Holy Cannoli!

cannoli-dip9.

As with most people with limited space in the kitchen, we like to make good use of our appliances. A few weeks ago, I noticed a number of comments regarding how readers were grateful to have some suggestions on ways to use the Baby Bullet once the little peanuts are no longer in pureed food [...]

Veggie Smoothie

I have enormous respect for moms who refuse to give in to the picky eater syndrome and continue to offer their kids vegetables in different forms until they find something that works. Juicing is a good option, but most moms I know don’t own a juicer. I love making vegetable smoothies because they’re packed with [...]

Red, White and Blue Totsicles

Natural-red-white-and-blue-popsicles

Happy 4th of July! Preparing healthy food and snacks on this holiday is tough – it’s grilling season and the heat might make you want to reach for an ice cold can of pop. But don’t let these circumstances keep your little ones from eating healthy! We’ve got the perfect summertime cool down treat for [...]

Quickest Yogurt Avocado Sauce

OneHungryMama Salmon Quick Avocado Yogurt Sauce

I’m always skeptical of headlines that claim they’ll help you get dinner on the table in 15, 20 or even 30 minutes. The truth is that what takes a professional recipe developer 30 minutes is likely to take the average home cook 40 or 45 minutes. But a few recipes are truly as quick as [...]

Peach and Strawberry Parfait

Baby-Bullet-Batchbowl

Straight from our new Baby Bullet show, pediatrician Dr. JJ tells us how to make a delicious, healthy dessert for the whole family using the Baby Bullet. Dessert has become an expected course on our daily menu, but it’s also gotten us into some trouble. The problem is we’ve fed our sweet tooth the wrong [...]

We are officially less than a week away from Valentine’s Day and the onslaught of recipes featuring raspberry red, strawberry pink and chocolate — the colors and flavors of love and passion — has begun. While I love rosy hues and chocolaty treats, I thought I’d take a moment to celebrate yellow, the color of [...]

Orange Cranberry Spice Pancakes

The holidays are over, but my obsession with cranberry sauce is not! I love the stuff and would be happy to keep making it well through the end of winter. My favorite slow cooker cranberry sauce recipe  is so easy to make that it would be easy to do, if only fresh cranberries were as [...]

Almond Vanilla Cookies with Coconut Flour

Coconut Cookies

So I’m sitting with a fellow shipmate of mine at the galley, discussing dining habits, when she informs me that she and her husband (who happen to be gluten-free) make coconut flour cookies. My ears perked up. Coconut Flour cookies? What is this scrumptious-sounding thing? I had to do some research! Turns out, coconut flour [...]

Pumpkin Donuts

  When I started making babysitting money around the age of 12, my favorite things to buy weren’t clothes or toys. No, I spent that hard-earned cash on donuts. There were two bakeries in town that sold the most unbelievably decadent donuts and I was addicted to them. Even before entering either shop, the rich, [...]

Superfoods for Babies

“Let food be thy medicine and let medicine be thy food,” to quote Hippocrates. The Oxford English Dictionary defines a Superfood as “a food considered especially nutritious or otherwise beneficial to health and well-being.” The term Superfood has become commonplace and a bit overused, kind of like ‘amazing’ and ‘nice.’ What is a Superfood and [...]
