Sweet Potato or Carrot Pancakes

At least once, sometimes twice a week we have pancakes for dinner. My youngest kids all the way up to my older kids, including my husband, love breakfast for dinner. I love it because I don’t have to spend all day in the kitchen preparing something they won’t eat :). These pancakes are full of […]

Black Sesame Cupcakes

My 2-year old and I had fun baking these black sesame cupcakes, made with whole wheat flour, yogurt, milk, cocoa powder, eggs and black sesame seeds. She helped add the ingredients to our Baby Bullet pitcher and especially enjoyed eating them once they were done! We added a lightly sweetened cream cheese frosting with acai […]

Dairy-Free Sweet Potato Muffins

I love having muffins on hand for a quick snack for my girls during the day, especially ones with a secret hidden veggie inside. 🙂 These muffins don’t last long in our house because my girls love their subtle sweetness with a melted chocolate chip on top, fresh out of the oven! Perfect for an […]

Blackberry Avocado Smoothie

Blackberries are naturally tart, so when I make this blackberry avocado smoothie, I also add some ripe banana to sweeten it up. Half of an avocado gives this blackberry smoothie a thick texture and healthy fats for your fast growing little one. Freeze the banana ahead of time if you want a cold smoothie in […]

Pumpkin Banana Bread

Fall is already almost upon us, and my little one and I are already having fun with pumpkin in the kitchen. We recently made this healthy pumpkin banana bread together using a ripe banana, pumpkin purée, coconut oil, whole wheat flour, milk and maple syrup to sweeten it up just a bit. It is always […]

Sweet Potato Cheddar Mac N’ Cheese

  This Mac N’ Cheese recipe is a miracle recipe. Not only did my pickiest eater eat an entire bowl of this, but I was able to enjoy a bowl myself.  A lot of times us parents can’t always enjoy the same food as our kids due to their picky-ness, and our desire to not […]

Pancake Mix Orange Date Bread

Date puree is one of my favorite alternatives to mashed or pureed bananas. It’s equally sweet and totally versatile, which means you can replace any banana puree with date puree! This bread is subtly sweet, with a hint of citrus. I made it for my girls to have as a quick snack when they want […]

Banana and Blackberry Puree

You can start feeding your baby this recipe as early as four months old. But if your baby has chronic eczema or a food allergy, make sure to talk to your doctor first. Berries have a misconception of being a top allergenic food even though they aren’t, but do watch out when you feed them […]

Edamame, Orange, and Avocado Puree

My daughter loves edamame. She likes to squeeze the little pods until the edamame pop out, making her my little kitchen helper. I love this recipe because I can use the ingredients to make two meals, one could be my toddlers lunch with the orange slices, avocado and edamame all ready to eat while the other option […]

Sweet Corn Quiche

My toddler loves this sweet corn quiche for breakfast, lunch or dinner. For a busy mom, it is one of my favorite dishes to whip up, because it only requires a few ingredients and very little time. Find a pre-made pastry shell and frozen corn at the grocery store to cut down even more time. […]
