Papaya Puree

Pic 1 copy

At my house, we love tropical baby foods. I’m always mixing pineapple into savory foods or bananas in with peas. A good smash-up is our thing. Recently, I realized Elle hadn’t tried papaya fruit yet! This fruit is not my favorite because of its musky smell, but my mom loves it and, after trying it, so does […]

Chicken Quinoa Puree


This recipe is crafted especially for parents who are ready to feed their baby protein. Typically around the 8-month mark is the perfect time to start. I love this recipe because chicken with quinoa is the perfect brain power combination. Quinoa is a seed (though it’s often treated like a grain) that is packed with natural […]

Carrot Apple Ginger Puree


I have a 13-month old who loved carrots as a baby. I would steam them, then puree them up in my Baby Bullet and she couldn’t eat enough of them. Even when she started cutting those top and bottom teeth, I would hand her a steamed baby carrot and she would gnaw her way through it. […]

Cheesy Kale Pasta


My toddler is loving chunky foods. She only has 4 teeth, so I have no idea how she eats the chunky food, but she loves it! Especially when she can grab them directly with her fingers. She grabs the food, pops it into her mouth, and before she can even finish chewing, she’s reaching for more […]

Super Green Puree


I say it’s never too early to start your little ones on a healthier diet than yours!  I feel like when I make my homemade baby food puree, I tend to eat healthier, too. I always use organic foods, like butternut squash, green beans, spinach, kale… you name it! It’s probably why I love making […]

Grilled Chicken, Avocado and Butternut Squash Puree


Here’s the scenario: you made a wonderful dinner last night. Let’s say you invited your friends over so they could see your baby and watch all the new, fun things he or she is doing and you prepared an easy grilled chicken and paired it with steamed squash, zucchini, carrots or whatever veggie you happened to […]

My 1-Year-Old’s New Favorite Meal


My one-year-old Jake just got his first teeth in the last month and a half (4 at once!) Prior to this, he wanted little to do with any baby food and lived solely off milk, oatmeal with applesauce and pureed sweet potato. Any new foods I tried to sneak into his pureed potato resulted in gagging […]

Ricotta Cheese Pancakes


Growing up, pancakes were a staple breakfast item in my house. We had it all, from your regular, buttermilk pancakes, to fruit-filled pancakes, to delicious chocolate chip pancakes. My mom would always make heart-shaped pancakes and I thought it must’ve been the hardest thing to do. On birthdays, we were in for a treat when our heart-shaped […]

Kiwi Popsicles


My 10-month-old daughter Elle is teething and, as any parent with a teething baby knows, cold chewables are great to help relieve some of the pain. Elle will gnaw on a frozen teething toy for a little bit, but will quickly lose interest. But, if I give her an ice cube, she will work on […]

Kiwi Peach Puree

Kiwi Peach Puree 1

I’ll never forget being a little girl, probably 4 or 5 years old, and riding around in the grocery cart at Winn Dixie, the market near our house. My Mother pushed the cart along and picked up this brown fuzzy thing in the produce aisle. She held it like a jewel and said, “It’s a […]
