Tuna and Cucumber with Fresh Dill Puree

This is for those adventurous little eaters who are 18-months or older. I’m sure you are thinking tuna? I never would of thought to feed my baby fish. Specialists say babies can eat fish, including canned tuna, after they turn 6 months. Now, I know a lot of people are concerned about mercury in tuna, […]

Red Pepper Alfredo

Small pasta noodles make great finger food for your little one. It is fun to experiment with different homemade pasta sauces. This red pepper alfredo sauce is always a hit with my daughter. It contains a few simple ingredients: red bell pepper, garlic, milk, flour and parmesan cheese. Did you know that bell pepper contain […]

Avocado Cream Cheese Turkey Sandwich

As my baby girl (now a toddler!) grows older, it requires more creativity on my part to keep her entertained during meal time. One of her favorite lunch foods is this avocado cream cheese turkey sandwich in the shape of teddy bears! She finds the cute shape of her sandwich hilarious every time. You can […]

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 […]

Spinach, Chickpea, and Apple Puree

Now that I’m a mom to a 21-month-old, things have changed. Bed time is sooner, my husband and I have to watch what we say, and date night begins around 4 p.m. Most of our dinner parties happen at friends’ houses, and the majority of our friends also have kids and/or newborn babies. When we walk […]

Creamy Avocado and Lemon Pasta

If you love creamy, lemon pasta, but don’t want to consume all of the unhealthy cream, this avocado cream pasta dish is for you! Make it vegan by leaving out the yogurt. This is probably too strong for those who don’t like lemon, but I was in heaven with a large amount of black pepper on top. […]

Grilled Salmon, Broccoli, and Apple Puree

Moving to a new city or, in my case, an entirely new state can be scary. Researching schools and neighborhoods was daunting, although it was fun hunting down our new favorite restaurants. My family and I are definitely adventurous eaters. We like to get out of our comfort zone and try new food trucks, ethnic cuisines, flavors, you name […]

Potato Leek Soup

This recipe comes from a simple little cookbook that I picked up in Ireland while traveling. The cookbook is an unassuming paperback, almost pocket size but contains practically any Irish recipe you can think of that’s made with potatoes. If you haven’t heard of Colcannon, you have to check it out! I tried my hand […]

Kale, Wild Rice and Shiitake Casserole

Looks may be deceiving when it comes to this flavor-packed vegetable casserole. Come on, you know that casseroles are notoriously ugly, but they’re surprisingly delicious! This dish was a test run for our family’s ever growing vegetarian repertoire, and it came originally from our local farm produce co-op. Mushroom lovers, try adding more than the recipe suggests; since this casserole […]

Asian Baked Tofu and Eggplant

Ahh, a healthy, simple and filling protein-packed recipe for baked tofu that the whole family can enjoy. Is it too good to be true? This recipe says no! In fact, even my toddler ate this one up. This recipe comes from PBS Food; I made some minimal adjustments, doubling the sauce recipe, substituting half of […]
