Sweet Corn Quiche

My toddler loves this sweet corn quiche for breakfast, lunch or dinner. For a busy mom, it is one of my favorite dishes to whip up, because it only requires a few ingredients and very little time. Find a pre-made pastry shell and frozen corn at the grocery store to cut down even more time. […]

Chocolate & Greens Popsicle

Babies LOVE cold treats, especially on their sore and teething gums. Popsicles are awesome when it comes to soothing babies, but a lot of times they are loading with tons of unnecessary sugars. I love these popsicles because they taste like chocolate fudge, but have a secret veggie ingredient that no one would even guess! […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]

I love preparing homemade purées for my baby. There is something about watching the process of nutritious, whole foods being cooked, blended up, and finally eaten by my baby that gives me a good feeling inside. Preparing nutritious purées for your baby is not only healthy for your baby, but also very easy to do! […]

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. […]

Holiday Hors d’oeuvres Made Easy

With the holiday season quickly approaching, it is time to begin thinking about what the holiday spreads will include this year. We always go all-out with hors d’oeuvres in my family, so much so that sometimes we have no room to eat the actual holiday meal, but we continue to overindulge and over prepare anyway. […]
