Thanksgiving Puree Pairings

Sometimes, the best movies need the best supporting characters. And it’s no different with your Thanksgiving meal. While the turkey may be the main event, consider the quick “whip together” options that you don’t have to sweat over. Even better, all these choices qualify to be made ahead of time, which makes them winners in […]

Veggie Tots

Once kids hit the finger food stage, it can be a challenge giving them healthy snacks with all of the temptations of packaged foods. We like to make these veggie tots to snack on, which can be kept in the refrigerator for a few days to enjoy. They are made with broccoli, carrots, egg and […]

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.

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 […]
