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 […]

Homemade Birthday Cake Popcorn Balls

I am a baker and bake for a living. I seem to always be in the kitchen. Either I am making some elaborate cake, dessert, or the simple task of cleaning the kitchen after I have destroyed it. We can all say my life revolves around the kitchen. So, while I am baking or even […]

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. […]

Strawberry Peanut Butter Banana Puree

Babies are so cute and cuddly. The best part for me is when they start to eat. They start using their little taste testers for the first time. Watching the adorable faces they make and the satisfaction they get from the flavors they love always puts a smile on my face. It’s very important that […]

Roasted Yellow Squash with Olive Oil and Cilantro Puree

I find that baby food is a reflection of how we eat. My family and I are eating more healthy lately, since it’s up to me to keep my infant daughter healthy. So, when I’ve gone to the store lately, I end up buying things I normally wouldn’t buy for myself, like carrots. Gross. I’ve […]

Kale Apple Mango Puree

This is a creative blend of baby food. I came up with it one night when I needed to make my little one some food and this is all I had in the fridge. Don’t you just love those days when the fridge is dwindling empty and you have to find your creative juices in […]

Spinach Butternut Squash Puree

When feeding my daughter Elle during her first food days, she loved anything yellow or orange. She couldn’t get enough butternut squash! If she was being picky, we always knew she’d eat that, no questions asked. Unfortunately for me, I can’t stand the smell of steamed butternut squash. That’s because one day, I forgot to add […]

How I Save Time in the Kitchen

This weekend, I had the house to myself — three blessed days of no work, no husband, no kids… no adulting necessary! And I have to admit, just between us, that it was intoxicating to be able to do what I wanted with my own time. I’d get up when I felt like it, walk […]

Papaya Puree

At my house, we love tropical baby foods. I’m always mixing pineapple into savory foods or bananas in with peas. A good smash-up is our thing. Recently, I realized Elle hadn’t tried papaya fruit yet! This fruit is not my favorite because of its musky smell, but my mom loves it and, after trying it, so does […]

Pear Apricot with Coconut Oil Puree

Babies are endlessly cute! Especially when they’re in that new first foods stage. Watching their cute little faces turn their noses up at sour foods, shivering after a taste of peas, we live for these moments. And nowadays, we’re ever so lucky to have our cameras rolling to re-live those darling moments over and over again! Want to […]
