Egg Yolk & Avocado Omelet

Egg whites are usually added later on in a baby’s diet, but that doesn’t mean they can’t still enjoy a yummy omelet. The yolks make this omelet super rich and tender, perfect for your baby’s teeth that are just coming in. The mashed avocado in the middle is also soft enough for baby to chew. […]

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 […]

How I Sneak Veggies Into Everything

  I have a confession to make: I’m a sneak. I’m a liar. I lie and cheat to my children, through food. That’s right. I confess. You’ve caught me red-handed. I have been sneaking spinach and avocado in my son’s banana smoothies for years. Whatever extra protein I can find, whether it’s powdered or in […]

Carrot Zucchini Banana Bread

Once your baby is able to eat breads, this carrot zucchini banana bread is a nutritious snack for him or her. It is made with freshly grated zucchini and carrot, and intense banana flavor. I also use whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour to give it more fiber. You can control how much sugar […]

Pea Pesto Pasta

I love making ‘pesto’ pasta variations for my little babies. This pesto came about when I noticed I had a large bag of frozen peas in my freezer that needed to be used. It’s great because they don’t take a long time to cook up, and you can add all your ingredients to the Baby […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

New Years Puree

Happy New Years! Let’s start this new year with all the good luck we can get! So, as my mom always says, “Eat your black-eyed peas for good luck.” Or wait! Was this a trick to get me to eat my veggies? Anyways, I paired this puree with spaghetti squash. Squash of any kind is […]

Maple Glazed Roasted Carrots

The Holidays are in full swing. Christmas trees are being stocked on the selves and your mail box is stuffed with catalogs for toys, clothes, food, etc… My favorite time of the year is Thanksgiving and Christmas. I love cooking in the kitchen and the wonderful aroma that fills the house from the turkey and […]
