Broccoli and Olive Oil Puree

My 2-and-a-half year old daughter has a love/hate relationship with broccoli. Some days she will eat half a stock of steamed broccoli while other days she turns a sour face away and refuses. My husband and I have at times resorted to using her favorite fruit gummy as bribery to get her to eat her […]

Baby’s Cheesy Broccoli

I don’t think any child gets super excited about broccoli for dinner, unless you add cheese sauce! This is the perfect new recipe for your young one! Cut up your broccoli into small pieces so that it’s easy for babies to pick up on their own and chew. Toss in the yummy cheese and vegetable […]

Coconut, Broccoli, Chicken Puree

It’s no secret that full time moms rarely have a moment to themselves. I’m a big believer in finding ways in your day to get ahead in your busy schedule. I’ll buy a whole chicken at our local grocery store for $6 and using a simple recipe of olive oil, salt and pepper, bake the […]

Healthy Squash Puree

Do you like Greek yogurt? I love it! A lot of my friends enjoy it too but usually only during breakfast. This creamy and tangy goodness shouldn’t be limited to only a morning dish, especially when so many things can pair great with it. Apple and cinnamon is a popular pair. Your favorite fresh fruit […]

Grilled Salmon, Broccoli, and Apple Puree

Moving to a new city or, in my case, an entirely new state can be scary. Researching schools and neighborhoods was daunting, although it was fun hunting down our new favorite restaurants. My family and I are definitely adventurous eaters. We like to get out of our comfort zone and try new food trucks, ethnic cuisines, flavors, you name […]

Baby Broccoli Potato Soup

One of my daughters favorite foods is potatoes, so I have loved adding potatoes to different purees and vegetables. It’s a great way to get her to try new vegetables while still tasting a food that she is comfortable with. You can also double the batch, and make some for the whole family. Just adjust […]

Broccoli, Quinoa & Barley Puree

Welcome to the whole grains party! This is one delicious porridge of a puree! Speaking of porridge, when starting out your little ones with food, you may think you want to start the rice cereal route. I mean, we’ve all strolled through the baby food aisle and that’s what they offer you. So, you think that […]

Broccoli Kiwi Puree

Babies love purees – mine did! We created so many different varieties and I loved experimenting with veggies, fruits and grains. The day we discovered apricots together was interesting, to say the least. The purees never stayed in her mouth and we had to change clothes each time; I kept trying, but she was not having it. One […]

Broccoli Potato Cheese

When I’m trying to come up with new baby food purees, I have several unspoken criteria that I always try and must meet: I want to make something that tastes smooth and creamy, but also provides as much visual interest and nutritional value as possible! There are certain foods, like broccoli, that meet almost all […]

Lemon Chicken with Vegetables

Believe it or not, my husband came up with this combination. The man loves a lemon (especially if it’s a Meyer lemon which is a little sweeter) and since he’s my best tester and loves to influence Kenya’s palate, I give him props for coming up with this delicious recipe. It takes minutes to prepare […]
