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 […]

These muffins are healthy and delicious! They’re baby-approved, little kid-approved, and I kinda love them myself.

Lesson 90: Let it go.

Lesson 90: Let it go.

With my first baby, I was all-organic, all the time (not really, but I was pretty picky about his food). With these guys, I’m like, “Here. Have some puffs.” And then I watch them crawl around the floor, fighting it out. It’s like hunting and gathering, so really I’m teaching them a life skill. Save […]

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. […]
