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 […]

This is a yummy recipe for the whole family (though I add a little salt for the adults), but it’s also a fast and easy recipe for baby-led weaning. One batch will feed your baby all week long! Or in the case of double babies, it will still last several days! Here’s what you need: […]

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.

Lesson 88: Consider (real life) Baby-Led Weaning

I don’t think I would have been comfortable doing Baby-Led Weaning (BLW) with my oldest son because I was worried about everything—too much, really. I’m much more relaxed this time around, which I hear is pretty normal. I don’t know if I should attribute it to not being a first time mom, or to having […]

Lesson 85: Listen to your wife

Lesson 85: Listen to your wife

My husband has a hard time remembering things. Or maybe he has a hard time listening. Perhaps it’s a combination of the two, I don’t know. I’ve been told it’s a fairly common husband trait but I’ve nothing to compare him to–he’s the only husband I’ve ever had. I hope he’s the only husband I […]
