I swear, I make more than just soups! But soups are my ultimate go-to; they’re easy to make and they’re my all-time favorite food. I love that you can throw together whatever you have on hand and make an infinite variety of meals with a simple side salad and crusty bread. Plus, just add in […]

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 […]

Asian Baked Tofu and Eggplant

Ahh, a healthy, simple and filling protein-packed recipe for baked tofu that the whole family can enjoy. Is it too good to be true? This recipe says no! In fact, even my toddler ate this one up. This recipe comes from PBS Food; I made some minimal adjustments, doubling the sauce recipe, substituting half of […]

After indulging in heavy holiday dinners to close out the year, I started feeling like we needed some new, healthy, vegetarian recipes to round out our diets. My goal in the coming weeks is to try one new vegetarian recipe each week. This one was easy – it takes about 15 minutes and you probably have […]

Coming off of the overindulgence of the holiday season can be a bit of a beast. Following weeks of eating just about every cookie and drinking every glass of wine or champagne I could get my hands on, my brain and my gut flora are in a complete uproar, and the button on my jeans […]

I think it’s safe to say that a lot of us parents have had the experience of opening up our fridges and seeing nothing there to feed our baby. After a frustrating day like this, I decided to load up and made a ton of Baby Bullet purees for my daughter Elle. Now, when I open the […]

Making Tiramisu in the Baby Bullet

Tiramisu

One of my favorite desserts in the world is tiramisu, a love that runs in the family. In lieu of cake, my father always wants to have tiramisu for dessert on his birthday, and rightfully so. That creamy, mousse-y consistency and texture, combined with the mocha-java flavor is pure decadence on a spoon. When making […]

Hot Chocolate or Hot Cocoa?

I recently had a lively conversation with a handful of colleagues regarding the way geography has tendency to impact what we call things. For example, I never heard the word “bubbler” until I taught in Massachusetts. We call them water fountains in Connecticut. From tag sales vs. yard sales and grinders vs. subs, to jimmies […]

This is one of those dessert recipes that a lot of us are afraid to try! For me, anything with airy egg whites is always intimidating, but this is one of my favorite cakes and I just so happened to be given an angel food cake pan, so the time was ripe! This isn’t as […]

Continuing my goal to try one new vegetarian recipe a week, I decided to try my hand at a special pumpkin soup! It’s quick to prepare, but totally hearty for those cold winter evenings when you can’t think of what to make for dinner. Serve with a crusty baguette and simple salad and spice it […]
