Spinach, Chickpea, and Apple Puree

Now that I’m a mom to a 21-month-old, things have changed. Bed time is sooner, my husband and I have to watch what we say, and date night begins around 4 p.m. Most of our dinner parties happen at friends’ houses, and the majority of our friends also have kids and/or newborn babies. When we walk […]

Blueberry Pineapple with Fresh Spinach Puree

My joy in life is food. I’m the type of mom who was so excited to get started in the world of baby food. I was always on Pinterest, pinning away while breast feeding, and now, the time has finally come to create fun purees for my little one. Not as excited as I am? […]

Zucchini Raspberry Puree

As soon as babies are born, their minds begin to learn. New sights, new sounds, even the feeling on their fingertips as they start to touch new things. Could you imagine being that tiny in this big world? Luckily, you’re there to help guide them through it all! And, the old adage is true: it takes a […]

Caramel Applesauce

Every time I make applesauce, I’m reminded how it’s probably the easiest thing to do. It has little to no prep, and you could switch up the flavors to whatever your heart, or you little baby’s heart, desires! Recently, my little one was getting FOUR of her molars at the same time, and, needless to […]

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 […]

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 […]

Sweet Potato and Apple Puree

Sweet potatoes are my favorite first food for baby! Sweet potatoes are so nutritious and packed with vitamin E, calcium, folate, and more. When pureed, their texture is perfect for baby, which makes it easy to go down. As a new family with this tiny little baby in your arms, you might find it really hard […]

Cantaloupe, Banana and Orzo Puree

Orzo is a great choice for babies. Super easy to digest and small enough to swallow, I cook 1 cup of this pasta, add a little butter and my 18-month-old daughter loves it. And so do I! It expands, making you feel fuller longer. When Elle was teething, I would cook up steamed carrots in the […]

Egg Yolk, Avocado and Cucumber Puree

I love making random purees for my little adventurous eater. This puree is probably eliciting a lot of wonder, but I urge you to try it! For children, developing those brains and mental capacity is key. Those growing minds and bodies make for a happy and active baby. Breast milk is a good source of iron. So, if your […]
