Black Bean and Oatmeal Puree

I broke down the other day and just grabbed a handful of pre-made baby foods (organic, of course). Don’t judge me. Which I know you would never. Those things come in handy while driving on the road or at the park. Because we all know when a kid is hungry they get hungry fast! Out […]

Chicken Sausage Potato & Spinach Soup

Moms can have the challenging job of making two meals for dinner. One, for you, your spouse, and older kids, and the other meal for your baby or toddler. I’m a big believer in trying to make one meal that everyone can enjoy. And it’s quiet simple. I recently made a hearty soup during a […]

Yellow Pepper and Fruit Puree

Are you one of those moms or dads who loves to experiment around in the kitchen with their food? Do you try new foods? Is your little one an adventurous eater? Because if you are, then most likely your kids will notice your courageous side and be a connoisseur too. When my Elle was a […]

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 […]

Banana Beet Puree

I will come out and be honest with you. I am not a fan of beets. My great grandmother and father loved to eat them. Even my husband enjoys them in a salad. I personally think they taste too earthy. Actually, let me take that back, they taste like what soil smells like when you’re […]

Green Goddess Pasta Puree

Babies, toddlers, and adults – we all love pasta! My little one can put down an entire box of macaroni and cheese at dinner. And honestly, mac and cheese is a guilty pleasure of mine. Instead of sneaking bites from my daughter’s favorite dish, I thought I’d make a new pasta dish that we could […]

Are we Listening to our Hunger Cues?

The last couple of months I’ve been working with a dietician and one of the homework assignments she gave me was to set a clock for 20 minutes during mealtime. The purpose? To slow my eating down. Now I’ve had plenty of challenges in my life. I’ve completed obstacle courses, I’ve run half-marathons, and I’ve […]

Cauliflower Pasta Sauce

My one and a half year old daughter is crazy about the cauliflower pasta sauce. We make it together on a weekly basis. The ingredients are simple, and it’s quick to make. First, you steam the cauliflower florets. While those are cooking, you cook some chopped garlic in a bit of olive oil for flavor. […]

Carrot Hummus

Hummus is one of my favorite snacks. It’s not just really tasty but also super healthy and packed full of protein. My toddler loves grabbing raw carrots and dipping them in hummus. So, I figured making hummus with carrots would be a nice change of pace for both of us. This recipe is perfect for […]

Fennel, Peach, and Pea Puree

Fennel is a crunchy and slightly sweet vegetable in the same category as a parsley and carrot. Although I tend to think of it more like a sweet onion that I love to sauté in a dish. This is also the season when it’s at it’s best (available from autumn to spring). To some, fennel […]
