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 […]

Basic Chicken Puree

If you follow my blog and recipes, you know that I’m a big fan of making a dish that the family can enjoy as well as using it to make a puree for your baby. This basic chicken puree can be the base for a ton of baby purees – as well as being used […]

Creamy Cauliflower Puree

My baby loves mashed potatoes. Even when she is refusing to eat her dinner, a small plate of mashed potatoes will always do the trick and get her eating. But, mashed potatoes fill my baby up with carbs which aren’t the best nutrients for my baby. Like with any food, carbs need to be eaten in moderation. […]

Blueberry Pineapple with Fresh Spinach Puree

My joy in life is food. I’m the type of mom who was so excited to get started in the world of baby food. I was always on Pinterest, pinning away while breast feeding, and now, the time has finally come to create fun purees for my little one. Not as excited as I am? […]

To Feed or Not to Feed? Food Allergies in the First Year

When it comes to feeding your infants, you lean pretty heavily on your pediatrician, your family, and your friends for advice. Over the last 5 years, and especially this year, there has been a quantum shift in how we’re being advised to feed our infants – based on evidence gathered from many studies supporting the […]

Cuban Pork Polenta and Orzo Puree

I am a fan of always using the ingredients that you have in your fridge. Don’t break the bank whipping up something new when you can get creative with what’s already in your fridge. This week, I made a fun Cuban-style pork roast for the family. We had a ton left over, so I made this fun […]

Cantaloupe, Banana and Orzo Puree

Orzo is a great choice for babies. Super easy to digest and small enough to swallow, I cook 1 cup of this pasta, add a little butter and my 18-month-old daughter loves it. And so do I! It expands, making you feel fuller longer. When Elle was teething, I would cook up steamed carrots in the […]
