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 […]

The Breakup: Letters Between the Avocado & the Peach

Dear Avocado, This has been the most amazing summer! I never thought I would meet someone like you. From the first time we crossed paths at that Memorial Day party to today, my life has been changed. I’m really looking forward to our future together! Love, Peach   Dear Peach, Hey, sweetie. Loved your note. But […]

Sweet Corn Quiche

My toddler loves this sweet corn quiche for breakfast, lunch or dinner. For a busy mom, it is one of my favorite dishes to whip up, because it only requires a few ingredients and very little time. Find a pre-made pastry shell and frozen corn at the grocery store to cut down even more time. […]

Watermelon Yogurt Popsicles

Entertaining kids during the summer, especially when you live in the desert, can be brutal. With it being so hot, my girls beg for popsicles to keep them cool after playing outside. I try my best to limit the overloaded sugar type popsicles, so we’ve been making our own versions to help! These have a base […]

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. […]

Overnight Date Oatmeal

Date puree is one of my favorite alternatives to mashed or pureed bananas. It’s equally sweet and totally versatile, which means you can replace any banana puree with date puree! My youngest daughter is extremely picky, and has pretty severe sensory issues when it comes to eating. The one food that she loves oddly enough […]

Raspberry Peach Smoothie Bowl

Lately, we have been in a breakfast rut. My daughter and I have the same three breakfasts every week, and we have been getting tired of oatmeal, eggs and banana pancakes. A few days ago, I decided to switch things up and make this raspberry peach smoothie bowl with the fresh peaches we bought at […]

Chocolate & Greens Popsicle

Babies LOVE cold treats, especially on their sore and teething gums. Popsicles are awesome when it comes to soothing babies, but a lot of times they are loading with tons of unnecessary sugars. I love these popsicles because they taste like chocolate fudge, but have a secret veggie ingredient that no one would even guess! […]
