Making Your Own Tomato Sauce


This is the time of year when gardeners can happily find themselves up to their ears in tomatoes. As an Italian, I don’t ever have a problem making those bad boys disappear. However, sometimes we find ourselves needing a change from fresh caprese and bruschetta or desiring to save some of our tomatoes to enjoy […]

Spinach Butternut Squash Puree


When feeding my daughter Elle during her first food days, she loved anything yellow or orange. She couldn’t get enough butternut squash! If she was being picky, we always knew she’d eat that, no questions asked. Unfortunately for me, I can’t stand the smell of steamed butternut squash. That’s because one day, I forgot to add […]

Papaya Puree

At my house, we love tropical baby foods. I’m always mixing pineapple into savory foods or bananas in with peas. A good smash-up is our thing. Recently, I realized Elle hadn’t tried papaya fruit yet! This fruit is not my favorite because of its musky smell, but my mom loves it and, after trying it, so does […]

Pear Apricot with Coconut Oil Puree


Babies are endlessly cute! Especially when they’re in that new first foods stage. Watching their cute little faces turn their noses up at sour foods, shivering after a taste of peas, we live for these moments. And nowadays, we’re ever so lucky to have our cameras rolling to re-live those darling moments over and over again! Want to […]

Chicken Quinoa Puree


This recipe is crafted especially for parents who are ready to feed their baby protein. Typically around the 8-month mark is the perfect time to start. I love this recipe because chicken with quinoa is the perfect brain power combination. Quinoa is a seed (though it’s often treated like a grain) that is packed with natural […]

Carrot Apple Ginger Puree


I have a 13-month old who loved carrots as a baby. I would steam them, then puree them up in my Baby Bullet and she couldn’t eat enough of them. Even when she started cutting those top and bottom teeth, I would hand her a steamed baby carrot and she would gnaw her way through it. […]

Cheesy Kale Pasta


My toddler is loving chunky foods. She only has 4 teeth, so I have no idea how she eats the chunky food, but she loves it! Especially when she can grab them directly with her fingers. She grabs the food, pops it into her mouth, and before she can even finish chewing, she’s reaching for more […]

Roasted Cauliflower with Chickpeas and Cashews


This roasted cauliflower dish will introduce you to a new flavor most of us Americans aren’t familiar with; it features the Middle Eastern spice blend za’atar. This blend includes sumac, a spice I had never heard of until making this dish. Lemony and bright, it’ll add a new level of depth to your dishes and an awesome Middle Eastern […]

Peach Puree


I’m from the South and peaches are in season! Even though I’m making these foods for my baby, I can’t wait to take her peach and apple picking. Learning about healthy eating is the key to opening up baby’s palate to a wide array of new foods – even the ones that you yourself may not like. […]

This recipe is the mother lode of recipes. It contains iron from spinach, antioxidants from blueberries and protein from rich, filling quinoa. You’ll notice your baby will be so happy and full of life throughout the day after eating this amazing puree, packed full of brain-strengthening and energizing ingredients. But first, let me take you back a […]
