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.

Lesson 57: Not everything has to be organic

When I first started making my own baby food, I went crazy trying to buy all organic, all the time. And then I realized that, not only was that not budget friendly, it also wasn’t necessary. If you, like most of us, are on a budget and need to prioritize your organic purchases, it’s easy […]
