Blueberry Strawberry Pops

I love this popsicle. It’s so easy to make and makes for a refreshing break in the day. This is perfect for babies who are teething, toddlers who are crazy for a sweet snack (crazy enough to stop and sit to enjoy it!), and even you, mom, to relax in the shade with a moment to yourself. […]

Chicken Tomato Corn Puree

For some of us, this winter hasn’t been too cold, while others have experienced endless rain and snowfall. This recipe is for those who want to cuddle up, stay warm and sip on a delicious soup with your family. My aunt makes a killer pot of tortilla soup. For added flavor, she adds cubed avocados, […]

Curried Edamame

I’m sure you’re reading this title and thinking, “Curry? That’s too spicy and rich for my baby’s tummy!” I would wait until your baby is at least one to try these more adventures types of foods, but it’s always a great idea to experiment with your babies palate.

What makes me last all day? Eating healthy food! My Baby Bullet is perfect for making baby purees. But why not also use it to make a smoothie for myself and my baby that I can take on-the-go? Elle is 9 months old, which means she is pretty much eating all sorts of food. We watched […]

Avocado Pear Teething Popsicles

“Welcome to teething” is an understatement. This is no walk in the park. Would you be happy if something was growing out of your gums? No, and this is happening to a tiny 9-month-old baby. Well, little Elle is always so happy. She cracks me up because we get smiles from her all the time; […]

Jack Frost is Not Our Friend!

With temperatures plummeting to the depths in various parts of the country, the stress of cold weather, blizzards and subzero temperatures takes its toll. Airports are paralyzed, schools and workplaces shut down and, yet, life must go on. That means we still have to buy food, trudge outside to empty the trash, shovel snow, and, […]

Natural Remedies for the Winter Sniffles

Once all the trees are composted, the decorations are tucked away until next year and the gifts have been given, the only remnants that seem to be left of the holiday season are a few extra pounds, a stack of bills and the sniffles. Considering that I have spent the last four out of five […]
