Chicken and Corn with Cilantro Puree

Chicken Corn and Cilantro

I always recommend that you keep a little garden of herbs growing (if your weather permits) so you can trim a few pieces off at times to jazz up a recipe, even if it’s just for baby. Or maybe I should say, especially if it’s for your baby! I feel like we don’t give kids [...]
