Healthy Squash Puree

Do you like Greek yogurt? I love it! A lot of my friends enjoy it too but usually only during breakfast. This creamy and tangy goodness shouldn’t be limited to only a morning dish, especially when so many things can pair great with it. Apple and cinnamon is a popular pair. Your favorite fresh fruit […]

Veggie Puree

There is a real struggle with eating veggies. Now that I am responsible for feeding this tiny baby, I say to myself, “Am I feeding her right? Am I feeding her enough?” All I know is that I want my baby to be happy and healthy. And veggies make for healthy babies. That’s why I […]

Homemade Vanilla Bean Applesauce

There’s one very important thing I have to ask when feeding new foods to my baby: Is this organic? While I was pregnant with Elle, I made sure to take care of myself by eating right, doing daily yoga, and relaxing. Naturally, I want to make sure she’s healthy and safe outside of the womb, too. Every […]

Minty Peas Puree

I like fresh vegetables as much as anyone, but when you need something easy and full of flavor, frozen peas are a godsend. So make this with those gorgeous fresh peas during the summer, and don’t feel bad about resorting to frozen during the chilly winter months. Either way, this baby food puree is a […]

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 […]
