Healthy Snacks

I know you must be thinking, “man, this woman REALLY likes yogurt!”

I know you must be thinking, “man, this woman REALLY likes yogurt!”

And you’d be wrong. I don’t like it all that much. Well, I didn’t until I learned to make my own. I never particularly cared for the sweet mixed with tart flavor combination of store-bought yogurt, but the great thing about homemade yogurt is that the tartness increases the longer you incubate it. So if […]

Homemade Yogurt, Part 2: Make it any flavor you want!

Homemade Yogurt, Part 2: Make it any flavor you want!

In my last post, I explained how to make your own yogurt using just an Instant Pot, a yogurt starter, and milk. If you’ve already attempted to make your own, you probably figured out pretty quickly that you can flavor it any way you want! So far, I’ve only made it as snacks for my […]

Introducing my latest obsession (and money saver!): Homemade Yogurt for the Win (I accidentally typed “wine” there, because habits)!

Introducing my latest obsession (and money saver!): Homemade Yogurt for the Win (I accidentally typed “wine” there, because habits)!

This is my second post in a row about the Instant Pot. I realize that may seem a bit…obsessive. And it kinda is, but in a healthy way. This thing does all the things: pressure cook, slow cook, saute, steam, sterilize… And it makes yogurt….delicious yogurt! And I don’t even like yogurt! My children, however, […]

Cauliflower “Potato” Cakes and Pineapple Sweet Potato Cakes

Cauliflower “Potato” Cakes and Pineapple Sweet Potato Cakes

I’ve recently had a change of heart. Up until just a few months ago, I hated cauliflower. It looks too much like broccoli for my taste, so for years I’ve despised it based on appearance alone. But I had no idea what you could do with cauliflower in disguise! My first attempt at disguising cauliflower […]

Apple-Carrot Muffins

Apple-Carrot Muffins

These muffins are healthy and delicious! They’re baby-approved, little kid-approved, and I kinda love them myself. This is a great recipe for baby led weaning, finger foods, breakfast, toddler snacks, or after-school snacks. And bonus, they thaw nicely if you want to freeze some. I make a big batch of them and store them in […]

Baby-approved Smoothies

Baby-approved Smoothies

I sent this picture to my mom the other day and she commented that he was losing that baby look and starting to look like a little boy. Problem is, he’s 10 months old. He is a baby, and he’s underweight. I responded to her text with, “That’s called malnutrition.” Of course, he’s not really […]

Chocolate Apple Sweet Potato Muffins

Chocolate Apple Sweet Potato Muffins

I spent today making foods and freezing them for the babies. It’s a bit of work, but it’s really one of my favorite things to do. I’m not artsy or crafty; I can’t draw, I can’t paint, and any craft I attempt is a big Pinterest Fail. But playing with ingredients and mixing up recipes […]

Tonight’s adventure with BLW: Apples!

Tonight’s adventure with BLW: Apples!

We tried whole apples tonight and it was….interesting. They’ve had cooked apples before, so they were soft and easy for them to negotiate. But whole, hard, large apples were a tough new experiment for them. I took bites all around their apples so they could have a place to grip, and a place to bite. […]

Baby-Led Weaning Pumpkin Pie

Baby-Led Weaning Pumpkin Pie

Just in time for Thanksgiving, the perfect Baby-Led Weaning recipe for pumpkin pie! This was one of our first BLW foods and it was a big hit! There’s no added sugar, so you can feel (mostly) good about giving it to your little one. It’s is a 3-day recipe only because the ingredients need to […]
