Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Kale and Orange Puree

When most people think of Brussels Sprouts, they can’t help but think yuck! Indeed, that fragrant cabbage smell can be intense. But don’t boil these babies, roasting is the way to go! The delicious and subtle flavors come out while roasting in the oven, and result in the most awesome little crispy vegetables around. Bonus: it’s […]

Grilled Salmon, Broccoli, and Apple Puree

Moving to a new city or, in my case, an entirely new state can be scary. Researching schools and neighborhoods was daunting, although it was fun hunting down our new favorite restaurants. My family and I are definitely adventurous eaters. We like to get out of our comfort zone and try new food trucks, ethnic cuisines, flavors, you name […]

Cuban Pork Polenta and Orzo Puree

I am a fan of always using the ingredients that you have in your fridge. Don’t break the bank whipping up something new when you can get creative with what’s already in your fridge. This week, I made a fun Cuban-style pork roast for the family. We had a ton left over, so I made this fun […]

Cucumber with Squash and Chicken Puree

The most silly faces my little Elle gave me came when I fed her cucumbers. I love her reactions to new foods and cucumbers were incredibly comical! Lets just say she did not like them. Squash, she loved. And she started eating chicken like it was going out of style. So, one day I added all these […]

Making Your Own Coconut Yogurt

Baby Broccoli Potato Soup

One of my daughters favorite foods is potatoes, so I have loved adding potatoes to different purees and vegetables.

Chicken Tomato Corn Puree

For some of us, this winter hasn’t been too cold, while others have experienced endless rain and snowfall. This recipe is for those who want to cuddle up, stay warm and sip on a delicious soup with your family. My aunt makes a killer pot of tortilla soup. For added flavor, she adds cubed avocados, […]

Strawberry Peanut Butter Banana Puree

Babies are so cute and cuddly. The best part for me is when they start to eat. They start using their little taste testers for the first time. Watching the adorable faces they make and the satisfaction they get from the flavors they love always puts a smile on my face. It’s very important that […]

Risotto Asparagus

I love risotto and this dish, the whole family can enjoy. Babies can enjoy it pureed, toddlers can eat it with their hands, and everyone else can enjoy the full dish in all its glory. For the busy cook in the fam who doesn’t have the time to stand over the risotto to make the […]
