When most people think of Brussels Sprouts, they can’t help but think yuck! Indeed, that fragrant cabbage smell can be intense. But don’t boil these babies, roasting is the way to go! The delicious and subtle flavors come out while roasting in the oven, and result in the most awesome little crispy vegetables around. Bonus: it’s […]

Baby Banana Pancakes

My baby has recently started the phase where she only wants to feed her self, and won’t allow me to feed her with a spoon. It’s a hard transition because we as parents are not sure if our babies are getting enough food to eat, or if it’s all being fed to the dog! That’s why I […]

Delicious and Easy Homemade Fudge Sauce

If you love ice cream like I do, this hot fudge will take it over the top! Homemade is sooo much better than store bought, it’s unbelievable. This is one of those things you always think will take too long to make, but it actually took less than ten minutes and we stored it in […]

Grilled Salmon, Broccoli, and Apple Puree

Moving to a new city or, in my case, an entirely new state can be scary. Researching schools and neighborhoods was daunting, although it was fun hunting down our new favorite restaurants. My family and I are definitely adventurous eaters. We like to get out of our comfort zone and try new food trucks, ethnic cuisines, flavors, you name […]

Hominy, Chicken, and Green Bean Puree

Have you had hominy? Have you ever heard of hominy? They are these deliciously puffy and chewy corn kernels with a unique taste. You may have had them in foods like the hearty Mexican stew known as posole or other soups, cheesy casseroles, and sometimes in grits. I absolutely adore hominy! I thought it would be neat […]

Cuban Pork Polenta and Orzo Puree

Blueberry Protein Puree

I love this recipe because my little Elle loves it! Packed full of protein, it helps her feel full in the morning. And the added natural sweetness from the fruit gives her energy before daycare. Blueberries are packed with antioxidants and, even though they’re low in sugar, they taste sweet, too! Like blueberries, quinoa is […]

Potato Leek Soup

This recipe comes from a simple little cookbook that I picked up in Ireland while traveling. The cookbook is an unassuming paperback, almost pocket size but contains practically any Irish recipe you can think of that’s made with potatoes. If you haven’t heard of Colcannon, you have to check it out! I tried my hand […]

Cucumber with Squash and Chicken Puree

The most silly faces my little Elle gave me came when I fed her cucumbers. I love her reactions to new foods and cucumbers were incredibly comical! Lets just say she did not like them. Squash, she loved. And she started eating chicken like it was going out of style. So, one day I added all these […]
