe and give your little one a dairy-free option until you know for sure! The combination of blueberries and chickpeas in this puree is a great substitution for dairy if your baby is intolerant, […]

Kale Apple Mango Puree


This is a creative blend of baby food. I came up with it one night when I needed to make my little one some food and this is all I had in the fridge. Don’t you just love those days when the fridge is dwindling empty and you have to find your creative juices in […]

Delicious Apple Pie Dip

Mix potato starch and apple filling. Making Apple Pie Tart Series.

Last weekend, we took a trip to the orchard right down the street and went apple picking, which is a fall tradition of ours. The sun was shining, the pumpkins were arranged in rows, the apple cider donuts were still warm… It was perfection. The kids happily picked as many apples as they could, running […]
