IMG_9367

After watching the delectably enticing Food Network the other night, I suddenly got a craving for some oatmeal cookies. I decided to go ahead and make a batch – and then eat 5 cookies all at once. Oops. Well, I don’t regret it, and you won’t either! I loosely followed this recipe from Betty Crocker […]

Hawaiian Snapper Puree

Hawaiian Snapper 1

Fish is such a wonderful protein for babies, but most parents are intimidated to cook it for their little ones. Even as a child, the only time we had fish was when it was cooked under the broiler and it stunk up the whole house (sorry, Mom)! Most white fish have a more mellow flavor and can […]

No-Bake Baby Bullet Cheesecake

Homemade Pumpkin Pie

As is the case with many New Englanders, fall is my favorite season! The cool and crisp nights, the colorful and crunchy leaves, the hay bales and scarecrows, the costumes and hayrides, and, most of all, the pumpkins and apples are just a slice of heaven here on Earth. The sights, the smells, and the […]

Halibut with Summer Vegetables

Halibut with Summer Veggies 1

I love making this puree in the summer when all the beautiful vegetables are popping up at the farmers market, but now that it’s a little later in the season, making it can still be a breeze! Use frozen vegetables instead, since these can be easily found organic year-round. The flavors in this recipe are so […]

This dish reminds me of something you would have on a cool night in Tuscany. Cannelini beans, also known as white beans, have a smooth texture and a nutty flavor. Combined with the brown rice, you have a complete protein. I’ve been making the adult version of this dish for years. When you make this […]

Homemade Turkey Burgers

I’ve never made turkey burgers before, I usually just buy frozen. So when my dad invited us over for a barbecue, I decided to give it a try. My sister was visiting from out of town and she tries to eat only organic meat, so when we were wandering around whole foods we decided to […]
