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 […]

Brussel Sprouts, Potato, and Squash Puree

Here is a fun, adventurous recipe for your baby that you can introduce around the 8-9 month mark. I know a lot of babies love potato. It’s so easy to fix and, as adults, you can’t say it’s hard to enjoy a baked potato. Ever since moving back to Texas, I can’t help ordering chopped brisket in my […]

Cucumber with Squash and Chicken Puree

The most silly faces my little Elle gave me came when I fed her cucumbers. I love her reactions to new foods and cucumbers were incredibly comical! Lets just say she did not like them. Squash, she loved. And she started eating chicken like it was going out of style. So, one day I added all these […]

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 […]

Butternut Squash and Brown Rice

My little Elle loved, loved, loved butternut squash as a baby. Actually, she loved when I steamed any vegetable that was orange. She loved carrots, sweet potatoes, you name it… But then, at 16 months, her love for the orange vegetable began to wave. How can she be growing up this fast? This made me […]

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 […]

Grilled Chicken, Avocado and Butternut Squash Puree

Butternut Squash Puree

Super simple and sweet. Kenya was addicted to butternut squash as a baby and still loves it to this day! It’s also a great thing to keep on hand to mix into other purees. Butternut Squash was one of Kenya’s first foods. Smooth, creamy and easy for baby to get down. This is a must […]

Ménage a Squash!

When I first began my CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), I oftentimes found myself scratching my head and feverishly looking up recipes in order to prepare some of the “mystery ingredients.” Come fall in New England, many twisted, multi-colored, and sometimes downright spooky-looking squashes arrive. I don’t mean to brag, but in a few years’ time, […]
