Here are some more of the recipes I’ve made for Eliana in the last few weeks:


Zucchini Puree


  • – 1 organic zucchini sliced or chopped
  •   Olive oil, chopped garlic, salt and pepper to taste


Heat olive oil in a pan on medium heat. Add zucchini and a pinch of salt and stir. Add garlic and pinch of pepper. Stir and let cook around 4 or 5 minutes till tender but not mushy. Blend.
Let cool slightly before serving to baby.


Potato and Kale Puree

  • – ½ small organic potato- chopped (any kind except sweet potato- leave skin on)
  • – ¼ small yellow onion- chopped
  • – Several leaves of organic purple or green kale- stalk removed- roughly chopped or torn
  • – Olive oil, chopped garlic, salt and pepper to taste

Steam potato and set aside. Steam kale and set aside. Heat olive oil in pan on low-medium heat and add onion, garlic and salt. Cook until golden- around 4 minutes. Combine all ingredients and blend.

  Let cool slightly before serving to baby.

Blueberry Puree

  • – 1 cup frozen, organic blueberries, thawed
  • –  ¼ cup orange juice (or other juice with no sugar added) for sweetness (if needed)

Puree blueberries. If tart, add juice as needed for a bit of sweetness. 

Variation: Mix with oatmeal or yogurt.



Happy Cooking!



My hands got stained while making it.



So why was I surprised that her lips were purple for a day?



I had dressed her in all black. Didn’t anticipate eating (and staining) the strap though. Oops!
