Cherry Bars

When I was baking these cherry bars with my toddler the other day, I almost ran out of cherries! She loved to eat all of the fresh cherries right after I was done removing the pits from them, until they were almost gone. I was happy when they came out of the oven and she […]

Overnight Oatmeal

I can’t say enough about how much I love dishes that are ready to go when needed! Especially in the mornings when things can tend to get busy. Overnight oatmeal falls into that category as it takes little to no prep work, especially when you use the Baby Bullet Blender. I love that you can […]

Sweet Potato Muffins

These moist sweet potato muffins make a great quick breakfast or snack once your little one is able to start eating bread-like solids. For those on the younger side, tear these muffins into small pieces to make it easier for your baby to eat. My toddler is 18 months and able to tear the muffin into […]

Summertime Pure Fruit Smoothie

Summertime is awesome in Southern California because we have access to plenty of amazingly fresh fruit! The downside is that I almost never finish it all before it spoils. This time I was prepared and froze the extra when it was most ripe. On the tail end of a heat wave I made an all-fruit […]

The Benefits of Buttermilk

I shared a recipe for homemade artisanal butter with you in a previous post, which got me to thinking of also sharing with you the incredibly varied ways you can use buttermilk, the by-product of butter-making, at home. As a natural probiotic, you can drink buttermilk straight-up, getting your Laura Ingalls Wilder on, but I happen […]

Easy Egg Casserole

I’ve made this egg casserole three times now and it’s basically fool proof – perfect for busy moms and pops! It also makes it much easier to cook breakfast for a larger number of people, rather than trying to pan fry or scramble a dozen eggs at a a time. The cubed bread really helps […]

Caramel Applesauce

Every time I make applesauce, I’m reminded how it’s probably the easiest thing to do. It has little to no prep, and you could switch up the flavors to whatever your heart, or you little baby’s heart, desires! Recently, my little one was getting FOUR of her molars at the same time, and, needless to […]

Baby Banana Pancakes

My baby has recently started the phase where she only wants to feed her self, and won’t allow me to feed her with a spoon. It’s a hard transition because we as parents are not sure if our babies are getting enough food to eat, or if it’s all being fed to the dog! That’s why I […]

Making Your Own Coconut Yogurt

While I tend to drink all kinds of milk, I have a natural tendency to find an alternative to cow’s milk when I can. I don’t have any aversion to cow’s milk, I just began to question why we drink so much of it and why pediatricians push it unto parents and children so much […]
