Did you know that eggs contain, in varying amounts, almost every essential vitamin and mineral needed by humans as well as several other beneficial food components*? Now that’s what I’m looking for in a baby food! I introduced Little Bean to the egg yolk last week and it didn’t go quite as I expected, BUT […]
Pumpkins ROCK! Heck, all winter squashes do, and all of them make great baby food. According to NutritionData.com, pumpkins are: a good source of Thiamin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Pantothenic Acid, Iron, Magnesium and Phosphorus, and a very good source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Riboflavin, Potassium, Copper and Manganese. That’s […]
On most days, if you’re needing me from around 3pm-7pm I will be found in one place. That is, wherever my baby’s mouth is. Because, you see, the hours from 3pm-7pm have somehow turned into the cluster feeding hours and I really don’t know how that large of a chunk could get “dibbed” by my […]
I’m fairly new to quinoa. It definitely wasn’t something I grew up with. I didn’t even know it existed until a few years ago. WHFood.com lists quinoa in their top World’s Healthiest Food list because it’s high in protein, magnesium, iron and it’s low in calories. One half cup cooked has about 110 calories, 4 […]

Whenever I mention Butter Beans online I get a lot of funny looks in the form of comments. “What are they?” “Where do you get them?” “What do they taste like?” Butter Beans are simply large Lima Beans. I don’t think I ever realized they weren’t popular until I started food blogging. My mom served […]
Our latest adventure involves one of my absolute favorite veggies: The Red Bell Pepper. I’m a pepper freak. Big Brother’s a pepper freak. It was time to see if Little Bean would follow suit. His reaction was priceless. This was one of my favorite adventures yet.
I haven’t nursed Little Bean since Monday. I thought I’d be a little more emotional about it but the truth is, I don’t mind. I loved nursing both my boys but by 6 months I’m pretty much done with it and so are they. Neither one asked, missed, cried or even seemed to notice when […]
Baby food is normally BORING. Sweet potato. Carrots. Peas. Rice Cereal. Sure they make some combos like summer vegetables or apples with blueberries but there’s no pizzazz to them. I say add a little spice! Little Bean has already had cumin dusted pork chops, greek spiced salmon and mexican chicken. I also add a bit […]
