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 […]

Healthy Date Cookies

Attention parents: you are going to love these healthy date cookies! No butter or added sugar, and they still taste delicious. My 2-year old loves to snack on them, and I don’t feel guilty because they are actually healthy for her. These date cookies are made with purĂ©ed dates, banana, oat flour, oats and almond […]

Overnight Date Oatmeal

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! My youngest daughter is extremely picky, and has pretty severe sensory issues when it comes to eating. The one food that she loves oddly enough […]

Raspberry Peach Smoothie Bowl

Lately, we have been in a breakfast rut. My daughter and I have the same three breakfasts every week, and we have been getting tired of oatmeal, eggs and banana pancakes. A few days ago, I decided to switch things up and make this raspberry peach smoothie bowl with the fresh peaches we bought at […]

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 […]
