Avocado Banana Muffins

These avocado banana muffins are great to have on hand for a quick breakfast or afternoon snack for your little one. They’re made with honey to sweeten them up, but remember that honey is not recommended for babies younger than one year due to health risks. These muffins are moist, flavorful and healthy. My daughter […]

Veggie Tots

Once kids hit the finger food stage, it can be a challenge giving them healthy snacks with all of the temptations of packaged foods. We like to make these veggie tots to snack on, which can be kept in the refrigerator for a few days to enjoy. They are made with broccoli, carrots, egg and […]

Easy Spinach Hummus

Hummus is a great snack or vegetarian meal option for your baby. It is easy to eat, and full of nutritious ingredients. You are going to love how easy this spinach hummus recipe is to make. A hummus starter pack containing tahini, olive oil and garlic is added to cooked chopped spinach and chick peas […]

Homemade Vanilla Bean Applesauce

There’s one very important thing I have to ask when feeding new foods to my baby: Is this organic? While I was pregnant with Elle, I made sure to take care of myself by eating right, doing daily yoga, and relaxing. Naturally, I want to make sure she’s healthy and safe outside of the womb, too. Every […]

Blueberry Strawberry Pops

I love this popsicle. It’s so easy to make and makes for a refreshing break in the day. This is perfect for babies who are teething, toddlers who are crazy for a sweet snack (crazy enough to stop and sit to enjoy it!), and even you, mom, to relax in the shade with a moment to yourself. […]

No-Bake Cookie Dough Ice Cream Squares

Summer barbecues are the things that culinary dreams are made of. Juicy burgers, fresh tomatoes, corn on the cob… I love everything about standard summer cuisine and its simplicity. While s’mores, watermelon, and ice cream cones are tried and true crowd pleasers, sometimes, putting a little spin on an otherwise delicious, yet predictable, menu can […]

Easiest Ever Homemade Granola

Always a sucker for a bargain, I recently was compelled to purchase four bags of Bob’s Red Mill rolled oats because they were on sale two for $5. How could I resist? The major catch is that I’m the person in my home who actually likes oatmeal, so I probably over did it a tad […]

The Only Mousse Recipe You’ll Ever Need

My personal goal is to eat healthful, organic foods 70 percent of the time. The remaining 30 percent is pretty much devoted to buffalo wings, scotch, and dessert. Of course, I love chocolate anything, but I’m simply obsessed with any kind of lemon or banana-flavored dessert. I’m also infatuated with Cool Whip, so much so […]

Caramel Applesauce

Every time I make applesauce, I’m reminded how it’s probably the easiest thing to do. It has little to no prep, and you could switch up the flavors to whatever your heart, or you little baby’s heart, desires! Recently, my little one was getting FOUR of her molars at the same time, and, needless to […]

Making Your Own Coconut Yogurt

While I tend to drink all kinds of milk, I have a natural tendency to find an alternative to cow’s milk when I can. I don’t have any aversion to cow’s milk, I just began to question why we drink so much of it and why pediatricians push it unto parents and children so much […]
