Whipped Ricotta with Fresh Strawberries

It’s always hard to think of new and creative ways to get your baby the nutrition he or she needs, and sometimes they tire of bland vegetables. That is why I LOVE this recipe, because it can serve as a delicious, easy-to-make spread for adults, or a yummy first food for the kiddos! It’s totally versatile. […]

Blueberry Strawberry Pops

I love this popsicle. It’s so easy to make and makes for a refreshing break in the day. This is perfect for babies who are teething, toddlers who are crazy for a sweet snack (crazy enough to stop and sit to enjoy it!), and even you, mom, to relax in the shade with a moment to yourself. […]

The Perfect Smoothie for a Nursing Mother

This simple smoothie recipe holds a special place in my heart. When we were new parents with our first son, we were sleep deprived and malnourished. We never felt like cooking… We had a family friend (who is like a second mom to me) bring us the ingredients for this on a tray, along with […]

Brussel Sprouts, Potato, and Squash Puree

Here is a fun, adventurous recipe for your baby that you can introduce around the 8-9 month mark. I know a lot of babies love potato. It’s so easy to fix and, as adults, you can’t say it’s hard to enjoy a baked potato. Ever since moving back to Texas, I can’t help ordering chopped brisket in my […]

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 […]

Quick and Easy Avocado Dressing

There’s nothing better than a versatile sauce you can use any time. As a salad dressing, a sauce, or all around flavor enhancer, this is a great recipe to give your dish that little extra effortless oomph it needs. The first night, we had it on a salad and added lemon, which made it taste […]

Butternut Squash and Leek Soup

Another great recipe for soup lovers! Soup is great because it’s filling and warm and inviting, all while being perfect for your littlest eaters. This recipe helped me sneak nutritious vegetables into my 4-year-old’s diet and helped me use up 2 huge leeks I received in this month’s farm delivery. Luckily, the family gave this […]

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 […]
