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 […]

Banana and Coconut Milk with Cinnamon Puree

Making your own baby food is so easy and cost efficient! I love knowing that this tiny body I helped create will now be eating food that I prepare. Baby Bullet makes it so easy with their travel containers, so you can be stocked up for the whole week. The combination of these three ingredients: coconut milk, yummy […]

Roasted Yellow Squash with Olive Oil and Cilantro Puree

I find that baby food is a reflection of how we eat. My family and I are eating more healthy lately, since it’s up to me to keep my infant daughter healthy. So, when I’ve gone to the store lately, I end up buying things I normally wouldn’t buy for myself, like carrots. Gross. I’ve […]

Green Bean, Potato and Kale Puree

My daughter loves to hold on to food and just gnaw at it. First, it was whole carrots and then it became long, steamed green beans. I would just pop one or two right into the Baby Bullet Steamer and she would have her favorite vegetable ready in minutes. She would just carry it around […]

Butternut Squash and Brown Rice

My little Elle loved, loved, loved butternut squash as a baby. Actually, she loved when I steamed any vegetable that was orange. She loved carrots, sweet potatoes, you name it… But then, at 16 months, her love for the orange vegetable began to wave. How can she be growing up this fast? This made me […]
