What makes me last all day? Eating healthy food! My Baby Bullet is perfect for making baby purees. But why not also use it to make a smoothie for myself and my baby that I can take on-the-go? Elle is 9 months old, which means she is pretty much eating all sorts of food. We watched […]

“Welcome to teething” is an understatement. This is no walk in the park. Would you be happy if something was growing out of your gums? No, and this is happening to a tiny 9-month-old baby. Well, little Elle is always so happy. She cracks me up because we get smiles from her all the time; […]

Avocado Cinnamon Pear Puree

Elle, my 9-month-old daughter, has been eating so many varieties of food lately. She became a pro at eating avocados when she was 6 month old, but now I like to spice up the flavors and add combinations to her purees. The other day, I baked cinnamon pears as a snack and realized they would […]

Dried Fig Puree

Fig Puree

I realize figs are not the most common first fruit to give babies, but they’re one of the highest plant sources of calcium and fiber and have the highest overall mineral content of common fruits. Their soft texture and the crunch of their teeny tiny seeds will give an interesting mouth feel for little ones. […]

Chicken Tagine with Apricots

Chicken Tagine Baby Bullet

One of my favorite flavor combinations is found in the Moroccan dish known as tagine. It’s also a cooking vessel in which you put meat, vegetables, spices, and then cover and roast for an hour or so. There are few restaurants that make it, so I decided to prepare the baby version for Kenya so […]

Hawaiian Snapper Puree

Hawaiian Snapper 1

Fish is such a wonderful protein for babies, but most parents are intimidated to cook it for their little ones. Even as a child, the only time we had fish was when it was cooked under the broiler and it stunk up the whole house (sorry, Mom)! Most white fish have a more mellow flavor and can […]

Halibut with Summer Vegetables

Halibut with Summer Veggies 1

I love making this puree in the summer when all the beautiful vegetables are popping up at the farmers market, but now that it’s a little later in the season, making it can still be a breeze! Use frozen vegetables instead, since these can be easily found organic year-round. The flavors in this recipe are so […]

Tofu Salad Puree

Tofu Salad

I love cooking with tofu. It’s incredibly versatile and is packed with protein, iron, calcium and fatty acids. People all over the world have been eating it for centuries, due in part to its healthful benefits. This recipe is delicious. Creamy and tangy, it’s perfect on a spoon to feed baby or as a spread […]

Tuscan White Bean Puree

This dish reminds me of something you would have on a cool night in Tuscany. Cannelini beans, also known as white beans, have a smooth texture and a nutty flavor. Combined with the brown rice, you have a complete protein. I’ve been making the adult version of this dish for years. When you make this […]
